  • Sprookjes

    The Brothers Grimm

    Fictie (young adult) Drieenzeventig meer of minder bekende sprookjes. Op grond waarvan juist deze sprookjes uit de oorspronkelijke 210 gekozen zijn, wordt niet vermeld. Deze keuze lijkt willekeurig. Dat geldt ook voor de bewerking van de tekst. Sommige verhalen zijn wat uitgebreid zonder dat de strekking verandert. In andere verhalen zijn slechts wat woorden en zinsconstructies veranderd. Dat levert geen mindere, maar ook geen betere tekst op. Het boek bevat veel zwart-wit tekeningen, waarvan de meeste wat cliche-matig zijn. Ieder verhaal begint met wat versieringen en een versierde hoofdletter. Verder bevat het boek zeven met waterverf geschilderde platen, die twee pagina's vullen en die betrekking hebben op een verhaal. Sommige daarvan zijn wat verwarrend, omdat in een plaat een beeld gegeven wordt van verschillende situaties uit een verhaal. Geen register, verantwoording of achtergrondinformatie, wel een inhoudsopgave. Door de vele tekeningen, het duidelijke lettertype en de fel gekleurde kaft ziet het
  • Uit het leven van Dik Trom

    Cornelis Johannes Kieviet

    Fictie (young adult) Bij de naam Dik Trom moet iedereen onmiddellijk denken aan de dikke jongen die vol streken zit maar een hart van goud heeft. Al vanaf zijn vroege kinderjaren beleeft Dik het ene avontuur na het andere, zoals die keer dat hij in de wastobbe van zijn moeder in het kanaal uit varen gaat. Later trekt hij er vaak met zijn vrienden Piet van Dril en Jan Vos op uit. De ene keer nemen de ze driftige veldwachter Flipsen in de maling, dan weer zien ze een boomgaard waar zoveel lekkere dingen hangen dat niemand een paar appels of peren zal misen. Vaak hoort Diks vader pas als hij weer thuiskomt van zijn werk, wat zijn zoontje die dag allemaal heeft uitgehaald. Hoofdschuddend hoort hij de verhalen van zijn vrouw an, maar op elk avontuur van Dik reageert hij met: "Griet, 't is een bijzonder kind, en dat is-ie!".

  • De schat in het Zilvermeer

    Karl Friedrich May

    Romantische fictie (young adult) Om uiteenlopende redenen, o. a. de aanwezigheid van een schat, trekken verschillende groepen naar het Zilvermeer. Old Firehand, Winnetou en vrienden achtervolgen de beruchte moordenaar de Rode Cornel en zijn tramps. Ook Old Shatterhand voegt zich later bij hen. Het verhaal werd met didactisch pedagogische bedoelingen voor een jongenstijdschrift (Jrg. 1890-1891) geschreven. Om identificatie met de jeugdige personen niet in de weg te staan gebruikte de auteur voor Old Shatterhand de 3e persoon i. p. v. de ik-vorm. Bovendien treden Winnetou en Old Shatterhand respectievelijk pas in het achtste en in het elfde hoofdstuk op waardoor ze nog meer op de achtergrond blijven en andere personages een actievere rol kunnen spelen. Werd een van de personages in een voorgaand deel Tante Grol genoemd, in dit deel heet zij Tante Frolic naar analogie van de gelijknamige Spectrumuitgave waarvan de tekst inclusief vertaalfout vrijwel in zijn geheel is overgenomen. Ook de vervanging van Lord Castlepool do
  • Het Geheimzinnige Eiland

    Jules Verne

    Fictie (young adult) Op zekere dag vinden de vijf luchtschipbreukelingen (zie ook: Het geheimzinnige eiland; de luchtschipbreukelingen, a. i. 78-27-120/121) een fles met een bericht van een schipbreukeling op het eiland Tabor, die aanvankelijk niet spreekt en een achtergelaten schurk blijkt te zijn. Alle vreemde gebeurtenissen zijn hierdoor niet opgelost. Uiteindelijk blijkt kapitein Nemo van de Nautilus (20. 000 mijlen onder zee) daarvoor verantwoordelijk. Na een vulkaanuitbarsting verdwijnt hun eiland in de oceaan en worden ze op het nippertje gered. Ondanks de wat plechtstatige en breedsprakige stijl nog steeds boeiend om te lezen.

  • Gulliver's Travels

    Jonathan Swift

    Fictie (young adult) Travels into Several Remote Nations of the World. In Four Parts. By Lemuel Gulliver, First a Surgeon, and then a Captain of Several Ships, better known simply as Gulliver's Travels (1726, amended 1735), is a novel by Irish writer and clergyman Jonathan Swift, that is both a satire on human nature and a parody of the "travellers' tales" literary sub-genre. It is Swift's best known full-length work, and a classic of English literature. The book became popular as soon as it was published. John Gay wrote in a 1726 letter to Swift that "It is universally read, from the cabinet council to the nursery." [1] Since then, it has never been out of print. Cavehill in Belfast is thought to be the inspiration for the novel. Swift imagined that the mountain resembled the shape of a sleeping giant safeguarding the city. [2]

    Jean Macé

    Fictie (young adult) Natuurlijk zijn sprookjes slechts verzinsels maar deze zijn best wel leuk en hebben stuk voor stuk een educatief gehalte.

Met een beetje geluk (of hoop) zou het ook zo maar kunnen zijn dat ze zich er (tijdelijk althans) ook nog iets van aan zullen trekken. De verhalen zijn simpel genoeg voor kinderen van de basisschool, maar ook volwassen mensen (waaronder ik mezelf ook reken) kunnen deze korte verhaaltjes misschien wel waarderen.

  • Garbage! Monster! Burp!

    Tom Watson

    Fictie (young adult) A monster at the bottom of a hill eats all of the garbage generated by the town on top of the hill. This provides two important benefits: The monster is happy with plenty to eat and the town stays nice and clean. Unfortunately, as the town grows, so does the amount of garbage the monster must consume. He gets bigger - and he starts burping. This is, as you can probably guess, a bit unsightly and stinky. In the end, the kids figure out how to solve the problem - despite the nasty mayor's doubts and objections. Tom Watson's books for kids are gaining a wide and appreciative audience. His traditional picture books are written in a rhythmic rhyming style and illustrated with vivid cut-paper pictures. His Stick Dog adventures are longer form and marked by a distinct narrative voice, simple pastel pictures and an offbeat (some would say downright strange) sense of humor. His books have consistently ranked very high on the children's free and paid lists on iBooks.

Forced to leave her home in the tranquil rural south,  Margaret Hale settles with her parents in the industrial town of Milton where she witnesses the harsh brutal world wrought by the industrial revolution and where employers and workers clash in the first organised strikes. Sympathetic to the poor whose courage and tenacity she admires and among whom she makes friends, she clashes with John Thornton, a cotton mill manufacturer who belongs to the nouveaux riches and whose contemptuous attitude to workers Margaret despises. The confrontation between her and Mr Thornton is reminiscent ofElizabeth Bennet and Mr Darcy in Pride an

  • Dutch Fairy Tales for Young Folks

    William Elliot Griffis

    Sprookjes, mythen en fabels (young adult) Long ago, in Dutch Fairy Land, there lived a family of mere or lake folks dwelling not far from the sea. Their home was a great pool of water, half salt and half fresh -- for it lay around an island near the mouth of a river. Swimming out in the salt water, the mermaids would go in quest of pearls, coral, ambergris and other pretty things. These they would bring to their queen, or with them richly adorn themselves. Thus the Mermaid Queen and her maidens made a court of beauty -- famed wherever mermaids and merrymen lived. And they often talked of human maids. "How funny it must be to wear clothes!" said one. "Well, I should like to be a real woman for a while, just to try it, and see how it feels to walk on legs," said another, rather demurely -- as if afraid the other mermaids might not like her remark. Out rang a lusty chorus, "No! No! Horrible! What an idea! Who wouldn't be a mermaid".
