This is where it all started! Eight-year-old Alice McKinley wants pierced ears, really long hair, a pet, and, most of all, a mother. Oh, and some friends would be nice. As the new girl in third grade, Alice doesn't know a single person in Takoma Park, Maryland, except for her next-door neighbor Donald Sheavers, who not only is a boy, but also seems to be a little bit peculiar! Desperate to meet people, Alice learns that making friends is harder than it seems when she runs into a group of girls whom she nicknames "the Terrible Triplets" after they make it very clear that they do not want to get to know Alice. On top of all this, Alice also has to keep an eye on Donald's recently divorced mom, who seems to have her eye on Alice's dad! This is the first of three prequels to Phyllis Reynolds Naylor's beloved Alice series. Now younger girls can get to meet the girl everyone wants to be best friends with, and older girls will enjoy finding out how Alice came to be the Alice they know and love.

Das neue Buch der Nobelpreisträgerin Alice Munro! Niemand erzählt eindringlicher davon, wie es wäre, ein neues Leben zu beginnen, als die große kanadische Autorin Alice Munro. »Dir diesen Brief schreiben ist wie einen Zettel in eine Flasche stecken und hoffen, er wird Japan erreichen«, schreibt Greta in der ersten Erzählung und schickt diese Zeilen an Harris, den Zeitungsreporter, der sie nach einer Party fast geküsst hätte. Aber eben nur fast. Auf wenigen Seiten kondensiert Alice Munro die geheimen Träume ihrer Figuren. Vierzehn neue brillante Erzählungen, die mit einem furiosen Finale enden: vier Geschichten, in denen sie so persönlich wie nie (»die ersten und die letzten Dinge, die ich über mein Leben zu sagen habe«) von sich selbst erzählt.

In der geheimen Welt des verborgenen Wissens hat die Macht einen schrecklich hohen Preis Quentin Coldwater steht kurz vor dem Abschluss der Highschool. Die Schule langweilt ihn – wie ihn eigentlich alles langweilt außer Fillory, das magische Land aus den phantastischen Büchern, die er liebt. Doch plötzlich findet sich Quentin, der gerade noch durch Brooklyn gelaufen ist, selbst in einer magischen Welt wieder, an einer geheimen Zauberschule: Brakebills College. Und auch Fillory gibt es wirklich. Aber es ist keine heile Welt, sondern ein düsterer Ort, von dem eine schreckliche Bedrohung ausgeht. Quentin und seine Freunde begeben sich auf eine gefährliche Reise – und müssen sich einem alles entscheidenden Kampf stellen... »Fillory verhält sich zu Harry Potter wie ein Glas Whiskey zu einem Becher dünnen Tees. Fest verankert sowohl in der Tradition des Fantasyromans als auch in der der allgemeinen Literatur, spielt er an auf die Welten von Oz und Narnia - auch Harry Potter lässt grüßen. Aber glauben Sie ja nicht, das sei ein Kinderbuch. Grossmans Gefühlswelten sind durch und durch erwachsen, seine Erzählweise düster, gefährlich und voller überraschender Wendungen. Hogwarts war nie so« George R. R. Martin, Das Lied von Eis und Feuer – A Game of Thrones
