Genre: Fiction

Die Welt verstehen, ohne einen Fuß vor die Tür zu setzen Was bleibt nach der „Geschichte von fast allem“ eigentlich noch zu schreiben? Die Geschichte von fast allem anderen, natürlich. Bill Bryson hat sich daher in seinen vier Wänden umgesehen und sich gefragt: Warum leben wir eigentlich, wie wir leben? Warum nutzen wir ausgerechnet Salz und Pfeffer, und weshalb hat unsere Gabel vier Zinken? Aber es bleibt nicht bei Geschichten von Bett, Sofa und Küchenherd. Die Geschichte des Heims ist auch immer eine der großen Entdeckungen und Abenteuer. Ohne die Weltausstellung in London hätte man vermutlich das Wasserklosett nicht so schnell zu schätzen gelernt. Und ohne die großen Entdecker müssten wir wohl ohne Kaffee, Tee oder Kakao auskommen. Bill Bryson zeigt uns unser Heim, wie wir es noch nie gesehen haben. Und wir verstehen ein wenig mehr, warum es so ist, wie es ist.

Genre: Animals

Nächtliche Entführung aus dem Zoo: Der Zoowärter dreht seine Runde im Zoo und wünscht allen Tieren eine gute Nacht. Dabei bemerkt er nicht, dass ihm der schlaue Gorilla den Schlüsselbund entwendet. Dieser trottet ihm hinterher und entlässt ein Tier nach dem anderen klammheimlich aus dessen Käfig. Vom Elefanten bis zum Gürteltier folgen nun alle Tiere dem müden Wärter bis in sein Schlafzimmer, wo sich alle gemütlich schlafen legen. Als die Wärtersfrau ihrem Schatz gute Nacht wünscht, antwortet die ganze Tierschar darauf höflich. Die Frau erschrickt und bringt pflichtbewusst alle Ausreisser zurück in ihre Käfige, ausser dem gefitzten Gorilla, der es wieder schafft, sich bei den Eheleuten genüsslich einzunisten. Ein lustiges Zoonachbereitungs- und Einschlafpappbuch mit köstlichen Bildern, das mit wenigen Worten sehr aussagekräftig ist und in Amerika bereits zu einem Riesenerfolg wurde. Wunderbar auch schon für die Kleinsten ein wahrer Bilderbuchschatz. Ab 3 Jahren, ausgezeichnet, Silvia Zanetti.
