1942: il Ghetto di Varsavia attraverso gli occhi di un bambino. Un'insolita storia di sogni, paure, giochi e poesia. «L'Olocausto è la mia infanzia e c'erano molte cose belle e divertenti allora, che non si possono avere se si cresce invece in tempo di pace. [...] Volevo scrivere di un bambino nel ghetto che diventa una sorta di Robinson Crusoe in una città vuota: per sopravvivere prende dalle altre case ciò che gli serve come Robinson prendeva dai relitti di altre navi sospinte sulla spiaggia dalle onde». Uri Orlev

L’autobiografia di Uri Orlev, il più grande scrittore israeliano per ragazzi, autore dell’Isola in via degli uccelli. Questa è la storia di come un ragazzo ebreo attraversa l’Olocausto e diventa scrittore. Ma non è un racconto di disperazione, malgrado le atrocità e le tante morti di cui l’autore purtroppo da piccolo è stato testimone, né di sentimentalismi. Orlev ha vissuto esattamente come un bambino qualsiasi, con il coraggio e la straordinaria forza vitale dell’infanzia, come il protagonista di un’avventura, eroe invincibile di un racconto.

When Peter's parents are killed, he is sent to an orphanage in Warsaw, Poland. But Peter is Volksdeutscher-of German blood. With his blond hair and blue eyes, he looks just like the boy on the Hitler Youth poster. The Nazis decide he is racially valuable. Indeed, a prominent German family is pleased to adopt such a fine Aryan specimen into their household. But despite his new "family," Peter feels like a foreigner-an ausländer-and he is forming his own ideas about what he sees and what he's told. He doesn't want to be a Nazi. So he takes a risk-the most dangerous one he could possibly choose in 1942 Berlin. . . . Paul Dowswell weaves meticulous research into a thrilling narrative, exposing a different angle of the horrors of Nazi Germany.

BONUS: This edition contains a Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet discussion guide and an excerpt from Jamie Ford's Songs of Willow Frost. "Sentimental, heartfelt….the exploration of Henry’s changing relationship with his family and with Keiko will keep most readers turning pages...A timely debut that not only reminds readers of a shameful episode in American history, but cautions us to examine the present and take heed we don’t repeat those injustices."-- Kirkus Reviews “A tender and satisfying novel set in a time and a place lost forever, Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet gives us a glimpse of the damage that is caused by war--not the sweeping damage of the battlefield, but the cold, cruel damage to the hearts and humanity of individual people. Especially relevant in today's world, this is a beautifully written book that will make you think. And, more importantly, it will make you feel." -- Garth Stein, New York Times bestselling author of The Art of Racing in the Rain “Jamie Ford's first novel explores the age-old conflicts between father and son, the beauty and sadness of what happened to Japanese Americans in the Seattle area during World War II, and the depths and longing of deep-heart love. An impressive, bitter, and sweet debut.” -- Lisa See, bestselling author of Snow Flower and the Secret Fan In the opening pages of Jamie Ford’s stunning debut novel, Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet, Henry Lee comes upon a crowd gathered outside the Panama Hotel, once the gateway to Seattle’s Japantown. It has been boarded up for decades, but now the new owner has made an incredible discovery: the belongings of Japanese families, left when they were rounded up and sent to internment camps during World War II. As Henry looks on, the owner opens a Japanese parasol. This simple act takes old Henry Lee back to the 1940s, at the height of the war, when young Henry’s world is a jumble of confusion and excitement, and to his father, who is obsessed with the war in China and having Henry grow up American. While “scholarshipping” at the exclusive Rainier Elementary, where the white kids ignore him, Henry meets Keiko Okabe, a young Japanese American student. Amid the chaos of blackouts, curfews, and FBI raids, Henry and Keiko forge a bond of friendship–and innocent love–that transcends the long-standing prejudices of their Old World ancestors. And after Keiko and her family are swept up in the evacuations to the internment camps, she and Henry are left only with the hope that the war will end, and that their promise to each other will be kept. Forty years later, Henry Lee is certain that the parasol belonged to Keiko. In the hotel’s dark dusty basement he begins looking for signs of the Okabe family’s belongings and for a long-lost object whose value he cannot begin to measure. Now a widower, Henry is still trying to find his voice–words that might explain the actions of his nationalistic father; words that might bridge the gap between him and his modern, Chinese American son; words that might help him confront the choices he made many years ago. Set during one of the most conflicted and volatile times in American history, Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet is an extraordinary story of commitment and enduring hope. In Henry and Keiko, Jamie Ford has created an unforgettable duo whose story teaches us of the power of forgiveness and the human heart.

A Nature Book of the Year (The Times (UK)) “The hoverflies are only props. No, not only, but to some extent. Here and there, my story is about something else.” A mesmerizing memoir of extraordinary brilliance by an entomologist, The Fly Trap chronicles Fredrik Sjöberg’s life collecting hoverflies on a remote island in Sweden. Warm and humorous, self-deprecating and contemplative, and a major best seller in its native country, The Fly Trap is a meditation on the unexpected beauty of small things and an exploration of the history of entomology itself. What drives the obsessive curiosity of collectors to catalog their finds? What is the importance of the hoverfly? As confounded by his unusual vocation as anyone, Sjöberg reflects on a range of ideas—the passage of time, art, lost loves—drawing on sources as disparate as D. H. Lawrence and the fascinating and nearly forgotten naturalist René Edmond Malaise. From the wilderness of Kamchatka to the loneliness of the Swedish isle he calls home, Sjöberg revels in the wonder of the natural world and leaves behind a trail of memorable images and stories. From the Hardcover edition.

Questa è la storia di Eliusha, cinque anni, che all'inizio della Seconda guerra mondiale si trasferisce con la sua famiglia dalla cittadina in cui vive nell'Unione Sovietica in una zona desolata del Kazakistan. Mentre suo padre raggiunge l'esercito russo per combattere contro i nazisti, Eliusha e la sua famiglia devono affrontare la nuova vita in un villaggio sperduto, dove gli abitanti hanno abitudini completamente diverse dalle loro. Gli inizi sono duri, ma Eliusha lentamente conquista l'amicizia dei coetanei. Quando finisce la guerra, la madre decide di intraprendere un lungo e pericoloso viaggio, e di trasferirsi in Israele, la terra che molti chiamano 'casa'. Così il piccolo è catapultato nella vita di uno dei primi kibbutz, simbolo della nascita dello Stato di Israele. Ispirato a una vicenda vera come Corri ragazzo, corri, il nuovo romanzo di Uri Orlev è un'avventura densa di emozioni, ma anche una fonte preziosa per conoscere la Storia più recente e l'impatto che ogni guerra produce sulla vita di adulti e bambini innocenti.
