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

The day the Melkerson family arrive on Seacrow Island, it's a bit of a shock to their system. It's so quiet there-none of the shops and bustle they're used to. And the cottage they've rented for the summer is a little bit well ...basic. But what Seacrow Island does have is woods to wander in, fish to catch, boats to sail in, and all kinds of animals. And before long they find it has even more important things, too-adventure, fun, exploration, friends. Perhaps it's going to be leaving that's the really hard thing?

'I made him know his Name should be Friday, which was the Day I sav'd his Life...I likewise taught him to say Master' Robinson Crusoe's seafaring adventures are abruptly ended when he is shipwrecked, the solitary survivor on a deserted island. He gradually creates a life for himself, building a house, cultivating the land, and making a companion from the native whose life he saves. Daniel Defoe's enthralling story-telling and imaginatively detailed descriptions have ensured that his fiction masquerading as fact remains one of the most famous stories in English literature. On one level a simple adventure story, the novel also raises profound questions about moral and spiritual values, society, and man's abiding acquisitiveness. This new edition includes a scintillating Introduction and notes that illuminate the historical context.

Each affordable volume reflects Oxford's commitment to scholarship, providing the most accurate text plus a wealth of other valuable features, including expert introductions by leading authorities, helpful notes to clarify the text, up-to-date bibliographies for further study, and much more.

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.

Harry is furious that he has been abandoned at the Dursleys' house for the summer, for he suspects that Voldemort is gathering an army, that he himself could be attacked, and that his so-called friends are keeping him in the dark. Finally being rescued by wizard bodyguards, he discovers that Dumbledore is regrouping the Order of the Phoenix - a secret society first formed years ago to fight Voldemort. But the Ministry of Magic is against the Order, lies are being spread by the wizards' tabloid, the Daily Prophet, and Harry fears that he may have to take on this epic battle against evil alone.
