A JUNIOR LIBRARY GUILD SELECTION Do you believe everything you read in the newspaper? Early in August 1937, a news flash came: a sea monster had been spotted lurking off the shore of Nantucket Island. Historically, the Massachusetts island had served as port for whaling ships. Eyewitnesses swore this wasn’t a whale, but some new, fearsome creature. As eyewitness account piled up, newspaper stories of the sea monster spread quickly. Across the nation, people shivered in fear. Then, footprints were found on a Nantucket beach. Photographs were sent to prominent biologists for their opinion. Discussion swirled about raising a hunting party. On August 18, news spread across the island: the sea monster had been captured. Islanders ran to the beach and couldn’t believe their eyes. This nonfiction picture book is a perfect tool to discuss non-political fake news stories. Back matter discusses the freedom of the press guaranteed by the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. Quotes from Thomas Jefferson make it clear that fake news has always been one of the costs of a free press. A Timeline lists actual events in the order they occurred. A vocabulary list defines relevant words.

Die wahre Geschichte hinter dem Klassiker Moby Dick – verfilmt mit Starbesetzung Was jetzt als »Major Motion Picture« in die Kinos kommt – produziert von Oscar-Preisträger Ron Howard (A Beautiful Mind – Genie und Wahnsinn) –, hat schon als Buch seine Leser gefesselt. Nathaniel Philbrick erzählt die wahre Geschichte jener Ereignisse, die Herman Melville zu seinem Roman Moby Dick inspiriert haben: Im November 1820 wird der Walfänger Essex mitten auf dem Pazifik von einem Pottwal gerammt. Das Schiff kentert, doch die 20 Mann starke Besatzung kann sich auf drei kleine Beiboote retten. Knapp 4000 Kilometer westlich der südamerikanischen Küste beginnt für die Männer eine beispiellose Odyssee: Drei Monate lang segeln sie in offenen, notdürftig aufgetakelten Booten und ohne ausreichend Proviant über eine feindliche See – und stoßen dabei an die Grenzen ihrer Menschlichkeit.

Is it a strange mammal related to the seals, a descendant of a prehistoric reptile, or a new, unidentified animal? Whatever it is, or was, the witnesses call it a sea serpent. Remarkably similar descriptions of a creature with a long body, undulating motion, and horse-sized, snake-like head have left a trail of clues and controversy going back three centuries. In "The Great New England Sea Serpent," J.P. O'Neill draws on the historical record as well as previously unpublished first-hand accounts to chronicle more than 230 sightings of the mysterious marine creatures inhabiting the Gulf of Maine.

From slightly demented humans to spinetingling paranormal encounters, each outlandish occurrence is detailed with thorough research and recounted with a storyteller's crafted voice.

Die Memoiren eines Jahrhundertautors Was macht das Leben eines Schriftstellers aus? Mit dem Welterfolg Der Spion, der aus der Kälte kam gab es für John le Carré keinen Weg zurück. Er kündigte seine Stelle im diplomatischen Dienst, reiste zu Recherchezwecken um den halben Erdball – Afrika, Russland, Israel, USA, Deutschland –, traf die Mächtigen aus Politik- und Zeitgeschehen und ihre heimlichen Handlanger. John le Carré ist bis heute ein exzellenter und unabhängiger Beobachter, mit untrüglichem Gespür für Macht und Verrat. Aber auch für die komischen Seiten des weltpolitischen Spiels. In seinen Memoiren blickt er zurück auf sein Leben und sein Schreiben. »Mitreißend, unterhaltsam und spannend wie einen Thriller erzählt le Carré in Der Taubentunnel sein Leben.« Buchjournal „Le Carré ist ein so lebenskluges Buch gelungen, dass man seine zahlreichen Aphorismen am liebsten auswendig lernen möchte.“ Frank Herold, Berliner Zeitung Zu unserer Autorenseite: www.ullstein.de/lecarre

„Ängstlich in das Dunkel starrend blieb ich stehn, verwundert, harrend ...“ „Der Rabe“ brachte Edgar Allan Poe den Durchbruch als Lyriker. Sein bekanntestes Gedicht zählt bis heute zum unvergänglichen Erbe der Dichtkunst. In 108 Versen schildert er den mitternächtlichen Besuch eines Raben bei einem Verzweifelten, dessen Geliebte Lenore starb. Die erste deutsche Übersetzung von Elise von Hohenhausen findet sich hier neu interpretiert und illustriert von Marta Monika Czerwinski. Der Name steht für schaurige und düstere Abgründe: Edgar Allan Poe (1809-1849) gilt als Wegbereiter des Symbolismus und Meister des subtilen Horrors. Poes Gedichte, Erzählungen und Kurzgeschichten zählen zu den großen Werken seiner Zeit.
