also, ich mag einen roman total gut leiden, den noch kein mensch als schullektüre gemacht hat, glaube ich:
von Anne Fine
er ist sehr lustig und auch sehr ernst und man kann sehr viel daran "aufziehen".
Hier ne rezenson von amazon:
Gr. 5-9. A hulk of a lad with a reputation for mischief, Simon Martin is as unenthusiastic as his English boys' school classmates at the prospect of learning about parenting by carrying around and writing about a flour baby, a six-pound bag of flour. Even Mr. Cassidy, the boys' beleaguered teacher, has his doubts about the task as a viable school project, especially for the obstreperous boys in Room 8. However, when Simon (mistakenly) concludes that the three-week experiment will end with a glorious classroom flour free-for-all, he can't wait to take part. Once into the task, though, he discovers it's not the promise of an avalanche of white stuff that keeps him involved but rather what caring for the flour bundle forces him to face about himself and the dad who walked out when Simon was a baby. There's no mistaking Fine's underlying theme (she's not a bit subtle), but it's couched in such splendid, trenchant humor--spiffy one-liners, funny, well-devised characters, and hilarious situations--that the story simply flies along. It's easy to laugh when Simon pours his heart out to a bag of flour or scolds his usually mild-mannered friend for launching his "baby" into the local drink. But best of all is Fine's final vivid image of gleeful Simon, cloaked in flour and newfound wisdom: He has figured out that his dad no longer matters--"only the people who know you really count." A poignant, gloriously funny book with a strong message for readers
