'They're changing guard at Buckingham Palace - Christopher Robin went down with Alice.' Curl up with A. A. Milne’s classic book of poetry for children, When We Were Very Young. This is the first volume of rhymes written especially for children by Milne – as popular now as when they were first written. Featuring E. H. Shepard’s original illustrations, this collection is a heart-warming and funny introduction to children’s poetry, offering the same sense of humour, imagination and whimsy that we’ve come to expect from Milne's favourite books about Winnie-the-Pooh, that Bear of Very Little Brain. Do you own all the classic Pooh titles? Winnie-the-Pooh The House at Pooh Corner When We Were Very Young Now We Are Six Also look out for Return to the Hundred Acre Wood and The Best Bear in all the World (coming soon) The nation’s favourite teddy bear has been delighting generations of children for 90 years. Milne’s classic children’s stories – featuring Piglet, Eeyore, Christopher Robin and, of course, Pooh himself – are both heart-warming and funny, teaching lessons of friendship and reflecting the power of a child’s imagination like no other story before or since. Pooh ranks alongside other beloved character such as Paddington Bear, and Peter Rabbit as an essential part of our literary heritage. Whether you’re 5 or 55, Pooh is the bear for all ages. A.A. Milne is quite simply one of the most famous children’s authors of all time. He created Winnie-the-Pooh and his friends Piglet, Eeyore, Tigger, Kanga and Roo based on the real nursery toys played with by his son, Christopher Robin. And those characters not only became the stars of his classic children’s books, Winnie-the-Pooh and The House at Pooh Corner, and his poetry for children, they have also been adapted for film, TV and the stage. Through his writings for Punch magazine, A.A. Milne met E.H. Shepard. Shepard went on to draw the original illustrations to accompany Milne’s classics, earning him the name “the man who drew Pooh”.

A collection of poems reflecting the experiences of a little English boy growing up in the early part of the twentieth century. Quotes from the book: “She turned to the sunlight / And shook her yellow head, And whispered to her neighbor: Winter is dead.” “If people ask me, / I always tell them: Quite well, thank you, / I'm very glad to say.” “And Teddy worried lots about / The fact that he was rather stout. He thought: "If only I were thin! / But how does anyone begin?” Readers' reviews: “Verses full of bubbling nonsense and rhythm, written for the author's son, Christopher Robin. It is for "very small children (and for their elders who get a surreptitious joy from what is meant for their little ones).” (Sunday Review) “Utterly charming and lovely--delightful rhythm, fun rhymes, and illustrations that fit it perfectly!” (Qt, goodreads.com) “One for every generation. A necessity for a child to grow up with.” (Georgie, goodreads.com)

Die kraftvolle und inspirierende Autobiografie der ehemaligen First Lady der USA Michelle Obama ist eine der überzeugendsten und beeindruckendsten Frauen der Gegenwart. Als erste afro-amerikanische First Lady der USA trug sie maßgeblich dazu bei, das gastfreundlichste und offenste Weiße Haus zu schaffen, das es je gab. Sie wurde zu einer energischen Fürsprecherin für die Rechte von Frauen und Mädchen in der ganzen Welt, setzte sich für einen dringend notwendigen gesellschaftlichen Wandel hin zu einem gesünderen und aktiveren Leben ein und stärkte außerdem ihrem Ehemann den Rücken, während dieser die USA durch einige der schmerzlichsten Momente des Landes führte. Ganz nebenbei zeigte sie uns noch ein paar lässige Dance-Moves, glänzte beim „Carpool Karaoke“ und schaffte es obendrein auch, zwei bodenständige Töchter zu erziehen – mitten im gnadenlosen Blitzlichtgewitter der Medien. In diesem Buch erzählt sie nun erstmals ihre Geschichte – in ihren eigenen Worten und auf ihre ganz eigene Art. Sie nimmt uns mit in ihre Welt und berichtet von all den Erfahrungen, die sie zu der starken Frau gemacht haben, die sie heute ist. Warmherzig, weise und unverblümt erzählt sie von ihrer Kindheit an der Chicagoer South Side, von den Jahren als Anwältin und leitende Angestellte, von der nicht immer einfachen Zeit als berufstätige Mutter sowie von ihrem Leben an Baracks Seite und dem Leben ihrer Familie im Weißen Haus. Gnadenlos ehrlich und voller Esprit schreibt sie sowohl über große Erfolge als auch über bittere Enttäuschungen, den privaten wie den öffentlichen. Dieses Buch ist mehr als eine Autobiografie. Es enthält die ungewöhnlich intimen Erinnerungen einer Frau mit Herz und Substanz, deren Geschichte uns zeigt, wie wichtig es ist, seiner eigenen Stimme zu folgen.

Spanning three decades, Lanford Wilson's urban plays constitute a neat summation of his achievements as a dramatist. In Discovery and Invention, Anne M. Dean demonstrates that they also provide superb examples of his ability to extricate every ounce of poetry from ordinary language. From the youthful experimentation dominating every aspect of Balm in Gilead (1964), to the contrast of the almost traditionally conceived and lyrical The Hot l Baltimore (1973) and, finally, to the sheer linguistic versatility of Burn This (1987), Wilson has proven himself to be a challenging and adaptable dramatist whose works perfectly match the spirit of the times. Wilson is, above all, an American playwright; his work bestrides the United States, reflections of his experiences echoing throughout plays variously set in remote farming communities, small towns, and big cities. Wherever he has settled, Wilson has utilized the landscape as a dramatic canvas, recreating the language he has heard there into a peculiarly translucent form of dramatic poetry, as well as finding ways of peopling his plays with imaginatively conceived composites of his friends and acquaintances. The diversity of his life experience has enhanced his appreciation of humanity in all its forms; people are important to Wilson, and he invariably strives to tell their story with honesty and humor. Constant throughout his drama, both rural and urban, is his fundamental humanity and compassion for those he dramatizes. An analysis of Wilson's work reveals several recurring themes: the importance of individuality and personal history, the necessity to preserve the past and learn from it and, especially, the importance of familial support - surrogate or otherwise. These themes recur throughout Wilson's drama, but are nowhere more importantly demonstrated than in the three urban plays considered in this volume. Above all, Wilson wants to tell the truth; for him, reality is almost - but not quite - enough. By creating his drama out of his own rich life experiences, he finds little need to exaggerate. Eugene Ionesco once observed that one discovers more than one invents, and that invention is really discovery or rediscovery. Wilson has displayed a tendency to adhere to this concept: all playwrights rely upon their own experiences to some extent, but for Wilson this strategy is more than an aid to creativity; it is the raison d'etre for his drama. Wilson combines a subtle artistry with the pragmatics of everyday life and creates resonant and exciting theatre, incidentally illustrating the proficiency with which he is able to "lift ordinary speech and dance it just a little" to create language that is at once as vital as real speech and as complex as dense verse.

What’s Love Got to Do with It: Die Lebensgeschichte einer der größten Pop-Ikonen unserer Zeit „Liebe hat mein Leben gerettet. Davon will ich erzählen.“ Tina Turner, die Königin des Rock ’n‘ Roll, wird bald 80 Jahre alt. Unter dem Eindruck einer lebensbedrohlichen Erkrankung, die sie aufgrund einer wunderbaren Wendung überwinden konnte, schildert sie erstmals ihre „ganze Geschichte“, wie sie sagt. Private Dancer, Simply the Best, I Can’t Stand the Rain – jeder, der Tina Turners Musik hört, ahnt etwas von ihrer Energie, ihrem Lebenswillen und nie versiegendem Mut, die sie aus der Enge der Kindheit in Tennessee auf die Bühnen der Welt brachten. Mit ihrem Ehemann Erwin Bach durfte sie schließlich auch das lang ersehnte persönliche Glück erleben. „My Love Story“ ist eine Liebeserklärung an das Leben und die zutiefst bewegende und inspirierende Überlebensgeschichte einer starken Frau. Das Buch enthält zahlreiche Abbildungen, darunter viele bisher unveröffentlichte aus Privatbesitz.
