It was Christmas Eve. Big snowflakes fluttered slowly through the air like white feathers and made all of Heavenly Valley smooth and white and quiet and beautiful. So begins the story of two orphaned sisters at Mrs. Monday's Boarding School. But nothing is heavenly for Nancy and Pamela (aka Plum): their parents died in a tragic accident years ago, they're constantly punished by the cruel Mrs. Monday, and they're all alone for the holidays. Luckily, Nancy and Plum have each other, and though their prospects may be bleak, they're determined to change their lot for the better. If their plan works, the spirited sisters will never spend Christmas at the cold, dark boarding school again. But what will they find on the other side of Mrs. Monday's gate' Adventure, warmth, unforgettable characters, and unexpected kindness abound in this classic story by Betty MacDonald, which was originally published in 1952. With illustrations by the acclaimed Mary GrandPre and an introduction by Jeanne Birdsall, National Book Award'winning author of The Penderwicks, this edition introduces the spunky, beloved heroines to a new generation of fans.

Zeit ist vergangen. Sie sind nun 8 Penderwicks; eigenwillige Charaktere allesamt. Rosalind, die älteste, und Skye plagen sich mit Gefühls- und Liebesturbulenzen, Jane schreibt an ihrem Roman über das Leben. Batty hat ihre Singstimme entdeckt, Ben sammelt Steine und die kleine, wilde Lydia hält die Familie auf Trab. Alles scheint wie immer - ein prächtiges Familienteam! Bis Batty aus einem belauschten Gespräch herauszuhören glaubt, sie sei schuld am Tod ihrer Mutter, die krebskrank nach Battys Geburt starb. Batty stürzt in eine tiefe seelische Krise, verschliesst sich, versucht, ihrer Not zu entkommen, beschwört Ben, von dem zu schweigen, was er weiss. In einem wunderbar einfühlsamen Gespräch gelingt es dem Vater, Battys Kummer aufzulösen. - Sascha Icks liest voller Anteilnahme, erkennt Situationskomik hier, Irritationen da, Gefühlsnot dort. Für alles und die verschiedenen Charaktere findet sie stimmlichen Ausdruck. So zieht ihre Lesung in Bann, erweitert das Buch um eine neue Dimension! Kurze Musikphasen für Gitarre oder Klavier erlauben Atempausen. Empfehlenswert. Ab 10
