Der Leuchtturm auf den Hummerklippen by James Krüss ( Book )
34 editions published between 1956 and 2011 in German and Undetermined and held by 106 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Rez.: Der 1997 verstorbene J. Krüss hat mit diesem bunten Geschichtenbuch 1956, als es erstmals erschien, seinen Ruhm als Erzähler begründet. Kaum eine Bücherei wird noch eine der früheren Auflagen (hier zuletzt BA 6/79) im Bestand haben. Jetzt bietet sich die Gelegenheit, ein Buch anzuschaffen, das, ein Klassiker fast schon, nichts von seinem Zauber eingebüßt hat. Krüss, auf Helgoland geboren, bleibt im heimischen Umfeld, wenn er von Johann, dem Leuchtturmwächter, erzählt, der mit der Möwe Alexandra befreundet ist. Sie erzählt gern Geschichten, etwa vom Poltergeist Hans im Netz, der als Antwort Seltsames von der Puppe Agleja mitteilt. Auch Tante Julie, der Wassermann Marre und die Maus Philine hören und erzählen mit Begeisterung Geschichten, die Krüss zu einem fantasievollen Reigen zusammenfügt. Geschichten müssen nicht wahr, sie müssen schön sein. Vielfach variiert taucht dieser Satz auf. Er könnte als Maxime über Krüss' Gesamtwerk stehen, Leitsatz seines humorvoll-fantastischen, fröhlichen Fabulierens. - Sehr zu empfehlen

Wehe, wenn die Hunde losgelassen...: Der Reiz des Buches besteht im Zusammenspiel zwischen den kurzen Versen und den lustigen Bildern. Dabei hält die Zahl 3 das ganze Karussel auf Trab. Die drei Füchse vertreiben die drei Hühner, die drei Katzen die Mäuse aus ihrem Haus. Dann aber jagen die Füchse ihrerseits die Katzen, weil selbst auf der Flucht vor den drei Hunden. Und die drei Hunde fliehen vor den drei Jägern. Alle sind irgendwie zugleich Jäger und Gejagte. Aber schliesslich sind die struppigen Hunde wieder an der Leine der Jäger, und die Tiergesellschaft kommt endlich zur Ruhe. Ab 4 Jahren, ausgezeichnet, Ruedi W. Schweizer
