Zombie Elementary : the real story by Howard Whitehouse( Book )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 213 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Larry Mullet is your typical fourth grader. He's not the biggest kid or the smartest kid or the best looking kid. He rides his bike, plays baseball, takes the school bus, avoids cafeteria food, and--oh yeah, he's a zombie hunting expert. Larry was just doing his usual thing when Alex Bates from Ms Hoag's class tried to eat him. Sadly, that was only the beginning. Something odd was going on at Brooks Elementary... and it was up to Larry and his friends to take charge (for some reason). Hilariously told interview-style as a record of the REAL story, and peppered with zombie tips and facts, zombie cheerleaders and plenty of gore, this book will be a surefire hit for anyone interested in a ghoulishly good life-or-death comedy

Die schlimmste Schule der Welt : die Geschichte eines schlauen Mädchens, eines Jungen aus Gummi und einer Sammlung überwiegend kaputter Flugmaschinen by Howard Whitehouse( Book )

3 editions published in 2008 in German and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fliehen durch fliegen! In diesem Buch geht es im wahrsten Sinne des Wortes um die Frage, wie man aus einem Internat fliegt! Emmaline, ein englisches Mädchen von vierzehn Jahren, wird von ihren Eltern, die in Indien leben, in die älteste und strengste Mädchenschule von England gesteckt, damit sie dort die ihr angemessene Bildung und das ihrem Stand geziemende Benehmen erhält. Sehr bald merkt Emmaline jedoch, dass dieses Internat wie ein Gefängnis ist, in dem die Rektorin wie ein Drache jeden Schritt der Mädchen überwacht. Alles wird verboten und das Essen ist abscheulich. So hat Emmaline nur eines im Sinn: Flucht! Zum Glück hat sie sich in den Monaten vor der Internatszeit bereits mit Flugmaschinen auseinandergesetzt und so gelingt ihr am Ende eine spektakuläre Flucht mit einem selbstgebastelten Drachen. Das Buch liest sich spannend wie ein Krimi und zeigt die ganze Bandbreite von menschlichen Charakteren auf. Es ist unterhaltsam, fantasievoll, nicht immer realistisch und doch wie im rechten Leben. Besonders Mädchen werden viele Identifikationsfiguren finden. Sprachlich sehr gefällig, leicht zu lesen. Ab 12 Jahren, ****, Patricia Hacker
