Endlich erfindet wieder jemand das Pop-Science-Erklärbuch neu! Wenn xkcd.com einen neuen Science Cartoon postet, vibriert das Internet. Sein Blog What if, auf dem der Physiker Randall Munroe jede Woche scheinbar unsinnige Fragen mit exakter Wissenschaft und genialen Strichmännchen beantwortet, ist Kult. Wie lange würde es dauern, bis wir merken würden, dass sich der Erdumfang verändert? Was wäre, wenn der gesamte Niederschlag in einem – quasi omnidirektionalen - Überschall-Regentropfen fiele? Endlich auch als Buch und endlich auf Deutsch!

Because of their popularity, books in series are great vehicles for fostering literacy among all types of readers, who are almost always adamant about reading every title in the series--in series order. Yet traditional information sources on children's and YA literature include very little about series fiction, so librarians often have difficulty managing this literature. This guide will be a rich resource and time-saver for librarians who work with children. It introduces users to the best and most popular fiction series of today, covering more than 1,000 series with over 10,000 titles, appropriate for elementary readers. Annotations also indicate series and titles accepted by some of the popular electronic reading programs (e.g., Accelerated Reading, Reading First). A numbered list of titles in the series follows.

Aravind Adigas dritter Roman erzählt von zwei jungen Brüdern auf der Suche nach sich selbst, vom Sport als Aufstiegschance und gnadenlosem Wettbewerb, von jungen Talenten und alten Talentsuchern, von Liebe und Ausbeutung, von Leidenschaft und Gewalt. Manjunath Kumar ist vierzehn. Er weiß, dass er ein guter Kricketspieler ist, vielleicht sogar so gut wie sein älterer Bruder Radha. Er weiß, warum er seinen dominanten und sportbesessenen Vater fürchtet, seinen brillanten Bruder bewundert und von der Welt amerikanischer Serien sowie interessanter wissenschaftlicher Fakten fasziniert ist. Aber es gibt vieles, das er noch nicht weiß – über sich selbst und die Welt um ihn herum. Als er Radhas großen Rivalen kennenlernt, einen privilegierten Jungen voller Selbstvertrauen, beginnt sich für Manju alles auf den Kopf zu stellen und er muss Entscheidungen treffen, die seine Welt verändern. Suggestiv und sensibel, bissig und schwungvoll – ein neuer, eindrucksvoller Roman des indischen Bestsellerautors und Booker-Prize-Gewinners
