Mehr über den Autor

Als Kind war Louis Sachar (1954) ein guter Schüler, aber noch kein besonders großer Leser. Erst in der Highschool entwickelte er sich zu einem richtigen Bücherwurm, Autoren wie J. D. Salinger, Margaret Atwood und Kazuo Ishiguro gehörten dabei zu seinen Favoriten. Später studierte Louis Sachar Wirtschaftswissenschaften und Jura. 1976 entschloss er sich außerdem, ein Kinderbuch zu schreiben. Da er tagsüber einem Job nachging und nur am Abend zum Schreiben kam, brauchte er neun Monate bis zur Fertigstellung. Auch später, als Anwalt, arbeitete Louis Sachar nur Teilzeit, um sich weiterhin dem Schreiben widmen zu können. Diese Hartnäckigkeit hat sich gelohnt: Inzwischen sind seine Bücher so erfolgreich, dass er die Anwaltsrobe an den Nagel hängen konnte.

Produktbeschreibungen

Pressestimmen

'Louis Sachar is one of the few masters of American fiction' Independent on Sunday Praise for 'Holes': 'Magic and hard realism come crashing together. This is an extraordinary and unconventional novel' Observer 'An exceptionally good novel' Sunday Times Praise for 'Sideways Stories from Wayside School': 'Thirty clever, fast-moving stories that describe the bizarre events at Wayside School ... each story is refreshingly different' Guardian

Synopsis

Marvin cannot get to sleep. It's late, the ground is hard in Nick Tuffle's garden, he is far too full on cake and he has drunk too much punch. Then he hears a low humming noise. He feels the earth shudder beneath him and there is a bright flash - sort of the same colour as the green icing on Nick's birthday cake. Is he dreaming or was that a flying birthday cake, candles aglow? Perhaps something much stranger is on the horizon -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

What makes this a standout even among the Marvin Redpost series is the subtlety. As usual, Marvin is faced with a puzzling reality, in this case a new boy at school who never changes his clothes and who has serious glitches in his knowledge base. And, as usual, Marvin is faced with a moral dilemma, in this case: should he be friends with this misfit whom he discovers he actually likes? Marvin, never speculates that this boy could be from outer space, but the reader certainly does. In the end we are left wondering, is he, or isn't he?

Anyone who's read any of the Marvin Redpost books knows what a delight they are. This one has some of the funniest moments in the entire series. It's well worthwhile. (As an aside, note that, now that Louis Sachar has won the Newbery and the National Book Award for "Holes," Horn Book has begun to review his books with the respect they have always deserved.)

terrific series for beginning readers 7. Juli 2004
Von audrey - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Marvin Redpost is a third grader whose friends don't like the new kid in school, Joe Normal, but he finds that Joe is friendly and fun. What should he do? The dialogue is funny, and even though the text is easy enough to be enjoyed by beginning readers the concepts of friendship and family are not too simplistic.
We found this fun book at a garage sale, and based on the interesting characters and fun plot, we will get more of this series.

Disappointed by the Title 14. August 2006
Kinder-Rezension - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I liked the book and I don't want to tell you what happens, but The Flying Birthday Cake has nothing to do with a flying birthday cake! If you are expecting a birthday cake to fly, you might be a little disappointed like I was.
Heavy-handed and missing focus 10. Januar 2014
Von C. Aleo - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
My third-grader asked me to join a school book club with her, which I have dutifully read for every month. Unfortunately, aside from the single Judy Blume title (FRECKLEJUICE), I haven't enjoyed a single one of them.

Louis Sachar is an award-winning children's writer (for HOLES), and the Marvin Redpost series (of which A FLYING BIRTHDAY CAKE is a part) has been very popular.

However, neither my third-grader nor I particularly cared for the book.

Mind you, it's a bit beneath her reading level at this point, but even if it did take her longer than 30 minutes to read this, I'd still probably have the same reaction: just because readers are children doesn't mean they need to be hammered over the head.

The book seems to lose its train of thought at several places. It begins at a sleepover party, then a new boy arrives at school. We have the moral story of "it's good to not go along with the crowd when they're bullying that is so outrageous even my daughter said "Uh, is the teacher even there?" and then some allusion back to the beginning of the story.

At times it's difficult to even tell who the main character is supposed to be, especially at the beginning, and the entire story seems awkwardly set up.

It leaves me to wonder whether the market is so small for chapter books because so many of them seem designed just to get children to read words rather than actually make them want to know more about a story.

Birthday Bash 26. Januar 2010
Von J. L. Washburn - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Joe, Marvin's mysterious friend, is very much like one of the strange characters from Sachar's Wayside series. Fortunately for the reader, however, Sachar never really gives away Joe's background. By choosing to write the book this way, Sachar gives it a very strong moral that centers on the pleasure one can receive from reaching out to peculiar kids, and he also gives it somewhat of a science-fiction quality that rings with a peculiar realism. One wonders at the end why something like this could not happen somewhere at some point in time, especially considering prevalent social norms and how people are more willing to gossip to friends and family about a strange occurrence rather than go to the police or the newspaper about something they suspect that is just strange or peculiar. I thought the book was great, and I'm 32.
