With its whimsical content, conversational tone, and jovial characters, The Flying Classroom is a unique bit of prose with a timeless feel. While the narrative seems a bit disjointed to start, the reader soon becomes accustomed to the style, and it proves a wholly satisfying means of bringing pieces of the story together. An enjoyable and clever read. ( )

Mit leiser Melancholie und warmem Humor erzählt Kästner von den Abenteuern der Internatsjungen und lässt uns ihre kleinen und großen Sorgen verstehen.
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

Martin's school is no ordinary school. There are snowball fights, kidnappings, cakes, a parachute jump, a mysterious man called 'No-Smoking' who lives in a railway carriage and a play about a flying classroom. As the Christmas holidays draw near, Martin and his friends - nervous Uli, cynical Sebastian, Johnny, who was rescued by a sea captain, and Matthias, who is always hungry (particularly after a meal) - are preparing for the end of term festivities. But there are surprises, sadness and trouble on the way - and a secret that changes everything.… (more)
