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.   The Flying Classroom is a magical, thrilling and bittersweet story about friendship, fun and being brave when you are at your most scared. (It also features a calf called Eduard, but you will have to read it to find out why).… (more)

I fell in love with this story, it was so charming, moving and simply wonderful, I couldn't stop reading it! It's a school story, a group of boys living in a boarding school and their teachers and their adventures in a week before Christmas. If you want to read a heart-warming story in which teachers are supportive and love their job, I highly recommend this book. ( )

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. ( )

Book description
In dieser klassischen Internatsgeschichte, die Erich Kästner selbst für sein bestes Kinderbuch hielt, wird deutlich, dass die Kindheit nicht nur 'aus prima Kuchenteig gebacken' ist. Mit leiser Melancholie und warmem Humor erzählt Kästner von den Abenteuern der Internatsjungen und lässt uns ihre kleinen und großen Sorgen verstehen.
