With novels that have been perennial favourites since childhood, I often find it both nigh impossible to in any way post a review that is for one adequately laudatory of either the author or his/her story (at least according to my own rather stringent criteria) and for two is in any manner even remotely critical (even with regard to parts that do in fact warrant this) And with this in mind, I have had my probably very favourite German language Christmasthemed children's classic, Erich Kästner's Das Fliegende Klassenzimmer (The Flying Classroom) languishing as rated with five stars and on my favourites shelf but unreviewed for many years (even though I do tell myself every December that it is indeed high time to attempt a written review, to tell my Goodreads friends just how much I love this novel and how much it has in fact meant to me over the years) And now, although it is indeed no longer December 2017 any, but early January 2018, I have finally decided to take the proverbial bull by its horns so to speak and to attempt a review of Das fliegende Klassenzimmer, of probably my favourite novel by Erich Kästner, period, and to not care or rather to attempt to not care whether my review is expansive and congratulatory enough and to also not be all that academically, intellectually bothered with regard to probably still being rather blind with regard to many of the potential issues with regard to datedness, gender stratification and the like (because well, for a novel that was originally penned in the 1930s, Das Fliegende Klassenzimmer remains surprisingly fresh, new and with attitudes and philosophies that are still both important and essential for not only children but also for adults).Within the framework of a boarding school (an all boy's boarding school, of course, but really, the scenarios and issues shown within the pages of Das fliegende Klassenzimmer are in my opinion part and parcel to many schoolthemed stories, both unigender and coeducational, and really childhood in general), Erich Kästner portrays the importance of friendship, loyalty, overcoming personal fears and phobias and that remembering and yes also embracing one's childhood and one's past are essential for becoming a responsible and yes a likeable and respectworthy adult (not to mention that while one is supposed to fight to master childhood trauma and problems, one also needs to remember it, to accept it and that it will always be a part of one's psyche and life, and that therefore, Johnny Trotz being abandoned by his father as a toddler will never leave him as a memory, and since he is a writer, will probably also make its way into his texts, his printed words, that Martin Thaler will always due to his family's issues with unjust unemployment and resultant poverty have a permanent sense of social justice and attempt to fight against what he perceives as injustice, just as universally loved teacher Dr Bökh aka Justus has remembered how he suffered as a student at boarding school because his teachers were not particularly pleasant and approachable and has as a teacher striven to make himself someone whom his students can trust and turn to with their problems, with their both small and not so small problems and sadnesses) And really, Erich Kästner's glowingly positive depiction of Dr Bökh has (I strongly believe) also been one of my main and lifelong career influences, for as an instructor of German at the college and university level, I have always and gladly first and foremost had my students and their intellectual welfare in mind, that they need to learn the material necessary as painlessly and in as easy to understand a fashion as possible, and that instructing with a fair and easily comprehensible approach is muchimportant and necessary than class averages and somehow keeping these in the socalled but to and for me rather artificial and silly BellCurve.Absolutely and most highly recommended is Erich Kästner's Das fliegende Klassenzimmer, and if you have not yet encountered the novel either in its original German or in some of the (and yes, pretty wellthan decent) English language translations (and I know there are also versions in French, Spanish etc.), do go and read it, either now, or as a Christmas read (treat) for December 2018 (and the only minor caveats I do have to give is that for one, there are indeed scenes of schoolyard fist and snowball fighting shown when the Gymnasium and the Realschule students duke it out and for two, cigarette smoking is unfortunately both featured and not really condemned all that much, but that is in facta sign of the times, as in the 1930s, cigarette smoking was generally still considered as not all that problematic and even often seen as a right of passage from childhood to being a bitmature). Translated into English as The Flying Classroom.For the longest time I've always associated the 'right books' with immense bouts of depression Since I was a kid, I would happily spend the day reading tonnes of charming little tales about brave princes, mysterious elves and clever talking tigers But then some busybody teacher would inevitably ruin my enjoyment by letting me know that these books were not ageappropriate any I needed to read stories withdepth! I would generally relent and give the suggested books a try, only to end up neck deep in melancholy And people wonder why kids are reluctant to take up readingHow about telling them about an author's trials in finishing a story that is 2 years overdue? Let them giggle at his pathetic attempts to claim that Christmas stories cannot possibly be penned in August Failing that, tell them about giving butterflies auspicious names like Gottfried, in attempt to hone their stalling techniques.As for the story itself, wouldn't your inner child rather read about rowdy kids preparing for their winter holiday? Now don't dismiss these activities as meaningless, just because of our protagonists' age: waging a snowballfight to liberate your friend, or protect your school's honor is no small feat Plenty of planning is needed for this Tactical approach to battle, stalling methodology to gain time to liberate the captive, and not least dealing with the consequences of unauthorized rule breaking.Still seems too cheerful a representation of the real world? How about being 'unfairly' stuck in detention while your sick mother is waiting for you to visit her at the hospital?By the end of the story, I was freely bawling my eyes out This is the kind of story you should want 12yearolds to discuss Not stuffy old poems, entrenched so deep in their own metaphors that even the teachers have to rely on heavy guesswork to analyze them.The only thing I was not too keen on, were the chapter titles They gave away the entire plot of the story!Score: 4.2/5 starsThis is the kind of story that will make children want to dive into a book and not emerge until they've scoured its every nook and cranny. Children's story set in a boy's boarding school, focusing on a group of friends.The title comes from the story within the story the group of friends are preparing a play to be performed before the Christmas holidays, it is called ?, the idea of this play is that in the school of the future, learning will be experiential, you want to teach children about volcanos well you'll pack them into a plane and fly to one, history fly to the pyramids and so on.In the time honoured way of plays within plays what this alerts us to is that the learning within the fictional school is also experiential, it is not the formal top down lessons which count in the formation and leading forth of the young people towards adult life (which giving the date of publication may include dying on the eastern Front in the bleak midwinter) it is the feud with the neighbouring school in the same town , the bullying in the classroom and how pupils respond to it, the attempt of one boy to demonstrate to himself and the world that he is truly brave.We're shown that so long as you can successfully avoid death in wars, the influence of informal experiential learning is life long as shown in the contrast between the relationships of the school boys and those of the school director and his eventually rediscovered friend.It's overwhelmingly the story of how good deeds prompt others to do better and be better people, which makes it an appropriate Christmas book I suppose. The first time I read this book was about 20 years ago, and I have loved the book ever since Probably apart from my textbooks which, whether I like or not, I had to read repeatedly in high school and college, this is the book that I’ve been reading again and again from the first to the last page for most times.The story is set in an allmale boarding school – or to be exact a Gymnasium called JohannSigismund in Germany Unlike many other books about teens living in dorms, the story does not last a term, but instead only portrays a couple of days in the life of five Obertertia students They’re preparing for their Christmas musical performance, but at the same time they also have to face several important events, from schoolbrawls over silly reasons against the student of the local Realschule (isn’t that big!) and personal troubles Although written in a relaxed, funny manner, the book also deals with problems like selfconfidence, selfesteem, poverty, loneliness, doubts about the education system – the things that have been, and will always be, haunting teens of every age And the teens in DFK, although they may live tens of years ago, are characters that we can still relate to in this time and age There’s the poetic, dreamy Johnny; there’s the sharp, lonewolf Sebastian; there’s the intelligent, proud Martin; there’s timid, ‘cowardly’ Uli; there’s rough but basically kindhearted Matz There are a lot of things that we can learn and ponder from the book, although the book itself does not feel patronizing Kastner carried out his main purpose as an author of books such as Das Fliegende Klassenzimmer: he told a story, and he did it well He built characters, without wasting too many words trying to describe them all; as we follow the dialogues and the events, we can understand the characters involved in the book.Truly a gem.(By the way, if you try to Wiki this book, some of the information in the page was provided by yours truly Yes, I love the book that much.) Well, I know I like children book They are all special for a person like me (who doesn't really want to grow up) But this book is so unique and the way Erich Kaestner wrote his dry humor in this book is really one of his kind.You will meet the little Uli von Simmern, a wanna be a boxer Matthias Selbmann, the smartest Martin Thaler, the sarcastic Sebastian Frank and the author Johnny Trotz in this Germany boys boarding school story.All of them are mixed up together From funny story when Professor Kreuzkamm asked his own son about the accident of the burning books in the classroom OMG, so hillarious! Friendship, happy story and closed with one touchy story about Martin who wanted so badly to go home to celebrate chrismast with his parents.I read books about girl, specially those who also go to a boarding school (Enid Blyton's Mallory Towers or St Clare series) So this book really gives me boy's point of view. I had a bout of nostalgia the other day, and just had to read this again Still love it, still cried. Four stars for the heartmelting factor as the ending!:) I read the book for the first time years ago, its Indonesian translation, to be exact The book is about a group of students in JohannSigismund Gymnasium, in the last days before their Christmas break Erich Kastner was superb in creating so humanly characters, the plot is fantastic, and to this day I am still heartened by the boys' friendship One question remains lingering on my mind, though: are the school principal and his longlost friend actually gays? DNF @ 25% I was trying to read it with a student but it was soooo boring. {DOWNLOAD PDF} Ã Das fliegende Klassenzimmer Ý شهامت بدون هوشیاری و هوشیاری بدون شهامت پوچ است تاریخ بشر زمانهای بسیاری را به یاد دارد که در آنها مردمان شجاع ناهوشیار و مردم هوشیار بزدل بوده اند هرگاه آدمهای هوشیار با شهامت و آنها که شهامت دارند هوشیار شوند، بشریت پیشرفت می کندنویسنده در حالی که به این مطالب تقریبا فلسفی فکر می کرد تصمیم گرفت نوشتن داستان عید را شروع کند داستانی که در مدرسه ‌شبانه روزی شکل می گیرد و در آن،‌ سخن از شجاعها و ترسوها، آدمهای عاقل و مردم نادان استبا اجرای نمایشنامه “کلاس پرنده“ ، بالاخره بعضی بچه ها یاد خواهند گرفت که زندگی نه با پول درآوردن شروع می شود، و نه با آن به پایان می رسد یاد می گیرند که نه هیج وقت خودشان را گول بزنند و نه اجازه دهند دیگران آنها را گول بزنند ازناکامیها نهراسند و بخوبی با ناگواریها رو به رو شوند تسلیم مشکلات نشوند و… Another winner that should be better known outside of its home country By the author of Emil and the Detectives, this story is just as enjoyable.Bookended by a writer trying to come up with a Christmas story, the book is then set in a boarding school in Germany, with a period feeling of Tom Brown's Schooldays, Morpurgo's The War of Jenkins' Ear and Kipling's Stalky and Co as well as the fun of Harry Potter and Matilda It's a little adventure of the boys there, with stolen exercise books, a play to perform, Masters with secrets, and Christmas holidays to look forward to (or not) The characters are very likeable though it took me a while to distinguish one from another.I was actually quite moved near the end, and thoroughly enjoyed the quite naive and innocent style of the story I also liked the distinctly traditional illustrations.Very nice period school tale, I can see myself reading this with my son in a few years time For solo readers of 9 and above, good for bedtime with parents from around age 7.
