Achtung, die Herdmanns sind zurück by Barbara Robinson( Book )

9 editions published between 2008 and 2012 in German and Undetermined and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dem 1974 erschienenen Klassiker rund um ein Krippenspiel "Hilfe, die Herdmanns kommen!" folgten in den USA 2 weitere erfolgreiche Bände. Der 3. - der im Englischen unter dem Titel "The Best Halloween Ever" gleich verrät, um was es geht - setzt jetzt in deutscher Übersetzung die Aufregung um die 6 chaotischen Herdmannkinder fort. Die unglaublichen Aktionen der "schlimmsten Kinder aller Zeiten", die Mitschüler drangsalieren, Lehrer in Angst und Schrecken versetzen und Eltern schockieren, führen zu einem Halloweenverbot des Bürgermeisters, verbunden mit einem Süßigkeitenverbot in den Läden. Stattdessen soll an der Schule eine von Eltern und Lehrern organisierte und kontrollierte, im Idealfall herdmannfreie Alternativfeier stattfinden. Sie droht zum schlimmsten, weil komplett störungsfreien Halloween aller Zeiten zu werden - bis die Herdmanns eingreifen. Erneut gelingt Barbara Robinson eine herzerfrischende, temporeiche Story über Vorurteile, soziale Außenseiter und ein augenzwinkernder Blick hinter die Fassade der verhassten Störenfriede. Halloweengruselig-witzig illustriert und unbedingt empfohlen. . - Die 6 Herdmann-Kinder haben mit ihren chaotischen Aktionen das Fass zum Überlaufen gebracht: Jetzt gibt es ein Halloween-Verbot in der Stadt. Die alternative Party in der Schule droht zur langweiligen Katastrophe zu werden, aber die Herdmanns greifen ein
