“The title of this sly and extremely funny book is also the title of a paper that [Peter Leroy] is assigned by his science teacher, the luscious, leggy Miss Rheingold. We — and Peter... More > — learn quite a bit about Miss Rheingold, although nowhere near as much as Peter would like. We also learn about epistemology; the boundaries of the self; the building of backyard lighthouses; terrazzo floors; Chinese Checkers; American education; the restricted vision of children (and their parents); and the design of such exquisitely intricate gadgets as the phonograph, the scanning tunneling microscope, the universe, and the novel. . . . Like childhood itself, Where Do You Stop? is filled with wonders. It is a book designed to leave its readers — and it deserves many of them — as happy as clams.” — Walter Satterthwaite.

More > Freund und soll dafür unverhofft König der Nibelungen, den tapfersten Rittern seiner Zeit, werden. Mit der Nibelungenkrone, einem magischen Schwert und durch Drachenblut unverwundbar, macht sich Siegfried später auf, um noch ein etwas anderes Abenteuer zu bestehen. Er erobert das Herz der schönen Kriemhild und verhilft deren Bruder, dem Burgundenkönig, zu seiner Traumfrau.

Neid und unerfüllte Liebe treiben ihn dazu an, einen Mordkomplott zu schmieden, der Siegfried das Leben kostet. Nur hat er seine Rechnung ohne Kriemhild gemacht, die den heimtückischen Mord an ihrem Mann bitter rächt.< Less
