Inhalt

The Flying Classroom

Jonathan is only twelve, but he′s already gone through six boarding schools. His last chance is Leipzig′s St. Thomas School, home of the world-famous boys′ choir. And for Jonathan, there′s no better place to be. As he makes friends with his roommates, they take him to their secret meeting place: an abandoned train car. There they discover a mysterious stranger named Bob one day – and the script for a play, "The Flying Classroom". With new music and rap lyrics, it′s going to be the kids′ personal contribution to the school′s Christmas show. Even the rebellious Mona agrees to join them since… well, since she′s never met anyone as sweet as Jonathan. Unaware of the play′s author and what it means to their favorite teacher Justus, the kids unwittingly trigger a turbulent chain of events. But in the end, their adventures open their eyes to the value of friendship and civil courage – and even bring two old friends back together, Bob and Justus, who′d been separated for years by inhumanity and injustice.
