Product Description
Jonathan Wild, born about 1682 and executed at Tyburn in 1725, was one of the most notorious criminals of his age. His resemblance to the hero in Fielding's satire of the same name is general rather than particular. The real Jonathan (whose legitimate business was that of a buckle-maker) like Fielding's, won his fame, not as a robber himself, but as an informer, and a receiver of stolen goods. His method was to restore these to the owners on receipt of a commission, which was generally pretty large, pretending that he had paid the whole of it to the thieves, whom for disinterested motives he had traced. He was a great organiser, and he controlled various bands of robbers whose lives he did not hesitate to sacrifice, when his own was in danger. Naturally he was so hated by many of his underlings that it is a wonder he was able to maintain his authority over them as many years as he did. His rascality had been notorious a long time before his crimes could actually be proved. He was executed at last according to the statute which made receivers of stolen goods equally guilty with the stealers.

Beyond this general resemblance, the adventures of the real Jonathan, so far as we know them, are not much like those of the fictitious. True, the real Jonathan's married life was unhappy, though his quarrel with his wife did not follow so hard upon his wedding as the quarrel of Fielding's hero and the chaste Laetitia. Not until a year from his marriage did the real Jonathan separate from his spouse, after which time he lived, like Fielding's, not always mindful of his vows of faithfulness. Like Fielding's, too, he was called upon to suppress rebellions in his gangs, and once he came very near being killed in a court of justice by one Blake, alias Blueskin. Apart from these misadventures, the experiences of Fielding's Wild seem to be purely imaginary. "My narrative is rather of such actions which he might have performed," the author himself says, [Footnote: Introduction to Miscellanies, 1st ed., p. xvii.] "or would, or should have performed, than what he really did. ... The Life and Actions of the Late Jonathan Wild, got out with characteristic commercial energy by Defoe, soon after the criminal's execution, is very different from Fielding's satirical narrative, and probably a good deal nearer the truth."

5-0 out of 5 stars Teacher from balck lagoon
This is a wonderful story. Just so suitable for the first week of school. The reaction from my students in Year 3 was amazing, and it spurred them on to write some funny stories about their own teacher "from the black lagoon".

5-0 out of 5 stars Unsuitable for wussies and adults with control issues..
And there are several pathetic examples of the latter group in this review section.My 5 y/o grandson adored this book.Healthy kids love this stuff. How do you wimps deal with real life?


5-0 out of 5 stars A Teacher Who Teaches Children To Read!
To the naysayers and detractors of Mike Thaler's books, cut it out. When dealing with reluctant readers Mike Thaler's The Teacher From the Black Lagoon series gets youngsters to read. Other great authors for reluctant readers are John Scieszka and Dav Pilkey. These books are geared towards little boys that dislike reading. Give a reluctant reader a book with potty humor, heads cut off and general silliness and you'll get that child to read. So it's not Frog and Toad or Nate the Great. Get over it.

5-0 out of 5 stars HILARIOUS!!!!!!
I'm surprised by the other more recent reviews on this one... I read it to my class, and they LOVED IT!I can't wait to get the entire set, so that they can read more about the lovely imaginations of the "Black Lagoon" series.Great illustrations, vocabulary, and descriptive imagery!!! Definitely a keeper!

1-0 out of 5 stars Revolting
Parents beware! This message of fear of the unknown can be given in infinitely better ways.The writing style is for a very young child.However, before you find out the main character is having a dream, children in his class have been beheaded, half eaten, turned to ashes, entirely eaten and "is digesting", or had a head shrunk to the size of a pin (picture given of small head on girl's body).At naptime the teacher says "Everyone who still has one, put your head on your desk."
I do not find this flight of fantasy amusing.Where, one might wonder, did this boy become exposed to such violent images? This book is more likely to create new fears for your children, than to calm their fears.
I also reacted a little to the teacher ending up as a blond with, if not blue eyes (they are just black dots), then blue eye shadow.
Violence and stereotyping.Worst children's book I have read in a long time. ... Read more
