WE SHIP DAILY!!EXPEDITED SHIPPING AVAILABLE. There's always a Martin. One Martin. Martin Boyle already has plenty to worry about. His germaphobic mother keeps him home from school if she hears so much as a sneeze, and his father is always off somewhere reenacting old war battles. Julia, the most beautiful girl in school, won't even speak to Martin, and the gym teacher is officially out to get him. Which is why Martin really doesn't need this curse hanging over his head. On a trip to the family cemetery, Martin wanders among the tombstones of his ancestors and discovers a disturbing pattern: when one Martin is born, the previous Martin dies. And---just his luck---Martin's aunt is about to give birth to a baby boy, who will, according to tradition, be named Martin. Martin must find a way to break the curse, but every clue seems to lead to a dead end. And time is running out.Editorial ReviewsReviewGr 5-7--Martin Boyle was 'born dead,' his lifeless body placed on his mother. Suddenly the baby moves. From that moment on, his mother does everything in her power to protect him from anything that could possibly harm him. In fact, she crosses over into paranoia and obsessive behavior. Martin's friend Charley is used to him getting on the bus each day with his portable air bag strapped to his chest and his mother running to school to check on his safety. During an annual trip to visit the old family cemetery, the boy realizes a strange correlation among the Martins in the family. It is tradition that the first boy be named Martin, but each time a new Martin is born, the old one must die. His Aunt Jenny is pregnant with a boy, due shortly. Martin knows that his days are numbered so his actions become reckless, which lands him in detention and gives him a chance to get to know his crush, Julia. He has been writing a story about a white knight, a black knight, and a princess, which Julia loves. The story symbolizes an escape that both Julia, a foster child, and Martin crave. The crisis of Martin's impending death is the joining factor in this odd hodgepodge of characters, including Poole, a spirited but unkempt homeless boy. They form a bond in trying to keep Martin alive. This is a sobering read in many respects as many of the adults are directly responsible for the emotional baggage these children carry. Julia fights against it, Poole runs away, Martin's sister cowers, but Martin triumphs. Minor characters such as the physical education teacher who employs completely illegal means of punishment will further fuel readers' angst. This is a great choice for discussions.--Julie Shatterly, W.A.

Summary: "The classic tale of the old couple, with no children of their own, who bake a gingerbread boy to keep them company. Just as the little old woman is about to take him from the oven, he slips away and runs out the door past a cow, a horse, a group of threshers, mowers, etc. All follow in hot pursuit until the gingerbread boy meets up with a wily fox, and #145;at last and at last he went the way of every single gingerbread boy that ever came out of an oven . . . He was all gone!' A wonderfully frenetic cross-country chase is depicted in Galdone's broadly humorous color wash drawings. Of the eight editions of this well-known story now in print, this hilarious version is the most delectable." --School Library Journal, starred "Galdone has already proven many times over that he is perfectly at home with those traditional nursery tales that are still preschoolers' favorites, and his expressive, unassuming style just right for their very young audience. . . . Children will follow along breathlessly . . . right up to that last snip snap snip when the Gingerbread Boy goes #145;the way of every single gingerbread boy that ever came out of an oven.'"--Kirkus Reviews.

I m Arthur and I m seven, and the other day, round the back of my grandparents house, I found an egg. It was a completely white egg, just like the ones you get in the fridge. I was so happy, because it isn t every day you find an egg. But when I ran back to the house to show it to my family, they made the biggest fuss ever. My grandfather, my grandmother, my parents and even the people from the television were trying to make sense of it. We finally had the chance to get to the bottom of the greatest mystery of all time. Which came first, the chicken or the egg?Arthur is a seven-year-old boy who is brilliant at being a seven-year-old-boy. When Arthur visits his grandparents house by the lake, more often than not, he becomes entangled in a new adventure, which he must solve with the help of his pet duck and useless dog - and hopefully without too much help from eccentric Cousin Eugene.

Item Description: Phoenix Yard Books, United Kingdom, 2013. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Caroline Magerl (illustrator). 194 x 130 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. The first book in the Kingdom of Silk series. Griffin has a secret in his heart that nobody else knows - until he meets Layla.Griffin Silk is from an uncommon sort of family, parents Ben and Annie Silk have a brood of five daughters ( the Rainbow Girls ), a son named Griffin, Griffin s best friend Layla who might as well be a Silk , Nell - the tiny bit magic fairy grandmother. When he meets Layla, a princess with a daisy chain crown, he knows he s found a friend. So Griffin shares his inner thoughts with her and together they find a way to deal with his secret. Just like the mythical beast whose name he bears, Griffin discovers he has the courage of a lion. But it will take a friend like Layla to help him find the answers. This unique and tender novel is the first book in Glenda Millard s multi-award-winning Kingdom of Silk series, and will touch the heart of every reader. Through these whimsical, lyrical stories, Glenda Millard writes about families like no other writer writes about families. The books explore important themes of love, loss, friendships, home and belonging, in ways that pull at the heartstrings but are never over-sentimental. Honey for the soul. REVIEWS: Poignant and lovely. Millard has that rare gift of making you feel in a few pages that you ve known these characters, and this place, always. -- INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY (BEST CHILDREN S BOOKS). This is a special, lyrical and lovely story. It gives you a vibrant sense of the countryside, and even more, it takes you inside the mind of an ordinary but most extraordinary boy, Griffin Silk. It will surely touch your heart. -- BERLIE DOHERTY, DOUBLE CARNEGIE MEDAL WINNER. Soft, dreamy and slightly Bohemian. Sad yet hopeful, it s hard not to shed a tear at the end. Would read aloud well, engaging discussion. A real surprise. (A book of the week.) -- PETERS EDUCATIONAL BOOKS. The Naming of Tishkin Silk is a truly beautiful story of loss, hope, strength and love. Her depictions of rural Australia are stunning; the reader can nearly feel the heat of the sun through the branches of the apple tree. A splendid and unforgettable read. -- LIBRARY MICE. A gorgeous read with some of the best scene setting I ve ever read and with a family I adore. Even better, it s the first in a series! -- BOOKA UHA S BOOK NOOK. Griffin came into the Silk family after Scarlet, Indigo, Violet, Amber and Saffron. He came early in the morning on that uncommon day, the twenty-ninth of February. His father s prediction, considering the date of Griffin s birth, was that he would be an uncommon sort of boy. With these words The Naming of Tishkin Silk by Glenda Millard starts weaving gentle magic around your unsuspecting heart. Griffin is a member of the somewhat unusual and perhaps slightly bohemian Silk family, who live on the outskirts of a small Australian town. Griffin carries a secret deep inside him, a huge worry that he finds hard to share until he meets Layla, instantly recognisable to him as a princess because she is wearing a daisy-chain crown. Thanks to the thoughtfulness shown by his new friend, Griffin s courage grows and together they do something that heals the sorrow which all the family has felt after a terrible event no-one has been able to talk about for months. Just like Griffin, this is a truly uncommon short novel, the first in a seven part series. From unexpected characters to profoundly moving themes threaded together with sometimes astonishingly lyrical writing, this book is something utterly different and incredibly beautiful. I have never before come across such delicate and yet powerful writing in a novel for children. Unique, breathtaking and full of fierce love and deep sorrow, The Naming of Tishkin Silk is the sort of book that changes you forever, the sort of book you are just so glad to have inside you, to enrich even the happiest of days and to sustain you on dark nights. The dual aspect of this novel - intense sadness and intense h. Bookseller Inventory # AA99781907912245

Item Description: Riverhead Hardcover, 2010. Book Condition: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: "Warner, New York Timescolumnist and author of the best-selling Perfect Madness: Motherhood in the Age of Anxiety, set out to write a follow-up volume exposing what she believed were capricious diagnoses and medication of children's mental and learning disorders. Instead, she fell down the rabbit hole to an alternative reality. Although she found the stereotype of pushy parents who shop for prescriptions or educational accommodations to fit their overscheduled children, Warner's heartbreaking conversations with pediatricians and the parents of children with mental issues such as attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder, autism, serious depression, or bipolar disorders led her to see beyond her prejudices. As Warner passionately writes, appropriate care for childhood mental illness, if possible, is not necessarily probable. The perceived stigma of mental illness, deep-rooted suspicions of the medical and educational establishments, and, above all, merciless economic factors deny a shocking number of children with learning or mental disabilities the care and medications they need to succeed in school and society. Parents, social workers, and educators will find Warner's compelling study troubling but enlightening. Highly recommended. -Library Journal "This is a groundbreaking, thoughtfully argued book. My experience with families in the consulting room supports Judith Warner's nuanced argument exactly. The myth perpetrated by a breathless news media is fals: In reality, parents don'twant to medicate their children. And every one of us has family members and friends (or ourselves!) who could have led richer, less anguished lives had they been given appropriate medication during childhood for learning or emotional problems." -Wendy Mogel, Ph.D., author of The Blessing of a Skinned Knee "This is an important book, a landmark book, a triumph of honesty over bigotry and of patient learning over the the rush to judgement. I see every day in my office the awful, preventable damage done by zealots and reductionistic 'thinking'. Judith Warner rejects the panicky sound-bites that have plagued the discussion of children's mental health for the complexity of truth. She brings to all who read her book the resoundingly good and hopeful news of how much we have learned over the past few decades, how trasforming the best help can be, and how all children can turn into responsible, joyful adults. We owe her a huge debt." -Edward Hallowell, M.D., co-author of Super Parenting for ADDand author of The Childhood Roots of Adult Happiness "Readers love Judith Warner because she is open, honest, attuned, and curious. In We've Got Issues, Warner considers children and psychotherapeutic medicine: whether drug companies hold too much sway, whether doctors over-prescribe, but also whether troubled boys and girls might sometimes need more help than they get today. The result is a caring and informed book that will earn the trust and loyalty of a wide audience." -Peter D. Kramer, author of Listening to Prozac. Bookseller Inventory # ABE_book_new_1594487545

With an introduction by Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Yusef Komunyakaa Named a finalist for the 2014 Lambda Literary Award in LGBT Nonfiction! Included in the 2014 Over the Rainbow list Selected by Publishers Weekly as a Pick of the Week (July 1st, 2013)! Selected by The Airship/Black Balloon Publishing as a Best Book of 2013 This collection is wide-ranging, moving from the Caribbean (Jamaica in particular) to Cambridge, England, and from poetry to sex to discrimination. -- Library Journal (BEA Editors Picks feature) A profound compassion for racial and sexual minorities, the oppressed, and the colonized, informs [Glave s] searing, beautifully evocative collection of essays.He captures the languor and seductiveness of Jamaica.A graceful and original stylist, Glave highlights the marginalized--calling on the descendants of people who toiled for the Empire as slaves and colonial subjects to never forget their past, and, in effect, to those who profit from that past to acknowledge their complicity. Ultimately, his work is critical, yet filled with generosity and compassion. -- Publishers Weekly (starred review) Thomas Glave surely is one of the bravest of contemporary authors.He is a fearless truth-teller whose essays in Among the Bloodpeople are fully, unhesitatingly engaged with his and our world. -- New York Journal of Books This is a collection that will leave you with chills; you will return to it not only for its sheer beauty, but also for its raw honesty, pain, and passion. -- Lambda Literary Report Glave writes beautifully.his.voice deserves our attention. --The Gay Lesbian Review A wonderful anthology, interspersing personal essays with more academic-leaning articles. --CCLaP Glave remarks on the state of an island as he sees it, and of a people whose legacies bear out in astonishing ways, employing prose that soothes while its subject matter sears genteel sensibilities. -- Caribbean Beat Glave crosses boundaries of genre and community, speaking with extraordinary candor and vulnerability variously as the American son of immigrants, as a Jamaican, as a professor, as a queer boy from the Bronx.What unifies these identities and these essays is the ferocity of Glave s voice, his sentences that can feel like living, untamed things. --Towleroad: A Site with Homosexual Tendencies I didn t know [homosexuals in Jamaica] were disemboweled with machetes. And I didn t consider one could be poetic about fear and anger and isolation. But the touchingly phrased sentences don t soften the impact of reading about murder and political corruption. Instead, it eats at you because it makes you attentive to every word, feel the pauses as Glave takes a breath and speaks with the pulse of his heartbeat. --Reeling and Writhing and Fainting in Coils With Among the Bloodpeople, [Glave] has given us a book as beautiful as it is necessary. -- Next Magazine After stunning readers with his story collections Whose Song? and The Torturer s Wife, the O. Henry- and multiple Lammy-winner now returns to nonfiction in Among the Bloodpeople: Politics and Flesh. --Band of Thebes Glave s texts examine themselves, change course, and raise questions about their own assertions. Glave s hatred of oppression is balanced by his love of writing. Thomas Glave has been admired for his unique style and exploration of taboo, politically volatile topics. The award-winning author s new collection, Among the Bloodpeople, contains all the power and daring of his earlier writing but ventures even further into the political, the personal, and the secret. Each essay in the volume reveals a passionate commitment to social justice and human truth. Whether confronting Jamaica s prime minister on antigay bigotry, contemplating the risks and seductions of outlawed sex, exploring a world of octopuses and men performing somersaults in the Caribbean Sea, or challenging repressive tactics employed at the University of Cambridge, Glave expresses the obse.

Item Description: Phoenix Yard Books, United Kingdom, 2013. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Caroline Magerl (illustrator). 194 x 130 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. The first book in the Kingdom of Silk series. Griffin has a secret in his heart that nobody else knows - until he meets Layla.Griffin Silk is from an uncommon sort of family, parents Ben and Annie Silk have a brood of five daughters ( the Rainbow Girls ), a son named Griffin, Griffin s best friend Layla who might as well be a Silk , Nell - the tiny bit magic fairy grandmother. When he meets Layla, a princess with a daisy chain crown, he knows he s found a friend. So Griffin shares his inner thoughts with her and together they find a way to deal with his secret. Just like the mythical beast whose name he bears, Griffin discovers he has the courage of a lion. But it will take a friend like Layla to help him find the answers. This unique and tender novel is the first book in Glenda Millard s multi-award-winning Kingdom of Silk series, and will touch the heart of every reader. Through these whimsical, lyrical stories, Glenda Millard writes about families like no other writer writes about families. The books explore important themes of love, loss, friendships, home and belonging, in ways that pull at the heartstrings but are never over-sentimental. Honey for the soul. REVIEWS: Poignant and lovely. Millard has that rare gift of making you feel in a few pages that you ve known these characters, and this place, always. -- INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY (BEST CHILDREN S BOOKS). This is a special, lyrical and lovely story. It gives you a vibrant sense of the countryside, and even more, it takes you inside the mind of an ordinary but most extraordinary boy, Griffin Silk. It will surely touch your heart. -- BERLIE DOHERTY, DOUBLE CARNEGIE MEDAL WINNER. Soft, dreamy and slightly Bohemian. Sad yet hopeful, it s hard not to shed a tear at the end. Would read aloud well, engaging discussion. A real surprise. (A book of the week.) -- PETERS EDUCATIONAL BOOKS. The Naming of Tishkin Silk is a truly beautiful story of loss, hope, strength and love. Her depictions of rural Australia are stunning; the reader can nearly feel the heat of the sun through the branches of the apple tree. A splendid and unforgettable read. -- LIBRARY MICE. A gorgeous read with some of the best scene setting I ve ever read and with a family I adore. Even better, it s the first in a series! -- BOOKA UHA S BOOK NOOK. Griffin came into the Silk family after Scarlet, Indigo, Violet, Amber and Saffron. He came early in the morning on that uncommon day, the twenty-ninth of February. His father s prediction, considering the date of Griffin s birth, was that he would be an uncommon sort of boy. With these words The Naming of Tishkin Silk by Glenda Millard starts weaving gentle magic around your unsuspecting heart. Griffin is a member of the somewhat unusual and perhaps slightly bohemian Silk family, who live on the outskirts of a small Australian town. Griffin carries a secret deep inside him, a huge worry that he finds hard to share until he meets Layla, instantly recognisable to him as a princess because she is wearing a daisy-chain crown. Thanks to the thoughtfulness shown by his new friend, Griffin s courage grows and together they do something that heals the sorrow which all the family has felt after a terrible event no-one has been able to talk about for months. Just like Griffin, this is a truly uncommon short novel, the first in a seven part series. From unexpected characters to profoundly moving themes threaded together with sometimes astonishingly lyrical writing, this book is something utterly different and incredibly beautiful. I have never before come across such delicate and yet powerful writing in a novel for children. Unique, breathtaking and full of fierce love and deep sorrow, The Naming of Tishkin Silk is the sort of book that changes you forever, the sort of book you are just so glad to have inside you, to enrich even the happiest of days and to sustain you on dark nights. The dual aspect of this novel - intense sadness and intense h. Bookseller Inventory # AA99781907912245

Summary: Praise for The Family: "The Family is as rich and poignant as any novel, only all true and impeccably researched."Erik Larson, New York Times bestselling author of In the Garden of the Beasts "A true triumph of historical storytelling. David Laskin is a magical searcher into the past.His generations of Cohens could be your Johansens, Smiths, Lopezes, Schmidts, O'Houlihans, even my Scottish peasant forebears. The Family will touch you, heart and soul."Ivan Doig, National Book Award finalist for This House of Sky "I read The Family without stopping, except sometimes to weep (and occasionally to chuckle). Through the stories of members of David Laskin's large, dispersing family, history sharpens into individual lives and deaths and losses and becomes personal and vivid and tragic."Edith Pearlman, National Book Critics Circle Award winner and National Book Award finalist for Binocular Vision "David Laskin's The Family is a vivid, utterly compelling exploration of the forces that have shaped modern history. We often view these forces capitalism, fascism, mass migration, assimilation, and the likeonly from a distance, as vast, impersonal abstractions. But in Laskin''s magnificent book we see them in the intimate details of actual lives, deftly followed through a tangle of triumph, accommodation, and often unbearable suffering. An extraordinary achievement."Stephen Greenblatt, New York Times bestselling author of The Swerve: How the World Became Modern "I was utterly entranced by David Laskin's The Family . Tracing three strands of his fascinating ancestry, Laskin takes us on an epic journey deep into the heart and soul of the twentieth century. The story is haunting, heartfelt, and deeply moving. And in the endas Laskin eloquently points out in a beautiful, almost mystical, epiloguehis telling of it weaves another bright silver thread into the fabric that binds all of us together."Daniel James Brown, author of The Boys in the Boat "'Fate and chance and character make and break every generation,'" David Laskin tells us in this personal, highly moving history of his family. At once heartbreaking and gloriously triumphant, it's finally a story of love. Yes, a big unyielding, often rollicking and humorous history of one generation's prevailing love for the next. A wonderful achievement. "Philip Schultz, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Failure "David Laskin''s The Family is an elegantly evocative meditation on the Jewish diaspora of the twentieth century. Deeply emotional at times, The Family is both harrowing and uplifting. Highly recommended!"Douglas Brinkley, author of Cronkite . "What a story! Scholars and scribes, Zionists and revolutionaries, Holocaust martyrs and the inventors of the Maidenform bra all march through these pages. The Family is the twentieth-century history of the Jews writ small."Jonathan D. Sarna, Joseph H. and Belle R. Braun Professor of American Jewish History at Brandeis University "A banquet of Jewish history, as lived by one exceptional American family, across four generations and on three continents, the worst things endured and the best things relished."Edward Ball, author of Slaves in the Family "Beautifully written, densely textured and at times heartbreaking." The Seattle Times "An ambitious, experimental look at exodus, acclimatization and culture with a cast as diverse as any family photo album.Were this fiction, it would read much like the novels of Leon Uris and other spinners of historical sagas." Kirkus "A gripping epic narrative, beginning in 1875 and spanning over a century." Publishers Weekly "[Laskin's] compelling narrative brings these individuals to life as awe witness their triumphs and tragedies in vivid detail and at times in their own voices." Library Journal "A deeply felt story filled with the joy and sadness that has characterized Jewish life in this period." Booklist "A powerful rendition of the tragic and tri.

Item Description: Simon & Schuster/Paula Wiseman Books, 2014. Book Condition: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: Using watercolor and colored pencils, Colon has created a wordless book (based on his childhood) that speaks volumes. A boy, home for the day perhaps because of an illness, sits on his bed reading a book about Africa. He begins to draw. Five identical, intensely colored pictures of the boy with an easel, art supplies, and a pit helmet increase in size as readers begin this richly imagined day on a safari. He draws an elephant as an egret watches, and atop the elephant's back, the boy and bird find a herd of zebras. They pose for him as he sits on a stump. Giraffes thunder by, raising clouds of golden dust. The boy draws them, his body aslant as his eyes follow them. He draws a gorilla, who holds his helmet and shares his sandwich. He draws lions, a water buffalo, and a hippo before sighting a charging rhinoceros. Running with all his might, he barely escapes the rhino. Baboons retrieve his pencils, set up his easel, and draw him. They also eat his sandwiches as the day slides into evening. A spread poignantly captures the parting of boy and elephant. Eyes closed, he lays his head against his friend's side while the elephant's trunk gently caresses the boy's cheek. As six identical paintings decrease in size, the book returns to the boy's pale room, now strewn with drawings. The final scene shows the boy at school, holding the elephant's picture front and center. The pleasure the boy takes in making and sharing his art is palpable. Young artists will love this book, as will all children who know the joy of exploring their own imaginations. A must-have for every library. Bookseller Inventory # ABE_book_new_1442494921

Item Description: BAEN, United States, 2016. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 170 x 104 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. From two-time Shamus Award winner Brendan DuBois comes a terrifying and original tale of a world populated mostly by teens, who are fighting to save their lives . . . and the future of planet Earth. A decade ago, the alien Creepers came to Earth, dropping asteroids to drown our coastal cities, detonating nuclear weapons overhead to destroy our communications, power, and computer systems, and to set up their network of killer stealth satellites to kill anything on our planet that used modern technology. In a matter of days, Earth was driven back to a nineteenth century existence.  Then the war really began, as the Creepers descended and set up domed bases that were impervious to everything save a nuclear bomb. For ten years then, the battered and surviving members of humanity have fought against the Creepers and their mechanized exoskeletons, until something unexpected happened: a chance for victory. Sixteen-year-old Randy Knox has the usual problems of a teenage boy: getting along with his father, dating his sweetheart, and trying not to fail his junior year of high school. But Randy also has other demands on his time, as a sergeant in the N.H. National Guard, attached to the U.S. Army, and fighting the invading Creepers. Randy has dim memories of a time of electric lights, laptop computers, television screens, and, above all, plenty of food at every meal. On his twelfth birthday, he enlisted in the Army to carry on the fight, since most of the world’s adults have been killed off and it’s up to the younger generations to serve. But now, as a veteran of the Creeper war and with his K-9 partner Thor, Randy has learned to focus on the essentials: the best way to kill a Creeper, scrounge through abandoned buildings for old canned goods, and to avoid being turned into "barbecue bait." He has earned the Bronze Star, two Purple Hearts, and the Combat Infantryman Badge. Endless war is all he knows. Now change has drastically come to his life. The current President of the United States has announced that scattered remnants of the Air Force have destroyed the Creeper’s Orbital Base, ensuring victory over the alien invaders. Those surviving Creepers on the Earth’s surface will be hunted down and exterminated, as a weary and wary population celebrates victory. Yet Randy is assigned a new mission: to escort a secret representative from the Governor of New Hampshire to the nation’s capital to meet with the President. And at the last moment, a fellow teen soldier—the beautiful Serena Coulson and her mute younger brother Buddy—are assigned to join Randy. This secretive mission proves to be the most dangerous assignment of his life, as Randy tries to protect his charges from rampaging Creepers and criminal humans. And as he fights to reach the capitol with a vital mission, Randy learns that all of his skills in combating aliens may not be enough to survive the dark conspiracies of his fellow humans.   About Dark Victory:  quot;DuBois (Resurrection Day) has written a great series opener for a range of readers. The adolescent characters make this an especially solid choice for teens with an interest in apocalyptic and disaster fiction.quot;—Library Journal quot;Ambitious . . . nail-biting suspense and satisfyingly complex characterization . . . the contrast between DuBois’s world and our own is stark and well drawn.quot;—Publishers Weekly quot;A page-turner of an alien invasion novel with fine world-building and characterization. DuBois writes with a strong hand, keeping the fighting and military side of things gritty. From the weapons to the people, Dubois gets it right.quot;—Steve Miller, cocreator of the best-selling Liaden Universe® series About Brendan Dubois: quot;Dubois gives the reader both exquisite suspense and deeply realized characters.quot;—Booklist quot;Brendan DuBois is a fine novelist and easily the best short-story writer of his generation.quot;—Lee Child.

Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text.

Excerpt: .of all, while the more costly works, with elaborate colored plates, should be in every public library. Where it is possible, visits should be made to a museum and a happy hour passed in the study of the collection. Where there is no museum near at hand, parents, teachers, school authorities, library trustees and all interested in the development of children should unite in the work of forming one, the beginnings of which may be placed in the school-room or in the library. In a lesson like the present it is impossible to mention even by name the many family groups of an order whose representatives are legion. Their larvae, or caterpillars, are everywhere and feed upon every growing thing. Every plant has one or more enemies among the countless host. Some feed upon the leaves, some live within the fruit, a few bore into the solid wood, many live in the stalks of grasses, and one even feeds under water in the stems of water-lilies; and each kind of caterpillar changes at length into its own particular species of moth or butterfly. So a lifetime is not long enough in which to learn about them all, but there are certain groups that are so distinct or so common that they can be easily recognized, even by the children, with a little assistance, and these may form the beginnings of a collection. For example, the Promethea moth is the most common of the Giant Silk-worm family, or Saturniidae. Its cocoons are often found in winter, rolled up in a leaf and hanging to the slender branches of small wild cherry-trees. I know many boys and girls, and not a few men and women who were boys and girls once, who will often go clambering and frolicking through deep snow to some bush or tree of the wild cherry or ash, just to see. When found, these. Bookseller Inventory # APC9781236902559

It s been two months now since Travis s family moved from their shabby old house to a development so new that it seems totally unreal. There s one place, though, where Travis can connect with his old life: the Salinas library. He and his parents used to go there together every Saturday, but now he bikes to it alone, re-reading his favorite old books. It s only natural that Travis likes the work of John Steinbeck after all, Salinas is Steinbeck s hometown. But that can t explain why Travis is suddenly seeing Steinbeck s characters spring to life. There s the homeless man in the alley behind the library, the boy who writes by night in an attic bedroom. Travis has met them all before as a reader. But why are they here, and how? As Travis struggles to solve this mystery, budget cuts threaten his library. In looking for a way to save his safe haven, he begins to sort out fact from fiction and stumbles into a story Steinbeck might have started, and Travis needs to complete. Here is a mystery that delves deeply into the ways that books take us, one at a time, out into the vast world. Bookseller Inventory # BRI9781501285929

Item Description: Amulet Paperbacks, 2012. Book Condition: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: In 1841 a Japanese fishing vessel sinks. Its crew is forced to swim to a small, unknown island, where they are rescued by a passing American ship. Japan's borders remain closed to all Western nations, so the crew sets off to America, learning English on the way. Manjiro, a 14-year-old boy, is curious and eager to learn everything he can about this new culture. Eventually the captain adopts Manjiro and takes him to his home in New England. The boy lives there for some time and then heads to San Francisco to pan for gold. After many years, he makes it back to Japan, only to be imprisoned as an outsider. With his hard-won knowledge of the West, Manjiro is in a unique position to persuade the emperor to ease open the boundaries around Japan; he may even achieve his unlikely dream of becoming a samurai. Heart of a Samurai is a 2011 Newbery Honor Book. Accolades and Praise for Heart of a Samurai 2011 Newbery Honor Book New York Times Bestseller NPR Backseat Book Club pick "A terrifc biographical novel by Margi Preus." - Wall Street Journal *STARRED REVIEW* "It's a classic fish-out-of-water story (although this fish goes into the water repeatedly), and it's precisely this classic structure that gives the novel the sturdy bones of a timeless tale. Backeted by gritty seafaring episodes--salty and bloody enough to assure us that Preus has done her research--the book's heart is its middle section, in which Manjiro, allegedly the first Japanese to set foot in America, deals with the prejudice and promise of a new world. By Japanese tradition, Manjiro was destined to be no more than a humble fisherman, but when his 10-year saga ends, he has become so much more." -- Booklist, starred review *STARRED REVIEW* "Illustrated with Manjiro's own pencil drawings in addition to other archival material and original art from Tamaki, this is a captivating fictionalized (although notably faithful) retelling of the boy's adventures. Capturing his wonder, remarkable willingness to learn, the prejudice he encountered and the way he eventually influenced officials in Japan to open the country, this highly entertaining page-turner." --Kirkus Reviews , starred review *STARRED REVIEW* "Stunning debut novel. Preus places readers in the young man's shoes, whether he is on a ship or in a Japanese prison. Her deftness in writing is evident in two poignant scenes, one in which Manjiro realizes the similarities between the Japanese and the Americans and the other when he reunites with his Japanese family." -- School Library Journal, starred review *STARRED REVIEW* "Preus mixes fact with fiction in a tale that is at once adventurous, heartwarming, sprawling, and nerve-racking in its depictions of early anti-Asian sentiment. She succeeds in making readers feel every bit as "other" as Manjiro, while showing America at its best and worst through his eyes." -- Publishers Weekly, starred review "First-time novelist Preus turns the true story of Manjiro into an action-packed boy's adventure tale." -- Horn Book.
