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

Item Description: Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 2006. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. 0374168091 From the Publisher On a wild, windy April day in Manhattan, when Mary first meets John Keane, she cannot know what lies ahead of her. A marriage, a fleeting season of romance, and the birth of four children will bring John and Mary to rest in the safe embrace of a traditional Catholic life in the suburbs. But neither Mary nor John, distracted by memories and longings, can feel the wind that is buffeting their children, leading them in directions beyond their parents' control. Michael and his sister Annie are caught up in the sexual revolution. Jacob, brooding and frail, is drafted to Vietnam. And the youngest, Clare, commits a stunning transgression after a childhood spent pleasing her parents. As John and Mary struggle to hold on to their family and their faith, Alice McDermott weaves an elegant, unforgettable portrait of a world in flux?and of the secrets and sorrows, anger and love, that lie at the heart of every family. The Washington Post - Jane Hamilton McDermott is at the height of her powers here, charging her seemingly ordinary scenes with the possibility of danger, of terror or mystery and, on occasion, radiance. She does so with the lightest touch, with the silkiest humor, and yet at the same time she probes deeply into the moment. And so there is suspense when a professor plies an earnest student with whisky, when the Keane children play with toy soldiers on a windy dune, when a group of college boys argue about Halloween decorations in a bar, when a spinster rides a bus at night. The New York Times - Michiko Kakutani There is no sentimentality to Ms. McDermott's portrait of the Keane family, no romanticizing of their story. Instead, she uses her lyrical, pointillist prose to conjure the homely details of their middle-class life on Long Island: the ordinary pleasures of a family trip to the beach, the aggravations of tending to four squabbling children, the claustrophobia of marital discord where a simple silence can become "a remarkable concoction" of "hurt, impatience, recrimination, blood-red anger, fear, worry" . her easy authority with this material, combined with her clear-eyed sympathy for her characters, results in a moving, old-fashioned story about longing and loss and sorrow. Publishers Weekly A master at capturing Irish-Catholic American suburban life, particularly in That Night (1987) and the National Book Award-winning Charming Billy (1998), McDermott returns for this sixth novel with the Keane family of Long Island, who get swept up in the wake of the Vietnam War. When John and Mary Keane marry shortly after WWII, she's on the verge of spinsterhood, and he's a vet haunted by the death of a young private in his platoon. Jacob, their first-born, is given the dead soldier's name, an omen that will haunt the family when Jacob is killed in Vietnam (hauntingly underplayed by McDermott). In vignette-like chapters, some of which are stunning set pieces, McDermott probes the remaining family's inner lives. Catholic faith and Irish heritage anchor John and Mary's feelings, but their children experience their generation's doubt, rebellion and loss of innocence: next eldest Michael, who had always dominated Jacob, drowns his guilt and regret in sex and drugs; Anne quits college and moves to London with a lover; Clare, a high school senior, gets pregnant. The story of '60s and '70s suburbia has been told before, and McDermott has little to say about the Vietnam War itself. But she flawlessly encapsulates an era in the private moments of one family's life. (Sept.) Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information. Library Journal In her sixth novel, National Book Award winner McDermott (Charming Billy) continues her examination of the modern Irish American Catholic experience. Through a series of linked vignettes, this quiet story highlights events in the Keane family of Long Island over several decades. John and Mary Keane's somewhat surprising engagement in the late 1940s (both are a little past the usual marr. Bookseller Inventory # 55614

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.

Item Description: SIMON SCHUSTER, United States, 2013. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 170 x 104 mm. Language: English Brand New Book. After travel writer Lea Sutter barely survives a merciless hurricane on a tiny island off the South Carolina coast, she impulsively brings two orphaned twin boys home with her to Long Island. Samuel and Daniel seem amiable and intensely grateful at first, but no one in Lea s family anticipates the twins true evil nature--or predicts that within a few weeks time her husband, a controversial child psychologist, will be implicated in two brutal murders. The horror is grisly (Associated Press) in legendary author R.L. Stine s creepy, fun read ( Library Journal )--an homage to the millions of adult fans who grew up reading his classic series and a must-read for every fan of deviously inventive chillers.

Not illustrated. 1904 edition. 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.

Item Description: Washington Square Press, 2008. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 1416540148 From the Publisher What if your ex was famous and adored by millions? What would you do if you had one chance to make him regret his entire existence? How much would you risk? Kate Hollis's ex-boyfriend's face plasters newsstands and TV, the Internet, and the multiplex. Jake Sharpe is one of the biggest recording stars on the planet, and every song he's famous for is about Kate. For over a decade his soundtrack has chased her - from the gym to the supermarket, from the dentist's office to the bars. Now thirty-year-old Kate gets the call that Jake has finally landed back in their Vermont hometown for an MTV special. The moment she has been waiting for has arrived. On the eve of their prom, Jake Sharpe vanished, resurfacing when his song "Losing" - about his and Kate's first sexual experience - shot to the top of the Billboard charts. And the hits kept coming, each more personal than the one before. Now Kate gets her chance to confront Jake and reclaim her past. But after eleven years of enduring protracted and far-from-private heartbreak, everyone in Kate's life has a stake in how this plays out. Kate must risk betraying the friends Jake abandoned, the bandmates whose songs he plundered, and her own parents, who fear this will dredge up a shared past more painful than any of them want to acknowledge. But after getting the call in the dead of night and jumping on a plane, can she turn back now? Newsweek dubbed The Nanny Diaries "a national phenomenon" and the New Republic proclaimed, "Thank God for Citizen Girl." Now McLaughlin and Kraus have written a poignant, humorous tale about modern celebrity obsession and coming of age during thedivorce boom. With flawless depictions of the 1980s, a charismatic heroine, and their signature biting wit, the authors offer up another lively and hilarious tale of a smart young woman looking for satisfaction in the chaos of contemporary culture. Publishers Weekly The team behind The Nanny Diariesand Citizen Girlreturns with another breezy chick lit portrayal of a woman wronged and, eventually, empowered. When Kate Hollis's childhood chum Laura calls from their Vermont hometown and announces the arrival of Jake Sharpe, a mega rock star and Kate's high school sweetheart, Kate jumps on a plane from Charleston, S.C. (where she's a sustainable development consultant) and makes for idyllic Croton Falls. Through it's been 13 years, Kate still has a primal need to confront not only the boy who abandoned her before the senior prom, but the musical pirate who used her personal life as fodder for his most celebrated songs and cheated his high school bandmates out of deserved recognition and royalties. Chapters switch back and forth between the present and the pivotal middle and high school years where Kate (then Katie) and Jake did the first-love thing: readers get to see Jake's growing he's-just-not-that-into-you-ness and how (surprise!) their Zima-fueled love (it was the '90s) was idealized. While one spends much of the book wanting to shout at Kate to give it up, go back to Charleston and get on with it, McLaughlin and Kraus do get the nagging need for closure in even the shallowest relationships comically right. (June)Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information Andrea Y. Griffith - Library Journal The film version of McLaughlin and Kraus's first novel, The Nanny Diaries, opens April 20; now comes their well-timed third novel. So far, the duo has exposed the underground world of New York nannies and satirized corporate America. What's left? How about a statement on celebrity culture and obsession? Enter 30-year-old Kate Hollis, a successful career woman who can't seem to shake her high school boyfriend. Why? The ex-boyfriend is Jake Sharpe, America's hottest musician, and his every no. 1 hit is a commentary on Kate and their relationship. When Jake shows up in their hometown after having abruptly left 13 years ago, right before the senior prom, Kate, too, comes home, finally confronting her ex. Bookseller Inventory # 55602

Tom and the Andirons It was perfectly natural in one respect, anyhow. There was really no reason in the world why Tom should not lie upon the great bear-skin rug in front of the library fire those cold winter nights if he wanted to, nor need anyone be surprised that he should want to. It was indeed a most delightful place to lie in. The bear-skin was soft and in every way comfortable and comforting. The fireplace itself was one of those huge hospitable affairs that might pass in some apartment houses in our narrow cooped-up city streets for a butler s pantry or small reception room-in fact in the summer time Tom used to sit in the fireplace and pretend he was in his office transacting business with such of his sister s dolls as could be induced to visit him there; giving orders to imaginary clerks and bookkeepers and keeping an equally fanciful office boy continually on the run. And then apart from the rug and the fireplace it was a beautiful room in which they were. Bookseller Inventory # APC9781492238010

Summary: "Richly layered and textured, this glowing work transports the reader into the world of the centuries-old tales. With lush patterns, Ludmila Zeman retells Sindbad's epic voyage in an animated contemporary fashion." From the jury for the Governor General' s Literary Awards "Zeman's richly colored illustrations, details, coherent, and carefully composedcreate an enticing introduction to a collection of tales that inspired writers from Hans Christian Andersen to Robert Louis Stevenson." School Library Journal "this buoyantly told tale [is] lavishly illustrated with intricately detailed paintings." School Library Journal "Dark, richly detailed pencil, colored-pencil, and watercolor illustrations add a Persian flair. [O]n the whole, Sinbad's adventures will find favor." The Horn Book Guide "sumptuously illustratedits pages are as intricate and elaborate as ancient tapestries or flying carpets" The Globe and Mail "Zemanpreserve[s] much of the exoticism and excitement of the original [Sindbad stories]. Glowing pencil and watercolor illustrations are done in the style of ancient Persian miniatures." The Washington Post "Ludmila Zeman has created another beautiful volume. The award-winning illustrator has once again used luminous colour and rich texture to create highly detailed paintings [T]he unusual cinematic vantage points and the stunning detailschallenge the viewer to take a closer look at their work. It is apparent that The Thousand and One Nights is one of Zeman's favorite books as she has so beautifully created the fabulous world of Sindbad and his very lively and vivacious elephant friends. Very highly recommended." CM Magazine "a brilliantly illustrated picture book" Children's Bookwatch "detailed illustrations will captivate even reluctant readers perfect for boys" Canadian Living "manages to preserve much of the exoticism and excitement of the originals." Book World "Every page is a luxurious weaving of intense colour and delicate detail. An aura of mystery and exoticism suffuses the art, partly because of the extraordinary magical subjects, and partly because of the deep, rich hues that cause each page to glow." The Toronto Star "The plot is packed, and the pace is quick. The pencil and watercolor illustrations and text boxes are framed in ornately detailed borders, and each compositionfeatures magical scenery. Zeman's combination of breathless storytelling and color-drenched images successfully establishes this picture book as a wonder tale" Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books "This striking combination of dramatic storytelling and compelling illustration make a fine introduction to the Arabian Nights Entertainments for young children." The Peace Arch News "Looking at Zeman's framed pencil and watercolour illustrations is like viewing paintings in a museum. The decorative borders surrounding the illustrations and the elaborate Islamic-themed designs gracing the endpapers make this book a work of art." Montreal Review of Books "The exotic story and pictures immediately entranced, and led us to further explore other of the famous Arabian tales." The Guelph Mercury "Sinbad's Secret is a superbly told and richly illustrated story of adventure and hardship, greed and kindness, loneliness and love. The beauty in this book lies in its illustrations." The Hamilton Spectator "Whispering mysteries, songs of the ages, the wonders of wandering -they're all in Ludmila Zeman's illustrated versions of Sindbad , Sindbad's Secret and Sindbad in the Land of Giants These sumptuously illustrated books, their pages glowing with crimson, turquoise, amber and gold, present a fantastical world of monsters, frantic escapes and feats of daring -all of which our hero Sindbad endures with glorious success."The classic The Tales of the Thousand and One Nights is a potent source for today's epic fantasy." -The Toronto Star.
