Item Description: Workman Publishing Company, 2009. Book Condition: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: Instill a lifelong love of reading in children. Created by Judy Pelikan, Books Make Me Happy is the perfect gift for a beginning reader, an interactive journal that encourages reading. It begins where classroom reading logs end--title, author, illustrator--and offers prompts that knit the bond between story and reader more deeply, such as "My favorite part of the book was." and "I will recommend this book to a friend because." There are fill-ins where kids can list their favorite books, draw scenes from a story, and write about the pleasures they get from reading. Throughout are full-color embroidered illustrations based on real children's drawings about their love of books. Also included are five pages of stickered bookplates that kids can customize and use to personalize their own books. For children, Books Make Me Happy is an invaluable tool to inspire first-time readers to become lifelong readers. For parents, it's both a keepsake and a rare window into the mind of their child at a particularly interesting time. Bookseller Inventory # ABE_book_new_076115597X

Item Description: HarperCollins, 1994. Book Condition: Used. This Book is in Good Condition. Clean Copy With Light Amount of Wear. 100% Guaranteed. Summary: Julie's decision to return home to her people is not an easy one. But after many months in the wilderness, living in harmony with the wolves that saved her life, she knows the time has come. Julie is not prepared, however, for all the changes that she finds. Her father has forsaken many of the old Eskimo traditions. He has given up his sled dogs for a snowmobile, and now looks after the musk oxen that serve as the village's income. He will do anything to protect them -- even shoot any wolves that might threaten the herd. Julie knows that, like her father, she must find a way to reconcile the old ways with the new. But how can she do that without putting her beloved wolves in danger?"This sequel to 1973 Newbery Medal-winning Julie of the Wolves continues the story of Julie Edwards Miyax Kapugen. Miyax is now living in Kangik village with her father, Kapugen. The one shadow that looms over Miyax is her knowledge that Kapugen will shoot more of her beloved wolves if they threaten the herd that he is raising as part of the village's industry. Their fate depends on whether or not Miyax can prove to her father what he once knew but seems to have forgotten: that Eskimos and animals must coexist as friends."-K.

Item Description: Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 2008. Book Condition: Used. This Book is in Good Condition. Clean Copy With Light Amount of Wear. 100% Guaranteed. Summary: "[Garis] deftly works through the evidence, constructing moving and memorable portraits of her family members . . . There is no happy ending to this strange tale, which weaves its spell in the telling." William Grimes,The New York Times "Anybody who read Uncle Wiggily and The Bobbsey Twins thinking, 'Why isn't my family like that?' will count their ancestral blessings when they pick up this riveting tale, which unmasks the agonized reality behind the idyll. The prose is lucid, unornamented, but full of feeling. To enter this book is to assume the watchful air of a child who feels that it is up to her to hold together a family that is spinning apart with terrific centripetal force." Mary Karr, author of The Liars' Club and Cherry "House of Happy Endings conveys an exquisite restraint, a measured thoughtfulness that is simply eloquent. At the same time it renders the terrible pain of its people in the most urgent way. A sense of the helplessness of love in the face of an ongoing personal disintegration, the panic of articulate educated people enduring a progressive disaster, give the story a fearsome suspense that is absolutely riveting. Its balance of judicious, insightful reflection and the evocation of heartbreak is truly rare; it's what distinguishes the best memoirs from the rest. Some exist beyond their subject as works of literature and I truly believe that this is one." Robert Stone "Leslie Garis' grandfather wrote Uncle Wiggily, her grandmother The Bobbsey Twinsbetween them Tom Swift and hundreds of other children's stories. These benign characters of America's childhood float over the Garis family like a Macy's Thanksgiving day Parade in hell, exacting a fearful penalty on three generations. Leslie Garis has written a searing and chillingly objective memoir, House of Happy Endings, that so transcends the 'problem family' genre it becomes a dissection of the American family itself, its values, its mores, its dreams." John Guare, author of The House of Blue Leaves and Six Degrees of Separation. Bookseller Inventory # ABE_book_usedgood_0374531587

Summary: "To read Chris Adrian is to take part in the exciting process of watching a talented and original writer gain mastery of his powerful gifts." Myla Goldberg,The New York Times Book Review"Adrian, himself a pediatrician and seminary student, is a lucid, brilliant fortune-teller. He unveils our demons, who, in the wake of their visitations upon these children, reveal something you can only call the face of God."Tom Chiarella,Esquire"Spirits and demons and a persistent faith populate Chris Adrian's crystalline stories in A BETTER ANGEL (Farrar, Straus and Giroux).In Adrian's lyrical kingdom.most attempts at intimacy, friendship, and love become something more dark, complex and spiritually wrenching."Vince Passaro,O, The Oprah Magazine"Abrasive, accusatory, despairing and, more than often enough, quite unforgettable fiction."Kirkus Reviews"He has a strong following among the literary magazine set, and with his latest book he has a chance to win a mainstream audience. 'A Better Angel' stands to outperform its predecessors, as many of its stories have appeared in places like the New Yorker and the Paris Review, and at a little over 200 pages, it's eminently accessible."- Lauren Mechling,Wall Street Journal"Edgy and otherworldly, this is a book of dark dreams."Arizona Republic"These stories are funny and bizarre without giving over to cutesiness or kitsch . . . The darkness in Adrian's writing is balanced with compassion, wit, and the haunting, eerie scenarios he constructs are only eclipsed by the charactersthe children, spirits, and Civil War reenactorswith which he fills them."Portland Mercury"Adrian explores his subjects with caution, respect, and most of all, imagination . . . His prose is heady enough to support Big Statementshe has the rare ability to talk about souls and be sincere . . . There are stories so thoroughly imagines and expertly written that alone they warrant the price of the entire collection."The Rake"[A] soul stirring collection."Seattle Times"The title story, which combines dark comedy and deep pathos, is not only the standout of this volume but also one of the best stories published in recent memory. Adrian has been known as a writer's writer, but with this book, readers would do well to stake their claim."Radhika Jones, Time"[A Better Angel].is held forward in the pared beauty of Adrian's unshowy, lambent prose and gives the collection almost a bottomless depth."San FranciscoChronicle"Mr. Adrian is a gifted, courageous writer as demonstrated in his well-received novels, "Gob's Grief" and "The Children's Hospital" and with this collection he continues to take far-reaching risks. Unspeakable grief and the innate will to survive create opposing forces in these stories, producing a universe bursting with humor and life."S. Kirk Walsh,The New York Times.

Summary: In the autumn of 1636, tulip fever is sweeping Amsterdam, and Europe's fortunes rise and fall with the promise of the New World. That year, the great Dutch family of Windjammer suffers the loss of their entire trading fleet and they face certain ruin. The only person who can save the family's home, fortune, and reputation is Adam, the family's young heir. But he faces many enemies encouraged by the despicable banker Hugo van Helsen, and stirred up by the wicked preacher Abner Heems. Only one hope remains:a dark secret, a rare treasure called the Black Pearl. It is not the precious jewel that Adam imagines, but a flower:a tulip:one of the rarest and most valuable. In fact, it is worth enough money at the height of tulip fever to save the House of Windjammer. Adam is determined to find this hidden treasure, but he is not the only one on a mission to find the Black Pearl. Bookseller Inventory # ABE_book_usedgood_1582348111

Item Description: Random House Trade Paperbacks, 2005. Book Condition: Used. This Book is in Good Condition. Clean Copy With Light Amount of Wear. 100% Guaranteed. Summary: George Plimpton needed no encouragement. If there was a sport to play, a party to throw, a celebrity to amaze, a fireworks display to ignite, Plimpton was front and center hurling the pitch, popping the corks, lighting the fuse. And then, of course, writing about it with incomparable zest and style. His books made him a legend.The Paris Review, the magazine he founded and edited, won him a throne in literary heaven. Somehow, in the midst of his self-generated cyclones, Plimpton managed to toss off dazzling essays, profiles, andNew Yorker"Talk of the Town" pieces. This delightful volume collects the very best of Plimpton's inspired brief "excursions." Whether he was escorting Hunter Thompson to theFear and Loathingmovie premiere in New York or tracking down the California man who launched himself into the upper atmosphere with nothing but a lawn chair and a bunch of weather balloons, Plimpton had a rare knack for finding stories where no one else thought to look. Who but Plimpton would turn up in Las Vegas, notebook in hand, for the annual porn movie awards gala? Among the many gems collected here are accounts of helping Jackie Kennedy plan an unforgettable children's birthday party, the time he improvised his way through amateur night at Harlem's famed Apollo Theater, and how he managed to get himself kicked out of Exeter just weeks before graduation. The grand master of what he called "participatory journalism," George Plimpton followed his bent and his genius down the most unbelievable rabbit holesbut he always came up smiling. This exemplary, utterly captivating volume is a fitting tribute to one of the great literary lives of our time. From the Hardcover edition. Bookseller Inventory # ABE_book_usedgood_0812973720
