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.

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. These are witty stories full of understated humour and populated by quirky yet recognisable characters, and narrated by Arthur who has the rational worldview that comes exclusively from being seven-years-old.REVIEWS Meet seven year old Arthur, the delightful hero of this new series.He often visits his grandparents house and when he is there he has wonderful adventures, which he shares in these stories.

Item Description: Akashic Books,U.S., United States, 2013. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 208 x 135 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. 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

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

Meet the brave girl whose midnight ride, like Paul Revere s, made her a hero of the American Revolution, in this middle grade historical fiction novel, part of the Based on a True Story series. What would you do if your country was counting on you? If you had a message that only you could deliver? That s the story of sixteen-year-old Sybil Ludington s famous midnight ride. In 1777, living in what is now New York, Sybil, her colonel father, and her family are Patriots, fighting against the British in the Revolutionary War. The British, however, are not the only enemy the Ludingtons every acquaintance, every neighbor, has the potential to be loyal to the British crown. When British troops raid Danbury, Connecticut, it is up to Sybil to get the word to her father s men. Only two years after Paul Revere s fateful ride, Sybil leaps atop her horse and rides the whole night through, avoiding near brushes with danger and successfully warning the Regiment. Sybil Ludington: Revolutionary War Rider by Karen Romano Young writing as E. F. Abbott, with illustrations by Clint Hansen. This title has Common Core connections. The Based on a True Story books by E. F. Abbott are exciting historical fiction stories about real children who lived through extraordinary times in American History. Other books in the Based on a True Story series are Mary Jemison: Native American Captive, John Lincoln Clem: Civil War Drummer Boy, and Nettie and Nellie Crook: Orphan Train Sisters. Abbott does a fine job in creating the 18th-century world of the American Revolution. History teachers will delight in the thorough descriptions of rebel espionage strategies and the images of their coded messages. . . . This will make a solid addition to library collections, as there is a dearth of materials regarding the brave acts of females and young people during the Revolutionary War. --School Library Journal.
