Summary

Reading about history can be boring at times but not when it is incorporated into a novel such as The Courier.  

The plot of this story is about the attempt to bring to the Americans information about the Nazis secret endeavors to produce an atomic bomb and the attempts of the Nazis to prevent the secret from falling into the hands of the Americans.                       

This story is encompassed by actual historical events in which those events told in this story occurred prior to, during, and after the Second World War in Europe.

The locales in this story are in Belgium, Germany, Poland, the Netherlands, Switzerland, and the United States; however, the stories in those locales arent necessarily told in that order. 

The main fictional characters in this book are an American navy captain, a Dutch family, and a German gestapo agent. Aside from several minor fictional characters, the other people that are described in this book were real people.

The events described with reference to the real people depicted in this book actually occurred. Think of this book as a promenade into the events of the last century, when one of the greatest wars in history was initiated by Adolf Hitler.

    Today’s children struggle with a range of issues, from depression and anxiety to poor body image and low self-esteem. In fact, research suggests that at any given time around 10 per cent of students will be suffering from a mental health issue that directly impacts on their education and health. Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) (the subject of Dr Russ Harris’s bestselling The Happiness Trap) has been proven to be effective in teaching young people effective, flexible strategies for dealing with the stressors in their life and these principles are now brought to life in this graphic novel. By following the main character, Holly, through her encounters with monsters (symbolising her inner doubts and unpleasant thoughts), children will learn how to similarly deal with their own issues and develop a more resilient mental attitude and achieve better emotional balance.

    Peace Love & Wi-Fi - A ZITS...

    The world of sixteen-year-old Jeremy Duncan revolves around his insatiable "growing boy" appetite, lip-locking with squeeze Sarah, keeping his jerry-rigged vehicle roadworthy, and playing with his band, Goat Cheese Pizza. Somewhere in the background, he's vaguely aware of some muted voices, constantly beseeching him to pick up his Matterhorn-sized clothes pile, to be home on time (so lame!), and to (God forbid!) communicate with them. The disembodied voices are those of Connie and Walt, his mostly patient, but sometimes frustrated to exploding, parents. In Zits, they portray a hilarious view of coping with a teenager and with being a teenager.	Created in 1997 by Pulitzer Prize-winning editorial cartoonist Jim Borgman and Reuben Award-winning cartoonist/writer Jerry Scott, Zits appears in more than 1,600 newspapers worldwide in 45 countries and is translated into 15 different languages. The comic has an estimated daily readership of more than 200 million readers.

    It’s all in the job description–or is it? It’s never just another day at the office in John Lustig’s Last Kiss comics series, a vintage-with-a-twist collection of 1950s and 60s art reimagined with Lustig’s cheeky modern dialogue. Last Kiss takes doctors, nurses, lawyers, stay-at-home moms, and flight attendants, aims at controlling bosses, sexual harassment, bad tippers, and, of course, overindulging on the clock, and lets fly. This e-book original collection invites you to enjoy the inanity of working life and have a few laughs along the way.

    A curious young scientist and comic book fan, Lio is the defender of the defenseless and the inventor of a legion of zombie bunnies. Lio is joined in his day-to-day exploits by his exasperated and sleep-deprived father, a pet snake named Frank, a squid named Ishmael, and various imaginary robots and creepy, crawly monsters. Within this humorously macabre framework of sarcasm, parody, and high jinks, sidesplitting laughter abounds—all without so much as a word.
