Summary

At the Earth's Core by Edgar Rice Burroughs. Cutting through the earth in an extraordinary burrowing device, David Innes and Abner Perry fear they may be incinerated in the planet's fiery core.

There in an eerie, subterranean realm of vast oceans, lush jungles, and eternal noon, they encounter primitive humans and their beautiful, courageous queen, Dian.

    “A fascinating story.” —LeVar BurtonThe thrilling adventures of a slave who became known worldwide for his explorations of Mammoth Cave. If you toured Mammoth Cave in Kentucky in the year 1838, you would have been led by candlelight through dark, winding tunnels to the edge of a terrifying bottomless pit. Your guide would have been seventeen-year-old Stephen Bishop, an African American slave who became known around the world for his knowledge of Mammoth Cave. Bishop needed bravery, intelligence, and curiosity to explore the vast cavern. Using only a lantern, rope, and other basic caving equipment, he found a way to cross the bottomless pit and discover many more miles of incredible grottoes and tunnels. For the rest of his life he guided visitors through the cave, showing them how to stoop, bend, and crawl through passageways that were sometimes far from the traditional tour route. Based on the narratives of those who toured the cave with him, Journey to the Bottomless Pit is the first book for young readers ever written about Stephen Bishop. New to this edition: A free teacher’s guide to this book, as well as an interview with current-day Mammoth Cave guide Jerry Bransford, great-great-grandson of Stephen Bishop’s fellow guide, Mat Bransford.

One sweltering day, on their way back from a water fight at the park, they spot an old lady who has wound them up by bursting their football. They make a bad decision. The boys pedal up to the old lady's parked car and commit a drive-by soaking, before pedalling away as quickly as they can.

    In book one of this Christian chapter book series, two doves are charged with keeping Adam and Eve from succumbing to the serpent’s evil influence.   When God first created the world, He hung the sun and the moon in the sky, He filled the oceans and carved the mountains—and then, in His first garden, He created the very first flying creatures—Coo and Flutter, two very special doves on a mission of love.   In The Gardener’s Helpers, Coo and Flutter are given the important job of guiding and protecting Adam and his mate, Eve. Coo’s wacky ways and selfish desires blind him to the true mission God set out for him. He believes he can easily accomplish this seemingly simple task on his own. But when Flutter, his mate, discovers that Eve is missing, Coo finally takes the lead in a race against time to save her from the evil one. Tragically, they are too late. But God’s gift of forgiveness prepares Coo for the incredible journey that lies ahead. His mission is not over . . . it’s about to begin.
