Summary

Garis certainly knows how to hold the attention of the young! In this volume, our beloved rabbit gentleman, Uncle Wiggly, helps out Mother Goose and her nursery rhyme characters and each time he does, it turns into an adventure.

Out in the woods lives a happy gentleman rabbit named Uncle Wiggily Longears. He is as fond of fun as a kitten, and goes out to play whenever young ones come to visit.

One chilly, wintry day he leaves his cozy bungalow and puts on his jacket, scarf and mittens and goes for a ride in his wonderful airship. Once aloft he meets with a big surprise: for he sees a great white gander flying toward him -- with Mother Goose riding on its back!
But what happens next you may ask, I most certainly would!

In this volume Uncle Wiggily faces a host of new adventures -- and makes a wealth of new friends to enjoy them with. He meets Little Bo Peep, Jack Horner, Simple Simon, Miss Muffett, and Old King Cole. These are just a few of the nursery-rhyme characters the happy rabbit gentleman meets!

Expect to see your children spending hours curled up on their beds, or the couch, on a rainy afternoon lost in Uncle Wiggily stories.

    On a hot summer afternoon in 1944, SS troops wiped out an entire French village. 644 men, women and children died that day. Just one child survived. This book tells the story of what happened in Oradour, and imagines what drove both the SS officer who ordered the massacre, and the seven-year-old boy who escaped it.  
     
    Powerful, moving and almost unbearably tense, this book  weaves the truth about what happened to the people in Oradour into a powerful fictional story centred on two characters: the plucky, inspirational seven-year-old Alfred Fournier, refugee and resident of Oradour, and the hot-headed, power-hungry SS commander who shattered his world and changed his life for ever, Major Gustav Dietrich. As their two worlds collide, we gain a fascinating insight into the extremes and contradictions of human behaviour and emotion. With a twist in the tale, this is a story which leaves the reader surprised, inspired and profoundly moved.

    Wishing for something more than her adventureless life, 16-year-old Ash eagerly awaits the move she and her mother are taking from their dull, drab life in the prairie town of Treade. But as Ash counts the days, she finds her way into a mysterious, condemned building on the outskirts of town - one that has haunted her entire childhood with secrets and questions. What she finds inside is an untouched library, inhabited by an enchanting mute named Li. Brightened by Li's charm and his indulgence in her dreams, Ash becomes locked in a world of dusty books and dying memories, with Li becoming the attachment to Treade she never wanted. This haunting and romantic debut novel explores the blurry boundary between the real and imagined with a narrative that illustrates the power and potency of literacy.
