    David listened to what the others said and thought for a few moments. He didn't often talk to the other boys about what he was thinking, but this time he opened his mouth and said, "I'm going to be a millionaire and retire by the time I'm forty!" David Bussau grew up in New Zealand boys' homes where expectations of the young men were grim. David shattered those expectations, emerging as an enterprising teenager running a rented hot dog stand. Numerous business ownerships and financial success followed, and with that success, a vision to provide natural disaster relief and aid to the poor in Australia, Indonesia, India, and beyond. Today David's work continues through Opportunity International, a worldwide aid organization that offers small business loans to help the poor start and grow their own businesses. Certain of his direction, this hero to the world's poor is looking ahead, using business to advance the kingdom of God.

    For English people Beatrix Potter (1866–1943) is as famous as L.Carroll and A.A.Milne. We hardly know her fairy tales: in spite of their simplicity, her wonderful stories about rabbits, mice, frogs, and squirrels are very difficult to translate – they are full of idioms, puns and lambent humour.
    Graham Greene called Beatrix Potter "Children' Jane Austen" for deep understanding of the human nature, soft irony, ideal language and style. 
    The collection The Great Big Treasury of Beatrix Potter contains her best fairy tales that have been stealing a way to little readers' hearts for almost one hundred years already.

    The Tale of Peter Rabbit

    We Are A Circus is the charming, autobiographical tale of a rainbow family, riding around Thessaloniki on a bike. They are poor and living precariously, but they are happy together and have fun in the sun and in the rain (though sometimes they get a bit cold).
    As the book progresses, we follow them through the seasons, playing and cycling and fending off the weather. When their landlord turfs them out of their house, things get more serious as they have to find a new home, fast.
    Nasta has created an exuberant, compassionate story, which is beautifully complemented by Rosie Fencott's energetic artwork.
    **Longlisted for the 2024 Klaus Flugge Illustration Award **
    We are a circus.
    Fortunately not like the ones that train animals.
    (Fortunately means "happiness")
    We are trained by animals! They even make us jump through flaming hoops!
    
    I am kidding. Animals would never do this.
