    Fans of Jeff Kinney’s humor and Sharon Creech’s heartfelt stories will love the second book in this hilarious new series about a ten-year-old boy from a big family who dreams of making it into The Guinness Book of World Records. 
    Win or lose, friends stick together. But when Teddy’s whole class decides to break a bigger, better world record, friends turn into enemies. And Teddy feels stuck in the middle. To fix this mess, Teddy will have to do something he’s never done before—try not to break a record! Can he win at losing before his whole class misses out? And can Teddy be a winner at all without help from his friends? Humor and grit triumph in this story of one boy’s struggle to make peace in a class full of record breakers, a coop full of pigeons, and a world full of wonders. 
    Told in short, accessible sections with fun lists and highly rambunctious illustrations, the Teddy Mars series is perfect for reading aloud. Teddy’s never-give-up attitude will have readers laughing out loud and striving to break world records of their own.

    Two children held captive in a remote, abandoned abbey must escape . . . or die  At first, Mike believes he must be dreaming when he opens his eyes to total darkness. But before long, the awful truth becomes apparent: He is being held captive somewhere underground by persons unknown. At least he is not alone in this dank, cold, dungeonlike place; a frightened young girl named Carrie is trapped there alongside him, equally unsure of why she is there.   With no light, food, water, or answers, and no obvious way out, their situation seems hopeless. While Carrie is a city girl born and bred, Mike is a resourceful boy, at home in the English countryside, and he refuses to let them die in this terrible place. But escape may not be the end of the nightmare, for the world surrounding them holds mysteries beyond their imaginings.   A prolific storyteller and peerless creator of page-turning adventure, Geoffrey Household has been praised by the New York Times for having “helped to develop the suspense story into an art form.” With Escape into Daylight, he demonstrates the wide range of his remarkable talents, delivering an electrifying thriller that will appeal to readers of every age.

    Fluid mechanics is the branch of physics that studies the mechanics of fluids (liquids, gases, and plasmas) and the forces on them.  Fluid mechanics has a wide range of applications, including for mechanical engineering, chemical engineering, geophysics, astrophysics, and biology.  Fluid mechanics can be divided into fluid statics, the study of fluids at rest; and fluid dynamics which is the study of the effect of forces on fluid motion.
