Do you enjoy spending a beautiful, sunny day at the beach? So does Charlie Crab. Charlie is a smart, athletic crab who just enjoys every day no matter what he is doing. He loves hanging out with his friends and his strong moral character urges him to also jump right in to offer help wherever it is needed. Seeing the happiness that others get from his help makes him feel special inside. Charlie is going to spend today at the beach just relaxing, swimming, and enjoying time with his friends. However, special events occur with a starfish that gets stuck and some bullies. Charlie eagerly handles these challenges. His actions show that he is always willing to lend a hand (or rather a claw) where needed and that he won’t tolerate bullying.

"If you look hard enough into the history of anything, you will discover things that seem to be connected but are not." So claims a character in Frederick Reiken's wonderful, surprising novel, which seems in fact to be determined to prove just the opposite. How else to explain the threads that link a middle-aged woman on vacation in Florida with a rock and roll singer visiting her comatose brother in Utah, where he's been transported after a motorcycle injury in Israel, where he works with a man whose long-lost mother, in a retirement community in New Jersey, recognizes him in a televised report about an Israeli-Palestinian skirmish? And that's not the half of it. In DAY FOR NIGHT, critically acclaimed writer Frederick Reiken spins an unlikely and yet utterly convincing story about people lost and found. They are all refugees from their own lives or history's cruelties, and yet they wind up linked to each other in compelling and unpredictable ways that will keep you guessing until the very end.

In each of the fifteen chapters in the book, Simpson covers a single island or group of islands, many of which, were it not for the buffering Outer Banks, would be lost to the ebbs and flows of the Atlantic. Instead they are home to unique plant and animal species and well-established hardwood forests, and many retain vestiges of an earlier human history.

Author Anthony Trevail was born in 1936 in Plymouth and witnessed first hand the terrible bombing of that city by Hitler’s Third Reich. Through the eyes of a child, the war is shown to have been a time of great adventure. Yet, looking back and writing with the hindsight of maturity, Trevail shows that for adults it was a time of fear and of tragedy. This book is of great interest not only for its evocation of what it was like for one family that lived through the devastation of war, but for the way it highlights how individual events, such as bolting horses, determine the course of history, making and breaking families along the way. This incredible story is based on real persons and events, as experienced by the author and also as recounted to him by his parents. To fill in certain gaps in the events, and to protect the identity of some of those still living, some names and events are fictional. Travel back to England to feel the effects of world war that became The Making of a Plymouth Family, 1924 to 1945.

Boom times came to the forgotten little southwestern town of Chamisaville just as the rest of America was in the Great Depression. They came when a rattletrap bus loaded with stolen dynamite blew sky-high, leaving behind a giant gushing hot spring. Within minutes, the town's wheeler-dealers had organized, and within a year, Chamisaville was flooded with tourists and pilgrims, and the wheeler-dealers were rich. Spanning forty years, The Magic Journey tells the tale of how progress transformed a rural backwater into a boomtown. At first, it was a magic time for Chamisaville—almost as if every day were a holiday. But the euphoria gradually dissipated, and the land-hungry developers, speculators, and interlopers moved in. Finally, the day came when Chamisaville's people found themselves all but displaced, their children no longer heirs to their land or their tradition. With mounting intensity, The Magic Journey reaches a climax that is tragically foreordained. A sensitive, vital, and honest chronicle of life in America's Southwest, it is also an incisive commentary on what America has become on its road to progress. The Magic Journey is part of the New Mexico Trilogy, which includes The Milagro Beanfield War and The Nirvana Blues.
