The Cinderella jump rope rhyme was in actual use in the United States at least as late as the 1970s and 1980s: "Cinderella, dressed in yella/Went downstairs to kiss her fella/By mistake her girdle busted/How many people were disgusted?/One, Two, Three, Four..." Fast forward to nowadays, and put that rhyme in the hands of speculative poets and short-story writers and their friends. These are people with a lurid sense of humor, a color palette not limited to yellow, and a deep interest in imagining for Cindy some life-changing experiences beyond snake kissing and girdle busting. The rhymes found in Cinderella Jump Rope Rhymes were written in a collaborative freestyle whimsy, with each author adding a rhyme until a delightful series had been created. Add to that the illustrative powers of artist Adam Oehlers, and the final product was this little chapbook. Cinderella Jump Rope Rhymes shows you what a childhood pastime looks like when you dial macabre up to eleven. If playground fun got married to the genetically engineered child of Joss Whedon and Neil Gaiman, their offspring would be Cinderella Jump Rope Rhymes. Go ahead, nourish your inner Victorian orphan - or buy a copy for the Wednesday Addams in your life. Cinderella Jump Rope Rhymes is a Cabinet des Fées production.

En un futuro no determinado, el Área X es un lugar remoto y escondido declarado zona de desastre ambiental desde hace décadas. La naturaleza salvaje ha conquistado el lugar y su acceso está prohibido. La agencia estatal Southern Reach ha enviado diversas expediciones pero casi siempre han fracasado: todos los miembros de una expedición se suicidaron; otros enloquecieron y acabaron matándose entre sí, y los integrantes de la última expedición regresaron convertidos en sombras de lo que un día fueron. Ésta es la expedición número doce. El grupo está compuesto por cuatro mujeres: una antropóloga, una topógrafa, una psicóloga y la narradora, una bióloga. Su misión es cartografiar el terreno y recolectar muestras, anotar todas sus observaciones tanto de su entorno como de sus compañeras. Pronto descubren una gran anomalía geográfica y formas de vida más allá de todo entendimiento. Mientras se enfrentan a una naturaleza tan bella como claustrofóbica, el pasado y los secretos con los que cruzaron la frontera se vuelven cada vez más amenazantes. Aniquilación es el primer volumen de la Trilogía Southern Reach, una serie que crea un mundo como nunca has imaginado y que nos enfrenta al extraño que se esconde dentro de nosotros mismos.

Handbook of Research on Children's and Young Adult Literature

This landmark volume is the first to bring together leading scholarship on children’s and young adult literature from three intersecting disciplines: Education, English, and Library and Information Science. Distinguished by its multidisciplinary approach, it describes and analyzes the different aspects of literary reading, texts, and contexts to illuminate how the book is transformed within and across different academic figurations of reading and interpreting children’s literature. Part one considers perspectives on readers and reading literature in home, school, library, and community settings. Part two introduces analytic frames for studying young adult novels, picturebooks, indigenous literature, graphic novels, and other genres. Chapters include commentary on literary experiences and creative production from renowned authors and illustrators. Part three focuses on the social contexts of literary study, with chapters on censorship, awards, marketing, and literary museums. The singular contribution of this Handbook is to lay the groundwork for colleagues across disciplines to redraw the map of their separately figured worlds, thus to enlarge the scope of scholarship and dialogue as well as push ahead into uncharted territory.

I had a little brother. His name was Tiny Tim. I put him in the bathtub To teach him how to swim. He drank all the water. He ate all the soap. He died last night With a bubble in his throat. Jump-rope rhymes, chanted to maintain the rhythm of the game, have other, equally entertaining uses: You can dispatch bothersome younger siblings instantly—and temporarily. You can learn the name of your boyfriend through the magic words "Ice cream soda, Delaware Punch, Tell me the initials of my honey-bunch." You can perform the series of tasks set forth in "Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear, turn around" and find out who, really, is the most nimble. You can even, with impunity, "conk your teacher on the bean with a rotten tangerine. " This collection of over six hundred jump-rope rhymes, originally published in 1969, is an introduction into the world of children—their attitudes, their concerns, their humor. Like other children's folklore, the rhymes are both richly inventive and innocently derivative, ranging from on-the-spot improvisations to old standards like "Bluebells, cockleshells," with a generous sprinkling of borrowings from other play activities—nursery rhymes, counting-out rhymes, and taunts. Even adult attitudes of the time are appropriated, but expressed with the artless candor of the child: Eeny, meeny, miny, moe. Catch Castro by the toe. If he hollers make him say "I surrender, U.S.A." Though aware that children's play serves social and psychological functions, folklorists had long neglected analytical study of children's lore because primary data was not available in organized form. Roger Abraham's Dictionary has provided such a bibliographical tool for one category of children's lore and a model for future compendia in other areas. The alphabetically arranged rhymes are accompanied by notes on sources, provenience, variants, and connection with other play activities.
