Chu es un panda que posee una extraña habilidad para meterse en dificultades. Los papás de Chu lo saben e intentan que el pequeño no estornude, pues como afirma el narrador: "Cuando Chu estornuda, ocurren cosas terribles". De hecho, su propio nombre suena a estornudo. Sin embargo, no es culpa de él, sino del polvo que hay en la vieja biblioteca que visitan o la pimienta del almuerzo. La obra destaca por su humor y su sencillez argumental; también por el sobresaliente trabajo del ilustrador Adam Rex, de quien Océano Travesía ha publicado con anterioridad Frankenstein se hace un sándwich y Frankenstein se lleva el pastel.

Under any description of the start of my life, the odds were against me. With the untimely death of my mother at age 31 in September and the suicide of my father on the following Christmas Day, I was orphaned at the age of two along with six siblings. Through the efforts of a Methodist pastor, we were placed in the Methodist Orphans Home in Waco, Texas on January 21, 1937. This is the story of my life and how I was able to overcome those gigantic odds. Who would believe that the two-year-old orphan boy would later serve for the last twenty-five years of his career as the President/CEO of the agency that rescued him and his six siblings?

Imagine if, through the practiced art of meditative touch, you discovered a molten stream of psychic energyjust below the surface of your hands. A mystical gateway to everyone around you, that revealed their deepest beliefs, their most intimate secrets. A window into the future that reduced all time to the eternal present moment. A source of immense power to healor to harm. Daniel Michaels develops mystical abilities that are somehow connected to his hands. Drawn into a world where terrorism and love become inextricably linked, he is periodically haunted by a recurring dream of imminent danger. Does it speak of the past, the future, or the frightening figments of a vivid imagination? In this riveting drama, author Costa John weaves the beauty of Africa, the tension of Middle East politics, the meaning of dreams, and the inspiring notion that a spiritual connection binds us all, into a romantic, political thriller that keeps readers guessing until the last page. What People Are Saying THE TOUCH OF A LIGHTER HAND Costa John 2005 Costa Johns intricately woven tale touches on the nuances of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict at a deeply human level. So often these clashes are reduced to bloody television coverage and statistics. In this story, the lives and intense passions of the key characters are inextricably connected. Within the grey areas of right and wrong, the righteous and the rebellious, is a world that Costa John describes with acute sensitivity and insight. His style of writing creates well drawn, rounded characters. Women play a powerful role in his novel. Too often in the genre of thriller, their role is victima mounting series of dead and mutilated bodies. If not dead, they are deadly. Whether tough and career minded, or siren and seducer, Johns female characters are also strong, flawed, irrational, passionate, fierce and caring. His principal character, Daniel Michaels, is an extraordinary man. His hands are imbued with energy that he describes as strangely able to project and receive life. His mystical power is latent but heightened by his increasing mastery of Aikido and the philosophy behind this martial art. But it extends beyond physical energy. He has paranormal abilities. His recurring dream grows on the reader and tugs at the edge of the sub-conscious. With mounting unease, as we track the time frame of the book, it leads us inexorably to a revelation, and a sense of dj vu. His soul mate, Liann Zellan, also has the power to heal. Evident from the first moment we meet them, they should and must be together. John keeps them tantalisingly apart, politically and emotionally. They are both attracted and troubled by each others standpoints. His Arabic blood, African heritage and American upbringing become a source of conflict as Liann struggles with a love she believes is at odds with her deep commitment to the Israeli cause. The plot takes the reader from Chicago to San Francisco, from the bush of Southern Africa to the Middle East. Here John masterfully personifies Middle Eastern conflict, where desires and goals seem tantalisingly congruent, but are more often at violent odds. The villains of Costa Johns thriller run the dark side from warring factions, feeding expediently off the conflict, to parasites who benefit from the richness of their hosts whatever side they may be on. For any South African reader, Michaels involvement in the Angolan war as a member of the South African Army in the 70s will resonate strongly. For American readers, this chapter in Africas history may evoke hauntingly similar memories of foreign conflicts in Korea, Vietnam, and Iraq. But he also draws a vivid picture of African wildlife that reinforces the romance, the wonder, the sights, and the sounds of Africa. The plot races to a climax th

As lyrical as a sonata, Ayelet Waldman’s follow-up novel to Love and Other Impossible Pursuits explores the aftermath of a family tragedy. Set on the coast of Maine over the course of four summers, Red Hook Road tells the story of two families, the Tetherlys and the Copakens, and of the ways in which their lives are unraveled and stitched together by misfortune, by good intentions and failure, and by love and calamity. A marriage collapses under the strain of a daughter’s death; two bereaved siblings find comfort in one another; and an adopted young girl breathes new life into her family with her prodigious talent for the violin. As she writes with obvious affection for these unforgettable characters, Ayelet Waldman skillfully interweaves life’s finer pleasures—music and literature—with the more mundane joys of living. Within these resonant pages, a vase filled with wildflowers or a cold beer on a hot summer day serve as constant reminders that it’s often the little things that make life so precious.

James Tobin, award-winning author of Ernie Pyle's War and The Man He Became, has penned the definitive account of the inspiring and impassioned race between the Wright brothers and their primary rival Samuel Langley across ten years and two continents to conquer the air. For years, Wilbur Wright and his younger brother, Orville, experimented in obscurity, supported only by their exceptional family. Meanwhile, the world watched as Samuel Langley, armed with a contract from the US War Department and all the resources of the Smithsonian Institution, sought to create the first manned flying machine. But while Langley saw flight as a problem of power, the Wrights saw a problem of balance. Thus their machines took two very different paths—Langley’s toward oblivion, the Wrights’ toward the heavens—though not before facing countless other obstacles. With a historian’s accuracy and a novelist’s eye, Tobin has captured an extraordinary moment in history. To Conquer the Air is itself a heroic achievement.

With a history of childhood loss and tragedy, Arliss Greene grows up to love his cattle more than his family. The memory of his family's displacement, due to TVA's construction of Norris Dam, stays with him as he struggles to make a living farming. His son Daniel tries to distance himself, but an inexplicable attachment to East Tennessee causes him to return to the hilltop where he grew up. He is shocked and disappointed when his wife, Leda, a city girl, ends up working with Arliss, farming the family land. Decisions are made, with repercussions that reverberate throughout their lives, the lives of their children, and the life of the farm from the 1930s to the beginning of the new century. Written with an unerring ear for the cadence and language of the South, Harvest is a powerful, character-driven novel. A story of family, marriage, farming, baseball, the power of memory, and what sustains people through loss, Harvest is a reckoning of sacrifices and a testament to human resilience. Catherine Landis, the author of the critically lauded BookSense 76 pick Some Days There's Pie, has written a compelling new novel with an assured Southern inflection and lovingly rendered three-dimensional characters.
