When preparing for a magic show, Anna and her friends find a talent for trouble instead in the eighth book of this “fast-paced, fun, and funny” (Megan McDonald, bestselling author of the Judy Moody series) illustrated chapter book series about the joys and challenges of elementary school friendships. Anna, Sadie, and Isabel develop an interest in magic tricks when their frenemy Justin mystifies them with a cool card trick but refuses to tell them how he did it. Determined to figure it out for themselves, the girls set out for the best place to find answers—the library!—ready to learn every magic trick in the book. But magic isn’t as easy as it appears, even with a book of instructions. When Anna goes to her neighbor Mrs. Shirley for advice, she finds out that while Mrs. S doesn’t know any magic tricks herself, her very favorite birthday party ever was a magician show where the magician pulled a rabbit out of a hat. With the neighborhood potluck coinciding with Mrs. Shirley’s seventy-sixth birthday, Anna and her friends decide to practice their own magic act to perform for her, but a whole slew of mix-ups ensue as they try to puzzle out how the tricks are done and how to figure out Justin’s secret, too. Can Anna and her friends perform some magic and get the mix-ups under control before—presto—it’s showtime?

This is a book primarily intended for adults, with special interest for children. It reflects fictious products, real relationships, needed for puppies and owners and real-life confrontations in relationships. The book focuses on humor, but the humor is tempered by the reality of owning and being owned by a pet. The photos included with the narrative will put, with grace, a smile on your face. Dr. Sam, the female poodle, in the end - at least this end - marries Bingo, the adorable, masculine Havanese. Their story will continue in a sequel, The Family Portrait Album of Dr. Sam and Bingo. As in real life, the story continues . . . as time marches on, and on, and on . . .

(back cover description) In the beginning months of 2006, I rode a $35 bicycle 3200km around New Zealand. I embarked on this adventure for several reasons: I couldn't find a full-time job in my field of education, I wanted to experience a place I'd never been and I wanted to see if I could actually do it. The goal was simple: get from Christchurch to Auckland by bicycle. With that goal in mind for 97 days, the obstacles between A and B became less difficult to overcome. It's easy to make things complicated in life. When I challenged myself to do something very simple, I found that sometimes things are not as complicated as they seem. Or at least they don't have to be.

Never intended for anyone’s eyes except parents, these letters are now compiled by the author for her adult children to read and relive the life they loved growing up in Zaire, Africa (Democratic Republic of Congo). Stored by her mother-in-law in old film boxes for three decades, they serve as a record of daily life in a family learning to survive and thrive and do ministry in a developing country. Daily water and electricity and regular mail became luxuries to celebrate in prayer and praise. Often considered by others to be a unique life, in reading you may encounter the unique, but guaranteed are also some boring details that were not omitted in the copying process so the children would understand what life involved for their parents. Whether unique, boring or difficult, these were deemed a privilege by the author and her husband who regard themselves as simply obedient to a call to that life out of their deep love for Jesus, their Lord and Savior who loved them and gave his life for them.

When a person you love is terminally ill, you wish and wish for their pain to go away. You even pray for it. Then the cold reality of death stares you in the face, and you start praying for something new - one more day with them, one more hour, one more minute - and you would give anything to have it. When John R. Davis lost his life partner - fondly called his Banana Bread Man - to brain cancer, he also lost himself. He wondered how his world could ever be anything other than gray. Jack had been the one to bring color into his life. How could Davis expect to experience joy again without his mate of twenty-seven years? How would he survive the loss of Jack's magnanimous presence? Did he even want to survive? Finding My Banana Bread Man is a love story that: * guides people mourning the loss of a loved one * takes them through shock, despair, and loneliness * inspires all those who support them in their life-changing journeys Embracing his partner's memory through "tiny deeds of good action," poetry, letters, and scholarships helped Davis transcend grief. More than that, he was finally able to reconnect with the person he used to be before Jack died. Today, he dedicates his life to helping those who are suffering after the premature deaths of their spouses, mates, or partners. http: //www.findingmybananabreadman.com

From the author of Writing Down the Bones: This novel about a Brooklyn-born woman’s self-reinvention in Taos, New Mexico, “explodes with wit and vision” (Indianapolis News). Nell Schwartz is a Brooklyn-born Jewish girl who reinvents herself in the communes of Taos, renaming herself Banana Rose—because she’s “bananas.” But Nell struggles with her inner fears and desires, the demands of the artist’s life, and the irrepressible call of home. While living in New Mexico, Nell falls in love with and marries a free-spirited horn player named Gauguin. They travel east to experience city life, and then to the Midwest to be closer to family, but their tempestuous relationship cools as Nell’s free-spiritedness and Jewishness seem under constant scrutiny. For solace, Nell turns to her friend Anna, a writer who teaches Nell what it means to be an artist. Nell is slowly transformed by love, loss, and art, gaining a new sense of self. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Natalie Goldberg, including rare photos and never-before-seen documents from the author’s personal collection.

Abigail Apple is running late to meet her blind date when she’s pulled over for speeding. Unfortunately, the follow-the-rules cop doesn’t care that she’s late, let alone that she’s heartbroken because her favorite dog rescue is in danger of being closed. Now she has to meet her date with mud drying on her heels, dog hair covering her dress, and the smell of a barn perfuming her hair. When she arrives, however, Abigail learns her handsome blind date is none other than the cop who pulled her over. Abigail has no intention of staying until she learns Cooper Hill is heading a committee for the city that will award a six-figure donation to a charity of their choice. So, what’s a girl to do? Abigail decides a second date is the perfect way to convince Cooper to vote for the dog rescue. Soon, however, Abigail is less interested in Cooper’s vote than she is in his deep voice, kind heart, and tender touch. Will this follow-the-rules cop and this follows-her-heart animal lover learn that despite poor first impressions, second chances can lead to love?

''Hilariously honest. . . a kind of rake's progress' Daily Mail An element of drama has always attended Rupert Everett, even before he swept to fame with his outstanding performance in 'Another Country'. He has spent his life surrounded by extraordinary people, and witnessed extraordinary events. He was in Moscow during the fall of communism; in Berlin the night the wall came down; and in downtown Manhattan on September 11th. By the age of 17 he was friends with Andy Warhol and Bianca Jagger, and since then he has been up close and personal with some of the most famous women in the world: Julia Roberts, Madonna, Sharon Stone and Donatella Versace. Whether sweeping the floor for the Royal Shakespeare Company or co-starring with Faye Dunaway and an orang-utan in 'Dunstan Checks In' (they both took ages to get ready), Rupert Everett always brings as much energy and talent to his life as he does to his career. A superb raconteur and a keen observer of human folly (especially his own), Rupert Everett turns his life into a captivating story of love, fame, glamour, gossip and drama. Praise for Red Carpets and Other Banana Skins 'He has an almost fanatical loyalty to the concept of enjoyment, to the detriment, it might be argued, of his art, though to the great enrichment of his being; and for Rupert, as he makes clear in this continuously brilliant memoir, the best theatrical autobiography since Noël Coward's Present Indicative, acting is being...a superb and unexpectedly inspiring achievement' Simon Callow, Guardian 'Lush, profoundly reflective, and thoroughly satisfying...a heady triumph of observation and reverie' Independent 'What makes this autobiography a (novelistic) masterpiece is the way he is acutely aware of the melancholia and pain that are the other side of hedonism's coin' Daily Telegraph
