Alice's Adventures in Wonderland
by Carroll, Lewis

9780763608040Helen Oxenbury (Illustrator); Lewis CarrollAlice's Adventures in WonderlandLewis Carroll's timeless classic brought to life by one of the most revered children's book illustrators of our time! Suddenly a White Rabbit with pink eyes ran close by her. There was nothing so very remarkable in that; nor did Alice think it so very much out of the way to hear the Rabbit say to itself, "Oh dear! Oh dear! I shall be too late!" Lewis Carroll's masterpiece, an exuberant mix of fun and fantasy, logic and lunacy, silliness and droll splendor, revolutionized children's literature. Its influence has been immeasurable, and the story's cast of characters, including Alice herself, the Mad Hatter, and the Cheshire Cat, hold a beloved place in our culture. Now Helen Oxenbury, one of the world's most acclaimed illustrators--whose many books for children include the award-winning FARMER DUCK, by Martin Waddell, as well as her Tom and Pippo books--has brought her own special brand of magic to Lewis Carroll's classic. And ALICE'S ADVENTURES IN WONDERLAND is Helen Oxenbury at her very best. Her vision of Alice is unique and modern. Her Wonderland is fresh, whimsical, and lovingly created. With more illustrations than any other edition, this beautiful volume has all the warmth, depth of emotion, humor, and acute observations of people and animals for which Helen Oxenbury's work is so highly regarded. Join us in celebrating a major artistic achievement! And welcome back--to a Wonderland that is as astonishingly new as it is joyously familiar. - Description from Syndetics

Jethro Byrd, Fairy Child
by Graham, Bob

9780763617721Bob Graham (Illustrator)Jethro Byrd, Fairy ChildFrom the creator of MAX--a PUBLISHERS WEEKLY Best Book--comes a whimsical reminder that a family of fairies can be found in the unlikeliest of places, if you have the time to look Annabelle's dad has little time for fairies, which he assures her she won't find in the cement and the weeds of their urban backyard. But Annabelle has lots of time, so she keeps looking - even under her baby brother, Sam. And one day she finds what she's looking for: a thumb-sized fairy child named Jethro Byrd, whose family has made an awkward landing in a tiny ice cream truck among some discarded bottles and cans. What a wonderful chance to invite all the Byrds for tea with Mommy and Daddy! But why, Annabelle wonders - as the fairies fiddle and sing and dance and whistle away among the cake crumbs - are she and Sam the only ones who can see them? Bob Graham is back, as magical as ever, with a wry tale about the rewards of paying attention - and the marvelous discoveries to be made by seeing the world through the wide-open eyes of a child. - Description from Syndetics

Adventures of the Dish and the Spoon, The
by Grey, Mini

9780375836916Mini GreyThe Adventures of the Dish and the SpoonMini Grey's spin on the nursery rhyme classic "Hey diddle, diddle, the cat and the fiddle" is a love story of sorts that starts when "the dish ran away with the spoon." In the midst of the Great Depression, Dish and Spoon become rich and famous vaudeville stars--until their taste for the high life puts them in debt to a gang of sharp and shady characters (depicted as evil knives). The cinematic presentation--with a touch of Bonnie and Clyde, a dash of "The Perils of Pauline"--proves that crime doesn't pay and love conquers all. A visual treat with new details to discover again and again, here is absurd good fun for the whole family. - Description from Syndetics

Sir Gawain and the Loathly Lady
by Hastings, Selina

9780688070465Selina Hastings (Retold by); Juan Wijngaard (Illustrator)Sir Gawain and the Loathly LadySince the late nineteenth century, theatre has played a significant role in shaping social and political awareness in India. It has served to raise concerns in post-Independence India as well. Modern Indian Theatre: A Reader brings together writings that speak to the historical contexts from which theatrical practices emerged-colonization, socio-cultural suppression and appropriation, intercultural transformations brought about by the impact of the colonial forces, and acute critical engagement with socio-political issues brought about by the hopes and failures of Independence. The volume addresses pertinent questions like how drama influences social change, the response of drama to the emergence and domination of mass media and the proliferation and influence of western media in India, and how mediations of gender, class, and caste influence drama, its language, forms, and aesthetics. The Introduction by Nandi Bhatia provides a comprehensive understanding of the interface between Indian theatre and 'modernity'. - Description from Syndetics

The monster in his backyard is different. It's ancient. And wild. And it wants something from Conor. Something terrible and dangerous. It wants the truth. From the final idea of award-winning author Siobhan Dowd-- whose premature death from cancer prevented her from writing it herself-- Patrick Ness has spun a haunting and darkly funny novel of mischief, loss, and monsters both real and imagined. - Description from Syndetics
