What do you do when you spot a wild Trump in the election season? New York Times best-selling author and comedian Michael Ian Black has some sage advice for children (and all the rest of us who are scratching our heads in disbelief) in this perfectly timely parody book intended for adults that would be hysterical if it wasn´t so true. The beasty is called an American Trump. Its skin is bright orange, its figure is plump. Its fur so complex, you might get enveloped. Its hands, though, are, sadly, underdeveloped. The Trump is a curious creature, very often spotted in the wild, but confounding to our youngest citizens. A business mogul, reality TV host, and now...political candidate? Kids (and, let´s be honest, many adults) might have difficulty discerning just what this thing that´s been dominating news coverage this election cycle is. Could he actually be real? Are those...words coming out of his mouth? Why are his hands so tiny? And, perhaps most importantly, what on earth do you do when you encounter an American Trump? With his signature wit and a classic style, comedian Michael Ian Black introduces those unfamiliar with the Americus Trumpus to his distinguishing features and his mystifying campaign for world domination...sorry...president of the United States. 1.

´IT TOOK ME LONGER TO FORGIVE MY DAD FOR NOT HELPING ME WHEN I WAS TORTURED, THAN TO FORGIVE THOSE SOLDIERS WHO TORTURED ME´.Mirsad Solakovic survived a war in which some 300,000 people died, but was left with psychological damage.Mirsad lived through the ethnic cleansing of Bosnian civilians, until his family escaped to the UK. Following his experiences, he became difficult and untractable, and refused to speak English - until dedicated and sympathetic teachers at his school in Birmingham brought him back into contact with those around him.This thought-provoking account of the Bosnian and Herzegovinian tragedy paints a uniquely intimate portrait of survival, revealing pain that has never faded, yet has not crushed the human spirit. It is also an uplifting account of just how effective good teachers can be when faced with deeply troubled pupils.
Andy Dalziel was preoccupied with the illegal book that one of his Sergeants was running on who was to be appointed as the new Chief Constable...and how to make sure his own bet paid off. But when a battered Ford Escort containing one very dead Italian turned up in the police car park, Peter Pascoe and his bloated superior were plunged into an investigation that made internal police politics look like child´s play. 1.

A prequel to the vampire series ´´The Firsts´´...A Novella that takes a step back to see where the heroine of Forbidden Days came from. Punk took care of her drug, sex, and alcohol addicted mother as well as she could. Their dismal apartments were always spic and span after Mother´s ´´parties´´ because Punk wanted to please her mother and she had a natural sense for order. All she really wanted was for her mother to love her, but no matter how hard she tried, Mother looked at her like she was a monster. And she knew why...it was because of her bizarre talents. Punk knew she was different, she just didn´t know why. This novella is a prequel to the Vampire Series ´´The Firsts´´ and tells the story of the troubled childhood of that book´s heroine. It is a dark tale that details some of what she went through with her mother, addicted to drugs and alcohol, and made a living providing sex for men. We learn later that there are reasons that her mother is so troubled, but this novella is mostly the child´s story as seen from that point of view. It is harsh at times, but true to her journey that begins, as a successful woman, in the first book of the series, Forbidden Days. It is an introduction to new readers, and a special glimpse into the past for those who already know this Bestselling series. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Natalie Duke.
