BREEDING NEW PLANTS AND FLOWERS
Breeding New Plants and Flowers brings the skills of hybridizing a unique plant within the scope of every gardener. Over 180 color illustrations and 50 line drawings support the text and explain the steps to this most rewarding and magical aspect of gardening. Topics covered include an introduction to the principles of breeding; descriptions of the breeding of some 30 plants, ranging from fuchsias to roses and tomatoes to strawberries; instruction on pollination, growing the seed, seedling care, taking leaf cuttings, potting on and planting out; and advice on how beginners can crossbreed successfully and how the more experienced hybridist can experiment with sophisticated crosses.
THREE MEN IN A BOAT (TO SAY NOTHING OF THE DOG)
Martyrs to hypochondria and general seediness, J. and his friends George and Harris decide that a jaunt up the Thames would suit them just fine. But when they set off, they can hardly predict the troubles that lie ahead with tow-ropes, unreliable weather forecasts, and tins of pineapple chunks-not to mention the devastation left in the wake of J.'s small fox-terrier Montmorency. Three Men in a Boat (To Say Nothing of the Dog) was an instant success when it appeared in 1889, and, with its benign escapism, authorial discursions, and wonderful evocation of the late-Victorian clerking classes, it hilariously captured the spirit of its age.
AGUA PARA ELEFANTES/ WATER FOR ELEPHANTS (SPANISH
As a young man, Jacob Jankowski was tossed by fate onto a rickety train that was home to the Benzini Brothers Most Spectacular Show on Earth”. It was the early part of the great Depression, and for Jacob, now ninety, the circus world he remembers was both his salvation and a living hell. A veterinary student just shy of a degree, he was put in charge of caring for the circus menagerie. It was there that he met Marlena, the beautiful equestrian star married to August, the charismatic but twisted animal trainer. And he met Rosie, an un-trainable elephant who was the great gray hope for this third-rate traveling show. The bond that grew among this unlikely trio was one of love and trust, and, ultimately, it was their only hope for survival.

LITTLE GUY HAIKU: LIFE WITH BAILEY, A MALTESE
On an icy night, two muggers took Bailey—a five-pound Maltese—from the poet’s older daughter. Soon after, they released him into the darkness, he miraculously survived freezing temperatures, and he came back with minor injuries the next day. Now he fills the house of his owner and the rest of the family with delight and mirth. This picture book collects 100 light-hearted haiku written by the poet as he took care of Bailey in 2008 while the dog’s “mommy” was attending law school out of state. The works convey the poet’s keen observation of Bailey’s amusing behavior and his appreciation of the toy dog’s presence in his life. This is a story of suffering, agony, triumph, and joy delivered in verse form. Beautifully illustrated by the poet’s younger daughter, this small volume is an essential reading for all pet lovers.

PRINCE AND OTHER DOGS, 1850-1940
A stunning and original compendium of photographs starring dogs and their owners. Prince is a beautiful collection of Victorian photographs of dogs posing with and without their loving owners. Charming and strangely moving, these photographs defy conventional expectations. Seemingly a random assortment-the photographs were rescued by the author from a junkshop-they gradually assume a sense of meaning, as if there were a story being told with every picture. Both hilarious and poignant, Prince and Other Dogs is the ideal gift for anyone who loves dogs.
THE HAUNTED CASTLE (GERONIMO STILTON, NO. 46)
More than 18 million Geronimo Stilton books in print! I was just minding my business at home when I got a telephone call. It was my uncle Samuel S. Stingysnout, inviting the whole Stilton family to creepy, faraway Penny Pincher Castle for a big surprise. Moldy mozzarella -- I'm not much of a traveling mouse, and I hate surprises. But Thea, Trap, and Benjamin were going, so I couldn't say no. I could tell this was going to be one super-spooky trip!
GERONIMO STILTON #57: THE STINKY CHEESE VACATION
Each Geronimo Stilton book is fast-paced, with lively full-color art and a unique format kids 7-10 will love. I, Geronimo Stilton, was finishing up work one evening when I opened a letter from Uncle Stingysnout. He needed to see me immediately! I headed straight to Penny Pincher Castle for what I thought would be a nice visit... but my uncle put me straight to work. Moldy mozzarella, what a terrible vacation!
THE GOD OF SMALL THINGS
Winner of the 1997 Booker Prize. The richly exotic story of the childhood the twins Esthappen and Rahel craft for themselves amongst India's vats of banana jam and mountains of peppercorns. Repackaged as part of the 2008 Perennial fiction promotion. More magical than Mistry, more of a rollicking good read than Rushdie, more nerve-tinglingly imagined than Naipaul, here, perhaps, is the greatest Indian novel by a woman. Arundhati Roy has written an astonishingly rich, fertile novel, teeming with life, colour, heart-stopping language, wry comedy and a hint of magical realism. Set against a background of political turbulence in Kerala, Southern India, 'The God of Small Things' tells the story of twins Esthappen and Rahel. Among the vats of banana jam and heaps of peppercorns in their grandmother's factory, they try to craft a childhood for themselves amidst what constitutes their family -- their lonely, lovely mother, their beloved Uncle Chacko (pickle-baron, radical Marxist and bottom-pincher) and their avowed enemy; Baby Kochamma (ex-nun and incumbent grand-aunt).
THE GOD OF SMALL THINGS
The story of the tragic decline of an Indian family whose members suffer the terrible consequences of forbidden love, The God of Small Things is set in the state of Kerala, on the southernmost tip of India. Armed only with the invincible innocence of children, the twins Rahel and Esthappen fashion a childhood for themselves in the shade of the wreck that is their family -- their lonely, lovely mother, Ammu (who loves by night the man her children love by day), their blind grandmother, Mammachi (who plays Handel on her violin), their beloved uncle Chacko (Rhodes scholar, pickle baron, radical Marxist, bottom-pincher), their enemy, Baby Kochamma (ex-nun and incumbent grandaunt), and the ghost of an imperial entomologist's moth (with unusually dense dorsal tufts). When their English cousin and her mother arrive on a Christmas visit, the twins learn that Things Can Change in a Day. That lives can twist into new, ugly shapes, even cease forever. The brilliantly plotted story uncoils with an agonizing sense of foreboding and inevitability. Yet nothing prepares you for what lies at the heart of it.
