Book Short Summary:

Erin Law and her friends are Damaged Children. At least that is the label given to them by Maureen, the woman who runs the orphanage that they live in. Damaged, Beyond Repair because they have no parents to take care of them. But Erin knows that if they care for each other they can put up with the psychologists, the social workers, the therapists -- at least most of the time. Sometimes there is nothing left but to run away, to run for freedom. And that is what Erin and two friends do, run away one night downriver on a raft. What they find on their journey is stranger than you can imagine, maybe, and you might not think it's true. But Erin will tell you it is all true. And the proof is a girl named Heaven Eyes, who sees through all the darkness in the world to the joy that lies beneath.

Screen Adaptations and the Politics of Childhood

  • Pdf File: screen-adaptations-and-the-politics-of-childhood.pdf

Book Short Summary:

This book features a cutting edge approach to the study of film adaptations of literature for children and young people, and the narratives about childhood those adaptations enact. Historically, film media has always had a partiality for the adaptation of ‘classic’ literary texts for children. As economic and cultural commodities, McCallum points out how such screen adaptations play a crucial role in the cultural reproduction and transformation of childhood and youth, and indeed are a rich resource for the examination of changing cultural values and ideologies, particularly around contested narratives of childhood. The chapters examine various representations of childhood: as shifting states of innocence and wildness, liminality, marginalisation and invisibility. The book focuses on a range of literary and film genres, from ‘classic’ texts, to experimental, carnivalesque, magical realist, and cross-cultural texts.

Book Short Summary:

Frances Hodgson Burnett published numerous works for an adult readership, but she is mainly remembered today for three novels written for children: Little Lord Fauntleroy (1886), A Little Princess (1905) and The Secret Garden (1911). This volume is dedicated to The Secret Garden. The articles address a wide range of issues, including the representation of the garden in Burnett's novel in the context of cultural history; the relationship between the concept of nature and female identity; the idea of therapeutic places; the notion of redemptive children in The Secret Garden and Little Lord Fauntleroy; the concept of male identity; constructions of 'Otherness' and the redefinition of Englishness; film and anime versions of Burnett's classic; Noel Streatfeild's The Painted Garden as a rewriting of The Secret Garden; attitudes towards food in children's classics and Burnett's novel in the context of Edwardian girlhood fiction and the tradition of the female novel of development.

Do you have a misbehaving, violent, or otherwise problematic shapeshifter in your pack? Send them to the Junkyard, dumping ground and magical holding pen for unwanted shifters. Filthy Cowboy Stetson, a jaguar shifter, knows he’s exactly where he belongs: in the Junkyard, a place where all the bad shifters are sent. Reading books and fantasizing about the sweet librarian he’s never laid eyes on are his two main pleasures in life. But when Dew shows up, and his dangerous past returns to haunt him, he’ll have to shrug off his quiet, bookish ways and resurrect the beast inside of him in order to save his mate. Filthy Prince Damien knew there was something special about Gabrielle when he first laid eyes on her. The way she pushes his buttons makes his inner wolf howl to claim her. He doesn’t know why she ended their affair after one night, but he’ll do whatever it takes to keep her—and her baby—safe. Filthy Grizzly She’s off-limits. She’s his best friend’s little sister. But his inner grizzly wants nothing more than to claim her as his mate. This set includes Filthy Cowboy, Filthy Prince, and Filthy Grizzly. If you love dirty-talking heroes, smart heroines, and trashy romance, take the "guilty" out of "guilty pleasure" and buy your copy today!

An owlet hatches out onto Stormfast Island and into a world torn by war. For one hundred years, his people have fought off enemy owls from the Ice Talons, but the tide has turned. An invasion is coming, one the Kielian League won't have the strength to resist. Soon the tyrant owl Bylyric will rule over everything, and no honorable owl will be safe. Only the small owl from Stormfast stands between Bylyric and total victory. Lyze is not very impressive to look at, but he has a wild idea for a snake and owl strike unit that just might give the soldiers of the Kielian League the edge they need. This is his story, the story of an ordinary owl who rose to become Ezylryb of the Great Tree. This is the story of what it takes to make a Guardian of Ga'Hoole. * “Lyze's story can be read easily as a stand-alone tale. . . . Both thoughtful and action-packed, this adventure illuminates the fantastical world that exists between dusk and dawn.” -- KIRKUS REVIEWS, starred review “Lasky continues her best-selling Guardians of Ga'Hoole series with another skillfully crafted fantasy . . .

Book Short Summary:

Do you know what a Brideóg is? What could you cure if you licked a lizard nine times? Why is Whit Sunday the unluckiest day of the year? From the author of The Irish Cottage comes a new book, exploring old Irish customs and beliefs. Chapters focus on the quarter-day festivities that marked the commencement of each season: ‘Spring: Imbolc’; ‘Summer: Bealtaine’; ‘Autumn: Lughnasa’ and ‘Winter: Samhain’, and also major life events – ‘Births, Marriages and Death Customs’ – and general beliefs in ‘Spirituality and Well-Being’ and ‘The Supernatural’. Focusing on the period from the mid-nineteenth to the mid-twentieth centuries, Irish Customs and Rituals discusses a time during which many of the practices and beliefs in question went into decline. Many of these customs were rooted in residual pre-Christian beliefs that ran parallel to, and in spite of, conventional religion practised in the country. Some customs were so deep-rooted that despite continued disapproval from the Roman Catholic Church they remain with us today. It is wonderful to see so many traditions still with us, as many are worthwhile remembering, commemorating, or even reviving today. Irish Customs and Rituals will appeal to all those with an interest in Irish history, folklore, culture and social history. Marion McGarry is the author of The Irish Cottage: History, Culture and Design (2017). She has a PhD in Architectural History and an MA in History of Art and Design and is currently a lecturer at Galway–Mayo Institute of Technology. She frequently writes articles about Irish social history and customs.

Book Short Summary:

“We have relied on science to tell us what happened in ancient sites around the world, it is time for research that is connected to Source.” —Sonja Grace "Spirit Traveler: Unlocking Ancient Mysteries and Secrets of Eight of the World’s Great Historic Sites" takes a unique approach to analyzing why famous historic sites, including the Great Pyramids, Stonehenge, and Tiwanaku, were constructed. Scientists and archaeologists have written thousands of books about these sites. While this information is crucial to our knowledge today, much of the mystery about these places remains unsolved and questions surrounding their purpose have lingered throughout the centuries. "Spirit Traveler", the companion book to the documentary film with the same title, offers a completely different perspective on why these sites were erected and what purpose they served. Only Sonja Grace, the internationally known mystic healer, is able to reveal the secrets of these ancient buildings in this new and fascinating way. Sonja is a Spirit Traveler deeply devoted to the protection of our beautiful Earth. She has spent a lifetime working in the ethers with angels and guides. She sheds light on what the people and cultures of the past were doing at these sites and why, offering a brand new understanding of the events that took place there centuries ago. Sonja Grace brings her unique understanding of the truth to history. In Spirit Traveler, Sonja travels back through the realms to reveal history as it happened. She answers the questions that have puzzled historians and archaeologists for hundreds of years: What was the purpose of Stonehenge? How were the Great Pyramids built, and why is their particular geometry so significant? Why was Skellig Rock so important to the monks? Have our beliefs about these great sites been wrong all along? Is their importance something other than what we have always thought? Sonja Grace’s discoveries shine a whole new light on our historical understanding of these places and on their relationships to the Earth. Sonja Grace aims to bring a new spiritual truth to these questions and fulfill her purpose in the awakening of humanity. Spirit Traveler is a purposefully structured book. Sonja discusses eight specific historical sites: Skellig Michael (Ireland) Tiwanaku - The Gate of the Sun (Bolivia) Stonehenge (England) Hagar Qim (Malta) St. Winifride’s Well (Wales) Chichen ltza and Temple of Kukulcan (Mexico) The Great Khafre Pyramids (Egypt) the Rock of Cashel (Ireland). Each chapter tackles the scientific and historical information available about each site up to this point in time. Sonja addresses the questions that continue to puzzle archaeologists and historians. The second half of each chapter is devoted to Sonja’s Spirit Traveler’ experience, what she learned, and the answers to some of those longstanding questions. Few people possess the gifts of Sonja Grace. Her heritage (part Native American, part Norwegian) provides her with the extraordinary ability to transport anywhere. She sees, hears, smells and feels the places she visits. In Spirit Traveler, Sonja shares every single detail of her riveting travels through space and time. Her work is marked by her distinct understanding of the dimensions and realms along with the convergence of Divine and Earth energies, which allows her to travel through the ethers and gather historic information.

Book Short Summary:

Kevin O'Hara's journey of self-discovery begins as a mad lark: who in their right mind would try to circle the entire coastline of Ireland on foot—and with a donkey and cart no less? But Kevin had promised his homesick Irish mother that he would explore the whole of the Old Country and bring back the sights and the stories to their home in Massachusetts. Determined to reach his grandmother's village by Christmas Eve, Kevin and his stubborn but endearing donkey, Missie, set off on 1800-mile trek along the entire jagged coast of a divided Ireland. Their rollicking adventure takes them over mountains and dales, through smoky cities and sleepy villages, and into the farmhouses and hearts of Ireland's greatest resource—its people. Along the way, Kevin would meet incredible characters, experience Ireland in all of its glory, and explore not only his Irish past, but find his future self. “One of the finest books about contemporary Ireland ever written...In a style evocative of Steinbeck's Travels with Charley, O'Hara writes memorably of his most unusual way of touring his ancestral home of Ireland.” —Library Journal At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.
