"A book as unique and astonishing as it is chilling." - Fiction Reboot When her mother's cruelty is too much, Amy holds her teddy bear's paw and travels to the Other Place-a world where teddies become real bears, where children attend the Night School to escape whatever it is they face at home, where Amy becomes Aimee, and there's magic in the air. But the Other Place is in danger-the Witch has awoken, and Amy must find the courage to save her baby brother before it's too late. A dazzling, heart-wrenching and brutal descent into the world of the imagination. This is not a children's book. This is not a fairy tale. This is not your average heroine.

Ella Clah returns in Aimee and David Thurlo's Tracking Bear. "Mystery readers who like their murders solved by applied intelligence will love Ella Clah." --Tony Hillerman A group of businessmen is working to open a uranium mine and nuclear power plant on the Navajo Reservation. The NEED project will provide cheap power to the Navajo nation, employ many who are out of work, and earn income for the tribe by selling surplus power to Arizona, New Mexico, and other western states. Investigating the murder of a Navajo cop during a break-in and robbery, Navajo Police Special Investigator Ella Clah learns that the dead man's father, a retired physicist, is strongly opposed to uranium mining and nuclear plants. Ella's mother, Rose, opposes the plans as well, taking as her cause the health of the workers and the land. Kevin Tolino, the father of Ella's daughter, hires a bodyguard after receiving threats because of his public support of the project. A Navajo community college teacher is assaulted, and his office and home ransacked-apparently by the same person who murdered the Navajo police officer. A tribal official who opposes NEED is murdered. Clues seem to lead to a major supporter of the nuclear project, but the man insists he's being framed. Other area murders are also linked to NEED supporters-but why would a group of wealthy businessmen kill their opponents when they could just outspend them? There has to be more going on than political wrangling, but Ella is fumbling in the dark, with uncooperative witnesses and few clues.

I then compare Cesaire's Caribbean "shape" to that of Rene Depestre, and a quite different model emerges. I find that Africa is relatively absent in Depestre's work: Europe is not presented as a threat; and that Depestre, unlike Cesaire, sees, in the Caribbean, an energy and a creativity brought about by the historical fusion of disparate cultures. I consider how the reality of Depestre's long exile from the Caribbean has affected his views of the islands.

Balance is lost throughout the kingdom when the whimsical King, overcome by impatience, decides to plant the wrong type of tree in the Royal Gardens, ignoring the cautious advice of his wisest counsellors. As havoc spreads across the land an absurd, and at times comical, battle unfolds where nature plays its part alongside humans and other beings. This deeply symbolic tale, to be enjoyed by children and adults alike, provides an allegory on the inner struggle of humankind. It is a reflection on how our lack of internal clarity has generated much of the chaos and environmental degradation we see in the world today. Based on an original story published in South America in 1998, this new bilingual edition presents some minor corrections to the Spanish version along with an excellent translation to English. Students will also find in it a valuable tool, alternating between both languages by simply flipping the book over.

Although most of humanity is unaware of it, the world always has a way of protecting itself from the forces of darkness. The essences of fire, wind, water, electricity, earth, and spirit are willing to fight against the evil, although they must enter human hosts to do so. These people, called the Destined, arise roughly every seven hundred years to fight against oppression. And now the powers have chosen six hosts to protect the world: five teenagers and one teacher. As fate works to gather these chosen protectors, the earth finds itself under attack. Although world leaders of the past have been determined to conquer the known world, globalization and population growth have mostly caused the prominence of this goal to fade among the nations of the earth. But now a new force that apparently has world domination in mind has launched an assault against the entire world, and no government can pinpoint the source of the attack. The people of earth seem doomed. In preparation for the fight of their lives, the six Destined must work quickly to understand their powers and learn to work together if they are to have any hope of keeping humanity safe.

Langston Hughes survived as a writer for over forty years under conditions that made survival virtually heroic. Determined on a literary career at a time when no African American had yet been able to live off his or her writing, Hughes not only faced poverty and racism but found himself pressed by the conflicting hopes, expectations, and demands of readers and critics. He relied on his skill as a mediator among competing positions in order to preserve his art, his integrity, and his unique status as the poetic voice of ordinary African Americans. Which Sin To Bear? explores Hughes's efforts to negotiate the problems of identity and ethics he faced as an African American professional writer and intellectual. The book traces his early efforts to fashion himself as an "authentic" black poet of the Harlem Renaissance and his later imagining of a new and more inclusive understanding of authentic blackness. It examines Hughes's lasting, yet self-critical commitment to progressive politics in the mid-century years. And it shows how, in spite of his own ambivalence--and, at times, anguish--Hughes was forced to engage in ethical compromises to achieve his personal and social goals. The book is also the first to analyze Hughes's executive-session testimony before Joseph McCarthy's Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations, which was unavailable to the public for half a century. David Chinitz digs into Hughes's creative work, newspaper columns, letters, and unpublished papers to reveal a writer who faced a daunting array of dicey questions and intimidating obstacles, and whose triumphs and occasional missteps are a fascinating and telling part of his legacy.
