Summary:

See below for English description. Le grand-père d'Élise est un scientifique de renommée mondiale... coincé dans le corps d'un garçon de 14 ans. Ses pieds sentent mauvais, il mange tout ce qu'il y a dans le réfrigérateur, et pourtant, Élise ADORE l'avoir à ses côtés. Son grand-père a peut-être de la difficulté à s'intégrer à l'école secondaire, mais, au moins, il rend les choses intéressantes. Quand Élise et lui font équipe pour une grande expo-science, personne ne réalise à quel point leur expérience sera révolutionnaire. En effet, la formule pour obtenir la jeunesse éternelle pourrait bien être à leur portée! Et quand le chat d'Élise tombe soudainement malade, les enjeux deviennent plus élevés que jamais. Mais la clé de l'immortalité est-elle vraiment la clé du bonheur? Parfois, même les expériences les plus minutieusement préparées mènent à des résultats totalement inattendus. Elise's grandpa Melvin is a world-renowned scientist...in the body of a fourteen-year-old boy. His feet stink, and he eats everything in the refrigerator -- and Elise is so happy to have him around. Grandpa may not exactly fit in at middle school, but he certainly keeps things interesting. When he and Elise team up for the county science fair, no one realizes just how groundbreaking their experiment will be. The formula for eternal youth may be within their reach! And when Elise's cat, Jonas Salk, gets sick, the stakes become even higher. But is the key to eternal life really the key to happiness? Sometimes even the most careful experiments yield unexpected -- and wonderful -- results. Original title: The Third Mushroom

Summary:

A front row seat to the breaking news, photos and hype surrounding history's most mysterious disappearances. Breaking History books offer a front row seat to history as it broke (like “breaking news”) and give the blow-by-blow of historical discovery—what we learned, when we learned it, who made the discovery, and how. Vanished! is an illustrated tour of history’s most confounding cases of disappearance from Amelia Earhart to Jimmy Hoffa; DB Cooper; Alcatraz escapists Frank Morris, John Anglin, and Clarence Algin; Jim Thompson; Judge Joseph Force Crater; and more. Starting with the first 30 days surrounding each incident, and then looking at efforts up to this very day to solve each case, this book covers in photos and text history’s most perplexing vanishings.

Née en 1880 dans l’Alabama, la petite Helen Keller devient aveugle et sourde à l’âge de dix-neuf mois, probablement des suites d’une méningite. Elle devient alors incapable de communiquer avec son entourage, si ce n’est avec quelques gestes maladroits. Sa vie va être bouleversée à l’âge de six ans quand ses parents engagent Annie Sullivan comme gouvernante. Annie Sullivan, alors âgée de 20 ans, vient de finir ses études à l’Institut pour aveugles Perkins. Elle-même mal voyante, elle a appris à enseigner la langue des signes dans cette institution précurseur. Elle va prendre en charge l’éducation de Helen Keller, et au fil des mois elle va réussir non seulement à établir un contact avec l’enfant, mais à lui apprendre le langage des signes, puis l’écriture. Les deux femmes resteront amie à vie.Helen Keller deviendra une figure de la société américaine, écrivain féministe, elle mènera également un combat politique, sera membre du parti socialiste américain et créera une fondation. Complémentaire des livres ou films existant à propos d’Helen Keller, cette bande dessinée est centrée sur l’histoire de cette extraordinaire rencontre et sur les nombreux obstacles contre lesquels va buter Annie Sullivan dans une famille très conservatrice du Sud des États-Unis. Une incroyable leçon d’humanité, magnifiquement dessinée par Joseph Lambert.

Summary:

CSI meets history and investigative journalism in this series that includes both classic and contemporary unsolved mysteries. Unsolved Mysteries bridges the gaps among social studies, applied sciences, modern folklore, and technology not only by diving into the narrative explanations of the cases but also by exploring how researchers work to solve them and why these cases continue to fascinate readers. This series provides readers with historical information on well-known unsolved mysteries as well as the current standings of investigation and explains how scientists, theorists, and others have examined the evidence of each case, sighting, killing, or disappearance. Readers will be left with a clear understanding of why the subject still stumps investigators as well as why so many people are fascinated by it--and what modern technology can provide to us in possibly answering each of these questions. Unsolved Mysteries is a series in Essential Library, an imprint of ABDO Publishing Company.

Summary:

When Amelia Earhart disappeared on July 2, 1937, she was flying the longest leg of her around-the-world flight and was only days away from completing her journey. Her plane was never found, and for more than sixty years rumors have persisted about what happened to her. Now, with the recent discovery of long-lost radio messages from Earhart's final flight, we can say with confidence that she ran out of gas just short of her destination of Howland Island in the Pacific Ocean. From the beginning of her flight, a series of tragic circumstances all but doomed her and her navigator, Fred Noonan. Authors Elgen M. and Marie K. Long spent more than twenty-five years researching the mystery surrounding Earhart's final flight before finally determining what happened. They traveled over one hundred thousand miles to interview more than one hundred people who knew some part of the Earhart story. They draw on authoritative sources to take us inside the cockpit of the Electra plane that Earhart flew and recreate the final flight itself. Because Elgen Long began his own flying career not long after Earhart's disappearance, he can describe the equipment and conditions of the time with a vivid first-hand accuracy. As a result, this book brings to life the primitive conditions under which Earhart flew, in an era before radar, with unreliable communications, grass landing strips, and poorly mapped islands. Amelia Earhart: The Mystery Solved does more than just answer the question, What happened to Amelia Earhart? It reminds us how daring early aviators such as Earhart were as they risked their lives to push the technology of the day to its limits -- and beyond.

Summary:

“[A] superb history.... In these thrilling, highly readable pages, we meet Rasputin, the shaggy, lecherous mystic...; we visit the gilded ballrooms of the doomed aristocracy; and we pause in the sickroom of little Alexei, the hemophiliac heir who, with his parents and four sisters, would be murdered by the Bolsheviks in 1918.” —The Wall Street Journal Here is the tumultuous, heartrending, true story of the Romanovs—at once an intimate portrait of Russia's last royal family and a gripping account of its undoing. Using captivating photos and compelling first person accounts, award-winning author Candace Fleming (Amelia Lost; The Lincolns) deftly maneuvers between the imperial family’s extravagant lives and the plight of Russia's poor masses, making this an utterly mesmerizing read as well as a perfect resource for meeting Common Core standards. "An exhilarating narrative history of a doomed and clueless family and empire." —Jim Murphy, author of Newbery Honor Books An American Plague and The Great Fire "For readers who regard history as dull, Fleming’s extraordinary book is proof positive that, on the contrary, it is endlessly fascinating, absorbing as any novel, and the stuff of an altogether memorable reading experience." —Booklist, Starred "Marrying the intimate family portrait of Heiligman’s Charles and Emma with the politics and intrigue of Sheinkin’s Bomb, Fleming has outdone herself with this riveting work of narrative nonfiction that appeals to the imagination as much as the intellect." —The Horn Book, Starred Winner of the Los Angeles Times Book Prize for Young Adult Literature Winner of the Boston Globe–Horn Book Award for Nonfiction A Robert F.

Summary:

When Amelia Earhart was eleven, she saw her first airplane. At the time she thought it was "not at all interesting." Despite this beginning, Amelia would go on to become one of the most famous aviators of her day. Never conventional, she grew up playing football and later studied automobile-engine repair. But she was planning a career in medical research, when on Christmas Day, 1920, she took her first plane ride -- a ride that changed her life. She bought her first plane the following year, and by 1928 became the first woman to fly across the Atlantic Ocean. Amelia Earhart went on to have many more flying adventures, but perhaps her best known flight is the one from which she never returned. When she disappeared mysteriously, Amelia Earhart was considered a hero.
