Book Summary:

Mei Luo from a medical family mistakenly came to the Great Qing Dynasty, which she disliked the most. She was able to keep a low profile and enter the palace for the sake of concealing her strength, but due to a moment of soft-heartedness. Her deceitful life as a harem made her float like a duckweed, and after experiencing wind and rain and emotional trauma, she eventually stepped out of the walls of the palace, becoming "walking before the emperor" and patrolling the prison in the place of the Son of Heaven. "Are you afraid of loving me?" he asked, with a thousand tender lines between his brows, but only for her sake. "So what if you're by my side? You'll take on the entire world!" She raised her eyebrows and laughed wildly.

Book Summary:

Listening to children read, both at home and at school, has long been regarded as a vital element in the teaching of reading. However, it is a practice which is rarely examined in any detail. This book shows why it is not enough just to 'Hear Readers' and demonstrates how adult interventions should change as children's reading develops through five distinct but overlapping stages. This book explains the central importance of cues - those providers of the information which a reader uses to solve a problem word - and redefines 'the basics' by identifying the three permanent components of reading - 'Reading The Lines', 'Between The Lines' and 'Beyond the Lines'. The authors outline practical classroom activities to help children develop competence in balancing cues, highlighting the integration of meaning and phonics. This accessible book will be an invaluable resource for all adults involved in teaching reading. It provides a rationale for good practice and offers practical and adaptable materials which can be used to support initial training, Inset, workshops for classroom helpers, and parent-meetings.

Book Summary:

James Taylor remembers very well the disappointment among his petrol-head friends when the XJ-S was announced in 1975. It was not a replacement for the legendary E-type; its colours were uninspired; and its interior was drab. All credit, then, to those people at Jaguar who truly believed in the car and, over a period of nearly 20 years, turned the ugly duckling into a swan. From the moment the XJ-S HE arrived in 1981, there seemed to be renewed hope, and from then on, the car went from strength to strength to become the much-admired grand tourer it always should have been. The book contains a timeline of the key events in the history of the XJ-S and an overview of the evolution of the XJ-S from the XJ27 prototype. Packed with details it gives UK showroom prices through the year and sales in the US by year. Of great interest to all motoring and Jaguar enthusiasts, it is superbly illustrated with 192 colour and black & white photos. James Taylor has been writing professionally about road transport since the late 1970s, his primary interest is in those models that made the British motor industry great.

Book Summary:

Katherine Arden’s bestselling debut novel spins an irresistible spell as it announces the arrival of a singular talent with a gorgeous voice. “A beautiful deep-winter story, full of magic and monsters and the sharp edges of growing up.”—Naomi Novik, bestselling author of Uprooted Winter lasts most of the year at the edge of the Russian wilderness, and in the long nights, Vasilisa and her siblings love to gather by the fire to listen to their nurse’s fairy tales. Above all, Vasya loves the story of Frost, the blue-eyed winter demon. Wise Russians fear him, for he claims unwary souls, and they honor the spirits that protect their homes from evil. Then Vasya’s widowed father brings home a new wife from Moscow. Fiercely devout, Vasya’s stepmother forbids her family from honoring their household spirits, but Vasya fears what this may bring. And indeed, misfortune begins to stalk the village. But Vasya’s stepmother only grows harsher, determined to remake the village to her liking and to groom her rebellious stepdaughter for marriage or a convent. As the village’s defenses weaken and evil from the forest creeps nearer, Vasilisa must call upon dangerous gifts she has long concealed—to protect her family from a threat sprung to life from her nurse’s most frightening tales. Praise for The Bear and the Nightingale “Arden’s debut novel has the cadence of a beautiful fairy tale but is darker and more lyrical.”—The Washington Post “Vasya [is] a clever, stalwart girl determined to forge her own path in a time when women had few choices.”—The Christian Science Monitor “Stunning . . . will enchant readers from the first page. . . . with an irresistible heroine who wants only to be free of the bonds placed on her gender and claim her own fate.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review) “Utterly bewitching . . . a lush narrative . . . an immersive, earthy story of folk magic, faith, and hubris, peopled with vivid, dynamic characters, particularly clever, brave Vasya, who outsmarts men and demons alike to save her family.”—Booklist (starred review) “An extraordinary retelling of a very old tale . . . The Bear and the Nightingale is a wonderfully layered novel of family and the harsh wonders of deep winter magic.”—Robin Hobb
