      Hello again, here you will find BARGAINS from previous list and also BARGAINs from new titles. If you grab yourself a BIG  bundle more discount will de offered!!! Thank you for your support, God Bless you Joseph Adrift by Allan Baillie pb ec 50c…Ever since the farm failed, Flynn has had to take care of his baby sister. Now, on vacation, that means walking along the seashore for hours until Sally finds her share of shells. Then Flynn finds a big crate--a perfect pirate ship--and he and Sally climb aboard. The tide carries them away from land, and the boy soon realises that they are in serious trouble. Several boats pass them and, as in Steven Callahan's novel (also titled Adrift ), Baillie's narrative shows how the successful survivor learns to work out his own way how to keep his sister calm and find a way out of the tides. Flynn rigs a sail from his shirt, and the children eventually make their way home. Based on a true incident, the novel offers a harrowing look at survival without losing sight of the protagonist's character. Fans of The Cay and The Red Badge of Courage should be equally taken with this well-crafted yarn. Ages 8-12. Cockawun and Cockatoo by Christobel Mattingley pb ec 50c….Cockawun and Cockatoo are given to Arthur to rear after his uncle rescues them as nestlings. Rescued from the building site of Canberra's first Parliament House, two fledgling cockatoos move in with Arthur and his family. Naughty Cockawun survives threats of banishment, and stays with young Arthur, his friend for life. A moving tale for the end of the century inspired by a true story.This is a great book, it's very Australian. It was pretty sad in many ways but honest and sweet, a simple story of a boy and his Cockatoo and their life story. Definitely worth reading. The Grey Family by Noel Streatfeild hb wdj ec $1…My mum has read all of the “family” books written by Noel Streatfeild and we have enjoyed them all, with many memories left to savour! Ages 7+ A Likely Lad by  Gillian Avery pb ec $1…Avery ( Maria Escapes ; Maria's Italian Spring ) visits turn-of-the-century England in this flavourful historical novel. Trying to mould his son into the successful entrepreneur he himself wanted to be, Manchester shopkeeper Alfred Overs only succeeds in driving Willy deeper into his beloved books. When Willy eventually escapes the oppression of home, he learns the secret history of his father's fierce determination, and father and son are finally able to see eye-to-eye. Buoyant characters bring to life an enjoyably predictable plot. Avery plumbs an often overlooked opportunity for depth in fashioning Willy's parents as both complex and likably fallible. Their die-hard need to keep up appearances adds poignancy--even from a child's perspective--to a very well-earned father-son reconciliation. Illustrations not seen . Ages 8-12.  Monsters In The Sand by David Harris pb *as new* $3…It begins with the telegram…TO THE BRITISH EMBASSY, CONSTANTINOPLE……….“Layard alive. Found crawling among beggars near gates of Baghdad. More dead than alive. Walked barefoot out of desert. Raving about Nineveh, night battle, hostages. Has vital information from Persian wars.

All his life, Austen Layard has dreamt of unearthing the fabled ancient city of Nineveh, which lies buried under the sands of the Middle East. And now as he battles corrupt warlords and races against time, at any moment his dream could become a nightmare. MONStERS IN tHE SAND is a gripping adventure story that will inspire readers to dig into the intriguing past of today's war torn Iraq. Ages 12+ The City in The Sand #2 of Children In The Valley Series)  by Jackie French pb ec $1…These are set many years in the future. As far as the people of the Valley know, they are the only ones left in the world. The only people who leave the safety of the Valley are the Collectors, who hunt for metal or new plants in the world outside - except for two children, Possum, from the House of the Three Jasmines, and Mopoke of Iron Fist, with their companion the crippled collector, Desert Wind.The Valley in these books is based on the valley we live in here - but hundreds of years in the future.Mopoke and Possum aren't based on anyone in particular,..though they do have hints of my son Edward and Victoria Clutterbuck's (the illustrator’s) daughter Celine. But I think both would be insulted if they thought either character was based on them. I don't see myself as Desert Wind.

The Well-Trained Mind: A Guide to Classical Education at Home by Susan Wise Bauer hb wdj *as new* $5…The Well-Trained Mind will instruct you, step by step, on how to give your child an academically rigorous, comprehensive education from preschool through high school―one that will train him or her to read, to think, to understand, to be well-rounded and curious about learning. Veteran home educators Susan Wise Bauer and Jessie Wise outline the classical pattern of education called the trivium, which organises learning around the maturing capacity of the child’s mind and comprises three stages: the elementary school “grammar stage,” when the building blocks of information are absorbed through memorisation and rules; the middle school “logic stage,” in which the student begins to think more analytically; and the high-school “rhetoric stage,” where the student learns to write and speak with force and originality. Using this theory as your model, you’ll be able to instruct your child―whether full-time or as a supplement to classroom education―in all levels of reading, writing, history, geography, mathematics, science, foreign languages, rhetoric, logic, art, and music, regardless of your own aptitude in those subjects. Thousands of parents and teachers have already used the detailed book lists and methods described in The Well-Trained Mind to create a truly superior education for the children in their care. This extensively revised fourth edition contains completely updated curricula and book lists, links to an entirely new set of online resources, new material on teaching children with learning challenges, cutting-edge math and sciences recommendations, answers to common questions about home education, and advice on practical matters such as standardised testing, working with your local school board, designing a high-school program, preparing transcripts, and applying to colleges. You do have control over what and how your child learns. The Well-Trained Mind will give you the tools you’ll need to teach your child with confidence and success. Excellent resources just the lists alone are worth the money! The Dolphin Rider and other Greek Myths by Bernard Evslin pb ec 50c…….“The Dolphin Rider” is Arion, who lives in Corinth, a city near the sea. He longs to go on great adventures, but an oracle warns that if he embarks on a voyage, he will never return. When Apollo, the god of music, gives Arion a golden lyre for his twentieth birthday, Arion ignores the oracle’s words and sets sail for Sicily. Everyone falls in love with his singing, and great treasures are heaped on him, but Arion is forced to contend with an unexpected foe: man’s greed.“The Gift of Fire” introduces Prometheus, the young giant who fears no one, including Zeus, mighty ruler of gods and men. However, when Prometheus vows to bring his precious gift to every cave in the land, he makes multiple deadly enemies.This collection also features stories about Narcissus, destined to fall in love with his own beautiful reflection; King Midas, who loves only gold; Cupid, who must suffer the consequences when he is struck down by love; and the fatally curious Pandora. A soft (not too psychologically disturbing for young ones) entry into the rich world of Evslin's poetic retellings of the old myths. Ages 8+ Zeus of the Skyby Doris Gates pb 50c.....Zeus Lord of the Sky was a very interesting book because it told of many of his travels on Earth, and three other stories told of Thesus and the Minotaur, Daedalus and Icarus, and Dionysus: God of the Vine.  Treasures of Weatherby by Zelpha Keatley Snyder pbec….50c.Harleigh J.

Ages 10+ A Hundred Million Francs by Paul Berna pb gc $1….Here is a vivid picture of a group of children as alive and unforgettable as the Dead End Kids, as Emil and his detectives, as William, which conjures up the very atmosphere of a Parisian suburb, a working-class district at the end of the Metro line . It is an exciting, original, unpredictable, and at times very moving story. It centres round a rickety wooden bogey shaped like a horse, favourite plaything of Gaby and his gang (Marion, befriended stray dogs; Criquet the African boy; little Bonbon, valiantly holding his own against his older playfellows, and the rest) - who spend all their spare time coasting on it down la rue des Petits-Pauvres.

There is also basic information on tangrams and how they work. A section towards the back talks about the more arcane mathematical properties of tangrams, someone who loves math will probably be very happy with that section. Mother Teresa Come Be My Light edited by Brian Kolodiejchuk hb ec $2….Come Be My Light is the collection of Mother Teresa’s private letters to and from her spiritual directors before, during and after her ‘call within a call’, to leave one religious order and found a new one dedicated especially—at least initially—to the most destitute in the slums of Calcutta, India. Reading these letters is a unique, surprising and sobering experience. Tracing the course of Mother’s life from her quintessential call (1946) to her death (1997) through this spiritual dessert is inspiring. Her own mission was always in response to Jesus’ cry from the cross, “I thirst!” – not for liquid refreshment but for love of those He came to save.  You will be moved time and again, amazed and awed by scarcely imaginable depths of holiness, beyond even what you can imagine ever hoping to emulate. Sometimes that you may lament your own spiritual shortcomings, but then think, if Mother Teresa—a human creature who considered herself small and worthless—is so loving, generous and good, what must Our God be like?! Praise be to Him! Worth the read…. 1066 And All That by W.C. Sellar and R. J. Yeatman pb ec $2….One of the most well-loved and best-selling British humour titles of all time  "Canute began by being a Bad King on the advice of his Courtiers, who informed him (owing to a misunderstanding of the Rule Britannia) that the King of England was entitled to sit on the sea without getting wet." This humorous "history" is a book that has itself become part of the UK's history. The authors made the claim that "All the History you can remember is in the Book," and, for most Brits, they were probably right. But it is their own unique interpretation of events that has made the book a classic; an uproarious satire on textbook history and a population's confused recollections of it.A short and amusing volume of all the English history you will ever need to remember, and a clever dig at how history used to be taught in schools. The more up you are on your English history, the more you will appreciate and enjoy it. Some of the one liners are very funny. You will  laugh out loud lots, so beware of reading it in public places. Highly recommended. Ages 1-+ The Complete Stories of Lewis Carroll includes: Alice’s Adventure in Wonderland; Through the Looking Glass; A Wonderland Miscellany; Bruno’s Revenge, and Others Stories; Sylvie and Bruno; Sylvie and Bruno Concluded; The Hunting of Snark; Original Games and Puzzles; pb ec 790pgs $5…. Wonderful fancy and imaginative stories fit for anyone and everyone. Very fun and well-written stories and intermingled poetry.The stories of Lewis Carroll, pseudonym of Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (1832-1898) are a delight to read at any age and the enduring appeal of `Alice's Adventures in Wonderland' (1865) have captivated readers around the world since its publication. Carroll has the amazing gift of seeing the world around him as through the eyes of a child and his characters interact directly upon the child's imagination and appeals to our sense of adventure. In fact, one can't help but be absorbed into the fantasy world he creates, without the usual process of introducing morals and `lessons' as so many Victorian authors felt the need to do.  Suleiman The Elephant by Margret Rettich hb wdj ec (long picture book)$5…In 1551, a royal wedding took place in Spain between Max, the son of King Ferdinand the First of Austria, to Maria, the daughter of Emperor Charles the Fifth. Max was a little preoccupied during the ceremony. He couldn't take his eyes of one of the wedding presents an elephant. He named the beast Suleiman, after the Turkish sultan who was trying to overthrow the city of Vienna. Max and Maria tried to return to Vienna, when their ships were attacked by pirates. The sudden appearance of the elephant frightened the attackers away. From Genoa, Max and Maria journeyed by land, and everywhere the newlyweds went they were greeted by crowds and celebrations. When at last they reached Vienna, they learned that the Viennese themselves had fought off the Turks. Emperor Maximilian the Second and his wife Maria went on to have 16 children. All of this is based on an historical incident, and there are inns along the path they took that are named for Suleiman. Even if it weren't true, Rettich's humorous telling is engaging, as are her festive watercolours, in rich russets, wine reds and medieval tones of grey.  Ages 8+ Young Explorer series: Exploring Creation with human Anatomy and Physiology by Jeannie Fulbright hb ec $25…..Finally!
