<div>Blending historical fact and classical myth, the author of Zorba the Greek and The Last Temptation of Christ transports the r...eader 3,000 years into the past, to a pivotal point in history: the final days before the ancient kingdom of Minoan Crete is to be conquered and supplanted by the emerging city-state of Athens. Translated by Theodora Vasils and Themi Vasils.<BR> <br> The familiar figures who peopled that ancient world -- King Minos, Theseus and Ariadne, the Minotaur, Diadalos and Ikaros -- fill the pages of this novel with lifelike immediacy.<BR> <br> Written originally for an Athenian youth periodical, <I>At the Palaces of Knossos</i> functions on several levels. Fundamentally, it is a gripping and vivid adventure story, recounted by one of this century's greatest storytellers, and peopled with freshly interpreted figures of classical Greek mythology. We see a new vision of the Minotaur, portrayed here as a bloated and sickly green monster, as much to be pitied as dreaded. And we see a grief-stricken and embittered Diadalos stomping on the homemade wax wings that have caused the drowning of his son, Ikaros.<BR> <br> On another level, <I>At the Palaces of Knossos</i> is an allegory of history, showing the supplanting of a primitive culture by a more modern civilization. Shifting the setting back and forth from Crete to Athens, Kazantzakis contrasts the languid, decaying life of the court of King Minos with the youth and vigor of the newly emerging Athens.<BR> <br> Protected by bronze swords, by ancient magic and ritual, and by ferocious-but-no-longer-invincible monsters, the kingdom of Crete represents the world that must perish if classical Greek civilization is to emerge into its golden age of reason and science. In the cataclysmic final scene in which the Minotaur is killed and King Minos's sumptuous palace burned, Kazantzakis dramatizes the death of the Bronze Age, with its monsters and totems, and the birth of the Age of Iron.</div> Read More

After years of exile at a small, far-distant pond, King Francis IV is back on the Ancient Throne Of Frogavia, The Royal Seat Of His Illustrious Ancestors. <br><br> While in exile, King Francis met and married a much younger beauty named Fiona. Now she is Queen Fiona and they have two lovely daughters, Princess Flora and Princess Fay who were both born at the Little Pond where their father was in exile. Then came the Brave Young Frogavians to find Their True King and return him to Frogavia which was in a state of unrest and unhappiness under the rule of The Pretender To The Throne, The Evil Dax Frogditch who with his followers, kept The Frogavian People in a grip of hardship and terror. King Francis dubs each of the young Frogavian rescuers' "Frog Knights" and they charge back to Frogavia with banners flying to oust - Frogditch and his gang forever. The waterlilies on Castle Pond had ceased to bloom under Frogditch's rule. Now, with the return of The True King and His Family, escorted by The Gallant Frog Knights, the Frogavian People rejoice and celebrate and the gorgeous waterlilies burst into an abundance of blossoms once again. <br><br> With harmony restored, one of The Knights, Sir Robert Ribbet goes to The King and asks for the hand of The King's older daughter, Princess Flora in marriage. For Robert has loved Flora since he first saw her. But, alas, Princess Flora longs for someone back at The Little Pond where she was born? She loves The Flute Player.

A renowned Priest/ Magician marries Princess Flora and The Flute Player in an ancient ceremony of The Old Frog Religion under the golden light of a full moon. Every citizen of Frogavia is invited to the wedding and the celebrations go on for days with dancing on the lilypads and frogsong echoing across Castle Pond. But the only one who is not rejoicing is Sir Robert Ribbet. He sits dejected alone and lost, for Princess Flora was his inspiration. Then he hears familiar voices through the reeds ? His friends Robin Froghood and Littlefrog (both also knighted for their work) are on another mission to 'help the poor and needy and continue the fight of good against evil'?

When Mr. Gingerbread notices demand for gumdrops he starts a business to sell them. Join him on his fun and educational adventure ...as he deals with entrepreneurship, economics, supply and demand, taxes, unions, running his business.<br><br>Candynomics is a rhyming story that introduces young readers to the business world. They will begin to gain a basic understanding of how commerce works and will begin to recognize that everything they see, even the lowly gumdrop, is a result of entrepreneurial initiative, and "behind the scenes" hard work. Colorful illustrations guide readers through an engaging story with two alternate endings. One ending presents an economic environment tending toward a more socialistic and interventionist landscape which illustrates the real effect that government has on economic prosperity. Ending two presents the theory behind a pro-capitalist and individualistic landscape where the entrepreneur has more freedom to operate his business in the way that he chooses.<br><br>The book was written not only for the enjoyment of the story, but also to provide a scenario through which parents can further discuss and initiate educational discussion on economics and business, a topic that impacts everyone every day. <br><br>The subject matter and delivery is excellent. Candynomics could be considered required reading for all children (and some adults). Read More

Twelve-year-old Percy Jackson is about to be kicked out of boarding school . . . again. No matter how hard he tries, he can't seem... to stay out of trouble. But can he really be expected to stand by and watch while a bully picks on his scrawny best friend? Or not defend himself against his pre-algebra teacher when she turns into a monster and tries to kill him? Of course, no one believes Percy about the monster incident; he's not even sure he believes himself.<br><br>Until the Minotaur chases him to summer camp.<br><br>Suddenly, mythical creatures seem to be walking straight out of the pages of Percy's Greek mythology textbook and into his life. The gods of Mount Olympus, he's coming to realize, are very much alive in the twenty-first century. And worse, he's angered a few of them: Zeus's master lightning bolt has been stolen, and Percy is the prime suspect.<br><br>Now Percy has just ten days to find and return Zeus's stolen property, and bring peace to a warring Mount Olympus. On a daring road trip from their summer camp in New York to the gates of the Underworld in Los Angeles, Percy and his friends?one a satyr and the other the demigod daughter of Athena?will face a host of enemies determined to stop them. To succeed on his quest, Percy will have to do more than catch the true thief: he must come to terms with the father who abandoned him; solve the riddle of the Oracle, which warns him of failure and betrayal by a friend; and unravel a treachery more powerful than the gods themselves.
