<div>In this beloved retelling of a legendary epic, young readers follow the adventures of Beowulf, Wiglaf, and Aelfhere, all of w...hom are endowed with a different magical ability. Far from a gift, their magic is actually a terrible burden. Beowulf?s superhuman strength makes him clumsy and even overpowers his own weapons. Aelfhere?s ability to read minds reveals disturbing truths. And Wiglaf?s life-like dreams foretell disaster. Welwyn Wilton Katz recounts the Beowulf legend from the point of view of Wiglaf, who hears about Beowulf?s many adventures: the seven-day swim in which he kills nine monsters, the battle in the mead hall with the wicked troll Grendel, the underwater struggle with the sea serpents, and the confrontation with Grendel's evil mother. Wiglaf doesn't just hear about adventure — he even participates in the final battle with a dragon. Laszlo Gal?s magnificent paintings, vividly reproduced in the pages of this rich book, are some of his finest work. Based on the art of the Vikings, they have the brilliant color and sinuous line of an illuminated manuscript.</DIV> Read More

<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

Wholesome food, well prepared, is a basic requirement in the lives of all of us, and the needs of the human body do not vary in th...is respect even when we go vacationing. The only real difference between appetites at home and in transit is that appetites on vacation usually are more robust. Appetites in trailers are no exception. Three meals a day can be well executed with a minimum of effort in the snug convenience of a trailer kitchen. Adventuring in a trailer opens opportunities for adventuring in new foods, to anyone who will explore the possibilities of this vagabond existence; and for summer camps and kitchenettes, these menus are equally convenient. Meals for the trailer need not be drab or uninteresting. Fresh food on every roadside stand, wholesome food in cans challenge the homemaker to feed her traveling companions interesting food, well prepared. Good food which is adequate and appetizing need not be elaborate or intricate to prepare. It is hoped that the martyr spirit dominating homemakers of an earlier day will not reappear in the trailer. Some of the same spirit of adventure that prompted the pioneer homemaker to feed her family well as she swayed across the continent in her covered wagon may still be required of todays trailer homemaker. New frontiers are hers without the same hardships and hazards. Today strailer homemaker, if she has taken a step in the fashionable direction of keeping up with the times, will dominate her meals not be dominated by them.<BR>(Typographical errors above are due to OCR software and don't occur in the book.)<BR><BR><B>About the Publisher</B> <BR><BR>Forgotten Books is a publisher of historical writings, such as: Philosophy, Classics, Science, Religion, History, Folklore and Mythology.<BR><BR>Forgotten Books' Classic Reprint Series utilizes the latest technology to regenerate facsimiles of historically important writings.

<div>This Caldecott Medal-winning picture book begins placidly (and familiarly) enough, with three pigs collecting materials and g...oing off to build houses of straw, sticks, and bricks. But the wolf?s huffing and puffing blows the first pig right out of the story . . . and into the realm of pure imagination. The transition signals the start of a freewheeling adventure with characteristic David Wiesner effects?cinematic flow, astonishing shifts of perspective, and sly humor, as well as episodes of flight.<br>Satisfying both as a story and as an exploration of the nature of story, The Three Pigs takes visual narrative to a new level. Dialogue balloons, text excerpts, and a wide variety of illustration styles guide the reader through a dazzling fantasy universe to the surprising and happy ending. Fans of Tuesday?s frogs and Sector 7?s clouds will be captivated by old friends?the Three Pigs of nursery fame and their companions?in a new guise.<br></div> Read More

Ella Mortimer is a bright nine-year-old girl who happens to have leukemia. Diagnosed at the age of six, the long hospital visits,... chemotherapy, blood transfusions, bouts of nausea, and lack of energy are taking a toll on Ella, who is a realist by nature. To cheer her up, her mom, Rebecca, takes Ella and her siblings, Chelsea and Miles, on a vacation to "Dreamcatchers," an aged amusement park that has seen better days. Once there, Ella meets an intriguing boy named Sebastian, who lives in the amusement park. With the help of this strange boy and his many wonderful adventures, Ella soon learns that there is more to life than just the facts and dreaming is every bit as important as the reality of her illness. Ella & Sebastian is based, in part, on the experience of Lydia, a girl who was diagnosed with leukemia at the age of six. Like Ella, Lydia relapsed before her first round of treatments was completed and at times certainly needed a distraction from this disease. We are delighted to announce that after five years of treatments, Lydia has been in remission for over three years and is now focusing on being a teenager. At Lydia's request, a portion of the proceeds of this book will go to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society to continue their efforts to find a cure for leukemia and other blood diseases, as well as the Children's Miracle Network, whose local organization was essential in helping Lydia to fulfill her dreams while she was being treated, because every child deserves to dream.
