The Adventures of Tintin (Les Aventures de Tintin) is a series of comic strips created by Belgian artist Herge the pen name of Geo...rges Remi (1907 1983). The series first appeared in French in Le Petit Vingtieme, a children's supplement to the Belgian newspaper Le Vingtieme Siecle on 10 January 1929. Set in a painstakingly researched world closely mirroring our own, Herge's Tintin series continues to be a favorite of readers and critics alike 80 years later.The hero of the series is Tintin, a young Belgian reporter. He is aided in his adventures from the beginning by his faithful fox terrier dog Snowy (Milou in French). Later, popular additions to the cast included the brash, cynical and grumpy Captain Haddock, the bright but hearing-impaired Professor Calculus (Professeur Tournesol) and other colorful supporting characters such as the incompetent detectives Thomson and Thompson (Dupond et Dupont). Herge himself features in several of the comics as a background character; as do his assistants in some instances.The success of the series saw the serialized strips collected into a series of albums (24 in all), spun into a successful magazine and adapted for film and theatre. The series is one of the most popular European comics of the 20th century, with translations published in over 50 languages and more than 200 million copies of the books sold to date. The comic strip series has long been admired for its clean, expressive drawings in Herge's signature ligne claire style. Engaging, well-researched plots straddle a variety of genres: swashbuckling adventures with elements of fantasy, mysteries, political thrillers, and science fiction. The stories within the Tintin series always feature slapstick humor, accompanied in later albums by sophisticated satire, and political and cultural commentary. read more

Follow Michael on this elaborate journey and find out how! The book offers a glimpse into the world of childhood, where imagination takes the child inside of the story; a picture book about unexpected friendship, about family and traditions and about the importance of imagination; an andventure for the "brand new readers" as well as for the "advanced beginners" ( beginner text- preK, K, 1st & 2nd grades / advanced text - older readers). 2-in-1 BOOK - for long term reading enjoyment! While the right-hand pages, containing sight-word sentences and illustrated new words, are designed for beginners, on the left-hand pages the story continues deeply into details for the advanced readers. The book is designed to provide long term enjoyable reading experiences for now and for the future: at first the young children would read just their designated pages, built using sight-words, and later, once their reading skills are improved, they will read and discover the entire story by themselves. Advanced readers could step in and share the reading experience with the "brand new readers" by taking turns reading out loud the advanced text and motivate the young readers to do the same reading their primer-text, built using sight-words. But this is just an option, not a requirement for finishing reading the book. The advanced-texts as well as the primer-texts are independent, so the book can be enjoyed by different reading level children by themselves from the beginning 'til the end. Sight word acquisition is an important building block in the construction of a child's ability to read. Once the children are able to read sight-words, they have access to up to 75% of what is printed in almost any piece of children's literature. Beyond sight-words, PixelPole's books are introducing few more new and illustrated words to build the vocabulary. Sharing the reading enjoyment is proved to increase reading development and start a lifetime of reading enjoyment. You will have a very special day reading PixelPole's books to your child and watching hers/his first steps into reading! read more

Deutsch, Barry

Welcome to Hereville, home of the first-ever wisecracking, adventure-loving, sword-wielding Orthodox Jewish heroine. A delightful ...mix of fantasy, adventure, cultural traditions, and preteen commotion, this fun, quirky graphic novel series will captivate middle-school readers with its exciting visuals and entertaining new heroine. Mirka is back, and she’s still the only sword-brandishing, monster-fighting Orthodox Jewish girl in town. Or so she thinks. When a misguided troll aims a meteor at the witch’s house, the witch grabs hold of the closest thing possible to transform the flying, flaming rock—and that would be Mirka’s hair. The meteor is changed, all right: it’s now Mirka’s identical twin. Doppelganger Mirka, vowing to be a better version of the real girl, sets out to charm all of Hereville, including Mirka’s own family. Our heroine challenges the meteor girl to a three-part contest . . . and the loser will be banished from Hereville forever! Praise for Hereville: How Mirka Met a Meteorite: STARRED REVIEWS "Deutsch has created a wonderful world in Mirka's insulated Orthodox village and continues to capture it adroitly... Mirka is unflinchingly likable because she is so tempestuous and inexact, and really, who can’t relate to that? This truly clever series is lots of fun." —Kirkus Reviews, starred review "The color illustrations are as crisp and clear as they come. The endlessly creative panel and perspective work adds visual interest and gives experienced graphic-novel readers plenty to savor. A well-crafted addition to a truly distinctive series." —School Library Journal, starred review "She's both a fish out of water (she dreams of being a sword-wielding dragon slayer) and committed to her Orthodox Jewish faith, family, and community. All of this makes her one of the most original and comically endearing heroines to come down the pike in a long time." —Publishers Weekly, starred review "The graphic novel format serves the quirky story well, with strong inks and a subdued palette that emphasize characters’ personalities and facial expressions as well as the tale’s action. As with Mirka’s first adventure, this volume brings diversity and wit to comics for young teens and tweens..." —The Horn Book Magazine "Deutsch is a masterful storyteller with both realistic kid patter and expressive cartoons—not only of Orthodox life but also of assorted trolls and other mostly benign fantasy creatures. A spunky adventure in kid-accessible truths revealed through the employment of fantasy." —Booklist Award 2013 Sydney Taylor Award - Notable Book, Older Readers Texas Library Association Maverick Graphic Novel 2014 list read more

The Oddbird is a children's story about how something so obvious, like a bird's egg, isn't really obvious at all. This wonderfully... illustrated book tells the story of Inna the oddbird, who finds herself among all the real and imaginary creatures of the forest. Let your imagination soar, because a surprise is around every corner! Jeremy J. Sales grew up in the woods of New England. His parents always wanted him to explore the outdoors and be creative with his time. "I'd take that cue to build a fort out back, climb trees, or go on a bike trip with friends. In all my adventures, the common theme was that what I anticipated to see rarely occurred. I saw a mayfly land on water, and expected it to get gobbled up, but nothing happened. No fish swam up and ate it. I felt a soft spot in the ground, peeled back the grass, and found it was a nest of bees! Each day it was something new, each day it was something different that I didn't expect. That's why I liked the idea of publishing this book: to give children a surprise they didn't see coming." Originally from New Mexico, Denise Dorn has lived the past ten years on a small island in the Pacific. She began painting at a young age and has always been inspired by the beauty that surrounds her. Sharing her art in the form of a children's story causes her imagination to burst with excitement. Publisher's website: read more

Henry is a little boy living in a small, wood-framed house along the road leading to the blackberry forest. And if there’s one Henry loves, it’s blackberries. Blackberry jam, blackberry candy, blackberry pies, blackberry pancakes, and blackberry tea—anything and everything with that delicious fruit in it is his favorite. When Mama says during breakfast to go and pick two buckets of blackberries so she can make two blackberry pies, he’s out the door leaving his canine companions Thunder and Lightnin’ behind and without paying attention to the last thing Mama says—the part about only picking berries in the yard. Why would he worry about that? Well, Henry gets to picking those delicious berries—and the pickings are good! He tries hard to make sure he fills up both buckets by singing himself a song: “Pick a berry! Eat a berry!” That way, he gets to eat some now AND have blackberry pie later. But after he’s picked ALL the ripe berries in and around the yard, one look in his buckets tells him the song didn’t really remain the same. It had gone from “Pick a berry! Eat a berry!” to “Pick a berry! Eat a berry! Eat a berry! Eat a berry!” Which is why his buckets are pretty much empty! Uh-oh. Mama can’t make blackberry pies without blackberries—he’s got to think fast. There are plenty of ripe blackberries in the forest. Problem is, sometimes when you get started doing something you love, you forget all about what you’re doing—or where you are… A lighthearted and spooky adventure all children can enjoy, Jeneen Poole’s debut children’s book is as exciting as it is instructional. Inspired by a rich, southern storytelling tradition, Thunder and Lightnin’ is the perfect teaching tool for parents as they build the importance of following instructions within their children. read more
