Houghton Mifflin Magrittes Marvelous Hat

Everything we see hides another thing, we always want to see what is hidden by what we see. ?Rene Magritte D.B. Johnson writes and illustrates the surreal story of famous surrealist painter Rene Magritte and his very mysterious (and mischie...vous!) hat. While the art reflects some of Magrittes own work, the text sets readers on a fun and accessible path to learning about the simpler concepts behind Mr. Magrittes work. This delightful picture book captures the playfulness and the wonderment of surrealist art. Four transparent pages add yet another level of surrealism to the illustrations as pictures can be altered with the turn of a page.

Looking Back: A Book of Memories I would like to introduce you to this book. It has no plot. It is about moments, memories, fragme...nts, falsehoods, and fantasies. It is about things that happened, which caused other things to happen, so that eventually stories emerged. Children as well as adults often ask Lois Lowry where the ideas for her stories came from. In this fascinating, moving autobiography, the Newbery Medalist answers this and many other questions. Her writing often transports readers into her own world. She explores her rich history through family pictures, memories, and recollections of childhood friends. She details pivotal moments that affected her life, inspired her writing, and that magically evolved into rich and wonderful stories that one is reluctant to put down. Lowry fans, and anyone interested in the writing process, will tremendously enjoy this poignant trip through a remarkable writers past.

People call it ?The Ghost of the Mountain,? for those who live among snow leopards almost never see one. Beautiful spotted coats c...onceal these elusive cats in their rocky, high-altitude habitat?a place where temperatures are often cold enough to freeze human tears. A thick, long tail for balance helps snow leopards spring at their prey from great distances?prey that is often three times its own size. Slinking along the Mongolian mountain ridges, the snow leopards are invisible?and almost impossible to study. But that doesn?t deter scientist Tom McCarthy, Conservation Director of the Seattle-based Snow Leopard Trust, or his many colleagues from dedicating their lives? work to the study and protection of this seldom-seen creature. And it doesn?t stop Sy Montgomery and Nic Bishop from packing their bags in order to join Tom on a trek to Mongolia, where they hope to learn more about this magical cat, a cat who doesn?t give up its secrets easily. It will take endurance and persistence to climb the dusty mountain trails, hope of a snow leopard sighting rising and falling with each new summit. It will take practice and experience to lay humane leghold snares, collect scat samples, and set up motion-triggered cameras. It will take patience, focus?and yes, love?to dedicate a lifetime learning more about this little-understood creature. But that?s the only way the Snow Leopard Trust can protect their charges, before the snow leopard truly becomes nothing but a ghost of the mountain. With a dazzling, as-it-happens narrative and spectacular photographs, Sy Montgomery and Nic Bishop bring Mongolia up close for readers everywhere.
