Description
John Steinbeck's masterpiece celebrates the spirit and courage of adolescence. Jody Tiflin has the urge for rebellion, but he also wants to be loved. In THE RED PONY, Jody begins to learn about adulthood - its pain, its responsibilities and its problems - through his acceptance of his father's gifts. First he is given a red pony, and later he is promised the colt of a bay mare. Yet both of these gifts bring him tragedy as well as joy, and Jody is taught not only the harsh lessons of life and death, but made painfully aware of the fallibility of adults.
Bibliography
Nobel Prize-winning author John Steinbeck is remembered as one of the greatest and best-loved American writers of the twentieth century. From September 2000 his complete works will be published by Penguin.

Jean Constantine D'Costa, storywriter, critic and teacher was born in January 1937 in Jamaica. She attended St. Hilda's and St. Hugh's High Schools and later studied at the University of West Indies. Later, she would pursue further studies at Oxford and Indiana Universities of West Indies and Hamilton College in the USA. As Professor of English at Hamilton College 1980-1989, she taught English 200, Creative Writing, The Tortured Sensibility, Old English, History of the English Language and Major Caribbean Writers.

D'Costa is also a well-established writer of children's books. Sprat Morrison, her first novel, captures the Jamaican atmosphere and speech rhythms with great precision and insight. Sprat Morrison has found a special place in Jamaican schools' curriculum and is used as prescribed text in literature in many high schools. Her work in linguistics, especially on Jamaican Creole, is also well known. Language in Exile, a work she co-authored with Barbara Lalla, tries to recapture the Creole speech of early Jamaican society by analyzing rare, 18th and 19th century documents in their sociohistorical context.

D'Costa has also copy-edited a number of books for the University Press of the University of the West Indies, as well as a historical novel of film maker Perry Henzell's, The Harder They Come which was written by Michael Thelwell. For many years she continued to write fiction and poetry for adults, adolescents and children.

Jean D'Costa is now retired and lives in Weston, Florida.

Description

If Mrs Tischbein had known the amazing adventures her son Emil would have in Berlin, she'd never have let him go.

Unfortunately, when his seven pounds goes missing on the train, Emil is determined to get it back - and when he teams up with the detectives he meets in Berlin, it's just the start of a marvellous money-retrieving adventure . . .

A classic and influential story, Emil and the Detectives remains an enthralling read.

From November 16th 2013, an exciting new adaptation of Emil and the Detectives will be playing at the National Theatre in London.

Bibliography
Erich Kastner was born in Dresden in 1899, the son of a saddle maker and a maidservant. He was drafted into the army in 1917, and his experiences there were to influence his later pacifism. He published Emil and the Detectives in 1928 to great success. A sequel, Emil and the Three Twins, appeared in 1933, but soon afterwards his books were labelled ""contrary to the German spirit"" and burned in public by the Nazis. He was interviewed by the Gestapo several times, but remained in Berlin until 1945, when he fled the city to avoid the Soviet assault. After the war he continued to write and remained committed to anti-war movements until his death in 1974.

Description
During the nineteenth century, European women of all countries and social classes experienced dramatic and enduring changes in their familial, working and political lives. However, the history of women at this time is not one of unmitigated progress - theirs was an uphill struggle, fraught with hindrances, hard work and economic downturns, and the increasing intrusion of the public into their innermost private and personal lives.

Breaking away from traditional categories, Rachel G. Fuchs and Victoria E. Thompson provide a sense of the variety and complexity of women's lives across national and regional boundaries, juxtaposing the experiences of women with the perceptions of their lives. Three themes unite this study:

- the tension between tradition and modernity
- the changing relationship between the community and individual
- the shifting boundaries between public and private

Dealing with individual women's lives within a large social and cultural context, Fuchs and Thompson demonstrate how strong and courageous women refused to live within the prescribed domestic roles - and how many became the modern women of the twentieth century.
