Love the illustrations!
This book has numerous illustrations that show nearly every nook and cranny of the musculoskeletal system and I was impressed with the variety of exercises they depict.
The Best Christmas Pageant Ever (Script)
Samuel French, Inc.
The Best Christmas Tale Ever!
Barbara Robinson has crafted a fantastic tale of the meaning of Christmas. In this 80 page book we come to fear and love the Herdmann clan, a gaggle of 6 kids that see the world their own way, and take it on in their own terms. They are just as likely to klonk a kid in the head as ignore them. They are the "closest thing to criminals that we knew." What does this have to do with Christmas? ...
Gruffalo (French Edition)
Great book for (almost) all ages
This book kept my husband's and my interest when our twin boys were 0-12 months - most other board books are pretty boring for an adult reader; this one is not. And when the boys were 0-12 months, if they got fussy while we were out of the house, the boys would love it when I would recite it from memory. Now that the boys are 18 months, they don't quite have the attention span to sit through the ...
The Count of Monte Cristo (Penguin Classics)
Alexandre Dumas père
READ THIS BOOK....NOW!!!!!
I have spent hundreds of dollars on this site and have never been provoked to write a review...until now. The Count of Monte Cristo has got to be one of the greatest books ever written. I'm telling you now, read this unabridged version, and it will change the way you look at fiction for the rest of your life. I promise. I'm an avid reader (I teach high school literature) and made it to my ...
Harold et le crayon rose
Doesn't get much better than this.
I think this is one of those books that every child should experience. It's picture based (as opposed to text based) so there's a delightful interactive element and the child can rather tell his own tell about Harold as together they follow the purple crayon from page to page...inviting you and your child into the book to explore. So simple, it's rather Zen. And lovely. Must, must, must for ...
The Forgotten Soldier: The Classic WWII Autobiography (Brassey's Commemorative Series WWII)
Sobbering and Balanced
Echos of Remarque's "All Quiet on the Western Front" - this book's actual accounts will leave the reader mentally drained. The graphic reality of combat on the Eastern front are jaw dropping. Combat experiences are conveyed expertly without self-praise nor self-loathing - just the facts and the struggle. Politics are abscent. The story shows a man's journey and his witness to the horrors of ...

Anthony Bourdain's Les Halles Cookbook: Strategies, Recipes, and Techniques of Classic Bistro Cooking
I would eat the pictures if I could!
When I have a serious piece of meat or an ingredient I want to show off and still manage to cook it so I can eat dinner, I reach for Les Halles cookbook by none other than Anthony Bourdain. I don't eat meat too often, I know he does and writes about it a lot, but when I do I like to treat it with respect and use it to its full potential, when I finally do indulge in it, I can think of a few other ...
Mastering the Art of French Cooking
ALFRED A. KNOPF
MUCH MORE THAN A COOKBOOK !
i didn't have any 'cooking' experience growing up,-- an aunt gave me 'better homes and gardens' cookbook for a wedding gift [in 1965], but try as i may, i never really had any thing turn out like i expected it should, perfectly cooked, beautiful to look at, and mouth watering taste. i always felt at a loss of what to fix, how to fix it,-- my children, AND grand children are now grown, but ...

Grammaton Press, LLC
A True Story of Courage and Faith Under Pressure
This is a story of a young girl who is one of Jehovah's Witnesses and is caught in the crosshairs of the Nazi oppression. She maintains her faith despite being separated from her parents and treated with cruelty. The type of brutal treatment that she received often equates with severe emotional trauma later in life. However, the power beyond what is normal kept her in balance. This power ...
Anne of the Island (LRS Large Print Heritage)
Lucy Maud Montgomery
LRS (Library Reproduction Service)
I have loved these books since Jr. High, when I identified with bookish, clumsy, often absentminded Anne. I, too, walked around with my head in the clouds! Although I never bought hair dye from a traveling gypsy, nor dyed my nose blue in an attempt to rid it of freckles, I have dumped an entire pan of cake batter into the oven while daydreaming about my future husband (at age 13!), spilled a full ...
Bon Appetit, Y'all: Recipes and Stories from Three Generations of Southern Cooking
Ten Speed Press
A gorgeous blend of French cuisine and Southern cooking...Coca Cola meeets Camembert.
Virginia Willis's Bon Appetit, Y'All is a magical blend of Southern charm and French cuisine. Virginia compiles three generations of Southern recipes from her grandmother Meme, her mama, and herself (trained at culinary schools in France, Virginia's recipes reflect traditional French cuisine in gratins, soufflés, confits, sprinklings of tarragon and pots de crème). Frequently, recipes will be ...
PLEASE re-publish the whole series in English PLEASE!
Anyone fortunate enough to first read these books while young (I was in my late teens), will very likely want to read and re-reread them as he/she gets older. I do, and simply cannot recommend them highly enough. One of the reviewers here states that Anne and Serge are born storytellers but is misinformed: Serge did indeed produce writings, but he was primarily a scientist and he provided ...

Mystery & Suspense Press
A Rare 5-Star
I read quite a number of thrillers, some with a touch of romance while some were straight suspense by different famous writiers. Glad to say FRENCH's Chasing Demons is one of the best written books I've ever read. Her writing is tight; the storyline flows making the read so pleasant and smooth. I also liked it she has short chapters giving us enough detail to bring us scene after scene without ...
Twenty Years After (Oxford World's Classics)
Alexandre Dumas père
Oxford University Press, USA
Maturity, Friendship, Adventure
Thoroughly entertaining, "Twenty Years After" is a fulfilling sequel to a classic swashbuckling masterpiece. Twenty Years have passed since D'Artagnan and the Musketeers triumphed over Cardinal Richelieu, preserved the Queen's honor, and brought justice upon the face of evil, Milady. The wave of time has carried the four friends down very different paths of life, and they have not been in ...
Jorge Luis Borges
French & European Publications Inc, 1991
Brilliant and subtle
I should have started reading Borges years ago. Better late than never, though. The theme of ambiguity permeates this book. It might be most blatant in 'The Form of the Sword' or 'The Garden of Forking Paths,' where a comment at the end of the story changes the meaning of all that went before. 'The Garden' also contains a symmetry of time and space, where diverging futures appear as a decision ...
William Morrow & Co
I love historial fiction, of any kind. I was stunned to see that there were no reviews on this book. I found this book years ago in a small town library. I will honestly tell you that I almost never read a book twice, but I have read this book about four times. I never get tired of it. It's rich in historical history regarding Napoleon, which at the time I wasn't interested in, but I soon ...
Chocolate and Zucchini: Daily Adventures in a Parisian Kitchen
Best cookbook I've read in a long time (& I'm a chef by trade). Have earmarked heaps of recipes. The gateau au yaourt was a big hit & I make the gougeres au cumin nearly every week. My friends son who is just about to turn 16 asked if I could make a batch of them for his birthday instead of a cake!!! High praise indeed. Would recomend it to anybody who likes a good read & if you like cooking you ...
Egmont Books Ltd
Such a lovely little book about mail. As a postal worker it's great to share what we do with our little family members. Also a very excellent teaching tool to discuss different occupations with young children.
