The Comic Book Bandit is a bright, healthy, mischievous child named Jay. Mentored by his brilliant older brother, Ross, the bandit pulls off his first comic book heist at the age of four. As events unfold, he gradually finds himself to be alone out in a world where the only significant authority over his behavior turns out to be him and his fledgling and relatively ignorant conscience. Being an unattended child may be scary, but it is also immensely exciting. There is a rush that comes with boundless liberty. Not entirely free, but with stolen moments of freedom to explore life on his own, out and about in the pulsating city of Chicago, where the choices were breathtaking, our hero is captured by the undeniable realization, “I can do whatever I want so long as I don’t get caught.” The stories take place after the Second World War. Yes, the bandit faces the obstacles of grown-ups but cleverly discovers the slippery power of the believable lie. He creates a secret life of his own and shares an acceptable version with those he must account to: his mother, his father, his brother, his teachers, and his friends. Getting away with stuff starts to become second nature, at least until and when he creates a lie so big, with burden so weighty, its effects are at times overwhelming. The culmination of his struggles with the Great Bar Mitzvah Caper will have the reader riveted to each and every page. How could he? How does he? Will he or won’t he? Those are the questions. Come along for the ride. I promise you a child whose ingenious lies make him unlike any child you may have encountered. And beyond all that, he is a great little kid. 1

And not just any aliens—alien doughnuts from outer spastry, who will continue the abductions until people stop eating doughnuts! Although Arnie thinks this is a ridiculous story, he notices that everyone is treating him differently, as if he is an alien doughnut rather than just a doughnut-dog. And then Arnie gets abducted! Arnie must think fast in order to rescue his fellow doughnuts and the townspeople from the alien invaders. The slapstick shenanigans continue in this hilarious second book in Laurie Keller's Adventures of Arnie the Doughnut series. This title has Common Core connections. A Christy Ottaviano Book

An “instructive first-hand account of how Iraq’s insurgents were defeated” in the surge of 2007—written by a Combat Arms Battalion Commander who lived it (Publishers Weekly). In August 2006, the American war in Iraq was looking grim. Control of Al Anbar Province, the seat of the Sunni insurgency, was said to be irrevocably lost to the insurgents. Al Qaeda in Iraq had planted their flag in the provincial capital, Ramadi, declaring it the capital of their new “Islamic State of Iraq.” In January 2007, the 3rd Battalion, 69th Armored Regiment, deployed to Ramadi, spearheading a surge that would become the D-Day of the Global War on Terror. By mid-summer 2007, attacks in the province were down ninety percent. As the “awakening” swept through Iraq, it brought about the best security situation since 2003. The 3rd Battalion was the only unit to participate in this campaign from start to finish. Moreover, many of the US successes came directly from this unit’s work. Awakening Victory tells the story of this incredible campaign through the eyes of the 3rd Battalion commander. It describes the battalion’s actions, including incidents previously unknown to the public, but it is not merely another war story. The author uses the actions of his battalion to describe a paradigm shift, moving from a war of bombs and bullets to one of partnership and ideas.

Rodeo, located on the east shore of San Pablo Bay, was envisioned as the meatpacking center of the West when it was established by the Union Stockyard Company in 1890. That vision failed, but the town continued attracting residents for jobs at the nearby Hercules powder works, Selby smelter, and Oleum refinery. By the 1940s, a war-based industrial buildup made Rodeo’s population surge, and this was followed by a postwar boom in housing and retail construction. During these prosperous years, Rodeo was a regional hub for fishing and boating. Times have changed, but the images in these pages recall Rodeo’s early years—the marina, businesses and homes, schools, civic officials, and local industry, as well as the town’s celebrations, such as the Holy Ghost and Aquatic Festivals.

Spanish and American prospectors discovered gold, silver, and copper mines in southwestern New Mexico in the 1800s. This volume explores the further development of these mining operations into the early 1900s. During this time period, improvements in technology made mining profitable, and eastern corporations invested in New Mexico mines. World War I created a demand for copper, and this era saw the development of paternalistic company towns. Miners faced difficult and dangerous working conditions, but their lives improved compared to previous generations. Many of the towns and the people in southwestern New Mexico owed their livelihood, in whole or in part, to mining. Some of these places have disappeared entirely, some are ghost towns, and others are thriving communities.
