MASTER BOOK OF HUMOROUS ILLUSTRATIONS is life in America, many years ago. Work was hard. Life was simple. Laughter was free. Story tellers were more numerous then. Since there weren't any TV's or movie houses, people flocked to hear good orators. Whether given by a preacher, a politician, or a grandstand speaker at a county fair, their "waxing eloquence" usually included funny stories. People liked to laugh...they still do. Our parents and grandparents grew up with this type of humor. They'll be glad to see it again. I'm only 49 and much of it made me chuckle. Some of it even makes me laugh out loud! Enjoy. Ken Alley

Thorpe, W[illiam] G[eorge]. Middle Temple Table Talk: With Some Talk About the Table Itself. London: Hutchinson & Co., 1894. xxiv, 376 pp. Reprinted 2004 by The Lawbook Exchange, Ltd. ISBN 1-58477-341-3. Cloth. $80. * Reprint of first edition. Thorpe [d.1902], a barrister and literary historian, was admitted to the Middle Temple in 1875. His book is a delightful miscellany of Middle Temple anecdotes, discussions of its official and unofficial customs, legal lore, literary history and other topics discussed socially among Templars. Interesting in itself, this book is equally valuable as a document of the Middle Temple's institutional character at the turn of the century.

“One of the greatest love stories I have ever heard played out right here, under this beautiful dome. But it was a secret. . . . Penny and Terry just wanted what so many people want—to express their love through marriage.” —Illinois Representative Ann Williams Under This Beautiful Dome tells the true story of journalist Terry Mutchler's secret five-year relationship with Penny Severns, an Illinois State Senator who mentored Barack Obama. Forced to engage in an elaborate ruse to keep their relationship a secret, the two women constantly fear discovery in their conservative town. Denied legal access to the altar, they face even greater hardships when Penny is diagnosed with cancer and begins undergoing treatment. Set in the political arena, Under This Beautiful Dome reminds us why the march to legalize same-sex marriage is both personal and political. This vivid, beautiful story paints an intimate portrait of a loving relationship and the vast impact gay marriage legislation has on couples and families in America today.

The Quest for the Penny Black Volume One of the Notting Hill Trilogy A comedy adventure set in London in 1974. A number of Londoners, with the help of clues which were contained in the diaries of a dishonest Equerry to Queen Victoria that hinted of some stolen penny black stamps hidden around London, discovered by an elderly eccentric widow of an eminent archaeologist, commence on a treasure hunt. The clues, as deciphered progressively by the lady, take her and a dysfunctional ex-merchant seaman lodger, plus a group of people, whom she thinks are private detectives (but are actually small-time gangsters) to the icons of London, including Tower Bridge, Hampstead Hospital, Albert Bridge, Highgate Cemetery and some churches, to mention a few... br> The search is hampered by the arrival of a big-time gangster whose interest in the matter is apparent. His efforts, however, are somewhat thwarted by the arrival of some mysterious minders, engaged by a man who owns much of Notting Hill and is a friend of the old lady.

Tis better to be born lucky than rich.... There are many ways to confront tragedy and hard times. Angela's Ashes, Frank McCourt's tragic--and ultimately uplifting--tale of how one man overcame adversity and found happiness in the New World is a compelling story that has touched thousands of readers. It's a Long Way from Penny Apples is another view of the Irish experience, another man's journey out of the grinding poverty that held an entire generation of Irishmen in its thrall. Poverty and its ills can rend a family apart and ruin countless lives, leaving individuals on their own to find their way, if they can, out of that despair and on to a new life. But not every family gives in to defeat. Sometimes the choice is to not leave anyone behind... and out of that love, a family can come together, using all their talents to bring all of their loved ones to a better place. Bill Cullen was lucky enough to have one such family. Born and bred in the rough inner city slums of Summerhill in Dublin, Bill was one of fourteen children. Selling on the streets from the age of six, be it fruit, flowers, newspapers, Christmas decorations, football colors, or programs, was a means of putting food on the table for Bill and his family. He finished school at thirteen to go on the street fulltime. In 1956 Bill got a job as a messenger boy for a pound a week at Waldens Ford Dealer in Dublin. Through hard work and unrelenting determination, Bill was appointed director general of the company, in 1965. Bill went on to set up the Firlane Motor Company which became the biggest Ford dealership in Ireland. In 1986 he took over the troubled Renault car distribution franchise from Waterford Crystal. His turnaround of that company into what is now the Glencullen Group is a business success story-the group now has an annual turnover of 250 million. Bill Cullen's story is an account of incredible poverty and deprivation in the Dublin slums. It highlights the frustration of a father and mother feeling their relationship crumble as they fight to give their children a better life. It's a story of courage, joy, and happiness--of how a mother gave inspiration and values to her children, saying to them, "The best thing I can give you is the independence to stand on your own feet." It's a Long Way from Penny Apples is nothing less than a modern-day Horatio Alger story, told with humor and love; a heartwarming tale of redemption and overcoming adversity by one of the most famous self-made men in Ireland At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

Newboy hasn't spoken in three years. One morning he opened his mouth and nothing came out. He doesn't know why he stopped talking, but what he does know is that he's through with the state child-care system. In twelve years he's lived in eleven foster homes, and the Knoxes are the worst of the bunch. Now, with no voice, no family, and no exact plan, Newboy is running away for good. Living on the streets means danger and excitement around every corner, but the one thing Newboy never expected to find is a companion in the form of an old ventriloquist dummy lying in a Dumpster – a puppet with no hands, backward feet, and a chunk of its nose missing. Amazingly, this beat-up doll whom he dubs "Stinko" possesses a kind of magic that helps Newboy rediscover his ability to communicate. This is a fast-paced adventure about a runaway kid figuring out not just what he's searching for but also what he has to say. Finding Stinko is a 2008 Bank Street - Best Children's Book of the Year.
