The don't miss, laugh-out-loud Christmas favorite! The Herdmans are the worst kids in the history of the world. They lie, steal, smoke cigars, swear, and hit little kids. So no one is prepared when this outlaw family invades church one Sunday and decides to take over the annual Christmas pageant. None of the Herdmans has ever heard the Christmas story before. Their interpretation of the tale—the Wise Men are a bunch of dirty spies and Herod needs a good beating--has a lot of people up in arms. But it will make this year's pageant the most unusual anyone has seen and, just possibly, the best one ever. As a reviewer commented: "In the end, this is not just a funny book, but a powerful story of redemption. Through most of the book, I can't stop laughing, but by the end I am always reading through tears, even after having read it eleven times." Anita Silvey, in her guidebook Children's Books and Their Creators, agreed: "The book is great fun and continues to be enjoyed by readers each holiday season."

Cooper's grandfather gives him and his little sister, Carly, deeds to square inches of land in the Yukon. Carly uses them to invent her own imaginary kingdom of Inchland—far away from the silence of their home, where their single mother stays in bed all day. When their mom comes out of her season of sadness bursting with sometimes frightening energy, Carly retreats into Inchland, while sixth-grader Cooper tries to control the chaos. But can Cooper really keep Carly—and himself—safe? In One Square Inch, Claudia Mills weaves a story that is "Believable and deeply moving" (Publishers Weekly).

When you devote your life to raising two children and teaching hundreds of students, you dish out a lot of love. You give unselfishly. It feels good, albeit stressful, but you wouldn’t trade it for the world. There isn’t anything you wouldn’t do for these children, these adolescents, these young adults. Their joy is your joy. And after 19 years, you feel happy. Why wouldn’t you? You are making a difference in the lives of so many. Then one day you realize that while you have been busy shaping the lives of so many, you’ve only been dreaming of the life you really want. It’s not until that day, when something unexpected happens, when you find you've been living an amazing story all along, when you find self-love, that you really wake up and start living. A collection of short stories, journal entries, tributes to teachers, poems, and blog posts; the lessons on these pages come from children, students, and teachers I’ve had the opportunity to know, teach, learn from, and love.

It was a hot humid day and as Deal looked down at the flower covered coffin he could feel the sweat running down his forehead and temples. All the while wishing the minister would hurry and end the service. Deal hates funerals and does everything he can to avoid them including this one, his mother's funeral. Life didn't turn out the way Deal expected. His life is in shambles. Something in his past is deeply embedded in his soul that makes him unable to cope with everyday life. Most people reminisce about a time when they were young, but Deal is obsessed with it. It's his escape from reality. After the funeral at his mother's home he drifts into a deep sleep. It all comes back, all the adventures he and Benny had the year he turned eleven and Benny turned nine, back when life was so much simpler. The story is an amusing account of Deal and Benny's adventures, trials and tribulations filled with plenty of nostalgia to remind the reader about the simple life of the 1950's before the onslaught of technology.

Best Movie Year Ever

Movie. Year. Ever. is the story of not just how these movies were made, but how they re-made our own vision of the world.

From a veteran culture writer and modern movie expert, a celebration and analysis of the movies of 1999—“a terrifically fun snapshot of American film culture on the brink of the Millennium….An absolute must for any movie-lover or pop-culture nut” (Gillian Flynn). In 1999, Hollywood as we know it exploded: Fight Club. The Matrix. Office Space. Election. The Blair Witch Project. The Sixth Sense. Being John Malkovich. Star Wars: The Phantom Menace. American Beauty. The Virgin Suicides. Boys Don’t Cry. The Best Man. Three Kings. Magnolia. Those are just some of the landmark titles released in a dizzying movie year, one in which a group of daring filmmakers and performers pushed cinema to new limits—and took audiences along for the ride. Freed from the restraints of budget, technology, or even taste, they produced a slew of classics that took on every topic imaginable, from sex to violence to the end of the world. The result was a highly unruly, deeply influential set of films that would not only change filmmaking, but also give us our first glimpse of the coming twenty-first century. It was a watershed moment that also produced The Sopranos; Apple’s AirPort; Wi-Fi; and Netflix’s unlimited DVD rentals. “A spirited celebration of the year’s movies” (Kirkus Reviews), Best. Movie. Year. Ever. is the story of not just how these movies were made, but how they re-made our own vision of the world. It features more than 130 new and exclusive interviews with such directors and actors as Reese Witherspoon, Edward Norton, Steven Soderbergh, Sofia Coppola, David Fincher, Nia Long, Matthew Broderick, Taye Diggs, M. Night Shyamalan, David O. Russell, James Van Der Beek, Kirsten Dunst, the Blair Witch kids, the Office Space dudes, the guy who played Jar-Jar Binks, and dozens more. It’s “the complete portrait of what it was like to spend a year inside a movie theater at the best possible moment in time” (Chuck Klosterman).
