A highly original, tragicomic novel as seen through Sirius, an extraordinary dog who helps his Jewish family escape from Germany to California, becomes a Hollywood star, and ultimately contributes to Hitler’s downfall. Levi, a fox terrier, lives with his family in a grand townhouse in Berlin. Each day he enjoys a walk through the neighborhood, where people greet him by name. But the year is 1938, and Berlin is no longer safe for Levi or the Liliencrons, his Jewish owners. They rename him Sirius, after the constellation, to protect him. One night, Nazi troops storm the city and begin to search houses. Sirius alerts the family, and they manage to flee to California. In his new home, Carl Liliencron becomes a chauffeur and Sirius befriends everyone from Humphrey Bogart and Cary Grant to Rita Hayworth and Jack Warner. He is renamed Hercules and becomes a canine movie star. Little does Sirius know that he’ll soon have to perform his most difficult acting role yet, when through a series of exceptional events as World War II unfolds, he winds up at the right hand of Hitler himself. Can Sirius help the German resistance, derail the Führer, and reunite with his family? Or is the cost of peace too high? With charisma, heart, and delightfully spry prose, Sirius is an enchanting fairy tale about love and humanity and a roving exploration of a momentous historical moment. Like My Dog Skip and The Artist, this feel-good novel will make you stand up and cheer.

Let your kids color the beloved Terry Treetop and the Lost Egg story. If your children love to get creative, they will enjoy this children's coloring book, and you will appreciate the educational aspect, too. In this coloring book, you can find the whole story of Terry Treetop and the Lost Egg so you and your children can enjoy the story as well as benefit from coloring advantages. Why is coloring so important? For many children, coloring is therapeutic. You can use coloring to help your children "vent" their feelings and frustrations, as well as other emotions through coloring. Children learn how to hold a pencil by first coloring with crayons. I think it's important for children to develop proper grip and control over a crayon to help them properly grip and control other writing instruments in the future. These basic coordination developing skills will last children a lifetime. Your children will have fun while developing motor skills at a very basic, simple level that they will expand on later in life. While completing a coloring page to the best of their ability and stay inside the lines at all costs, your children will develop concentration and focus skills. As they get older in school and have to complete math or spelling worksheets, they will be able to better focus without being bothered by the "buzz" around them in the classroom. In addition, this early exposure to boundaries in print will be a huge help when handwriting time comes around, and the child has to respect the boundaries of the preprinted handwriting lines on the paper.

Kathy Reichs—#1 New York Times bestselling author and producer of the FOX television hit Bones—returns with a riveting new novel set in Charlotte, North Carolina, featuring America’s favorite forensic anthropologist, Dr. Temperance Brennan. Just as 200,000 fans are pouring into town for Race Week, a body is found in a barrel of asphalt next to the Charlotte Motor Speedway. The next day, a NASCAR crew member comes to Temperance Brennan’s office at the Mecklenburg County Medical Examiner to share a devastating story. Twelve years earlier, Wayne Gamble’s sister, Cindi, then a high school senior and aspiring racer, disappeared along with her boyfriend, Cale Lovette. Lovette kept company with a group of right-wing extremists known as the Patriot Posse. Could the body be Cindi’s? Or Cale’s? At the time of their disappearance, the FBI joined the investigation, only to terminate it weeks later. Was there a cover-up? As Tempe juggles multiple theories, the discovery of a strange, deadly substance in the barrel alongside the body throws everything into question. Then an employee of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention goes missing during Race Week. Tempe can’t overlook the coincidence. Was this man using his lab chemicals for murder? Or is the explanation even more sinister? What other secrets lurk behind the festive veneer of Race Week? A turbocharged story of secrets and murder unfolds in this, the fourteenth thrilling novel in Reichs’s “cleverly plotted and expertly maintained series” (The New York Times Book Review). With the smash hit Bones about to enter its seventh season and in full syndication—and her most recent novel, Spider Bones, an instant New York Times bestseller—Kathy Reichs is at the top of her game.

A cura di Sergio CampaillaEdizione integrale«Uomini del mare! Uditemi! Io giuro su Dio, su queste onde che ci sono fedeli compagne e sulla mia anima, che non avrò bene sulla terra finché non avrò vendicato i miei fratelli uccisi da Wan Guld! Che le folgori incendino la mia nave; che le onde mi inghiottano assieme a voi; che i due corsari che dormono sotto queste acque, negli abissi del Gran Golfo, mi maledicano; che la mia anima sia dannata in eterno, se io non ucciderò Wan Guld e sterminerò la sua famiglia come egli ha distrutto la mia!». Con questo tremendo giuramento il conte di Ventimiglia, divenuto il Corsaro Nero, uno dei personaggi più suggestivi creati dalla fantasia di Salgari, promette di vendicare la propria famiglia annientata da un crudele nemico. Ma il destino vorrà che la fanciulla amata dal Corsaro Nero...«Una voce robusta, che aveva una specie di vibrazione metallica, s’alzò dal mare ed echeggiò fra le tenebre, lanciando queste parole minacciose: – Uomini del canotto! Alt! O vi mando a picco!...» Emilio Salgari(Verona 1862 – Torino 1911) compì l’apprendistato letterario collaborando a diversi giornali, come «La Nuova Arena», presso cui pubblicò anche i suoi primi racconti. Raggiunse un vastissimo successo di pubblico con una lunga serie di romanzi d’avventura ambientati in paesaggi esotici e centrati su eroi come Sandokan e il Corsaro Nero. Ma gli ultimi anni della sua vita furono tragici: le precarie condizioni economiche, la cattiva salute, la perdita progressiva dell’ispirazione narrativa e infine il ricovero della moglie in manicomio ridussero lo scrittore alla disperazione, fino al gesto drammatico con cui pose termine ai suoi giorni. Di Salgari la Newton Compton ha pubblicato Le Tigri di Mompracem, Il Corsaro Nero e Sandokan. I pirati della Malesia, e nella collana “I Mammut” Tutte le avventure di Sandokan.
