An enchanting novel for both adults and children, this is a must for any library. When Tiffany's sticky younger brother disappears its up to her to save him as no one else can, she must fill her grandmother's boots as the recently deceased matriarch of this sleepy farming village. Can Tiffany survive a trip to fairy land with only her trusty iron skillet and a band of little blue men who scuffle with everything and everyone? Has a life of making cheese and tickling carp prepared her for this adventure? An awesome book!

A great gift for anyone who loves or owns a corgi. A wordless graphic novel for all ages. Cuteness overload in this mytical world of fairies and corgis.

Biting the Sun

Imagine a society with no threat of death, where you could be either male or female and look anyway you wanted. What would morality be like, or family or love? Would any of it seem real? A luminous look at humanity without consequences, as technology transforms to meet our every need does it destroy what it is to be human? A dazzling book by one of sci-fi’s greatest women writers Tanith Lee and one of my favorites.

Final Exits: The Illustrated Encyclopedia of How We Die by Michael Largo
Final Exits: The Illustrated Encyclopedia of How We Die

cajunbliss, March 1, 2012

Vignettes on the unusual ways people have expired; sometimes tragic, sometimes funny, but always a very interesting look at the fragility of the human life. Did you know excess MSG in Chinese cuisine can kill you? Or that you should never have a tooth pick in your mouth while driving? Similar to the Darwin awards or the TV show myth busters, this book is entertaining and an out of the ordinary read.

The Best of James Herriot by James Herriot
The Best of James Herriot

cajunbliss, February 29, 2012

A delightful mix of stories, not only do you have a perspective of England during World War II, and a young man's search for love, but also his interactions as a newly trained country vet in a world of old school farming. The rendition of his own foibles along with the personalities of his patients make this book a winner. Charming and tender I can't recommend this it enough.
