"Iand#8217;m glad I was asked to be the ambassador for this book. I suspect you may find that something of the starry magic of this story stays with you, as it has with me." and#8212; Gregory Maguire

"A lovely storyand#8230;which covers a poetic, yearning philosophyand#8212;not the sort of fable that can be tacked down neatly at its four corners but rather reflections on what are real matters of consequence." and#8212; New York Times Book Review

Synopsis:

"In a hole in the ground, there lived a hobbit." So begins one of the most beloved and delightful tales in the English language. Set in the imaginary world of Middle-earth, at once a classic myth and a modern fairy tale, The Hobbit is one of literature's most enduring and well-loved novels.
 
Features cover art by J.R.R. Tolkien.

Synopsis:

Kids love fast food. And the fast food industry definitely loves kids. It couldnand#8217;t survive without them. Did you know that the biggest toy company in the world is McDonaldand#8217;s? Itand#8217;s true. In fact, one out of every three toys given to a child in the United States each year is from a fast food restaurant.

Not only has fast food reached into the toy industry, itand#8217;s moving into our schools. One out of every five public schools in the United States now serves brand name fast food. But do kids know what theyand#8217;re eating? Where do fast food hamburgers come from? And what makes those fries taste so good?

When Eric Schlosserand#8217;s best-selling book, Fast Food Nation, was published for adults in 2001, many called for his groundbreaking insight to be shared with young people. Now Schlosser, along with co-writer Charles Wilson, has investigated the subject further, uncovering new facts children need to know.

In Chew On This, they share with kids the fascinating and sometimes frightening truth about what lurks between those sesame seed buns, what a chicken and#8216;nuggetand#8217; really is, and how the fast food industry has been feeding off children for generations.

Featuring cover art by M. Wartella.

Synopsis:

In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit. Not a nasty, dirty, wet hole, filled with the ends of worms and an oozy smell, nor yet a dry, bare, sandy hole with nothing in it to sit down on or to eat: it was a hobbit-hole, and that means comfort.

Written for J.R.R. Tolkiens own children, The Hobbit met with instant critical acclaim when it was first published in 1937. Now recognized as a timeless classic, this introduction to the hobbit Bilbo Baggins, the wizard Gandalf, Gollum, and the spectacular world of Middle-earth recounts of the adventures of a reluctant hero, a powerful and dangerous ring, and the cruel dragon Smaug the Magnificent. The text in this 372-page paperback edition is based on that first published in Great Britain by Collins Modern Classics (1998), and includes a note on the text by Douglas A. Anderson (2001). Unforgettable!
