Beetle-browed, nearly bald, with a head that rode his collarbones like a bowling ball returning on rails, his waist size more than half his five-foot, eight-inch height, Two Ton Tony Galento resembled, according to Collier´s magazine writer Jack Miley, ´´a taxi driving away with its top down.´´ By all measures he stood no chance when he stepped into the ring against the Brown Bomber, Joe Louis, the finest heavyweight of his generation. But in Yankee Stadium on a June night in 1939 he entered the record books as one of the few men to put the great Louis down. For two splendid seconds he stood on the mat as the Joe Louis lay before him, champ of the world, the toughest man alive, the mythical hero of a nation little more than a year away from war. ´´I´ll moida da bum,´´ he had predicted. And though Louis was no bum, Galento was almost as good as his word. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Kiff VandenHeuvel.

This true story is for anyone whose plans have veered alarmingly off-piste. It will make you laugh. It might also make you cry. Jennifer Gardner quickly discovers that going to Hong Kong to live a beautiful and rich new expatriate life is, as the Chinese proverb says, like looking for ivory in a dog´s mouth. Her new home, unlike those of her favorite authors, is not Tuscany or Provence. Neither is it toddler-free. She should have seen it coming, really. Enduring extreme heat, isolation, and strange expatriates turns out as easy as a snake trying to swallow an elephant. Jen´s husband has work problems, and the local food, throngs, and hospital all intimidate. Jen´s cheery resolve and her health, waver. Then disasters strike. But with them come surprises. Happiness - and hope - hide everywhere. Who can resist a Chinese opera loving taxi driver with eyebrows like blackbird´s wings, or dreams that really happen, or an oasis delivered to one´s door? Or befriending a wise and magisterial woman, who can kill a rat with one stamp of her foot? Due to Foreseen Circumstances celebrates the treasures awaiting us in life´s toughest seasons. 1.

Kenstibec was genetically engineered to build a new world, but the apocalypse forced a career change. These days he drives a taxi instead. A fast-paced, droll and disturbing novel, Barricade is a savage road trip across the dystopian landscape of post-apocalypse Britain; narrated by the cold-blooded yet magnetic antihero, Kenstibec. Kenstibec is a member of the ´´Ficial´´ race, a breed of merciless super-humans. Their war on humanity has left Britain a wasteland, where Ficials hide in barricaded cities, besieged by tribes of human survivors. Originally optimised for construction, Kenstibec earns his keep as a taxi driver, running any Ficial who will pay from one surrounded city to another. The trips are always eventful, but this will be his toughest yet. His fare is a narcissistic journalist who´s touchy about her luggage. His human guide is constantly plotting to kill him. And that´s just the start of his troubles. On his journey he encounters 10-foot killer rats, a mutant king with a TV fixation, a drug-crazed army, and even the creator of the Ficial race. He also finds time to uncover a terrible plot to destroy his species for good - and humanity, too. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Rupert Degas.

Like the other Sasek classics, this is a facsimile edition of the original book. The brilliant, vibrant illustrations have been meticulously preserved, remaining true to his vision more than 40 years later. Facts have been updated for the 21st-century, appearing on a ´´This is . . . Today´´ page at the back of the book. These charming illustrations, coupled with Sasek´s witty, playful narrative, make for a perfect souvenir that will delight both children and their parents, many of whom will remember the series from their own childhoods. This is Hong Kong, first published in 1965, captures the enchantment and the contrasts of Hong Kong in the sixties. Roaring jets bring in the tourists; bamboo rickshaws taxi them through exotic streets fragrant with incense, roasting chestnuts, and honey-glazed Peking duck. Sasek shows you the sweeping panorama of gleaming Kowloon Bay framed by misty mountain ridges, then moves in for close-ups of laborers and hawkers, refugees from the mainland, and sailors of flame-red junks, and the strange ´´water people´´ who, it is said, never set foot on dry land.
