Bertie the Bravest Bat in the Belfry: Rosita Bird
What do you do when the voice inside tells you you´re wrong? You can´t do that? Or you say something silly and the other kids laugh at you? Ellie and Alyssa have been best friends since pre-school. One chatty, one shy, one adventurous, the other considered, one Australian, one with Chinese heritage, both supportive and giving. It´s easy together. Then they change schools. They have to rely on themselves. It´s hard. Ellie´s lost her heart. There´s her little sister and her busy working parents to deal with at home. She feels unsure about herself. Alyssa is going from lesson to activity to lesson. She does what she´s told, afraid to step out. One day, Ellie´s had enough. She wanders off during a museum visit and discovers a mythical golden Ayrebird exhibit. The myth claims that if you see an Ayrebird, it brings you luck! Perhaps if the girls can find the bird, they can find Ellie´s heart. They devise a plan. Armed with their backpacks, they set out on a camping trip in search of the Ayrebird. They encounter obstacles, setbacks and frightening creatures within the beauty of the Australian bushland. Being Brave is a novel and personal development guide for girls with themes on self-esteem and resilience.
Mary Brave Bird grew up fatherless in a one-room cabin, without running water or electricity, on the Rosebud Indian Reservation in South Dakota. Rebelling against the aimless drinking, punishing missionary school, narrow strictures for women, and violence and hopeless of reservation life, she joined the new movement of tribal pride sweeping Native American communities in the ´60s and ´70s. Mary eventually married Leonard Crow Dog, the American Indian Movement´s chief medicine man, who revived the sacred but outlawed Ghost Dance. Originally published in 1990, Lakota Woman was a national best seller and winner of the American Book Award. It is a unique document, unparalleled in American Indian literature, a story of death, of determination against all odds, of the cruelties perpetuated against American Indians, and of the Native American struggle for rights. Working with Richard Erdoes, one of the 20th century´s leading writers on Native American affairs, Brave Bird recounts her difficult upbringing and the path of her fascinating life. 1.

Cut from the same cloth of comedic adventure as The Princess Bride , A Confederacy of Dunces and Adventures of Huckleberry Finn , Queen of Birds is your ticket to ride to the legendary North Sea island of Bennington, year 1952. Upon arrival, you´ll meet Queen Pansy Ditch of Bennington, who needs a princess to serve as her royal heir, for Bennington is an island nation ruled at all times by women. And wonderful life is under such female rule until the unwed, childless (and damn rowdy) Queen Pansy, age 52, decides to enact an island-wide search for a lucky man willing to help produce an heir. It is a search that, as fated, is a spectacular failure until a young thief named Josey Certain arrives at the royal castle holding the key to the future of Bennington deep within his own fibs and riddles. To unearth such, the brave readers of this tale must first navigate the most cavalier of quests that, like the Queen herself, will be obnoxious to the end. With special appearances by: Walt Whitman, Queen Christina of Sweden, Gilbert the Coconut, Edith Piaf (maybe), a bear, a giant, mummies, bloodthirsty musical prodigies, the acquittal papers for Joan of Arc, theologian John Calvin, a lady pirate from Chile, a man who doesn´t age, three witches, King Arthur´s Stone (bought at estate sale), dancing bones atop a scary hill, a dancing gift shop worker (not scary), buried treasure, Helsinki, Finland, a famous Indian musician, a famous soup maker, a famous porridge maker, a frowning iris, and an island that can write letters, which is how this book will begin once you open it.

Los Angeles Times best sellerA spellbinding debut novel about the trailblazing Iranian poet Forugh Farrokhzad, who defied society´s expectations to find her voice and her destiny´´A complex and beautiful rendering of [a] vanished country and its scattered people, a reminder of the power and purpose of art, and an ode to female creativity under a patriarchy that repeatedly tries to snuff it out.´´ [The New York Times Book Review (Editors´ Choice)]All through her childhood in Tehran, Forugh Farrokhzad is told that Persian daughters should be quiet and modest. She is taught only to obey, but she always finds ways to rebel - gossiping with her sister among the fragrant roses of her mother´s walled garden, venturing to the forbidden rooftop to roughhouse with her three brothers, writing poems to impress her strict, disapproving father, and sneaking out to flirt with a teenage paramour over café glacé. During the summer of 1950, Forugh´s passion for poetry takes flight - and tradition seeks to clip her wings.Forced into a suffocating marriage, Forugh runs away and falls into an affair that fuels her desire to write and to achieve freedom and independence. Forugh´s poems are considered both scandalous and brilliant; she is heralded by some as a national treasure, vilified by others as a demon influenced by the West. She perseveres, finding love with a notorious filmmaker and living by her own rules - at enormous cost. But the power of her writing only grows stronger amid the upheaval of the Iranian revolution.Inspired by Forugh Farrokhzad´s verse, letters, films, and interviews - and including original translations of her poems - this haunting novel uses the lens of fiction to capture the tenacity, spirit, and conflicting desires of a brave woman who represents the birth of feminism in Iran - and who continues to inspire generations of women around the world.Praise for Song of a Captive B 1.
