Book Description
With unmitigated honesty, a touch of humor, and sensitive illustrations by Quentin Blake, Michael Rosen explores the experience of sadness in a way that resonates with us all. Sometimes I'm sad and I don’t know why. It's just a cloud that comes along and covers me up. Sad things happen to everyone, and sometimes people feel sad for no reason at all. What makes Michael Rosen sad is thinking about his son, Eddie, who died suddenly at the age of eighteen. In this book the author writes about his sadness, how it affects him, and some of the things he does to cope with it — like telling himself that everyone has sad stuff (not just him) and trying every day to do something he can be proud of. Expressively illustrated by the extraordinary Quentin Blake, this is a very personal story that speaks to everyone, from children to parents to grandparents, teachers to grief counselors. Whether or not you have known what it's like to feel deeply sad, the truth of this book will surely touch you.

Crossover Picturebooks

Crossover Picturebooks PDF Book Detail Author: Sandra L. Beckett
Publisher: Routledge
ISBN: 1136577017
Category : Literary Criticism
Languages : en
Pages : 414

Book Description
This book situates the picturebook genre within the widespread international phenomenon of crossover literature, examining an international corpus of picturebooks — including artists’ books, wordless picturebooks, and celebrity picturebooks — that appeal to readers of all ages. Focusing on contemporary picturebooks, Sandra Beckett shows that the picturebook has traditionally been seen as a children’s genre, but in the eyes of many authors, illustrators, and publishers, it is a narrative form that can address any and all age groups. Innovative graphics and formats as well as the creative, often complex dialogue between text and image provide multiple levels of meaning and invite readers of all ages to consider texts that are primarily marketed as children’s books. The interplay of text and image that distinguishes the picturebook from other forms of fiction and makes it a unique art form also makes it the ultimate crossover genre. Crossover picturebooks are often very complex texts that are challenging for adults as well as children. Many are characterized by difficult "adult" themes, genre blending, metafictive discourse, intertextuality, sophisticated graphics, and complex text-image interplay. Exciting experiments with new formats and techniques, as well as novel interactions with new media and technologies have made the picturebook one of the most vibrant and innovative contemporary literary genres, one that seems to know no boundaries. Crossover Picturebooks is a valuable addition to the study of a genre that is gaining increasing recognition and appreciation, and contributes significantly to the field of children’s literature as a whole.

Book Description
Hvordan blir man morder? Lorna Belling gjør hva som helst for å komme seg ut av et destruktivt ekteskap og faller for en ny mann – som lover henne gull og grønne skoger. Men som Lorna finner ut, kan det ofte være manglende samsvar mellom det man planlegger og den vendingen livet faktisk tar. Et tilfeldig foto på en mobil til en av klientene endrer alt for henne.På et offentlig bad i Brighton finner man liket av en kvinne, og politietterforsker Roy Grace tilkalles. Det som først ser ut som en ukomplisert sak med en åpenbar hovedmistenkt, viser seg til Grace sin store overraskelse å være alt annet enn akkurat det.Peter James er et av krimlitteraturens aller sterkeste navn.«James blir bare bedre og bedre. Han fortjener virkelig all suksessen han har hatt med denne førsteklasses serien.»Independent on Sunday
