♥ Book Title : The Stolen Lake
☯ Full Synopsis : "Readers who have followed Dido Twite’s escapades in BLACK HEARTS IN BATTERSEA and NIGHTBIRDS ON NANTUCKET will welcome her return in her wildest adventure yet. Now back in print, THE CUCKOO TREE and THE STOLEN LAKE continue the Wolves Chronicles, the exhilarating and imaginative series that stemmed from Joan Aiken’s classic THE WOLVES OF WILLOUGHBY CHASE. A dazzling piece of dramatic, snowballing adventure, THE STOLEN LAKE is full of fantastical details: revolving palaces, witches who are also court dressmakers, an apocalyptic volcanic eruption, and an infernal country with a noticeable lack of female children. On her way back to London aboard the British man-of-war Thrush, twelve-year-old Dido Twite finds herself and the crew summoned to the aid of the tyrannical queen of New Cumbria. A neighboring king has stolen the queen’s lake and is holding it for ransom, and it’s up to Dido and the crew to face fire, flood, execution, and wild beasts to get the lake back — or else."Article| Joan Aiken| Statement ..."

This #1 New York Times bestselling, modern classic in which boys are forced to dig holes day in and day out is now available with a splashy new look. Stanley Yelnats is under a curse. A curse that began with his no-good-dirty-rotten-pig-stealing-great-great-grandfather and has since followed generations of Yelnatses. Now Stanley has been unjustly sent to a boys’ detention center, Camp Green Lake, where the boys build character by spending all day, every day digging holes exactly five feet wide and five feet deep. There is no lake at Camp Green Lake. But there are an awful lot of holes. It doesn’t take long for Stanley to realize there’s more than character improvement going on at Camp Green Lake.

☯ Full Synopsis : "It has long been a government secret in the UK that Manchester is the home of man made weather. In neighbouring Salford, cloud machines are manufactured, and their owners are registered and certificated. Cirrus Cumulus and Percival White are two respectable, certified cloud machine operators, working together on a machine called the Nimbus. Down on the ground, they share a home in the Lancashire village of Slaidburn. Cirrus' reserved nature is perfectly partnered with Percival's rather bawdy behaviour. Operating out of Wythenshawe Weather Centre, they make a great team, taking on search and rescue, fundraising, foreign aid, and some more unusual projects. As crew of the Nimbus, they are occasionally called upon to fight criminal cloud activity. Other weather tasks are of vital importance, while some are just bizarre. In this collection of short stories, the crew of the Nimbus weaves magic in the sky but also in the hearts of colleagues and friends alike."Article| A. L. Smith| Statement ..."
