Master Cat or, The Booted Cat(French: Le Chat Botté), commonly known in English as Puss in Boots, is a European literary fairy tale about a cat who uses trickery and deceit to gain power, wealth, and the hand of a princess in marriage for his penniless and low-born master. The tale opens with the third and youngest son of a miller receiving his inheritance - a cat. At first, the youngest son laments, as the eldest brother gains the mill, and the middle brother gets the mules. The feline is no ordinary cat, however, but one who requests and receives a pair of boots. Determined to make his master's fortune, the cat bags a rabbit in the forest and presents it to the king as a gift from his master, the fictional Marquis of Carabas. The cat continues making gifts of game to the king for several months. One day, the king decides to take a drive with his daughter... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Katie Haigh.

Be careful what you wish for because karma has a way of biting you in the butt. That's what Angela Panther's mother always said. And boy was she was right. When Angela first discovered her gift to gab with ghosts, she fought it tooth and nail. But the second she decided it wasn't so bad, tragedy hit and the universe decided to teach her a lesson. Now she's unable to chat with the other side and is crying out for a re-do. When her best friend Mel suspects her husband of cheating, she asks Angela to help her prove it. They concoct the perfect plan to get the goods on him, but to make it work they'll need help from Angela's mother, Fran. There's just one tiny little problem - Fran's dead. As the two best friends set out on a cheater-catching adventure, they hope Fran can use her celestial super powers to help, and prove that the bond between those who've crossed over with the ones they've left behind is never broken. 1.

It is somewhere close to midnight on the clock when the men who fought the Second World War will still be with us. I have met just a few of them, sometimes goading them to reveal their experiences, at other times being simply a conduit to the river of their memories, sensing, on occasion, a kind of urgency to get it out there, just so these adventures and tragedies will not be lost to future enquiring minds. Michael Veitch has always been a keen historian and aeroplane fanatic. From a young age, he was obsessed with air force pilots and their machines. And with his gift for chat, he has once again captured the memories of these brave, lucky men who survived the 'unsurvivable'. The risks of not returning from flying missions in WWII were extremely high, so the stories are uniquely heroic, almost unbelievable. But these were ordinary men in extraordinary situations, and, in this third collection from Michael Veitch, they record their stories for future generations. 1. Language: English.

From the pink ribbons to the chat rooms to the web sites that sell related accessories and stuffed animals, breast cancer has morphed from a disease into an experience. And at every step of the way, society tells women that this experience can teach them profound lessons, transform them into wiser, more insightful people, and maybe even give them a peek at the meaning of life.But what if it doesn't?Five Lessons I Didn't Learn from Breast Cancer is Shelley Lewis' thoroughly modern, slightly contrarian take on "doing" breast cancer in an epiphany-free zone, where the goal is simply to get through it and get the hell back to your life.Proving chemotherapy can eradicate everything except a sense of humor. Lewis shares her five strategies for coping, and then reveals the real, not-so-meaningful insights learned from breast cancer, including "If you honestly think breast cancer is a gift, you can't come to my birthday" and "Lie to yourself (it's sooo helpful)".A wonderful interweaving of the author's personal story, interviews with breast cancer survivors, and a sharp-eyed journalist's look at the breast cancer "community", Five Lessons is full of unconventional wisdom, unexpected advice, and hilarious observations about life inside the pink bubble. 1.
