Greatest man in cedar hole

Cedar Hole is a foggy little town where only the grass seems able to thrive. Enter Robert J. Cutler, enigmatic, confident and relentlessly cheerful. Robert seems to be heading for great things - more than this town of hopeless washouts can offer him, certainly. However, he is devoted to Cedar Hole and determines to become its school's best student. Now meet Francis 'Spud' Pinkham, who is trying to stay as invisible as Robert is brilliant. Spud's nine terrifying elder sisters make his life a daily battle and he slips easily and willingly into the role of the school bully. It seems that these boys' lives have been mapped out already. But destiny has other plans: the colourful residents of Cedar Hole will be forced to acknowledge that a great man can come in many guises.

Sideways Stories from Wayside School

There was a terrible mistake. Wayside School was supposed to have been built with thirty classrooms all next to each other in a row. Instead, it was built with the thirty classrooms all on top of each other - thirty stories high! That may be why all kinds of strange stuff happens at Wayside School. Especially, on the thirteenth floor. It is a school full of unusual characters too. Mrs Gorf the meanest teacher in the world. Terrible Todd who always gets sent home early. John who can only read upside down. It is a crazy mixed up school brilliantly brought to life by the irresistible Louis Sachar.

Maybe some people just like to keep things private. Secret, I guess you'd say.

Now they are moving to New England and a house of their own - a new life that Meri is not sure she even wants. She loves her husband, but feels there may be trouble ahead.

The Senator is nowhere to be seen, but Meri strikes up an unexpected friendship with his wife, the elegant Delia, sensing that she has much to learn from her - about marriage, love and motherhood. But soon she comes close to a terrible breach of trust that could ruin everything.

Big fat duck cookbook

In this enormous, beautiful book, we hear the full story of the meteoric rise of Heston Blumenthal and The Fat Duck, birthplace of snail porridge and bacon-and-egg ice cream, and encounter the passion, perfection and weird science behind the man and the restaurant. Heston Blumenthal is widely acknowledged to be a genius, and The Fat Duck has twice been voted the Best Restaurant in the World by a peer group of top chefs. But he is entirely self-taught, and the story of his restaurant has broken every rule in the book. His success has been borne out of his pure obsession, endless invention and a childish curiosity into how things work - whether it's how smell affects taste, what different flavours mean to us on a biological level, or how temperature is distributed in the centre of a souffle.In the first section of "The Big Fat Duck Cookbook", we learn the history of the restaurant, from its humble beginnings to its third Michelin star (the day Heston received the news of this he had been wondering how exactly he would be able to pay his staff that month). Next we meet 50 of his signature recipes - sardine on toast sorbet, salmon poached with liquorice, hot and iced tea, chocolate wine - which, while challenging for anyone not equipped with ice baths, dehydrators, vacuum pumps and nitrogen on tap, will inspire home cooks and chefs alike. Finally, we hear from the experts whose scientific know-how has contributed to Heston's topsy-turvy world, on subjects as diverse as synaesthesia, creaminess and flavour expectation.With an introduction by Harold McGee, incredible colour photographs throughout, illustrations by Dave McKean, multiple ribbons, real cloth binding and a gorgeous slip case, "The Big Fat Duck Cookbook" is not only the nearest thing to an autobiography from the world's most fascinating chef, but also a stunning, colourful and joyous work of art.

Harry Potter és a titkok kamrája

A ?szemközti falon valami fénylett. Óvatosan közelebb mentek, s közben hunyorogva fürkészték a sötétséget. A lobogó fáklyák fényében egy felirat csillant meg. Valaki fél méter magas betűkkel ezt mázolta a két ablak között a falra: FELTÁRULT A TITKOK KAMRÁJA. AZ UTÓD ELLENSÉGEI RESZKESSENEK! Harry Potter varázslónak született, és jelenleg második tanévére készül a Roxfort Boszorkány-és Varázslóképző Szakiskolában. De már a szünidő sem telik eseménytelenül: egy nap különös szerzet , egy házimanó jelenik meg a Privet Drive-on, és közli Harryvel, hogy nagy veszély leselkedik rá, ha visszatér az iskolába. Harry a riválisa, Draco Malfoy mesterkedését sejti az üzenet mögött, és nem törődik a figyelmeztetéssel. Sőt, valójában el is feledkezik róla, ugyanis barátja, Ron egy repülő autón megszökteti a kibírhatatlan Dursley-éktől, s Harry a nyár további részét Weasley-éknél tölti. Ám a Roxfortba visszatérve hamarosan beigazolódik, hogy Dobby, a házimanó nem a levegőbe beszélt. Szörnyű dolgok vannak készülőben… A Kate Greenaway-díjjal kitüntetett Jim Kay pazar illusztrációkkal jeleníti meg J.K. Rowling varázslatos világát az immár klasszikus sorozat második kötetében.
