Newbery medalist Jerry Spinelli has penned his early autobiography with all the warmth, humor, and drama of his best-selling fiction. "A master of those embarrassing, gloppy, painful, and suddenly wonderful things that happen on the razor's edge between childhood and full-fledged adolescence" (The Washington Post), From first memories through high school, including first kiss, first punch, first trip to the principal's office, and first humiliating sports experience, this is not merely an account of a highly unusual childhood. Rather, like Spinelli's fiction, its appeal lies in the accessibility and universality of his life. Entertaining and fast-paced, this is a highly readable memoir-- a must-have for Spinelli fans of all ages. From the Trade Paperback edition.

These seventeen classic stories create their own unique galaxy of vain, protective, and murderous robots; devilish angels; and warm and angry aliens. In "Mimsy Were the Borogoves"-the inspiration for New Line Cinema's major motion picture The Last Mimzy-a boy finds a discarded box containing a treasure trove of curious objects. When he and his sister begin to play with these trinkets-including a crystal cube that magnifies the unimaginable and a strange doll with removable organs that don't quite correspond to those of the human body-their parents grow concerned. And they should be. For the items are changing the way the children think and perceive the world around them-for better or worse. Ray Bradbury called Henry Kuttner "a man who shaped science fiction and fantasy in its most important years." Marion Zimmer Bradley and Roger Zelazny said he was a major inspiration. Kuttner was a writer's writer whose visionary works anticipated our own computer-controlled, machine-made world. At the time of his death at forty-two in 1958, he had created as many as 170 stories under more than a dozen pseudonyms-sometimes writing entire issues of science fiction magazines-in close collaboration with his wife, C. L. Moore. This definitive collection will be a revelation to those who wish to discover or rediscover Henry Kuttner, a true master of the universe.

It is said that love is the greatest gift of all, but in reality, there are two greatest gifts. One is love, that much we already know to be true. However, the second greatest gift is that of being a child, for it is only as a child that one knows how to truly believe. And it is this simple act of 'believing' that has its own special kind of magic, as you will see in this story. When a child believes, there is an energy that feeds everything and everyone around them. It feeds even those magical beings who most adults can no longer see nor will they ever see again because they no longer know how to see that which they stopped believing in. Sadly enough, there are even some children who stop believing. Sometimes it takes the energy of other children to awaken their beliefs again, and that is also the case in this story. So I invite you to reconnect to the magic that each of us once had, the magic that children always hold, and the magic that will bring you to a place where everything is possible. All you have to do is believe.

Three Weddings...And a Murder So far Meg Langslow's summer is not going swimmingly. Down in her small Virginia hometown, she's maid of honor at the nuptials of three loved ones--each of whom has dumped the planning in her capable hands. One bride is set on including a Native American herbal purification ceremony, while another wants live peacocks on the lawn. Only help from the town's drop-dead gorgeous hunk, disappointingly rumored to be gay, keeps Meg afloat in a sea of dotty relatives and outrageous neighbors. And, in whirl of summer parties and picnics, Southern hospitality is strained to the limit by an offensive newcomer who hints at skeletons in the guests' closets. But it seems this lady has offended one too many when she's found dead in suspicious circumstances, followed by a string of accidents--some fatal. Soon, level-headed Meg's to-do list extends from flower arrangements and bridal registries to catching a killer--before the next catered event is her own funeral...
