This charming biography spans the life andaccomplishments of this award-winning children's author. She was forced to leave England during World War II for the Canadian wilderness. Though her first novel, The L-Shaped Room, was written for adults, it is often read by teens. It made news upon publication because of its subject matter-the trauma of making the painful decision to give up an unborn child. The author of the Indian in the Cupboard series, Banks wrote more than fifty novels for children and young adults. Included are source notes, a biographical timeline, and an interview with the author.

In a period of ongoing debate about faith, identity, migration and culture, this timely study explores the often politicised nature of constructions of one of Britain’s longest standing minority communities. Representations in children’s literature influenced by the impact of the Enlightenment, the Empire, the Holocaust and 9/11 reveal an ongoing concern with establishing, maintaining or problematising the boundaries between Jews and Gentiles. Chapters on gender, refugees, multiculturalism and historical fiction argue that literature for young people demonstrates that the position of Jews in Britain has been ambivalent, and that this ambivalence has persisted to a surprising degree in view of the dramatic socio-cultural changes that have taken place over two centuries. Wide-ranging in scope and interdisciplinary in approach, Jews and Jewishness in British Children’s Literature discusses over one hundred texts ranging from picture books to young adult fiction and realism to fantasy. Madelyn Travis examines rare eighteenth- and nineteenth-century material plus works by authors including Maria Edgeworth, E. Nesbit, Rudyard Kipling, Richmal Crompton, Lynne Reid Banks, Michael Rosen and others. The study also draws on Travis’s previously unpublished interviews with authors including Adele Geras, Eva Ibbotson, Ann Jungman and Judith Kerr.

Dark, seductive, and with mysterious secrets lurking around every corner, begins book one in Tristin Clark’s dark epic sci-fi fantasy romance series. Stolen and imprisoned aboard an alien ship, Serena, a human woman with a hidden power, finds herself moments away from death, but as fate would have it, another discovers and claims her life, and soon, her heart too. The voyage back to Mel’Vargon will be a long one, but until they arrive, Zurhen, the new Emperor and lonely king, takes it upon himself to care for his little one, vowing to do whatever he can, to nurture her back to health and see to all…of her aching needs. As they soar across the stars, and Serena adapts to her advancing power, and new surroundings, an undeniable, cosmic force between the two works at drawing them close. With mysterious elements at play, arising tensions aboard their ship, and an already fragile, and magic-less world on the verge of an uprise, a dark, peculiar presence lurks amongst the shadows, following and clinging to Serena and her inner power, threatening to draw her into his familiar, yet deadly orbit. A war is brewing. One that in the end, will force all, to choose a side. -------------------------- Warning: This book is intended for mature, adult audiences only.

It's been over a year since Omri discovered in The Indian in the Cupboard that, with the turn of a key, he could magically bring to life the three-inch-high Indian figure he placed inside his cupboard. Omri and his Indian, Little Bear, create a fantastic world together until one day, Omri realizes the terrible consequences if Little Bear ever got trapped in his "giant" world. Reluctantly, Omri sends the Indian back through the cupboard, giving his mother the magic key to wear around her neck so that he will never be tempted to bring Little Bear back to life. But one year later, full of exciting news, Omri gives way to temptation when he finds that his mother has left the magic key lying on the bathroom sink. A whole new series of adventures awaits Omri as he discovers that his Indian has been critically wounded during the French and Indian Wars and desperately needs Omri's help. Now, helplessly caught between his own life and his cupboard life of war and death, Omri must act decisively if he is to save Little Bear and his village from being completely destroyed. What began as a harmless game has tumed into a horrible nightmare, a nightmare in which Omri is irrevocably involved, and from which he may never escape.

Tracy wasn't surprised that her dad disapproved of Kev, with his hair in spikes, his Dayglo socks and all the rest of his punk gear. But she liked the way he looked and enjoyed going round with him. Besides, she was determined to have a good time before she had to get some boring job and settle down, like her sister Mary. That was why the trip to Holland seemed such a great idea. Of course it was Kev who suggested it, and Tracy knew that her parents would never let her go off with Kev, just the two of them. On the other hand, if there was a whole bunch of them going, including her friend Karen and some of the others from school, Dad might - just might - say yes. As things turned out, persuading Dad to say yes was only the beginning of her troubles. In fact so much went wrong that it was hard, afterwards, to remember the good bits, and it wasn't until the whole awful business was over that Tracy realised she should have seen what was going on all along.
