Need someone to fight your battles? Better higher the best!
In old Japan, large families struggled for power. When a battle started, they hired the best fighters. They hired samurai.
When Percy Jackson receives an urgent distress call from his friend Grover, he immediately prepares for battle. He knows he’ll need his powerful demigod allies, Annabeth and Thalia, at his side; his trusty bronze sword, Riptide; and…a ride from his mom.
The demigods race to the rescue, to find that Grover has made an important discovery: two new powerful half-bloods whose parentage is unknown. But that’s not all that awaits them. The Titan lord, Kronos, has set up his most devious trap yet, and the young heroes have just fallen prey.
Hilarious and action-packed, this third adventure in the series finds Percy faced with his most dangerous challenge so far: the chilling prophecy of the Titan’s curse.
Sparks are igniting. Flames are spreading. And the Capitol wants revenge.
Against all odds, Katniss has won the Hunger Games. She and fellow District 12 tribute Peeta Mellark are miraculously still alive. Katniss should be relieved, happy even. After all, she has returned to her family and her longtime friend, Gale. Yet nothing is the way Katniss wishes it to be. Gale holds her at an icy distance. Peeta has turned his back on her completely. And there are whispers of a rebellion against the Capitol – a rebellion that Katniss and Peeta may have helped create.
Much to her shock, Katniss has fueled an unrest she’s afraid she cannot stop. And what scares her even more is that she’s not entirely convinced she should try. As time draws near for Katniss and Peeta to visit the districts on the Capitol’s cruel Victory Tour, the stakes are higher than ever. If they can’t prove, without a shadow of a doubt, that they are lost in their love for each other, the consequences will be horrifying.
Over the course of history, men and women have lived and died. In fact, getting sick and dying can be a big, ugly mess–especially before the modern medical care that we all enjoy today. From King Tut’s ancient autopsy to Albert Einstein’s great brain escape, How They Croaked contains all the gory details of the awful ends of nineteen awfully famous people.
Wonderful book about rare plants!

Throughout the animal kingdom generally, showing off is widespread. Many animals for many different reasons need to draw attention to themselves. They may shout, sing from the treetops, wear bright colors, dance up and down, or emit clouds of perfume. Biologists call it “display,” but that is just another name for showing off. Displays have functions and advantages as well as dangers. Some are essential for courtship. Among animals, it is usually the males who posture and decorate themselves, and the females who select from among them. Some decorations, however, are simple warnings. Just a few are lies, as when harmless animals are dressed to look like more dangerous ones. We like animals that show off. As is demonstrated in this book, showing off adds much to the interest and excitement of life.
