Available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. There have been wrens nesting under Gran-ma and Gran-pa's back porch since Mummy was a little girl, and the ones who nest there now are probably ... "There are two birds - the male and the female - and they come from different nests. -- Roxanne Schinas has always had a passion for wildlife. Long before she was old enough to read of Gerald Durrell's adventures she was emulating them, with pets ranging from rabbits and half-tame hedgehogs to toads, sticklebacks, locusts, and a crayfish. In the spring of 2008, while her family were cruising in southern Spain, Roxanne decided to make a survey of the seagull colony on an uninhabited island. The project began with a hand-drawn map on which the nests were plotted. Phase two was to have consisted in the study of the young birds growing up on the island, but when a local nature warden told her that most of the chicks would die, Roxanne found that she had a perfect excuse for "rescuing" two and bringing them home. Mother was not impressed... but the deed was done, and now the young naturalist had the opportunity to study, intimately, the development of Larus Cachinanns, the yellow-legged gull. Two Gulls and a Girl is Roxanne's record of events in the seagull colony and amongst her two hand-reared birds. Contains 92 black-and-white photos and illustrations. Foreword by Richard Williamson.

“An enthralling conclusion to this superb trilogy, displaying an exceptional combination of originality, magic, adventure, character, and drama.”—Kirkus Reviews (starred review) King Shrewd is dead at the hands of his son Regal. As is Fitz—or so his enemies and friends believe. But with the help of his allies and his beast magic, he emerges from the grave, deeply scarred in body and soul. The kingdom also teeters toward ruin: Regal has plundered and abandoned the capital, while the rightful heir, Prince Verity, is lost to his mad quest—perhaps to death. Only Verity’s return—or the heir his princess carries—can save the Six Duchies. But Fitz will not wait. Driven by loss and bitter memories, he undertakes a quest: to kill Regal. The journey casts him into deep waters, as he discovers wild currents of magic within him—currents that will either drown him or make him something more than he was. Praise for Robin Hobb and Assassin’s Quest “Fantasy as it ought to be written . . . Robin Hobb’s books are diamonds in a sea of zircons.”—George R. R. Martin “Superbly written, wholly satisfying, unforgettable: better than any fantasy trilogy in print—including mine!”—Melanie Rawn

Return of the Birds - Terror from the sky! What if I told you all the beautiful birds that we love and feed suddenly changed and began to feed on us?It happened once in a sleepy resort town in Northern California called Bodega Bay. Now more than 55 years later, it begins again. But it is far worse this time. Species of birds including not just crows and sea gulls, but hawks, eagles and vultures have joined the invasion.What caused this? Why is it happening? Tory McKnight, a student of ornithology from UCSD becomes swept up in a nightmare from her beloved birds, and must try to solve the mystery before the whole town gets killed and a nationwide pandemic ensues. This Hitchcock-style suspense thriller was inspired by the movie “The Birds,” and the short story from Daphne du Maurier. Return of the Birds will have you searching the skies, and both scared to read more but unable to put it down. Hurry, enjoy this before they gather again. Look for the sequel Revenge of the Birds Interview with the author: Return of the Birds and Revenge of the Birds are very distinctive from your other books, why did you write them? I was always intrigued by the movie “The Birds” but felt too many questions were left unanswered. It niggled at me all my life, especially every time I watched the movie. I had to write the next chapters to the original story. Do you answer all the questions from the movie “The Birds?” Most of the questions get addressed, but in so doing more questions and concerns arise. There remains a good deal of suspense throughout the book and beyond. It resulted in me writing the sequel, Revenge of the Birds. Why do readers enjoy these books? If they love a classic cliffhanger or good thrillers they enjoy these books. They are longer than the short stories they were inspired by, but then both novels have extra twists and turns that add to the storyline and keep the suspense flowing.

In The Wild Irish Girl, the powerful Irish heroine's marriage to a heroic Englishman symbolizes the Anglo-Irish novelist Lady Morgan's re-imagining of the relationship between Ireland and Britain and between men and women. Using this most influential of pro-union novels as his point of departure, Thomas J. Tracy argues that nineteenth-century debates over what constitutes British national identity often revolved around representations of Irishness, especially Irish womanhood. He maps out the genealogy of this development, from Edgeworth's Castle Rackrent through Trollope's Irish novels, focusing on the pivotal period from 1806 through the 1870s. Tracy's model enables him to elaborate the ways in which gender ideals are specifically contested in fiction, the discourses of political debate and social reform, and the popular press, for the purpose of defining not only the place of the Irish in the union with Great Britain, but the nature of Britishness itself.

"Ask anyone what they love most about Winzer, and they seem always to tell you it's the people, the family and friends webbed around each of us. True. But for me the town is also, and perhaps mainly, the larger-than-life characters who ghost around in my imagination and my memory: rumrunners and prize fighters and elegant old ladies and one-eyed thugs and earnest well-meaning politicians and hucksters and hookers and crusty old editors. Many of them I remember meeting. Some of them I actually met." —from The River The River is Paul Vasey’s tribute to a place he discovered by accident and loved over a lifetime. Chatty, anecdotal, personal and passionate, by one of Windsor’s most celebrated reporters and radio hosts, this meandering memoir winds its way around a river town whose sights and characters may never be fully charted: a Windsor that fired a reporter’s imagination, stole his heart, and eventually became the place he calls home.

After you've played your twenty-seventh game of shuffleboard today, and one more lobster dinner is going to force you to grow claw crackers, find a quiet place with a comfortable deck chair. I've heard people say that a cruise ship is exciting and boring, riotous and relaxing, and they'll either never travel any other way again or move to the desert. Nevertheless, everyone seems to agree-the ships are always packed with enough people to make single-file a lifestyle. Here's a book to take with you when you do locate an unpopulated corner of your floating pool deck. Two dozen ways to escape from anxious deckhands laden with fresh towels, single women and men seeking a night, a cruise, or a bankroll, and those wonderful toddlers who think every solid object is a drum. The stories are grouped together in groups of three with some obvious, well maybe not always obvious, connection. Read them slowly, alone or with a friend, if that's your reason for taking the ship in the first place. Take your time, though, don't rush; save a few stories for the lifeboat.

“The Quarry,” Rory croaked. “There’s been a massacre! They’re dead…. all DEAD!” It is high summer in the picturesque fishing village of Barlmouth and the beach and streets are thronged with tourists. Suddenly they are attacked by flocks of seagulls, acting in a structured and coordinated way. Why? Terrorism! Rork is a young seagull who discovers that local businessmen are secretly culling the birds in his colony. He finds himself thrust unwillingly into leadership of the gulls and organises a dramatic protest. Factions within the gull colony resort to more vicious methods to avenge their kinfolk and Rork struggles on two fronts to contain the inevitable escalation. Anne Rigby is a feisty young reporter for the local paper who realises that the birds have a message to convey and searches for the reason. The local population takes sides in the conflict that follows, which is followed avidly on national television. This culminates in a pitched battle between gulls and gunmen, centred on and around the elegant launching party of a superyacht belonging to a local dignitary. The conclusion is as sudden and surprising as it is unexpected. The Dirty Bombers is a humorous work of young adult fiction that will also appeal to older readers. It can be seen as an analogy for conflict between groups such as the Palestinians and Israelis, with peacemakers and hardliners on both sides, making the topic accessible to teen readers. Author Ed has been inspired by Richard Adams and John Wyndham.
