There was once a little green airplane named Andrew. Not only is Andrew the Airplane smart, but he´s also great at his job. Nobody could fly like Andrew the Airplane, but now the newer and bigger planes don´t think Andrew is good enough to keep up with them. They tease Andrew and tell him that he´s far too small to be a good plane. They say that he´s too old to fly in the air and deliver packages. The other planes start to get more deliveries than Andrew because they are bigger and can travel longer distances. Unfortunately for Andrew, he´s stored away in the plane hangar while the other planes become more popular. No one remembers that Andrew the Airplane is great in the air and the world moves on. Packages get delivered and poor old Andrew the Airplane is left alone. Well, until your child comes along and encourages him by building his self-esteem and showing Andrew how important and special he really is. One day a very large storm hits and manages to split the runway in half. None of the newer and bigger planes can use the runway because now it´s too small. The nearby town´s electricity has gone out and the people living there need fresh supplies. But with most of the planes being far too large, how can the supplies be delivered using such a small runway? Will Andrew the Airplane be able to prove that he has what it takes to deliver the supplies to the stranded townspeople, or are the big planes right, and is Andrew just far too small to be of any help? 1.

A crash landing at a remote island airstrip...a scary encounter with an octopus...green ants that defend their tree by attacking anyone who touches it...a mysterious lava-tube cave with hikers´ flashlights floating like fireflies down into its blackness...fruit bats noisily lobbing mangos onto your cabin´s tin roof...the beauties - and dangers - of the crocodile-infested Kakadu National Park...a rugby match in Northern Territory (and why Aussie girls never root for their teams)... In this colorful and remarkable book, written by a colorful and remarkable woman pilot, you´ll find the most enjoyable way to discover Australia - by flying a light airplane to its places of greatest interest while watching the exotic landscape unroll beneath you: vistas of giant paisley patterned earth, caused by underlying salt strata; stunning views of red landscapes, uplifted and contorted during the earth´s primordial boil; the enormously long white beaches of Western Australia, lonesome and edged by brilliant aquas; and the Indian Ocean to the south, marked by hundreds of miles of cliffs (whales breed there.... You could get lucky). You don´t have to be a pilot to enjoy this book. The author also wrote it for nonflyers, in nontechnical terms, to let you see amazing things that pilots experience from their very special perspective. 1. Language: English.

Soon to be a major film starring Game of Thrones´ Sophie Turner - Girl Who Fell From the Sky On December 24th 1971, the teenage Juliane boarded the packed flight in Peru to meet her father for Christmas. She and her mother fought to get some of the last seats available and felt thankful to have made the flight. The LANSA airplane flew into a heavy thunderstorm and went down in dense Amazon jungle hundreds of miles from civilization. She fell two miles from the sky, still strapped to her plane seat, into the jungle. She was the sole survivor among the 92 passengers, which included her mother. Juliane´s unexplainable survival has been called a modern-day miracle. With incredible courage, instinct and ingenuity, she crawled and walked alone for 11 days in the green hell of the Amazon. She survived using the skills she´d learned in assisting her parents on their research trips into the jungle before coming across a loggers hut, and, with it, safety. Now she tells her fascinating story for the first time and shares not only the private moments of her survival and rescue but her inspiring life in the wake of the disaster.
One of the most influential economists of the decade - and the New York Times best-selling author of The Great Stagnation - boldly argues that just about everything you´ve heard about food is wrong. Food snobbery is killing entrepreneurship and innovation, says economist, preeminent social commentator, and maverick dining-guide blogger Tyler Cowen. Americans are becoming angry that our agricultural practices have led to global warming - but while food snobs are right that local food tastes better, they´re wrong that it is better for the environment, and they are wrong that cheap food is bad food. The food world needs to know that you don´t have to spend more to eat healthy, green, exciting meals. At last, some good news from an economist! Tyler Cowen discusses everything from slow food to fast food, from agriculture to gourmet culture, from modernist cuisine to how to pick the best street vendor. He shows why airplane food is bad but airport food is good; why restaurants full of happy, attractive people serve mediocre meals; and why American food has improved as Americans drink more wine. And most important of all, he shows how to get good, cheap eats just about anywhere. Just as The Great Stagnation was Cowen´s response to all the fashionable thinking about the economic crisis, An Economist Gets Lunch is his response to all the fashionable thinking about food. Provocative, incisive, and as enjoyable as a juicy, grass-fed burger, it will influence what you choose to eat today and how we feed the world tomorrow. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Stephen Hoye.
