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.

Fresh from successful flights before royalty in Europe, and soon after thrilling hundreds of thousands of people by flying around the Statue of Liberty, in the fall of 1909 Wilbur and Orville Wright decided the time was right to begin manufacturing their airplanes for sale. Backed by Wall Street tycoons, including August Belmont, Cornelius Vanderbilt III, and Andrew Freedman, the brothers formed the Wright Company. But all was not well in Dayton, a city that hummed with industry, producing cash registers, railroad cars, and many other products. The brothers found it hard to transition from running their own bicycle business to being corporate executives responsible for other people´s money. Their dogged pursuit of enforcement of their 1906 patent - especially against Glenn Curtiss and his company - helped hold back the development of the U.S. aviation industry. When Orville Wright sold the company in 1915, more than three years after his brother´s death, he was a comfortable man - but his company had built only 120 airplanes at its Dayton factory and Wright Company products were not in the U.S. arsenal as war continued in Europe. 1.

Forever Changes may be 36 years old at the time of this writing, but its hermetic fusion of the personal and the political feels more relevant than ever. It speaks to the present in ways that, say, a Jefferson Airplane record never could, whatever the parallels between the late ´60s and our contemporary morass. Conceived as the last testament of a charismatic recluse who believe he was about to die, Forever Changes is one of the defining albums of an era. Here, Andrew Hultkrans explores the myriad depths of this bizarre and brilliant record. Charting bohemian Los Angeles´ descent into chaos at the end of the 60´s, he teases out the literary and mystical influences behind Arthur Lee´s lyrics, and argues that Lee was both inspired and burdened by a powerful prophetic urge. Andrew Hultkrans is a writer who lives in Brooklyn. He is the former editor-in-chief of Bookforum magazine.33 1/3 is a new series of short books about critically acclaimed and much-loved albums of the last 40 years. Focusing on one album rather than an artist´s entire output, the books dispense with the standard biographical background that fans know already, and cut to the heart of the music on each album. The authors provide fresh, original perspectives - often through their access to and relationships with the key figures involved in the recording of these albums. By turns obsessive, passionate, creative, and informed, the books in this series demonstrate many different ways of writing about music. (A task which can be, as Elvis Costello famously observed, as tricky as dancing about architecture.) What binds this series together, and what brings it to life, is that all of the authors - musicians, scholars, and writers - are deeply in love with the album they have chosen. 1. Language: English.

Chase Baker, Renaissance man and adventurer is back. When a flirtatious, beautiful young woman by the name of Andrea Gallo claims to be a fan of his pulp novels, Chase can´t resist reciprocating in the lusty attraction. But that night, while the two enjoy a romantic evening of wine and love in his Florence apartment, he is suddenly kidnapped from his bed by two thugs who turn out not only to be working for Great Britain´s infamous MI-16, but also working side-by-side with Gallo. Duped once again, Chase wants to bid his newfound romance a quick ´´arrivederci´´ and be on his way. But when they tell him they desperately need his help to uncover a legendary cave in the Northern Italian forest before a team of Russian and Iranian hardliners do, he feels compelled to help out, regardless of their rather unsound method of capturing his attention. But what´s so special about the cave? It´s said to be the very same cave that Leonardo da Vinci discovered as a young man back in the mid-15th century, and where he not only learned the secrets behind his many inventions, including the airplane, but where he was exposed to the very meaning behind God´s divine plan for mankind. Why is the MI-16 so desperate to uncover the cave before the bad guys do? Whoever discovers it first will possess the knowledge and the power to take over the world. 1. Language: English.
