Eleven-year-old twins Oliver and Celia Navel live on floor 4-1/2 of the Explorers Club with their father, Dr. Navel. Their mother, Dr. Navel, has been missing for years. So when an explorer shows up with a clue as to where his wife could be, Dr. Navel drags Oliver and Celia to Tibet to find her. Once there, the twins fall out of airplanes, encounter Yetis, travel through waterfalls, and end up in the Demon Fortress of the Warrior King where they - just possibly - might find their mother and save their father from the Poison Witches. Thing is, they would much rather be watching television. And if their trip doesn´t work out as planned, the twins could end up as slaves to Sir Edmund Thitheltorpe III, an evil explorer with breath that smells like boiled carrots and who has it in for the whole Navel family. 1.

Do you consider yourself an environmental ally? Maybe you recycle your household goods, ride a bike, and avoid too much air travel. But did you know that the primary driver of climate change isn´t plastics or cars or airplanes? Did you know that it´s actually our industrialized food system? In this fascinating new book, authors Nil Zacharias and Gene Stone share new research and compelling arguments that support what scientists across the world are beginning to affirm and uphold: By making even minimal dietary changes, anyone can have a positive, lasting impact on our planet. If you love the planet, the only way to save it is by switching out meat for plant-based meals, one bite at a time.

I´m Too Fond of My Fur!: When my old friend Professor von Volt called to ask for help, I agreed immediately, even though it meant trekking halfway around the world to Mouse Everest! The trip was long and dangerous. I almost froze my tail off along the way. And then I was kidnapped by a yeti! Yes, it was truly an amazing adventure. Four Mice Deep In The Jungle: I have never been a brave mouse...but lately, my fears were taking over my life! So Thea and Trap decided to cure me. They dragged me away on an airplane (I´m afraid of flying!), all the way to the jungle. There I was forced to eat bug soup, climb trees as tall as skyscrapers, swim in raging rivers, and even wrangle snakes. How would a ´fraidy mouse like me ever survive? Paws Off, Cheddarface!: Holey cheese, it was strange! Rodents kept telling me I´d done things I had no memory of. Was I going crazy? Had the cheese finally slipped off my cracker? No, I soon discovered the truth: There was a Geronimo look-a-like going around, pretending to be me! Worst of all, he was trying to take over The Rodent´s Gazette! I had to get that greedy impostor´s paws off my newspaper, but how? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Edward Herrmann. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/lili/000435/bk_lili_000435_sample.mp3.

The creators of the absurdly funny picture book ´´How to Eat an Airplane´´ put a vehicular spin on pet adoption featuring an unlikely pet: a dump truck. Kids will not only laugh, but learn. Full color.
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.
