In Kiss Kiss you will find eleven devious, shocking stories from the master of the unpredictable, Roald Dahl. What could go wrong when a wife pawns the mink coat that her lover gave her as a parting gift? What happens when a priceless piece of furniture is the subject of a deceitful bargain? Can a wronged woman take revenge on her dead husband? In these dark, disturbing stories Roald Dahl explores the sinister side of human nature: the cunning, sly, selfish part of each of us that leads us into the territory of the unexpected and unsettling. Stylish, macabre and haunting, these tales will leave you with a delicious feeling of unease. 'Roald Dahl is one of the few writers I know whose work can accurately be described as addictive' Irish Times Roald Dahl, the brilliant and worldwide acclaimed author of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, James and the Giant Peach, Matilda, and many more classics for children, also wrote scores of short stories for adults. These delightfully disturbing tales have often been filmed and were most recently the inspiration for the West End play, Roald Dahl's Twisted Tales by Jeremy Dyson. Roald Dahl's stories continue to make readers shiver today.

THE FIRST AUTHORIZED BIOGRAPHY OF ROALD DAHL, STORYTELLER IS A MASTERFUL, WITTY AND INCISIVE LOOK AT ONE OF THE GREATEST AUTHORS AND ECCENTRIC CHARACTERS OF THE MODERN AGE. In his lifetime Roald Dahl pushed children’s literature into uncharted territory, and today his popularity around the globe continues to grow, with millions of his books sold every year. But the man behind the mesmerizing stories has remained largely an enigma. A single-minded adventurer and an eternal child who gave us the iconic Willy Wonka and Matilda Wormwood, Dahl was better known during his lifetime for his blunt opinions on taboo subjects—he was called an anti-Semite, a racist and a misogynist—than for his creative genius. His wild imagination, dark humor and linguistic elegance were less than fully appreciated by critics and readers alike until after his death. Granted unprecedented access to the Dahl estate’s extraordinary archives—personal correspondence, journals and interviews with family members and famous friends—Donald Sturrock draws on a wealth of previously unpublished materials that informed Dahl’s writing and his life. It was a life filled with incident, drama and adventure: from his harrowing experiences as an RAF fighter pilot and his work in wartime intelligence, to his many romances and turbulent marriage to the actress Patricia Neal, to the mental anguish caused by the death of his young daughter Olivia. Tracing a brilliant yet tempestuous ascent toward notoriety, Sturrock sheds new light on Dahl’s need for controversy, his abrasive manner and his fascination for the gruesome and the macabre. A remarkable biography of one of the world’s most exceptional writers, Storyteller is an intimate portrait of an intensely private man hindered by physical pain and haunted by family tragedy, and a timely reexamination of Dahl’s long and complex literary career.

This volume informs the reader about new teachers in urban underserved schools and their development as teachers for social equity. The accounts of five novice teachers who grew up outside the communities in which they teach lead to chapters that contain advice for teacher educators, future and current teachers, and school leaders. These early career teachers learned much about bridging the cultural divide between themselves and their students, confronted and resolved big challenges that may immobilize some who set out to teach in these communities. They brought to their classrooms strong social justice orientations, including a moral imperative to make a difference in the world, an awareness of social and educational inequalities, and a strong sense of responsibility to positively influence the life trajectories of students in their charge. Their narratives offer insights on the dispositions and contexts that will help early career teachers survive and thrive and make a difference in their students’ lives.

The Zak Bates Eco-adventure Boxset includes: Ra-Kit's Initiation (A Prequel) How does an orphan kitten grow up to be the last living magic cat? A prequel to the Zak Bates Eco-Adventure series Ra-Kit claims to be the last living magic cat. But where did Ra-Kit's magic come from? Is she really five hundred years old or is that just part of the mythology she's woven for herself? What did Ra-Kit have to do to be initiated into the secret clan of magic cats? Dominion Over All When the last living magic cat and her flying canine companion show up on your doorstep, you don't expect things to get any stranger! Despite running his own zoo, Zak Bates considers himself pretty normal for a thirteen-year-old. Visited by Ra-Kit, a scruffy feline with some serious catnip issues, he's ill-prepared for the life-or-death assignment that follows. With the weight of the world on his shoulders, Zak must represent the Animal Kingdom at a United Nations Conference on Global Warming, convince the world government to stop poisoning the planet, broker interspecies peace, and diffuse an impending, bloody rebellion—just a bit harder than algebra! Endangered Protecting the planet: a thankless job and one that has no breaks! For Zak Bates and his magical friends, the next eco-adventures is usually right around the corner. In Zanesville, Ohio, a dangerous menagerie has escaped from a private preserve, and the situation threatens to spiral out of control. Francis, a spirit bear from British Columbia is being held captive, and, to free him, the Eco-Adventurers will need to align with Chatters, a white (knight) squirrel. Ghost Elephant In plundering the planet's treasures, men may gather riches, but more profound wealth is lost... Nia Gaines is the newest member of Zak Bate's Eco-Adventure task force—it's only, she doesn't know it yet. When Nia's parents drag her along on a business trip to China, the source of their affluence soon becomes clear: ivory, prized since ancient times for its beauty and never before so rare. In Beijing's back-alley curio shops, the prices are great...but what's the cost? The answer will change Nia's world. Along with the Eco-team, her journey will shed light on the darkest facets of humankind...but, even poachers have families to feed, and no solution is simple. What can be done to promise peace for man and those at his mercy? Junkyard Dogs Ready for a doggone great adventure? EmBARK today! As the head of an eco-team that's been tasked to overcome global warming and protect endangered species, Zak Bates is as busy as ever. Despite much help from a truly stellar multi-species coterie, his life, in a word, is wild, and it seems that things are about to get hairier. When the eco-team receives word from the Council of Animals of the Spiritual Frontier about a curious disturbance amongst New York's animal population, it soon becomes clear that something truly sinister is afoot—or apaw—and, worse, the plague is prodigious.

Reviews: I have just finished this book, full of suspense and difficult to put down! Brad Swift's Dominion Over All is a delight. Both youth and adult readers can relate to young Zak's rite of passage into an adventurer's life. Young Boy and his dog, a Magic Cat, a Flying Dog, and a poisoned world, what more can you ask for. This was a delight to read, kept me turning the pages, and waiting to see how it all would come together. My 8yr old, 13yr old, and even 15yr old, enjoyed the story. This is a wonderful story of adventure as Zak, with the help of his new friends, finds the strength within himself to do what he never thought possible.
