Eleven-year-old Isabel is a “plain old” girl living in Provincetown, Massachusetts, who believes that she is destined to accomplish something special. When her fifth-grade class goes on a whale-watch field trip, something amazing happens: Dozens of different species of whales surround the boat, bumping the deck and sending Isabel flying into the ocean. Isabel is shocked to hear the whales speaking to her—she is a mermaid, they tell her, a “Chosen One” who has the ability to turn from a human into a whale and back again. She is destined to live among the whales long enough to learn their ways, and teach them about the human world. Living among her pod is fun, at first, but Isabel has an important mission. She will change the whales’ future forever, and learn a lot about herself in the process. From the Hardcover edition.

Commercial whale-watching began in 1955 in California, when a San Diego fisherman started taking people (for a dollar a time) to see Grey Whales migrating along the coast. Nowadays, 13 million people go whale-watching each year, in 119 different countries around the world. The undisputed hotspot – with more than half of all whale-watchers – is North America. Mark Carwardine's Guide to Whale-Watching in North America is the second in a series aimed at millions of whale addicts around the world. It includes some of the world's ultimate wildlife experiences: tickling friendly grey whales in Mexico's San Ignacio Lagoon, listening to a live concert of singing humpback whales in Hawaii, being surrounded by thousands of dolphins in Monterey Bay, kayaking with pods of Orca off Vancouver Island, snorkelling with Beluga in Hudson Bay, and many more. It covers all the main whale-watching locations in the United States, Canada and Mexico; rich with photography throughout, the book will also include sections on how to watch whales (including everything from identification to interpreting behaviour), and a field-guide section covering all the whales, dolphins and porpoises that can be seen in North America. Mark Carwardine once again brings us a definitive guide, this time for all who love whales in North America.

Reading to a child is leading him/her into the world of a particular topic. The interpretations and explanations are fundamental in formulating a mind's image of all that is verbalized. What is read to a child is just as important as how it is read, and once a child steps into the words using his own imagination there is a stimulation that entices their want to hear more. Running alongside a lion in chase, or climbing to the very top of a huge redwood and seeing the entire world below, skipping along the ocean floor, or hearing a voice coming from a tree are just a few of the many trips your child will take in their journey through Isabella's Fables. And through the adventure there is a lesson to be learned. Unlike the fables of old, these stories are written in present day vernacular and the "moral of the story" is easily understood.

When an eerie mass stranding of whales and dolphins takes place along the mist-shrouded Oregon coast, forensic wildlife pathologist Isabel Spinner and her friend and coworker Marian Windhorse Gray covertly investigate this disaster as a crime against wildlife. For years, Isabel has kept plenty of emotional distance between herself and other humans while devoting herself to easing the suffering of animals. But when Isabel meets Marshall McGreggor, an undersea photographer whose recent transplant has him delving into the mystery surrounding his new heart, the two find themselves making surprising decisions that will forever change their lives. In this, her fourth, novel, renowned author Brenda Peterson offers a captivating love story of people whose compassion for animals compels them into extraordinary acts of heroism. Based on cutting-edge science, this powerful page-turner tackles such timely and troubling issues as low-frequency active sonar and animal experimentation and forewarns of a future of Dead Zone oceans, disappearing species, and a world with creatures whose DNA boundaries have been genetically blurred. At once prescient and poignant, Animal Heart is a haunting, highly original story of the deep bonds between humans and animals--and of our inevitably linked fates.

John Keats

This book offers an exciting reassessment of Keats with particular emphasis on gender identity and sexuality. Traditionally, Keats has been more readily associated with the 'feminine' than any other canonical male English poet. This feminization was always likely, given his tragically early death and the mythologizing which took place soon after. In contrast, John Whale explores Keats's writings from the perspective of masculinity and gender by placing them in the context of contemporary friendship groupings and coterie relationships. Whale addresses all the major poems and gives due prominence to the letters. In so doing, he offers a new understanding of Keats's exploration of poetry, gender and desire, and provides an extended analysis of Keats's quest for poetic fame in the face of the often conflicting forces of love and sexuality. Clear, concise and insightful, this is an essential guide to one of the best-known Romantic poets.
