We only recommend items our team loves! 1. The Only Fish in the Sea by Philip C. Stead (PreK–2). A rescue mission to save a shunned pet goldfish from a lonely life in the open ocean isn’t your average fishing trip. Sadie and Sherman take on the challenge in this zany tale. 2. Lana’s World: Let’s Go Fishing by Erica Silverman (PreK–2).

Every village family has given, joyfully, one, two, three of its best rooms for the cot beds of the Americans! . Fruit hung red and yellow in the orchards till the gathering. They had a lot to stand! he whispers.

Every village family has given, joyfully, one, two, three of its best rooms for the cot beds of the Americans! Barns and wagon-houses are transformed to dormitories. They are learning French. They are adopted by the family. I don’t say the families had as many bushels as a good year ; but there is no criticism. In a word, Sammy has good manners. He looks on these French people with a sort of awed compassion. And the villagers, who are no fools ( as wily as a villager, runs the French proverb), quite appreciate these fine shades.

The Fishing Fleet book. lifelong goodbye to their families, and shipped off to India, the exotic jewel in Mother’s England’s colonial crown. It takes us back to the days of the Raj in India, and the 'fishing feet' of young women leaving Britain to go husband-hunting in the extraordinary world of 19th century white and male-dominated India. Society there was a strange mix of toughness, stoicism, glamour, romance, boredom, rigid protocols and snobbery. There were many who had an intense loyalty to the country, especially those born there.

You have to go back twenty years. It made a bit of a splash locally. There had never been women bingo callers in the North-East before. The years trickled past. The bairns grew up and found jobs, which was hard on Alan’s pride. To the miners’ strike. They teach it to the bairns now as history, but I lived through it and it’s as sharp in my memory as yesterday. It had been as much a man’s job as cutting coal. The local paper wrote an article abut us, then the BBC turned up and did an interview with us for Woman’s Hour. He’s never worked since they closed the pit the year after the strike.

Clint writes this book as a real hunter who enjoys the hunt, but also enjoys the story. You can tell Clint is a fan of Ruark, Hemmingway, and Capstick". He's been there and done it.

The neighbour didn't say anything but gave Alberto and Mimi's head of staff a dirty look, then he went back into his garden. Alberto and Mimi felt better and then asked their head of staff to prepare their lunch for them. However, it wasn't enough. Over the next few days, Alberto and Mimi often found one or other or both of their new neighbours walking around their own garden. To show how they felt, Alberto and Mimi went into their neighbours' garden at night, when the neighbours were inside, and broke all the flowers. The next morning one of the neighbours came to talk to Alberto.

All families have their stories, their dramas, their private jokes, nicknames and phrases. Start someone talking about their family stories and they might never stop. They’re the place where our personalities were made. You’ll find the whole history of your country there, too. When my mother, still putting the family tree together, asked me for a few names from my Russian wife’s family, my wife got on the phone to her own mother.

Standing in a square watching a bonfire. There was a round building with a mettle roof. Mary moves from the corridors and back into the clearing. Forward and backward, stitching memory as she goes. And time after time I go dow. n memory, I give my name to a strange man guarding a door, sing a few notes of melody and walk into a candlelit kitchen. Each story and each piece of knowing is repeated back until the memories are spread like cloth that you could take up and fold into smaller squares. And I go dow. n memory I am pacing across a narrow kitchen.
