Hurricane Charlie strikes without warning, devastating Orlando and the treetop realm of Dreylanda secret society of urban birds and animals. The desperate wildlife migrates to other neighborhood groves defended by hostile residents. Worst of all, the Winter Slayer, a specter with power over death, reigns supreme in the carnage and destruction. In this chaotic post-hurricane setting, we see the power of the Creator, and of family and friendship eclipsing death as two wayward squirrels, Notch and Fuzzy, encounter Reek-Lee, Spook and other dangerous predators while searching for Heaven on Earththe legendary Nirvana tree. The story is told by Q, a wise old mother tree, and revolves around the three animals ruling in a Troika: Sage, a raccoon prophetess; Notch, the governor; and the regulator, a cat aptly called Dagger. They enjoy very long lives, in fact near immortality. But, after many seasons, a grudge between Dagger and Notch boils over into mortal combat, breaking the Troika, and releasing the Winter Slayer to claim what its long been denied. More than a modern-day animal story, in Diary of an Oak Tree we time-travel from Dreyland, back to the magical Age of Oaks, where rebellious men fought nature itself in the Battle of the Valley of Nigh, changing the Earth forever.

The Oxford Literacy Web is an exciting new literacy programme designed to guide schools successfully through the primary years. Fitting the requirements of the National Literacy Strategy, National Curriculum in England and Wales, English Language 5-14 in Scotland, and Common Curriculum in Northern Ireland, the Oxford Literacy Web guides pupils through the core skills associated with learning to read and write with a diverse range of literary styles within the genres of fiction, non-fiction, rhymes, language, and poetry. The "Non-Fiction" strand is a series of colourful, lively information books. They can be used to teach valuable information retrieval and research skills, and they enable children to learn to read and write a range of different text types. The books can be used with children at different levels of reading ability for shared reading with the teacher, guided reading, or independent reading. The First Non-Fiction books are designed to be used with childrenat Reception or Year 1. They present a range of text types on a variety of infant topics at a very low reading level (there is normally no more than one or two lines of text per page). The books are available in both standard and `big book' format. My Diary of an Oak Tree uses photos and diagrams to show how an oak tree and its environs change over a year.

This is the story of Misha, a young Russian boy who survived the siege of Leningrad by Nazi Germany during World War II. For 900 days (1941-1944) three million Leningraders endured starvation, lack of water, electricity, and fuel, living on one small piece of bread per day and subjected to endless air raids and bombardments. Cold and starvation destroyed over one million lives. The focal point of the book is based on the events detailed in Misha's diary. The remainder describes the historical context and impact of the blockade, and the survivor's life story. The book is intended as a tribute to the human spirit. Evelina was born in Russia in 1934. She worked as an engineer in Lvov, Ukraine for many years. It was there that she married Misha. After her husband died prematurely, Evelina decided to emigrate to America. She settled in Minnesota and found a job as an engineer. It was in America that Evelina became a Christian and married a minister. For many years she had an unshakeable determination to write this book, a biography of her beloved husband. Even as she struggled with cancer, which eventually took her life, finishing the book remained one of her top concerns. Although she never saw it published, her hope was that one day many people would be inspired by her husband's great zeal for life. In Misha's own words, "I have just now realized what life means to me. Life is a great gift given to us; it is not always lived properly."

While travelling in Calgary, Alberto Manguel was struck by how the novel he was reading seemed to reflect the world he was living in. An article in the daily paper would be suddenly illuminated by a passage in the novel; a long reflection would be prompted by a single word. He decided to keep a record of these moments, rereading a book a month, and formed A Reading Diary: a volume of notes, impressions of travel, of friends, of public and private events, all elicited by his reading.
