Wild Animals Of The North by Dieter Braun

Take a journey into the farthest corners of the northern hemisphere. Dieter Braun's Wild Animals Of The North will take you on an epic adventure as you dive with great dolphins to the depths of the ocean, burrow through the undergrowth with wild boar, trot across the dry steppes with two-humped camels and climb high mountain peaks with the markhor. 

Bringing a slew of knowledge and information about the wildlife in the far north, Dieter Braun indulges, engages and entertains with this encyclopedia. Enticing factual storytelling juxtaposed against captivating visual illustrations. 







Did you know that the Kodiak bear is amongst the largest land-dwelling carnivore in the world, and can grow up to three metres in length and weigh almost 800 kilogrammes? 













"Orcas are also known as 'Killer Whales', but 'Whale Killers' would be a better name; other kinds of whales and small dolphins are part of their diet."












What makes the blue-footed booby so special is -- of course -- its beautiful blue feet. But why are they blue? There are two reasons. 





















This is definitely a book that is going to awe your kids if they are in love with the wilderness and curious about the north. A beautifully bound hardcover that is going to be on their shelves for a very long time.

The Best Kind Of People by Zoe Whittall

Zoe Whittall's book has been highly touted in the literary world. Now placed on the Giller Prize shortlist, the novel is on the wish list of many bookish fans to win the coveted title in November. But, beyond being just a literary piece, can this book that's highly controversial in its subject matter, illuminate the discussion on rape culture? 

There was so much discussion about The Best Kind Of People, and the hype inevitably caught up to me. Initially I was skeptical of the subject matter, but talk about its literary feat peaked my interest. I was in one of those book reading moods where the thought of committing to a heavy topic almost felt like an onset to depression. 

But, I'm quite glad I ignored that glass-half-empty feeling, because The Best Kind Of People is anything but that. Zoe Whittall's writing style is different. You feel like a fly on the wall taking in the events without necessarily being sucked into the drama. You don't necessarily have to take sid…

Nostalgia by M.G. Vassanji

"It's midnight and the lion is out."

This thought is persistent and insistent in Presley Smith's life. It haunts him and immobilizes his being. Is it some message from a previous life? Will this memory penetrate into his everyday existence and destroy his sanity?

Dr. Frank Sina wants to find out. Why does this phenomenon in his patient's mind begin with this single thought? A seemingly meaningless string of words that have no meaning for Presley Smith. In his sessions with Presley, Dr. Sina begins to creates a handwritten record of anything from his own or his patient's memories. He knows that whatever scraps were retrievable are probably already lost in the abyss of electromagnetic noise. 

As people leap from one life into another in an attempt to defy death, sometimes the switch is not a clean one. There is a slight chance that the past may catch up to a current life. And when those flashes of memory, slowly make their way in, they can haunt the person. Trying…

The Wolves Of Currumpaw by Wiliam Grill

A modern re-telling of Ernest Thompson Seaton's Lobo, the King of Currumpaw. Beautifully illustrated with a hint of sadness to the drawings. Set in the wilderness of New Mexico, in 1893, The Wolves Of Currumpaw is the story of a great wolf named Lobo. It recounts the hunting history of man trying to kill Lobo, but who eventually learns to respect the wolf. The storytelling is a bit complex and is something that will initiate a lot of conversation amongst the younger readers. It is also a longer book that will appeal to older readers. The story is a wonderful introduction of man's relationship with nature and includes accounts of Thompson's legacy to conservation. 
A reminder that history should never be forgotten.
