Ride on Toys
Is it easier to lift a bag full of toys with an inclined plane or a pulley? Readers will see how a group of kids compares two simple machines and decides which one does a better job.
I WILL NOT GO THE F**K TO SLEEP, a book of humor and satire by an author who was called "very funny" by Kurt Vonnegut, is an anytime book for adults who refuse to grow up or to go to sleep in this unreal and wacky world of yogis, retired nukes, and presidents named Bush. Profane, compassionate, radical, wickedly funny at times, it captures a world and a humor that is unfamiliar to most Western readers. Subversive and diaper-wettingly funny, this book is for children of all ages over 15. You probably should not read it to your children under 15; but don't be surprised if they decide to read it to you. By the father of 3 children, 8 other books, and 1 kicking and screaming Inner Child that refuses to grow up.This e-book edition was No. 2 on Amazon's Political Humor bestseller list for nearly 5 weeks. "Hysterical and informative. For the rebel in you. Great style and humor"--Linda J. Lundy, Amazon 5-star review"I bought this book looking for a good laugh. I ended up with more than a few." Alex Canton-Dutari, Amazon 5-star review."
As inventive as Agatha Christie, as hilarious as P.G. Wodehouse - discover the delightful detective stories of Edmund Crispin. Crime fiction at its quirkiest and best. Richard Cadogan, poet and would-be bon vivant, arrives for what he thinks will be a relaxing holiday in the city of dreaming spires. Late one night, however, he discovers the dead body of an elderly woman lying in a toyshop and is coshed on the head. When he comes to, he finds that the toyshop has disappeared and been replaced with a grocery store. The police are understandably skeptical of this tale but Richard's former schoolmate, Gervase Fen (Oxford professor and amateur detective), knows that truth is stranger than fiction (in fiction, at least). Soon the intrepid duo are careening around town in hot pursuit of clues but just when they think they understand what has happened, the disappearing-toyshop mystery takes a sharp turn…Erudite, eccentric and entirely delightful – Before Morse, Oxford's murders were solved by Gervase Fen, the most unpredictable detective in classic crime fiction.
