              Sydney Bellingham came to Canada from Ireland at the age of 15 in 1824 from Ireland. His lack of prejudice and snobbery sets him apart from a lot of English-speaking writers of that era, and made him a keen-eyed observer with a fresh perspective on important events in Canadian hi...story. This is a collection of historical snapshots of events Sydney Bellingham witnessed and the people he knew, and will be of particular interest to the academic market, especially programs in Canadian history and studies.

              The conclusion to the Ehrich Weisz Chronicles trilogy! Praise for Demon Gate, the first book in the Ehrich Weisz series: Demon Gate is a well-written adventure that creates the very unusual world in which Ehrich finds himself as he searches for his brother. The characters of the ...alien Dimensionals are fleshed out as are their motivations. There are good and bad on both sides. If readers enjoys fast-moving action, and the occasional hiss-worthy villain, with an attractive, but perhaps not quite human, girl from another dimension thrown in, they should relish Demon Gate, a tale of daring-do. Highly Recommended. -- CM Magazine In this third and final book of the Ehrich Weisz Chronicles, Ehrich must make good on his promise to his brother Dash that they will return to their home dimension from their current location in the alternate New York, where immigrants are not just from different lands -- but from different dimensions. When an attack by the Dimensionals kills passengers and crew of the airship Oriental Clipper, Demon Watch Commissioner Thomas Edison promises to electrocute 54 Dimensionals unless Ehrich and his friends can stop him, while thwarting warlord Ba Tian's planned invasion of New York.

              Bloodsuckers don't have the best reputation, if those itchy mosquito bites from last summer have anything to say about them, but before you jump to any conclusions, these little pests are more than meets the eye. Everyone knows about high-jumping fleas, classic vampire bats, and ...shudder-inducing leeches, but how about blood-sucking birds, butterflies and snails? Did you know that only 15-20 percent of people react to bed bug bites? Or that there are bloodsuckers that feed on other bloodsuckers? And that even dinosaurs were bugged by bloodsuckers? Sink your teeth into the world of these important creatures!

              CCBC's Best Books for Kids and Teens, 2008 Wake up, Hanna Bear! Hanna Bear can smell winter coming. It's time to find a den and snooze through the cold days and nights until spring because that is what bears do. But this year Hanna longs to see Christmas, so her friends agree to ...get her up for the special day. It isn't that easy to wake up a sleeping bear. When the mountain goat butts the door of her den, Hanna doesn't stir. So the moose tries, but even the sound of his antlers scraping back and forth doesn't wake up Hanna. The spruce grouse tries, and then the snowshoe hare, but no one can make enough noise. What are they going to do? They don't want to disappoint Hanna. But each one has made as much noise as they can. What more can they do? Children will enjoy making their own brand of noise as they follow along with the animals and help wake up Hanna. And they'll revel in the magic of a Christmas night, as they follow Hanna and her friends through the woods. A fun story for little ones about when to cooperate, when to make noise, and when to be silent.

              Imagine escaping from the terrors of plantation slavery, only to live for years in a swamp full of biting insects and deadly snakes. Picture yourself making a dangerous journey to freedom, guided by nothing but courage and the North Star. Think of beginning a new life in a new co...untry, only to fall prey to bounty hunters. The stories of the people who made up the Underground Railroad, that amazing network of quiet farm houses, peaceful country lanes, and busy city streets that reached from the slave-owning areas of the southern United States to the free states of the north and on to Canada, are among the most moving in our history. Meet some of the men and women who planned daring and ingenious ways to escape slavery, such as the resourceful Henry Box Brown, who mailed himself to Philadelphia_s Anti-Slavery Society in a box, and the strong-willed Harriet Tubman, who fled with nothing more than a scrap of bread and the clothes on her back, and then returned to the south year after year to help others find their way to freedom. North Star to Freedom draws on the stories of the Underground Railroad_s courageous passengers, whose extraordinary spirit broke their own chains, and the brave conductors, who risked their lives to help others simply because they believed that every person had the right to live free. More than just a book about the worst injustices of slavery, North Star to Freedom is ultimately about resourcefulness, compassion, and hope. Period posters, photographs, and paintings help to make North Star to Freedom a living history for readers of all ages.
