A Guided Reader to Early Years and Primary English draws on extracts from the published work of some of the most influential education writers to provide insight, guidance and clarity about key issues affecting early years practitioners and primary English teachers. The book brings together key extracts from classic and contemporary writing and contextualises these in both theoretical and practical terms. The extracts are accompanied by a summary of the key ideas and issues raised, questions to promote discussion and reflective practice, and annotated further reading lists to extend thinking. Taking a thematic approach and including a short introduction to each theme, the chapters cover: Models of and approaches to early years and primary English; Speaking and listening in English lessons: story-telling, drama, ‘booktalk’ and debate; Reading and responding to texts in English lessons; Writing in English lessons: finding a ‘voice’; Knowledge about language: grammar, spelling, punctuation and handwriting; The rich landscape of children’s literature; Non-fiction in English lessons; Planning, assessing and recording children’s progress: the learning cycle. Aimed at trainee and newly qualified teachers, those working towards Masters level qualifications and all those involved in the teaching of early years and primary English, this accessible, but critically provocative text will be an essential resource for those that wish to deepen their understanding of early years and primary English education.

In celebration of our 20th anniversary, Poisoned Pen Press has commissioned original short stories from thirty-five of its authors, past and present. Some names will be immediately recognizable to mystery aficionados-Kerry Greenwood with her Phryne Fisher mysteries, now also a popular television program, or Laurie R. King who has charmed Sherlockians worldwide with her beloved Mary Russell series. Some have gone on to big deals with the big leagues-Carolyn Wall, whose debut novel, Sweeping Up Glass, was purchased by Penguin Random House, or James Sallis, whose novella, Drive, was critically acclaimed and made into major motion picture starring Ryan Gosling. Several have been translated into other languages with foreign publishers. Some authors have been on hiatus, and are writing something new for the first time in years. Most have remained comfortably ensconced with us here at the Press, enjoying a modicum of fame and a steadily growing base of loyal readers who eagerly anticipate their next-in-series. This anthology celebrates our authors, their talent, and their diversity. Some have chosen to feature characters well-established within their own series-protagonists, supporting cast, and even one villain-turned-hero. Others have gone in totally different directions, inventing new characters and going dark or cozy for the first time, with chilling and delightful results. Yet as different as these authors and their stories are, they all share a common passion for finely crafted tales of crime and murder. From Greece to Italy, India to Australia, Great Britain to Canada; from the East Coast to the Pacific Northwest and New Mexico to the Savannah low country, they are a community Bound by Mystery, and we are proud to present their short fiction to you for the first time ever.

Growing up Jewish in London with a difficult home life, Jonathan Wilson had plenty of reasons to feel he didn't belong, and one reason to feel certain he did: football. Wilson discovered his love for the game as a young boy; through his adolescence and adulthood and well into his later years it remained an important part of his life. Football became Wilson's international passport, helping him find friends and community and solace all over the globe, from England to Israel to the US. Whether working on a kibbutz or teaching literature to young Americans, traveling through Russia or raising children, the sport remained a constant in his life. Kick and Run is a gripping, funny, sometimes heartbreaking account of a life well lived and a game played, if not always masterfully, then certainly with the utmost passion. Chosen by Clive Sinclair as a Best Book of 2013 in The Times Literary Supplement.

Ella ist vierzig Jahre alt, hat einen Ehemann, drei Kinder im Teenageralter und ein schönes Zuhause in einer amerikanischen Kleinstadt. Eigentlich sollte sie glücklich sein, in ihrem Herzen breitet sich aber eine Leere aus, die früher von Liebe gefüllt war. Als Gutachterin für eine Literaturagentur taucht sie tief in einen Roman über den Sufi-Dichter und Mystiker Rumi und die vierzig ewigen, geheimnisvollen Regeln der Liebe ein. Trotz der Ansiedlung im 13. Jahrhundert scheint ihr der Roman immer mehr eine Spiegelung ihrer eigenen Geschichte zu sein. Zusehends distanziert von ihrem Ehemann, beginnt Ella, ihr bisheriges Leben zu hinterfragen. Sie besucht den Verfasser des Buches, Aziz Zahara, mit dem sie sich schriftlich schon rege und sehr persönlich ausgetauscht hat - und erfährt eine derart grundlegende persönliche Veränderung, wie sie es sich nie hätte ausmalen können.

Herr und Frau Keck leben in einem hübschen Haus, haben tolle Jobs und sie lachen gern. Eigentlich sind sie nicht weiter auffällig. Bis auf eine Kleinigkeit – sie sind Hyänen. Das ist bisher noch niemandem in ihrer Nachbarschaft aufgefallen, selbst dann nicht, als ihre Kinder Bobby und Betty zur Welt kamen. Doch der grummelige Herr Kamuffel von nebenan scheint etwas zu ahnen, und ein Familienausflug in den nahegelegenen Wildpark droht plötzlich unangenehme Konsequenzen zu haben ...
