The trap is set… Single mom and successful boutique owner Sarah Stewart didn't have room in her life for a pet, let alone a man. With a teenage girl to raise and a business to run, she couldn't do anything more than look at Jonathan Marshall, the single—and singularly good-looking—man who just moved in next door with a teenage daughter of his own. Still, since their girls would be classmates, it made sense to make friends. But that was as far as it could go. Despite the best efforts of some teenage matchmaking, Sarah wasn't giving in. Because she just isn't ready to put her heart on the line—again.

Luise has ringlets. Lottie has braids. Apart from that they look exactly the same. But they are sure that they have never set eyes on each other in their lives. When the two girls meet at a summer camp and discover the secret behind their similarity, they decide to switch places. Everyone is fooled (apart from the dog) and, despite a few mistakes and misadventures, everything goes to plan for Luise as Lottie and Lottie as Luise - until their father meets a young, beautiful woman and things start to unravel... Funny, moving, affectionate and improbable, The Parent Trap has twice been adapted for film - but the book remains one of the great classics of German children's literature. Erich Kästner, writer, poet and journalist, was born in Dresden in 1899. His first children's book, Emil and the Detectives, was published in 1929 and has since sold millions of copies around the world and been translated into around 60 languages. After the Nazis took power in Germany, Kästner's books were burnt and he was excluded from the writers' guild. He won many awards, including the prestigious Hans Christian Andersen Award in 1960. He died in 1974.

Once burned is all it takes... Twelve years ago, Fire Captain Raul Montenga left Rancho del Cielo--and Penelope Gibson--far, far behind, desperate never to end up trapped in a life his parents planned for him. Haunted by erotic dreams of a night that had never happened, he finally comes home for good, only to be confused by Penelope's cold shoulder and icy rejection. So imagine his shock to answer his door one day and find her tomboy daughter standing nervously on his porch...claiming to be his child. Dr. Penelope Gibson overcame just about every obstacle in her life to become the new town doctor--her father's death, her mother's indifference, her ridiculous crush on a boy she'd never wanted her back and finally, the pregnancy that changed her life for the better. But now Raul’s back, thanks to her daughter's sly plans, and the feelings she’d thought frozen solid are melting in his wake. Along with her inhibitions, her clothes and all her better judgment. No matter how hard Penelope tries to hold on to her old way of life, everything is changing. Raul might tempt her, her daughter might be determined to have the family she's always wanted, and the town might be cheering for a happily ever after she wants more than she can ever say, but no one knows the secret she hides. And if the truth ever gets out, all Penelope's dreams may just go up in smoke... Originally published as "Burn For Me", now with updated content!

In the 1990s, the Parent Question has become a constant on the political agenda. New Labour is committed to do whatever it takes to turn lazy, bad and inadequate parents into good ones. The author states that she is writing the book to define this new morality, and to explain why we collude with it at our peril. I want to explain where these ideas came from, why they have so much public support and why, seeing the world in terms of good and evil has created a moral panic that has resulted in the new morality. She explores how the scandals, the scare statistics and public events - such as Mandy Allwood, the Home Alone children, the divorce epidemic, Louise Woodward, the Julia Somerville bath photos, the murder of the headteacher Phillip Lawrence, unmarried teenage mothers, Jack Straw and son - have turned a vague national anxiety into a panic.

Mother of three Cheryl Critchley, who refuses to let the parenting industry run her life, is on a mission to de- clutter parenthood and bring back the basics. Today's parents are time-poor and confused. We are literally drowning in paraphernalia, from programs teaching babies to read to professional party planners for five-year- olds. We have lost confidence and become paranoid, wrapping kids in cotton wool and spoiling them rotten. Cheryl says it's time to slow down, relax (yes relax!), keep it simple and take charge. Parents need permission to ignore the guilt-trip laid on by marketers pushing $1500 prams and overpriced private schools. They need good, basic advice on how to host a great party without spending a fortune, whether your child is ready for school and what to tell teenagers about drugs. They also need to be wary of kids growing up too fast and becoming slave to the range of new technologies taking over their lives. With expert tips and straight talking advice, in the style that has made Cheryl's Parent Trap column in the Herald Sun so popular, you can unspoil your kids and truly enjoy life with them. It's not too late!

The single most important and life-altering decision a person will ever make--whether or not to become a parent--is, too often, not properly deliberated. Drawing from the author's own experiences as a mother, grandmother, professional nanny, and an editor of court documents at a California county child protective services department, "The Parent Trap: 51 Things to Consider Before Becoming a Parent" aims to inform prospective parents of all the ramifications of having children. The author asks the reader to seriously consider two questions: "Am I ready to be a parent?" and "Is parenthood right for me?" This comprehensive book should be required reading for anyone considering parenthood. Although the subject matter is a serious one, humorous personal anecdotes and helpful insights make for an entertaining, enjoyable, and enlightening read. "Parenthood can be enormously rewarding, but it shouldn't be entered into lightly," says Jane Jordan. She adds, "If I can save even one child from an unhappy and loveless upbringing, then all of my time and effort spent bringing this book to life will have been worthwhile."
