Kids love stuff that's gross. From the liquids, solids, and gases--especially the gases!--or their own bodies to the creepy, crawly, slimy, slithery, fetid, and feculent phenomena in the world at large, kids with a curious bent just can't get enough. Oh, Yuck! The Encyclopedia of Everything Nasty brings together, in one book, all the good things about some of the baddest things on Earth. Exhaustively researched and impeccably scientific, yet written with a lively lack of earnestness, Oh, Yuck! is an ants to zits encyclopedic compendium covering people, animals, insects, plants, foods, and more. Here are vampire bats, which sip blood and pee at the same time so that they'll always be light enough to fly away; and slime eels, wreathed in mucus and eating fellow fish from the inside out. Oh, Yuck! explains why vomit smells; where dandruff comes from; what pus is all about; and why maggots adore rotting meant. Other features include gross recipes, putrid projects, 10 foods that make you airborne, and more. With hundreds of cartoon illustrations and real-life photographs, Oh, Yuck! is the complete guide to the irresistible--at least to an 8-to-12 year old--underbelly of life.

In an isolated village, a series of odd events grabs the attention of the British Government; lights in the sky, a wrecked police car, strange smells and localised intense cold. The Home Office sends in its scientific advisor, Professor Oakwood Ash and his team to investigate. On their arrival there is no warm welcome from the villagers who have a secret that they intend to hold on to. Dominating the village is the ancient and mysterious Priory. Plundered by Henry VIII, it lies in ruins. Yet how can it be that, on occasions, some have seen it just as it was before the Reformation? And rumours of buried treasure? With peculiar happenings, eccentric characters and a thrilling investigation with twists at every turn, Peter Haines is at the peak of his powers in this first rate page-turner.

Manny, the little brown bear longs for a friend. But not just any friend. He longs for a Forever Friend. He wishes for a friend he can play with and laugh with, and dance and sing with. He wishes for a friend he can share all his happy thoughts and all his sad thoughts with. Find out what happens when Manny rescues a little white rabbit from a hunter's trap. Then follow them on their adventures as they happily explore their forest neighborhood. "He looked at his new friend with wonder and said, “And I don’t even know exactly WHY I was laughing!” “Oh,” she said, “I was just so happy to be free and so relieved you didn’t want to eat me that I just started laughing.” “Eat you?! Oh, no! Oh, yuck! Oh, gross! No way!” said Manny Bear, in a very shocked voice. “Yuck? What do you mean....YUCK!” the little white rabbit asked in a huffy tone. “Don’t you think I would taste good? What’s wrong with me? I am not gross or yuck!” Then realizing it might sound as if she were inviting him to have a taste she changed her mind. In a tiny voice, she said, “Never mind. I’m sure I must taste just awful anyway.” The little white rabbit sat up and offered her tiny paw to Manny Bear. He took it very gently in his much bigger paw. She said, “My name is Missy Rabbit and I am very pleased to meet you. Thank you for saving me.” Then they looked at each other and began to laugh all over again. By the time they finished laughing they were the best of friends. They were Forever Friends."

Treat yourself to some tea and sympathy with this lively tale of family conflict and rekindled love by #1 New York Times bestseller Sherryl Woods! TEA AND DESTINY The credo at Ann Davies’s house was always “room for one more.” But that meant safe, simple kids and kittens, not full-grown men with muscles and mustaches! Brawny and bearded Hank Riley generated heat of a different kind, and his expectations of his temporary landlady were far more adult.... With her brood of noisy waifs and her solution for every childish woe, Ann was the ultimate earth mother--and Hank had always run far and fast from women with long apron strings. Yet, Ann’s womanly ways soon had him craving more than just comfort from her feminine hands. Titles originally published in 1990.

When Truth Gives Out

Is the point of belief and assertion invariably to think or say something true? Is the truth of a belief or assertion absolute, or is it only relative to human interests? Most philosophers think it incoherent to profess to believe something but not think it true, or to say that some of the things we believe are only relatively true. Common sense disagrees. It sees many opinions, such as those about matters of taste, as neither true nor false; it takes it as obvious that some of the truth is relative. Mark Richard's accessible book argues that when it comes to truth, common sense is right, philosophical orthodoxy wrong. The first half of the book examines connections between the performative aspects of talk (what we do when we speak), our emotions and evaluations, and the conditions under which talk and thought qualifies as true or false. It argues that the performative and expressive sometimes trump the semantic, making truth and falsity the wrong dimension of evaluation for belief or assertion. Among the topics taken up are: racial slurs and other epithets; relations between logic and truth; the status of moral and ethical talk; vagueness and the liar paradox. The book's second half defends the idea that much of everyday thought and talk is only relatively true or false. Truth is inevitably relative, given that we cannot work out in advance how our concepts will apply to the world. Richard explains what it is for truth to be relative, rebuts standard objections to relativism, and argues that relativism is consistent with the idea that one view can be objectively better than another. The book concludes with an account of matters of taste and of how it is possible for divergent views of such matters to be equally valid, even if not true or false. When Truth Gives Out will be of interest not only to philosophers who work on language, ethics, knowledge, or logic, but to any thoughtful person who has wondered what it is, or isn't, for something to be true.
