They Do It With Mirrors


A facsimile first edition hardback of the Miss Marple books, published to mark the 75th anniversary of her first appearance and to celebrate her new-found success on television. When The Murder at the Vicarage was published in October 1930, little did the literary world realise that Agatha Christie, already famous for her early Poirot titles, was introducing a character who would become the best-loved female sleuth of all time. The 14 Marple books would appear at intervals over the next 49 years, with Miss Marple's Final Cases published in 1979, three years after Agatha's death. To mark the 75th anniversary of Miss Marple's first appearance, and to celebrate her renewed fortunes as a primetime television star, this collection of facsimile first editions will be the perfect way to enjoy these books in their original form - 12 novels and two short story collections. Reproducing the original typesetting and formats from the first editions from the Christie family's own archive copies, these books sport the original covers which have been painstakingly restored from the best available copies, reflecting five decades of iconic cover design.

The three little pigs have never looked so cute and the big bad wolf never looked so bad in this retelling of the classic fairy tale! Vintage Disney artwork from the 1940s makes this book an important addition to every Little Golden Book collector s library." James A. Garfield was one of the most extraordinary men ever elected president. Born into abject poverty, he rose to become a wunderkind scholar, a Civil War hero, and a renowned and admired reformist congressman. Nominated for president against his will, he engaged in a fierce battle with the corrupt political establishment. But four months after his inauguration, a deranged office seeker tracked Garfield down and shot him in the back. This stunning debut captures the grotesque madness of a mystical under-land, as well as a girl s pangs of first love and independence. Alyssa Gardner hears the whispers of bugs and flowers precisely the affliction that landed her mother in a mental hospital years before. This family curse stretches back to her ancestor Alice Liddell, the real-life inspiration for Lewis Carroll s "Alice s Adventures in Wonderland." Alyssa might be crazy, but she manages to keep it together. For now. When her mother s mental health takes a turn for the worse, Alyssa learns that what she thought was fiction is based in terrifying reality. The real Wonderland is a place far darker and more twisted than Lewis Carroll ever let on. There, Alyssa must pass a series of tests, including draining an ocean of Alice s tears, waking the slumbering tea party, and subduing a vicious bandersnatch, to fix Alice s mistakes and save her family. She must also decide whom to trust: Jeb, her gorgeous best friend and secret crush, or the sexy but suspicious Morpheus, her guide through Wonderland, who may have dark motives of his own. Read all the books in the" New York Times "bestselling Splintered series: "Splintered ("Book 1"), Unhinged "(Book 2"), Ensnared ("Book 3"), "and" Untamed ("The Companion Novel")." Praise for "Splintered: "STARRED REVIEW "Fans of dark fantasy, as well as of Carroll s Alice in all her revisionings (especially Tim Burton s), will find a lot to love in this compelling and imaginative novel." "Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books" """Alyssa is one of the most unique protagonists I've come across in a while. Splintered is dark, twisted, entirely riveting, and a truly romantic tale." "USA Today" "Brilliant, because it is ambitious, inventive, and often surprising a contemporary reworking of Lewis Carroll s Alice s Adventures in Wonderland, with a deep bow The Essential Sampler Quilt Book : 40 Techniques for Machine and Hand Patchwork ebook pdf toward Tim Burton s 2010 film version." "The Boston Globe" "It s a deft, complex metamorphosis of this children s fantasy made more enticing by competing romantic interests, a psychedelic setting, and more mad violence than its original." "Booklist" " Protagonist Alyssa...is an original. Howard's visual imagination is superior. The story's creepiness is intriguing as horror, and its hypnotic tone and setting, at the intersection of madness and creativity, should sweep readers down the rabbit hole." "Publishers Weekly" "While readers will delight in such recognizable scenes as Alyssa drinking from a bottle to shrink, the richly detailed scenes that stray from the original will entice the imagination. These adventures are indeed wonderful." "BookPage" "Attention to costume and setting render this a visually rich read..." "Kirkus Reviews" "Wonderland is filled with much that is not as wonderful as might be expected, and yet, it is in Wonderland that Alyssa accepts her true nature. The cover with its swirling tendrils and insects surrounding Alyssa will surely attract teen readers who will not disappointed with this magical, edgy tale." "Reading Today Online" "Creepy, descriptive read with a generous dollop of romance." "School Library Journal" Award: YALSA s 2014 Teens Top Ten "
