Discover how Rube Goldberg followed his dreams to become an award-winning cartoonist, inventor, and even an adjective in the dictionary in this inspiring and funny biographical picture book. Want to become an award-winning cartoonist and inventor? Follow your dreams, just like Rube Goldberg! From a young age, Rube Goldberg had a talent for art. But his father, a German immigrant, wanted Rube to have a secure job. So, Rube went to college and became an engineer. But Rube didn’t want to spend his life mapping sewer pipes. He wanted to follow his passion, so Rube got a low-level job at a newspaper, and from there, he worked his way up, creating cartoons that made people laugh and tickled the imagination. He became known for his fantastic Rube Goldberg machines—complicated contraptions with many parts that performed a simple task in an elaborate and farfetched way. Eventually, his cartoons earned him a Pulitzer Prize and his own adjective in the dictionary. This moving biography is sure to encourage young artists and inventors to pursue their passions.

And Other Bodiless Powers

And Other Bodiless Powers
"This poet possesses a precision both spare and fierce. And Other Bodiless Powers is cut from the same cloth as the poems of Lorine Niedecker in that they both read a landscape, down to its smallest aspect, and create from these thickets, fogs, and skiffs of snow a human language. When Sarah Aronson zeroes in, the world opens." -- ANDREW GRACE, author of A Belonging Field, Sancta, and Shadeland

Frank Marder is a head, paralyzed from the neck down, and it''s his fault. He was drinking. He was driving. Now Frank can''t walk, he can''t move, he can''t feel his skin. He needs someone to feed him, to wash him, to move his body. But if you ask most of the people who are posting on www.quadkingonthenet, he hasn''t been adequately punished. Two people are dead because of him. Frank should go to jail. Only "Annonymous" disagrees.

Believe

Believe
When Janine Collins was six years old, she was the only survivor of a suicide bombing that killed her parents and dozens of others. Media coverage instantly turned her into a symbol of hope, peace, faith—of whatever anyone wanted her to be. Now, on the ten-year anniversary of the bombing, reporters are camped outside her house, eager to revisit the story of the "Soul Survivor." Janine doesn''t want the fame—or the pressure—of being a walking miracle. But the news cycle isn''t the only thing standing between her and a normal life. Everyone wants something from her, expects something of her. Even her closest friends are urging her to use her name-recognition for a "worthy cause." But that''s nothing compared to the hopes of Dave Armstrong—the man who, a decade ago, pulled Janine from the rubble. Now he''s a religious leader whose followers believe Janine has healing powers. The scariest part? They might be right. If she''s the Soul Survivor, what does she owe the people who believe in her? If she''s not the Soul Survivor, who is she?
