A Can You Imagine?

release date: Nov 02, 2021
A Can You Imagine?
Where do ideas come from? Everywhere! From the mind and paintbrush of one of Canada''s best-loved children''s book creators comes a visually delightful story about ideas, creative expression, and mindfulness. When our hero, a pig, stares at his empty canvas, he feels like he doesn''t have any new ideas. So he sets off to find inspiration. Does he really go anywhere, or is it mostly in his mind? That''s up to the reader, but a fantastic journey winds him through lots of interesting places, surreal and everyday, which provide a feast for his senses. When he''s had enough, he heads home, full of ideas. He returns to his canvas and paints something that was always close to home -- just outside his door, in fact -- but that he now sees in a new light as a result of his creative journey. Full of humour, whimsy, and wisdom, Can You Imagine? is a great jumping-off point for thinking about where to find ideas (everywhere!), taking in the world around you, and listening to yourself to find your creativity.

The Real Gangs of New York

release date: Sep 12, 2020
The Real Gangs of New York
★★★ Is true better than fiction? ★★★ The subject of a classic history by Herbert Asbury and an Academy Award-nominated film by Martin Scorsese, the gangs of The Five Points in New York have become the stuff of legend. But how much is legend and how much is fact? In this short book, we examine the original gangs of the Five Points in New York and see how accurate the film was (spoiler alert: not very) and what Asbury may have gotten wrong in his original research on this era. From the Bowery Boys to the Dead Rabbits, we look at the gangs that operated not just in the Five Points, but also those who wanted a piece of the action there and engaged in gang wars that would leave even modern thugs quivering in their boots!

release date: Sep 01, 2020
The Axeman
★★★ Discover a serial killer you''ll never forget! ★★★ Between 1918 to 1919 a serial killer ran rampant throughout New Orleans. His weapon of choice? The axe. He didn''t spare women. Or children. Or even men. There was only one kind of person who could be sparred from the blade of his axe: the home of a person playing jazz music. At least eight people were brutally murdered. Who could have been responsible for this crime, and how was the Mafia connected? Did a corrupt police department intentionally leave this case unsolved? Come, if you dare, as Absolute Crime takes you on the hunt for one of the most brutal killers who ever lived.

A stunning, thought-provoking look at finding peace in children''s lives. Peace is a familiar word, its meaning both simple and complex.

The Legend of White Sky
White Sky''s brave, independent nature have helped her accomplish many goals, but will her greatest wish, to make her father proud, ever be fulfilled? Sioux twins White Sky and Little Wolf are convinced their roles were switched at birth. While Little Wolf is timid and ponderous like a maiden, White Sky is brave and adventurous like the warriors. When the time comes for Little Wolf to accomplish a great feat to establish his place in the village, he begs White Sky to find a way out of it. Her solution is to switch places, since their parents can only tell them apart by their differing personalities. So Little Wolf must become outgoing like his sister, and White Sky has to learn to tame her tongue. While this ultimate deception is difficult at first, the twins eventually grow into their new identities. Little Wolf studies the ways of Wovoka, the village medicine man, and becomes a successful healer. White Sky proves her fearless nature by taming a rattlesnake and a baby eagle. Due to inevitable changes, the truth of the twins'' identities comes out in the thirteenth year of their birth. Their father, Great Hunter, is outraged, but only with White Sky since the role reversal was her idea. He breaks White Sky''s beloved bow and arrow and gives away her horse. So that she will always remember her rightful place in the village, he then places a large amulet around her neck, which she must wear until she marries. Determined that she will never marry and that she will prove her worth to her father, White Sky vows to kill the grizzly bear Evil Claw and tame the elusive wild white stallion. What she doesn''t plan on is falling in love with a warrior from an enemy tribe. Will White Sky fulfill her promises to herself? Will The Legend of White Sky be forever etched upon the hearts of her people?

It looks at the murder, the suspects, and the ultimate outcome of one of the most notorious murders of all time.
