Raised like sisters, Mariamne and Salome are indulged with riches, position, and learning-a rare thing for females in Jerusalem. But Mariamne has a further gift: an illness has left her with visions; she has the power of prophecy. It is her prophesying that drives the two girls to flee to Egypt, where they study philosophy, mathematics, and astronomy in the Great Library of Alexandria. After seven years they return to a Judaea where many now believe John the Baptizer is the messiah. Salome too begins to believe, but Mariamne, now called Magdalene, is drawn to his cousin, Yeshu’a, a man touched by the divine in the same way she was during her days of illness. Together they speak of sharing their direct experience of God; but Yeshu’a unexpectedly gains a reputation as a healer, and as the ill and the troubled flock to him, he and Magdalene are forced to make a terrible decision. This radical retelling of the greatest story ever told brings Mary Magdalene to life-not as a prostitute or demon-possessed-but as an educated woman who was truly the “apostle to the apostles.”

Ideal for bedtime reading! "My son aged 6 reviewed this for me and he loved it! It totally engrossed him he kept telling me to sssh if I interrupted him and he said it was very exciting. High praise indeed. He said it 'was a really good fun book' I had a brief read through and I absolutely adored the character filled illustrations, so simple and so delightful. The writing holds your attention, zips along and is funny! The author suggests probably 7-12 is the right reading age for the book but at 6 and 30 something we loved it too!" Becky Goddard-Hill, Book Reviews for Mums. Gatwick's story: "I'm nothing like any other bear. First of all, I have an unbearable name. You might have already seen me stomping around the airport named after me. (Or, was I named after the airport?) Whatever! If you've never seen me, you need to look around more carefully next time you're in departures – I might be there! You'll recognise me because my fur is mega-ruffled at the back and super-tidy at the front. Oh, yes, also I have a navy-blue waistcoat sewn on me like those once worn by old-fashioned bears. "Until I was spotted over the CCTV system by security I had quite a boring little life at the airport. But all that changed suddenly when I boarded a plane while being hunted down by the vicious Miss Acid, the Head of Security. And, soon after, I got caught up in the dangerous world of top secret agents. "Will I go back to living the sorry life of poverty at Gatwick Airport, or am I made for grander things? Read my story to find out!"

The English-born American author Hugh Lofting was the creator of the beloved children's character of Doctor Dolittle, the eccentric, yet genial physician that can talk to the animals. The genesis of the series appeared in illustrated letters sent by Lofting to his children, while he was undergoing the horrors of the trenches in World War I, when news was “too horrible” to send. The Dolittle books are celebrated for their charming wit and the humorous treatment of the doctor’s bachelor household in Puddleby-on-the-Marsh. However, Lofting’s works provide a recurring message of pacifism and censure of warmongering, which is most evident in Lofting’s anti-war poem ‘Victory for the Slain’. For the first time in publishing history, this edition presents Lofting’s complete works, with numerous illustrations, rare texts and concise introductions. (Version 1) * Beautifully illustrated with images relating to Lofting’s life and works * Concise introductions to the novels and other texts * All of the Doctor Dolittle books, including ALL of Lofting’s original illustrations * Rare novels appearing for the first time in digital publishing * Images of how the books were first published, giving your eReader a taste of the original texts * Excellent formatting of the texts * Lofting’s other children’s books, digitised here for the first time, including ‘Porridge Poetry’ and ‘Noisy Nora’ * Lofting’s works for adults – available in no other collection * Includes the 1924 pacifist essay ‘Children and Internationalism’ * The anti-war poem ‘Victory for the Slain’ * Ordering of texts into chronological order and genres Please visit www.delphiclassics.com to browse through our range of exciting titles CONTENTS: The Doctor Dolittle Books The Story of Doctor Dolittle (1920) The Voyages of Doctor Dolittle (1922) Doctor Dolittle’s Post Office (1923) Doctor Dolittle’s Circus (1924) Doctor Dolittle’s Zoo (1925) Doctor Dolittle’s Caravan (1926) Doctor Dolittle’s Garden (1927) Doctor Dolittle in the Moon (1928) Gub Gub’s Book (1932) Doctor Dolittle’s Return (1933) Doctor Dolittle and the Secret Lake (1948) Doctor Dolittle and the Green Canary (1950) Doctor Dolittle’s Puddleby Adventures (1952) Other Children’s Books The Story of Mrs. Tubbs (1923) Porridge Poetry (1924) Noisy Nora (1929) The Twilight of Magic (1930) Tommy, Tilly, and Mrs. Tubbs (1936) Works for Adults Children and Internationalism (1924) Victory for the Slain (1942) Please visit www.delphiclassics.com to browse through our range of exciting titles or to purchase this eBook as a Parts Edition of individual eBooks

A new cookbook/survival guide/love letter to Montreal for these apocalyptic times, from the James Beard Award–nominated culinary adventurists and proprietors of the beloved restaurant, Joe Beef. “The first Joe Beef cookbook changed forever what a cookbook could be. Anything that came after had to take it into account. Now, with this latest and even more magnificent beast, the rogue princes of Canadian cuisine and hospitality show us the way out of the numbing, post-apocalyptic restaurant Hell of pretentiousness and mediocrity that threatens to engulf us all. It makes us believe that the future is shiny, bright, beautiful, delicious—and probably Québécois. This book will change your life.” —Anthony Bourdain It’s the end of the world as we know it. Or not. Either way, you want Joe Beef: Surviving the Apocalypse in your bunker and/or kitchen. In their much-loved first cookbook, Frédéric Morin, David McMillan, and Meredith Erickson introduced readers to the art of living the Joe Beef way. Now, they’re back with another deeply personal, refreshingly unpretentious collection of more than 150 new recipes, some taken directly from the menus of Fred and Dave’s acclaimed Montreal restaurants, others from summers spent on Laurentian lakes and Sunday dinners at home. Think Watercress Soup with Trout Quenelles, Artichokes Bravas, and seasonal variations on Pot-au-Feu—alongside Smoked Meat Croquettes, a Tater Tot Galette, and Squash Sticky Buns. Also included are instructions for making your own soap and cough drops, not to mention an epic 16-page fold-out gatefold with recipes and guidance for stocking a cellar with apocalyptic essentials (Canned Bread, Pickled Pork Butt, and Smoked Apple Cider Vinegar) for throwing the most sought-after in-bunker dinner party Filled with recipes, reflections, and ramblings, in this book you’ll find chapters devoted to the Québécois tradition of celebrating Christmas in July, the magic of public television, and Fred and Dave’s unique take on barbecue (Burnt-End Bourguignon, Cassoulet Rapide), as well as ruminations on natural wine and gluten-free cooking, and advice on how children should behave at dinner. Whether you’re holing up for a zombie holocaust or just cooking at home, Joe Beef is a book about doing it yourself, about making it on your own, and about living—or at least surviving—in style.

And if that wasn’t enough each of the animals in the Dolittle family tells a touching personal story. Charming and lovable. This edition is illustrated with over 75 of Lofting's original images.
