And Zach…well, he hasn’t found his magical power yet and his family is growing worried that he’s been “skipped.” So his parents decide to stop homeschooling him in magical arts and send him instead to a regular middle school with regular kids. To Zach, it’s the worst news ever. Who wants to be ordinary when everyone around them is extraordinary? But Zach quickly learns that going to regular school with regular kids isn’t all that bad. Who knew having real friends would be so much fun? And just when Zach least expects it, he discovers a pair of magical snapbacks that might just be the magical thing he’s been looking for his whole life. The only thing standing in his way is the school bully, Tricia Stands. She’s determined to make sure Zach doesn’t get more popular than she is, and so she plans a prank so awful, so evil, it could cause the biggest disaster Horace Greeley Middle School has ever seen. For fans of Diary of a Wimpy Kid, Timmy Failure, and DanTDM: Trayaurus and the Enchanted Crystal and anyone who’s ever wondered where they belong, this is the perfect book for you.

Bien Cuit introduces a new but decidedly old-fashioned approach to bread baking to the cookbook shelf. In the ovens of his Brooklyn bakery, Chef Zachary Golper bakes loaves that have quickly won over New York's top restaurants and bread enthusiasts around the country. His secret: long, low-temperature fermentation, which allows the bread to develop deep, complex flavours and a thick, mahogany-coloured crust - what the French call bien cuit, or 'well baked'. Golper recreates classic breads for the home baker along with an assortment of innovative 'gastronomic breads'.

Moby-Dicklooms large in the world's imagination. But until the mid-1930s-eighty years after it first appeared in English-it remained unavailable in French. The Provenpal novelist Jean Giono fell in love with the book. He inspired his friend Lucien Jacques to join him in the project of rendering Melville's stirring prose. After they finished, their publisher persuaded Giono to write a preface. Giono was unwilling at first to accept-the translation had taken a few years to complete, and he was eager to move on. But he was brought around by the desire to introduce Melville to the French public. The result, issued as a separate volume in French, is an unparalleled intercultural creation, part preface, part biography, part philosophical rumination, part romance, part unfettered fantasy. The French publisher continues to classify it as oun essai,o a literary experiment. Melville- A Novelis an intimate homage from one great writer to another, across time and space, a true meeting of French and American minds. Paul Eprile's meticulous translation of this startling text brings the exchange full circle.

Privilege and Property
Author: Ronan Deazley, Martin Kretschmer, Lionel Bently
Publisher: Open Book Publishers
What can and can't be copied is a matter of law, but also of aesthetics, culture, and economics. The act of copying, and the creation and transaction of rights relating to it, evokes fundamental notions of communication and censorship, of authorship and ownership - of privilege and property. This volume conceives a new history of copyright law that has its roots in a wide range of norms and practices. The essays reach back to the very material world of craftsmanship and mechanical inventions of Renaissance Italy where, in 1469, the German master printer Johannes of Speyer obtained a five-year exclusive privilege to print in Venice and its dominions. Along the intellectual journey that follows, we encounter John Milton who, in his 1644 Areopagitica speech 'For the Liberty of Unlicensed Printing', accuses the English parliament of having been deceived by the 'fraud of some old patentees and monopolizers in the trade of bookselling' (i.e. the London Stationers' Company). Later revisionary essays investigate the regulation of the printing press in the North American colonies as a provincial and somewhat crude version of European precedents, and how, in the revolutionary France of 1789, the subtle balance that the royal decrees had established between the interests of the author, the bookseller, and the public, was shattered by the abolition of the privilege system. Contributions also address the specific evolution of rights associated with the visual and performing arts. These essays provide essential reading for anybody interested in copyright, intellectual history and current public policy choices in intellectual property. The volume is a companion to the digital archive Primary Sources on Copyright (1450-1900), funded by the UK Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC): www.copyrighthistory.org.

Zack didn't know what had possessed him—a man who'd stopped believing in fairy tales a lifetime ago—to come to this damsel's rescue. But something told him that this ready-made family might finally teach him to say three very important little words….

Pas de Deux
Author: Lynn Turner
It's said the artist is born of a damaged soul...Wilhelmina Allende is a prima ballerina. When tragedy turns her beloved Paris into a gilded cage, she jumps at the chance to work with one of the most prolific choreographers she's ever seen. But Zack's style is way out of her comfort zone. So is his teaching method. And his humor. And his everything. He's a charming little connard. It's hard not to like him. Merde. What has she gotten herself into?Zachary Coen's first musical is opening on Broadway. Much like his life, it's anything but conventional, so hiring Mina is simply out of the question. She's too...classical. Too perfect. She's all wrong for the role. Then he meets her in person and sees her cracks. Her broken pieces. How unique and beautiful each one is. And he can't help but notice how her edges seem to fit his...perfectly.Just when teaming up seems to be working, the monsters they've kept hidden threaten to rip it all apart.**Possible trigger warning: The hero is a child sexual assault survivor. He uses a coping mechanism throughout the story, and is triggered in a scene toward the end. (It doesn't get explicit, but it is not glossed over.)**

"From the highly acclaimed, multiple award-winning Anthony Doerr, a stunningly ambitious and beautiful novel about a blind French girl and a German boy whose paths collide in occupied France as both try to survive the devastation of World War II. Marie Laure lives with her father in Paris within walking distance of the Museum of Natural History where he works as the master of the locks (there are thousands of locks in the museum). When she is six, she goes blind, and her father builds her a model of their neighborhood, every house, every manhole, so she can memorize it with her fingers and navigate the real streets with her feet and cane. When the Germans occupy Paris, father and daughter flee to Saint-Malo on the Brittany coast, where Marie-Laure's agoraphobic great uncle lives in a tall, narrow house by the sea wall. In another world in Germany, an orphan boy, Werner, grows up with his younger sister, Jutta, both enchanted by a crude radio Werner finds. He becomes a master at building and fixing radios, a talent that wins him a place at an elite and brutal military academy and, ultimately, makes him a highly specialized tracker of the Resistance. Werner travels through the heart of Hitler Youth to the far-flung outskirts of Russia, and finally into Saint-Malo, where his path converges with Marie-Laure. Doerr's gorgeous combination of soaring imagination with observation is electric. Deftly interweaving the lives of Marie-Laure and Werner, Doerr illuminates the ways, against all odds, people try to be good to one another. Ten years in the writing, All the Light We Cannot See is his most ambitious and dazzling work"--
