Three recent and wonderful finds: Achilles was loved by Number Six who has recently finished the real thing and attests to its accuracy--and it comes with an audio CD!
The Story of Silk fascinated me--I realized I knew next to nothing about silk! Plus wonderful photographs throughout. It is told in the first person by National Geographic Magazine photographer. A winner of a book!
The last one is also by National Geographic and its a wonderful collection of animal poetry. If you have at home, like I do, both animal lovers and poetry lovers, this book will be greatly enjoyed!
