As inventive as Agatha Christie, as hilarious as P.G. Wodehouse - discover the delightful detective stories of Edmund Crispin. Crime fiction at its quirkiest and best. Richard Cadogan, poet and would-be bon vivant, arrives for what he thinks will be a relaxing holiday in the city of dreaming spires. Late one night, however, he discovers the dead body of an elderly woman lying in a toyshop and is coshed on the head. When he comes to, he finds that the toyshop has disappeared and been replaced with a grocery store. The police are understandably skeptical of this tale but Richard's former schoolmate, Gervase Fen (Oxford professor and amateur detective), knows that truth is stranger than fiction (in fiction, at least). Soon the intrepid duo are careening around town in hot pursuit of clues but just when they think they understand what has happened, the disappearing-toyshop mystery takes a sharp turn…Erudite, eccentric and entirely delightful – Before Morse, Oxford's murders were solved by Gervase Fen, the most unpredictable detective in classic crime fiction.

Candide, by Voltaire: This is a Masterpiece Collection Book Club Edition publication. We have created an after chapter template for notes, character names, and general summary of the chapter. This helps the reader retain the information better. These books are great for not only bookclub readers. They are great for students, and casual readers as well. Having your own notes to draw from helps when writing a book report. Having a bookclub discussion about several chapters. It is great help remembering characters and their significance later in the book. These are not cheat books! We have not done the work for you. You have to read the book and you need to take the notes. Using the templates at the end of each chapter will give you a greater understanding of the work. I love to read and have read thousands of books, but I still forget things that happened hundreds of pages before. These books enable the reader to have a point of reference . Turning the corner of the page and highlighting can help, but returning to your own words helps so much more.
Since the dawn of children's television in the 1950s, toy companies have been keen to capitalise on the success of these programmes. Toy historian and collector Anthony A. McGoldrick here charts the history of the most successful TV toys from Muffin the Mule in the 1950s to Star Trek: The Next Generation in the 1980s. The colourful illustrations - whether of Daleks, iconic cars, action figures or spaceships - evoke the excitement of the programmes and also of playing with the toys that allowed children to recreate them. Whether you grew up in the days of Andy Pandy, The Saint, Kojak or Knight Rider, this book offers a nostalgic look at some of the most appealing toys of the late twentieth century.
