Aldous Huxley’s tour de force, Brace New Wold is a darkly satiric vision of a “utopian” future — where humans are genetically bred and pharmaceutically anesthetized to passicely serve a ruling order. A powerful work of speculative fiction that has enthralled and terrified readers for generations, it remains remarkably relevant to this day as both a warning to be heeded as we head into tomorrow and as thought-provoking, satisfying entertainment.

You’ll find every sort of creature that lives beneath the sea swimming through the pages of this book.
There are dolphins, whales, and penguins. There are jellyfish and sharks. There’s the turtle and the big white polar bear.
But can you see behind the wrecks and in between the rocks? Let’s take a look and find who’s hiding there?
ROAR! Now I’ve got your attention, can I interest you in a book of poems about dinosaurs?
Though they went extinct 65 million years ago, dinosaurs are still everywhere. They’re on TV in The Land Before Time, in classrooms and museum collections, but it might still be hard to believe that dinosaurs walked here once. The poets in this anthology bring dinosaurs out of their display cases and into your home, and ask them politely to be careful with the carpet.
This book is approximately for children aged 8+.
