Whimsical and revolutionary poems and art by some of Russia's foremost avant-garde writers and illustrators A boy wants a toy horse big enough to ride, but where can his father find it? Not in the stores, which means it’s got to be built from scratch. How? With the help of expert workers, from the carpenter to the painter, working together as one. And now the bold boy is ready to ride off in defense of the future! Two trams, Click and Zam, are cousins. Click goes out for a day on the tracks and before long he’s so tired he doesn’t know where he is or how to get back. All he knows is he’s got to find Zam. Click is looking for Zam and Zam is looking for Click, and though for a while it seems like nobody knows where to find Click, good and faithful Zam is not to be deterred. Peter’s a car, Vasco’s a steamboat, and Mikey’s a plane. They’re all running like mad and going great guns until, whoops, there’s a big old cow, just a plain old cow, standing in the road. What then? The early years of the Soviet Union were a golden age for children’s literature. The Fire Horse brings together three classics from the era in which some of Russia’s most celebrated poets, Vladimir Mayakovsky, Osip Mandelstam, and Daniil Kharms, teamed up with some of its finest artists, Lidia Popova, Boris Ender, and Vladimir Konashevich. Brilliantly translated by the poet Eugene Ostashevsky, this is poetry that is as whimsical and wonderful as it is revolutionary.

Leaving his home in China, Chi Wei, is pursuing a dream of a better life in Gum San, the Gold Mountain, or California. After working many long hours doing laundry for the townspeople, he has finally saved enough money to purchase a horse to help him with his business. He soon discovers that Old Charlie has a mind of his own and seemingly does not want to be a "retired" fire horse. Old Charlie stubbornly and defiantly continues to escape to the local firehouse at every opportunity to ring the fire bell. Poor, frustrated Chi Wei is at wits' end, thinking maybe it is best to return Old Charlie to the fire brigade. Find out what Chi Wei decides to do and discover how an old, proud horse like Old Charlie brings opportunity, adventure, and friendship to his new owner. Old Charlie, the Fire Horse is based on the antics of a legendary fire horse that actually lived and served the local fire brigade in the Gold Country in the 1860s. This story gives young minds a glimpse into what America looked like during the Gold Rush days in California. This is D. L. Yamada's second book that utilizes the California Gold Rush period as a backdrop for her stories.

Both books were written with the intention of shedding light on the lives of the many Chinese sojourners who left their homeland in the nineteenth century and became a significant part of America's landscape and history.

Preston Fawkes is ten the first time he meets fifteen-year-old Konrad Schnell at the San Antonio Polo Club. Captivated by the mystique surrounding the sport of kings, Pres vows to learn the game at the hands of his newly acquired friend and mentor. The hero worship soon grows into something deeper, but the friends are separated when Preston goes off to boarding school in England. The relationship that follows is riddled with challenges their age gap, physical distance, and parental pressure taking precedence over feelings yet to be explored. Although their bond goes deep, they deal with the reality of their situation differently: Preston is open and fearless while Konrad is reticent and all too aware of the social implications of making a public stand. Their paths intersect and twine, binding them as tightly as a cowboy's lasso, but fate may alter their plans. How will love overcome the divots in the turf as they gallop toward the future-one where obstacles no longer stand in their way?

If ever a horse seemed fated to die young, it was Neville Bardos. Unwanted as a racehorse, he appeared a likely candidate for the glue factory. Through luck and hard work, he dodged that bad ending to become a surprise contender for the 2012 U.S. Olympic team in equestrian eventing. Then, on May 30, 2011, the barn he shared with ten other horses began to burn. Neville's lungs were scorched black, and he faced the fight of his life just to survive. Future glory was surely nothing but an empty dream. Or was it? "The Fire Horse" is the true story of a friendship between horse and rider so strong that it has carried them through their respective hard times to the brink of legend. Australian Boyd Martin saw a streak of potential no one else had seen in the stubborn and unpredictable horse. He bought him for $850 and named him, fittingly, after a notorious local gangster. And so began a relationship that had its share of ups and downs. Martin was something of a long shot himself, having once pretended to be an expert on breaking horses on the basis of a single book he read on the way to taking a job as a trainer. Over the years, he and Neville developed a hard-won appreciation for each other and appeared to be on the verge of success on the competitive equestrian circuit when the unthinkable happened. Now they're in London as members of the U.S. Olympic team. "The Fire Horse," by bestselling author Elizabeth Mitchell, is the deeply moving chronicle of a horse and his rider and their determined rise from the ashes. ABOUT THE AUTHOR Elizabeth Mitchell is the author of the nonfiction books "Three Strides Before the Wire: The Dark and Beautiful World of Horse Racing" and "W.: Revenge of the Bush Dynasty" (both from Hyperion). Her bestselling Byliner Original e-single "The Fearless Mrs. Goodwin" is a reported historical narrative. Mitchell was executive editor of "George" magazine and features editor at "Spin" magazine. She lives in Brooklyn, New York. PRAISE FOR "THE FIRE HORSE" Elizabeth Mitchell has crafted far more than a tale about a gifted horse and rider in the world of eventing. This is the heartwarming story about an imperishable bond between a man and his horse-one that began when Boyd Martin acquired a failed racehorse off the track, turned him into an eventing star, and then saved the life of this game and gutsy charge when he was trapped in his burning stall during a terrible stable fire. Neville Bardos's remarkable comeback under the devoted Martin, as a U.S. Olympic hopeful in the 2012 eventing competition, gives the tale an ending as warm and unlikely as any in equine literature." -William Nack, author of "Secretariat: The Making of a Champion"

The most significant changes in our times within the past ten years is that the cold war thought to be truly over has even reversed as the proliferation of nuclear weapons has increased drastically. It is now that we can comprehend a loud-iron-flying-fast-hyacinth-human-driven-horse-with riders prepared for war, having glittery fiery breastplates possessing the ability to destroy a large part of the world's population in an instant (by smoke, fire, and brimstone that shoots forth out of its mouth). It is now we can understand the loud rumble in the sound of a metal winged horse destroying everything in front and behind as Joel has said. The problem we have in our generation is that this is not a privilege of just a few powerful countries, but even now smaller countries like Pakistan who have modified the F-15 Jets to carry nukes. Other countries like India have recently loaded nukes onto Jets for the first time in 2017
