|New from||Used from|
"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

The illustrations may be, to our eyes, old-fashioned, but for me, that is the essence of their charm. Exquisitely colored, they are a delight.

“Alice and Alistair Have A Restaurant” is marvelous. Our nieces and nephews love the book. It is large enough for them to hold, and the illustrations are warm with a charming, old-fashioned flavor. The series depicts animal characters who, through their adventures, help and support each other.
The dedication of this title reads, “For those of us who are tempted to leap before we look.”
This is part of a delightful series that began with “Alice Mongoose and Alistair Rat in Hawaii” which shows how Alice, an adventurous mongoose, leaves her home in India and arrives in Hawaii. She meets and befriends Alistair Rat. Alice doesn't realize that Alistair (and all rats) are supposed to be her arch enemies, although Alistair and his Hawaiian family are well aware of this “rivalry.” This misunderstanding is part of the fun in the series.
In this particular title, since Alice and Alistair enjoy cooking for each other, they decide to open a restaurant to share meals with their friends. Surprises and misadventures take place as they learn the importance of cooperation and planning.
