Dark fairy tales the characters of her fantasy world would have been told as children. Each tale is expertly woven, creepy, and has different layers of understanding depending on the age of the reader.

Barroux is French but grew up in Morocco. Very similar story to Room on our Rock but less complex

The Secret of the Night Train
Sylvia BishopOlder ReadersUK2018
Mystery / Adventure. An easy enough read for a 10 year old, but interesting enough for an older reader. A detective story that extolls the joy of travel as the mystery unfolds on a train between Paris and Istanbul. Sadly, there are 2 spelling mistakes in the first 24 pages and on page 226 one of the male characters states that he prefers men to women (romantically). This could be skimmed over but is good to be aware of. Peters books say "A little slow to start, and it lacks the requisite tension for a really good adventure, but the mystery plot comes together pleasingly and it has good shelf appeal. Worth stocking."

As Bill Gates says, "One of the most important books I've ever read..." that's how I feel. My teenage son and I discuss this book. I'm hoping every UWCSEA East graduate will get this book as their graduation gift this year!

This is a book dedicated to all Cantonese lovers. It celebrates Cantonese by highlighting the language's erudite vocabulary, melodious tone, and surprising etymology. The fun Cantonese flash cards, the beautiful Cantonese tongue twister, and the touching experience sharing of foreigners learning Cantonese shall warm the hearts of all Cantonese users.
