Good and Mad

Good and Mad

Journalist Rebecca Traister's New York Times bestselling exploration of the transformative power of female anger and its ability to transcend into a political movement is ';a hopeful, maddening compendium of righteous feminine anger, and the good it can do when wielded efficientlyand collectively' (Vanity Fair).Long before Pantsuit Nation, before the Women's March, and before the #MeToo movement, women's anger was not only politically catalyticbut politically problematic. The story of female fury and its cultural significance demonstrates its crucial role in women's slow rise to political power in America, as well as the ways that anger is received when it comes from women as opposed to when it comes from men. ';Urgent, enlightenedrealistic and compellingTraister eloquently highlights the challenge of blaming not just forces and systems, but individuals' (The Washington Post). In Good and Mad, Traister tracks the history of female anger as political fuelfrom suffragettes marching on the White House to office workers vacating their buildings after Clarence Thomas was confirmed to the Supreme Court. Traister explores women's anger at both men and other women; anger between ideological allies and foes; the varied ways anger is received based on who's expressing it; and the way women's collective fury has become transformative political fuel. She deconstructs society's (and the media's) condemnation of female emotion (especially rage) and the impact of their resulting repercussions. Highlighting a double standard perpetuated against women by all sexes, and its disastrous, stultifying effect, Good and Mad is ';perfectly timed and inspiring' (People, Book of the Week). This ';admirably rousing narrative' (The Atlantic) offers a glimpse into the galvanizing force of women's collective anger, which, when harnessed, can change history.

What's the Matter with Newton?

What's the Matter with Newton?

It takes a lot to stand out at a school for mad scientists-but Newton Warp is unlike anyone (or anything) else at Franken-Sci High in this first book in a wacky series created with The Jim Henson Company.Franken-Sci High is the only school in the world for aspiring mad scientists and it's located on a craggy island in the Bermuda Triangle, of course! While some mad scientists are power-hungry maniacs, the school was founded in 1536 as a refuge for generations of brilliant-and yes, eccentric-young minds. Students are encouraged to use their brainpower for good, but the teachers accept that some kids will still want to take over the world...and the school cafeteria. In the first book in the series, What's the Matter with Newton?, Newton Warp is a mystery, even to himself: He wakes up one day in the library with no idea of who he is, how he got there, or where he came from. Newton is quickly assigned to a dorm and makes a friend: Shelly Ravenholt, who creates living, breathing monsters for fun. He's eager to find out who his family is, but this is high school after all, and he soon has other problems: Newton has to create a last-minute project for the Mad Science Fair and Shelly's friend Theremin (a robot) is really jealous of him. And that's not all: the other students at Franken-Sci High soon realize that Newton has a few useful, but surprising quirks. Wherever Newton came from, they start to suspect that he's not entirely human! TM & (c) 2019 The Jim Henson Company

The Deadly 7

The Deadly 7

Who needs friends when you've got MONSTERS?Everything was happening so fast and it was all so . . . mad. It was as if someone had taken reality, made it into a jigsaw, thrown the jigsaw on to the floor and then said, "Now, hurry up and put it all together!" as they danced all over the jigsaw pieces in a clown suit, blowing a trumpet.When Nelson's beloved big sister goes missing on a school trip, Nelson is devastated - he's not that good at making friends and his sister is the only person he can talk to. His parents join the search party and leave Nelson in the care of his mad uncle Pogo. Uncle Pogo is the caretaker of St Paul's Cathedral and it is here that Nelson stumbles across a machine, invented by Christopher Wren and buried for hundreds of years. Designed to extract the 7 deadly sins, the machine had a fault - once extracted, the sins became living, breathing monsters who would then follow the sinner around for eternity (unless they ate him first, in the case of the particularly sinful). Nelson accidentally extracts 7 deadly monsters from his own little soul. Ugly, cantankerous, smelly and often the cause of much embarrassment, Nelson's monsters are the last thing he needed in his life, but at least they're fairly harmless (he's a pretty good kid, on the whole). When he learns of their individual powers he realises the monsters can be put to good use, and together Nelson and the Deadly 7 set out on a quest across the globe to find and rescue his big sister. Somewhere along the way, Nelson realises that he finally has friends, even if they are smelly, lazy friends who like smashing stuff up.The Deadly 7 is a monster adventure by successful director Garth Jennings and is packed full of hilariously appealing illustrations.
