Nobel Peace Prize Winner. A peanut farmer and an obscure governor from the state of Georgia, Jimmy Carter was close to unknown until he ran for United States president in 1976. But throughout his presidency and in the years since he has left the White House, Jimmy Carter has worked so hard for peace -- even winning the Nobel Peace Prize -- that no on will ever ask, "Jimmy who?" again. Jimmy Carter is the world's peacemaker. He promotes human rights, social and economic justice, and works tirelessly with Habitat for Humanity to build housing for the poor and with the Carter Center to end hunger and wipe out diseases. This biography will reveal the man behind the name, and just how Jimmy Carter made the journey from a peanut farm in a tiny Georgia town to winning the Nobel Peace Prize.
Admiring Ms. Hanson's adorable new kitten, Sebastian, Eliza, Lisa, Abby, and Molly are horrified when Sebastian is nearly poisoned and wonder if the cantankerous, cat-hating Mrs. Gresham is responsible.
The first time I saw Belle was the day of the Animal Rescue Squad's Christmas shopping expedition. Eliza Spain, Lisa Ho, Abby Good¬man, and I, Molly Penrose--we're the Animal Rescue Squad--were on our way to Mr. Slattery's store. Slattery's is jam-packed with nice little things like candles and pottery and potpourri. I needed to get presents for my mother and my sister, and I wanted to scout out things for Eliza, Lisa, and Abby as well. Then we saw a dog.
Pepper and Jake love herding sheep in the little valley where they live. But there's a problem-- a big problem. Urk, a giant who lives on a nearby mountain, is big and stinky and doesn't care that dumping dirty laundry water in the nearby stream causes a flood down below every single week. So Pepper and Jake hike to Urk's mountaintop lair to confront him. But there's no reasoning with a giant, especially one who gives cryptic puzzles to solve. If the kids can solve it, Urk will move away. If not, Pepper and Jake (and their sheep) will be the featured ingredients in Urk's next bowl of smelly soup!
