It may be the most interesting and yet loneliest spot on Earth: a volcanic rock surrounded by a million square miles of ocean, named for the day Dutch explorers discovered it, Easter Sunday, April 5, 1722. Here, people created a complex society, sophisticated astronomy, exquisite wood sculpture, monumental stone architecture, roads, and a puzzling ideographic script. And then they went about sculpting amazing, giant human figures in stone. This audiobook of the history, culture, and art of Easter Island is the first to examine in detail the island´s vernacular architecture, often overshadowed by its giant stone statues. It shows the conjecturally reconstructed prehistoric pole houses; the ahu, the sculptures´ platform, as a spectacular expression of prehistoric megalithic architecture; and the Easter Island Statue Project´s inventory of the colossal moai sculptures. 1.

‘I walk toward the sea. The endless surface of the water extends to the horizon, whichever way I look. Our world is small. We are on our own, and we only have ourselves to depend on. We rely on the Force deep within us, as taught to us by our forefathers. If I were to walk westward from here, I would come across a barrier - the Wall. Behind it, there are Fools. At least, that’s what everyone says. I have never seen one.’ Leia lives on the Island, a world in which children leave their parents to take care of themselves when they are ten years old. Across this Island runs a wall that no one has ever crossed. The Fools living behind it are not amenable to reason - they believe in illusions. That’s what The Book says, the only thing left to the Eastern Islanders by their ancestors. But when a strange man washes ashore and Leia meets a Fool face to face, her life will never be the same. Is what she and her friends believe about the Island really true? Or is everyone in their world, in fact, a Fool? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Coco Bell.

From a National Book Award finalist comes a lively new spin on the classic vampire tale. When old-world dangers threaten a race of fruit bat hybrids, where can they run to? New York City, of course! And that´s where we meet the Livingstone kids - Lexie, Hudson, and Maddy - trying to blend their ´´vampireness´´ with the regular people of the city. Unfortunately, their vampire traits keep complicating things. Lexie´s super speed, amazing strength, and poetry-quoting habit embarrass her in front of classmates - and her secret crush. Hudson can fly and is determined to save the planet, but with a vocabulary from the wrong century, he doesn´t quite fit in. And then there´s Maddy, who has a hard time sticking to her vegetarian diet, and an even harder time convincing her siblings that their new neighbors are vampires. With all these challenges, will Lexie, Hudson, and Maddy ever be able to navigate the normal world? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Cassandra Morris.
