Freddy, the smallest and cleverest of the pigs on Bean Farm, is 'a pig of many parts, a paragon of porkers' (The New York Times). Detective, politician, ambassador to the Martians-whatever the situation requests, Freddy fits the bill. There's never a dull moment for Freddy and the other animals on Bean Farm, who are 'as fast-mouthed and sharply funny as the Marx Brothers, as aphoristic and gimlet-eyed as astute as Noel Coward, and yet always affectionate and forgiving' (The Globe and Mail). Freddy the Pig, the 'Renaissance Pig' (The New York Times) of Bean Farm, is back to thrill his fans of all ages in these all-American children's classics. The Story of Freginald is another classic from Walter R. Brooks. This exciting tale is of a bear named Freginald who joins the famous Boomschmidt Circus and becomes known as the bear that recites poetry. Together with his new friend, Leo the Lion, Freginald sets off to find other unusual animal acts for the circus. The two friends are taken prisoner by a group of renegade farm animals and the entire circus must come to their rescue. A thrilling battle, a rival circus, and a strange mystery that can only be solved by Freddy the Detective all make for a rollicking tale for Freddy and Brooks fans everywhere.

The Great American Novel
34,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

With The Great American Novel: Selected Visual Poetry (2001-2019), Eileen Tabios not only presents 19 years of her forays into visual poetry, but takes the reader on an extremely personal journey of exploration of cultural identity, the ramifications of colonialism, the functions of language and the possibilities of connectivity in love and pain where each poem acts as a poignant marker along the way. Each sequence in this collection vastly differs-from asemic chance operations composed of Tabios's plucked white hairs let fall into place (recalling how Duchamp composed 3 Standard Stoppages) to a description of each poem-object in a destroyed mail art correspondence of sculptural visual poems. Tabios's openness to possibility has created poems radiating with life which are as heavy as they are celebratory. If you're looking for bubblegum, move on-here is something entirely different for your eyes to chew on. -Sacha Archer, author of Detour Eileen Tabios takes part by taking apart then seaming beyond seeming. Commas as visuals take form, flight, shape. Real lines of once alive things plucked from hair inventing poetry without genuflection. Achromotricia re(de)fines asemia, emerging a new version of whiteness against cloth backdrops. Finding poetry as poetry is. Eileen asserts in natural form the joining of worlds by being knowing learning doing becoming fascinated by what creates itself around her as she fascinates us by what she makes herself. -Sheila E. Murphy, author of Reporting Live From You Know Where I immediately got attracted to the first images, documenting an installation titled 'Pilipinz Cloudygenous.' Then I read the notes, and went back to the images. The effect got stronger and stronger. While the mobiles of say, Fischli & Weiss, are about the funny chain of causality, Tabios' work is about a funnily represented, rather absurd, but still functioning chain-leading back to the sources. 'Hanging (from a ceiling),' roots in the sky. -Márton Koppány, author of Endgames

Touch of Roy and Dale
17,49 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

When author Tricia Spencer acquired 40,000 pieces of fan mail from the Rogers' estate, she discovered much more than typical fan adulation. Nestled amidst never-before-seen photos, poetry, art and songs were amazing personal Roy and Dale stories. The 1990s letters were written when Roy and Dale began facing health challenges, and in spite of it being nearly a half a century beyond their Hollywood heyday, fans rallied to express just how much their American heroes had influenced and altered the paths of their lives. Additionally, Ms. Spencer invited Roy and Dale's children, family friends, western silver screen stars, western authors, and others to pen their own personal essays for the book. Elton John and Bernie Taupin's Roy Rogers song, the sketch art of stuntman and famed western artist, Walt LaRue, and memories shared by celebrity friends blend seamlessly with the expression and imaginative artistic creations of Roy and Dale's cherished fans. Many words have been devoted to Roy Rogers and Dale Evans, but never before have those words been gathered into the revelation that is The Touch of Roy and Dale. A book for all generations, it easily answers the question: What is a hero? Roy and Dale's greatest accomplishment was never their celebrity. As the collective voices of this book so poignantly, sometimes humorously, sometimes rawly, reveal, it was their uncommon and generous humanity that made them heroes. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this book benefits Roy and Dale's charity, The Happy Trails Children's Foundation.
