"How brave are you, little Annemarie?" Uncle Henrik asks his ten-year-old niece. It is 1943, and to Annemarie Johansen, life in Copenhagen is a complicated mix of ordinary home and school life, food shortages, and the constant presence of Nazi soldiers. Bravery seems a vague virtue - one possessed by dragon-slaying knights in the bedtime stories she tells her younger sister, Kristi. Too soon, she herself is called upon for courage.

As the German troops begin their campaign to "relocate" all the Jews of Denmark, the Johansens take in Annemarie's best friend, Ellen Rosen, and pretend she is part of the family. Ellen and Annemarie must think quickly when three Nazi officers arrive late one night and question why Ellen is not blond, like her sisters.

Through Annemarie's eyes, we see the Danish Resistance as they manage to smuggle almost the entire Jewish population, nearly 7,000 people, across the sea to Sweden. In this tale of an entire nation's heroism, Lois Lowry reminds us that there is pride and human decency in the world even during a time of terror and war. Recommended for ages 8 to 12. The 1990 Newbery Medal winner.

Born between a board fence and a set of trash cans, the hero of this absorbing new novel by Newbery Medalist Lois Lowry is a lowly stray dog. Seperated from his family and abandoned at an early age by his mother, he faces every challenge with his nose upturned and lustrous tail held high. His journey out of puppyhood, in which he becomes the loyal companion to a homeless man, discovers an ear for poetry, and meets his match in his brutal rival, Scar, is a story of perserverence in a world of danger and unexpected opportunity. But through it all, he cannot forget his frail little sister, Wispy, and he will not rest until he finds her again. Told with humor and keen insight into both canine and human behavior, the story of this proud survivor will delight dog lovers and adventure lovers alike.

Thus begins this haunting story in which a boy inhabits a seemingly ideal world: a world without conflict, poverty, unemployment, divorce, injustice, or inequality. It is a time in which family values are paramount, teenage rebellion is unheard of, and even good manners are a way of life. December is the time of the annual Ceremony at which each twelve-year old receives a life assignment determined by the Elders. Jonas watches his friend Fiona named Caretaker of the Old and his cheerful pal Asher labeled the Assistant Director of Recreation. But Jonas has been chosen for something special. When his selection leads him to an unnamed man--the man called only the Giver--he begins to sense the dark secrets that underlie the fragile perfection of his world.

Told with deceptive simplicity, this is the provocative story of a boy who experiences something incredible and undertakes something impossible. In the telling it questions every value we have taken for granted and reexamines our most deeply held beliefs. Unabridged. Read by Ron Rifkin. 4 CDs. 4 hours, 48 minutes.

Anastasia had a small pink wart on her left thumb. It appeared shortly after her tenth birthday and was only one of the things that were important about that year. Some of those things were good. Like falling in love with Washburn Cumming, who had a fantastic way of walking. And really getting to know her grandmother, who was ninety-two and lived in a nursing home and could never remember her granddaughter's name. And some of the things were awful. Like being the only girl in the fourth grade with a name too long to fit across a tee shirt without disappearing into her armpits. And then there was this matter of an impending baby brother. There was no room for him, as Anastasia pointed out to her parents. And what's more, he was entirely unnecessary. So when they told Anastasia she could name the new baby when the time came, she wrote in the back of her green notebook the most terrible name she could think of. Anastasia was prepared.

It's bad enough to be humiliated, thirteen-year-old Anastasia Krupnik realizes. But to be humiliated in front of the world's most glamorous gym teacher - and while wearing a royal blue gym suit? That's the pits. Now that she's decided to become a journalist, life's questions ought to be pretty easy to answer, Anatasia thinks. A journalist, after all, simply responds to the who, what, when, where, and why of every situation. But why are Daphne Bellingham's parents getting a divorce? Is it Daphne's fault? And why - WHY - is Anastasia the most physically uncoordinated person ever to set foot in a junior high gym? Once again Lois Lowry's wonderful and irrepressible Anastasia has the answers.
