Tyrannosaurus Ralph from the Author: Nate Evans. Ralph is just trying to get home from school without getting picked on by the local bully. He's not trying to run smack into that bully. He's also not trying to wake up hours later in the body of a Tyrannosaurus Rex. And he's DEFINITELY not trying to do battle in an alien arena in order to save Earth from the evil Cloberus Crunch. Unfortunately for Ralph, this is exactly what happens. Armed only with a new body (with very tiny arms) and his wits, Ralph is expected to not only defend himself and his planet in hand-to-hand combat with ferocious aliens, he must also navigate a new world filled with all sorts of creatures Ralph has never imagined, in which it can be difficult to tell friend from foe. This zany, hilarious story will appeal to anyone who loves dinosaurs, aliens, and adventure.

Mein L Wenkind from the Author: Elena Pirin. Leo ist ein wunderbarer kleiner Mensch. Er macht sich prima, nur nicht in dem Tempo, das die Entwicklungstests und Schulpläne vorgeben. Als Elena Pirin und ihr Mann das Baby adoptieren, ahnen sie nicht, dass ihr Wunschkind entwicklungsverzögert ist. Leo zeigt Defizite in der Koordination und der Wahrnehmung, hängt im Lernen weit hinterher. Auch plagen ihn unerwartete Panikattacken. Elena Pirin liebt ihren heute zehnjährigen Sohn über alles, doch manchmal verzagt sie an den Schwierigkeiten, die der Alltag mit einem behinderten Kind mit sich bringt. Mit einer guten Mischung aus Humor und Ernst beschreibt sie, wie sie ihren Sohn in seiner Andersartigkeit annimmt und ihm hilft, sich selbst anzunehmen. Ein packend erzähltes Buch, das berührt, zum Lachen bringt und Mut macht.

Wind Spirit from the Author: Aimée Thurlo. Before the new nuclear power plant can be built, the power company must help the Navajo reclaim a long-unused uranium mine. The plan is to collapse the old shafts and refill the area with new soil, but the first explosions trigger unplanned subsidiary collapses. Ella Clah, attending the dedication and purification ceremony, acts quickly when she sees a young child sliding into the exposed tunnels. She saves his life but is herself trapped underground. A few days later, Ella, little the worse for her nightmarish near-death experience, is checking out reports of vandalism and arson. It seems that gun control advocates on the Rez have made some enemies-enemies who soon kill for the first time, when an arson fire claims the life of the wife of a Navajo Councilmember. The home of local radio host George Branch--who may have incited the fatal arson-burns to the ground, destroying all of Branch's personal possessions, including his extensive gun collection. Ella's investigations are hampered by what happened to her at the uranium site. Both her brother Clifford, a Navajo medicine man, and her cousin and fellow Navajo Police officer, Justine Goodluck, are convinced that Ella wasn't just unconscious when she was rescued. To all appearances, they say, Ella was dead. Justine believes that Ella's survival was a miracle; Clifford says that his hataalii abilities showed her wandering wind spirit the way back to her body. Regardless, traditionalist Navajo are reluctant to be near or even speak to Ella, fearing that since she was dead, she has been contaminated with chindi and become evil. Even some of her fellow police officers are uncomfortable in Ella's presence. If she cannot interview witnesses and can't work with other cops, what is Ella to do? She finds solace in the unquestioning and unchanging love of her young daughter and the unflagging support of her brother, who nonetheless recommends an older hataalii who may be able to perform a special blessing ceremony for Ella. Still, it's clear that Ella's life has been changed, perhaps permanently, and that she may no longer be an effective police officer.

White Thunder from the Author: Aimée Thurlo. FBI area supervisor Simmons asks the Navajo Tribal Police to help locate Andrew Thomas, a federal agent who disappeared after interrupting a Navajo ritual being performed by a group of medicine men or hataaliis. Simmons voices his displeasure when Special Investigator Ella Clah is assigned to the case; he believes that Ella became an FBI agent, more than a decade earlier, due to affirmative action-and that she left because the job was too tough for her. Ella ignores Simmons' pettiness, knowing that finding the missing man is the highest priority. She won't allow family issues to get in the way, so she asks her daughter's father to become a full-time parent for the duration of her investigation. She even questions her brother, a hataalii himself, about Agent Thomas. Could a medicine man have punished Thomas for disturbing the Sing? Startlingly, Ella receives a disturbing cell phone call that seems to be from Thomas himself. He's trapped in a dark place, lost and hurt. Ella realizes that time is running out. With the hataaliis cleared, Ella follows up on Thomas's investigation into Social Security fraud. She is disturbed to see evidence that seems to point to her old friend and Thomas's immediate superior, FBI agent Blalock. Could Blalock steal money and assault one of his own men? Ella can't believe it. The fraud trail leads through a maze of paperwork, banks, government offices, mortuaries, and into the Navajos' most dearly held-beliefs about death. Only by finding the truth-and fast-will Ella be able to save Andrew Thomas. At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

Ella Clah is no longer an unsure young woman recently returned to the Navajo Reservation from a stint with the FBI; she has found her place in her tribe, her clan, and her family.

When Benally is attacked and another man is killed, Yellowhair orders Navajo Police Special Investigator Ella Clah assigned to the case.

Coyote's Wife, which introduces a new source of tension in Ella's personal life, will satisfy both the returning reader and those new to this series.
