    Matar un Ruiseor

    Matar un Ruiseor
    Set in the small Southern town of Maycomb, Alabama, during the Depression, this story follows three years in the life of eight-year-old Scout Finch, her brother, Jem, and their father, Atticus. The three years are punctuated by the arrest and eventual trial of a young black man accused of raping a white woman. The result is a tough and tender novel of race, class, justice, and the pain of growing up, all through the eyes of a young girl. Robert Mulligan directed the film adaptation, which won an Oscar for best script (Horton Foote) and best actor (Gregory Peck).

    Looking for the Easy Life

    Looking for the Easy Life
    Life's pretty good on Monkey Island. All day long, the monkeys sit around talking their monkey talk and enjoying their big-time monkey dreams. That is, except Oswego Pete, who is one slick monkey. He's bent on finding the Easy Life—a place where a monkey never has to bend all out of shape for a banana, or do any hard work, ever. Is it where the high grass grows at the foot of the mountain? Or down by the seaside? Uh-Huh Freddie, the Chief Monkey, says easy isn't always good, and a little hard work's not always bad. Who's right? You will learn how to find the Easy Life in this witty adventure from popular author Walter Dean Myers and artist Lee Harper.
