Product Description: Every Sunday after church, CJ and his grandma ride the bus across town. But today, CJ wonders why they don't own a car like his friend Colby. Why doesn't he have an iPod like the boys on the bus? How come they always have to get off in the dirty part of town? Each question is met with an encouraging answer from grandma, who helps him see the beauty-and fun-in their routine and the world around them. This energetic ride through a bustling city highlights the wonderful perspective only grandparent and grandchild can share, and comes to life through Matt de la Pena's vibrant text and Christian Robinson's radiant illustrations.

<b>“Other names besides [Herman] Melville’s will surely come to mind as you read this thrilling tale—there’s <i>Dune</i>’s Frank Herbert. . . . But in this, as in all of his works, Miéville has that special knack for evoking other writers even while making the story wholly his own.”—<i>Los Angeles Times</i></b><br /> <b> </b><br /> On board the moletrain <i>Medes,</i> Sham Yes ap Soorap watches in awe as he witnesses his first moldywarpe hunt: the giant mole bursting from the earth, the harpoonists targeting their prey, the battle resulting in one’s death & the other’s glory. Spectacular as it is, Sham can’t shake the sense that there is more to life than the endless rails of the railsea—even if his captain thinks only of hunting the ivory-colored mole that took her arm years ago. But when they come across a wrecked train, Sham finds something—a series of pictures hinting at something, somewhere, that should be impossible—that leads to considerably more than he’d bargained for. Soon he’s hunted on all sides, by pirates, trainsfolk, monsters & salvage-scrabblers. & it might not be just Sham’s life that’s about to change. It could be the whole of the railsea.<br /> <b> </b><br /> <b><i>NEW YORK TIMES </i>BESTSELLER</b><br /> <b> </b><br /> “[Miéville] gives all readers a lot to dig into here, be it emotional drama, <i>Godzilla</i>-esque monster carnage, or the high adventure that comes only with riding the rails.”—<i>USA Today</i><br /> <i> </i><br /> “Superb . . . massively imaginative.”—<i>Publishers Weekly</i> (starred review)<br />  <br /> “Riveting . . . a great adventure.”—NPR<br />  <br /> “Wildly inventive . . . Every sentence is packed with wit.”—<i>The Guardian </i>(London)

Dive! World War II Stories of Sailors & Submarines in the Pacific tells the incredible story of America's little known "war within a war" -- US submarine warfare during World War II.<br /> <br />Following the attack on Pearl Harbor, the US entered World War II in December 1941 with only 44 Naval submarines -- many of them dating from the 1920s. With the Pacific battleship fleet decimated after Pearl Harbor, it was up to the feisty and heroic sailors aboard the US submarines to stop the Japanese invasion across the Pacific. <br /><br />Including breakouts highlighting submarine life and unsung African-American and female war heroes, award-winning author Deborah Hopkinson uses first-person accounts, archival materials, official Naval documents, and photographs to bring the voices and exploits of these brave service members to life.
