Book Summary: A rollicking mystery with an unexpected hero, this fully-illustrated chapter book continues the adventures of Ghoulia, a lovable, not-so-scary zombie. One dark and stormy night, Ghoulia’s cousin Dilbert comes to visit her at Crumbling Manor. She’s confused—she didn’t invite him, and it turns out that Dilbert’s a real grouch. He complains about everything! When Ghoulia tries to track down Auntie Departed to find out why she invited Dilbert, she finds that Auntie has vanished. Ghoulia can’t find her. And the doorbell won’t stop ringing. One after another, Ghoulia’s friends arrive—all with the same mysterious invitation in hand. As the gang searches Crumbling Manor for Auntie Departed, one of their own goes missing. Finally, Dilbert inadvertently solves the mystery in the greenhouse when he finds himself face-to-face with the sinister Chatterbox Ivy. Clue meets Little Shop of Horrors in this fun romp, which includes full-color illustrations and kid-friendly activities.

Book Summary: Donald Jones' walking tours of Toronto have drawn crowds of up to 5000 at a time. His 'Historic Toronto' column in the Star has proved one of the city's most widely read newspaper features. Now for the first time he has gathered together some of his personal favourites – stories of triumph and treachery, the celebrated and the notorious. The result is a richly entertaining collage of amazing and amusing tales of the city and its people. Here we learn that the first airmail plane in Canada landed in Toronto so loaded with liquor it could barely fly. We find out how a forgery by John Strachan brought tens of thousands of immigrants to the city. Jones recounts the visits to Toronto by great writers, including Oscar Wilde and Charles Dickens, and tells of Torontonians who made international names for themselves, like Bea Lillie and Elizabeth Arden. Old mysteries still unsolved are reconsidered: Was the founder of Upper Canada College the real hero of the battle of Waterloo? How did Prince George, remembered in the name of the Princes' Gates, really die? Did Toronto's Captain Roy Brown in fact kill the Red Baron during 'the most controversial 60 seconds in the history of aerial warfare'? At the heart of his stories are people. Some of their names have been forgotten and deserve to be remembered: Dr. Anderson Abbott, Canada's first black doctor, who was greatly admired by Lincoln; Margaret Saunders, whose book Beautiful Joe has sold 7 million copies to date; and Ernest Jones, who helped Freud escape from Austria and the Gestapo. Old Toronto comes vividly to life in these tales. For the hundreds of thousands of Star readers who love Donald Jones' columns, here is a collection of the best. And for those who have yet to discover the delights of his perspective on the city, Fifty Tales of Toronto provides a marvellous introduction to its history.

Book Summary: With the smart suspense of Emma Donoghue’s Room and the atmospheric claustrophobia of Grey Gardens, this “bizarrely unsettling, yet compulsively readable” (Iain Reid, internationally bestselling author of I’m Thinking of Ending Things) thriller explores the twisted realities that can lurk beneath even the most serene of surfaces. What becomes of a child who grows up without love? Marion Zetland lives with her domineering older brother John in a crumbling mansion on the edge of a northern seaside resort. A timid spinster in her fifties who still sleeps with teddy bears, Marion does her best to live by John’s rules, even if it means turning a blind eye to the noises she hears coming from behind the cellar door...and to the women’s laundry in the hamper that isn’t hers. For years, she’s buried the signs of John’s devastating secret into the deep recesses of her mind—until the day John is crippled by a heart attack, and Marion becomes the only one whose shoulders are fit to bear his secret. Forced to go down to the cellar and face what her brother has kept hidden, Marion discovers more about herself than she ever thought possible. As the truth is slowly unraveled, we finally begin to understand: maybe John isn’t the only one with a dark side....

Book Summary: About 30 percent of hospice patients report a “visitation” by someone who is not there, a phenomenon known in end-of-life care as a deathbed vision. These visions can be of dead friends or family members and occur on average three days before death. Strikingly, individuals from wildly diverse geographic regions and religions—from New York to Japan to Moldova to Papua New Guinea—report similar visions. Appearances of our dead during serious illness, crises, or bereavement are as old as the historical record. But in recent years, we have tended to explain them in either the fantastical terms of the supernatural or the reductive terms of neuroscience. This book is about how, when, and why our dead visit us. Allan Kellehear—a medical sociologist and expert on death, dying, and palliative care—has gathered data and conducted studies on these experiences across cultures. He also draws on the long-neglected work of early anthropologists who developed cultural explanations about why the dead visit. Deathbed visions conform to the rituals that underpin basic social relations and expectations—customs of greeting, support, exchange, gift-giving, and vigils—because the dead must communicate with us in a social language that we recognize. Kellehear emphasizes the personal consequences for those who encounter these visions, revealing their significance for how the dying person makes meaning of their experiences. Providing vital understanding of a widespread yet mysterious phenomenon, Visitors at the End of Life offers insights for palliative care professionals, researchers, and the bereaved.

Book Summary: In 1880 Dostoevsky completed The Brothers Karamazov, the literary effort for which he had been preparing all his life. Compelling, profound, complex, it is the story of a patricide and of the four sons who each had a motive for murder: Dmitry, the sensualist, Ivan, the intellectual; Alyosha, the mystic; and twisted, cunning Smerdyakov, the bastard child. Frequently lurid, nightmarish, always brilliant, the novel plunges the reader into a sordid love triangle, a pathological obsession, and a gripping courtroom drama. But throughout the whole, Dostoevsky searhes for the truth--about man, about life, about the existence of God. A terrifying answer to man's eternal questions, this monumental work remains the crowning achievement of perhaps the finest novelist of all time.
