Book Description: The Worst Vacation Ever! Thirteen-year-old Kyle thought spending a vacation on the Oregon coast with his family would be great. He'd never flown before, and he'd never seen the Pacific Ocean. One evening Kyle is left in charge of his younger sister, BeeBee, while his parents attend an adults-only Salesman of the Year dinner on an elegant yacht. Then the earthquake comes -- starting a fire in their hotel! As Kyle and BeeBee fight their way out through smoke and flame, Kyle remembers the sign at the beach that said after an earthquake everyone should go uphill and inland, as far from the ocean as possible. Giant tsunami waves -- three or four stories high can ride in from the sea and engulf anyone who doesn't escape fast enough. Kyle and BeeBee flee uphill as a tsunami crashes over the beach, the hotel, and the town. The giant wave charges straight up the hillside and through the woods where the children are running for their lives. The perfect vacation has become a nightmare! Somehow Kyle and BeeBee have to outwit nature's fury and save themselves from tsunami terror.

Book Description: Гомерівський епос складається з двох епопей – «Іліади» і «Одіссеї». У першій із них йдеться про подвиги звитяжців під час Троянської війни. У другій розповідається про повернення Одіссея – одного з героїв Троянської війни – на рідний острів Ітаку та про незвичайні пригоди, які йому довелося пережити. «Одіссея» дихає величавим спокоєм, вона сповнена духовної краси і величі та є завершеним втіленням класичної епопеї. Поема наповнена цікавим побутово-звичаєвим змістом життя стародавніх еллінів, і разом з тим вона нас вводить у казково-фантастичний світ грецької міфології. Поема відзначається досить складною і довершеною композицією, що свідчить про високий художній рівень, якого досягла поезія гомерівського часу.

Book Description: Повість «Білий Зуб» відомого американського письменника Джека Лондона (1876—1916) описує події, які відбувалися під час золотої лихоманки на Алясці. Напіввовк-напівсобака народився на волі, але був приручений. Жорстокий і суворий світ, який оточував його, загрожував неминучою загибеллю. І лише зустріч з доброю людиною допомогла йому вижити. Автор розповідає про вірність і дружбу, що може бути між твариною та людиною, про нелегкий вибір Білого Зуба між природними інстинктами лютого хижака та любов’ю до свого господаря.

Book Description: The tragic bombing of EuroTours Flight 1023 was big news. To FBI Agent Cam Daggett it was more than that. It was personal. His parents and son were on that plane. And for two years he's been after the killer who did it. All he has to go on is a name: Anthony Kort . . . and the knowledge that Kort is in the United States with a detonator no airport security can detect. HE MUST BE STOPPED. Daggett's colleagues at the Bureau and his girlfriend tell him his vendetta has become an obsession. They suggest he leave the investigation to other agents, in order to keep it objective. But having painstakingly constructed a portrait of the terrorist, Daggett believes he's now the only one with any chance of predicting Kort's next target. A novel of madness and revenge, Hard Fall begs readers to fasten their seatbelts.

Book Description: First published in Japan five years before the March 2011 earthquake and tsunami struck the eastern coast of northern Japan, this edition of Megaquake has been updated with additional information, including a new chapter by Robert D. Eldridge, translator and one of the key American officials involved in the response to the 2011 earthquake. Takashima and Eldridge hope to educate the international community about how to prepare for and respond to the next big Japanese earthquake which is expected to far exceed the 2011 quake in terms of lives lost, destruction of infrastructure, and worldwide economic impact.
