But Byx and her new friends soon learned that it wasn’t just dairnes in jeopardy of extinction, but that everyone was at risk. With the world in unprecedented danger, Byx must rally creatures of all kinds to lead a revolution. Katherine Applegate’s Endling series has so far earned a collective five starred reviews, and each of the prior books has debuted on the New York Times bestseller list.

This book examines animal welfare themes in fiction, and considers how authors of the last two centuries undermine dominative attitudes toward the nonhuman. Appearing alongside the emerging humane movements of the nineteenth century and beyond is a kind of storytelling sympathetic to protectionist efforts well-described as a literature of protest. Compassion-inclined tales like the Dolittle adventures by Hugh Lofting educate readers on a wide range of ethical questions, empathize with the vulnerable, and envision peaceful coexistence with other species. Memorable characters like Black Beauty and Beautiful Joe, Ivan the gorilla and Louis the trumpeter swan, Hazel and Cheeta, Mr. Bultitude and Doctor Rat do not merely amuse. They are voices from the margins who speak with moral urgency to those with ears to hear. This broad survey of ethical themes in animal fiction highlights the unique contributions creative writers make toward animal welfare efforts.

In this chronicle of one person’s poignant and harrowing road to fulfillment, Mike celebrates his chosen life in the comedy business with personal tales of romantic calamities, celebrity run-ins, professional misfortunes, and triumphs. He reinforces the notion that you can accomplish (almost) anything you want if you’re willing to get your ass kicked along the way. It’s a Funny Thing solidifies Michael Rowe’s reputation as not just an all around nice guy, but also a skilled observer in self, the human condition, and dogged perseverance. MICHAEL ROWE, a former comedian now comedy writer/producer, has been nominated for six Emmys for his work on Futurama and Family Guy, earning one along the way. Mike’s also been nominated for two Annie Awards, earning two; a Writers Guild Award, and a Gemini Award. He has earned a Webby Award for his original animated series The Paranormal Action Squad. His writing has also appeared in Vanity Fair magazine. He lives in Los Angeles with his wife, twin sons and a silly dog named Marty Allen. “If you’ve ever had any interest in comedians, like what went wrong in our lives to make us so deeply disturbed, you will devour Mike Rowe’s insightful, personal, and yes, very funny book. Such a great read for smart people—and morons will like it, too.” — Larry David “During long, grueling nights working way too late in the writers’ room, when everyone had grown snarly and surly and silent, Mike would continue to pepper us with hilarious jokes. He was that cruel. And now he’s written a book that’s not only funny, but also sweet and sensitive. What is it with this guy?” — Matt Groening “Why would I want to read Mike’s book that highlights the struggles of coming up the ranks in the New York comedy club scene? I was there with him! I could write that book myself!!Then I read it and realized...I can’t write like this! Son of a bitch.” —Ray Romano “Having witnessed only a part of Mike’s life, I can tell you the whole thing is a doozy of a read. He is as much a fan of comedy as he is a fixture in it. The best always are.” — Sarah Silverman “We expected Mike Rowe to be a dick because he’s a big fancy Hollywood guy and he doesn’t smoke dope, and we weren’t wrong. But the book is pretty [email protected] funny.” — The Trailer Park Boys

The book contains 24 individual lessons that include: An SEL objective with specific keywords like “inner strength,” “problem solving,” and “responsibility” An engaging story that focuses on a distinctive quality of either a plant (like the inner strength of bamboo) or an animal (like the courage of a pig) Multiple activities that are quick, easy, and require few supplies to help kids identify and dive deeper into the specific SEL concepts represented Educators can use these lessons individually with students, in small groups, or with an entire class. The lessons are interdisciplinary and flexible, with only minimal prep time required, allowing educators to adapt them for their situation. Extensive digital content supports the lessons with reproducible forms and a full-color photo of each plant and animal.
