Zorro behind the mask is a daring defender of freedom and justice, wielding sword and whip with unparalleled skill in defense of the common people's cause. Zorro without the mask is Don Alejandro de la Vega, wealthy landowner and as much of a family man as his charge will allow. As California stands on the brink of statehood, Alejandro is not sure who he will be when the need for the mask fades, but his lovely wife, Elena, is certain he will be the devoted husband and father she and their son, Joaquin, have patiently waited for. But ruthless men in a deadly conspiracy of power have different ideas. As they threaten the future of a still-young nation, they also set Alejandro's two lives in collision, drawing his beloved Elena into a perilous world of shadows and lies. Could the mask ultimately cost the one they call Zorro everything and everyone he holds most dear? Or will the Zorro legacy and de la Vega family prevail?

Do you ever think about how the roads you walked as a child change the doors that open in your future? In 1951, seven-year-old Peter Stockley's life was set down a dark path after losing his mother. Her legacy to him was an optimism and spirit that even a vile step-mother could not break, and after an explosive confrontation, Peter set off on a new journey, via an orphanage, to his aunt and uncle's home in a tenement block by the North Liverpool docks: The Billogs. It was here he became one of 'The Scallywags', a group of streetwise young rascals who knew every inch of the canals, docklands and railway lines. With a turbulent home life, intense family tragedy and a chronic heart murmur, Peter had ground to make up in a golden age when children would play in the streets from dusk until dawn. But with the Scallywags, he had the run of the city. Peter embarked on a youth of picaresque adventures; clinging to the backs of speeding lorries, treading the boards of bombed houses for firewood, head-spinning climbs up fivestorey block of flats – nothing was out of bounds for the Scallywags. But their adventures also gave him an iron-clad sense of morality, honesty and respect which would go on to shape the rest of his life. This nostalgic, deeply moving – and often extremely funny – memoir of youth and young manhood in the Liverpool of the fifties and sixties recalls the exuberant joy every child feels at being 'one of the gang', and explores how the future can play out in very unexpected ways.

The Trouper-Royale Orpheum Galaxie Theatre is a jewel in the entertainment crown of Niagara Falls. At least, that’s what the marquee out front says. To the Fabulous Trouper Quintuplets their family’s old theatre is a thorn in the crown of their adolescent memories. Under their famous-child-actor-turned-director father’s overbearing, and narcissistic eye, the quintuplets are raised on a strict diet of Golden Age entertainment and homeschooling to mold them into the best actors of their generation. But through a series of hilarious and tragic events, the siblings begin to develop their own personalities and ambitions, rebelling against their father’s aspirations for them. The tension rising from the quintuplets’ newfound individualism sparks an onstage brawl during a performance on their 18th birthday that changes the trajectory of all their lives. Twenty years later, the quintuplets reunite for the reading of their father’s will and his demand for one last performance.

A perfect choice for kids (and parents!) trapped inside on a snow day. When his Ernest Shackleton report is ironically quashed because of a snowstorm, a school cancellation-celebrating elementary schooler chronicles his adventures at home with hilarious log entries and read-aloud-friendly results. The Captain's (our young protagonist) belongings start to go missing while homebound due to weather, and humorous attacks and pell-mell mutiny follow. After a series of snow day events, the crew (the Captain's parents), the first mate (his trusty dog), and the scallywag (also known as the younger sibling) are freed from their snowbound home, and the Captain returns to school. Kids will laugh at the Captain's battle with his siblings, and parents will relate to the antics that ensue when the weather prevents students from heading to class and upsets daily routines and schedules. *"Entertaining, informative--utterly delightful"--Kirkus Reviews, STARRED review

Hilary Westfield has always dreamed of being a pirate. But the Very Nearly Honourable League of Pirates rejects Hilary's application because she's a girl, and her father ships her off to Miss Pimm's Finishing School for Delicate Ladies instead. Expected to wear woollen dresses (petticoats not provided) and enthusiastically throw herself into activities such as Viennese Waltzing for the Eager Novice, Miss Pimm's is every bit as horrid as Hilary feared. However, a true pirate never lets dire circumstances stand in her way, and after a mostly dreadful first week, Hilary escapes and applies for a job with a freelance pirate known as the Terror of the Southlands. He offers her a place on his misfit crew, on one condition: she must find the famous treasure that's rumoured to contain most of the kingdom's lost magic. Hilary soon finds herself caught up in a dangerous quest, and on the run from her school governess and the most villainous pirate on the high seas!

Here is an utterly new departure in biography of the Old West. Writing in the hangered, hard-boiled style made famous by Hemingway and O’Hara, James B. O’Neil has succeeded in transferring the color and idiom of the wild and roaring days of the West to the printed page. They Die But Once is authentic biography—the life story of Jeff Ake, last of the Western gunfighters and vaqueros—yet because of the facility with which the author has translated the spirit of the period into language attuned to the twentieth century, the story moves with all the breathtaking speed of a current gangster thriller. O’Neil discards all the saccharine sentimentality that has clouded the real West of the seventies and presents Jeff Ake’s story in the sharp, biting understatement of contemporary prose. With the reek of a Texan prison camp in his nostrils, Jeff Ake rode, rampant unreconstruction in his heart, away from the looted Federal Treasury in Austin, with three hundred of Price’s army, into Mexico, where he joined Porfirio Diaz’s bodyguard. Back he came, with horse-trappings of human Comanche-hide and six-guns blazing, to enter the bloody range wars. Hell-bent-for-leather, he rode up and down the range, while pistols barked their staccato tale of sudden death. In They Die But Once, you will find the reason why Pat Barrett died; the sad tale of the bullet of Billy the Kid; the true cause of John Wesley Hardin’s capture. Bill Longley, Jim Gillett, John Ringo, Kit Carson, Jesse and Frank James, General Custer, Gene Rhodes and Roy Bean (“The Law West of the Pecos”) live and fight and love and die in the thrill-studded pages of They Die But Once. You who have read and not quite believed Clarence Mulford and William Patterson White, hear and know: What they told is only what they dared tell, Jeff Ake tells even more—and can prove a lot of it!

Rock Springs, Kentucky. A backwater miles from civilisation, but so far upstream that the riverboats can go no further, and with plenty of farmland there for the taking. Among the pioneers who choose to build their homes here are the Hudds and the Killicks, two families destined to spend the next century despising one another. Kentucky Blues is a powerful, unsentimental depiction of life through several generations, widely considered to be Robinson's most ambitious work. Told with his trademark dark humour, it is an epic tale of one small community's journey from its foundation in the 1820s, through the Civil War and the abolition of slavery, to the dawn of the modern age.
