This book is written for an upper elementary and middle school reading and interest level. It involves the use of sonnets and ballads in very basic ways with the hope of instilling an excitement of poetry. As a teacher of U. S. History Jim Peirce wanted all his students to get a hands-on experience by actually touching objects which at one time influenced people of the past. He required each to visit sites, take pictures and report back to class. From these writings and his own travels he collected a lot of trivia, but also great stories from all over Maryland. Each chapter of this book is written with the hope of expanding knowledge of the Chesapeake Bay. Jim finds them fascinating, and he hopes you do too.
Novelist, comics writer, scriptwriter, poet, occasional artist - a master of several genres and inadvertent leader of many cults - there are few creative avenues Neil Gaiman hasn't ventured down. From unforgettable books like The Ocean at the End of the Lane and American Gods to ground-breaking comics and graphic novels like The Sandman and Violent Cases; from big screen fantasies like Coraline to small screen epics like Doctor Who; and from short stories to songwriting, stage plays to radio plays, journalism to filmmaking, and all points in-between, The Art of Neil Gaiman is the first comprehensive, full-colour examination of Gaiman's work to date. Author Hayley Campbell, a close friend of Neil's since she was a small child, spent many months rummaging through Neil's attic to source the never-before-seen manuscripts, notes, cartoons, drawings and personal photographs for this book; these are complemented by artwork and sketches from all of his major works and his own intimate recollections. Each project is examined in turn, from genesis to fruition, and positioned in the wider narrative of Gaiman's creative life, affording unparalleled access to the inner workings of the writer's mind. Utterly comprehensive, lavishly illustrated, The Art of Neil Gaiman is the fully authorised account of the life and work of one of the greatest storytellers of all time.
