Description : Penguin Classics presents John Steinbeck’s classic tale as an eBook enhanced with ten exclusive video clips featuring students responses, questions for classroom discussions, and an American Dream assignment

Nobel Prize-winner John Steinbeck’s Of Mice and Men remains one of America's most widely read and taught novels. An unlikely pair, George and Lennie, two migrant workers in California during the Great Depression, grasp for their American Dream.

Laborers in California's dusty vegetable fields, they hustle work when they can, living a hand-to-mouth existence. For George and Lennie have a plan: to own an acre of land and a shack they can call their own. When they land jobs on a ranch in the Salinas Valley, the fulfillment of their dream seems to be within their grasp. But even George cannot guard Lennie from the provocations, nor predict the consequences of Lennie's unswerving obedience to the things George taught him.

Of Mice and Men: Teacher’s Edition includes the following:

• An introduction and suggested further reading by Susan Shillinglaw, a professor of English at San Jose State University and Scholar-in-Residence at the National Steinbeck Center in Salinas
• The poem “To a Mouse, On Turning Her Up in Her Nest with the Plough, November 1785” by Robert Burns (the original source of Steinbeck’s title Of Mice and Men)
• The 1962 Nobel Banquet Speech by John Steinbeck
• An exclusive audio interview with award-winning actor James Earl Jones on his stage performances in Of Mice and Men
• Ten exclusive videos of students on major themes from the novel tied to group discussion questions included in the eBook, and an American Dream assignment, for the ultimate educational experience

Description : A controversial tale of friendship and tragedy during the Great Depression

Over seventy-five years since its first publication, Steinbeck’s tale of commitment, loneliness, hope, and loss remains one of America’s most widely read and taught novels. An unlikely pair, George and Lennie, two migrant workers in California during the Great Depression, grasp for their American Dream. They hustle work when they can, living a hand-to-mouth existence. For George and Lennie have a plan: to own an acre of land and a shack they can call their own. When they land jobs on a ranch in the Salinas Valley, the fulfillment of their dream seems to be within their grasp. But even George cannot guard Lennie from the provocations, nor predict the consequences of Lennie's unswerving obedience to the things George taught him.

Of Mice and Men represents an experiment in form, which Steinbeck described as “a kind of playable novel, written in a novel form but so scened and set that it can be played as it stands.” A rarity in American letters, it achieved remarkable success as a novel, a Broadway play, and three acclaimed films. This edition features an introduction by Susan Shillinglaw, one of today’s leading Steinbeck scholars.

For more than seventy years, Penguin has been the leading publisher of classic literature in the English-speaking world. With more than 1,700 titles, Penguin Classics represents a global bookshelf of the best works throughout history and across genres and disciplines. Readers trust the series to provide authoritative texts enhanced by introductions and notes by distinguished scholars and contemporary authors, as well as up-to-date translations by award-winning translators.

Of Mouse And Men Confessions Of A Walt Disney World Character Performer

Behind the Ears

Do you believe in Disney characters? There's only one Mickey, right? If that's what you think, do not buy this book, because it lays bare—in extreme detail—how Disney hires and trains its character performers and how those performers handle the toughest job in the theme park.

Disney jargon for a character performer is "friend of", as in "I'm a friend of Goofy!" The company doesn't like its character performers to say they are the character. But we're adults, and we know that Goofy is a big head and a costume, and inside that costume is a sweaty but happy cast member who has been trained to walk, behave, and interact just like Goofy. The cast member is the character.

Nicklaus Hopkins played several roles at Walt Disney World besides Goofy: Sheriff Woody, Mr. Incredible, the Beast, Captain Hook, and others. Each of them brought new challenges, new discoveries, and new adventures, in all of the theme parks.

In a fun, fast-moving narrative, Nicklaus relates exactly how he got his job as a character performer, takes you through his unique, vaguely boot camp-ish training as Goofy, and then brings you with him into the parks for guest encounters, cast member horseplay, and all the pleasures and perils of being a Disney theme-park character. Despite the harsh training, the heavy costume, and the sweat drenching his body, Nicklaus loved every minute of it.

Let's go behind the ears!

Description :

Harper Lee's Pulitzer prize-winning masterwork of honor and injustice in the deep south—and the heroism of one man in the face of blind and violent hatred, available now for the first time as an e-book.

One of the best-loved stories of all time, To Kill a Mockingbird has been translated into more than forty languages, sold more than thirty million copies worldwide, served as the basis for an enormously popular motion picture, and was voted one of the best novels of the twentieth century by librarians across the country. A gripping, heart-wrenching, and wholly remarkable tale of coming-of-age in a South poisoned by virulent prejudice, it views a world of great beauty and savage inequities through the eyes of a young girl, as her father-a crusading local lawyer-risks everything to defend a black man unjustly accused of a terrible crime.

With Every Mouse Man A Novel Of One Of The Most Tragic And Heroic U Boat Mysteries Of World War Two

Description : In the North Atlantic of World War I, a British passenger liner called The Laconia, was torpedoed and sunk by a German U boat. Not long thereafter, U156 was blown up and sunk with all hands on deck. Decades later, in the South Atlantic of World War II, another British passenger called The Laconia is torpedoed and sunk. Not long thereafter, another U156 is blown up and sunk with all hands on deck.

But before it dies, this U156 makes its mark in history by rescuing all the survivors of the ship it had just sent to the bottom. It radios for Allied assistance and the Americans send a bomber that attacks the U boat, killing many of the struggling survivors.

About that same time, high profile Lutheran pastor, Martin Niemöller, a former decorated U boat captain of the First World War, turns against Hitler and is dragged off to the concentration camps. Then one of Niemöller's WWI protégés, Karl Dönitz, ascends to command the entire German U boat fleet. These two men share the nightmare memory of a U boat atrocity which they had been forced to commit in the last war.

Those are the facts of history.

But why would a U boat captain risk the lives of his entire crew and his entire wolfpack in order to save the enemy he had just tried to kill? Why would he defy Hitler and continue the effort and even call in enemy assistance? Why would Hitler then decorate him with one of Germany's highest medals of valor? Why would the Americans deliberately and repeatedly bomb its own defenseless civilians on the open sea?

These are the questions which drive the fiction in Dave Garwick's debut novel, With Every Mouse and Man.
