Along with her friends the lanky Anais, the cheerful Marie and the prim Joubert twins Claudine wreaks havoc on her small school. Always clever, witty and charming Claudine is more than a match for her formidable headmistress as they fight for the attention of the pretty assistant Aimee. The horrors of examinations and good-humoured bullying are the backdrops in this immensely funny and delightful novel with which Colette established the captivating character of Claudine.

#1 New York Times bestselling author! Booklist Editors’ Choice 2015 - Youth! Named a "Best Book of 2015" by Time Magazine, School Library Journal, Barnes & Noble, NPR, PopSugar, The Millions, and The News & Observer! Simon Snow is the worst Chosen One who's ever been chosen. That's what his roommate, Baz, says. And Baz might be evil and a vampire and a complete git, but he's probably right. Half the time, Simon can't even make his wand work, and the other half, he starts something on fire. His mentor's avoiding him, his girlfriend broke up with him, and there's a magic-eating monster running around, wearing Simon's face. Baz would be having a field day with all this, if he were here -- it's their last year at the Watford School of Magicks, and Simon's infuriating nemesis didn't even bother to show up. Carry On - The Rise and Fall of Simon Snow is a ghost story, a love story and a mystery. It has just as much kissing and talking as you'd expect from a Rainbow Rowell story - but far, far more monsters.

La Mémoire enchantée
Author: Anne H. Bustarret
Publisher: Editions de l'Atelier
De l'image d'Epinal au disque compact, de la tradition familiale au lecteur de cassettes, la chanson enfantine a une histoire, une pratique, une richesse considérables - et elle est toujours bien vivante. C'est ce trésor qu'Anne Bustarret explore avec une rare compétence. Dans la mouvance de la chanson française traditionelle et contemporaine, la chanson enfantine constitue un courant de création poétique et musicale dont l'auteur s'attache à retracer la trajectoire en examinant la pratique de la chanson dans les lieux de vie de l'enfant : en famille, à l'école, à l'église, en vacances, dans les chorales, etc. Elle s'intéresse aux supports successifs qui ont évolué en plus d'un siècle, de la tradition orale aux clips vidéo, en passant par le livre et par le disque. Sans négliger les zones d'ombre, les exploitations commerciales ou idéologiques du phénomène, ce livre montre comment l'enfant, dès son âge le plus tendre, se constitue peu à peu son trésor de chansons, comment se forme sa mémoire enchantée, comment cette fréquentation pratique de la chanson contribue au développement de son langage, de sa psychomotricité, de son expérience musicale. Avec une abondante discographie et bibliographie, un dictionnaire-répertoire des principaux auteurs, et de nombreux exemples musicaux.

Survival In Auschwitz
Author: Primo Levi
Publisher: Simon and Schuster
The author describes his twenty month ordeal in the Nazi death camp.
Phrasing is the way the elements of music (melody, harmony, and rhythm) are interpreted by different cultures (or different musicians, including vocalists). In Phrasing in Brazilian Music, Antonio Adolfo demonstrates through written and recorded musical examples on the piano---how the different elements of music play an important role when musicians are performing Brazilian music. The book covers phrasing in different Brazilian styles in two beat and is enhanced by a very didactic text. Although almost all examples are played on the piano (many times accompanied by shaker), the book will be of much interest for musicians of any instrument.
