Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 16.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

Jay Osmond is a consummate entertainer. The youngest original member of the Osmond Brothers, he was widely known as the endearing little boy with the toothless grin on The Andy Williams Show. Fifty years, 30 gold albums, and 77 million records later, Jay opens up about his personal life and longstanding career in this heartfelt autobiography. Jay's public persona is confident, adventurous, and strong. But his close friends also know his vulnerable side, captured on the pages of this book. He is warm, sensitive, and focused on bringing happiness to others through his music. These qualities, along with his quick wit, have allowed him to cope with and overcome the challenges of life in and out of show business. Jay Osmond has been in the entertainment industry for over fifty years. While he is primarily known for his singing, he is a talented drummer who was voted by Flip Magazine as one of the top ten drummers in the United States. In 1972, Jay shared the lead with brother Merrill on ''Crazy Horses,'' which became the Osmonds 'bestselling single overseas;' it remains a fan favorite to this day.

3. Catherine Tate Laugh It Up! (Large Print 16pt) - Tina Ogle

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 19.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

Catherine Tate is far too talented and must be destroyed' is how DawnFrench described the newcomer after they appeared together in the short - lived BBC comedy series ''Wild West in 2002''. Although not a particularly well - known face to television audiences at the time, Catherine had steadily been building her career as an actress and comedy performer for many years, having decided on a career as an actress while she was still at school. Born in London in 1968, Catherine was brought up by her mother and grandmother, her mother having left her father when Catherine was a baby. Catherine went to Notre Dame High School in Southwark and the Salesian College in Battersea before attending the Central School of Speech and Drama. Her talent for comedy eventually led to appearances in ''The Harry Hill Show'' and ''That Peter Kay Thing'' and to her becoming involved in Lee Mack's ''New Bits'' show at the Edinburgh Festival.A starring role in her own, sell - out, one - woman show in Edinburgh was followed by the offer of the role alongside Dawn French in Wild West. ''The Catherine Tate Show'' and the host of characters, from the argumentative teenager Lauren Cooper to the foul - mouthed Nan Taylor and the effete Derek Faye, along with their myriad catchphrases, quickly followed, establishing Catherine as a household name, although few of her comedy fans realize that she has also appeared in productions at The National Theatre and with The Royal Shakespeare Company. Catherine leads a very private life along with her partner, stage manager Twig Clark, and their young daughter, Erin. ''Laugh It Up!'' (catchphrase of her character Geordie Georgie) is the first major unauthorised biography of Catherine Tate, Tina Ogle drawing on numerous interviews and background material to build a true and complete portrait of this hugely talented performer.

4. Finding God in the Shack Seeking Truth in a Story of Evil and Redemption (Easyread Large Edition) - Roger E. Olson

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 16.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

The Shack has touched millions of readers with its portrayal of a compassionate God in the face of great evil. Many have identified with the main character's Great Sadness, the terrible burden of grief that often accompanies and follows a deep loss. The Great Sadness is part of the human condition. And it compels us to ask, Where is God? Who is God? Roger Olson, who has faced his own Great Sadness, finds a good deal of comfort in this much beloved story as have so many others. Some may ask, however, Is God really like that? Is that really how God responds to evil? Can God be trusted? Olson also views The Shack with a theologian's eye and finds much to endorse. He delves into many of the significant issues raised by the book, such as forgiving those who have done us great evil, how God acts in the world, how God is three persons in one and what difference this makes to us. While he offers his own criticisms and questions of the book, he believes we largely find the truth about God in The Shack.....DR. ROGER E. OLSON is professor of theology at George W. Truett Theological Seminary of Baylor University in Waco, Texas. He is the author of many books, including Questions to All Your Answers (Zondervan) and The Story of Christian Theology (InterVarsity Press).
