1. On The Rails---A Kid's Guide To Brenner Pass - Penelope Dyan

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 8.60  - Click book title for availability and further details

You can get very bored on a long train ride, but you won't get bored if you know what is ahead on the tracks. Brenner Pass is a beautiful place, and the exciting thing is that you can see it by train! If you want, you can even stop at one of the many train stations along the way and stretch your legs and talk a walk around one of the several lovely small towns. Brenner Pass is a feast for the eyes. Have your children count how many church steeples they see along the way, or how many small villages they see. Watch for hikers and take in the breath taking beauty. With photography by John D. Weigand and poetry by award winning author, Penelope Dyan, you can delight in the sights and impressions of these two travelers as you talk to your children about what happened along the pass. Brenner Pass served mule trains and carts until a road was opened in 1777. The railway, completed in 1867, is the only trans-alpine rail route with no major tunnel. At the end of World War I international borders shifted. Control of the area has shared between Italy and Austria ever since. During World War II, Adolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini met there to celebrate their Pact of Steel on March 10, 1940. And Brenner Pass was a Nazi escape route after the collapse of Germany in 1945. The pass is beautiful to behold, and with or without its colorful history, the journey is fun and interesting. Travel the pass through the pages of this book, and pretend you can hear the sound of the rails going clickity clack, clickity clack as you trave along the railroad's track.

4. One Way or Another The Story of a Girl Who Loved Rock Stars (Large Print 16pt) - Nikki McWatters

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 22.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

I looked down at this man who adorned the bedroom walls of girls all over the world. His eyes were spinning, his makeup was melting and he had the goofiest grin on his handsome face. This was what the Vulture Club was about. This was fun. This was as rock and roll as it got. I was bedding this rock god on behalf of every teenage girl who had ever imagined doing exactly this - and it felt fantastic. In 1981, fifteen - year - old Nikki McWatters is living in a Gold Coast suburb, dragging herself through humdrum schooldays and dreaming of losing her virginity to a rock star. With three friends she starts the Vulture Club for aspiring groupies - and so begins a festival of sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll. By day Nikki is a dutiful student; by night she collects rock stars, crawling out her bedroom window and sneaking backstage to meet the band. As Nikki gets older, her conquests get bigger and the stakes get higher. Soon she finds herself in Sydney, chasing an acting career and carousing with her idols. From Australian Crawl to INXS, Pseudo Echo to Duran Duran, she is living her teenage dream - but is the groupie life all it's cracked up to be? One Way or Another is a rollicking ride through a world of pub rock, big hair, wild nights and mornings after. With irrepressible humour and a bulging little black book, Nikki McWatters recalls an age when everything seemed possible - even if everything wasn't such a good idea.
