Book Description
"Once there was a little town, and in that town a little street and in that street a little yellow house, and in that little yellow house there lived three sisters: Aunt Green, Aunt Brown and Aunt Lavender. Though they must have had real names, all the children in the town used their nicknames for them because—sure as dandelions are yellow and bluebells blue—Aunt Green always wore a green dress, Aunt Brown always wore a brown dress, and Aunt Lavender always had a lilac dress." A "NEW" book by Elsa Beskow! This is the first of the classic "Peter and Lotta" books. Filled with the characteristic humor and charm of all of Elsa Beskow’s books, it tells how the two children come to meet the three colorful sisters known as Aunt Green, Aunt Brown, and Aunt Lavender.

China Bayles is a week away from marrying her beloved fianc?, the interim police chief of Pecan Springs. However, the murder of Edgar Coleman puts a damper on her plans, so China decides to help her husband-to-be solve the crime. Edgar, who was known for his shady deals and philandering ways, had many enemies, so China and her friend Ruby decide to investigate, and what they turn up adds more suspects to the list and more possibilities that China will miss her honeymoon.

From Publishers Weekly
Starred Review. Lavender, writer and online publisher of the parenting zine Hip Mama, holds nothing back as she recounts her life spent in and out of hospitals and her subsequent dissociation from her own body and emotions. She struggles with health problems from birth, which are compounded by her surroundings, including frequent encounters with street fights, domestic violence and poverty. Her voice is as strong as the front she puts up for the multitude of doctors she sees, and it's hard not to be in awe of what one fragile human being can withstand in the course of such a short lifetime (Lavender is now 35). Before Lavender has graduated from high school, she's endured cancer of the throat and skin (diagnosed as terminal at one point), cysts requiring massive jaw surgery, life-threatening allergies, internal...

From School Library Journal
Grade 3-6 Talented Tony award-winner Judith Ivey is the narrator of this inventive title. An exceptional story in its own right, author Deborah Wiles (Harcourt, 2001) has created an irresistible character in Ruby Lavender, the most precocious resident of Hallelulia, Mississippi. Ruby is the only grandchild of Miss Eula Dapplevine, and the two are definitely "kindred spirits." Partners in crime - they steal ready-to-be-slaughtered chickens - the two share their thoughts and feelings by leaving daily missives in the knothole of a silver maple. Ruby, adventurous and opinionated, is devastated when her grandmother announces her plans to visit a new grandchild ("I hope they name her Hortense," Ruby offers) in Hawaii. Miss Eula and Ruby continue their correspondence throughout the summer, as Ruby ...


The Lavender Cookbook

From Publishers Weekly
Most American cooks limit their culinary herb repertoire to staples like basil, parsley, rosemary, thyme and chives. But if Shipley has anything to say about it, they’ll soon be incorporating lavender into their roster. Not just for sachets and bubble baths, lavender can be used (and is widely in France) in everything from iced tea to muffins to veal scaloppine. The author, who owns and directs Mon Cheri Cooking School and Caterers in Sunnyvale, Calif., divides her book by season. Spring’s "fresh and enlivening" dishes include Petite Lavender Scones and Lavender Tropical Fruit Gazpacho. "Sumptuous" summer fare features California Lavender Pasta Salad and Grilled Lavender Lamb Chops. Among the "earthy and flavorful" autumn plates are Taos Lavender Potato Soup and Lavender Mulled Wine. And in winter, home...

Toxic Coworkers

Book Description
In the authors' random poll of 1,000 working people, 80 percent said that a single coworker contributed significant stress to their workday. Everyone has worked with someone "difficult" - someone who could always be trusted to blow up or say or do something provoking or inappropriate. Psychologists Alan Cavaiola and Neil Lavender have studied this much-discussed but rarely addressed area. Their research showed that the conventional wisdom that some problem workers are "just nuts" was right: a sizeable number of such employees do in fact have full-fledged personality disorders. In Toxic Coworkers, they pinpoint a variety of personality traits and disorders, showing how they come about and offering effective strategies for coping with them. The authors cover the range of familiar types, from hyperactives, histrionics,...
