Pam Conrad takes us into the lives of six kids in six different decades and celebrates the commonality of all our lives. Originally published in 1995, Our House was hailed by critics in starred reviews as "remarkable," "rich," and "comic and poignant." This 10th Anniversary Edition, re-illustrated with stirring and beautiful black-and-white drawings that evoke the intimacy of a family photo album, is a gorgeous tribute to story, place, and memory--and to Pam Conrad herself, a writer who deserves to be memorialized for all time.


Call Me Ahnighito
Pam Conrad
0060233222
May 1995
Hardcover
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
As an author's note explains, Ahnighito is the name of the enormous meteorite now housed in New York City's Museum of Natural History, transported there from the North Pole in 1897. Conrad (The Tub People) imagines the thoughts and feelings of Ahnighito from "her" arrival on earth to her installation in the museum. As cold years go by at the North Pole, various people take an interest, chipping away at the rock; finally, over a series of winters, members of the Peary expedition haul her to the ocean and heave her onto a ship. Life becomes more interesting as Ahnighito travels to Brooklyn, then across Manhattan to the museum. Conrad vividly evokes the journey with arresting details (e.g., all the ship's compasses pointed only to the meteorite on the journey south). Egielski's familiar art takes on a majestic...

From Publishers Weekly
Zoe's playmate is a visitor from another century. PW praised the "surprisingly comforting tale of nurturing and forgiveness told in a direct, graceful style. This is a warmly poetic, atmospheric story shot through with bursts of fear, desperation and very real suspense." Ages 10-up. Copyright 1991 Reed Business Information, Inc.

From School Library Journal
Grade 5-9-- In a cemetery on an island off the northern coast of America, Zoe's unstable mother weeps for the dead, while Zoe stares at a gravestone with a single legible inscription: her own name. This scene sets the mood for an eerie and gripping time fantasy by a talented writer. Zoe tells her story, beginning when she is five and comes to live with her devoted, nurturing grandparents. She immediately discovers that...

Book Description
Do you want to be a godly woman, but also find yourself wanting to be seen by the world as successful? Have you ever read Proverbs 31 and decided that becoming a godly woman is impossible? The five authors of At the Feet of Ordinary Women came together with a common desire to minister to other women according to Titus 2:4-5. In that brief passage, the apostle Paul presents a profound, God-breathed instruction on just how to be a godly woman. Understanding the incredibly valuable role of mentoring is the basis for this helpful work. Built on that basis, the authors share wisdom on loving your husband and your children; responding to authority; and being self-controlled, pure, and kind. Each chapter includes a Bible study that will help you examine the topic and related Scriptures. At the Feet of Ordinary Women is a...

From School Library Journal

The Tub People
Pam Conrad

May 1995
Paperback
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
The Tub People resemble nothing so much as the small, rigid figures found in children's play sets--an unlikely cast of characters and yet, improbably, this story about them succeeds. Together text and illustrations spin just the sort of story a child might orchestrate as part of bath-time play, one in which the miniature figures are invested with human emotions and made to enact dramas that intersect with the child's imagination and experiences. The Tub People like to go for rides on the washcloth raft and the floating soap. One day disaster strikes: the Tub Child is lost, washed down the drain. Eventually a plumber retrieves him and the Tub People are reunited in the safety of a child's bedroom--this time with the Tub Child positioned securely between his parents, with faintly discernible smiles on their faces....

From Publishers Weekly
The ship's boy of the Santa Maria keeps a diary of his adventures in Christopher Columbus's company on that famous 1492 journey. Ages 8-12. Copyright 1992 Reed Business Information, Inc.

From School Library Journal
Grade 3-6-- Pedro, one of three ship's boys on board the Santa Maria, acknowledges that he was hired on not for his seamanship, but for his ability to read and write. Conrad uses the device of a journal to tell of his adventures with Columbus, a man whom Pedro admires, but who also engages in fiery rages and penitent Hail Marys. The details of mutinous murmurings, falling stars, and false land sightings that are described in Susan Martin's I Sailed with Columbus (Overlook, 1991), Miriam Schlein's I Sailed with Columbus (HarperCollins, 1991), and Genevieve...

(Paperback) - Spanish
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Conrad's ( Prairie Songs ; My Daniel ) typically simple style and generous character treatments bring this boy's journal of Columbus's voyage to the "Indies" dramatically to life. Personalities and events that stand as icons in America's history are reduced to human size in Pedro's account of his experiences on the trip. He learns to swim off the side of the boat, he becomes a favorite of the Captain General , he feels sorry for the natives they take prisoner, and he hates the parrots brought aboard. Offering a narrow but deeply satisfying view of a momentous event, Conrad's interpretation of a now-500-year-old journal, accompanied by atmospheric and graceful pencil sketches, feels newly minted and immediate while it carefully preserves the wonder and excitement of that legendary voyage of discovery. Ages 8-12....

From Publishers Weekly
This glowing story of a girl who leaves her body and travels back through time to save her mother is a worthy sequel to the Edgar Allan Poe Award winner Stonewords. Many teens know the feeling of being captive in their bodies, wanting to burst out and fly away to fix things that went wrong a long time ago. Fourteen-year-old Zoe can actually do it: "Without moving I turned around inside my body, fully, again and again. My arms left the shell of my arms... I was like a little paper umbrella twirling." Her "ghostwalking" frightens her, but she is compelled to use her power to solve a mystery in her estranged mother's past. The luminescent language and harrowing plot of loss and retrieval swirls Zoe from summer camp back through time to her mother's childhood in an island home. There, Zoe must summon all her ghostly...
