In graphic novel format, tells the story of a twelve-year-old English girl's discovery in 1811 of an ichthyosaurus skeleton.
At a time when women were excluded from science, a young girl made a discovery that marked the birth of paleontology and continues to feed the debate about evolution to this day. Mary Anning was only twelve years old when, in 1811, she discovered the first dinosaur skeleton--of an ichthyosaur--while fossil hunting on the cliffs of Lyme Regis, England. Until Mary's incredible discovery, it was widely believed that animals did not become extinct. The child of a poor family, Mary became a fossil hunter, inspiring the tongue-twister, "She Sells Sea Shells by the Seashore." She attracted the attention of fossil collectors and eventually the scientific world. Once news of the fossils reached the halls of academia, it became impossible to ignore the truth. Mary's peculiar finds helped lay the groundwork for Charles Darwin's theory of evolution, laid out in his On the Origin of Species. Darwin drew on Mary's fossilized creatures as irrefutable evidence that life in the past was nothing like life in the present. A story worthy of Dickens, The Fossil Hunter chronicles the life of this young girl, with dirt under her fingernails and not a shilling to buy dinner, who became a world-renowned paleontologist. Dickens himself said of Mary: "The carpenter's daughter has won a name for herself, and deserved to win it." Here at last, Shelley Emling returns Mary Anning, of whom Stephen J. Gould remarked, is "probably the most important unsung (or inadequately sung) collecting force in the history of paleontology," to her deserved place in history.
This book is a critical cultural studies analysis of the CW’s hit teen television drama Gossip Girl (2007–2012). Bindig examines the show in terms of gender, race, class, sexuality, and consumerism, and she explores the potential ramifications of popular media texts like Gossip Girl.
A biography of the young English girl who made a major fossil discovery at age twelve and grew up to be one of the world's foremost fossil hunters.
Welcome to the high life... Owen, Avery and Baby Carlyle have just moved into a notorious Upper East Side penthouse (if only the walls could talk...!) and they're about to take the city by storm with their decadent behaviour. Manhattan's resident pretty young things better keep a close eye on their assets or hearts will get broken.
Welcome to New York City's Upper East Side, where my friends and I live, go to school, play, and sleep-sometimes with each other. It's a luxe life, but someone's got to live it . . . until they die. So begins Gossip Girl, Psycho Killer, a re-imagined and expanded slasher edition of the first groundbreaking Gossip Girl novel, featuring all new grisly scenes and over-the-top gore by #1 New York Times bestselling author Cecily von Ziegesar. Just as in the original story, Serena returns from boarding school hoping to make amends with her BFF Blair Waldorf--things just haven't been the same since Nate Archibald came between them. But here's where our dark tale takes a turn: Serena decides that the only way for her to make things right with Blair is to eliminate Nate. If that means killing him, well, c'est la vie. Her attempted murder doesn't go unnoticed by Blair, however, who isn't about to let Serena kill whoever she wants-not when there's Cyrus Rose and Chuck Bass and Titi Coates and everyone else who's ever irritated Blair to get rid of first . . . . American Psycho's Patrick Bateman has met his match in Manhattan's newest, most fabulous trendsetting serial killers, Blair Waldorf and Serena van der Woodsen.
This excellent quiz book contains 120 questions (and answers!) to test the knowledge of any Gossip Girl fan. From questions even a casual viewer should know all the way through to trivia that would test Serena herself, this is a fantastic way to enjoy the girls (and boys!) of the Upper East Side even more. With sections on the characters, episodes, and the series in general, this is an important addition to any fan's bookshelf!
