              It's Christmas Eve 722, and Kristoph, a young orphan boy, is accompanying the missionary priest Boniface through the German countryside. They are hurrying to reach the next village by nightfall when they come upon a group of people in the forest worshiping an oak tree and prepari...ng to sacrifice the son of the village chieftain. To prove that the oak is powerless and that there is only One True God, Boniface miraculously fells the giant tree with a single ax stroke. In its place stands an evergreen. Calling it the tree of the Christ Child, he instructs the men to mend their lives and take the tree home where it will shelter loving gifts and lights of kindness. Now rescued, the son of the village chieftain invites Boniface and Kristoph to share Christmas with his family ...around another evergreen that Kristoph cuts down for their own celebration.

              So Here It Is: How the Boy From Wolverhampton Rocked the World With Slade (Hardback)

              By Hill, Dave

              In the 1970s, when Slade were the biggest band in the UK, Dave Hill was always the one having the most fun. Slade's blend of power-chords, memorable hooks, choruses and anthemic lyrics formed the soundtrack for a whole generation growing up in the 1970s - and leading it all in fl...amboyant style was the irrepressible, always-smiling Dave Hill.

              A quarter-Canadian from Cleveland explores his roots--and melts your face with joy. Most American children are taught that their country is the best. But this idea never stuck with Dave Hill, despite being born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio. His grandfather, you see, was from Can...ada. And every Sunday at dinner he'd remind Dave and anyone else within earshot that it was in fact Canada, this magical and mysterious land just across the mighty Lake Erie, that was the best. So while Dave's peers kept busy with football and baseball, Dave got into hockey, developed a preference for Canadian bacon, and was well-versed in the Canadian healthcare system by age nine (okay, the last one is not true). In later years he even visited Canada a couple of times. And then, inspired by a publisher's payment of several hundred dollars (Canadian) in cash, he travelled all over the country, reconnecting with his heritage in such places as Montreal, Moose Jaw, Regina, Winnipeg, Merrickville and of course Clinton, Ontario, meeting a range of Canadians, touching things he probably shouldn't and having adventures too numerous and rich in detail to be done justice in this blurb. The result, he promises, is the greatest Canada-based literary thrill ride of your lifetime.
