Short Stories by Archie

Release Date: 2014-11-30
Genre: Humor

My name is Archie Matthews I and my family have a long history of telling tales around the fire at family gatherings. I've grown up listening to thousands of tales, handed down from generation to generation. Once in a while a family member might experience a new adventure that would then result in a new tale being shaped and shared with family and friends. Many of my tales are humorous adventures, full of life's twists and turns. Some delve into the depths of human emotion. Most are factually true, while others may be slightly embellished with an angle or two to add a bit of intrigue. I am not a bold liar, crook, nor thief, but as with storytellers of old, it can be a bit of a challenge to separate the fact from the fiction. That part I will always leave up to you, the reader. I promise to never cheat you with a boring tale, nor steal your valuable time with vulgarity or gossip. I guarantee at the very least a smile, while striving for the ultimate belly laugh.

Re imagining the World

Author: Yan Wu
Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
ISBN: 9783642367601
Release Date: 2013-06-18
Genre: Education

(Re)Imagining the world: Children’s Literature’s Response to Changing Times considers how writers of fiction for children imagine ‘the world’, not one universal world, but different worlds: imaginary, strange, familiar, even monstrous worlds. The chapters in this collection discuss how fiction for children engages with some of the changes brought about by new technologies, information literacy, consumerism, migration, politics, different family structures, cosmopolitanism, new and old monsters. They also invite us to think about how memory shapes our understanding of the past, and how fiction engages our emotions, our capacity to empathise, and our desire to discover, and what the future may hold. The contributors bring different perspectives from education, postcolonial studies, literary criticism, cultural studies, childhood studies, postmodernism, and the social sciences. With a wide coverage of texts from different countries, and scholarly and lively discussions, this collection is itself a testament to the power of the human imagination and the significance of children’s literature in the education of young people. ​
