Wes can´t get enough of Eardrum Buzz´s first CD, Misery Machine. So when he sees an ad in a music magazine calling for fans to join the ´´Swarm´´ and promote the band, Wes doesn´t hesitate to sign on. At the next pre-show party, Wes meets the band in all their insectoid glory and, convinced by a beautiful goth girl´s hot breath on his neck, eats one of their hors d´oeuvres - a strange fried insect. After that, the music crawls inside his skull and the buzzing won´t stop. Hoping for help, Wes visits the Swarm, and there he discovers just how deep the buzzing goes, and what bloody lengths it may take to make the buzzing stop. 1. Language: English.

From the award-winning author of The Triumph of Seeds and Feathers, a natural and cultural history of the buzzing wee beasties that make the world go round. Bees are like oxygen: ubiquitous, essential, and, for the most part, unseen. While we might overlook them, they lie at the heart of relationships that bind the human and natural worlds. In Buzz, the beloved Thor Hanson takes us on a journey that begins 125 million years ago, when a wasp first dared to feed pollen to its young. From honeybees and bumbles to lesser-known diggers, miners, leafcutters, and masons, bees have long been central to our harvests, our mythologies, and our very existence. They´ve given us sweetness and light, the beauty of flowers, and as much as a third of the foodstuffs we eat. And, alarmingly, they are at risk of disappearing. As informative and enchanting as the waggle dance of a honeybee, Buzz shows us why all bees are wonders to celebrate and protect. Listen to this book and you´ll never overlook them again.PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio. 1.

A hilarious and heartrending account of one mother´s journey to understand and reconnect with her high-spirited preteen son - a true story sure to beguile parents grappling with a child´s bewildering behavior. Popular literature is filled with the stories of self-sacrificing mothers bravely tending to their challenging children. Katherine Ellison offers a different kind of tale. Shortly after Ellison, an award-winning investigative reporter, and her twelve-year-old son, Buzz, were both diagnosed with attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder, she found herself making such a hash of parenting that the two of them faced three alternatives: He´d go to boarding school; she´d go AWOL; or they´d make it their full-time job to work out their problems together. They decided to search for a solution while Ellison investigated what genuine relief, if any, might be found in the confusing array of goods sold by the modern mental health industry. The number of diagnoses for childhood attention and behavior issues is exploding, leaving parents and educators on a confusing chase to find the best kind of help for each child. Buzz, a pause-resistor of a memoir, brings much relief. It is immensely engaging, laugh-out-loud funny, and honest-and packed with helpful insights. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Katherine Ellison.
