The FIFA Women's World Cup Comes to Winnipeg in June

by Shanleigh K - Monday, Jun 01, 2015 at 5:04pm

From June 6 to July 5 2015, 24 teams from around the world will compete in the seventh FIFA Women's World Cup in venues across Canada, including Moncton, Montreal, Ottawa, Winnipeg, and Edmonton, with the final taking place in Vancouver. FIFA Women's World Cup Canada 2015 provides an insightful and in-depth preview of women's soccer's biggest tournament.

Women's soccer is of growing interest to Canadians after the team's strong showing in the London Olympics and the routinely excellent performance of star players like Christine Sinclair. How has the team performed in the lead up to the world cup? What have been some of its successes and failures? How does Team Canada stack up against the other teams? All these questions, and many more, are answered in the official book of the 2015 tournament.

FIFA Women's World Cup Canada 2015 guidebook includes a review of the qualifying campaign; information on each of the tournament’s six venues; an analysis of all 24 participating teams and their star players; and a retrospective look at the first six FIFA Women's World Cups.


Excerpt from the May/June issue of The Bookseller, out now.

Flora and Ulysses, The Illuminated Adventures by Kate DiCamillo (from a Two Thumbs Up reviewer)

by McNally Robinson - Saturday, Jun 20, 2015 at 10:19pm

The squirrel never saw the vacuum cleaner coming, but self-described cynic Flora Belle Buckman is just the right person to step in and save him. What neither can predict is that Ulysses (the squirrel) has been born anew, with powers of strength, flight, and misspelled poetry -- and that Flora will be changed too, as she discovers the possibility of hope and the promise of a capacious heart.

Flora and Ulysses, The Illuminated Adventures, is a wonderful book. A book filled with mystery, excitement and surprise. I was proud to read this amazing novel. Is Ulysses the squirrel really magical or is it all an illusion? Will William Spiver be true to his word or will he betray them? Will Flora keep Ulysses' secret? What will happen in this exciting novel?

Escape from Baxter's Barn by Rebecca Bond (from a Two Thumbs Up reviewer)

by McNally Robinson - Saturday, Jun 20, 2015 at 9:44am

When Burdock the barn cat sneaks into the Baxters’ farmhouse kitchen to hide behind a warm stove, he overhears a sinister plot that endangers all the animals on the farm. It’s up to him and his cacophonous cohorts to figure out how to bust out of the barn before it's too late.

OMG, if you like animals you will like this book which shows friendship, loyalty and respect. When Dewey the farmer doesn't have much money left, he decides to burn down the barn with all the farm animals in it! I liked this book a lot and it can be for boys and girls. I hope you like reading Escape from Baxters' Barn as much as I did!

- Jadzia, a Two Thumbs Up reviewer

Escape from Baxters' Barn will be available July 7.
