The United States is experiencing a new British Invasion—One Direction, the British boy band that has captured the hearts and attention of young Americans in a way that can only be compared to the Beatles. With the recent U.S. launch of their new album Up All Night and their current North American tour, Niall, Zayn, Liam, Harry, and Louis have taken the United States by storm, and this account details how five solo contestants on Britain's X Factor in 2010 came together as a band to finish third on the program. The book provides fans with the answers to questions such as What was the motivation for each of Zayn's four tattoos? What vegetable did the guys receive in the mail from an adoring fan? and What's next for One Direction? Including nearly 100 full-color photographs, it's the inside source for all self-proclaimed "Directioners."

Ten true stories of real-life heroes during Hurricane Katrina! When Hurricane Katrina's flood waters rose, trapping the Bullard family inside their home, 13-year-old Phillip Bullard swam underwater to a submerged window, cleared the debris, and led each family member underwater to the roof. Then he swam to retrieve an abandoned boat and put them in it. He used broomsticks and other debris for paddles and took his family to higher ground. Terrence Gray of Gulfport, Mississippi, commandeered a rowboat that was floating nearby and dragged it from house to house to save 20 injured, disabled, and elderly people in a terribly flooded neighborhood. Nurses and doctors at Charity Hospital fought desperately to keep their patients alive for days, despite hunger, pain, heat, little drinkable water and no electricity, waiting desperately for helicopters to evacuate their patients. These and other real-life heroes risked their lives to save others during Hurricane Katrina. You will never forget their courageous true stories.

A dynamic author-illustrator team follows the threetime heavyweight champ through twelve rounds of a remarkable life. "Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee. . . . I’m the prettiest thing that ever lived!" From the moment a fired-up teenager from Kentucky won 1960 Olympic gold to the day in 1996 when a retired legend, hands shaking from Parkinson’s, returned to raise the Olympic torch, the boxer known as "The Greatest" waged many a fight. Some were in the ring, against opponents like Sonny Liston and Joe Frazier; others were against societal prejudice and against a war he refused to support because of his Islamic faith. Charles R. Smith Jr.’s rap-inspired verse weaves and bobs and jabs with relentless energy, while Bryan Collier’s bold collage artwork matches every move — capturing the "Louisville loudmouth with the great gift of rhyme" who shed the name Cassius Clay to take on the world as Muhammad Ali. Back matter includes a time line.

Discover the man behind the magic and see how Houdini pulled off his most daring escapes   Before Harry Houdini (1874–1926) became the greatest magician in the world, he was just little Ehrich Weisz, a Hungarian-born immigrant who moved to America with his family and performed stage tricks for a little extra cash. He started off with card tricks and then eventually began performing the escape acts that would make him famous. Known for his daring and death-defying illusions, he would do some of the greatest tricks ever: escaping from a milk can, being buried alive, and being locked inside a crate and thrown into a river. He conquered each of these seemingly impossible feats and showed the world the power of a little magic. Fun, fast-paced, and highly illustrated, Harry Houdini tells the story of the curious boy who became the world’s greatest magician and reveals how Houdini did some of his most stunning escapes. It includes a timeline, glossary, and index.

See how Amelia Earhart went from a little Kansas tomboy to a high-flying feminist icon   Before Amelia Earhart (1897–1939) became a world-famous pilot, she was a little tomboy from Kansas with a taste for adventure. When she visited an airfield and took a short plane ride, she knew she had to be a pilot. She signed up for flying lessons and cropped her hair short so that the other pilots would take her seriously. She became the first woman to make a solo flight across the Atlantic Ocean. With each flight she took and each record she broke, Amelia became more and more of a celebrity. Her final flight was intended to be a trip around the whole world, but her plane disappeared after takeoff—and her disappearance is still a mystery today. Inspirational, highly illustrated, and full of adventure, Amelia Earhart tells the story of the feminist icon who changed the world of aviation. It includes a timeline, glossary, and index.
