3 - More Rupert adventures
No Place Daily Express N.D. Hardcover Very Good- 
Color Illustrations; 7 1/4 x 10; 119 pages; Hard cover has illustrated cover, pictorial paper boards. Cover has bumping, rubbing, paper on the spine is separate, missing the upper 1.25". Pages show signs of careful, light use. Beautifully illustrated with colorful cartoon drawings. No date or location listed. Possibly from 1952. Rupert Bear is a children's comic stripip character created by the English artist Mary Tourtel and first appearing in the Daily Express newspaper on 8 November 1920..Ruper iss a bear who lives with his parents in a house in Nutwood, a fictional idyllic English village. He is drawn wearing a red sweater and right yellow checked trousers, with matching yellow scarf...Unlike most modern comic strips, Rupert Bear has always been produced in the original form of strip with illustrations accompanying text, as opposed to text being incorporated into the art through the use of speech bubbles, etc. Bestall developed the classic Rupert story format, whereby the story is told in picture form (generally two panels each day in the newspaper and four panels to a page in the annuals) , in simple page-headers, in simple two-line-per-image verse and then as running prose at the foot. Rupert Annuals can therefore be "read" on four levels. He also established the shape and form of the Rupert stories themselves...In 1935, the mantle of Rupert artist and storyteller was taken over by Alfred Bestall...Bestall expanded the stories and plots of Rupert; and in addition to precise and detailed drawings for the Daily Express panels he also created beautifully crafted illustrations in the Rupert Annuals. Bestall drew the Rupert stories for the Daily Express until 1965; and continued to illustrate the covers for the annuals until 1973".

5 Bailey, Nancy Clifford of Drummond Island
Lincoln, NE iUniverse 2001 0595179509 / 9780595179503 Paperback New 
9.20 X 6.12 X 0.49 inches; xii, 159 pages; Soft cover has a black spine with white lettering. Michigan characters come in all shapes and species, including the talented and charming Clifford. Clifford is quite accomplished. He’s an abstract painter, a dancer and the subject of a published biography, and goes on statewide tours to spread the message of empathy. He also has four hooves and a tail. Clifford , also known as “Clifford of Drummond Island, ” is the Morgan horse owned, trained — and cherished — by Nancy J. Bailey, who also penned his biography of the same name. Clifford was a replacement for what she called the “perfect horse, ” Sharolyn, who died of a horse disease eight weeks after she acquired her. Soon afterward Bailey met a 2-year-old colt named Buckets who wasn’t exactly what she was looking for: He was a “mouthy chestnut colt. ” However, Bailey wanted a horse, and maybe it was better to get something different from the mare she mourned. Eventually Bailey gave Buckets the name Clifford after her great uncle, who had been a redhead, too, and whose descendants populating Drummond Island also were redheads. Thus began Bailey’s introduction into life with Clifford, also a relative neophyte to the human-horse experience. “I was new to horses, ” she said, “and he was new to the world. ”Clifford provided plenty of comic relief. Bailey’s dad and uncle once were working on a gazebo, digging postholes and other tasks. Clifford, according to Bailey, found the whole construction process fascinating. If he found a stray board lying anywhere, he’d pick up the board and move it. Another time, her dad and uncle were on hands and knees, looking down into a posthole, when Clifford joined in by lowering his head and checking out the posthole as well. A terrific true-life story of a special horse and the special woman who has helped him express himself.

"Winner of the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1965, Richard Feynman [1918-1988] was one of the world's greatest theoretical physicists, but he was also a man who fell, often jumped, into adventure. An artist, safecracker, practical joker and storyteller, Feynman's life was a series of combustible combinations made possible by his unique mixture of high intelligence, unquenchable curiosity and eternal skepticism. Over a period of years, Feynman's conversations with his friend Ralph Leighton were first taped and then set down as they appear here, little changed from their spoken form, giving a wise, funny, passionate and totally honest self-portrait of one of the greatest men of our age." index.

'This Far by Faith' Book Launch, Orchestra Hall, Detroit, MI, September 27, 2014'. Soft cover has pink spine with brown lettering. pages are clean and tight. "Faith Fowler, 55, is not your typical pastor. She is funnier. And more blunt. And, Lord, does she get things done. Tireless, humble, with a shock of white-blonde hair and a cackling laugh that sounds like a parrot being roasted, she houses people, feeds people and has created 85 full-time jobs for once-struggling Detroiters who now, among other things, turn old tires into sandals.She is the most important currency of our city, a loving, egoless, inspiring leader who doesn't see color, doesn't see class, who looks at our poorest, most neglected citizens and sees only hope and opportunity....She is often the only white face at the funerals she officiates or the church groups she addresses. It doesn't faze her. Despite being called Faith ("someone once asked if that was my stage name," she says), Fowler had to push her way to the pulpit...You can't talk Faith out of anything. She ignored people warning her to stay out of inner-city Detroit, to stay away from the poor, the addicted, the developmentally disabled.Instead, she embraced them all. She offered them dignity. She started a culinary arts program, a warming center. She created a Miss Cass pageant after being told that many of her challenged congregants never had a milestone to be proud of.Eight years after coming to the church, she founded Cass Community Social Services, which has blossomed into one of Detroit's most effective and original charitable agencies — creating everything from apartment buildings for transitional clients to a green warehouse turning the city's garbage into retail products, from floor mats to sandals that are selling, online, around the world."
