              "A comprehensive guide to puppy training by Mark Vette, of Pound Pups to Dog Stars fame. Mark's first book Dog Zen had just 40 pages on puppies - this book goes into full detail about all ages and stages, and how to do the right thing at the right time. Following a quick look at ...the role of pups within the wolf pack, and how dogs evolved from wolves, this book gives a day-by-day, week-by-week guide to the fundamentals of training your puppy and building a happy lifelong bond between the two of you. Mark stresses the importance of the formative period (1-4 months) to instill good habits in your puppy, then shows you exactly how to do so and when to teach each skill. Includes chapters on choosing a puppy, forming a bond with your pup, training foundations (equipment and techniques), basic commands (like sit, heel and stay), what to train in which weeks of age, house training, socialisation, teaching them not to bite or indulge in continual barking, jumping up or other anti-social behaviours. It is a detailed and practical guide combining the latest cognitive science with modern, loving, training techniques. Illustrated with irresistible puppy photos (by renowned animal photographer Rachael McKenna), plus down-to-earth how-to shots of the training methods"--Publisher information.

              Three women are drawn into a seductive web of privilege, displacement, sexuality, and other mysteries of the human heart in this magnetic debut by a young Brazilian-American author to watch. With sharp, gorgeous prose, It Is Wood, It Is Stone takes place over the course of a year... in Sao Paulo, Brazil, in which three women's lives intersect. Linda, an anxious and restless American, has moved with her husband, Dennis, for a year professorship. As Dennis submerges himself into his work, Linda finds herself unmoored and adrift, feeling increasingly disassociated from her own body. Linda's unwavering and skilled maid, Marta, has more claim to Linda's home than she can fathom. Marta, who is struggling to make sense of her country's complicated history and its racial tensions, is exasperated by Linda's instability. One day, Linda meets Celia, a charismatic and beguiling artist, whom she joins on a life-altering adventure that causes reverberations felt by them all. An exquisite debut novel by young Brazilian-American author Gabriella Burnham about women whose romantic and subversive entanglements reflect on class and colorism, sexuality, and complex, divisive histories.

              "Both fiction and fact, this book is an exploration of the Battle of Orakau. During three days in 1864, 300 Maori men, women and children fought an Imperial army and captured the imagination of the world. The battle marked the end of the Land Wars in the Waikato and resulted in v...ast tracts of land being confiscated for European settlement. Instead of following the usual standpoint of the victors, this book takes a Maori perspective. It is centred around Witi Ihimaeras moving novella, Sleeps Standing, which views the battle through the eyes of a 16-year-old boy named Moet. Alongside the novella are non-fiction narratives from Maori eyewitnesses, together with images and a Maori translation by Hmi Kelly, further giving voice to and illuminating the people who tried to protect their culture and land. It is estimated that, at the height of the battle, 1700 immensely superior troops, well armed and amply resourced, laid siege to the hastily constructed p at Orakau. The defenders were heavily outnumbered with few supplies or weapons but, when told to submit, they replied: E hoa, ka whawhai tonu matou, ake, ake, ake! Friend, I shall fight against you for ever, for ever!"--Publisher information.

              A new ghoulish mystery from the New York Times bestselling author of A Ghostly Light, featuring Mel Turner, a ghost-whispering contractor. Mel Turner can't resist the chance to bring the Crockett Theatre, a decrepit San Francisco art nouveau movie palace, back to life. But there'...s a catch for Turner Construction: Several artists are currently squatting in the building, and they aren't the only ones haunting the once-grand halls of the historic theater.... When one of the squatters is found dead, the police department has a long list of suspects to investigate. Meanwhile, Mel and her fiance, Landon, are remodeling an old house for themselves, and Mel finds it more challenging than she expected to be on the other side of a home renovation project. When Mel discovers that the original owner of the Crockett Theatre died under mysterious circumstances, and that there just might be a connection to the ghost haunting her own attic, the case takes a new turn--one that could bring down the curtain for the last time.
