Books Description:

Paradis. Pour les dieux, un simple plateau de jeu, le théâtre de leurs passions et luttes de pouvoir. Pour les hommes, c'est une terre brutale et violente, divisée entre dynasties rivales, déchirée par les ambitions et les croyances religieuses, constamment menacée par le machiavélisme politique. Dans cet état de guerre règnent les dinosaures. Élevés, dressés dès leur plus jeune âge, ils deviennent des armes redoutables dominant les champs de bataille. Et c'est lors d'un affrontement épique dont le fracas pourfend la terre et déchire le ciel que l'énigmatique seigneur Karyl Bogomirskiy est défait par traîtrise et laissé pour mort. À son réveil, partiellement amnésique, il découvre qu'il est désormais pourchassé. Il se lance alors dans un voyage qui va faire trembler le monde, jusqu'aux trônes des dieux...

Books Description:

What is a mammal? And what is not a mammal? Mammals have skeletons as deer have, breathe air in lungs as whales do, and are born alive as are calves. What is not a mammal? A ladybug has no skeleton, a fish breathes through gills and a bird hatches from an egg. Monkeys, dolphins, and elephants are mammals—and so are you and I! With clear, simple language, beautiful paintings, a chart, diagrams, and a cutaway, acclaimed author-illustrator Lizzy Rockwell has created a beautiful and informative book that introduces young children to animal classification and dichotomous inquiry.

Books Description:

Daphné Sheldrick, celle qu’on surnommera «la mère des éléphants», voit le jour en juin 1934 dans une ferme de colons britanniques, au Kenya. Tout la prédestine à vivre au plus près de la nature, surtout son extraordinaire empathie envers les animaux. Mais rien n’annonce qu’elle se lancera à corps perdu dans la guerre contre les chasseurs d’ivoire, ni qu’elle consacrera sa vie aux bébés orphelins victimes du braconnage. Le récit de cette femme d’exception traverse le XXe siècle et rend compte des soubresauts de l’histoire : les guerres mondiales, la révolte mau-mau, l’indépendance kenyane... Un destin romanesque, au cœur du monde sauvage, plein de chair, de passions et de violence. Décédée en 2018, Daphné Sheldrick a reçu de nombreuses distinctions et s’est fait connaître dans le monde entier par son travail pour la protection des éléphants. Le David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, qu’elle a fondé en l’honneur de son mari, œuvre pour la sauvegarde de la faune sauvage au Kenya.
