Bestselling and Newbery Medal-winning author Louis Sachar knows how to make readers laugh. And there are laughs galore in the Wayside School Collection Box Set, which contains all three Wayside School paperbacks! There'd been a terrible mistake. Wayside School was built with thirty classrooms one on top of the other instead of next to each other! (The builder said he was very sorry.) That may be why all kinds of funny things happen at Wayside School...especially on the thirteenth floor. You'll meet Mrs. Gorf, the meanest teacher of all; terrible Todd, who always gets sent home early; and John, who can read only upside down-along with all the other kids in the crazy mix-up school that came out sideways. But you'll never guess the truth about Sammy, the new kid...or what's in store for Wayside School on Halloween! More than nine millions readers have laughed at the wacky stories of Sideways Stories from Wayside School; Wayside School Gets a Little Stranger; and Wayside School Is Falling Down. So what are you waiting for? Come visit Wayside School!
Mild and meek teacher David had a very big secret. He was a secret gambler and in massive debt to the biggest shark in town. When Clifton came calling, the only collateral he had left was his pretty wife and daughter. Extract: "We're gonna make sure you look your best. Undress!" Heather just stared back. "In front of you! You must be joking!" The next moment she was picking herself up off the floor with her ears ringing, and she realized Serena had slapped her hard across the face. "I will only tell you to do things once, you silly little slut," the other woman barked. "Let's see if you're a quick learner. Now strip!" Heather considered her options for no more than five more seconds before her shaky hands came up to slowly unbutton her summer dress, her pretty face burning with embarrassment. 1. Language: English.

Wordsmith Jaine Austen's ship has finally come in. Her new teaching gig on a fancy cruise line nabs her a free vacation--and access to a 24-hour buffet! But sooner than you can say "bon voyage," Jaine's all-expenses-paid trip to the Mexican Riviera seems destined to be a wreck… Things are already off to a rocky start when Jaine discovers a stowaway amidst her luggage--her persnickety cat Prozac. Jaine's sinking sensation grows stronger at dinner, where she meets chatty Emily Pritchard, a wealthy seventy-year-old who's traveling with her two nephews. Jaine can't help noticing the tension among them, especially when the cruise's charming--and sleazy--British dancer, Graham, whisks Emily out onto the dance floor. Soon Emily is accepting Graham's invitations to every social event on the ship. Two nights later the bubbly couple announces their engagement, but the news is quickly overshadowed the next morning by the discovery of Graham's body with an ice pick protruding from his chest… Between hiding a furry fugitive, flirting with Emily's nephew Robbie, and baiting the hook for a clever murderer, Jaine is about to dive into her most dangerous case yet… 1.

Are you ready to take your soccer game to the next level? Improving your mental strength could be the answer.Things don’t always go our way. That is true in life, in our career, in our relationships and, of course, in sport. That sweet hit from the tee that lands perfectly on the fairway, and races on and on…and on, straight into the bunker.Or the day that our serve just will not function. Is there anything more frustrating than sending hit after hit into the net? Well, of course, there are many things harder to bear, but it doesn’t seem so at the time. Or the day we play the boss at squash, and aim to push him just so far before he defeats us with a series of devastating volleys and bias shots to the corner. Except, they just don’t come off, and we end up winning, knowing that the lift will continue to stop for us at the fifth floor, at least until next time.But these are all examples of individual sports; occasions where if things go against us it is only we that suffer, as annoying as that is. But in team games, such as soccer, we can end up letting down the entire team. Nobody wants to do that. Perhaps more significantly, we do not want the fear of that happening. Often it is the fear of doing something wrong, of making a mistake, of giving the referee a chance to award a penalty against us, that causes that particular disaster to occur.The mark of the very best players is that they have the mental toughness to overcome these moments of adversity. To accept that there are times when matters do not pan out as they hope, and having accepted them, move on without allowing their confidence to drop. Call it resilience, spirit, mental strength or whatever, without a doubt such a mindset is as crucial as having the skills to play at the level to which we aspire.Here's what you'll learn from this audiobook: Importance of mental toughnessUnderstanding your role in the teamGetting a 1.
