Buffalo soldier by Tanya Landman( Book )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 267 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"What kind of a girl steals the clothes from a dead man's back and runs off to join the army? A desperate one. That's who. At the end of the American Civil War, Charley - a young African-American slave from the deep south - is ostensibly freed. But then her adopted mother is raped and lynched at the hands of a mob and Charley is left alone. In a terrifyingly lawless land, where the colour of a person's skin can bring violent death, Charley disguises herself as a man and joins the army. Soon she's being sent to the prairies to fight a whole new war against the 'savage Indians'. Trapped in a world of injustice and inequality, it's only when Charley is posted to Apache territory that she begins to learn what it is to be truly free"--Publishers website http://www.walker.co.uk
Shapes, reshape! by Silvia Borando( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 252 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

EARLY LEARNING: NUMBERS & COUNTING. Count down from 10 to 1 in this playful interactive exploration of the shapes that make up our favourite animals. The shapes, at first, are lined up neatly in rows. But, at the turn of the page, they're mixed up, moved around and reshaped into all kinds of animals! Buzzy and clucky and scaly and sluuuurpy! Look - these green shapes reshape into scaly things. What they could be? Turn the page to reveal ... of course! 3 alligators, snip, snap and snappy! As we visit ten groups of shapes, can you try and guess what animal the shapes will become before the shapes reshape? (But, with the animals getting bigger and more ferocious each time, watch out for a rather fiery finale!)
