JEANNE DARC PART ONE READINESS I TKe Refugees IMONE had only a few more steps then the narrow path would make a sudden turn and reveal the highway. With heart beating in her throat, she expectantly took these few steps. Yesterday she had first caught sight of the procession of refugees on the arterial highway. By today it would perhaps have reached the narrow side road. For three weeks there had been talk of the refugees. In the be ginning there were only the Dutch and Belgians, but now the people from the north of France also fled southward before the advancing enemy more and more came, and for the past week the whole of Burgundy had been flooded. Yesterday, when Si mone had gone to town to do her daily household shopping, she had hardly been able to pass through the crowds, and today she had even left her bicycle at home. When Simone Planchard, with her lively imagination, had first heard about refugees, she pictured them as hurrying and fright ened people, always hurrying and always frightened. What she had seen in these, last few days was less complicated but more dreadful it held her fast and kept stirring her up there was no sleep for her at night. As often as she went to the city she had a fear of this pitiful display, but with every day she longed to see it with a sorrowful and turbulent eagerness. Now she reached the bend and could see a stretch of the road. It was a narrow, neglected road, almost always white and lonely, leading nowhere, leading only to the mountain village, Noiret, with its six houses. But today it was as she had feared there were people. The huge stream had spattered drops even to this point. Simone stood still and looked round. A tall, lanky fifteen year-old, she had on her modest light green striped dress which 3 4 Simone she always wore for her shopping a large, closed wicker basket was pressed against her body her slender arms and naked legs protruded from the dress. Her bony, tanned face framed with dark blond hair was tense her dark, deep-set eyes under a low but broad and well-shaped forehead eagerly absorbed all that moved before her in the dust. It was the familiar sight people and vehicles dragging along hopelessly, carriages foolishly piled high with household goods, mattresses on top of automobiles to protect against machine-gunning from low-flying enemy planes, exhausted human beings and animals crawling along without a goal. There stood Simone Planchard at the bend of the road, her narrow, well-formed lips tightly pressed, gazing. She could scarcely be called beautiful, but her intelligent, thoughtful, some what stubborn face with its strong chin and its prominent Bur gundian nose was good to look at. For a full minute, and for another, she stood in the dust and heat of the early afternoon, peering at the fugitives. But then she tore herself away. She had much to do Madame had given her many errands. To be sure, the Villa Monrepos, the home of the Planchard family, was well stocked, but it seemed certain that in another or two or three days it would be impossible to make further purchases...

" The four partners of Meade Pullen and Co felt as though they had already spent a weekend together by the time they reached the small village of Angle situated on the westerly tip of the Pembrokeshire Peninsula. It had been a much longer journey than any of them could have anticipated and they were all exhausted, more so as they had plenty of time to consider the ramifications of their financial situation. Tarquin had suffered most from the enduring hours spent in close proximity to Max and had been ridiculed relentlessly after producing his passport to the man in the tollbooth on the Severn Bridge. He wished he could have stayed at home. After arriving in Angle, they turned right down a rough track and bounced along it until they came upon a tiny beach, just some ten feet wide. They got out of the car and looked around them in bewilderment, having expected to be greeted by a smart hotelier and guided via a ramp into a plush beast of a motorboat. But no one was in sight. Max started to shiver, the few thin strands of hair covering his pate flapping, along with his ears, in the harsh wind. Expletives fell from his annoyed lips but the din created by the huge waves that crashed at the three other partners' feet meant that his efforts at conveying his extreme displeasure were meaningless. Out of the distance a figure clad in oilskins slowly appeared. Eventually, the partners were able to make out that it was a man pulling a trolley on which sat a small rowing boat, its wooden oars clattering against rusty metal rowlocks. Gradually, the man's outline became clearer as it struggled down the track against the force of the wind and finally came to rest inches from where they stood. 'Welcome!' A sturdy man barely pushing five feet in height warmly greeted the partners of Meade Pullen and Co. He pulled off his hood to reveal a head full of red hair. 'Roger!' the ruddy-faced man exclaimed. 'How good to see you again after so many years.' He clasped his guest's hands in both of his and led him towards the edge of the beach. 'But no time for pleasantries. This is the only way to Blewog Island. And you'll all have to hop in as fast as you can.' He dragged the trolley into the raging sea and untied a small boat, allowing it to slide into the water. Almost immediately, a wave lifted the boat's stern high into the air and sent it hurtling back onto the beach. 'As you will no doubt have noted, Roger, the wind is gusting from the north east and that means trouble in these parts.' Roger's glowing face quickly turned ashen. 'And this boat is the only one we have,' he added, referring to the fast-sinking bits of wood that paraded as transport to their weekend retreat. 'Nothing to worry about though. I only had one man overboard on the last visit.' He turned to see the partners' tweed coats flailing wildly behind them as the wind howled once again. The boat, now only partially afloat, was hurled left and right as the tide advanced, creaking threateningly under the strain. Roger raised a carefully polished boot and attempted to place it inside the careering vessel, hopping on the wet sand as he tried to get sufficient leverage to fling himself over its sides. Again and again the wind roared, like a lion before a kill. The partners shook visibly; they were a long way from the safety of the London Civil Courts now. Roger tried again to escape the freezing water as the tiny boat thrashed against his bruising shins but it was only after his footwear had become completely sodden that he finally found himself sitting on the wet seat, wooden oar in hand. He felt like crying; thoughts of Felicity's ankles having long escaped his mind."

Excerpt: The British Rail Class 55 is a class of diesel locomotive built in 1961 and 1962 by English Electric. They were designed for the high-speed express passenger services on the East Coast Main Line between London King's Cross and Edinburgh. They gained the name "Deltic" from the prototype locomotive, DP1 Deltic, which in turn was named for its Napier Deltic power units. Twenty-two locomotives were built: they dominated express passenger services on the East Coast Main Line (ECML) particularly London Leeds and London Edinburgh services until 1978 when InterCity 125 'High Speed Trains' were introduced. 1978 81 saw them gradually relegated to semi-fast or newspaper parcel sleeper services along the ECML (destinations including Cleethorpes, Harrogate, Hull, Scarborough and Aberdeen) plus occasional forays 'offline' York - Liverpool Lime Street semi-fast and Edinburgh - Carlisle via Newcastle stoppers. Withdrawal came at the end of 1981. Six locomotives were preserved and are still running today. A sectioned Napier Deltic engine at the National Railway MuseumFollowing trials with the prototype DP1 Deltic locomotive, an order was placed with English Electric for a production fleet of 22 units (reduced from the originally-planned 23 ), replacing more than twice that number (55) of Gresley Pacifics. A first, was that the locomotives were purchased under a service contract, English Electric agreeing to maintain them, including their engines and generators, for a fixed price. Additional Deltic engines were produced to enable engines to be swapped out regularly for overhaul while keeping the locomotives in service. The locomotives were assigned to three locomotive depots: Finsbury Park in London, Gateshead over the Tyne from Newcastle, and Haymarket in Edinburgh. They arrived from the manufacturer painted in two-tone green, the dark BR green on top, with a narrower strip of a lighter, lime green along the bottom. This helped to disguise the bulk of the locomotive body. The

Fantastic Adventures of Baron Munchausen Enchanted Lion Books
Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna
Munchausen is the father of all fantastic liars, and as such, he is part magician and entertainer and part scoundrel-but a charming one, of course! Here, in simple language, Heinz Janisch retells the best-known Munchausen stories with humor and playfulness, making for a lighter and more whimsical presentation than usual. These retellings are mixed with never-before-heard adventures that were supposedly found only recently among the long-lost possessions of the well-known Baron of Lies. Could it be that new Munchausen material only recently came to light? Or might Janisch be playing with us, weaving more magic and mischief into Munchausen as he goes along, compounding the tallness of these already tall tales? Only Janisch knows for sure, but it hardly matters, given the thrill and pleasure of the stories he has to relate. Aljoscha Blau illustrates Munchausen's fabulous journeys and exciting adventures with gorgeous imaginative pictures that are sure to entrance both children and adults. Heinz Janisch was born in Austria in 1960 and studied German literature in Vienna. He has published numerous books, including many children's titles, which have been translated into more than twelve languages. He was nominated for the 2009 Lindgren Memorial Award and has been nominated for the 2010 Hans Christian Andersen Award. In 2008 he received the Austrian picture book award. He lives in Vienna. Aljoscha Blau was born in 1972 in St. Petersburg and has been living in Germany since 1990. He studied art in Hamburg, has received several awards, and has exhibited his works in Paris, New York, Hamburg, and Bologna. He lives in Berlin with his wife and two children.
