The tranquility of the quiet community of Kabashiro was shattered when North Korean ballistic test missiles soared over its skies, sending residents of the small seaside town scrambling for cover. The excitement had barely died down after the all-clear signal when a pod of whales beach themselves on its shores. The indigenous Ainu inhabitants of the town saw all these as signs of the gods’ displeasure and when graves of their ancestors were disturbed, Ryohei feared the worst. But Kabashiro’s charismatic mayor has every reason to be optimistic; after all, he just pulled off a deal for a multi-billion dollar investment which promises thousands of jobs and the biggest ever economic windfall for the town. The Peridot Hokkaido Resort will be a feather in the cap for the prefecture’s young governor who some say may be Prime Minister of Japan one day. The tiny Ainu fraternity are less than enthusiastic though, as they’ve seen too many opportunities pass them by and their people continue to be left behind economically as they town prospered. Michiru is one young, bright hope for the Ainu People but her heart is set on leaving Kabashiro and her accursed Ainu heritage. Haru supports his sister’s ambitions for Tokyo but his affinity is to the land of their forefathers although he is unlikely to follow in the long line of the family’s artisanal fishing livelihood. Everything changed when it was discovered that the new resort will be built on sacred ancestral Ainu land which the government had previously pledged to return to the Ainu People. The feted American investor, Peridot Resorts LLC, and their local business partner, Toyodai, became pariahs overnight but the governor is determined to push through with development as the financial and political stakes are too high. The battle lines are drawn up where the minnow Ainus looked doomed to lose until the most unexpected saviour rose among their ranks. Aided by the invisible hands of unseen actors, the Ainus head for a showdown with the powers that be, but there may be more that meets the eye and it is unclear who’s friend and who’s foe. A quirky professor hailing from Virginia could unwittingly bring a beacon of hope for the Ainus as the wrath of the gods descend upon the town. With the eyes of the world focused on Kabashiro, deliverance is out of the Ainus’ own hands as the escalating events spirals towards a climatic end.

I am how I've always been. My name is Auden Dare. I am eleven years old. Auden Dare has an unusual perspective on life: he cannot see in colour. He's always had this rare condition - and life is beginning to get harder for Auden. The war for water that is raging across the world is getting a little closer all the time. It hardly rains any more, anywhere. Everyone is thirsty all the time, and grubby, and exhausted. Auden has to learn to live without his father, who is away fighting, and has had to move to a new town with his mother, and start a new school, where everyone thinks he's a weirdo. But when he meets Vivi Rookmini, a smiling girl bright with cleverness, his hopes begin to lift. It soon becomes clear to Auden, though, that there are some strange things afoot in his new hometown. He and his mother have moved into the old cottage of his recently-dead uncle Jonah Bloom - a scientist and professor at the university. The place is in disarray - and although Auden's mother tells him it's because Jonah was a messy old thing, Auden knows differently. Someone else did this - someone who was looking for something of Jonah's. Auden had heard too that Jonah was working on something that could cure Auden's condition - could this be it? Then Auden and Vivi make an extraordinary discovery. Hidden away under the shed at the bottom of Jonah's garden is an engimatic and ingenious robot, who calls himself Paragon. A talking, walking, human-like robot. Apparently built by Jonah - but why? The answer to this will take Auden and Vivi on a thrilling journey of discovery as they seek to find out just what exactly Paragon is - and what link he has to Auden - and find that the truth is bigger and more wonderful than either of them could have imagined.

Winner of the 1988 Clark Vincent Award for an "outstanding contribution to the profession through a literary work" and translated into four languages, the original edition of Therapeutic Metaphors for Children and the Child Within was considered a groundbreaking addition to the field of child and adolescent psychotherapy. The 1986 edition was the first—and to this day the only—book that solely intertwines the extraordinary foundational teachings and philosophies of Milton H. Erickson and creative healing approaches for children and adolescents. With resiliency at its core, this revision now brings forward important topics related to neurobiology and cultural value of metaphor and play, along with fresh case examples and creative activities to a new generation of mental health, education, and coaching professionals.
