Summary: This volume provides hundreds of reproductions of French painter Claude Monet's (1840-1926) work, in addition to biographical information and primary resources about Monet's life, including newspaper articles; letters and reminiscences from friends, fellow artists, and relatives. The editor also provides dozens of essays written by various scholars and art historians about Monet and his contemporaries. Monet was a founder of French impressionist painting, and the most consistent and prolific practitioner of the movement's philosophy of expressing one's perceptions before nature, especially as applied to en plein-air landscape painting. The editor provides criticism by such classic authors as Proust and Zola, as well as in-depth interviews with Monet himself.

Obi the Gerbil is home alone!

Obi's owner is on vacation, and the neighbor feeding the pets has forgotten all about the gerbil tucked away in her cage. Obi loves her cozy home, but without food and water she must escape to survive. So, taking on the courage of her namesake ( Star Wars Jedi knight Obi-Wan), she breaks out and meets her fellow pets'cats up to no good, a maniacal tarantula, an insecure snake, a grumpy mouse, and a crotchety dog. Obi finds danger, but also makes new friends as she embarks on her great adventure. This hilarious novel about perseverance and pluck is enhanced with funny cartoon illustrations.
