When they went to school that day, the ten children had no idea that their lives were about to be drastically changed, or that they would be transported into the Middle Ages and end up in the midst of a battle that would change world history. Constantinople, under siege by the Turks, was about to fall. Cannons would fire, ships would burn, screams of charging Turks would fill their ears. Follow the students as they encounter the famous Italian soldier Guistiniani, and as they fight by his side. Meet courageous Emperor Constantine XI, who, though hugely outnumbered, fought the Turks to the death to protect his city. Could the children help save the city which the Roman emperor, Constantine I, had named for himself, and which so long had stood as a bastion of Christianity? What was the purpose of their sudden arrival there? Would their faith stand the test? Would they ever get home?

"Pictures illustrate the story so well that it] can be told without reading a word of the script . . . teaches values such as imagination, work, resourcefulness and giving to others." --Children's Literature Artist Johnny Gruelle patented a doll in 1915 that he called Raggedy Ann.

Throughout history and across the globe, governments have taken a strong hand in censoring music. Whether in the interests of "safeguarding" the moral and religious values of their citizens or of promoting their own political goals, the character and severity of actions taken to suppress and control music that has been categorized as unacceptable, immoral, or as the Nazi's termed the music of Jewish and modernist composers, "degenerate," ranges from economic sanctions to forced immigration, imprisonment, and death. Yet in almost all cases composers found methods to counter this suppression and to let their voices be heard, even through the very music they were often forced to compose for the oppressing parties. In this first major collection of its kind, thirty contributors tackle centuries of music censorship across the globe from the medieval era to the modern day. Case studies address a number of instances both well- and lesser-known, including the tumultuous history of Wagner and Israel, rap music in the United States, silencing of women composers, and music in post-revolutionary Iran. Sections are organized by nature of censorship - religious, racial, and sexual - and type of government enforcement - democratic, totalitarian, and transitional. Focusing on individual composers and artists as well as eras within single countries, this Handbook champions the efficacy of music as an agent of collective power and resilience.

While most of the public is aware of Raggedy Ann and her brother, Raggedy Andy, most would not be able to name their creator-Johnny Gruelle. Few knew that the father of these famed rag dolls was a premier illustrator, artist, and toy maker of the early twentieth century. This work tells the life of Gruelle through text, photographs, and many delightful illustrations. Hall's research represents a majority of the creations of Johnny Gruelle, available for the first time in one place. The book links the story of Gruelle and his famed rag dolls to twentieth-century American events. It explores the significance of World War I, the Great Depression, and World War II on the growth of the toy industry. Plus, Hall relates how Gruelle's work mirrored the development of American entertainment venues such as newspapers, magazines, and illustrated books. The book also investigates the many prevailing myths about Raggedy Ann, and portrays Johnny Gruelle as a man deeply attuned to the magic and whimsy found in his writings and illustrations. Patricia Hall is a lifelong collector of Raggedy Ann and Andy. In 1990 and 1991 she was curator of the Indiana State Museum's Johnny Gruelle and Raggedy Ann exhibit. When Hall first started collecting Gruelle books and then Raggedy Ann material, she discovered a void of documented information on Gruelle and his dolls. Her efforts have also resulted in Raggedy Ann and More: Johnny Gruelle's Dolls and Merchandise and Raggedy and Andy Postcard Book, both published by Pelican. Authorized by the Gruelle family, Hall's work uses many previously unpublished photographs and verbal accounts from Gruelle's family and friends. Hall says, "The perspective of these individuals was crucial to my understanding and portrayal of Johnny Gruelle the man."
