Young Leonardo:Art and Life in Fifteenth-Century Florence Larry J. Feinberg
After falling off the wagon and becoming what he so clearly and strongly resisted, a consumer, Josh Swenson (aka: Larry) finds himself in a hyper-paranoid state of no return. That is, until he is kidnapped and coaxed back into resurfacing as his old persona. Before long, Larry is back on the scene with much more on his mind that a gospel Web site; this time Larry wants to effect change in government. What starts out as a small campaign to get the younger population to vote turns into a run for the presidency. Can Larry really take on George Bush? In this very smart, very witty novel, Janet Tashjian brings the political world to the forefront and exposes it from many different points of view. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jesse Eisenberg.

Josh Swensen is not your average 17-year-old. At the age of two, he was figuring out algebraic equations with colored magnetic numbers. He is a prodigy who only wants to make the world a better place. Josh´s wish comes true when his virtual alter ego, Larry, becomes a huge media sensation. Larry has his own Web site where he posts sermons on anti-consumerism and has a large following of adults and teens. Meanwhile, Larry´s identity is a mystery to everyone. While it seems as if the whole world is trying to figure out Larry´s true identity, Josh feels trapped inside his own creation. What will happen to the world, and to Larry, if he is exposed? 1.

Orphans - a Larry Lir mystery. An Irish boy with dark, magical powers.Who couldn´t help but be inspired by the phenomenal success of the Harry Potter series? I got the idea for Orphans from this, but I wanted an Irish character; and I wanted a story rooted in Celtic mythology, legend, and myth; and I wanted to combine all these elements into a modern setting that children could enjoy. I wanted to incorporate modern technology, modern forensics, and modern thinking into a spellbinding tale for children, and in Larry Lir, I think I found that character. Larry is a 12-year-old who fends mostly for himself in a rambling mansion on the Hill of Howth, in Dublin.Orphans is, I believe, aptly titled. The main character, Larry, is left an orphan following the brutal murder of his parents. When three Cuban children, recently orphaned themselves, appeal to Larry for help, he has to take up their case. The shadow of Charles Dickens and the splendid Oliver Twist looms a bit here. Even his archenemy is an orphan.There is an important underlying message in the book that relates to basic press freedom and democratic values. The book is set for the most part in Ireland, both in Dublin and Wexford. Other locations used are the USA and Cuba.There are strong hints of mythology like the famous fable of Oisin, warned not to dismount from his horse when he returned to Irish soil lest the years catch up with him.The Children of Lir, of whom Larry is a direct descendant, also play a role in this tale. A curse from their time hangs over Larry.The book shows, I hope, the independent spirit that dwells within children and the battle of triumph over evil. 1. Language: English.

Josh Swensen (otherwise known as Larry) can´t seem to get off the couch. His usual overactive imagination and save-the-world mindset have all but vanished, and his best friend Beth is seriously worried.When Beth coaxes Josh into taking a walk at Walden Pond, Josh meets Gus Muldarian, a spiritual guru who convinces him to join his study group as a way to find deeper meaning in life. Josh thinks Gus is a joke. Still, feeling desperate and seeing no way out of his rut, he agrees to try it. What begins as a harmless Thoreau-esque search for meaning soon turns into Josh´s most chaotic and profound adventure yet. After the success of The Gospel According to Larry and Vote for Larry, Janet Tashjian returns with yet another tour de force - a book that explores important topics and will keep teens hooked right until the unexpected end. 1.
