Dead Reckoning, the graphic novel imprint of Naval Institute Press, has released an exciting new graphic novel, Once Upon a Time in France.

A new English edition of the French series by Fabien Nury, illustrated by Sylvain Vallée, and translated by Ivanka Hahnenberger, this omnibus edition collects the original series together. Once Upon a Time in France became an international bestseller, selling over one million copies and garnering awards including the BDGest’Arts Best Scenario Award, BDGest’Arts Album of the Year, and Angoulême International Comics Festival Best Series Award, among many others.

Based on a true story, Once Upon a Time in France follows the life of Joseph Joanovici, a Romanian Jew who immigrated to France in the 1920s and became one of the richest men in Europe as a scrap-metal magnate. For some, he was a villain. For others, a hero.

As Germany occupies France, Mr. Joseph thinks his influence can keep his family safe, but he soon finds that the only way to stay one step ahead of the Nazis is to keep his friends close and his enemies closer. Though he plays both sides of the fence as a Nazi collaborator and French resistant, a tangled web of interests forms around him that proves it will take a lot more than money to pay for the survival of his family.

You can download an exclusive extract from the beginning of the novel here, and the full title is available to order on the Eurospan Bookstore now. You can also view more on the Eurospan Instagram.

Death and Survival in the Anti-Communist Violence in East Java, Indonesia
Vanessa Hearman

The wave of anti-communist violence that swept across Indonesia in 1965-66 produced a particularly high death toll in East Java.

To coincide with the release of mathematician and award-winning children's book author Richard Evan Schwartz’s latest book Life on the Infinite Farm, we’ve been looking at books which encourage children to dip their toes into the wonderful world of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM).

Schwartz’s fifth book for children, Life on the Infinite Farm teaches about infinity and curved space through stories of whimsical farm animals. Join Gracie, the shoe-loving cow with infinitely many feet, Hammerwood, the gum-loving crocodile with an endless mouth, and their friends as they navigate the challenges that come with being infinitely large. 

Did you ever wonder why some insects can walk on water? Or how the Ancient Egyptians made mummies? Are you curious about why a guitar sounds different from a flute? Gather some everyday materials from around your home and find out the answers with 50 kid-approved science activities from CSIRO Publishing. Discover more about the world of science with Hands-On Science by making dancing slime, rubbery bones, a ping pong ball shooter, ghastly ghostly photos, fizzy dinosaur eggs and a lemon battery.

Zobi and the Zoox tells the tale of Zobi, a brave rhizobia bacterium who teams up with a family of slow but steady zoox (zooxanthellae) when her home comes under threat from a warming ocean and as the coral bleaches, everyone begins to starve. 

Zobi and the Zoox joins CSIRO’s growing collection of books for primary school-aged children which includes Phasmid, The Great Lizard Trek, Bouncing Back and The Squid, the Vibrio and the Moon which is publishing early in 2019.
