All blood spilled into the earth makes its way to a river. Where those rivers meet, Fox attends the birth of a beast, the child of a thousand violent deaths.
Bad Education, written by and starring Jack Whitehall, follows Alfie Wickers the worst teacher to ever (dis)grace the British Education System, and a bigger kid than the pupils he teaches. Abbey Grove school is populated by some of the weirdest teachers you could ever meet: Fraser the hair-brained Headmaster who longs to be down with the kids, Miss Gulliver the biology teacher with a heart of gold but perhaps a dash too much openness and honesty, Miss Mollinson the happily swinging Head of Maths who won't let her hip replacement get in the way and Deputy Headmistress Miss Pickwell who displays all the charm and sensitivity of a Third Reich Dominatrix. Alfie's class is Form K, a bunch of misfits that have been written off by the rest of the school, but Alfie can't help but see a bit of himself in them.
This is about a class of kids and their teacher's quest to get through life and get the best results with the minimum amount of effort possible. Sadly it's not an equation that always adds up. From a disastrous parents' evening to cringe-worthy sex-education ons to life threatening self-defence classes to school elections full of dirty tricks and a school trip to see a rhino pig; Bad Education is school life as you've never seen it before. Bad Education: The Teacher's Handbook is filled with hilarious content from both the first and upcoming second series from pupil's report cards and the graffiti found in the staff toilets, to survival tips for school trips and the best ways to skive while teaching a on.

Have you ever wondered about the creation of the Master Sword? How Ganon came to be in the first place? Why fairies always hide in caves? Perhaps how Link went from an orphan kid to the best swordsman in the world merely by picking one up? I certainly did. Join Link in my personal version of how I think it all began. This tale of training and wonder will answer questions you've always wanted to know, as well as create a few new ones when you get swept up in my very own Zelda universe.
Join in as he trains in the art of battle with a relent teacher. Laugh along at the smart remarks and as references to silly original Zelda situations arise and are finally looked at without gamer's goggles. This novel should have you as captivated as the story lines always had me ... until he shot magic from the sword, but only when at full health. (Come on, what was that?) After you read it, stay tuned, because the book won't end here. Join the ride! Disclaimer: "Hyrule: A Zelda Story" is an original work of fan fiction.

“What makes this journey so inspiring is Mooney’s transcendent humor; the self he has become does not turn away from old pain but can laugh at it, make fun of it, make it into something beautiful.”—Los Angeles Times Labeled “dyslexic and profoundly learning disabled,” Jonathan Mooney was a short-bus rider—a derogatory term used for kids in special education. To learn how others had moved beyond labels, he bought his own short bus and set out cross-country, looking for kids who had dreamed up magical, beautiful ways to overcome the obstacles that separated them from the so-called normal world. The Short Bus is his irreverent and poignant record of that odyssey, meeting thirteen people in thirteen states who taught Mooney that there’s no such thing as normal—and that to really live, every person must find their own special way of keeping on. The Short Bus is a unique gem, propelled by Mooney’s heart, humor, and outrageous rebellions.
