Meet Frazz, your typical Renaissance man--successful songwriter, talented triathlete, and elementary school janitor. Okay, maybe Frazz isn't quite that typical, and this is exactly why the students at Bryson Elementary School love him. Frazz's bantering and philosophizing with students is always witty and sharp, yet accessible and enriching. He's also made a name for himself amongst the school's faculty--he's captured the admiration of Principal Spaetzle, the romantic affections of first-grade teacher Miss Plainwell, and the exasperation of cynical Mrs. Olsen. "A Tangled Web" is an e-book original collection of cartoons that showcases the funniest of shenanigans that ensue between Frazz and Bryson Elementary's students and faculty alike. This compilation includes exclusive commentary from "Frazz'"s creator, Jef Mallet himself. Mallet's work was nominated by the National Cartoonists Society for a Reuben division award for Best Newspaper Comic Strip in 2004, and "Frazz" has won two Wilbur Awards in 2003 and 2005, which honors excellence in communicating values and ethics. Indeed, within "Frazz"'s jokes and antics is the heart of the strip: insight that makes learning fun for kids and inevitable for adults.

Ένα σπονδυλωτό μυθιστόρημα με ιστορίες ανθρώπων που έζησαν στην Αλεξάνδρεια του Μεσοπολέμου, εκκινώντας από τον Καβάφη, προς το τέλος σχεδόν της ζωής του, και συνεχίζοντας με πρόσωπα παροίκων, άγνωστα μεν τα περισσότερα, που έρχονται όμως σε επαφή με πραγματικά πρόσωπα που ξεχώρισαν τότε (Τσίρκας, Φόστερ, Ουγκαρέτι κ.λπ.) και συνδέονται μεταξύ τους με τον έναν ή τον άλλον τρόπο, δημιουργώντας ένα ενιαίο ψηφιδωτό, μια εικόνα της πόλης – ενώ η πόλη καθεαυτή, και πιο συγκεκριμένα η γειτονιά της οδού Λέψιους, αποτελεί τον πυρήνα αλλά και τον συνδετικό κρίκο ανάμεσά τους.
