Jacqueline Sheehan made serious waves with her much beloved runaway bestseller, Lost and Found (“The best book I’ve read in a long time” —Susan Elizabeth Phillips). Now she treats readers to a sequel, Picture This—a story of rebirth and personal redemption that is as moving, funny, and heart-soaring as its predecessor. Whip-smart contemporary women’s fiction with heart and soul, in Picture This, Rocky Pelligrino is back on Peaks Island off the coast of Maine, along with Cooper the dog, the beautiful black Labrador retriever who gave her a new “leash” on life. But this time a new wrinkle warps the fabric of her world when a young girl shows up on Rocky’s doorstep claiming to be the long-lost daughter of her late husband.

The follow-up to last season’s Picture This! Mazes offers two types of mazes and two types of fun—plus, every finished maze becomes a picture. In every case, solvers begin by finding a clear path from start to finish. But that’s when the road forks: in the basic maze, all you do is mark the route you traced with a thick, dark line. Immediately, the hidden image is revealed. For the reversed mazes (labeled with an “R”), you lightly trace the right path in pencil and then color in all the wrong ones to get the picture. These large puzzles—similar to but more challenging than Super Hidden Picture Mazes—show people dancing, animals, portraits of famous figures, and other terrific things.

""An exciting and informative anthology which will serve as an inspiration to both researchers and teachers."" -- European Journal of Communication With the proliferation of films, television programs, and videos about the arts, this book tackles how these media outlets have approached their subject. It invites debate about the relations between art forms, popular cultural practices (including watching TV), and audiences, as more people receive their understanding of culture and the arts through television than through visits to opera houses, theaters, or art galleries. This collection of articles addresses topics such as the history of art coverage on British television, how the media represents feminist art, and the impact of various postmodern arts practices.
