This is a shimmering story from the Kingdom of Glitterland. Princess Sparkle loves all manner of sparkly, twinkly things, so she is shocked when she finds that the world outside the royal palace is often not very beautiful at all - something must be done! This delightful boardbook has indented foil details on every page, bringing to life all the dazzling gemstones, shiny shoes, scintillating chandeliers, beguiling butterflies and even flashy fish. Told with simple language that youngsters can follow easily, whether they are read to or try by themselves. When the King and Queen of Glitterland had a baby girl, the first thing she reached for was her mother's second-best crown. So the King decided to call her Princess Sparkle. The name suits her very well, for she adores jewels and sequins and anything that gleams, and every day she wears the sparkliest dress you could imagine. If there is one thing that Princess Sparkle loves as much as her jewels (of which she has lots), it is parties! You can go with her as she admires all the radiant clothes, and the whole palace twinkles with flickering candles - all of which is highlighted with special holographic foil. However, when Princess Sparkle leaves the castle for the very first time, it comes as a shock. Everything in the world outside is dull and ugly. Even the birds look bland, and the river that winds down the valley is brown and sluggish. Follow the princess as she livens up the waters with sapphires, decorates the trees with diamonds, adds pretty pearls to petals, and uses sequins to make the birds bright and beautiful. Young readers will certainly take a shine to Princess Sparkle's good deeds.

Guests may stay in Canyon Inn, one of the seven family cabins or in the campground. Park visitors will enjoy camping, hiking and fishing at McCormick's Creek State Park. Visitors will learn everything they need to enjoy their visit to family friendly McCormick's Creek State Park.
[M]ethodologically innovative, theoretically sophisticated, ethnographically engaging, and beautifully written - what makes this book especially noteworthy is the author's ability to bring closely observed research data into productive dialogue with general social scientific theories. Michael W. Scott, London School of Economics [A] fascinating manuscript. It is clearly and straightforwardly written, adds new and important ethnographic material to the small but growing contemporary literature of Island Melanesia, and is relevant to current debates in a number of ways. James Leach, University of Aberdeen The inhabitants of Pororan Island, a small group of 'saltwater people' in Papua New Guinea, are intensely interested in the movements of persons across the island and across the sea, both in their everyday lives as fishing people and on ritual occasions. From their observations of human movements, they take their cues about the current state of social relations. Based on detailed ethnography, this study engages current Melanesian anthropological theory and argues that movements are the Pororans' predominant mode of objectifying relations. Movements on Pororan Island are to its inhabitants what roads are to 'mainlanders' on the nearby larger island, and what material objects and images are to others elsewhere in Melanesia. Katharina Schneider is Lecturer at the Institute for Ethnology at Heidelberg University. She obtained her PhD in Social Anthropology from the University of Cambridge.
