At an unspecified time in the near future, the world has enjoyed decades of peace and prosperity thanks to the world-wide dissemination of an anti-violence vaccine that was invented by a ruthless industrialist named Nolebody. When scientists discover that the vaccine has a half-life -- and that this half-life has already been reached -- the administration is not prepared to keep order, since the military has been disbanded and no one knows how to operate the obsolete weaponry. In a cynical plot to restore stability, the government's leaders resolve to award the nation's highest honour, the Nolebody Award, on a reclusive, somewhat dim-witted man who lives in a shack in the desert and fashions sculptures from feathers, dead lizards, and other found objects. Leonard Bentwood's simple life and values are touted as the epitome of good citizenship and national pride. The unwitting Bentwood accepts, and travels to the capital to accept the award. In a staggering example of the power of unintended consequences, his acceptance speech triggers a revolution that sweeps the government from power. This wise and thoughtful fable entertains as it lampoons governments of every stripe.… (más)

This was an assigned textbook for an information literacy class. I am sure that the book is an excellent resource if you are studying to be a reading specialist or an elementary school teacher. As a student to become a library media specialist, I found this book to be irrelevant. So I am giving the book 3 stars because it is an excellent resource for someone out there but it didn't help me. If you are going to be a reading specialist, I highly recommend buying this book. The author provides great examples to help with teaching strategies. This book also includes a CD and the publisher has a companion website for the book which gives quizzes to test your comprehension of the chapter. ( )
