Tales from the Times by Lisa Belkin

Book Description

A food editor befriends a chicken in his Queens backyard. A ten- year-old child prodigy learns quantum physics. A thief in Rome steals 1,000 euros-from the bottom of an outdoor fountain. These are the stories that make us smile, wonder, and think. They are real-life stories about real-life people, all of which have appeared on the pages of The New York Times. A perfect primer on humanity, Tales from the Times will introduce young readers to people and places that captivate the mind. There are certain human-interest stories that people just can't stop talking about-twins separated at birth or a five-year-old taking his mother's car for a joyride. Now, in this wonderfully eclectic compilation of articles, readers will find many of the most talked about stories from The New York Times. With stories from Randy Kennedy, William Grimes, Charlie LeDuff, Nicholas D. Kristof, Lisa Belkin, Jane Gross, and many more favourite New York Times reporters and columnists.
