BALTIC HOLIDAY: In this Chang and La Blonde Action-Adventure, the action quickly moves to Lithuania where Dana La Blonde and Betty Chang hope to catch up with Lithuanian girlfriend Ina Stern. The two Boca detectives get far more than they had bargained for in the way of action, adventure, and near death. It turns out to be even less a holiday than their recent adventure in Casablanca. They smell drug smuggling in the most improbable place. The "ghost" of a long dead nemesis is very much alive and dangerous. Friend Ina turns out to be a far different person than they thought her to be. They learn of a Russian plan to destabilize Lithuania and do their usual part to save the world.
Acclaimed illustrator James Gulliver Hancock has an obsession with re-imaging his world with his drawings. His extensive travels are a key part of his creative drive. Combined with his obsession with scale and detail, it has culminated in Gulliver's New Travels, a stunning creative colouring book that is a modern take on the 18th-century Gulliver's Travels, playing with scale as in the land of Lilliput and the giants of Brobdingnag.
