From USA Today best-selling author Leslie Langtry comes the killer start to a brand-new multiauthor series.... Nani Johnson thought she had it made when she moved from Kansas to the resort town of Aloha Lagoon, Kauai. In spite of her certifiably crazy mom, Nani is determined that nothing will stop her from becoming a ukulele virtuoso! Unfortunately her Julliard training doesn´t help her break into the local music scene due to some heavy competition from the Terrible Trio - three hostile local musicians. The only work she finds is a few bar mitzvahs and gigs at the kitschy Blue Hawaii Wedding Chapel. But when one of Nani´s competitors drops dead right after a public feud, Nani becomes the police´s main suspect. A missing murder weapon, mysterious threats, and a heck of a frame-up job all have Nani worrying she´ll be trading in her flowery muumuus for prison orange. Enter hunky local botanist Nick Woodfield, who just might be able to help her clear her name...that is if he doesn´t have secrets of his own.

Have you got an itch to start your own business, go to the North Pole, retrain, lose weight, get promoted, learn to play the ukulele? Or do you just have a nagging sense that there must be more to life? If there is something you really want to do, but secretly fear you’ll never do it, then you need this. This is your kick in the pants. To make your thing happen, you have to climb into the ring. You have to face your fears and move from talking to doing. Of course, it’s right and natural to have fears, but understanding them will keep you on top. And then you’ll find that starting can instantly make things change. So say farewell to the status quo. And that’s the trick, you see. Simply start somewhere. Anywhere. But do it now. For those working for others or for themselves, for those in love or out of love, for those who are artistic or scientific, the busy and the clock-watchers… but mostly for those with ambition: This is what you need to start. Waiting is futile. Starting is progress. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Imogen Church. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/adbl/013407/bk_adbl_013407_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

Melodien in Rot, Gelb, Blau... - ein Spiel mit Stimmungen und eine Einladung, selbst den Farben Ausdruck zu geben: zu malen, zu tanzen, zu spielen... Die Autorin Jutta Bauer hat viele mehrfach ausgezeichnete Bilderbücher in ihrem ganz unverwechselbaren Stil gemacht. Für ´´Schreimutter´´ erhielt sie 2001 den Deutschen Jugendliteraturpreis. Die Musiker Wolfang von Henko, Frank Wulff (beide ehemals ´´Ougenweide´´) und Henning Stoll haben verschiedene große Theaterproduktionen musikalisch begleitet. In die Musik für ´´Die Königin der Farben´´ haben sie all ihre Begeisterung und Erfahrung einfließen lassen, um die Farben akustisch erfahrbar zu machen. Mit Instrumenten wie z. B. Mandoline, Ukulele, indisches Harmonium, Nyckelharpa und vielen anderen ungewöhnlichen Instrumenten. 1. Sprache: Deutsch. Erzähler: Katharina Thalbach.

Jace Clayton has traveled the world collecting and playing music as DJ /rupture, and he gives Kurt a lesson in spinning records. Plus, the singer-songwriter Lydia Loveless overcame her social anxiety by coming to terms with the fact that everyone is laughing at you. And indie lightning rod Amanda Palmer picked up the ukulele on a whim, but when she started playing Radiohead´s famously downbeat songs on it, she discovered the perfect mix of sweet and salty.
