Thimblerig is a little groundhog with big problems. He’s a loner con-artist who’s losing his mojo; the wild dogs who run the forest harass him at every turn; he’s having vivid nightmares of apocalyptic floods; and worst of all, he believes he sees unicorns when everyone knows unicorns are only the stuff of legend. But what one animal might call a problem, Thimblerig calls an opportunity.
In a moment of inspiration, he comes up with the ultimate con: persuade as many suckers as he can that a world-ending flood is coming; the fabled unicorns have told him where the only safe place will be; and only he can lead them to safety. All for a reasonable price, of course. When the flood really does come, Thimblerig has a choice: either save the ones who trusted him, or lose everything. And that’s when he discovers that his problems have only just begun. Age Level: 10 - 18 | Grade Level: 4 - 12

Age Level: 7 - 18 | Grade Level: 2 - 12 Three fifteen-year-olds hunting for geodes in the desert and coming across a mirage of a forest might be bizarre enough. But when a woman appears in the forest and throws a golden apple into the sand before the mirage blinks and vanishes, Kree, Pip and India soon find themselves with the power to pause time.
Idunna, the Norse Goddess of Spring and Rejuvenation, grows the mythical apples that provide the Gods with youth and immortality. Tricked by Loki, she loses her supply of apples, and urgently discards the Kallisti – an all-powerful golden apple created by the Gods - to keep it from enemy hands. Idunna plans to retrieve the apple, without knowing that the teens have already spotted it.
Kree, Pip and India discover that simply holding the golden apple and saying 'stop' and 'go' will pause and restart time. . . a pretty amazing thing to be able to do, especially when you accidentally prevent a robbery and save a man’s life. This opens their eyes to the possibilities of the good they could do with the apple. They soon realize, however, that even good deeds and the best intentions can sometimes come at a price.

Chris Mechling's new historical novel, Peter, introduces readers to the amazing true story behind the fairy tale of Peter Pan. The book tells the adventures of the real boy who came to London and became a well-known figure more than a hundred years before James Barrie penned his classic.
Peter the Wild Boy lived in eighteenth century England, through the reigns of three kings (all named George), and achieved legendary status in his own lifetime. He was not only a popular figure, but also drew intense philosophical and scientific study, and was a subject of interest to literary figures such as Daniel Defoe and Jonathan Swift. Peter retained a youthful appearance throughout his life, and had a joyful, intuitive spirit that was both challenging and infectious.
This imaginative dramatization of the life of Peter the Wild Boy captures the joy, innocence and fire of a bright, feral child living in the midst of the Age of Enlightenment. It is narrated by the girl who perhaps knew him best. The epic story of his life, spanning approximately seventy years, navigates a tumultuous and thoughtful period in English history, rich with characters.

The Benefit of Dual Language Books
For children, learning a new language in the context of a story is such a powerful learning tool, because they can use the images, characters and plot to help them remember words and phrases. Even simple foreign words and phrases can give a child a completely new perspective and open their eyes to new ways of seeing the world.
Ancient Rome has both an interesting and beautiful past. The way it was developed all came from two twin brothers, where one would be killed and betrayed, and the other would found a city that would build itself up into an Empire.
Learn about the Roman kings that governed the early city, to the Roman Republic, all the way to the great Roman Empire. Even the gladiators shaped Roman culture socially, and it ties right into the way the social system was built in Rome. Even though that social system would change with time, just as the laws.
Roman civilization was advanced, and it would become more advanced as it went from a Republic to an Empire. Though, with insane emperors such as Nero taking the lead, it would have times that it slipped back as well. Ancient Rome would rise and fall and recover until the final fall. Opening this book will teach you about its glory, its history, and the truth of Ancient Rome and how it all began.
