An environmental classic ready for a new generation of YA readers! A Girl of the Limberlost takes place in Indiana, in and around the famous Limberlost Swamp.

The book features Elnora Comstock, a high school student whose mother blames her for her father’s death.

As a little girl growing up in post-World War II America, Constance loved her mother’s vivid bedtime stories of a motherless prince. When Constance was six, that life ended; she spent the rest of her childhood with her uncle and aunt in Canada. At 17, bored and lonely after her best friend moved away, Constance smacks her head, wakes up in the country of Avonea, meets the prince of her mother’s childhood stories, and discovers that her mother had made the same mystical journey. Is this world of romance and mystery real or just a dream? Dream or real, Constance just wants to go home because she knows her uncle will be frantic with worry for her. Prince Drinian and his advisor Woodphere agree to help her, and Constance finds herself living an adventure story as the three journey through dangerous country peopled with enemies of the future king. A Path Toward Home is the first book in The Annals of Avonea, an adventure series inspired by The Chronicles of Narnia and written by high school student Heather Lorenz. “… the plot of this book is very exciting, with twists and turns that keep you reading. The ending was unexpected and satisfying. I really enjoyed it and I would recommend it to anyone!” says one reviewer.
The Shark in the Park by Mark Watson and Pablo Michau
“Highly original, imaginative and thrilling.”
“The best illustrated children’s book of 2014, hands down.”
“An old, old monster in a supposedly safe environment, one familiar to all. A walk in the park will never be the same again.”
“A hit! A brave and brilliant hit! An immediate children’s classic.”
The air is misty, bright and cool, the morning Michael walks to school.
At the boundary of the park he waits, nervously he hesitates.
The day warms up, the sun shines down and Mike walks on, into town.
Gnarly branches, crook and tight, curl around the ghostly light.
Suddenly he freezes, weak at the knees, what is that swimming beneath the trees?
Terrifying, funny, thrilling! This new, beautifully illustrated children’s book is available in paperback and digital versions. The Kindle version includes links to exclusive interactive content.
