<p><b>For fans of<i> Old Yeller </i>and<i> Shiloh, Where the Red Fern Grows</i> is a beloved classic that captures the powerful bond between man and man’s best friend.</b><br /> <br />   Billy has long dreamt of owning not one, but two, dogs. So when he’s finally able to save up enough money for two pups to call his own—Old Dan and Little Ann—he’s ecstatic. It doesn’t matter that times are tough; together they’ll roam the hills of the Ozarks.<br />   Soon Billy and his hounds become the finest hunting team in the valley. Stories of their great achievements spread throughout the region, and the combination of Old Dan’s brawn, Little Ann’s brains, and Billy’s sheer will seems unbeatable. But tragedy awaits these determined hunters—now friends—and Billy learns that hope can grow out of despair, and that the seeds of the future can come from the scars of the past.<br /><b> </b><br /><b><u>Praise for <i>Where the Red Fern Grows</i></u></b><br /> <br /><b>A Top 100 Children’s Novel, <i>School Library Journal</i>'<i>s</i> A Fuse #8 Production</b><br /><b>A Must-Read for Kids 9 to 14, NPR</b><br /><b>Winner of Multiple State Awards</b><br /><b>Over 7 million copies in print!</b><br /> <br />“A rewarding book . . .

Emily has won at her first show in Ireland. She has proved that she can compete and win in any country on any horse and she feels like she is sitting on top of the world. She has forgotten all about the drama back home, which was the reason she left in the first place. <br /><br />But Ireland hasn’t been all drama free. There is a girl who could pass as Jess’s twin, if she didn’t already have one, an Irish girl who holds a claim to Patrick, a claim that Emily doesn’t even want. She is not there to fall in love. At least not with the two-legged variety anyway. Instead a horse has stolen her heart, one who unfortunately Siobhan’s father holds a half share in. <br /><br />And now that the show is over, everyone is gearing up for the big drag hunt, a huge local deal. Emily will ride Victor and tackle some of the toughest terrain she has ever encountered. She may have dabbled in cross country but hunting in Ireland is an entirely different ball game, one where people fall off and horses gallop wild. To prove she is not a timid American rider, Emily will give Victor the ride of his life in hopes of somehow winning the heart of Patrick’s mother, who owns the other share in the horse and just maybe, convince her to send the horse back home with Emily to Florida. <br />

<b><i>New York Times Bestseller! </i><br /><br />A never-before-published, previously unfinished Mark Twain children’s story is brought to life by <b>Philip and Erin Stead, creators of</b> the Caldecott Medal-winning <i>A Sick Day for Amos McGee</i>.</b><br />  <br /> In a hotel in Paris one evening in 1879, Mark Twain sat with his young daughters, who begged their father for a story. Twain began telling them the tale of Johnny, a poor boy in possession of some magical seeds. Later, Twain would jot down some rough notes about the story, but the tale was left unfinished . . . until now.<br />  <br /> Plucked from the Mark Twain archive at the University of California at Berkeley, Twain’s notes now form the foundation of a fairy tale picked up over a century later. With only Twain’s fragmentary script and a story that stops partway as his guide, author Philip Stead has written a tale that imagines what might have been if Twain had fully realized this work.<br />  <br /> Johnny, forlorn and alone except for his pet chicken, meets a kind woman who gives him seeds that change his fortune, allowing him to speak with animals and sending him on a quest to rescue a stolen prince. In the face of a bullying tyrant king, Johnny and his animal friends come to understand that generosity, empathy, and quiet courage are gifts more precious in this world than power and gold.<br />  <br /> Illuminated by Erin Stead’s graceful, humorous, and achingly poignant artwork, this is a story that reaches through time and brings us a new book from America’s most legendary writer, envisioned by two of today’s most important names in children’s literature.<br /><br />"will capture the imaginations of readers of all ages"—<i>USA Today</i>, ★ ★ ★ ★ (out of four stars) <br /><br />★ "Completing a story penned by arguably America's greatest author is no easy feat, but the Caldecott-winning author-illustrator (and husband-wife) team proves more than equal to the task. . . . A pensive and whimsical work that Twain would applaud."—<i>Kirkus</i>, <b>starred review</b><br /><br />★ "a cast of eccentric characters, celestially fine writing, and a crusade against pomp that doesn't sacrifice humor."—<i>Publishers Weekly</i>, <b>starred review</b><br /><br />★ "The result is a gift to the eye. Samuel Langhorne Clemens himself would be proud."—<i>Booklist</i>, <b>starred review<br /></b><br />★ "The combination of Twain’s (often sarcastic) humor and “lessons of life,” a touch of allegory, and Stead’s own storytelling skills result in an awesome piece of fantasy."—<i>School Library Journal</i>, <b>starred review<br /></b><br />"Twain and the two Steads have created what could become a read-aloud classic, perfect for families to enjoy together."—<i>The Horn Book</i><br /><br />"artful and meta and elegant”—<i>The Wall Street Journal<br /><br /></i>"should inspire readers young and old to seek further adventures with Twain."<i>—<i>The Washington Post</i><br /></i><br />"Johnny is destined to become as much a part of Twain lore as Tom, Huck, Jim and The Mysterious Stranger."—<i>Hartford Courant</i><br /><br />"bound to become a reading staple for all ages."—RealSimple.com<br /><br />"Philip Stead brilliantly captures Twain's style, his homespun humor, his wordplay, his biting wit, his sympathy for the powerless and his disdain for the mighty."—<i>The Buffalo News<br /></i>

<b>#1 Bookscan in Juvenile Non-fiction </b><br /><p><br /><b>Be Brave… Stay Wild!</b><br /><p><br /><b>Animal Stories for Kids:</b> <i>Coyote Peterson's Brave Adventures: Wild Animals in a Wild World</i> chronicles some of the wildest encounters Coyote Peterson has had over the course of his travels. The stories begin with his first snapping turtle catch as a kid and lead down a trail of incredible moments he and his camera crew have had while filming their Brave Wilderness shows. From a giant alligator that nearly caught Coyote in its bone crushing jaws, to an 800 pound Grizzly Bear that helped him teach the audience what to do and NOT do if you ever encounter one of these enormous predators in the wild, every tale is laced with fast paced action and daring adventure. With the presence of danger often looming for Coyote, each story reminds the reader that animals rule the wild places of this planet, and if we respect them from a safe distance, even the most frightening creatures are more likely to be afraid of us than we should ever be of them. <br /><p><br />Exciting animal stories for kids of all ages, this collection of short stories aims to give the reader a first-person perspective into some of Coyote’s most harrowing and heartwarming adventures.
