The Happy Hollisters and the Trading Post Mystery (#7 in the Happy Hollisters series)<br /><br />There is great activity in the Hollister household upon the arrival of Domingo, the donkey promised Sue in New Mexico. The excitement mounts higher with the discovery of a note attached to the donkey’s halter signed Y.I.F. So begins one of the two mysteries that run through this book.<br />In the midst of the approaching Christmas season, the Hollisters work out a plan to use Domingo in a special project to provide gifts for the poor children of the town. The project, centered around The Trading Post, Mr. Hollister’s sport and toy store in Shoreham, involves putting a life-sized model of Santa, his sleigh and six reindeer on the roof of the store and then filling the sleigh with gifts contributed by the people of the community.<br />What happens when this wonderful plan seems completely spoiled by the disappearance of the model? Could there be any connection between the notes signed Y.I.F. and the disappearance? The five children find themselves in the middle of one of their most baffling puzzles.<br />Here is a Happy Hollister book with not one, but two exciting mysteries along with the fun and companionship that unite this lively family.<br /><br />First published in 1954, this charming mystery-adventure story, faithfully reproduced, is now available in paperback and eBook for the first time! Written for boys and girls between the ages of six and twelve, The Happy Hollisters are wholesome books, with an accent on humor and good, clean fun. Integrity always pays off and right wins over wrong. Parents, grandparents, and teachers love these books for their healthy celebration of life in simpler times. Kids are thrilled with the fast-paced action and will not want to put them down. The action-packed illustrations make the story – and the Hollister family – so vivid that the reader has a feeling of really sharing in on the adventures of this lovable and interesting family.<br />

<center><h2>The Very First Sherlock Holmes Story Ever Told</h2></center><br />Sir Arthur Conan Doyle introduced Sherlock Holmes in 1887 with A Study In Scarlet, and later went on to write another 3 Sherlock Holmes novels and 56 short stories. <br /><br /><center><h2>Watson Meets Holmes</h2></center><br />All of the Sherlock Holmes books and almost all of the short stories are told from the perspective of Dr. Watson. <i>A Study in Scarlet</i> begins with Watson returning injured from the British war in Afghanistan and looking for an affordable place to live. His friend Stamford tells him that someone he met in the chemistry lab is looking for someone to share rooms with, but gives him the warning, “You mustn’t blame me if you don’t get along with him...This was your idea, so you must not hold me responsible.” Disturbed by this statement, Watson asks Stamford what's bothering him. “It is not easy to express the inexpressible,” he replies. “Holmes is a little too scientific for my tastes. I could imagine him giving a friend a little pinch of something he made in the lab just to see how it would effect him. To do him justice, I think that he would take it himself with the same readiness.”<br /><br />Watson is taken aback by his first interaction with the enigmatic Holmes, but chooses to live with him anyway. Injured and virtually friendless, Watson initially spends most of his time confined to their rooms, and sets about trying to unlock the mystery of Sherlock Holmes, trying to figure out to what purpose his flatmate has acquired such a unique array of skills.<br /><br /><center><h2>The Murder That Baffles Scotland Yard</h2></center><br />Sherlock Holmes is in the middle of one of his periodic depressions when an emergency call comes in from Scotland Yard: There has been a murder and they need his help. In his depressed state, Holmes has no desire to go, but ultimately agrees at Watson’s bidding. When he arrives, he finds an American man dead on the floor of an abandoned house. The man has not been robbed and has no apparent injuries. The main clues? A wedding ring lies on top of the body and written in blood upon the wall is the word RACHE, the German word for revenge.<br /><br /><br /><center><h2>This Is Not The Original Text</h2></center><br />This is a Remastered version that strives to make the classic story more accessible to readers who might never have otherwise read the classic. In other words, it's not meant to be a replacement of the classic, but rather a bridge, exposing a new class of readers to the brilliance of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and Sherlock Holmes. While the vast majority of the text is original, hundreds of modifications have been made to make the story an easier, smoother reading experience for modern readers. The changes include:<ul><br /><li>Replacing or defining outdated vocabulary or concepts<br /><li>Decreasing long narrative descriptions<br /><li>Increasing live action<br /></ul><br /><br /><br />We hope these changes will allow a new generation to enjoy the brilliance of Sherlock Holmes.<br /><center><h2>Take the Sherlock Holmes Remastered Challenge</h2></center><br />Not sure if the original or the Remastered version is right for you? Then try them both. Download a free sample chapter of both versions and then decide.

There is a little known legend that but a handful of people know of - in the village of Shurooville!<br /><br />When three students set out into the woods to make a short film, they immediately find themselves lost. Soon they come face-to-face with strange and baffling encounters that send them on an epic adventure ... where there's more at stake than they could ever imagine!<br /><br />The Madness Tree is the second book in the Roots of the Naynab series that follows the mysterious myths, strange stories, terrifying tales and odd occurrences that revolve around the little known Naynab trees. <br /><br />The Roots of the Naynab is a book series surrounding the strange mysteries of the Naynab trees and the secrets they hold.<br /><br />An Interview with the Author<br /><br />Q:So what are the Naynab?<br />A: The Naynab are a peculiar type of fictional evergreen tree that grow large and wide. They have strong roots that branch out into a dense canopy. As a species of flora they have been around for millennia, even before human beings came around. It’s also believed that once upon a time they flourished all over the planet, but then started to disappear – why?? Well, no one knows. Today the Naynab are still found across the continents, however there are fewer Naynab today than there were thousands of years ago. <br /><br />Q:OK, what’s so special about the Naynab?<br />A: While most of the Naynab are like regular trees, centuries ago a few people began to realize that certain Naynab possessed strange and peculiar properties. Species of Naynab were either found to be in the present in strangest of places, or are in some form associated with grotesque and mysterious phenomena. The Roots of the Naynab series is essentially a fantasy series (with dashes of folk lore, action and bone chilling horror), that explore some of these mysteries.<br /><br />Q: Are the Naynab a real species of tree?<br />A: The Naynab and the Roots of the Naynab stories, as well as characters, are in every way fictional. <br /><br />Q: So, what is the underlying theme to the Roots of the Naynab series?<br />A: The underlying theme in the Naynab series - is obviously trees, but even more than that, it is about our relationship with nature, our home that we call ‘Earth’ and the need to conserve our natural environment. As human beings, there is much for us to learn. While the Naynab and the stories are fictional, the key themes the books talk about revolve around conservation and being more sensitive to the natural world that surrounds us. <br /><br />Q: Who are these books ideally for?<br />A: These stories are ideally for children; from 8 year olds starting to read chapter books to young readers who like scary tales with thrills and chills. <br /><br />Q:How should the books be read?<br />A: While each title so far can be read as a standalone book, the story-line in the Naynab series is staggered. The odd numbered books in the series follow one plot line while the even numbered books follow another.<br /><br />Q:How many books are there in the series?<br />A:There are 2 books in the series currently released, with more titles soon to come.<br /><br />Q: What can we expect from upcoming books in the series?<br />A: The series is going to get a lot more exciting with plot lines and characters that will evolve, as well as plenty of new twists and surprises in store for readers, so definitely look out for these upcoming releases and content.<br /><br />
