Mister Dash and the Cupcake Calamity
Written by Monica Kulling
Illustrated by Esperança Melo
Format: Hardcover | 32 Pages | Ages 3-6
Mr. Dash may not have a pedigree (he can count five different breeds of dogs as family), but from his furry head to his wagging tail, he is a gentleman. His fine manners make him a perfect companion to Madame Croissant. Their life together is graceful and civilized, what with walks in the park, stamp-collecting, and a passion for flowers. Mr. Dash is also in charge of delivering Madame Croissant’s world-famous cupcakes. All is well until Daphne, Madame Croissant’s rather lively niece, arrives to turn the cupcake world upside down.
Beyond the Moongate
True Stories of 1920s China
Written by Elizabeth Quan
Hardcover | 40 Pages | Ages 6-8
“Anecdotal paintings and reminiscences of two childhood years spent in China, by an artist now in her 90s … Quan recalls 17 experiences or incidents during the stay…. It’s a sunny picture, but there are references to the real dangers of pirates and brigands, as well as a comment about the author’s beloved Popo (grandmother) walking to church on bound feet. These, along with a final parting made particularly poignant … warm, humorous and engaging overall.” — Kirkus Reviews
The Dragon Turn
The Boy Sherlock Holmes , His 5th Case
Written by Shane Peacock
Trade Paperback | 256 Pages | Ages 10-14
“…The Dragon Turn is a wonderful book. I think its target audience will love it for its adventure, mystery and characters, and, as an older reader, I enjoyed it for the way Peacock wrote Sherlock Holmes.” — Literary Treats
