Testimonials


"I looked through your catalog and you have some really beautiful books!"
- Andrea Leonardi, Reading is Fundamental, Southern California, CA

"Timmy and Tammy was a perfect fit for us! It is about a sibling set that love to read about trains and play with trains. One day their mother and father decide that it is time for them to ride a real train and so off they go on their own train ride adventure. The illustrations by Health McPherson make me think of I Dream of Jeannie. They are fun, whimsical, cartoonish, 1950's-ish and did I say fun? (Oh, I see that I did!) Great book and we've reread it multiple times."
