B. Hannah the Horse is here
The Year of the Horse has arrived at our stables, and Hannah has started to launch out the gate!

Illustrated by Nickelodeon animator Jennifer Wood, the 9th adventure in the Tales from the Chinese Zodiac is full of verve - packing wit to entertain any adult and charm to please any fan of My Little Pony.

Author Oliver Chin autographs this Saturday in San Francisco at the bustling Kimochi Fair at St. Mary's Cathedral.

Then in January, both creators will start presenting at dozens of spring events throughout California.

C. The Scariest Thing sells out!
Author Dave Derrick newest story I'm the Scariest Thing in the Jungle! is nearly sold out. So we're going back to press for its 2nd printing.

ForeWord magazine praised this adventure:
"In the style of an animated children's movie, this endearing book captures the voices of two young jungle tots...David Derrick imbues his characters with the spunky personality reminiscent of Simba and other classic movie friends, bringing them to life with colorful, cartoonish drawings and boastful dialogue. This tale of independence and humility will be adored by children..."

GeekMom chose it and Dave's previous book Animals Don't, So I Won't! for its 2013 Holiday Gift Guide.


The Octonauts and the Great Ghost Reef
By Meomi

"I like this book because it's really cool. I like the words and the way it's drawn so so so so so so so so so so so so much."

Julie Black Belt: The Belt of Fire
By Oliver Chin, illustrated by Charlene Chua

"On her quest for her next belt, Julie learns that it's more important to look inside at your own progress than to compare yourself to someone else. She also learns the value of co-operation. The illustrations are colourful and fun, and even when the characters are just standing still, there is a feeling of action."
