A. Enjoy this new Monkey business!
Chimps Ahoy! The Year of the Monkey has arrived!

This is the 11th adventure in our annual series Tales from the Chinese Zodiac.

As legend goes, the Monkey King (aka Sun Wukong) is a classic trickster. He had magical abilities and performed fantastic feats in the water, land, and sky.

Now why wouldn't we expect any less from his son Max?

Well, Max embarks on his own journey, both to learn a new sport and to discover his own unique character!

Illustrated by DreamWorks animator Kenji Ono, Max is ready to take you on an exciting ride!

B. Happy Holidays!
Just in time for your gift-giving, here is our December sale: purchase a book on www.immedium.com this month, and we'll add a free book of equal value. Get a surprise story from our catalog of fantastic adventures.

This BOGO (buy 1, get 1 free) is good for as many titles that you buy

C. Shopping in San Francisco
If you're in the area, join us at the annual Kimochi Silver Bells event in San Francisco on Saturday, 12/12, at St. Mary's Cathedral (corner of Gough and Van Ness).
