AN ILLUSTRATED EDITION OF THE FANTASY CLASSIC WITH SIX NEW PAGES OF ILLUSTRATIONS!
 
First published in the United States more than seventy-five years ago, J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit is one of the best-loved books of all time. Now a blockbuster film by Peter Jackson, Academy Award–winning director of the Lord of the Rings trilogy, The Hobbit was also adapted into a fully painted graphic novel, a classic in its own right, presented here in a new expanded edition.
 
When Thorin Oakenshield and his band of dwarves embark upon a dangerous quest to reclaim stolen treasure from the evil dragon Smaug, Gandalf the wizard suggests an unlikely accomplice: Bilbo Baggins, a quiet and contented hobbit. Along the way, the company faces trolls, goblins, giant spiders, and worse. But in the end it is Bilbo alone who must face the most dreaded dragon in all Middle-earth—and a destiny that waits in the dark caverns beneath the Misty Mountains, where a twisted creature known as Gollum jealously guards a precious magic ring.

A very funny post-apocalyptic graphic novel, now a New York Times bestseller!

“Terrifyingly fun! Delivers big thrills and even bigger laughs.”–Jeff Kinney, author of the #1 New York Times bestseller Diary of a Wimpy Kid
 
The zombies are disappearing. This might seem like a good thing, since zombies eat your brains, but normal human kid Jack Sullivan is suspicious. He keeps hearing an eerie shrieking noise that seems to be almost summoning the zombies—but to where, and for what (probably) foul purpose?
 
Jack, his three best friends (maybe the only people left on Earth), and their pet monster Rover need to get to the bottom of this. Along the way they encounter a lot more than they bargained for, including a giant Wormungulous, a pizza parlor monster hangout, an ancient evil who destroys worlds, and a stereo system that is totally the bomb. Can Jack figure out why the zombies are vanishing . . . before he and his friends are next?

From the Hardcover edition.

Araminta Ross was born a slave in Delaware in the early 19th century. Slavery meant that her family could be ripped apart at any time, and that she could be put to work in dangerous places and for abusive people. But north of the Mason-Dixon line, slavery was illegal. If she could run away and make it north without being caught or killed, she’d be free. Facing enormous danger, Araminta made it, and once free, she changed her name to Harriet Tubman. Tubman spent the rest of her life helping slaves run away like she did, every time taking her life in her hands. Nathan Hale tells her incredible true-life story with the humor and sensitivity he’s shown in every one of the Hazardous Tales—perfect for reluctant readers and classroom discussions.

Read Review
Brendan and Erc are just your average interplanetary mailmen trying to find their way in the galaxy. But one day, while piloting cargo through the far reaches of space, they suddenly find themselves on a journey they didn’t expect: a journey to the truth. The Truth Is Out There combines the visual excitement and quirky humor of graphic novels with solid popular philosophy and theology. The result is a book in which everyone from teens to adults can find accessible answers to questions about God, the soul, true happiness, and much more and have fun doing it! And because Brendan and Erc start their journey at the very beginning, readers don’t have to possess any kind of faith to appreciate the thoughtful ideas and arguments they’ll encounter. If you just have an open mind (and a sense of adventure) you will come away from these pages with a clearer sense of life’s purpose, and a better understanding of the reasons for believing in God, Jesus, and the Church. And if you’re already a believer, The Truth Is Out There will deepen your knowledge of the Faith and sharpen your skills at defending it.

Princess Harriet is nobody’s hamster damsel in distress! Book two of this series for Babymouse and Princess in Black fans is filled with even more action and twisted fairy tale fun

Princess Harriet has absolutely no interest in brushing her hair, singing duets with woodland animals, or any other typical princess activities. So when a fairy tells a very bored Harriet about twelve mice princesses who are cursed to dance all night long, she happily accepts the quest and sets off with a poncho of invisibility and her trusty battle quail. But when she arrives at the Mouse Kingdom, she discovers there’s more to the curse than meets the eye, and trying to help is dangerous business . . . even for a tough princess like Harriet.

From the creator of Dragonbreath, comes a laugh-out-loud funny new comic-hybrid series, bursting with girl power and furry fairy tale retellings.

Banishment from his life’s calling can’t keep a comically overconfident detective down in the latest episode by New York Times bestseller Stephan Pastis.

This book was never meant to exist. No one needs to know the details. Just know this: there’s a Merry, a Larry, a missing tooth, and a teachers’ strike that is crippling Timmy Failure’s academic future. Worst of all, Timmy is banned from detective work. It’s a conspiracy of buffoons. He recorded everything in his private notebook, but then the manuscript was stolen. If this book gets out, he will be grounded for life. Or maybe longer. And will Timmy’s mom really marry Doorman Dave?

Rabbi Harvey is Back with Ten Hilarious New Adventures

In this follow-up to the popular The Adventures of Rabbi Harvey: A Graphic Novel of Jewish Wisdom and Wit in the Wild West, the Rabbi returns to the streets of Elk Spring, Colorado. Part Wild West sheriff, part old world rabbi, Harvey protects his town and delivers justice, wielding only the weapons of wisdom, wit, and a bit of trickery. These adventures combine Jewish and American folklore by creatively retelling comic Jewish folktales and setting them loose on the western frontier of the 1870s.

As his fame grows throughout the Rocky Mountains, Rabbi Harvey meets new characters?including the luckless gold miner Abigail?and faces a slew of new challenges. He encounters the return of “Big Milt” and Wolfie Wasserman (the most feared father-and-son outlaw team east of Nevada), and investigates another bold crime by the sweet-faced Bad Bubbe. And, as ever, the Rabbi is the quickest draw in the West?when it comes to pulling out bits of Talmudic insight to fit any occasion, that is. Like any great collection of Jewish folktales, these stories contain layers of humor and timeless wisdom that will entertain, teach and, especially, make you laugh.

Free downloadable Audio book Included with purchase.

Kids Living Large! A mysterious teacher, adventures, bullies, a big mean dog and super heroes all wrapped together! — Do you have BIG dreams? Every kid (adults too) dreams of living out big dreams and having great adventures, but can you still “live large” after an injury or when born with a disability? This book is about living out Better Dreams – Even When it seems that you have limitations and the walls and barriers around you appear insurmountable.

You’ll find that the possibilities are endless when you have a “Miss Quince” by your side! Disabled superheroes? Children’s adventures from a wheelchair or using a cane? Impossible, right? Well, not when you meet Miss Quince. You see, in the beautiful bay-side town of Windswept, comes this teaching-dynamo named Miss Quince who brings with her an amazing and delightful ability – she completely transforms the lives of her disabled students. The band of bullies had best beware, for there’s a “new sheriff” in town and she’s bringing with her the most unlikely group of super-heroes this world has ever imagined.

Book Themes Include: Courage under pressure, overcoming bullying, perseverance, true friendships, excellent teacher model, living large in spite of a disability, and genuine super heroes!

Special needs student’s bring very different gifts and abilities “to the table”. They appear to be “disabled” with autism, or downs syndrome, blindness, cerebral palsy or spinal injuries or the like, but are they? You see, the students in Windswept are about to receive a whole new understanding of just how really GREAT, being different can be.

In this episode, you’ll follow Marcus and his new Can-Do Crew friends as Marcus starts a whole new way of living after a life-changing injury. Soon enough, he’ll find that being disabled is simply a bit of an inconvenience and NOT the handicap that most think it is – in fact, he’s never had so much fun before. It begins when he enters the classroom behind the yellow door and finds among this unlikely group of students, a CAN-Do spirit, and with it some very cool and unique skills.

Children from 9-12, but frankly kids and adults of all ages dream of being something special, a hero who can “slay giants”. This soon to be a best seller will warm your heart, bring a tear to your eyes and most of all give you, your kids and anyone battling a disability – brand new hope. Yes, it really is possible to maximize whatever talent God has given you, and Miss Quince will pave the way for that to happen. This book brings a “magical” touch to kindle children’s books, but more than magical, it’s filled with courage and possibilities.

The authors bring their own unique understanding to this book. In that, Mark is disabled from a spinal injury, Katie works with disabled kids as a speech-language pathologist and together they have one son who is autistic. As such, they add heart and authenticity to their writing.

Who’s this book for?

* “Kids” of all ages, able and disabled.
* Disabled children.
* Parents of special needs kids.
* Special education teachers.
* Parents/teachers who want to teach their “normal” kids that kids with disabilities are pretty “normal” too.
* Dreamers and adventurers who want to dream big and live large.

So hold on to your seats, this “train” is about to leave the station…Miss Quince is in town and she’s gonna shake things up.
