1. A Christmas Memory

by: Truman Capote
Release date: Oct 28, 2014
Number of Pages: 48

Read Review
Truman Capote’s boyhood Christmas memoir rereleased in a beautiful new package, which includes a CD with the audio version of the text.

     The classic story of Truman Capote’s childhood Christmas ritual is more endearing than ever in this newly redesigned package.

     In celebration of A Christmas Memory‘s enduring appeal, this repackaged edition retains Beth Peck’s evocative watercolors and an audio CD narration by the venerable Celeste Holm (originator of the Ado Annie role in the 1943 Broadway hit “Oklahoma!” and an Academy Award-winning actress). Originally published in 1956, this is the story from Capote’s childhood of lovingly making fruitcakes from scratch at Christmas-time with his elderly cousin, and has stood the test of time to become known as an American holiday classic. In its new size, it’s perfect for reading alone or reading aloud, or following along while listening to the audio version.

It’s not easy being Welcome Comfort-a foster child always moving from home to home and getting picked on by the kids at school. Even Christmas, the most wondrous time of the year, isn’t so wonderful for Welcome, who has no family, no presents, and no Santa Claus. “Santa! He’s not even real!” But when Mr. Hamp, the school custodian, becomes his closest friend, Welcome’s life changes forever. Now he has someone to visit and a family to be a part of. Yet Christmas is still a lonely time for Welcome since the Hamps go away every year and there’s still no sign of Santa. “Child, he’ll find you” says Mr. Hamp. “Maybe he hasn’t come because you haven’t believe hard enough.” Accompanied by art that radiates the brilliance of the season, Patricia Polacco’s heartwarming journey through the generations of a boy’s life proves that “believing is seeing” and ask if perhaps there isn’t a Santa Claus inside every one of us.

The Best Halloween Book EVER!
This book is GROSS. This book is CREEPY.
This book has totally cool MONSTERS. A BAD GUY who gets what’s coming to him, and texas hold em’ poker game with the highest stakes of all … a soul.  
Read it with ALL the lights ON! Or, better yet, with all the light OFF.   bwah hahahaha.
Rollo Crane absolutely, positively, does NOT try to be good.  He’s so mean, so rotten, that this Halloween night he tries to steal gold from a sleeping demon!  
“And so it was with Rollo Crane,
a man who enjoyed causing others pain.
Till one Halloween night,
been a few years past,
he stumbled across a demon
Who was sleeping in a shack.
Rollo rifled through his pockets
Searching for gold,
but the demon woke up,
Or so the story is told.
Looked Rollo in the eye,
grabbed him by the hand,
and said, “I hear tell, Mr. Crane,
You’re a bad, bad man.”
That demon’s name is I Like It Like That, and he has a brother named Some Like It Hot. What happens when they get a hold of Rollo Crane is an epic work of children’s literature that is woven from the fabric of classic American Folklore.
A top 100 all time favorite Halloween books for kids.  Soon to be a major motion picture.

Read Review
“Artie watched the trees. When they saw children misbehave, a fine mist flowed from their branches. When touched by this mist, children stopped bickering, babies stopped crying, and parents started smiling. “What’s that coming from your branches?” asked Artie. “That’s Christmas Spirit…” Artie is delighted when a family selects him to be their Christmas tree. But, because he’s not a real tree, he doubts he has enough Christmas Spirit to bring the children the hope, joy, love and peace they need. Who can help Artie believe in himself? No one knows more about Christmas Spirit than Santa. That jolly old elf soon sets Artie straight. Any tree?just like any person?has an infinite amount of Christmas Spirit to share, if it comes from the heart. Artie: The First Artificial Christmas Tree shows children how important it is to share Christmas Spirit. Artie’s struggle to feel worthy of the special work of the evergreens will encourage young readers facing their own obstacles and help them to understand the importance of developing their own special talents. Timeless watercolors capture the enduring magic of the Christmas season and will inspire readers to spread cheer through the holidays?and beyond. Artie’s story shows that with Christmas trees, just like with people, it’s what’s inside that matters!”

Read Review
The Blacksmith’s Gift, An Orphan’s Promise, and A Carpenter’s Legacy elegantly retell the Santa Claus stories – re-imagining them in a more realistic world, while preserving belief, joy and wonder for younger children. These books can be read independently as bedtime stories or as a series; all examine Santa, the Christmas holiday, and how we create hope, success and meaning.

An Orphan’s Promise shows a realistic Santa mentoring orphan boys in his toyshop. When Ruby comes to learn toymaking, she also learns, when you are alone at age ten, being with Santa does not resolve the absence of her parents. This is a tale of learning, of hope, and of miracles; showing broken promises can be mended, especially during Christmas.

Read Review
Santa climbed back into the sleigh and pulled the hat down lower over his ears. It was cold, but then it usually is on Christmas Eve. Grabbing the reins tightly in both hands, he gave the order.

“Go Dasher, fly Dancer, Prancer and Vixen, let’s go Comet, Cupid, up and away Donder and Blitzen.”

With that, the team began running along the rooftop, faster and faster until the sleigh, pulled by Rudolph and eight other reindeer, glided effortlessly and silently into the cold night sky.

Then disaster struck.

Prancer cried out in pain and the sleigh wobbled. Santa wrestled with the reins as they started to lose height. He managed to get it under control and landed safely on the street below. Santa jumped from his seat and ran over to Prancer, whose knee was badly swollen. Santa Claus grabbed some snow and rubbed it on the knee, his usually jolly face now looking a touch concerned. “I think that is the end of your Christmas Eve Prancer,” said Santa, rubbing the fur between his antlers.

“Oh dear,” said Rudolph. “What are we going to do?”

Santa thought for a moment, then a smile appeared back on his rosy red face.

“I have a plan.”

“When Golfo Saved Christmas” is a short illustrated children’s story that can be read to kids in one sitting, or over 2 -3 nights ending on Christmas Eve. The book leaves open a great opportunity for parents to add a little extra magic to Christmas morning and leave your kids wondering, what if? There is also a website set up for the book at http://whengolfosavedchristmas.com/ which can give parents ideas on how to make this book come to life for your own kids, and make Christmas morning very special, and one they will never forget.

Read Review
DIZZY, THE STOWAWAY ELF, has been Story Monster Approved!

Santa’s Izzy Elves stories are not your usual picture books: older kids who enjoy playing with words and rhythmical verse will love them, too! One reason for this is that although these stories echo the famous 19th century poem, A VISIT FROM ST. NICHOLAS, Santa’s Izzy Elves are definitely savvy in 21st century technology.

In the third of these tales, Dizzy has worked all year right next to his friend, Tizzy, and heard all about his Great Adventure (as recounted in TIZZY, THE CHRISTMAS SHELF ELF). The trouble is, Dizzy wants to have an adventure, too! When he sneaks aboard Santa’s sleigh, Dizzy finds all the adventure he’s dreamed of, with two little boys, Stuart and Drake. The three of them share a wild joy ride and plenty of fun.

Dorothea Jensen is an award-winning author of fiction for young readers. Her historical novel, THE RIDDLE OF PENNCROFT FARM, is read in schools all over the U.S. She has written rhyming stories about four of Santa’s Izzy Elves and has four more in the works.
