But there’s one thing that Eli simply can’t fix—his bad dreams. It’s the same one over and over again: a mountain of junk, a prize just beyond his reach, and a fall.

One night as Eli stays up late to work on his most recent invention and escape another nightmare, a mysterious, luminous, and somewhat bumbling man by the name of Mr. Moon appears at his window. He knows just what the matter with Eli is and promises to help him, if he can fix one more thing…

And so Eli Trebuckle makes the journey to the broken Moonpowder factory. If he can get it up and running, he can ensure that the whole world will have sweet dreams! But can Eli face his greatest fears and meet the biggest challenge of his lifetime? With inspiring courage, determination, and a little faith, Eli proves that, happily, the answer is yes.

What to give the person who has everything? This is the dilemma of Frederick Knick-Knack who surely must have, somewhere in his bags and boxes, his chests and cases, his collection of collections, the ideal gift for his dear friend Alice. As he draws forth this trinket, that trifle, a world of wonder unfolds. What will he choose? A robe spun from the shooting stars with a veil of the Milky Way? A marble made by Merlin the Enchanter? Perhaps the ticket for a thousand and one flights on a thousand and one nights? Somehow, somewhere amid these myriad gifts is a gift like no other, the perfect present. Sparkling with warmth and humor, The Merchant of Marvels and the Peddler of Dreams is an exuberant marriage of word and illustration, its pages rich with finely crafted objets d’art, line drawings, and breathtaking watercolors. Imbued with magic, mystery, and enchantment, this exquisite volume is the perfect present in itself — a wonderful story and a joyful celebration of love and friendship to be read and treasured.

Lillian is an orphan who lives with her aunt on a homestead miles from anyone, surrounded by uncharted forest. She wanders the woods, chasing squirrels and rabbits and climbing trees. Free-spirited and independent Lillian is a kindred spirit to the many wild cats who gather around the ancient beech tree. One day, while she is under the beech, Lillian is bitten by a poisonous snake. The cats refuse to let her die, and use their magic to turn her into one of their own. How she becomes a girl again is a lyrical, original folktale.

Set in the countryside north of de Lint’s fictional Newford, with some of the same characters as the duo’s recent, acclaimed Seven Wild Sisters, A Circle of Cats is the long-awaited first picture book by long-time friends Charles de Lint and Charles Vess, whose masterful art is as magical as the story.

Illustrations by Charles Vess.

Come one, come all! And as you listen having a ball, I will tell you a story about Jay and Kay, a wannabe prince and pretending princess escaping the first day of May. No, the twins were not leaving because they were naughty children at play, but rather so they could trail the fairy tale and hear what the laughing breezes, singing fleas, dancing trees, and trapeze-swinging bees would say. In this book we will chase crazy things on make-believe wings, learning running away is never right anytime night or day. We will also discover to stay safe underneath your glowing crown on loan…never roam away from home. But before the kids could figure that out, they first have to go exploring out and about, making itchy mistakes north to south. Yes, investigating where icky cruds are growing huge inside deep, dark, damp, black caves, Jay and Kay will run away where wild winds are howling and blowing. So come into the teacups land and to the trash cans’ last dumpy stand, and you will go on an enchanted shadowed adventure where wary fairies, spying giants, and magical bugs are peeking, seeking, wandering, and prowling.

Two young monsters learn the joys of a good scare

Once the festivities are in full swing, and the various creatures are treating one another to some good scary moments, an alarm is called: “Here come the scariest creatures of all!” And in a clever wordless sequence, the monsters scatter to hide from . . . the approaching group of terrifying human children!
