Do You Believe in Magic?
Jala does. So when a mirror appears in Jala’s room and transports her to the world of wolves — the fact that she’s become a wolf herself is only the beginning! Can she help her pack survive? And will she ever get back to her human family again?

Readers of classic fantasy like The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe and Alice in Wonderland will adore this chapter book for young readers. Buy this delightful adventure today.
 
What Readers Are Saying:
 
“A lovely and whimsical read for any little girl or grown woman like myself.”
“Dumas taps into a fantasy that I believe many children probably have (sometimes pretending that they’re an animal, or in Jala’s case, becoming that animal) and what they can learn from that fantasy. Jala learns more about herself, her family, and her world through her adventure as a wolf and that translates to an added layer of discussion that you could have with your child while reading this book. This would make a lovely addition to any child’s ebook library.”
“Jala and the Wolves…reads like a Hindu fairytale with its quaint nature-filled charm and elegant magic. It reminds me of the books I read as a child – The Secret Garden and the like – and that makes it something I want to share with my daughter.”

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.
