This series is getting great reviews. I think I’ll start on this one next.

From Kirkus Reviews, “The fast-moving plot is filled with clever details and magical intrigue. … [Forsyth] develops her characters with aplomb…creating an adventure that is more than just an exciting story. … Well-crafted heroic fantasy for readers just stepping into the genre.”

This series written for ages 9-13 has four main characters, two boys and two girls, making it perfect for both. Readers who love fantasy and everything magical will be hooked. Do yourself a favor and get all five. For more on this series, click here.

“This is the easiest fundraiser I’ve ever done! One of my girls said she asked a few neighbors if they’d like to order the cards and they were very happy to – they liked that it was 30 cards for $30 and that the cards were so nice. The little girl said ‘all you have to do is ask and they buy them!’ “11988360_10153287138234983_272295816896363365_n

Historical fiction and horse fans all rolled into one

Set in historic Roman times this is a fantastic pick for ages 10 and up.  With courage and determination, the blacksmith’s 0004729_300daughter successfully raises a sickly abandoned foal that later becomes the pride of the Roman cavalry.  With lots of action and suspense, this series is sure to become a favorite.  My teen daughter and I both loved it!  Start with Minna’s Quest, then No Turning Back and finally Far from Home.  Or get the whole series for $3 less.

High adventure for boys (and girls!)

Here’s one of our most popular adventure series with a male main character for boys with a penchant for exciting edge-of-your-seat cliff-hangers.  My teen daughter and I loved this as well so no holds barred as to gender of the reader. 0001083_300

New review of our mystery series, Chloe and Levesque

“So, if you are looking for a fun mystery series that involves teens and a little bit of murder, but with nothing too graphic, then pick up a copy of one of the Chloe & Levesque Mystery books today. You won’t be sorry.” Reading Review

Is there ever a better time for this new title?

Do Nice, Be Kind, Spread Happy.  What could be more fitting to teach our children?  This book starts with a note to the reader;

“Congratulations!
Now that you have this incredible book, you automatically qualify for membership in the worldwide “kindness club” – a secret society of undercover agents with a common purpose: 0006941_do_nice_be_kind_spread_happy_300to spread happiness, smiles, magic, and a bit of mischief throughout our world. By committing acts of ninja niceness.
And do you know the most powerful thing about your acts of kindness? Kind acts make people happy, and happy people are nice to others, so the movement grows and grows.”

What follows are pages and pages of activities, a total of eighty different activities, that kids can do to spread happiness and kindness in their piece of the world.  Doesn’t everyone want to make a difference?  Start a Kindness Club at school or make acts of kindness the focus for just your own family.  For more about this title click here.
