Little Woods Runner is a delightful, true story of a little girl from the city who discovers her love of nature on her weekly visits to her grandparents' home in the country. Author Colleen Barksdale is a retired teacher and grandmother who lives on wooded acreage in northern Minnesota. Nestled on the wooded property is a tailor-made trail she cleared, with unique markers for each of her four grandchildren. On Colleen's 25 year teaching journey, some of the most rewarding experiences have been the thoughtful and heartfelt cards, drawings, hugs and inspiration from both parents and students. It is Colleen's hope that children who have never experienced the beauty of nature will be inspired by her granddaughter, Dajahnae in the story, Little Woods Runner. Illustrator Andra Guzzo is a practicing artist and teacher in South Dakota. She grew up in the suburbs of Memphis before moving to study fine art at Austana University. Since graduating with a BA in art and education, she teaches middle and high school art classes in Canton. Andra has shown work in galleries and shows around Sioux Falls, South Dakota. In collaboration with Colleen Barksdale, Little Woods Runner is her first book illustration."

Victor Milán's epic fantasy weird world of The Dinosaur Lords is a place that mirrors 14th century Europe with its dynastic rivalries, religious wars, and byzantine politics--except for their weapons of choice... Paradise: a planet where humans are playthings of the gods. All they have is a thirst for freedom and fables of old gods who sit in judgment. Theirs is a dangerous world, for it is a paleontologist’s dream. And so we have a world filled with knights. Knights riding dinosaurs... The Dinosaur Lords Trilogy discounted ebundle includes: Dinosaur Lords, Dinosaur Knights, and Dinosaur Princess "It's like a cross between Jurassic Park and Game of Thrones." --George R. R. Martin At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

Brian sets out on the hunt of a lifetime in this follow-up to the award-winning classic Hatchet from three-time Newbery Honor-winning author Gary Paulsen! Brian Robeson has stood up to the challenge of surviving the wilderness in Hatchet, The River, Brian's Winter, and Brian's Return. Now, while camping alone on a lake in the woods, he finds a wounded and whimpering dog. As Brian treats her wounds, he worries about who or what did this to her. His instincts tell him to head north, quickly, to check on his Cree friends. With his new companion at his side, he sets out on the hunt. Gary Paulsen expertly delivers a riveting story that brilliantly combines two of his great themes: the human animal's place in nature, and the mysterious and wonderful bond between humans and dogs. “The Brian books reveal nature and humankind’s place in it with spare prose that seems ideally suited to the setting and plot.” —VOYA “Based on real incidents, this well-written sequel to Hatchet and its successors will be gobbled up by the author’s legions of fans.” —Kirkus Reviews Read all the Hatchet Adventures!
