The Changeover
The Changeover
'A clammy hand pressed Laura down to her knees beside Jacko's bed. It was the hand of terror, nothing less.' It was a warning. Laura felt it when she looked in the mirror that morning. There had been others: the day her father left home, the day she met Sorensen - the boy with the strange silver eyes. But nothing had prepared Laura for the horror of today. And now her little brother, Jacko, was fighting for his life after being sucked dry of his youth by the sinister Carmody Braque. Laura knows there is only one way to save Jacko; she must join Sorensen and use his supernatural powers to change over if there is to be any hope for her little brother. 'It is rare to find a novel which captures so well the changeover from child to adult, and from what is real in the mind to what is real outside.' The Times Literary Supplement 'The best supernatural young adult fiction around. With Stephen King power and Mahy's own class and polish.' Kirkus Review

Twinkle, Twinkle, ABC: A Mixed-up, Mashed-up Melody
Twinkle, Twinkle, ABC: A Mixed-up, Mashed-up Melody
A musical mash-up for the toddler set that will bring them to their feet! ... until it's time to sleep.Veteran children's book author and singer/ songwriter Barney Saltzberg has created a classic sing-aloud book with enduring appeal! Though "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star" and "The Alphabet Song" follow the same exact tune, never before has a children's book mashed up these two quintessential songs of childhood. The lyrics are seamlessly woven together and enriched with cameos by high-flying birds, a twirling cow, a growling bear, a banjo, and a tree swaying in the wind. Benaglia's whimsical art brings a Seussian feel and a visual narrative that leads the reader right... into... bed.
