A Unicorn Named Sparkle
Young, Amy

Sale! Was $16.99, now only $6.98!

When Lucy sees an ad in the newspaper for a unicorn, she sends in her twenty-five cents and waits four to six long weeks for her very own unicorn to arrive. She imagines the flowers that she'll braid into his beautiful pink mane, and she even picks the perfect name for him: Sparkle. But when Sparkle arrives, his ears are too long, his horn is too short, he smells funny--and oh, he has fleas. Lucy isn't pleased, but in the end she warms up to Sparkle and realizes that even though he wasn't exactly the unicorn she wanted, he might be just the one she needs.

Beatrix Potter's Americans: Selected Letters
Jane Crowell Morse

Sale! Was $35.00, now $12.98!

"Most welcome!" Beatrix Potter Heelis wrote to an American children's book editor in 1930. "I always tell nice Americans to send other nice Americans along. Perhaps 'understanding Americans' would be a better adjective than 'nice.' You come because you understand the books...not from any impertinent curiosity."

After her marriage to William Heelis in 1913, Beatrix Potter lived in the Lake District where she devoted herself to raising sheep and helping to conserve land for the National Trust. She welcomed visits from Americans and kept the friendships alive with warm personal letters, even in the difficult years of World War II. The letters covered a wide range of subjects: art, children's books, country life, conservation, place names and language, sheep, old furniture, human behavior, and international politics. This is her own record of her 'purposeful life of achievement' between 1921 and 1943.

Includes twenty full-color illustrations, one pencil drawing, and one pen-and-ink sketch by Beatrix Potter; Index; Appendix: 'Roots' of the Peter Rabbit Tales.

Let My People Go
McKissack, Fredrick L

Sale! Was $27.99, now $12.98!

""Come, join me as I take you back to Charleston, South Carolina, to my father's forge in the early 1800s. Sit with me on the woodpile as he tells a tale faith, hope, or love.""
In this extraordinary collection, Charlotte Jefferies and her father Price, a former slave, introduce us to twelve best loved Bible tales, from Genesis to Daniel, and reveal their significance in the lives of African Americans -- and indeed of all oppressed peoples.
When Charlotte wants to understand the cruel injustices of her time, she turns to her father. "Does the powerful slaveholder, Mr. Sam Riley, who seems to own all that surrounds them, also own the sun and moon?" she wonders. Price's answer is to tell the story of Creation. "How can God allow an evil like slavery to exist?" she asks. Price responds by telling the story of the Hebrews' Exodus -- and shows Charlotte that someday their people, too, will be free.
With exquisite clarity, Patricia and Fredrick McKissack and James Ransome -- a Newbery Honor winner and all Coretta Scott King Award winners -- brilliantly illuminate the parallels between the stories of the Jews and African-American history. "Let My People Go" is a triumphant celebration of both the human spirit and the enduring power of story as a source of strength.
