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.

Giant Squid
Candace Fleming

Sale! Was $18.99, now only $8.98!

The giant squid is one of the most elusive creatures in the world. As large as whales, they hide beyond reach deep within the sea, forcing scientists to piece together their story from those clues they leave behind.

An injured whale's ring-shaped scars indicate an encounter with a giant squid. A piece of beak broken off in the whale's belly; a flash of ink dispersed as a blinding defense to allow the squid to escape-- these fragments of proof were all we had . . . until a giant squid was finally filmed in its natural habitat only two years ago.

In this beautiful and clever nonfiction picture book about the giant squid, Candace Fleming and Eric Rohmann explore, both visually and poetically, this hidden creature's mysterious life.

Hamster Princess #1: Harriet the Invincible
Ursula Vernon

Sale! Was $12.99, now only $6.98!

Harriet Hamsterbone is not your typical princess. She may be quite stunning in the rodent realm (you'll have to trust her on this one), but she is not so great at trailing around the palace looking ethereal or sighing a lot. She finds the royal life rather . . . dull. One day, though, Harriet's parents tell her of the curse that a rat placed on her at birth, dooming her to prick her finger on a hamster wheel when she's twelve and fall into a deep sleep. For Harriet, this is most wonderful news: It means she's invincible until she's twelve! After all, no good curse goes to waste. And so begins a grand life of adventure with her trusty riding quail, Mumfrey...until her twelfth birthday arrives and the curse manifests in a most unexpected way.

Perfect for fans of Babymouse and Chris Colfer's Land of Stories, this laugh-out-loud new comic hybrid series will turn everything you thought you knew about princesses on its head.
