Frog and Toad have been the lovable characters by Arnold Label for 50 years! That's an impressive friendship, now compiled in a sweet collection of amazing stories for generations to come.
Poems for those who want to believe in the impossible, ranging from sections of Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night’s Dream to Edmund Spenser's The Faire Queen, and everything in between. A beautiful collection of works to make you feel like wandering through the forest, finding a moss covered rock by the stream, and read about the joys of life.
“This isn’t the kind of fairy tale where the princess marries a prince. It’s the one where she kills him”
Nettle & Bone by T. Kingfisher is easily my favorite fantasy novel of all time, with dark spins on the type of fairy tales we know. One of my favorite aspects is the main character, who is not a child of 17 but rather a woman of 30, uninterested in romance or anything you might find in “normal” fantasy. I loved the realness of her struggles and the making of her independence to create a wholeheartedly fantastic novel.
Shirley Jackson is one of my all time favorite authors, perfectly curating the right amount of unease into the daily, seemingly normal lives of her characters. Nothing and nowhere is as safe as it seems…”There’s something sinister in suburbia”.
“Trees & people used to be good friends…”
This adorably illustrated children's book compares humans to the likeness of trees in strength and ways of living. Gianferrari calls on readers to see how trees can inspire us to grow and be better people. Be a tree!
Everyday rituals inspired by the cycles of nature to inspire healing, growth, and personal connection. I love reading about how others use earth centered traditions to open their hearts, minds, and bodies, especially with these gorgeous illustrations!
After a recent trip to the United Kingdom, I have become increasingly interested in all of the stories that make up history! This collection features classics like Jack and the Beanstalk, Snow-White, and many other short stories to open the imagination.
Author of The Hazel Wood, Melissa Albert depicts a unique collection of creepy short stories based in a land of her design. More horror based than any young adult book I have read to date!
