 Aesop's 1st Book of Childhood Adventures: Aesop's fables and other short stories

Three of Aesop's fables are told from the perspective of a child observing the world and learning from it. In this truly unique series, Aesop is that child. He is a curious, confident young raccoon who goes on a daily adventure and experiences each fable as it unfolds. Aesop’s grandmother encourages him to go on these adventures so that he may find the answer to his many questions. Upon his return, Aesop shares what he has learned with his grandmother, who validates his conclusions. One of the most powerful forms of learning occurs through real-life experience and self-motivation. Learning begins with curiosity and succeeds only with perseverance. Unfortunately, as children grow, their curiosity and freedom of expression wane. This book endeavors to strengthen a child’s unbounded curiosity so they feel empowered and never stop asking ‘why.’

When the clues lead the group to the shore of a nearby lake, Marco is shocked that the only way to move forward is to ride a zip line across the water. If Marco can’t find his courage with the help of his friends, his fears will keep him grounded. His chances of seeing Cresselia’s Lunar Dance are shot. Just as Pokemon can evolve through training, can Marco get stronger through new experiences?

Longtime fans of Pokemon, or new fans of the hit app Pokemon Go, will love reading about Marco and his friends at Camp Pikachu.

Monsterville: A Lissa Black Production

Monsterville:  A Lissa Black Production is a fusion of The Boxtrolls, Jumanji, and Candyland, weaving together friendship, family, and monsters into a funny fantasy horror brimming with heart. 

Thirteen-year-old Lissa Black is miserable when her parents force her to move from New York City (the perfect home for an aspiring writer/director/actress) to Freeburg, Pennsylvania, nowhere capital of the world. There’s nothing to do except play her little sister Haylie’s favorite new game, Monsterville, and hang out with her new neighbor, Adam.  When a walk in the woods lands her face-to-face with a swamp monster hungry for brains and then a Sasquatch that moos, even Lissa can’t call her new home boring. With Adam’s help, she catches the culprit behind the drama: a shape-shifting goblin who’s fled from the monster world of Down Below.

What do you do with a creature that can be literally anything? Make monster movies, of course! Lissa is convinced that Blue will be the secret to her big break.  When Haylie goes missing on Halloween, Lissa, Adam, and the monster must venture Down Below to stage a rescue—and face the real Monsterville, which is anything but a game.
