The Wolf Hour

The Wolf Hour  brings together a wolf, three pigs, a witch, and a headstrong girl in a story, and Stories, you've never seen before but will recognize deep within. It's gorgeously written, fiendishly clever, and full of heart to balance out its brain -- a perfect middle-grade read for fans of fairy tales and fierce storytelling.

 

****Young Adult Virginia Authors Nominee****


****AudioFile Earphone Award Winner****

"With its vivid Eastern European–flavored setting, dreamlike internal logic, and hopeful ending, this re-casting of traditional folklore will captivate readers."
---The Horn Book, Oct 2017

"The narration of this audiobook is spectacular. Thérèse Plummer brings power, venom, and precision, and David de Vries demonstrates equal power, along with warmth and humor. They transport listeners into the Polish Puszcza--a forest cold, dark, and full of magic. And wolves. And stories." ---AudioFile (Earphone Award)

Letters From Rapunzel

Once upon a time, there was a girl. Let's call her RAPUNZEL. A modern-day version. Abandoned. Alone. Waiting for her hair to grow and dreaming of a way to escape from her tower. She was TRAPPED, you see.

Not in the conventional fairy-tale way--this was the dreaded after-school Homework Club. A desolate place, where no gum could be chewed, and where Rapunzel sat, day after day, cursing the EVIL SPELL that had been cast over her father. The doctors called it something else, but a true HEROINE can smell an evil spell a mile away.

So when a mysterious letter addressed to P.O. Box #5667 falls into her hands, she knows she's found the pea under her mattress.

But since when is finding HAPPILY EVER AFTER as simple as Just Writing Back?
