Books Description:

"Neigh!" said a horse. "Quack!" said a duck. "Beep!" said the friendly Little Blue Truck. Little Blue Truck is a joyful cacophony of animal and truck sounds that will have youngsters beeping and quacking—and begging for one more go-round! Along the way, readers see that it pays to be kind to our animal friends . . . if we show a friendly respect to others, we’re more likely to get help when we’re, say, stuck in the muck in a truck. Jill McElmurry’s gouache illustrations of wild-eyed farm animals and country roads are warm and wonderful, suiting the cheerfully rhyming text to a T. Beep!

Books Description:

Explore the world of such a little mouse--from the bestselling author of LITTLE BLUE TRUCK! "And way down deep in the hole lives a mouse. Such a little mouse, with his smart gray coat, with his ears pink as petals, with three twitchety whiskers on each side of his nose." With Alice Schertle's sweet descriptive language and touching illustrations from Stephanie Yue, a little mouse interacts with the world around him. Every season of the year, "such a little mouse" pops out of his hole and goes out to explore the wider world. Praise for Such a Little Mouse: * "The book begins in spring. 'In the middle of the meadow, under a clump of dandelions, there is a hole.' Out pops '[s]uch a little mouse,' with 'ears pink as petals' and a tiny smile. He sees bees on clover blossoms and his own reflection in a puddle. Each season is represented in one exploratory day. In summer, the mouse sees beavers and a porcupine; in autumn, rustling leaves, honking geese and busy ants. When winter arrives, he sees his landscape covered in snow. 'Brrrrrrr,' he says, retreating underground to his cozy burrow, which features tunnels and many discrete rooms--a bedroom, a kitchen and a fully stocked larder. All year he's been storing seeds, watercress and acorns; now he can bake acorn bread and cook seed-and-watercress soup. Preschoolers will recognize the wooden alphabet blocks that form the base of his counter. Seasons and animals aren't new topics, but Yue's idyllic meadowscapes are full of clean, fresh air. From full-page to spot illustrations, from the breezy greens, blues and yellows of spring to the rustic browns of underground, her colors glow gently. Her lines have a light touch but feel grounding; fine details, shadings and a real feel for weather make this special. ... Perfectly charming." -- Kirkus Reviews, starred review * "Yes, Schertle and Yue's hero is cute as can be, 'with his smart gray coat, with his ears pink as petals, with three twitchety whiskers on each side of his nose.' But he's also self-reliant, self-directed, and very much at home in the world--in other words, what readers in the target audience aspire to be. The story follows the mouse through spring, summer, and autumn as he emerges from his wonderfully snug underground home to gather food for his winter larder. Neither obsessive nor a procrastinator, the mouse knows he can get the job done and still have time to kibitz with neighbors (he contributes a twig to a beaver's dam) and savor the scenery (including his own handsome reflection in a puddle). Yue (the Guinea Pig, Pet Shop Private Eye series) channels her customary jaunty energy into a more old-school drawing style, delivering nature scenes that are warm but not treacly, while Schertle's gentle prose ('Such a little mouse. Off he goes into the wide world') has just enough repetition to provide a comforting structure and a cozy lilt." -- Publishers Weekly, starred review Praise for Little Blue Truck (written by Alice Schertle and illustrated by Jill McElmurry) * Schertle "gives readers plenty of opportunities to chime in with animal and vehicle noises." -- Publishers Weekly, starred review Praise for Very Hairy Bear (written by Alice Schertle and illustrated by Matt Phelan) * "Schertle's patterned language sets up a playful cadence." --Kirkus Reviews, starred review

Books Description:

Though primarily a writer of very accomplished fiction, Chet Williamson has also written non-fiction books, essays, plays, reviews, songs, and letters of complaint. What you’ll find in these pages is a grab-bag of his work that is largely unseen by his usual audience. There is one piece of fiction: “Returns.” And it is new to all but two readers. About ten years ago, Williamson began a secondary career as a playwright, having had a few produced—the most recent of which was He Comes For His Books, a roman a clef about Harold Pinter and first wife Vivien Merchant. There are two plays in his Little Blue Book—one a dramatic adaptation of one of his short stories, and the other of a novella. In the case of the novella, The Story of Noichi the Blind, Booklist said, "This extraordinary performance makes such comparably transgressive writing as the Marquis de Sade’s seem totally crude." The remaining pages contain reviews, tributes to four writers, and a handful of essays and blogs. A Little Blue Book of Bibliomancy promises to give readers new insights into one of our favorite writers.

When Garnet Raven was three years old, he was taken from his home on an Ojibway Indian reserve and placed in a series of foster homes. Having reached his mid-teens, he escapes at the first available opportunity, only to find himself cast adrift on the streets of the big city. Having skirted the urban underbelly once too often by age 20, he finds himself thrown in jail. While there, he gets a surprise letter from his long-forgotten native family. The sudden communication from his past spurs him to return to the reserve following his release from jail. Deciding to stay awhile, his life is changed completely as he comes to discover his sense of place, and of self. While on the reserve, Garnet is initiated into the ways of the Ojibway--both ancient and modern--by Keeper, a friend of his grandfather, and last fount of history about his people's ways. By turns funny, poignant and mystical, Keeper'n Me reflects a positive view of Native life and philosophy--as well as casting fresh light on the redemptive power of one's community and traditions.

This book has been in the making for over a decade, perhaps a lifetime. My reasons for writing about our family history are: to learn more about my ancestors, their beliefs, values, struggles, and accomplishments: and to learn about the resilience carried through the generations. I believe that I am the member of the family to do this. I also want a healing process to occur. And finally, I want this as a gift for my children and grandchildren and their descendants. The themes of my book relate to the perseverance and resilience in our family members. I have learned that darkness and light can often coexist closely, even in the same person, and I believe that staying in for the journey has resulted in many transformative experiences in my own life. I also believe that these have come as a result of my relationship with God.

Books Description:

It is an honor to have been asked to write an introduction to The Noblest, which is a collection of some of the work of a small group of people from different walks of life who came together in a writing workshop I gave at the John Noble Maritime Museum a few years ago. Together, we shared our writings, we listened to each other, and we grew into a family of friends. As you read their thoughts, their ideas, their stories, you will come to glimpse them as I have been privileged to do. Their poems, stories, and memoirs speak for themselves. They have opened their hearts and souls in their writings. Initially, I did not want to detract from their accomplishments with my own writings, but they are a persistent group and they prevailed. Tread softly as you read our works and enter into our lives. We hope our writing speaks to you and that you find a friend or two in these pages and that the words conjure memories, stimulate imagination, take you to special places, and give you pause to think. May I start you on your journey with a poem of my own. The letters leak from pens and pencils Like twisted linguine from aged grinders Into word salads that whisper feelings Sometimes buried, sometimes throbbing, Sometimes happy, sometimes sobbing. Pictures form of people Living quiet lives in troubled times Laughing, crying, sighing, Dreaming, loving, praying, Probing, wondering, remembering. They are the seasons of the years, The colors of the rainbow. Their images cling and clang, Stir and penetrate, invigorate and celebrate. They sing like the sunrise That while much may be taken Much abides and flourishes. Read our words and listen to our hearts With reverence, kindness, gratefulness and awe And learn once more we are not alone And all of us including you - still have much so much more to give. Thank you, George R. Hopkins

Books Description:

High school sweethearts, a tragic accident, and a second chance to salvage their love. Three years ago, an accident ripped Rowan Walker’s life apart. He doesn’t recognize himself or his life. He’s no longer a boyfriend, volunteer firefighter, and friend. But he’s got a plan to make amends and get his life back on track. If he catches the Caribou River Arsonist, it will be his apology letter to his family. To Eastwood. To Violet. Violet Ross has always been a fighter, but the darkness in Rowan’s head never played fair. Now, Violet has to avoid the man she still loves. No easy feat. They share custody of their dogs, and he hasn’t technically moved out yet. Slowly, she lets Rowan back into her life, and her heart reminds her that she’s never been a quitter. Old hurts don’t stay hidden long when loss and grief follow them around. Violet might still have some fight left in her, but she can’t win Rowan’s battles for him. She has her own to contend with, something she thought was long gone and buried. This small-town second chance romance is the second book in the Caribou River series but can be read as a standalone.

Books Description:

Growing up in a remote Northern community, Nick Sibbeston had little reason to believe he would one day fulfill his mother’s ambition of holding a career where he would “wear a white shirt.” Torn away from his family and placed in residential school at the age of five, Sibbeston endured loneliness, callous treatment and sexual assault by an older boy, but discovered a love of learning that would compel him to complete a law degree and pursue a career in politics. As a young, firebrand politician, Sibbeston played an instrumental role during a critical moment in Northwest Territories politics, advocating tirelessly to support the economic and political development of First Nations people in the North, and participating in early discussions of the separation of Nunavut. Sibbeston’s career advanced in great strides, first as an MLA, then one of Canada’s first Aboriginal lawyers, then as a cabinet minister and eventually premier of the Northwest Territories. Finally, he was appointed to the Senate of Canada, where he continues to represent the people of Canada’s North, not least in advocating for the generations affected by residential school policies. Although his years at residential school compelled Sibbeston to fight tirelessly for the rights of Aboriginal northerners, they also left a mark on his mental health, fuelling continual battles with anxiety, depression and addiction. It was only in later life that healing began to take place, as he battled his demons openly, supported not just by the medical community but also by his strong faith and the love of his wife and family.
