My First Root Children
All through winter the root children sleep underground. When spring comes Mother Nature wakes them up, and they get ready to go outside into the sunshine with the beetles, bees and ladybirds. They play in the forest with the butterflies. In summer they dance in the meadow and by the stream. When autumn comes and the cold wind starts to blow, Mother Earth calls them back underground to go to sleep for the winter.The classic, seasonal Story of the Root Children is presented for the first time as a boardbook for very young children. While the overall story remains the same, the language has been simplified. All of the beautiful original illustrations are included, with some sympathetically adapted to fit the new format.
The Djinn in the Nightingale's EyeVintage. 2009
The magnificent title story of this collection of fairy tales for adults describes the strange and uncanny relationship between its extravagantly intelligent heroine--a world renowned scholar of the art of story-telling--and the marvelous being that lives in a mysterious bottle, found in a dusty shop in an Istanbul bazaar. As A.S. Byatt renders this relationship with a powerful combination of erudition and passion, she makes the interaction of the natural and the supernatural seem not only convincing, but inevitable. The companion stories in this collection each display different facets of Byatt's remarkable gift for enchantment. They range from fables of sexual obsession to allegories of political tragedy; they draw us into narratives that are as mesmerizing as dreams and as bracing as philosophical meditations; and they all us to inhabit an imaginative universe astonishing in the precision of its detail, its intellectual consistency, and its splendor. "A dreamy treat.... It is not merely strange, it is wondrous." --Boston Globe "Alternatingly erudite and earthy, direct and playful.... If Scheherazade ever needs a break, Byatt can step in, indefinitely." --Chicago Tribune "Byatt's writing is crystalline and splendidly imaginative.... These [are] perfectly formed tales." --Washington Post Book World From the Trade Paperback edition.

Little Missy Two-ShoesTate Publishing & Enterprises. 2013
Well, it's pretty hard to find any 2-year old who likes a Ladybug. So Dr. Margaret Aranda designed a 2-year old Birthday Party with a Ladybug Theme. Take the book as a Book Reading, have everyone wear black and red, bake a ladybug cake (as seen on her Facebook page), and watch as people roar when the real ladybugs come out of the Tupperware you buy at the local nursery! As the story unfolds, Little Missy Two-Shoes realizes that the roses and mountains and sunsets and butterflies live in the same world as the ladybugs, so they must not be all that bad. A brave, trusted relative can even volunteer to have the ladybugs unleashed on them as they sit on a chair, harmlessly smiling as they tickle arms and legs, searching for water. The children are simply transformed from fear to fascination, and forever embrace chance! That's what little Missy Two-Shoes is all about! Getting kids to like things that they just normally wouldn't like. And what a challenge, and how fun is that?
