"An epic ride!" - Susie Floros, Editor-in-Chief, Snowboard Magazine
Woo hoo! Eight-year-old G.G. finally gets to snowboard. She boldly tells her family, "It's the halfpipe or nothing!" But it's a lot harder than she expected. Can G.G. brave that crazy flying couch, the lift? Slide the rails at the terrain park with her cousin Carlos? Or even ride the ginormous, scary halfpipe?
Shred the mountain with sassy, spunky G.G. in the first of this fresh, new chapter book series for kids ages 5-9.
With photo illustrations by a former member of the U.S. Snowboard Team!
Wild, brave Tempest wants summer to last forever. Her calm, timid sister, Serena, can't wait for the start of the new school year.
On the first day, Tempest decides to skip fourth grade, seek adventure by using magic to sprout wings, and fly away to exotic places. As she waves good-bye, Serena promises to save her sister's seat on the bus. Will Tempest make it home? Can Serena keep her promise? As each sister battles bullies, disasters, and loneliness, they discover they're more alike than they know. The Adventures of Tempest & Serena is that rare mix: a suspenseful yet charming chapter book for ages 7 and up.

Introduce children ages 3 to 8 to the crazy Splatters family. They're a rude and messy bunch who live in chaos. So when they get an invitation from the Duchess to join her for a fancy dinner...it's time for a crash course in manners (and some fun!).
Kids will love the colorful artwork and characters and will want their favorite adult to read aloud the catchy rhyming text again and again. They might not even notice they're receiving etiquette lessons on table manners, teamwork, cleanliness, and proper language right along with the Splatters.

Chapter books are so misunderstood.
Teachers, parents and writers usually nod in understanding when I use the phrase "chapter books." Sometimes that means they really do know what I mean. Other times they're nodding just to be polite. And then there's that great gob of adults who have absolutely no clue what a chapter book is. They usually give me a look that says, "Did you just start speaking Mandarin? Because I have NO idea what you're talking about."
