Description

Small plastic toy or hero of mammoth proportions, George is a character you won't soon forget. George is hardly bigger than a child's middle finger. His knees and his elbows don't bend and his legs are fused together. When Katie and Mackenzie find him at the edge of the ocean, they are unimpressed, but George keeps turning up in their lives. And what may seem ordinary to a girl and a boy can be an awesome adventure if you are six centimeters tall.

Find the Magic, A Rip Sqeak Story

Lee Cohen (author), Julia Harnett Harvey (illustrator)

Publisher: Raven Tree Press ISBN: 9781621671664

The world of Rip Squeak exists in a summer cottage in the country where no humans live ten months out of the year. The stories are about Rip Squeak and his little sister Jesse and their strange friendship with Abbey, and abandoned kitten, and a frog named Euripides. Rip and Jesse live inside the walls of a summer cottage. Abbey prefers to befriend creatures like mice and frogs and birds rather than other cats. She introduces Rip and Jesse to her friend Euripides, a very entertaining actor and storyteller who lives and breathes the theater. Through Rip's own words, the books introduce the stories of these creatures and the friendships they develop, setting the stage for adventures yet to come. The story of Rip Squeak and his friends continues in this third book of the Rip Squeak Series. Rip Squeak returns in a rollicking new adventure as a trip to an old bookshop sends Rip and his friends off on fantastic journeys through imagination and history. Brave knights, fairy princesses and a magic carpet ride are all part of the fun when Rip, Jesse, Abbey and Euripides Find the Magic!
