Publisher: Sleeping Bear Press ISBN: 9781627535953

The young maiden Leelinau is forbidden from going into the Spirit Wood. But Leelinau so enjoys her time spent there with the Pukwudjinees (the tiny fairies of the forest) that she risks playing with them time and time again. The legend explores the resistance many of us harbor of entering adulthood. This is the fifth title written by Kathy-jo Wargin and illustrated by Gijsbert van Frankenhuyzen in our Legend series which currently has 400,000 copies in print. The Legend of the Sleeping Bear, the title that began the series, is the official State of Michigan childrens's book. "Leelinau was so happy to be in the Spirit Wood once again that she began to dance all around. Then she sat down amidst a mess of large tree roots that fit like a chair made just for her. But this time, as she sat there to rest, she heard strange whispers. At first, Leelinau thought it sounded like baby robins trying to catch their first breaths, or ferns being tossed back and forth in the wind. But Leelinau wasn't quite sure, so she listened more carefully. She heard more whispers, and then voices. Leelinau became frightened. Her heart pounded like a large drum in her chest, and her throat felt tight and narrow."

Fibblestax

Devin Scillian (author), K. L. Darnell (illustrator)

Publisher: Sleeping Bear Press ISBN: 9781627536370

"I dreamed again of Fibblestax, sitting among his books, Peering into the candlelight with a calm, thoughtful look. For he's the one who gives a name to every single thing. If not for him we couldn't talk. Or read, or write, or sing..." So begins the delightful fable of Fibblestax, and how he came to be the one who names everything. He has to battle the tricky, red-faced Carr, a man who "gives terrible names to wonderful things." The mayor of their town gives them five things to name, and the final one, "that very strange feeling, a dreamy kind of cheer/the feeling that makes you feel so good when a special friend is near" stumps Carr. But, Fibblestax knows that feeling... With soft, intricately detailed illustrations to accompany the musical text, this book will surely become a special favorite for children of all ages.
