New, Unusual, and Special Books

cover Patricia Gatto "Milton's Dilemma" (Children's / Youth Issues) For more about this book and its author, see: www.joyfulproductions.com.
Milton's Dilemma is the tale of a lonely boy's magical journey to friendship and self-acceptance. Milton struggles to fit in, but is teased by the school bullies.

cover Shirley Cheng "Daring Quests of Mystics" (Fantasy)  For more information see www.shirleycheng.com.
The prodigious, stone castle overlooked a prominent countryside of the kingdom known as Noxellia, where days were filled with the bliss of sunshine kissing the gentle rolling hills yonder, while impish winds playfully teased women's hair as trees whistled tunes of joy. It was certainly a scene of exquisite tranquility--or so it seemed.

Thousands of people of all ranks and ages flooded into King Fulacian's castle for the charming Princess Sophia's seventeenth birthday. Dancing, music, and feasting of all sorts and varieties of dishes were the main menu of the day. At last, the special highlight of the event was brought forth--a reading of fortune by Dawn, a speial friend of the royal family. Turning to the princess, the oracle uttered these startling words, "Terror and adventure you shall face on your wedding day." Where upon, two gifts were bestowed upon Princess Sophia: a white dove and a multi-colored ring of rhinestones. How could a dove and a ring possibly help her? Little did she know that these presents would be of so much help as daring quests were conquered, and that the importance of life was taught and cherished more so in each tale.

Cat Flinging It's hard to categorize this work, but it's clearly worth a try.

The LullaLee Series seeks to bring joy, and self-development tools that encourage hope.
