Description


Expressions of love have occurred throughout the ages in innumerable varieties. Sonnets, soliloquies, songs; 'countless ways' is the true answer to Elizabeth Barrett Browning's question How do I love thee? Often, the simplest answer is best, use the word itself: Love. In Animals Spell Love, gorgeously written and designed by David Cundy, sixteen critters from the farthest reaches of the animal kingdom help readers of all ages learn how to express the word in sixteen languages from around the globe, from Czech to Amharic to Korean, and even including American Sign Language. Children and adults will delight in the way Cundy shapes the letters into animals, and his brief primers, complete with pronunciation guide for every incarnation, will help readers more fully appreciate, indulge in, and understand the languages of love.

For fantasy fans who want a more historical tale, or historical fiction buffs who want something a little more fantastical this genre-bending book is the perfect choice! It follows Lee Westfall, a young woman living in 19th century Georgia who has a secret: she is a gold diviner. When tragedy strikes her family, her only option for escape and opportunity seems to be joining a wagon trail west to strike it rich in California’s gold rush. But the journey is more harrowing than she can imagine… she must disguise herself as a boy and face all manner of tribulations on the trail. This book is incredibly engrossing… not only is the story suspenseful, but the characters and fantastical elements are portrayed in such an intimate way it feels almost like reading real history. - Linnea
