New York Times Bestseller! A School Library Journal Best Book of 2017 A never-before-published, previously unfinished Mark Twain children´s story is brought to life by Philip and Erin Stead, creators of the Caldecott Medal-winning A Sick Day for Amos McGee. In a hotel in Paris one evening in 1879, Mark Twain sat with his young daughters, who begged their father for a story. Twain began telling them the tale of Johnny, a poor boy in possession of some magical seeds. Later, Twain would jot down some rough notes about the story, but the tale was left unfinished . . . until now. Plucked from the Mark Twain archive at the University of California at Berkeley, Twain´s notes now form the foundation of a fairy tale picked up over a century later. With only Twain´s fragmentary script and a story that stops partway as his guide, author Philip Stead has written a tale that imagines what might have been if Twain had fully realized this work. Johnny, forlorn and alone except for his pet chicken, meets a kind woman who gives him seeds that change his fortune, allowing him to speak with animals and sending him on a quest to rescue a stolen prince. In the face of a bullying tyrant king, Johnny and his animal friends come to understand that generosity, empathy, and quiet courage are gifts more precious in this world than power and gold. Illuminated by Erin Stead´s graceful, humorous, and achingly poignant artwork, this is a story that reaches through time and brings us a new book from America´s most legendary writer, envisioned by two of today´s most important names in children´s literature. ´´will capture the imaginations of readers of all ages´´-USA Today, ? ? ? ? (out of four stars) ? ´´Samuel Langhorne Clemens himself would be proud.´´-Booklist, starred review ? ´´a cast of eccentric characters, celestially fine writing, and a crusade against pomp that doesn´t sacrifice humor.´´-Publishers Weekly, starred review ? ´´Completing a story penned by arguably America´s greatest author is no easy feat, but the Caldecott-winning author-illustrator (and husband-wife) team proves more than equal to the task. . . . A pensive and whimsical work that Twain would applaud.´´-Kirkus, starred review ? ´´The combination of Twain´s (often sarcastic) humor and ´´lessons of life,´´ a touch of allegory, and Stead´s own storytelling skills result in an awesome piece of fantasy.´´-School Library Journal, starred review ? ´´Beautifully understated and nuanced illustrations by Erin Stead add the finishing flourishes to this remarkable work.´´-Shelf Awareness, starred review ´´drawn with a graceful crosshatched intelligence that seems close to the best of Wyeth.´´-Adam Gopnik, The New York Times ´´Twain and the two Steads have created what could become a read-aloud classic, perfect for families to enjoy together.´´-The Horn Book ´´artful and meta and elegant´´-The Wall Street Journal ´´should inspire readers young and old to seek further adventures with Twain.´´-The Washington Post

A Victorian family gathers round the hearth, and one by one they tell each other their Winter´s tales.

Read aloud as they were originally intended to be, these stories of The Host, the Mother, and the Child are joined by the Grandfather, the Nurse, the Charwoman and others to while away the evening with fables, fairytales, ghost stories, and adventures.

An utterly satisfying sequel packed with razor-sharp dialogue, a love triangle you didn´t see coming, and the most charismatic dynamic duo you ever met. Now that the infuriating and irresistible Philip Digby has left town for a lead on his sister who disappeared years ago, Zoe Webster is looking forward to a quiet spring semester. She´s dating a cute quarterback, hanging out with new friends, and enjoying being ´´a normal´´. Which is of course when Digby comes back. He needs Zoe´s help, and not just to find his sister. Zoe can either choose to stay on her current path toward popularity, perfect SAT scores, and Princeton, or she can take a major detour with Digby and maybe find out what that kiss he stole from her really meant. Digby and his over-the-top schemes always lead somewhere unexpected, and Zoe´s beginning to learn she might just like jumping into the unknown. When it comes to Digby, for Zoe at least, the choice might already be made. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Kathleen McInerney.

Lucia It all started with a contract signed by him, then by me, while our families watched. While my father sat silent, a man defeated, giving his daughter to the Benedetti monsters. I obeyed. I played my part. I signed my name and gave away my life. I became their living, breathing trophy, a constant symbol of their power over us. That was five years ago. Then came the time for him to claim me. For Salvatore Benedetti to own me. I had vowed vengeance. I had learned hate. And yet nothing could have prepared me for the man who now ruled my life. I expected a monster, one I would destroy. But nothing is ever black or white. No one is either good or evil. For all his darkness, I saw his light. For all his evil, I saw his good. As much as he made me hate him, a passion hotter than the fires of hell burned inside me. I was his, and he was mine. My very own monster. Salvatore I owned the DeMarco Mafia princess. She belonged to me now. We had won, and they had lost. And what better way to teach a lesson than to take from them that which is most precious? Most beloved? I was the boy who would be king. Next in line to rule the Benedetti family. Lucia DeMarco was the spoils of war. Mine to do with as I pleased. It was my duty to break her. To make her life a living hell. My soul was dark; I was hell bound. And there was no way out, not for either of us. Because the Benedetti family never lost, and in our wake we left destruction. It´s how it had always been. How I believed it would always be. Until Lucia. Author´s note: Salvatore and Lucia´s story is a steamy stand-alone romance with a happily ever after. No cliff-hanger and no cheating. It is intended for mature listeners. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Philip Alces. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/071605/bk_acx0_071605_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.
