“I was born,” he began, “by a dumpster at noon, In a broken down doghouse with only one room, With only one window we used as a door, With rats in the rafters and mud on the floor.”Raised by a single parent, the outlaw collie Sam and his seven siblings run wild and free, feasting on castaway food in garbage cans and chasing after humans to scare them, all for the fun of it. Then one day disaster strikes. Sam and his brothers and sisters mistakenly frighten the wrong human. The Catchers arrive at the dilapidated doghouse in the middle of the night, guns in hand. Sam is wounded. But he manages to escape.The next day, Sam is found by a keeper, a kind human who takes the dog home and sets about training him.“He healed my wound and he purchased a tag. I trained to the collar and re-learned to wag. It wasn’t all easy. Oh no, to be sure. I yearned for the smell of the pack and the poor. I longed for my snout in the wind and the fun, For the thrill of the free in the rush of the run. But slowly I learned that I had to obey. The Keeper was mine if I wanted to stay.”The Trial of the Outlaw Collie Sam is so far outside the box that it’s difficult to label as anything but absolutely unique. Part poem, part fantasy, part courtroom drama, and part - a very large part - the true story of the real outlaw collie Sam, a Heinz-57 variety mongrel dog whose life and adventures were the inspiration for the story.The Trial of the Outlaw Collie Sam and its companion story about the real Sam are both captivating tales. The story of the trial itself is beautifully told. It bounces along in an almost musical fashion - especially when the narrative poem describing it is read aloud. It provides an intimate glimpse into how “guilt” or “innocence” is established for our animal friends.And the story about the real outlaw collie Sam? Well, that is worth listening to too, if for no other reason than to avoid making the same mistakes that the 1. Language: English. Narrator: Devon Michael Scott.

Every year on the hazelnut farm, magic happens. It's a place where stories, music, good food, family, and friends come together year round-but as summer comes to an end, things begin to change. On this working farm, the boys watch Dad and Grandpa do the tasks that need to be done as they head to the arbor to play, climb trees, and dream up new adventures. The totes are stacked high on the farm, and the tractor and harvester are ready for Mother Nature's sign. Even the young boys know that great care must be taken to keep the orchard floor clean and prepared for when the nights become cooler and the nuts begin to fall. Suddenly, harvest time begins and so too the flurry of activity on the farm! Grandpa and Dad are hardworking farmers who have learned how to care for the land. They pass on respect of the hazelnut farm, the place they call home, to the next generation as youngsters watch and grow like the trees on their family farm. Someday, these little boys will be the adults, and then, it will be their turn to work hard and care for the Earth's many treasures. 'A fun portrayal of a multi-generational farming family and farm life told from a youngster's perspective. Grandpa's passion for farming and desire to pass on the tradition is genuine and heartfelt.' -TJ Hafner, third-generation family farmer, agronomist

Alyssa Gardner has been down the rabbit hole. She was crowned Queen of the Red Court and faced the bandersnatch. She saved the life of Jeb, the boy she loves, and escaped the machinations of the disturbingly appealing Morpheus. Now all she has to do is graduate high school. That would be easier without her mother, freshly released from an asylum, acting overly protective and suspicious. And it would be much simpler if the mysterious Morpheus didn’t show up for school one day to tempt her with another dangerous quest in the dark, challenging Wonderland—where she (partly) belongs. Could she leave Jeb and her parents behind again, for the sake of a man she knows has manipulated her before? Will her mother and Jeb trust her to do what’s right? Readers will swoon over the satisfying return to Howard’s bold, sensual reimagining of Carroll’s classic. Read all the books in the New York Times bestselling Splintered series: Splintered (Book 1), Unhinged (Book 2), Ensnared (Book 3), and Untamed (The Companion Novel). Get books 1 through 3 in the Splintered boxed set, available now!Praise for Unhinged 'I really enjoyed the first book of this series, but Unhinged cranks the Wonderland experience up to 11. It's just ... WOW! The last few scenes dangle Alyssa's next adventure with shockers enough that I found my jaw needing a bit of assistance in coming off the floor. Write quickly, A.G. Howard! I need that next book!' --USA Today 'Howard excels in sensory and sensuous descriptions.' --Kirkus Reviews 'As intense, dark, and weird as the first volume, this worthy sequel creates a parallel narrative that brings the action out of Wonderland and into Alyssa’s hometown.' --The Bulletin of The Center for Children’s Books 'A dark beauty fills the novel's pages, which will mesmerize teens with a taste for magic, romance or suspense. Unhinged lays the groundwork for a third book where anything could happen--it is Wonderland, after all.' --Shelf AwarenessPraise for Splintered:STARRED REVIEW 'Fans of dark fantasy, as well as of Carroll’s Alice in all her revisionings (especially Tim Burton’s), will find a lot to love in this compelling and imaginative novel.' —Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books'Alyssa is one of the most unique protagonists I've come across in a while. Splintered is dark, twisted, entirely riveting, and a truly romantic tale.' —USA Today 'Brilliant, because it is ambitious, inventive, and often surprising — a contemporary reworking of Lewis Carroll’s “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland,’’ with a deep bow toward Tim Burton’s 2010 film version.' —The Boston Globe 'It’s a deft, complex metamorphosis of this children’s fantasy made more enticing by competing romantic interests, a psychedelic setting, and more mad violence than its original.' —Booklist ' Protagonist Alyssa...is an original. Howard's visual imagination is superior. The story's creepiness is intriguing as horror, and its hypnotic tone and setting, at the intersection of madness and creativity, should sweep readers down the rabbit hole.' —Publishers Weekly 'While readers will delight in such recognizable scenes as Alyssa drinking from a bottle to shrink, the richly detailed scenes that stray from the original will entice the imagination. These adventures are indeed wonderful.' —BookPage 'Attention to costume and setting render this a visually rich read...' —Kirkus Reviews 'Wonderland is filled with much that is not as wonderful as might be expected, and yet, it is in Wonderland that Alyssa accepts her true nature. The cover with its swirling tendrils and insects surrounding Alyssa will surely attract teen readers who will not disappointed with this magical, edgy tale.' —Reading Today Online 'Creepy, descriptive read with a generous dollop of romance.' —School Library Journal

In the sequel to bestselling author Merriweather Hope's 'Magical Sweets in Story Time,' Jinn, Stefan, and Kaia are joined by two new companions in their quest to save magic! Stefan's best friend Adam has been feeling left out because Stefan's been spending all his time with Kaia (he thinks Kaia is Stefan's girlfriend!) so Stefan and Kaia decide to tell him about all the secret adventures they've been having. Little do they know, but Adam has a magical item of his own - a little dragon figurine - and when Jinn shows up and turns it into a REAL dragon named Fire, the friends very quickly find themselves on another adventure. Now time is running out, and Stefan, Kaia, Jinn, Adam, and Fire have to travel through story time in search of the dragons lair to try and reunite the last surviving dragons before they all disappear forever! In this next installment of the magical series: 'Jinn began to chant her spell… 'Magical universe hear my call, Transport us through the vortex wall, Get us safely from here to there, To rescue the Princess from Brother Grimm's lair' As she finished speaking, she raised her right hand and sent up a bright red ray of light out of her fingers. It formed a red cloud and when Jinn clicked her fingers it started to rain. Hundreds of drops of golden liquid began to fall on them. Kaia watched as the drops hit her arm and the places where it touched her, began to disappear. It was almost as if someone was using a giant eraser to rub her out. She looked around and saw that everyone else seemed to also be disappearing. The next minute, a huge flash of golden lightning shot out of the clouds. It hit the floor just in front of where they were standing. This opened up a huge swirling hole in the ground. It was like when you pulled the plug out the bath and all the water swirled around as it ran down the drain. Only this was more like a volcano because the colors were red and gold like hot lava. 'Get ready. When I say so, jump into the vortex,' Jinn told them. 'Jump!' shouted Jinn a few moments later…. The last thing Kaia saw as they all jumped into the vortex was Stefan's huge grin. 'Never a dull moment when Jinn's around,' she thought. Scroll up to get your copy of 'Dragons at Dessert Time' to find out what happens next! Fans of Merriweather Hope have said the Fairy Tales & Magical Adventures series is perfect for lovers of the Magic Tree House books.
