Summary

A magical fantasy adventure about the high cost of loving, from the award-winning author of My Teacher Is an Alien and The Unicorn Chronicles.   Juliet Dove is a girl who doesn't like to be noticed. But though she may be shy, she has a wickedly sharp wit. Whenever someone does take notice of her, she tears into the person with a savagery that’s earned her the nickname “Killer.”   Juliet ends up leaving Mr. Elives’s magic shop with Helen of Troy's amulet—that is, a virtual man magnet. Juliet doesn’t know what she’s got, but the boys in her class do—they start to notice her . . .   Soon every boy in town is swooning for her. Yet, much as she’d like to lose all the unwanted attention, she can’t: The amulet won't come off!  “Although humorous, the story has surprising depth, with musings on honor, power, strength, courage, and, above all, love.” —School Library Journal “A rare book . . . . Funny [and] absorbing.” —Miami Herald
Available since: 03/17/2015.

    What does peace smell like? What does it taste like? Feel, sound or look like? Through Sensing Peace, children ages 4 to 7 are encouraged to see what peace looks, sounds, feels, tastes and smells like in their everyday moments—things like laughing, cooking, gardening, singing or sharing ice cream.Through this encouraging and delightful story, children will realize that peace isn’t something big out there that only adults can know about—they already experience and create peace in meaningful ways each day.“Peace is the feeling of having a safe place to live and a warm place to rest. Peace feels like everyone having enough, no one too little and no one too much. It’s the feeling of full tummies for all the world’s children, the smell of summer barbecues and picnics, block parties and neighborhood gatherings waftingthrough the street—bidding all neighbors to come, eat, share, and be together.”—Suzana E. Yoder
