Summary

Classic picture book for children. 15 illustrations, some color, some black-and-white. This edition as first published in 1912. According to Wikipedia: "Clement Clarke Moore (July 15, 1779 – July 10, 1863) was an American professor of Oriental and Greek literature at Columbia College, now Columbia University. He donated land from his family estate for the foundation of the General Theological Seminary, where he was a professor of Biblical learning and compiled a two-volume Hebrew dictionary. He is generally considered to be the author of the yuletide poem "A Visit from St. Nicholas", which later became famous as "'Twas the Night Before Christmas"... The poem, "arguably the best-known verses ever written by an American", was first published anonymously in the Troy, New York, Sentinel on December 23, 1823, and was reprinted frequently thereafter with no name attached. Moore later acknowledged authorship and the poem was included in an 1844 anthology of his works at the insistence of his children, for whom he wrote it." ... "Jessie Willcox Smith (September 6, 1863 – May 3, 1935) was one of the most prominent female illustrators in the United States during the Golden Age of American illustration. She was a prolific contributor to respected books and magazines during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. She illustrated stories and articles for clients such as Century, Collier's Weekly, Leslie's Weekly, Harper's, McClure's, Scribners, and the Ladies' Home Journal."

    Fortunes & Frenemies is the third book in Marti Dumas’s Creole tradition inspired, fun middle-grade contemporary 
    Wildseed Witch fantasy series, about a social-media-loving tween—and witch! 
    In the past year, Hasani has learned she’s a witch, been accepted by Les Belles Demoiselles, and formed her 
    own coven—and her YouTube followers for her makeup channel are growing every day. Now that she’s in eighth 
    grade, she’s ready to rule the school with all her witch powers and best friends by her side. 
    But frenemy LaToya is still at Riverbend Middle causing trouble, both magically and socially. LaToya’s determined 
    to befriend every single possible witch at school (and turn them against Hasani), and Hasani can’t 
    help but wonder if she’s got another scheme going. Witches aren’t supposed to interfere in each others’ 
    business—but what if LaToya is going to hurt someone? Or herself? Hasani and her friends Dee, Angelique, 
    and Luz have to figure out for themselves when it’s right to let things lie—and when it’s their responsibility to 
    stand up for their community.
