Summary

Austin knew the stories of magical creatures as well as anyone. 'Knockers' were grubby trolls that stand about two feet high, they wear old miners boots and tatty waistcoats and live on the pasty crusts that miners leave behind. The 'Pixies' were very different, small and could fit in a mans hand, always busy, thinking themselves better than anyone and enjoyed playing pranks on anyone around. 'No', thought Austin there can't be magical creatures, it was all just tittle tattle... But Austin was about to become a hero and change his mind on many things...

    “A joy to read out loud . . . A library dragon devouring all my favorite books is the scariest thing I can imagine!” —Eric Kimmel, author of the Caldecott Honor Book Hershel and the Hanukkah Goblins   Story time in the library has just come to an end when Max spies something amazing on one of the bookcases. It’s a large, speckled egg that with a loud CRACK breaks to reveal a small dragon. But the dragon doesn’t stay small for very long because he has a real appetite for books. Max tells his mom, the librarian, and even a policeman, but will anyone believe him before the dragon gobbles up the library?   Fresh and bright illustrations bring this story of library adventure to life. A list of Max’s “Book Care Tips” completes this fanciful tale for children, librarians, and anyone who has ever been enchanted by the wonders of the library.   “This dragon tale has all the elements to make it a modern classic and a storytelling staple.” —Stephanie Bange, storyteller, children’s librarian, and director, Charles and Renate Frydman Educational Resource Center, Wright State University “This clever story is sure to delight all lovers of dragons, books, and libraries. Repetition and refrain make it perfect for reading aloud at story time.” —Gale Criswell, former children and teen services consultant, State Library of Louisiana

    Little Jack Horner sat in a corner, 
    Eating a Christmas pie; 
    He put in his thumb and pulled out a plum 
    And said, "What a good boy am I!" 
    LITTLE JACK HORNER lived in an old, tumble-down house at the edge of a big wood; and there many generations of Horners had lived before him, and had earned their living by chopping wood. Jack's father and mother were both dead, and he lived with his grandfather and grandmother, who took great pains to teach him all that a boy should know. 
    They lived very comfortably and happily together until one day a great tree fell upon Grandpa Horner and crushed his legs; and from that time on he could not work at all, but had to be nursed and tended very carefully. 
    This calamity was a great affliction to the Horners. Grandma Horner had a little money saved up in an old broken teapot that she kept in the cupboard, but that would not last them a great time, and when it was gone they would have nothing with which to buy food. But little Jack was a brave and hard working little lad who tried as best he could to help his grandparents earn a few pennies for food. Then, he rescued a stranger in a bog and their fortunes took a turn for the better. But you had best listen to the whole story to see why Jack had such a plum pie to eat that Christmas day!

    A colorfully illustrated biography of a little French boy who would become an internationally known oceanographer and champion of the seas. 
     
    Once upon a time in France, a baby was born under the summer sun. His parents named him Jacques. As he grew, Jacques fell in love with the sea. He dreamed of breathing beneath the waves and swimming as gracefully as a fish. In fact, he longed to become a manfish. Jacques Cousteau grew up to become a champion of the seas and one of the best-known oceanographers in the world. In this lovely biography, poetic text and gorgeous paintings come together to create a portrait of Cousteau that is as magical as it is inspiring. 
     
    Praise for Manfish 
     
    “Berne offers a luminous picture-book biography about Jacques Cousteau . . . . Puybaret’s smooth-looking acrylic paintings extend the words’ elegant simplicity and beautifully convey the sense of infinite, underwater space.” —Booklist (starred review) 
     
    “This moving tribute to the great nautical observer and filmmaker is shot through with an authentically childlike sense of adventure and the thrill of discovery . . . . This poetic profile of a doer and a dreamer is certain to inspire fresh interest in discovering, and in caring for, our world’s wonders.” —Kirkus Reviews (starred review) 
     
    “A new generation of children is introduced to the pioneering oceanographer and filmmaker. Beginning with Cousteau’s childhood in France where he marveled at the sea and dreamed of breathing underwater, Berne reveals the unique mix of curiosity, ingenuity, and passion that drove Cousteau to make underwater exploration possible.” —School Library Journal
