Saturday, May 31, 2014

Stop by next Saturday June 7 between 12-3 to meet local author Melody Overton and pick up a signed copy of her new book (for grown-ups) "Tales of the Siren: A Starbucks Melody." 

Vignettes from Melody's blog and beyond illustrate her life in the community with the people at the heart of a behemoth that many consider a soulless corporation. Whether it's cleaning up Gas Works Park, feeding the homeless, or checking out a grand opening, Melody's anecdotes sparkle with a love for coffee & community --and give soul to the ubiquitous coffee giant.

Books We Love and New Arrivals 






Journey by Aaron Becker 
* Caldecott Honor Book, 2014 * 

A lonely girl draws a magic door on her bedroom wall and through it escapes into a world where wonder, adventure, and danger abound. Red marker in hand, she creates a boat, a balloon, and a flying carpet that carry her on a spectacular journey toward an uncertain destiny. When she is captured by a sinister emperor, only an act of tremendous courage and kindness can set her free. Can it also lead her home and to her heart's desire? 





Sky Color by Peter Reynolds 

Marisol is ready to paint the sky for the class mural, but she can't find the color she thinks she needs. A spectacular sunset on the bus ride home starts Marisol thinking. A many-hued dream later that night nurtures the idea that maybe, just maybe, there is another way. In this lovely book, the third in his Creatrilogy, which also includes The Dot and Ish, Peter H. Reynolds once again demystifies and celebrates the creative process, and expands the notion of what it means to be an artist. 






When Mermaids Sleep by Ann Bonwill

Take a bedtime journey to a land where mermaids sleep and pirates snore, where fairies slumber on flower petals and a giant's sleepy sighs make the valleys rumble. With Ann Bonwill's soft and soothing rhyme, and dreamy illustrations by acclaimed artists Steve Johnson and Lou Fancher, When Mermaids Sleep will effortlessly pull tired dreamers to a magical land of slumber. 






Hollow City: the Second Novel of 
Miss Peregrine's Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs 

The extraordinary journey that began in Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children continues as Jacob Portman and his newfound friends journey to London, the peculiar capital of the world. There, they hope to find a cure for their beloved headmistress, Miss Peregrine. But in this war-torn city, hideous surprises lurk around every corner. And before Jacob can deliver the peculiar children to safety, he must make an important decision about his love for Emma Bloom. Hollow City draws readers into a richly imagined world of telepathy and time loops, of sideshows and shapeshifters -- a world populated with adult "peculiars," murderous wights, and a bizarre menagerie of uncanny animals.
