A little girl sails her raft across a sea of words, arriving at the house of a small boy and calling him away on an adventure.

Now a lifetime of magic and adventure lies ahead of him . . . but who will be next? Combining elegant images by Oliver Jeffers and Sam Winston's typographical landscapes shaped from excerpts of children's classics and lullabies, A Child of Books is a stunning prose poem on the rewards of reading and sharing stories--an immersive and unforgettable reading experience that readers will want to pass on to others.

Harry Jameson, an itinerant joiner, longs to settle in one place, marry, and raise a family. So far, God has planned otherwise, but then Harry's latest woodcarving job brings him into the vicinity of Castle Trent... and into the desolate life of Ishmaela Trenton. Life holds little meaning for the neglected, abused, dirty maiden until the day she meets Harry. Maela's mother is dead, and her natural father, Sir Hanover Trenton, views her only as a commodity to barter with. Through Harry, Maela discovers her own worth in God's eyes-and she learns to love the handsome joiner. However, their love seems hopeless, for Lord Trenton would never consent to give his daughter to a commoner. Surely God would not give Maela new life only to leave her helpless in the hands of wicked men! Will Harry move on to new jobs and let his little pupil fend for herself?
'The Holocaust is a drug and I have entered an opium den . . . I will discover that there is no end to the dealers I can find for just one more hit. My parents don't even realize that they are drug dealers. They could never imagine the kind of high H gives, making me want to dive into its endless depth. Sending me out to libraries to read any and every book that dealt with the Holocaust . . . the paper could all be chopped up into a fine powder, like ash, perhaps, laid down, row upon row, and snorted' Uniquely structured and uniquely told, I Was a Child of Holocaust Survivors is a distillation of Bernice Eisenstein's memories of her 1950s childhood as the daughter of Yiddish-speaking parents whose experiences during the war, while rarely spoken of, were nonetheless a constant presence. Eisenstein's parents met in Auschwitz as the war was ending, and were married shortly after its liberation. This extraordinary memoir began to take root in her imagination several years ago, almost a decade after her father's death; she began with a series of drawings of her father, but realized that pictures alone could not convey what she had to say - 'And so I entered into a dance between pictures and the written word. I had two languages that worked together - to translate the layered meaning of my past, and that of my parents, on to the page.' In an amazing synthesis of prose and illustration, and with poignancy and searing honesty, Eisenstein explores with ineffable sadness and bittersweet humour her childhood growing up in the shadow of the Holocaust, while also addressing universal themes of memory, loss and recovery of the past. I Was a Child of Holocaust Survivors is striking, original and unforgettable; it has the makings of a classic.

When your church becomes the scene of the crime, how do you move forward with forgiveness and love in your heart? When the bell tolls for your pastor and your church family, where do you get the strength to say farewell? On June 17, 2015, a young white supremacist walked through a side entrance of “Mother” Emmanuel AME Church in Charleston, South Carolina, and killed nine people. In A Child of the “Mother”, author Evelyn Rose Sinkler, a longtime parishioner, tells how the history of hatred of blacks in America once again reared its ugly head, and she discusses how members of that church were thrust into unimaginable days of grief. She reveals her journey of mourning and chronicles the days of the funerals as an usher at some of the funerals. Sinkler shares the emotional roller coaster the church family experienced as they memorialized the lives of their pastor and friends. Through heartfelt words, journal entries, and poems, this memoir offers a testament of the love and respect Sinkler holds for the nine lives lost and the survivors of June 17, 2015. It also provides a testament that family and a church family built on a foundation of love can lift one up during the darkest hours.
