About the Books

Eenie Meenie Halloweenie - It's Halloween eve, and a little girl has a dress-up trunk full of different costume ideas! Orange tights and Daddy's tux can transform her into a penguin--or she could be an elephant, with pillowcases for her ears and a sock for her nose! What costume will she choose? Eenie Meenie Halloweenie is a celebration of the ingenuity of an adorable girl creating fun costumes from everyday materials. Readers will be inspired to do the same!

A Magic Spark (Fairylight Friends #1) - Ruby, Iris, and Pip go to fairy school together and they are best friends. Ruby loves to make art, Iris loves to fly fast, and Pip loves to grow things. Now, each of them must discover their special fairy power. Fly along with these fairy friends on their magical adventures, as they bake a snazzy cake, zoom across the night sky, and plan a big surprise party. With easy-to-read text and full-color artwork throughout, this sparkly early reader series is perfect for beginning readers!
