Here There Be Dragons & Way Up High – Trade Edition
Here There Be Dragons
Mister Gibberling picked up his quill, and with a great flourish of the feather wrote (in fancy letters): Here There Be Dragons. Then he would smile because he had explained a new territory.
Thus, in a tiny, isolated kingdom long ago and far away, everyone believed that the world beyond was infested with fearsome, fire-breathing dragons and no one dared venture forth. No one, that is, except William, fourth (and wisest) advisor to the king, whose bravery would change forever the course of events in the little kingdom.
The princess’ birthday party promised to be a gala affair. The great dining hall of the palace resounded with music. There was dancing and wine and big platters of food. There were whole roasted pigs with apples in their mouths…There was everything that a person could possibly want at a birthday party. Except for fire- works, that is. Or a fire-breathing dragon.
Join in the adventure and watch the fireworks flare as William and his new-found friend, Bell, bring surprise and enlightenment to everyone in the land.
Way Up High
“Sort of,” he said. “In the way that the sun making you feel warm and good is magic, in the way that the wind blowing part you when you spread your wings and soar is Magic…The kind of magic everyone’s got…Your own way of seeing things. Mine is the pterodactyl way.”
When Susi cut through the old orchard, shady and secret and out-of-the-way, she was alone. Then, on a fine, warm, sunny day during the last week of school she met Herman, a lonesome pterodactyl sunning himself on a rock. So began an extraordinary summer of friendship, adventure, discovery and…magic.
“Drink in the night,” he said. “Breathe deeply. Look at the world all laid out before you, sparkling through the dark. It is your world, warm-blooded Susi, not mine.”
Take flight with Susi and Herman for an adventure never to be forgotten . . . one that will leave you filled with joy and touched with sadness.
