While Princesses Sleep: Princesses of Chadwick Castle Adventure, Book 1 (Princess Castle Adventure Mystery series) is a tale ...of two sisters who are princesses. The Princesses Of Chadwick Castle Adventure is an eight-book series about two princess sisters, Elle age 12, and Belle, 10. The first book, While Princesses Sleep, is for readers six to eleven, and diaries their adventures which culminates in Book 8. While Princesses Sleep opens with the Princess Elle discovering a strange sound in the night. Curious, she determines the reason for these mysterious noises and starts the adventure with her sister, Belle. Something is afoot at the castle and they must find out what this is. However, finding the truth behind the secrets they stumble upon leads them to strange answers? What sort of trouble will the princesses get themselves into?    This children's illustrated story is written from a first person point of view and is similar to a princess diary type book. In the princesses' adventure they are also introduced to the world of ballet. The spin-off series (coming soon) will deal more with ballerinas and ballet stories.   Each full color book tells of the princesses' daily adventure living in the castle. The series features artwork from the art masters whose works have entered the public domain and are no longer restricted by copyright.   Who is the princess castle series for? I wrote the series primarily for girls age 7-12 but although it is a princess type story with mystery, action and adventure, I feel even a boy could enjoy the series. (Bear in mind these are princess stories for girls, essentially.) It being a full-color illustrated ebook and paperback I hope to expose young readers to artwork from master artists of the world. My hope is that the princess series will be a children's illustrated classic someday.   Other books in the series: The Princesses of Chadwick Castle Adventure Mystery series 1.

The Adventures of Asterix (French: Asterix or Asterix le Gaulois) is a series of French comic books written by Rene Goscinny and i...llustrated by Albert Uderzo (Uderzo also took over the job of writing the series after the death of Goscinny in 1977).

As of 2008, 33 comic books in the series have been released.The series follows the exploits of a village of ancient Gauls as they resist Roman occupation. They do so by means of a magic potion, brewed by their druid, which gives the recipient superhuman strength. The protagonist, the titular character, Asterix, along with his friend Obelix have various adventures. In many cases, this leads them to travel to various countries around the world, though other books are set in and around their village. For much of the history of the series (Volumes 4 through 29), settings in Gaul and abroad alternated, with even-numbered volumes set abroad and odd-numbered volumes set in Gaul, mostly in the village.The Asterix series is one of the most popular Franco-Belgian comics in the world, with the series being translated into over 100 languages, and it is popular in most European countries. The success of the series has led to the adaptation of several books into 11 films; eight animated, and three with live actors. There have also been a number of games based on the characters, and a theme park near Paris, Parc Asterix, is themed around the series. To date, 325 million copies of 33 Asterix books have been sold around the world making co-creators Rene Goscinny and Albert Uderzo France's bestselling authors abroad. read more

Monkey King is a twenty-volume comics series based on the legendary Chinese novel The Journey to the West. It is a magisterial wor...k that took seventy people over six years to complete. The Journey to the West is at once a comedy, a drama, a satire, a meditation on faith and discipline, and a fantastical dramatization of China's history. Its creation covers many centuries and several dynasties. Begun during the Song Dynasty (10th~13th century), Journey is set against the backdrop of the 7th century Tang Dynasty, and tells the story of a priest named San Zang, who introduces China to the Mahayana Buddhist scriptures of India, and his trio of disciples: the monkey king Sun Wu Kong, the gluttonous pig Zhu Bajie, and the quiet but noble sea monster Sha Wu Jing. The San Zang who appears in Journey to the West is a specialist in Tripitaka, and is based on a real priest, named Xuan Zang. Xuan Zang lived from 602 to 664, and have traveled the western lands and traded with other countries along the western border from 627 or 629 to 645. More than three hundred years later, a story based on Xuan Zang's adventures, first appeared. The Journey to the West originated from this story. The Song Dynasty was founded in 960, yet because the only known author of Journey to the West, Wu Cheng en, died in 1582, during the Ming Dynasty, the story is considered the result of collective creation spanning five hundred years. The story also traveled through several countries and includes at least four different timelines. The events of Journey to the West, which include epic battles and threatened palaces and imperiled kings, could resonate with readers during almost any age, but the story focuses on portraying a peaceful society where deviance is ultimately trumped by enlightenment, violence defeated by benevolence. It is this balance, between depicting familiar events of conquest and telling a story about the search for truth, that makes The Journey to the West so beloved today. The author, Mr. Wei Dong Chen, is a highly acclaimed and beloved Chinese artist and an influential leader in the New Chinese Cartoon trend. His company, Creator World in Tianjin, is the largest comics studio in China. He has published hundreds of cartoons, which have been recognized for their strong literary value throughout the world. In 2005, he undertook the monumental effort of translating four classic Chinese novels into serialized comic form. After six years of great and enthusiastic work, he completed his dream, which now consists of 12,800 pages of beautiful drawings and epic storytelling. Monkey King is one of the four novels. Monkey King is a new landmark of comic artistry in China, and is a bold and exhilarating treatment of one of the definitive works of Chinese literature. Vol.19 Masters and Disciples San Zang and his disciples have crossed the border into India, and their journey s conclusion is drawing closer by the hour. But being in a new country doesn t mean they won t encounter the same old villains, and the four companions will have to call on everything they ve learned to ensure the journey doesn t end before their final destination is reached. read more

Sara’s parents will do anything to live and raise their children as Jews. In Spain during the 1490’s, that means leaving wealth, v...aluables and a comfortable life behind to set sail for the Ottoman Empire. Sara is reluctant to leave her familiar childhood home until she understands what her priorities really are. Will Sara be able to save her friend from the clutches of the Inquisition? Will she rescue a precious heirloom challah plate from the heartless Spanish soldiers? And will she ever be up to the challenge of baking a perfect challah all by herself? More Precious than Gold is geared to children ages 7-10 who still need large, clear letters and an occasional illustration as they try out their skills. Most importantly, More Precious than Gold is packed with Jewish historical content and detail about the expulsion from Spain in 1492 to make a child's reading experience truly worthwhile. It's a story of adventure, sacrifice, and important Torah values of a family that chooses to leave behind all their wealth and the comfort of Spain in order to live in a country that will allow them to be fully, openly Jewish. More Precious than Gold is a carefully researched and excitingly written page-turner especially for second through fourth graders eager to read quality material on their own. read more

Light Switch To Heaven is the delightful tale of Queen Itup and Pick Itup working tirelessly every night while you are sleeping to... make the sky ready for the next day. As a child my father read me stories almost every night, but for me, that was simply the beginning. When the book closed and my eyes shut tight, that's when the real adventure began. Come see where your imagination will take you as you discover the magical thing called the light switch to heaven. . . About the Author: Much like the rest of you, I came into this world kicking and screaming. Later in life, kicking and screaming turned into temper tantrums. Sound familiar? Honestly, maybe one of the only times I would ever shut up was when I was tucked into bed and read a goodnight story. It's funny how at the age of 42, not only do I still remember those times, but I consider myself a better person because of them. I am very much a kid at heart, and am not ashamed to admit it. So here I am, sharing my story with anyone that will read it. In the end, it's not about how many awards I have received or how many books I have sold. For me, it all comes down to this: If one child falls asleep smiling tonight and wakes up tomorrow with his imagination running wild, well. . . that's perfectly alright with me. read more
