This original tale of "hold hands and stick together" traces the footsteps of six young bottle gourds from the emerald green valle...y of their birth to the loving arms of their "new vines" - six young students of hula who live far from the little gourds' homeland. This book is an imaginative look into the life story of a hula implement. Separated from their vines at a tender age, the little gourds are taken to the home of a local implement maker. There they meet Uncle Ka Leo, a grand and grumpy ipu heke, who gives them tantalizing glimpses of what they someday may become. Even though the little gourds are frightened and insecure, sticking together gives them the courage that carries them safely through their many adventures. While one of the little gourds is constantly worried that his imperfection will be his downfall, it turns out in the end (as it does for many of us) that his imperfection is what makes him special and unique. As the hula students learn about their new implements, the little gourds learn about themselves as well. Once each girl finds the ipu hula they feel is really, really theirs, the little gourds find that they too have re-captured their long-lost feelings of "being connected." In spite of life's uncertainties and insecurities, this story reminds us all that happy endings are possible, even in the most unexpected of places. Read More

THE CAT, THE SUN, AND THE MIRROR is a private-detective story like no other. Its basis is twofold. First, the ancient Japanese myt...h of the Sun Goddess who disappears, thus casting the world in darkness. Second, the American myth of the loner hero. So what happens is this: one morning people in the city any city wake up to find the Sun was gone missing that was a fact. Who to turn to? A private eye, that s who but not just any one: Wow, this private eye is one Cool Cat He s got to be, wearin that hat. But where would he find our missing Lady Sun? His search takes him to Mister Bigg, who wears the crown, the boss of all the crime in town ; then to Major Domo, a go-between for the elite the jet-set crowd, the power brokers, the proud ; then to the Sun s brother, the Lord of the Sea, who has aspirations to be number one a much bigger Ocean, without the Sun. Blind alleys, all of them. Finally, aided by a tip from the guru-like Old Dog and helped by Major Domo s daughter, the Majorette, Cool Cat finds the Sun in a very unlikely place. But will she return to shed her light on a world that no longer appreciates her? The book is 96 pages, roughly half of them illustrations. In the past few years, as the story was developed in readings in various parts of the country (see list of readings and performances at coolcatnoir.tumblr.com), the creators have found that the combination of these illustrations and the rhymed verse of the narration and dialogue have achieved total success in holding the attention and gaining the appreciation of audiences ranging in age from three years to ninety. The same was true for the staged production in the summer of 2011 in Northeast Pennsylvania, in which the illustrations were projected on a scrim above the stage. Many more readings are being planned, including several in New York City (including at the Japan Society of New York), where the two authors and the illustrator all have extensive contacts in the literary, theatre, dance, and political worlds. Other locations in Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, North Carolina (Raleigh-Durham, Asheville), California (Bay Area), and New Orleans are all on the list. The illustrator, Hannah Way Rawe, has already had Cool Cat buttons made and is now working on mugs and T shirts. And more Cool Cat/ Majorette mystery-adventures are on the way: THE CAT, THE PRINCE, AND THE GOLDEN HERON, also based on a myth (about bioluminescence) has been written, and THE CAT, THE TWINS, AND THE BALLGAME (about the Mayan myth of the Hero Twins) is in progress. We, the creators of THE CAT, THE SUN, AND THE MIRROR, know that its enchanting mixture of fantasy, film-noir atmospherics, romance, socially conscious messaging, unique characters, and a fun writing style has broad appeal: it has been tested in readings and performances, and it has passed.

This book is about a young frog who almost gets in trouble almost all of the time but hardly ever passes up the opportunity to mee...t new swamp critters including two children who have totally different opinions of frogs. Almost Hardly learns about the abundant rewards and occasional dangers of curiosity as well as the value of persistence and perseverance. Our illustrator has captured Almost?s close calls vividly and memorably. The story is told in the poetic dialect we call ?Swamp Talk,? the use of which reinforces the idea that there is nothing to be ashamed of about speaking your own particular language or dialect, but there is much value in learning more about and using the main language in which you must play, learn, and work. For the benefit of the young reader, the book includes a brief description of ?swamp talk? and a glossary of some of its words. The author, Jim Kline, is a retired college teacher (Language, Literature, and English as a Second Language) who earned degrees from Georgia Southern College (BS 1964), the University of Georgia (MA 1967) and the University of Nevada Reno (Ph D 1972). He has written poetry for young readers ( Hoggerel, The Frog and the Snake); however, this is his first children?s book. He and his wife Mary live in Aiken, SC where they entertain and are entertained by numerous grandchildren and great grandchildren. The Illustrator, Penny Bradley, earned a Bachelors of Fine Arts in Painting and Drawing from the University of Georgia in 1968. After raising their three children in the Atlanta area, she and her husband Jim have happily retired to the Northeast Georgia Mountains.

Top 100 Childrens Adventure Novels. The Coral Island: A Tale of the Pacific Ocean by Robert Michael Ballantyne. The C...oral Island: A Tale of the Pacific Ocean (1858) is a novel written by Scottish author R. M. Ballantyne. One of the first works of juvenile fiction to feature exclusively juvenile heroes, the story relates the adventures of three boys marooned on a South Pacific island, the only survivors of a shipwreck. A typical Robinsonade ? a genre of fiction inspired by Daniel Defoe's Robinson Crusoe ? and one of the most popular of its type, the book first went on sale in late 1857 and has never been out of print. Among the novel's major themes are the civilising effect of Christianity, 19th-century British imperialism in the South Pacific, and the importance of hierarchy and leadership. It was the inspiration for William Golding's dystopian novel Lord of the Flies (1954), which inverted the morality of The Coral Island; in Ballantyne's story the children encounter evil, but in Lord of the Flies evil is within them. The novel was considered a classic for elementary-school children of the early 20th century in Britain, and in the United States it was a staple of suggested reading lists for high-school students. Modern critics consider The Coral Island to feature a dated imperialist view of the world, but although it is less popular today than it once was, it was adapted into a four-part children's television drama broadcast by ITV in 2000.
