Using a powerful ?play-lesson? format, The Mary Frances Garden Book 100th Anniversary Edition teaches how to test and amend soil, how to make compost, the proper way to water plants, the parts of a flower, the origin and history of roses, the benefits of birds and bees, plus the good and bad of insects. When Mary Frances decides to have a garden party, instruction is provided in planning ahead to entertain a group, develop a meal plan, and coordinate time-sensitive tasks. Further instruction includes plans for a tiny herb garden complete with tips for the use of herbs in cooking.

One day, not long ago, Sir Jasper Gowlings was happily minding his own business when he was startled by a powerful gust of wind th...at blew his front door clean off its hinges. Standing on his doorstep was a bizarre, wizened old hag wrapped in a moldy, moth-eaten cloak that smelled strangely of wet dog and split pea soup. Seconds later, Sir Jasper found himself in possession of an ancient, rotting book of magical and portentous tales and a terrifying letter that ordered him to share the contents of the book with the world-or else. Sir Jasper slowly turned the crumbling pages and began reading the tales of Cinderella, Rapunzel, Hansel and Gretel, Little Red Riding Hood, and the Three Little Pigs. These were not the old, lying, deceitful tales that once tricked him into believing that only attractive, royal-like people, talking pigs, or poor wee tikes with evil stepmothers could ever find love, joy, and delicious things to eat. Oh no! These tales told the absolute truth, 100 percent, and all of them ended in a manner that curdled Sir Jasper's blood and made his hair stand on end in horror. Be warned. Anyone who chooses to ignore the teachings inside Terrible Tales may find themselves in dreadful danger. Just take it from Sir Jasper who, after turning the last page of the frightful manuscript, knew he must heed its lessons-or pay the price. Fans of dark comedy in the style of Roald Dahl and Lemony Snicket will delight in these wicked alter egos". -ForeWord Clarion Review "Kids and parents alike will chortle at Miserius's lively, pungent prose.
