What if every time you made a choice that had a significant consequence, a new, alternate reality was created--the life that would...'ve been had you made the other choice? What if those new realities were in danger? What if it fell to you to save all the realities? Atticus Higginbottom, a.k.a. Tick, is an average thirteen-year-old boy until the day a strange letter arrives in his mailbox. Postmarked from Alaska and cryptically signed with the initials "M.G.," the letter informs Tick that dangerous--perhaps even deadly--events have been set in motion that could result in the destruction of reality itself. M.G. promises to send Tick twelve riddles that will reveal on a certain day, at a certain time, at a certain place, something extraordinary will happen.

Read about how Jacob helps invent the alphabet! Rudyard Kipling wrote the first version of this story in 1902. 111 years later her...e's an updated version, modernized and set in the United States. With reading and writing you can share ideas with people far away from you in time and in place. The updates support beginning reading in several ways: - Easy to read one sentence summaries of every page - A short poem on every page because poems are fun and because rhymes remind one there are sounds smaller than a syllable, and that idea is important in reading English - A question at the bottom of every story page, to help the reader remember to imagine things and to ask questions - Detailed full color picture of the magic alphabet necklace - A new long poem at the end - A description of each letter and how it is used in English Probably, at least at first, a good reader will read the text in small black print. Listening to the story helps build vocabulary and grammar skills. Beginning readers can start to read the story summary, then the poem and the question, and eventually read the whole text, perhaps to someone else! The goal is to help enable competent and enthusiastic readers! Read More

Show description from ABC: <BR><BR>"From the inventive minds of <I style="mso-bidi-font-style: normal">Lost</I> executive producer...s Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis, the show is a bold new imagining of the world where fairy tales and the modern world collide: 28-year-old Emma Swan is shocked when Henry, the son she gave up, shows up on her doorstep after 10 years in desperate need of her help. He believes she actually comes from an alternate world and is Snow White and Prince Charming's missing daughter. According to his book of fairytales, they sent Emma away to protect her from the Evil Queen's curse, which trapped the fairy tale world frozen in time and brought them into our modern world. Emma is skeptical, but when she brings Henry back to his hometown of Storybrook, she is drawn to this boy and his strange story, soon suspecting that the town is more than it seems. It's a place where magic has been forgotten, but is still powerfully close; where fairytale characters are alive, even though they don't remember who they once were. The epic battle for the future of all worlds is beginning, but for good to win, Emma will have to accept her destiny and join the fight."<BR><BR><I style="mso-bidi-font-style: normal">Once Upon a Time</I> has a full 22-episode order that will run through mid-May 2012. It airs on Sunday nights at 8pm and is the #1 new drama.<BR><BR>The book itself will be small and gift-sized, and will feature original illustrations by a fantastic artist named Kevin Tong. Tong worked as an artist on LOST's art campaign and currently does amazing concert posters. His aesthetic is dark and edgy, and lines up nicely with that of the show-exactly what we're going for with these illustrations. For our book, he'll illustrate the cover, six full-page interior pieces to go with the tales featured in both the book and the show (Snow White, Cinderella, Rumplestiltskin, Rapunzel, Red Riding Hood, Sleeping Beauty), and a combination of small, decorative images and borders to adorn the interior pages.
