Hello: my name is English Bradshaw and I have just published a seven-series volume of books for juvenile readers and younger availabe on which will share the adventures of a little orphaned boy and his upbringing in an orphanage and his relationships with the animals he adopted as friends. The bokks are titled: Charlie'sBANTAMS, Charlie'sMULE, Charlie'sDUCKS, Charlie'sFRIENDS, Charlie'sROBINS, The Chain of Love, and The Magic Lamp. The first book Charlie'sRobins reaches many themes. It begins with showing the importance of playtime and playmates in the lives of children. It is also a story about discovery and gives a wonderful picture of the interaction between children and Nature. The story moves to give a deeper message by using a family of robins to show the importance of the roles of parents in the lives of children. It gives the readers opportunities to stretch their minds as they picture themselves as members of the robin family. It also portrays the loving care the boys give to the family of robins while they learn responsibility and bonding of new friendships through their experience of losing a member of the robin family Other themes involve overcoming anger with thoughts of goodness, responsibility, and freedom.

I didn't see the Eragon series mentioned. My kids, boys ages 10 and 12, love that series. Eragon is the first book, followed by Eldest, and then Brisingr. It's a magical series about dragons, written by Christopher Paolini. I read somewhere that he began writing Eragon when he was in his teens.

Try reading a new book by Yvonne Gabriel, Chico, The Polar Bear. The illustrations are gorgeous. I especially like the rich text. Chico, the strongest bear on the Pole, gets tired of the cold and decides to go to the beach. He boards a plane and ends up having his fur shaved off so he can get a tan and feel the water on his bare skin. He has a great time, but finally has to return to the Pole. Excited about meeting his friends, they laugh at him without his fur. Sad, he turns away and almost dies in the snow with his beach towel wrapped around him for warmth. Then a little girl . . .
Small children will enjoy having this book read to them. Older children will enjoy reading it themselves. The entire family can enjoy reading and discussing it together.

Jimmy Stone's Ghost Town is "A Fantastical Mystery for Young Readers" and it's a fun read for only $0.99!

"This spooky tale is told with Scott Neumyer's trademark wit and insight. Ghost towns are fraught with danger, but Neumyer makes them irresistibly appealing with the help of Jimmy Stone." - Lara Zielin, author of DONUT DAYS and THE IMPLOSION OF AGGIE WINCHESTER

Jimmy Stone's Ghost Town
- A Fantastical Mystery for Young Readers -

For Jimmy Stone, life in "Boredsylvania" has been pretty tough. His mom's died, his dad's completely checked out, and he spends his days running from the Coogan Boys, the local bullies. It isn't long, however, before "Boredsylvania" gets a lot more exciting. With his new friend, David and his dog, Trex, by his side, Jimmy discovers that the woods beyond his backyard hold the key to a world he could never even imagine. Soon, he ends up in Ghost Town, where he's greeted by his ghost guide, Gasp, and receives an ominous prophecy.

"Seven things you must find.
One thing for each day.
Seven things you must find.
Or else they all will pay!

Suddenly Ghost Town becomes as scary as it sounds, and Jimmy Stone realizes that he's in way over his head.

I hope you enjoy it!
