Viking Books for Young Readers. 2016

Aberdeen never meant to leave the yard in the first place. BUT a balloon floated by and.... He is suddenly off on an unexpected adventure! Before long, Aberdeen follows his whims and fancy to unknown territory, a little too far away from home - and from mama.

Who doesn't know the feeling of one thing leading to another leading to another - until you're not quite sure how you ended up where you did? Aberdeen's adorable antics will have readers excited to see where he lands next, and on the edges of their seats as he searches for a way back home.

If Snowflakes Tasted Like Fruitcake
ISBN: 1499801807

little bee books. 2016

A rhyming winter-themed book full of delicious snowflakes!

If snowflakes tasted like sugar plums . . .

they’d be dancing in my head.

If snowflakes tasted like oatmeal . . .

they would get me out of bed.

What if snowflakes tasted like oatmeal, honey, cocoa, gingerbread, or fruitcake? Filled with imaginative scenes of what it would be like if snowflakes tasted differently, such as: if they tasted like honey, we wouldn't need bees if they tasted like plump figs, we would shake it off the trees if they tasted like chestnuts, we would roast them by the fire if they tasted like soup, we would slurp them for fun and more! But since they taste like winter, we catch them on our tongues!
