Would John Farrington, an 11-year-old boy, be able to help the beautiful Monarch butterflies complete their migration journey safely? After finding that their original 'safe haven' had been turned into a concrete mini-mall, these beautiful creatures turned to John to guide them to a new location. They needed a place to feed, to rest, and to feel safe. In the story, 'The Prince of Butterflies' by Bruce Coville, John became 'one' with the butterflies and led them to a lush green meadow. This experience changed John's life forever. From that day forward, John dedicated his life to the protection of these magnificent insects. He was instrumental in helping to establish 'The Butterfly Road' legislation that protects the Monarch butterflies during their yearly migration. This up-lifting story of courage and dedication shows how one person's vision made a difference and saved the Monarch butterflies from extinction.

Miri and her family live in a small, poor village on Mount Eskel where almost everyone works in the quarry mining linder stone. Miri's father won't let her work in the quarry, and she thinks it's because she's so small. She would love to prove to him that she's capable, but a decree from the king saying that the prince's new bride will come from Mount Eskel changes her life. All eligible girls must attend an academy to prepare them to be princesses. Then the prince will choose his favorite. Princess Academy is a dreary place run by an unpleasant woman. Miri is happy for the education but dislikes the harsh rules and the competition which develops among the girls. She is not sure whether she would like to be princess or stay on the mountain and continue her growing friendship with Peder. When the lives of the girls at the academy are in danger, it's up to Miri to save them.
