An island psychic suggests she find a piece of sea glass for meditation and it will help her find her inner strength. Poppy experiences everything from the birth of new puppies to the death of a well-loved cat. Is it the glass or the people on the island she encounters that brings about the change within her?

With his fantastical imagination, Tony Diterlizzi makes reading fun and appealing with his references to future technologies and using his characters to enhance the meaning of life. The main character is a human, Eva Ninee, 12 or 13, who has lived underground her entire life and has been cared for by a robot named Muthr (Multi-Utility Task Help Robot). They live in an undrground Sanctuary but are forced to flee after a huntsman destroys the Sanctuary. Once she is above ground, she meets some unlikely friends and journeys out across Orbana in search of other humans. Many challenges confront Eva Nine and Muthr, expecially the huntsman. (Won't he ever go away?) This book is the first of a series of three. Can't wait for the next one!

This tale of a non-funny jester, a talking Buffalope, and a Golmiran Captain very small in stature is spiced with humor from start to finish. The trio encounter brigands,lupers, an evil King, and it all revolves around Kerin, a lovely princess who will become Queen in one year. However, her Uncle has no intention of giving up the throne and devises plot after plot to ensure Kerin will not take her rightful place as Queen. Sebastion's adventures continue in Sebastian Darke: Prince of Pirates.
