Stay tuned to our blog for reviews and more information about these great books.


  1. It's so important to draw attention to reading, and attract reluctant readers to it,especially boys. In fact, I've recently completed a feature magazine article on this subject that came out in October, "Help for Struggling, Reluctant Readers."

    I grew up as a reluctant reader, in spite of the fact that my father published over 70 books. Now I write action-adventures & mysteries, especially for tween boys, that avid boy readers and girls enjoy just as much.

    My blog, Books for Boys http://booksandboys.blogspot.com is dedicated to drawing attention to the importance of reading. And my new book, Lost Island Smugglers - first in the Sam Cooper Adventure Series - is coming out in June.

    Keep up your good work.

  2. HI Max,

    Thank you so much for your comments. I agree that it is very important to draw attention to reading. There's so many amazing books out now and being released that will hopefully turn reluctant readers into full fledge readers.

    Thank you for support!

    Congratulations on your 7 books being republished.

  3. I am so looking forward to these books being released. Especially Megan Whelan Turner's!


I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves. ~ Anna Quindlen

Good children's literature appeals not only to
the child in the adult, but to the adult in the child.
