The Angel Knew Papa And The Dog

by Douglas Kaine McKelvey

“This book is a small masterpiece.” –Cynthia Rylant, Newberry Medal Winner.
A “children’s novel for all ages.” The perfect family read-aloud.

Without Mama, life in the log house at the forest’s edge can be lonely for a young girl. But there’s Papa for company, and the two mules, Bartholomew and Thaddeus Frisco, and the big old dog that mysteriously showed up at the end of winter. The girl longs for her mother, but other than that, everything about her little homestead seems right and in its place–that is, until a powerful storm settles over the valley and threatens to take it all away. As the flood waters rise and separate the girl from her papa, will there be anything that can save her?

“The Angel Knew Papa And The Dog” is a lyrically-told tale of a little girl’s faith, personal courage, and amazing survival in the wilderness.



The Queen’s Elements

by H Fowler

When Marlow woke up on the morning of The Choosing she never could have predicted that before the sun set she would go from a peasant, to the most powerful person in the Kingdom, to a rebel on the run.

Marlow and her father live in a two-room shanty in the small village of Pine Brook on the outskirts of the Kingdom of Anariel. On the day of The Choosing, the entire Kingdom gathers to crown the new Queen, who is believed to control the elemental magic in the land. To the shock of the High Priest, and the Grand Prince, Marlow finds herself being crowned the next Queen of Anariel.

The same night she is crowned, Marlow survives an attempt on her life and ends up on the run, leaving behind the palace and Pine Brook, the only home she has over known. The rogue Queen seeks refuge in a rebel camp known as the Wolf’s Den.

Scorned by the rebels for being a “weak” Queen, and exiled from the Kingdom for being a “murderer”, Marlow fits in nowhere. She must find a way to master the four elements of magic in order to return to the palace to save the Kingdom from the Grand Prince, who seeks to drain every last ounce of magic from the land.
