Banned: A Young Adult Fantasy Adventure (Running Toward Illumia)

by Angel Leya

I couldn’t let my tribe starve… But a unicorn?

Turns out they’re hungry enough to ignore the old warnings, but I can’t live with myself if the curse wipes them out before the famine does.

And even if I could, my parents are leaving me no choice.

But taking their only source of food won’t sit well with the tribe. The old tribe song rings in my ears: Where do the Banned go when home’s no longer home?

I’ve only ever wanted to belong, but I fear protecting those I love will only solidify the feeling that I’m an outsider. A feeling that has haunted me all my life.

Somehow, I need to fix this.

Banned is the expanded part one of Running Toward Illumia, which first appeared in the young adult anthology, That Moment When….

Now I Am Paper (Imaginata Children’s Books Book 2)

by Uvi Poznansky

Written in rhyme, this is a story of longing for a child who has gone on her way and left the old tree behind. It gives voice to love and loss, fear and hope, death and rebirth in a new form, as it is transformed first to pulp and then to paper, the very paper from which the child reads this story. Sensually told, it brings forth the sounds and smells of the forest. 

I remember: a gentler sound, 
The forest rustling in the rain 
Leaves were swirling all around 
I heard soft footsteps up the lane… 

Just like Where the Wild Things Are, here too, the paintings are by the author. She drew the text for each verse by hand, in a font that is as flowery as the tree used to be in its prime. Children would love the highly decorative style of the writing, and the sudden long strokes that express the emotions in this story.If you enjoy Shel Silverstein’s poems, you’ll love this book, because it is written for children of all ages.
