Where Elves Come From

by Santa Claus

With this book, we try to bring a modern twist to the old style of fairy tales when stories had nice, and important morals to learn from. It has many great positive, and self-affirming messages.

Beautifully illustrated, the book, as though written by Santa himself, brings up important fundamental morals for parents to start conversations with their child. In the book we provide easy tools and ideas to teach kids about setting goals, gratitude, always looking for the positive side of things, to have a happy, loving life through strong family bonds, etc. Additionally, the book is divided into 16 chapters, perfect for bedtime stories, and most episodes have one of our favorite bedtime prayers to enjoy together.

This book is also beneficial in confronting sensitive subjects like illness and death, and we all know how curious kids can be about these types of topics. We have a sweet spot in our hearts for kids with cancer, and with our story, we would like to support them by writing this book in a way to make a legend for them, and in a way that our young ones can relate too.

Our story is a heartwarming children’s chapter book that expands on two girls whose friendship forms when the two meet on a playground, and then blossoms as their single parents fall in love and get married. However, their faith is tested when the oldest girl is stricken with cancer, allowing the family to embark on adventures and make long-lasting memories before it is too late. The family will make you laugh and will make you cry, but most of all, they will make you feel good inside for all the small things we should enjoy in life.

With this story, we also encourage kids to use their imagination and their thoughts in a way that can help them find answers to their problems. We have adventures, talking dogs, a magical Christmas Tree, a magic bell and of course a beautiful angel. In the end, as the mystery of where elves come from is revealed, we hope that they will also believe in the power of a little magic! This is probably the most important lesson for kids; to “believe.” If they believe in themselves, they will see that they can have and do anything they want.

Our Mission:

Our mission with this book is to give young children a positive base from which to have a meaningful life. We can determine our kid’s future by helping them evolve through the use of their imagination and creativity. From an early age, we can help children to be compassionate for others, have self-confidence, be enthusiastic, have the courage to act on their beliefs and to succeed in their lives in every way so that they may have a happy, joyful life.

We also want to have this book as a dedication to children with cancer for their spirit and no quit attitudes. We want to make them known and unforgettable, and we want to give them a little hope until someone comes up with the cure to save them all!

Perhaps, along the way, we will also create a legend for Santa’s Elves?

Stone Keeper: Book 1 of the Middengard Sagas

by June Wilson

“The day Alice met the twins her life changed for ever. Not like the day she cut her hair off and hated it. Or even the day her father told her she had to spend six months in Australia. No, this was a big change, a huge change – almost, you could say, an impossible one. Because it was the day she got mixed up in Middengard. The day she stepped into the prophecy. Not that she knew that. Not then.”

Fourteen year-old Alice Morgan is homesick and miserable, out of place with her rich relatives in Melbourne. All she wants to do is return to England and solve the mystery of her mother’s disappearance.

But you should be careful what you wish for. When Alice is unwittingly lured to Melbourne’s Shrine of Remembrance, she finds herself in Middengard, a realm hidden from the world of men and peopled by an ancient warrior race, the Hilderinc. To make matters worse, her cousin Toby and her annoying friend Jess have followed her, putting their own lives in jeopardy.

Placing her trust in the aloof girl-warrior Iris and Iris’s father Stanor, Alice is astonished to learn that the pendant left to her by her mother is one of the Doom Stones, powerful stones needed to protect both Middengard and the world of men from destructive forces.

Soon Alice, Toby and Jess become embroiled in a battle to help the Hilderinc defeat one of their own, a rebel intent on upsetting the balance of power. But how does Alice’s mother fit in? As Alice learns more about Middengard and her part in it, she has to make the hardest choice of her life: rescue her mother or save Toby and Jess.

Vmax: HISTÃ?RIA DE UM PEQUENO CRIME (Portuguese Edition)

by M. A. Bassili

Dizem que a fome aguça a ingenuidade, às vezes o ditado também se cumpre com a falta de carinho e a falta de boa sorte continua. Este ditado tem algo a ver com este livreto.
Essa história é muito curta, mas real como a própria vida. Ele vai lhe contar um segredo, mas você não poderá compartilhá-lo com ninguém. Você pode suportar a pressão de ser o único que sabe como ter um salário sem fazer quase nada?
      Cuidado com esta crítica sutil do atual mercantilismo, porque trará cauda.
      A fraude de que estamos falando é possível. � certamente uma ficção, mas é muito mais do que possível, repetimos.
         Bassili não se resigna a ser um mero escritor descritivo fora de seu tempo. Nesta pequena história, reflete a era atual, seus objetivos malucos e suas modas efêmeras.
Até agora não tinha sido possível mostrar no presente, mas a partir de agora novas surpresas certamente surgirão.
Uma história real de como você pode sentir alguém que foi deslocado desde a infância pela sociedade, e como você pode mudar toda a sua vida – melhor – como resultado de apertar um pequeno cérebro – e também por acaso – e terminar Como um conto de fadas, mas projetado nos tempos modernos.
� uma história muito curta, divertida e autodidata que nos diz passo a passo, embora eles não revelem todos os detalhes de como fazer isso, como contornar os algoritmos e, ao mesmo tempo, nos permite vislumbrar, entre o ridículo e desajeitado que pode tornar-se um mundo de negócios todo-poderoso que nos intimida apenas olhando para nós, porque a sua altura é medida pelo quão seguro e invencível é (ou o que parece ser).
