Tom Carr, BLOOD ON THE MITTEN: Before Michigan became a state, there were witch trials, scalp collectors, dirty sports, and a massacre of epic proportions. The lumber era that followed made Michigan as much of a wild, wild west as Deadwood. And Prohibition allowed a group of Detroit thugs to run roughshod over even the likes of Al Capone.
Bill Smith, CHICKADEES AT NIGHT: Where do chickadees go at night? What a story they have to tell! So gather around, one and all, for a flight of fancy into the mysteries of the natural world. Who knew that chickadees were party birds, fun-loving and frisky as flying puppies? Gorgeous illustrations, clever text, and a reverence for the natural world are woven together seamlessly, and resolved into a deeply satisfying conclusion.
A.V. Walters, THE GIFT OF GUYLAINE CLAIRE: When renowned Canadian sculptor, Guylaine Claire, is slain in the cross-fire of a siege between police and a native, splinter faction, her loved ones find themselves in a maelstrom of loss and publicity. They join in a loving embrace of support and comfort. Awaiting her funeral, they gather at the family home to share the stories of Guylaine’s life and the family history that shaped her destiny.
