Where the sidewalk ends, your next journey begins... ... in this lighthearted, humorous and inspirational poetry collection for young people and adults alike (Recommended age, 12 and up.) The award winning author of "Sofa Boy" and "The Question" exposes and celebrates the "celestial joke that is life" through a hearty helping of creatively-penned observations and hand-drawn sketches in the universally appealing style of Shel Silverstein and Dr. Seuss. No brain-breaking John Milton "Paradise Lost" marathon poems here - just short, light verse as easy to engulf as "popcorn chicken". These are poems that make grown men cry (or giggle) and still feel like a man in the morning. They'll also make you smile, smirk, cringe, ponder the nature of things, roll your eyes, call your mother, hug a child, kiss a dog, skip through the woods... and long for all sorts of life affirming and joyous things! Poems you'll love to learn by heart and annoy others by reciting verbatim! But don't just take our word for it. Take a look at what these poetry "experts" have to say: "The pretentious title aside, the work is not without merit. It's surprisingly bearable at times." - Poetry Snob Monthly. "Our hometown boy done real good!" - Midwest Hick Times. "Wow. Talk about having your finger on the pulse of the human condition. This dude's a modern day Sophocles - and that's no exaggeration!" - Exaggeration Press. "Why is it anyone with a rhyming dictionary thinks he can be a poet?" Enough already!" - Some Jerkhole Blogger. "It's VERY Shel Silverstein. Almost TOO Shel Silverstein, if you know what I mean... " - Shel Silverstein Fan Club. So there you have it. If you long for an original and amusingly moving poetry collection to make you feel nostalgic for a lifetime of heartfelt memories, look no further. That light in the attic will be you... nestling into bed for a quiet read with a nice cup of cocoa to warm you down to your toes before floating off to dreamland. Scroll up... and start your journey with a click... -------------------------------------------------------------- About The Author: Scott J.

Description:

In this light-hearted and action-packed adventure for all ages, Gabriella Caprella, a young mouse with a singing voice like an angel, travels from her home in 1912 New York City to beautiful Venice to claim her inheritance as the new Contessa d'Asiago. With the help of her friend, the bat Mercurio, she fends off persistent suitors, nasty relatives, bloodthirsty vampires, and would-be usurpers, while learning to be a contessa worthy of House d'Asiago and pursuing her dream to sing at Il Gran Teatro La Sala, Venice's most famous opera house. Gabriella's life becomes even more complicated when she discovers her friendship with Mercurio, son and heir of King Icaruso--sworn enemy of earthbound creatures (aka "grounders") and of House d'Asiago especially, is deeper and more confusing than she'd imagined. With danger lurking behind every wall and rafter, and the seemingly hopeless rift between the grounders and bats of Venice, will Gabriella and Mercurio survive to help heal the City? Or will they wind up floaters on the Grand Canal?

OVER 2 MILLION COPIES SOLD--Double-gold medalist begins simply in baby sea turtle's voice:"I'm coming Mama, I'll see you soon, I know just how, I'll follow the moon." Celebrating the love between mother and child comes an achingly beautiful story that has captured hearts around the world. Written by a new mom, by accident, when she sang a little song to her fussing newborn, I'll follow the moon donates to charity: every book saves a turtle. [G]orgeous watercolors chronicle the journey of a baby sea turtle from its hatching to its first swim in the sea." --Kirkus Reviews"[C]aptivates children with poetry... " --New York Times "[A] tiny one-inch hatchling teaches the world about courage... utterly magnificent... " --San Francisco Chronicle "[B]aby turtle wins hearts everywhere, expect your kids to hug you tight after the first read... expect to be asked to read again and again and again... " --USA Today "[I]'m coming Mama, I'll see you soon, I know just how, I'll follow the moon... we can't get baby turtle's song out of our heads... achingly sweet little bedtime book for weeones." --Huffington Post "[N]o surprise at all that this book has a worldwide toddler-cult following... baby turtle serenades us all so sweetly with his song of home. Proceeds to turtle charities too!" --National Geographic "[H]ats off to this turtle hatchling who has garnered millions of fans across the planet... a tiny activist who is saving his own kind... bravo." --World Wildlife Fund "[S]tephanie Lisa Tara and Canadian illustrator Lee Edward Fodi have teamed up to create a lyrical rendition of a green sea turtle's first glimpse of life. Hatched on a moon-washed beach, the baby turtle finds its way b yinstinct across the expanse of sand to the sea and a rendezvous with its mother. Written in simple verse in the first person, the rhythmic text is full of action and sensory detail and loaded with alliteration and onomatopoeia for an enjoyable read-aloud. The refrain, "I'm coming, Mama... ," repeated on each double page spread, is soothing and reassuring of the joyful reunion to come. The atmosphere of a quiet but determined struggle to break free of the egg soon gives way to growing excitement as the turtle mingles with fellow hatchlings and catches his first tempting sensations: the smell of salt air, the sight of the moon's glow, the gentle touch and beckoning sounds of the waves rushing to shore. Once he's free of the land, new motions take over: gulp, spin, float, swim... The final happy refrain is new and satisfying: "I'm here, Mama - here with you. I know I'd find you, Moon did too. "[F]ramed by endpapers of soft, limitless, under seagreen, Fodi's delightful illustrations feature an animated and engaging baby emerging from an egg buried in golden sand. With other tiny turtles, he is shown plowing through the damp sand, sampling the salty sea air and marching unerringly toward the moonlight glimmer, his guide to the ocean. Once afloat, he soon comes face to face with "eyes like mine" in his new watery home. The gold of sand, blue of sky and green of the sea repeated throughout the book bring a sense of harmony. The turtle is the focal point of all the pictures. The illustrator has carefully integrated the turtle's actions with Tara's verse which relies heavily on verbs: roll, slide, tumble... crawl, scoop, shove. Young children will be propelled through the story in the illustrations as well as the text." *Highly Recommended. Gillian Richardson, who lives in BC, is a former teacher-librarian and freelance writer. --Canadian Materials Magazine, Gillian Richardson "[I]n this tranquil bedtime story, a baby sea turtle hatches on the beach and wants to find his mother. And he knows just how -- he'll follow the moon! From his gentle struggles to break free of his egg to his determination to dig his way out of the sand nest, we follow the baby sea turtle on each step of his instinctive journey home." Very highly recommended. --Books of Wonder
