  • THE BEES OF NOTRE-DAME

    by Meghan P. Brown (Author) & E. B. Goodale (Illustrator) Year Published: 2023

    High above the bustling streets and gardens of Paris is a little-known wonder: a cluster of beehives. They sit atop the roof of the Notre-Dame cathedral, lovingly tended to by a beekeeper named Sibyle. But when fire broke out in the cathedral in 2019, the bees almost didn’t make it. Firefighters battled heat and smoke, carefully spraying their hoses around the hives, pumping in water from fireboats on the Seine, and, miraculously, they survived.

  • WATCH OUT FOR THE LION!

    by Brooke Hartman (Author) & Anna Subbauer (Illustrator) Year Published: 2023

    Readers beware—there’s a ferocious lion in this book! The book warns that it has seen the lion already. First its bristly tail, then clashing claws, twitchy ears, fearsome fangs… and it’s lying in wait to turn any unsuspecting passerby into a child cheeseburger or rugrat ravioli.

    As a wildfire rages across the Australian landscape, Wombat takes shelter in his burrow far below ground, comfortably sipping tea. When animals appear at his door--Kookaburra, Platypus, Wallaby, Koala, and Sugar Glider--each seeking shelter from the fire, Wombat welcomes them inside. When eventually Wombat's patience wears thin with their presence, Wombat tells them it's time for them to go home. However, one of the guests no longer has a home to return to and Wombat must make a choice about how to help the creature.
