You've heard tell of a long-ago city infested with rats. The Grand Duke of this place had commanded every grown-up to work night and day in his factories, and every child to take part in shooing the rats away from the monuments. But what you haven't heard is the tale of Peterkin the elf, a poor but cheerful fellow who had recently received the gift of a magical pipe. No, this isn't the pied piper you're imagining, a selfish and unforgiving man. This piper will work happy miracles before he resumes his journey. Open our book and see for yourself. Here's the Pied Piper tale reimagined as only beloved storyteller Steven Kellogg could: whimsical, friendly, and full of glorious surprises--an unabashed statement about the transformative power of generosity and love.
In Snowflakes Fall, Newbery Medalist Patricia MacLachlan and award-winning artist Steven Kellogg portray life's natural cycle: its beauty, its joy, and its sorrow. Together, the words and pictures offer the promise of renewal that can be found in our lives--snowflakes fall, and return again as raindrops so that flowers can grow. MacLachlan and Kellogg, who are longtime friends, were moved to collaborate on a message of hope for children and their families following the tragic events in Sandy Hook, Connecticut, on December 14, 2012. Kellogg lived in Sandy Hook for thirty-five years--he raised his family there and was an active member of the community. With Snowflakes Fall, they have created a truly inspiring picture book that is both a celebration of life and a tribute to the qualities that make each individual unique. In honor of the community of Sandy Hook and Newtown, Random House, the publisher of Snowflakes Fall, has made a donation to the Sandy Hook School Support Fund. Random House is also donating 25,000 new books to the national literacy organization First Book in the community's honor and in support of children everywhere. From the Hardcover edition.
