The Adventures of Minnie: Minnie Saves the Day

by Melodye Benson Rosales

When Hester Merriweather's father brings her a doll made especially for her by her grandmother, Hester falls in love with it at once. As a young girl living in the Bronzeville section of Chicago in the 1930s, Hester is delighted to have a doll that looks like her and her friends. She puts her doll, Minnie, in her room, and when night falls, Minnie discovers that Hester's toys come to life to talk and play. Surrounded by a wonderful group of characters, Minnie begins to learn all about life among the toys and the Merriweathers, and when Hester's mother thinks an upcoming party is going to be spoiled, Minnie decides to help out. The result is a delicious story that establishes Minnie Merriweather as a character to cherish. Complete with an afterword that examines aspects of the history and culture of Bronzeville in Hester and Minnie's time, this first book in the Minnie Merriweather series establishes a cast of characters young readers will want to visit again and again.

The Adventures of Miss Petitfour

by Anne Michaels

The magical adventures of an eccentric Mary Poppins-esque heroine and her flying feline charges, sure to charm readers big and small. The first book for children by an internationally acclaimed novelist and poet. Miss Petitfour enjoys having adventures that are "just the right size - fitting into a single, magical day." She is an expert at baking and eating fancy iced cakes, and her favorite mode of travel is par avion. On windy days, she takes her sixteen cats out for an airing: Minky, Misty, Taffy, Purrsia, Pirate, Mustard, Moutarde, Hemdela, Earring, Grigorovitch, Clasby, Captain Captain, Captain Catkin, Captain Cothespin, Your Shyness and Sizzles. With the aid of her favorite tea party tablecloth as a makeshift balloon, Miss Petitfour and her charges fly over her village, having many little adventures along the way. Join Miss Petitfour and her equally eccentric felines on five magical outings -- a search for marmalade, to a spring jumble sale, on a quest for "birthday cheddar", the retrieval of a lost rare stamp and as they compete in the village's annual Festooning Festival. A whimsical, beautifully illustrated collection of tales that celebrates language, storytelling and small pleasures, especially the edible kind!
