Petit Jean: A Wilderness Adventure

by Gary Zaboly William B. Jones

Petit Jean Mountain, a dramatic promontory in the Arkansas River Valley, owes its name to a legend that has endured for centuries. Marguerite, a young Parisian lady disguised as a cabin boy, accompanies her fiancé on a voyage to the New World to redeem the land grant he has earned in service to the king. Hiding in plain sight as Petit Jean ( Little John ), she proves herself more than capable of the demands of the journey. Drawing on variants of the legend, William B. Jones sets his fictional narrative in the French Colonial era during the reign of Louis XV. Taking his reader on a journey across the Atlantic, through Louisiana Territory, to a beloved natural landmark, Jones spins a tale of mistaken identity, love, and adventure.

If I Weren't Me: A Menagerie in Poetry

by Hal Evans

If I weren't me What else would I be? It's a universal question that we all wrestle with, particularly as children. And it provides creative fodder for poetry teacher Hal Evans, who brings the sensibilities of Ogden Nash and Shel Silverstein, illuminated with zany mashups by illustrator Kevin Pope. Leading the reader through a poetic menagerie in which our narrator tries on different guises, Evans' puns and brays and marches his way through a language-arts fun house, adopting stances ranging from droll to comical to clever. As they engage in Evans' infectiously zany wordplay, kids respond in kind, blissfully unaware that they are absorbing poetic structure, form, and technique.

Crisanta Knight: Book 3 In The Crisanta Knight Series: Inherent Fate (Crisanta Knight Ser. #3)

by Geanna Culbertson

I had learned a lot in the last couple of days. I’d figured out how to defeat a fairytale villain with a Toyota 4Runner, how to surf on furniture (à la Aladdin and his magic carpet), and how to confront my wicked step-grandmother. But these bizarre lessons were only just the beginning. If I was to overcome the obstacles in my path, I had plenty of learning left to do—about myself, and about my enemies. Between Nadia the queen of villains, and the leader of the Fairy Godmothers, I was in for a lot of trouble in this final phase of our quest to alter our fates. Separated from our friends, Daniel and I had to work together to traverse the kingdom of Alderon and evade the antagonists who were trying to destroy us. Moreover, we had to do it while figuring out whether or not we could truly be friends. Not an easy sell when I was prophesized to put an end to his girlfriend. Can you say awkward? With our mission drawing to a close, my significance to Nadia, my relationship with Natalie Poole, and my magical power were about to be revealed. But among these great truths, little did I know I was on the verge of discovering a strength that would be infinitely more powerful—one that had been inside me all along. . .

Crisanta Knight: Into the Gray (the Crisanta Knight Series #7)

by Geanna Culbertson

Maybe the gray was not where people went to get lost. Maybe it was the perfect place to be reborn. For in that gray was the potential to be anything, to become anyone.Returning to protagonist school had confronted me with a mixed bag of change. Some things were good. I was a star athlete on my Twenty-Three Skidd team, my friends and I were closer than ever, I'd made amends with my traditionalist headmistress, and the surprisingly kind grandson of King Midas was doing his best to win my affection.Other changes, however, were not so sweet. The greater realm now knew about my Pure Magic, and an upcoming trial by the realm higher-ups and Fairy Godmothers would decide my fate. My former princess archenemy was under a sleeping curse, which meant we couldn’t access the vital memories of a dead Fairy Godmother stored in her brain. The commons rebellion in our realm was only growing in strength. And I . . . Well, I'd taken my first life. The antagonist queen's careful planning paired with my hard-to-control powers of life had caused me to snap and kill someone. He'd been a villain, yes, but that didn't placate my morality. Especially given the ongoing internal war I struggled with over my abilities and their potential.As I fought to be a strong hero, princess, and more importantly person, I was flogged by the many questions posed by enemies, friends, and my own conscience about how I was changing—and what I was changing into.Would my magic inevitably corrupt me like the antagonists wanted and our realm's higher-ups feared? My personal fate aside, would my friends and I be able to stop the antagonists from taking over our realm? And finally, was I more afraid of not being powerful enough to stop them, or being even more powerful than anybody anticipated?

Crisanta Knight: Midnight Law (the Crisanta Knight Series #8)

by Geanna Culbertson

SJMy best friend Crisanta Knight is quite good at storytelling—the sass, hyperbole, quick description of action. But I am not her, so I will be bringing my own voice to the table. While she went to Dreamland to wake a prince and princess from a sleeping curse, I stayed in Book to broker peace between the commons and our realm’s higher-ups—a choice I was confident in until my friends returned without Crisa. If I had been with them could I have saved her? JasonNormally I had a lot on my to-do list—hero classes, captain my Twenty-Three Skidd team, fighting bad guys. Now there were only three things on my list: 1) Deal with the fact Blue shut me down after I told her about my feelings for her; 2) Respect her viewpoint but also change her perspective; 3) Figure out where the frack Crisa disappeared to and bring her home. DanielI was never sure I deserved to be called a “hero,” but I’d been trying to earn it. My friends needed me to be one. Yet, despite fighting my hardest, I failed and a friend slipped through the cracks. So I didn’t care if I could turn to stone by invoking Midnight Law—if it was my best shot at bringing her home, I would follow the enchantment to Oz, Wonderland, Earth, and wherever else it took me. BlueThings had already gotten complicated when Jason made his… pronouncement. But now Crisa was lost and in danger, our enemies set on forcing her to lose control of her Pure Magic so she’d turn dark and help them conquer our realm. Which meant I had to make sure the two heroes magically able to find her made the right moves, and be willing to shake up the world like a dang salad mixer to keep the peace and save what mattered most.

Grammar for the Well-Trained Mind: A Complete Course For Young Writers, Aspiring Rhetoricians, And Anyone Else Who Needs To Understand How English Works (Grammar for the Well-Trained Mind #0)

by Susan Wise Bauer Amanda Saxon Dean Audrey Anderson Patty Rebne

The Key to the Red Workbook gives clear, thoroughly-explained answers to all exercises in the Red Workbook, the second of four non-sequential books in the Grammar for the Well-Trained Mind series, providing detailed, well-designed exercises in the correct use of English grammar. The Key, along with the accompanying Red Workbook and the Core Instructor Text, make up Grammar for the Well-Trained Mind: a complete course that takes students from basic definitions (“A noun is the name of a person, place, thing, or idea”) through advanced sentence structure and analysis—all the grammar skills needed to write and speak with eloquence and confidence. This innovative program combines the three essential elements of language learning: understanding and memorizing rules (prescriptive teaching), repeated exposure to examples of how those rules are used (descriptive instruction), and practice using those rules in exercises and in writing (practical experience). Each year, parents and teachers go through the dialogue, rules, and examples in the Core Instructor Text; students follow along in the Workbook. This repetition solidifies the concepts, definitions, and examples in the student’s mind. There are four Student Workbooks, one for each year. Each Student Workbook contains the same rules and examples—but four completely different sets of exercises and assignments, allowing students to develop a wide-ranging knowledge of how the rules and examples are put to use in writing. Each Key to the Workbooks provides not only answers, but also explanations for the parent/instructor, and guidance as to when the answers might be ambiguous (as, in English, they often are). All of the rules covered, along with the repeated examples for each, are assembled for ongoing reference in the Comprehensive Handbook of Rules. This will become the student’s indispensable guide to writing through high school, into college and beyond. Step-by-step instruction takes students from the most basic concepts through advanced grammatical concepts such as modal and hortative verbs and multiple functions of noun clauses. Extensive diagramming exercises reinforce the rules and help technical and visual learners to understand and use the English language effectively. Each step of the diagramming process is illustrated and thoroughly explained to the student. Text for examples and exercises are drawn from great works of literature, as well as from well-written nonfiction texts in science, mathematics, and the social sciences. Regular review is built into each year of work. The Key accompanies the second of four non-sequential workbooks, each containing new exercises that allow students to practice and apply the grammar principles under study.
