||Seebo, Donna D.: God's Kiss|
Book Number: 49623
Mrs. Seebo's Classic Fables October, 1993 4to hardcover 32pp near fine. Collector's edition, with sticker on title page stating Firt Run, First Editon, and signed by Donna Seebo. Amazing Illustrations. Gods Kiss beckons all children and the young at heart to enter the dream world of a little traveler named Johnny; an extraordinary world of talking animals, magnificent mountains and valleys. A place where young people gather on Christmas Eve to seek the special kiss of life - God's Kiss. God's Kiss is more than a heart warming tale of a little boy's journey to a mystical land. It is about a child's sense of place in the world; a boy's discovery of how precious life is to all earth's creatures, and the powerful feeling of well being that embraces the reader. These are thoughts and emotions children instinctively understand (and search for), but the real magic of God's Kiss is how these emotions are rekindled in the hearts of adults. The exquisite illustrations of the renowned artist Ed Gedrose, embellish Mrs. Seebo's expressive prose. Johnny's dream comes to life and the reader falls deeper into the fantasy through the stylistic impressions of Mr. Gedrose.

||Oke, Janette: The Bluebird and the Sparrow|
Book Number: 50005
Bethany House Publishers April 1995 8vo softcover 251pp very good. A richly detailed inspirational novel from a prolific writer of Christian fiction. Set in the early 1900s on the Canadian prairie, the story centers on Berta, the older, plain, dependable sister of cheerful, beautiful, affectionate Glenna. From childhood on, Berta feels ignored as pretty Glenna receives most of the attention from family, friends, and especially young men. She develops a protective shell so as not to compete with her sister's limelight. Circumstances and the stress of not revealing her true feelings finally cause the young woman to seek the advice of her minister. Both sisters eventually discuss their feelings and Berta discovers her "true self." Oke presents believable characters in a well-paced story full of insight and common sense. It will be especially appealing to any young adult who feels like a "sparrow" in comparison to the "bluebirds." The religious message does not appear until the later half of the book and could be overpowering to some readers, but the universal message of acceptance of self is this book's strong point.nJudy R. Johnston, Auburn High School, WAnCopyright 1995 Reed Business Information, Inc.nnReviewnThe Bluebird and the Sparrow is the story of two sisters whose lives are set in contrast. As the older sister, Berta Berdette is serious determined, prim, and grows up feeling plain and ordinary (especially when she often compares herself to her sister). Glenna Berdette is sparkling, vivacious, outgoing, and beautiful. Within the family, Berta is depended upon while Glenna is adored. The Bluebird and the Sparrow is a heartwarming story of the sisters' relationships with each other, with family and friends, and eventually with the young man who came calling. Readers will identify closely with both sisters and celebrate they discovery found when personal value is separated from one' physical appearance. -- Midwest Book Review

||Paver, Michelle: Wolf Brother - Chronicles of Ancient Darkness|
Book Number: 49998
Orion Children's Books September 2, 2004 8vo hardcover in d/w. 240pp very good. Maps on end pages. Grade 5-9 - Set 6000 years ago, this fast-paced adventure delves into a world of spirits and mysticism not often seen in children's literature. Torak, 12, witnesses his father's brutal attack by a giant, demon-possessed bear and promises to find his way to the Mountain of the World Spirit. Before dying, his father instructs him to avoid other men and tells him that his guide will find him. Sure enough, Torak is soon adopted by a wolf cub, also recently orphaned, with whom he is able to communicate. The bear continues to terrorize the forest, but Torak is able to avoid it with Wolf's help. They are captured by the Wolf clan, who believes that Torak is the Listener, and will rid the forest of the bear when he fulfills a prophecy by delivering three lost artifacts to the mountain. He must solve an obscure riddle to find the artifacts and traverse dangerous lands, all the while evading the evil bear. Paver's depth of research into the spiritual world of primitive peoples makes this impressive British import, slated to be the first in a six-book series, intriguing and believable.
