In the first of the Babymouse series, our heroine, Babymouse, is just a typical middle schooler who wants to be liked - and be queen of the world. What she'd settle for is to be included in the popular kids' clique, ruled by Felicia Furrypaws. Felicia is just about to send out invitations to the social event of the season: her slumber party. As Babymouse's imagination helps her deal with the possibility of being excluded, she becomes a private-eye, an astronaut, and a cowgirl. At last the invitations arrive and ...yes! She is invited, but going will mean forsaking her loyal friend, Wilson Weasel. What will she do? Jennifer Holm is the Newbery Honor-winning author of Our Only May Amelia and other titles.

'Basho and the River Stones' by Tim Myers is a story based on the teachings of one of Japan's most revered poets, Matsuo Basho. Through the antics of a greedy fox, Matsuo introduces us to his unique form of poetry, a haiku. He also teaches us that the simple beauties of the world, give our lives 'radiance'. Enjoy this gentle story of generosity and friendship.
