When Fur and Feather Get Together
by David Margrave
There are picture books that teach; there are picture books about family; and there are picture books that have outstanding illustrations. When Fur and Feather Get Together is a picture book that does all three - embracing the enduring themes of family, fun, learning and visual delight.
Did you know that a sighting of a group of unicorns is so rare that it is called a blessing? When Fur and Feather Get Together is a fun and educational rhyming story about a father and child enjoying their lazy day together. Incorporating the warm and whimsical animal paintings of illustrator Kim Wyly, the father teaches his child what different animal groups are called. Ultimately, it is a book encouraging quality time spent together while leading to further exploration of surprising words and their meanings. This is a book that can be enjoyed equally by families as well as in a teaching environment. Wyly's endearing and relatable illustrations of animals and nature are a perfect complement to the story. Frolicking across the pages of this rhyming picture book are beautifully illustrated foxes, owls, bears, sheep, raccoons, geese, fish, lions, whales, rhinos, monkeys and even unicorns.
The Fisherman's Tomb
by John O'Neill, Sarah Wynne, Katie Clark
A Texas oilman. A brilliant female archaeologist. An unknown world underneath the Vatican.
In 1939, a team of workers beneath the Vatican unearthed an early Christian grave. This surprising discovery launched a secret quest that would last decades — a quest to discover the long-lost burial place of the Apostle Peter.
From earliest times, Christian tradition held that Peter — a lowly fisherman from Galilee, whom Christ made leader of his Church — was executed in Rome by Emperor Nero and buried on Vatican Hill. But his tomb had been lost to history. Now, funded anonymously by a wealthy American, a small army of workers embarked on the dig of a lifetime.
The incredible, sometimes shocking, story of the 75-year search and its key players has never been fully told — until now. The quest would pit one of the 20th century’s most talented archaeologists — a woman — against top Vatican insiders. The Fisherman’s Tomb is a story of the triumph of genius against all odds.

A Cord of Three Strands -
Tully Harper Series Book #3
by Adam Holt
Tully the adventurer, Sunjay the rebel, and Tabitha the spy. Separated by time, space, and circumstances, these three friends are united in their fight against the Ascendant, who have at last achieved their goal...
"We are the Ascendant. We always rise." The Ascendant have claimed the best of the Earth for themselves and made millions into refugees. Some people resist and are now in a struggle to keep the Ascendant from activating a deadly weapon that could obliterate the Earth. And Tully Harper, with all his powers? He is nowhere to be found.
He and his sidekick Little Bacon are a billion miles from Earth, trying to save a hidden civilization on a very real moon in our solar system. If he's ever to return to Earth, he must save the moon as well as himself from "the Gift" of the Lord Ascendant, which is trying to destroy him from the inside out.
Even if he does survive, can he return before the Fourth Horseman is activated?
The entire cast of characters makes a return in A Cord of Three Strands, including Little Bacon, Queen Envy, Gallant Trackman, and an army of Lincoln Sawyers. New characters are introduced, too: Hemlock the Padder, Wonder Most High, Ixion the Black Staff, and the Messenger, whose mysterious origins could turn the tide in in the struggle against the Ascendant.
"Tully's enthusiasm for space travel and commitment to his friends sends this story deep into our solar system. It's a quirky, fun book that also manages to treat space travel seriously." - Col. Jerry Ross, astronaut and author of Becoming a Spacewalker: My Journey to the Stars
