Today, we’re excited to share with you another one of our sneak peek blog posts. Take a look below for a preview of the books that will be coming your way soon—and as always, enjoy!

The champion of the destitute and downtrodden rides again! Robin Hood (available as a large format gift book and paperback chapter book), written by David Calcutt and illustrated by Kate Greenaway Medal-winning artist Grahame Baker-Smith, shares with readers the story of how the adventures of this famous outlaw became the stuff of legend.

“A 21st century classic where author and artist have woven their individual magic to breathe new life into the popular story of the world’s most famous outlaw” – World Robin Hood Society

“Sure to attract new followers for a perennially popular hero” – Kirkus (starred review)

In The Adventures of Achilles (available in hardback with CD and paperback chapter book), authors Hugh Lupton and Daniel Morden retell the Iliad in wonderful prose reminiscent of Homer’s classic itself. Artist Carole Henaff’s illustrations are true to ancient style, but give it an exciting and modern twist.

“Epic in deed and scope … this retelling of the Iliad will rivet both readers and listening audiences” – Kirkus (starred review)

Help the animals in The Tortoise’s Gift (ages 6+) discover the secret name of a tree which magically produces fruit as you enjoy this first book in our new Animal Stories series. Scottish author Lari Don retells this Zambian folk tale, which features bright, beautiful illustrations by Melanie Williamson.

In Never Trust a Tiger (ages 6+), the second book in the Animal Stories series, a merchant helps a tiger climb out of a hole…only to have the tiger try to eat him! The merchant doesn’t think this is fair—but who is right?
