Saving Santa's Seals
by T.M. Murphy

When 8-year-old Ryder asks Santa to help his Uncle Ted overcome writer's block and create another amazing story, he cannot know that they'll both be getting the best present ever--a wild adventure. But is it real, or just a wonderful Christmas dream?

"A fresh addition to the Christmas title list. Murphy is in tune with his 8-year-old self, able to capture the excitement, adventure, and feelings of childhood and the magic of Christmas. His tale of twists and turns, actions and dilemmas, is told as if he'd lived it...Perhaps he did!" --Martha Zschock, author of Journey Around Cape Cod

La bell'America
by Anthony M. Graziano

A picture of Europe's 19th century and the massive immigration of Italians to America...the author writes of wars and conflicts, of popes and kings fighting the people's demands for democratic government and throwing the world into bloody conflicts that virtually destroyed Europe. Caught up were the poverty stricken, powerless common people who became the immigrants, pushed from Europe and pulled to America. Their history is made alive through the author's account of his family--their immigration to America from Italy, their survival through poverty, prejudice, and the Great Depression, to their ultimate success and intense loyalty to their adopted land, La bell'America.

"A sweeping narrative of European and American history, and lovingly crafted reminiscence." --Joan M. Crouse, PhD, author of The Homeless Transients in the Great Depression
