About a Book - The Fledgling

Georgie Hall wishes she could fly. Everyone knows Georgie's kind of a dreamy girl, but no one expects she will actually get her wish when she befriends a wild goose stopping over with his flock. Georgie loves her Goose Prince, brings him presents, and the Goose Prince shows her how to fly. Flying is dangerous, though - especially when there are people in town like Mr. Preek who has his sight set on hunting Georgie's Goose Prince.

A Newbery Honor Book, Jane Langton's fantasty The Fledgling is a wonderful story for any day, and a perfect story for a day in fall.

About a Book - Midnight Blue

Midnight Blue is a captivating tale that weaves fantasy and reality together. It is the story of Bonnie, who runs away from home and her evil grandmother ("Grandbag") by way of a mysterious hot air balloon. The magical balloon ride lands her in another world which strangely parallels her own, only much more loving and beautiful. That is, until evil Grandmother Marvell enters the picture...

This is a strange and beautiful story. If you like fantasy or books with both fantastic and realistic elements (think: A Wrinkle in Time), try reading Midnight Blue. Miss Parry highly recommends!
