  • Witch Hazel by author MOLLY IDLEAvailable with bookplates that feature original art while supplies last! Something magical happens when Hazel and Hilda are together. As the seasons pass, Hazel’s broom whisks the dust off many years of joyful memories, and young Hilda watches them come to life. But is it magic making memories...or are memories making magic?

  • Rock That Vote by author MEG FLEMING and artist LUCY RUTH CUMMINSFins, paws, wings, or claws?
