From the back cover

"Grandfather and the Raven" is a delightful collection of life fables. They are distilled wisdom that warms you all the way down."  -- Jean Sullivan

George Polley's Grandfather stories are fables capable of teaching children -- and  not a few adults -- about the value of appreciating all living creatures, of the wisdom of being open-minded enough to seek solutions in unlikely places, of the rewards of working systematically towards your dreams, of the futility of bullying and aggression, and of the reassurance of a loving and harmonious environment in a world which tips all too often toward the arbitrary destruction of war.

As ever, George Polley recounts these near-legends in a voice which lulls and beguiles, and above all nudges us toward the world around us."

Suitable for children, YA and adults. 

Watch for this title to reappear in the Fall of  2014

Bear  looks like a bear, is loveable and loyal, noses out the source of an infestation of giant rats in the neighborhood, and faces down a really mean bully. He also has a quirky sense of humor.

Watch for Bear sometime in the Fall of 2014.
