This is historical fiction at its best. A blend of past and present tells the story of the Tulsa race riot of 1921. A tied-in mystery keeps the story moving, but it was the history of Greenwood that kept me from putting this book down.

Bad Guys is riotously funny. The first time I read Bad Guys, I seriously couldn’t stop laughing. The “heroes” are animals typically viewed as the villains: Mr. Wolf, Mr. Snake, Mr. Shark, and Mr. Piranha. Sure, they may be accused of eating people – they may even eat each other (I’m looking at you, Snake!) – but it doesn’t mean they’re bad guys. OK, but is it so wrong if the bad guys just wanna be good? Lucky for us, at least three more books are on the way.

On a snowy day, Charles and his toboggan set out to find a wish tree. Their quest is more about the journey than the outcome as they help friends along the way and enjoy the beautiful forest. But as night falls, it looks uncertain as to if they'll ever find what they seek. The lovely text of this luminous book begs to be read aloud over and over again; there's a small bit of magic on every page.
