If you put the Muppets in a theme park and added the heart of Steven Universe and some paranormal energy, you'd get Deadendia. It's an awesome mixture of humor, friendship, self-discovery, and drama with flawed characters you will love as much as your best friends. Heart-warming, heartbreaking, heart-pounding, and heartfelt!

One of my all-time favorites and the perfect tale for a cold winter's night! Edith Pattou retells the Norwegian folktale "East of the Sun, West of the Moon," weaving a wild tale of curses, castles, blizzards, and white bears. (The sequel came out last month--a full 15 years after the first book--and it's just as much fun.)

Why yes, this book is quite fabulous. It has a cute story for kids based on Snow White, except most of the characters are ponies. Bright colors, cute characters, and even some humor adults will appreciate - you can't go wrong.
