Michelle Knudsen

No roaring allowed. That's the only stipulation Miss Merriweather the librarian places on her unusual new visitor at storytime: a lion. He turns out to be a model patron, “doing things without being asked. He dusted the encyclopedias. He licked the envelopes.” But a thorny dilemma arises when Miss Merriweather falls and injures her arm: Should the lion break the rules and roar for help?

Fran Manushkin

Little, flat Sonny Shivers and his family only know it’s cold and dark where they live, and whenever the earth quakes, a monstrous hand, reaching forth in a great flash of light, snatches away part of their landscape — Buttery Cliffs, towering Mt. Ketchup… and with the landscape goes his family, one by one, until only Sonny is left to face the monsters. Who are they? What and where is the Shivers family?
