Special Feature

Dragons! People all over the world tell stories about dragons. Many of us are fascinated by the great lizard-like creatures that can fly and blow fire. Some dragons are fearsome predators that enjoy a tasty human morsel every so often. Others are friendly creatures that humans form close bonds with. In this collection of book titles, readers of all ages are sure to find a title or two (or more) that will interest them.

Seasonal Feature

In November and December autumn shifts into winter. During these months we get serious about bundling up in warm clothes, toasting ourselves in front of warm fires and wood stoves, and finding ways to spend really wet or cold days. I actually really look forward to this time of year as I enjoy sitting under a warm blanket reading a book. What could be better? Take a look at these wintery volumes and enjoy.
