    Although people have always regarded Benjamin Franklin as one of the most famous inventors in American history, few people realize that his genius was, in fact, a mouse. Yes, that's right - a mouse named Amos, who found his way to Benjamin Franklin's home one cold night. As one of those closest to Ben, Amos found it necessary to write this (amusing) portrayal of Benjamin Franklin to counter all of the stories written by those who had never even met Ben and certainly never knew that Amos was responsible for a great many of the much esteemed inventions. This classic has been amusing young readers for more than sixty years. 114 pgs. - Melissa

    If you've ever wished you could live forever, this original novel might leave you questioning that wish! When Winnie decides to run away from her overbearing family and her spotless, sterile house, she has no idea she's about to meet a family that accidentally became immortal. No sooner does she stumble on one of the sons (and a handsome one, too) than she is scooped up by the rest of the family and hustled away so they can convince her to keep their horrible secret - and protect the spring that produces this "magic" water from greedy opportunists. When she hears their story - the story of the strange spring, how none of them have aged for a hundred years, and how their immortality is more a curse than a blessing for the poor family, she wants to do everything she can to help them. Unfortunately, a stranger has caught a whiff of the mystery and will do anything to get possession of the woods so he can market this amazing immortality elixir. How can Winnie and the Tuck family protect their secret without everyone in the village finding out? - Jess

    In the same format as Rummy Roots, the goal of More Roots is to extend your mastery of Greek and Latin roots. Use of Rummy Roots is not a prerequisite to using More Roots. As compared to the "flagship" game, More Roots has more Latin than Greek roots, concentrates more on prefixes, and focuses on common "everyday" words as opposed to the original's emphasis on scientific words.

    Two dogs and a cat - three loyal friends. When the animals' owners have to leave for an extended length of time, Luath, Bodger, and Tao go to live with John Longridge until their family returns. During this time John leaves to go and stay at a cabin for two or three weeks with his brother, and his neighbors are going to care for the animals. John leaves on his trip, and the animals, sensing the fact that they are alone, set off for home by instinct. A misunderstanding leads Mrs. Oakes to the belief that he has taken the animals with him, and so she is unaware that the animals are on their own. Luath, the younger dog, is the unspoken leader of the group, leading the other animals straight west and towards home. Bodger is a much older dog, and his already weary body tires fast. Tao, the cat, helps Luath look out for Bodger against the many trials they will face in the open wilderness. Are the three friends up against more than they can handle in their nearly 300 mile journey across the Ironmouth Range in Canada? - Mel
