    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

    Little Pilgrim's Progress maintains all the allegorical messages, characters and places of the original. Helen Taylor wanted a younger audience (elementary and middle school children) to profit from the allegory as much as countless generations of "grown-up" Christians had before them. Accordingly, the language and vocabulary is more accessible and the main character is a young boy rather than a man. See more details on the corresponding Adventure Guide, which examines everything from literary elements to biblical truths found in the book.
