The Woodsman is the story of Amos, Keeper of the Forest for King Charles the First, who by some strange alchemy finds himself shockingly stranded in the 21st century. Whether he can return to his own time four hundred ago, largely depends on the ingenuity and resourcefulness of three furry heroes; a free-spirited hound, a food-obsessed cat and his very bossy, opinionated sister. The friends set out to find a window through time and send Amos back 400 years to his own time amidst the English Civil War, often with hilarious consequences. Their trials and tribulations in amongst a world of ghosts and ancient trees spirits, with a smattering of quirky and sometimes sinister characters, is utterly captivating. Folklore and legend invisibly entwine with the here and now to create a heart-warming tale of everyday magic and adventure where, deep in the ancient woods, time can stand still.

For true believers only, a lavishly illustrated reproduction of a legendary volume by the world's most distinguished dragonologist. Don't let it fall into the wrong hands
Do you believe in dragons? Now, for the first time, the long-lost research of renowned nineteenth century dragonologist Dr. Ernest Drake is presented in all its eccentric glory, happily bridging the gap between dragon legend and fact. The meticulous Dr. Drake assigns Latin names to various dragon species, ruminates on why dragons are able to speak, speculates on how they could fly, and explains the true purpose of their notorious hoarding habits. Here are just a few of DRAGONOLOGY'S fascinating features:
-- Novelty item on every spread, including tactile samples of dragon wings, dragon scales, and dragon skin
-- Booklet of dragon riddles (indispensable to the burgeoning dragonologist)
-- Sealed envelope containing a powerful dragon-calling spell
-- Embossed faux leather cover with silver foil, encrusted with three dragon gems
In his afterword, Dr. Drake reveals that one of the crucial goals of dragonologists is to preserve the magnificent creatures of their study wherever possible - a goal this tongue-in-cheek volume most affectionately achieves. An incomparable gift for secret dragonologists everywhere

Ian Wallace, one of Canada's best-known children's book creators, invites us to look inside his cabinet of curiosities, which contains treasures from his decades of traveling the country from sea to sea to sea, sharing stories with young readers. Over the past forty years, Ian Wallace has made thousands of school and library visits in tiny communities, towns and huge cities all across this land. Some of these visits have inspired young readers to become artists themselves; others have moved children to speak or act in new ways; others have simply given rise to the laughter and sheer delight that come from a good book. In return, Ian has been the recipient of many gifts himself, from the wide range of experiences he has had to the mementos made by young children or artists in the communities he has visited. All these gifts come together in his cabinet of curiosities - an eclectic and personal collection that nonetheless represents and appreciates our rich and varied land. Each double-page illustration shows a shelf in the cabinet dedicated to a province or territory with the gifts or special memories Ian has from that place - tamarack geese made by Cree artists in northern Ontario, a fishing-stage facade from Newfoundland, the giant redwoods in Cathedral Grove on Vancouver Island, and much more. Always experimenting with new techniques, Ian has illustrated the entire book in delicate graphite pencil, achieving stunning light and shadow. This is a beautiful and unusual contribution to Canada's 150th birthday. Includes an introduction and notes on the illustrations.
