Cierra Martinez presents Somewhere That’s Green

Morgan Hathaway’s love for theatre comes from her grandpa, who taught her everything she knows about the art of acting. Through their close bond, she found her passion and drive for performing. At the age of seven, Morgan met her lifelong best friend, Sebastian Montgomery, when they performed in their first theatre performance. The two became inseparable ever since and acted in every school production together. As they got older, feelings developed, and a budding romance almost began. When Morgan’s grandpa died in a horrible accident soon after, it left her spiraling into a deep depression. She pushed everyone away, including Sebastian. It has been two years since they have talked and now fully recovered from the incident, Morgan realizes the pain she caused by pushing Sebastian away. She wishes she can get her friendship with Sebastian back, but she knows she doesn’t have the courage to do it on her own. In comes Vienna Chamberlain, the new girl at her school. When Vienna comes up with a plan to get Morgan and Sebastian together, Morgan finds herself in the last place she thought she would ever be, auditioning alongside Sebastian in their school’s production of Little Shop of Horrors. But with Vienna’s secrets of her own, can they both fix what they lost?

Mari Ann Fortuna presents Calyxianna’s Night of Fright

Calyxianna's Night of Fright is a tale of a wicked witch named Calyxianna, who lives on the top of a lonely hill with her only companion, a faithful little black bat. Calyxianna has become embittered over the years after being cast out from a coven of good witches. Seeking revenge, she begins to hatch an evil plot which she plans to put into motion on the All Hallows Eve exactly 1,000 years later. This terrible plot aims to kill all the sleeping innocent children of the little town at the base of her hill. But the tree spirits of the nearby Fortuna Forest surrounding Calyxianna's house - and the children's parents, with the aid of a ringing bell in the old monk's tower in the town square - unite to thwart the impending threat. Calyxianna is enraged and retreats to her house and her beloved cauldron followed by the little bat. There is much crashing and howling and the fuming Calyxianna disappears to...where? Only her legend remains.

Anita Moorjani & Keith Malinsky present Scaredy Caterpillar

The world can be a very scary place.
Especially if you are a tiny caterpillar who is literally afraid of her own shadow. That is, until she meets the most incredible, the most beautiful creature she has ever seen. Which inspires her to become who she is truly meant to be, and to live her life fearlessly.

Anita Moorjani, best-selling author of Dying to Be Me, returns to children’s fiction with this wonderful book that not only embraces individuality but also allows children to understand the idea of the soul and that existence continues beyond the physical realm.
