BOOK EXCERPT


Pattie scrambled to the corner of the room, clutching her teddy bear to her chest.
“You’re lying,” she said, her voice shook with fear. “There is no such thing as a Halloween goblin.”
“Yes there is.”
“No, there’s not.”
“Yes there is.”
“When I get to school tomorrow, I am going to ask Mrs. Donaldson.”
“You can’t ask her.”
“Why not.”
“Mrs. Donaldson won’t be back at school until next week. She’s gone on vacation,” Dontae told her, which wasn’t a lie.
His friend, Gio, was in Mrs. Donaldson’s Fire Breathing class. He’d told Dontae that the class was going to have a substitute teacher for the rest of the week because Mrs. Donaldson was taking a mini-vacation.
So there was no way Pattie could ask the teacher if the Halloween goblin was real or not. She could ask her next week. But by then Dontae and his friends would have already had their Halloween fun.
“You’ll have to wait until Mrs. Donaldson comes back before you can ask her,” he told his sister.
“Did she go on vacation because she was afraid the Halloween goblin would come again this year, and she didn’t want to be here when he came?” Pattie asked.
Dontae and Larry nodded their heads yes. Dontae couldn’t believe his sister was really falling for their story. Every dragon knew that goblins weren’t real. Pattie was probably the only one who would fall for something like this. Dontae decided to push her further.
“I’ve heard of the Halloween goblin before too,” he told his sister. “But I never told you about it because I didn’t want to scare you.”
“Why are you telling me now then?”
“Because I needed to warn you. I heard that this year the Halloween goblin is looking for a certain type of dragon to steal from and to eat.”
“W-what type of dragon?”
“This year he only wants little girls.”
Pattie swallowed. “Really? I’m a little girl.”
“I know. But he’s not looking for just any little girl. He wants little dragon girls who love princesses and the color pink.”
“I-I love princesses and the color pink,” she said.
Dontae gave her a sad look. “I know. That’s why I’m telling you. Tomorrow night, when we go trick or treating, make sure you stay next to me. And whatever you do, don’t wear pink and don’t dress up like a princess. Make sure you tell your friends too. I don’t want the Halloween goblin attacking any of you. But if it does, I’ll try to protect you. But he’s bigger and stronger than I am. I may not be able to save you from him.”
“But I’m dressing up as a princess for Halloween,” Pattie cried. “Mama has already made my pink costume and my gold crown. And Kambri is going as a good witch. Her costume is pink, purple and silver. It’s too late for us to get new costumes made.”
Dontae sighed dramatically. “Like I said, I’ll try to protect both of you. Maybe together, Larry and I can defeat the Halloween goblin.”
Pattie didn’t look convinced. “You and Larry cannot defeat a goblin by yourself. You’re only ten. It’s going to eat both of you and then eat Kambri and I. I’m not doing it. I’m not going trick or treating.”
Inside, Dontae was cheering. It worked. His plan to go trick or treating without his sister and her friends had worked. He was happy, until he saw tears begin to spill down Pattie’s cheek.

Book Spotlight: Millicent Marie Is Not My Name

17620184

Twelve-year-old Millicent Marie does not like her name. After all, she was named for a woman who died more than fifty years ago and was not the most loveable member of the Harris family. Her friends call her Millie, but when she writes in her diary she refers to herself as Amanda – the name she always wished she had.

When Millie’s younger brother finds her diary on her computer, he decides to publish it as a blog for the entire world to see, including the boy Millie has a crush on. In the midst of all the mayhem, Millie/Amanda discovers she is suddenly Springside Elementary’s most sought after sixth-grade mystery gossip and advice columnist.

But not all is fun and games, as Millie quickly learns, once she realizes feelings are at stake. Nobody, least of all Millie, expects things to turn out as they do in this tale of friendship and respect.

sopheanti

This book is a collection of three stories about princesses:

1.The Princess of the Winds
Once upon a time, there lived a girl named Windyrella. Her father was the God of the Four Winds: the East wind, the West wind, the North wind and the South wind. When Windyrella was fifteen years old, her father took her away from the kingdom to live in a tower which was guarded by the four winds. She was very sad because she missed her best friend Oberon.
One day, Oberon decided that he would rescue Windyrella from the tower and prove to her father than he was strong enough to protect her. He knew that it would have been impossible for him to defeat the four winds at once. Therefore, he decided to trick them.

2. The Princess and the Butterfly Clip
A princess received a butterfly clip as a family heirloom. It allowed her to see two hours into the future. She grew very attached to it. Her parents became worried about her ability to become a good queen and leader. They then decided to play a trick on her in order to teach her a lesson about the need to rely on her own senses, rather than the butterfly clip.

3. The Princess and The Magical Crayons
A birthday present transports a young girl into a magical world of adventure.

Being a princess is not just about fun and games. Read about how the princesses overcame their challenges and of how they lived happily ever after.
