death-spiralA young adult novel by Santa Fe author, Janie ChodoshDeath Spiral, published by The Poisoned Pencil, is an edgy tale introducing sixteen year old Faith Flores in Book 1 of a science mystery series. A finalist for the 2016 Eric Hoffner Award, “Death Spiral is a wild ride from start to finish…” says Berger’s Book Reviews. And from Publisher’s Weekly, “Sharp characterization and deft descriptions make this a solid addition to the amateur detective shelf.” Ages 12–up.

In this humorous story for ages 3-7, Hector the Pig hector-spanishdiscovers the rewards of a positive attitude. Hector loves living on the farm but when summer ends, it is time to go. Cheery Hector, however, isn’t worried. A plan is hatched and he heads to the circus, amazing one and all with his juggling act on perfect tiptoes. Beginning readers learn that a good attitude, even when obstacles arise, is always the best plan. Slim, 8 x 8 size and BONUS coloring pages for easy travel and a Fun Way to Learn Spanish in this dual Spanish/English version. Also available in dual language: English/French, and English/Chinese. Written and illustrated by mother/daughter duo Geraldine MacLean and local Santa Fean Nadine Donovan.
