Book Summary:

Prince Dashing is daring—he bathes in a crocodile-infested moat, he eats while dangling upside down from the tallest trees, and he toasts his s’mores by dragon’s breath. Most of the kingdom looks on in horror, but the prince is about to meet his match. The night of the royal ice cream social, there’s a loud ZING-BOING that comes from outside the palace. A girl walks in holding a pogo stick, but when Dashing demands to see it, she’s already bouncing off across the room to eat her sundae on the nearest tightrope. The party rages on as the prince catches sprinkles on his tongue and the girl balances waffle cones on the tip of her nose. Dashing roller blades across the grand piano; the girl does a backbend and plays “Für Elise” with her toes. At the stroke of bedtime, the girl hurries off—without her stick. A blindfolded Dashing ventures out through groups of thugs and past toothy crocodiles, determined to find the stick’s owner. Many creatures try the stick, but none are able to re-create that perfect ZING-BOING. It’s not until the girl sees FOUND: STICK-THINGY on a poster that she realizes Dashing has her stick, and now she’s off to retrieve it. This Stickerella isn’t waiting around for her Prince Charming, but the two adventurers are destined for a future of fearless fun and friendship.

Book Summary:

When Kate travels to Blade, Oregon, for a quiet week at Aunt Melanie's cottage, her plans are dashed by the discovery of a grove of giant redwood trees in nearby Lost Crater. For thousands of years, no humans have entered the fog-filled crater--except possibly the Halami people, who lived in the region centuries ago before vanishing without a trace. Long a source of deep mystery, the crater is now a source of conflict, pitting those who see it as the dying mill town's last hope against those who see it as a rare sanctuary that should be protected. Caught up in this struggle, Kate follows an old Halami trail into the crater, and suddenly is thrown back in time five hundred years. Accompanied by the trickster Kandeldandel, the loyal Laioni, and the young logger Jody, she meets strange and enigmatic creatures, none more frightening than the volcanic Gashra, bent on destroying everything he cannot control. To defeat him, Kate must find the answer to an ancient riddle--and the courage to make the most difficult choice of her life. In this extraordinary quest, combining high adventure and heroic drama, a girl discovers that all living things are connected in ways she never expected, and that true friendship can reach across cultures, and even across centuries.

Book Summary:

In this children's picture book, discover the tallest tree on earth! It is located in Redwood National Park in northern California and is more than twelve hundred years old and about 380 feet tall—and still climbing! A children's book about how a once tiny seedling, deep in the forest of Redwood National Park, that was protected by the animals and plants that surrounded it, stretched toward the sun to become the tallest known tree on earth. It survived ecological and human threats and flourished for over 1200 years. Logging in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries depleted the coastal redwood population significantly. But the creation of Redwood National Park in 1968 helped to save some of the ancient trees, like this one. The tree was discovered by tall tree scientists in 2006, but in the hopes to keep the tree safe, its exact location is kept secret. Susan Swan’s eye-catching illustrations are made of found objects and hand-painted papers bringing a natural depth and texture to the story. Peppered with impressive facts about trees and extensive backmatter, Pearson proves that every tree has a story to tell.
