“Christopher Timothy, who played James Herriot on the BBC version of ALL CREATURES GREAT AND SMALL, recreates a variety of rich Yorkshire accents impeccably… Each character has a distinct voice and personality… Masterfully narrated, this is a joy to listen to.” — AudioFile

“These eight stories, read by Jim Dale in the voice of Herriot, recount the illnesses, surprises, and puzzles surrounding the cows, pigs, cats and working sheep dogs found on many English farms… He also captures all the kindness of the beloved Herriot in this collection for animal lovers of all ages.” — AudioFile on JAMES HERRIOT’S TREASURY FOR CHILDREN

“James Herriot… is one of those rare men who know how to appreciate the ordinary… A natural storyteller.” — The New York Times

BREAKAWAY by Kat Spears|
From the author of the YALSA 2015 Best Fiction for Young Adults pick, SWAY (now available in trade paperback), comes a new novel that asks the question: when a group of four best friends begins to drift apart, what will it take to bring them back together? It’s received two starred reviews, including this one from Booklist: “A painfully honest and powerful depiction of the changing nature of friendships in the face of hardship and an exploration of what it means ‘to be human and alive.’”

DREAM THINGS TRUE by Marie Marquardt
A modern-day Romeo and Juliet story in which a wealthy Southern boy falls in love with an undocumented Mexican girl and together face their hostile Georgia town. “Readers seeking a star-crossed love story with a twist won’t be disappointed.” — Publishers Weekly

THE WEIGHT OF FEATHERS by Anna-Marie McLemore
The Night Circus meets Romeo and Juliet in this stunning young adult novel about two teens from rival traveling performer families who fall in love despite the almost impossible odds against them. “McLemore’s prose is ethereal and beguiling… The enchanting setup and the forbidden romance that blooms…will quickly draw readers in, along with the steady unspooling of the families’ history and mutual suspicions in this promising first novel.” — Publishers Weekly
