"On an island lives a boy called Peter and his band of merry lost boys, young forever. That is, unless they get sick or killed by pirates or eaten by crocodiles or unless--inexplicably--they grow old. For some of them do grow old, and nobody knows why. One of these boys is called Jamie, and he was the first boy that Peter ever brought to the island. Jamie's lived there for longer than he can remember, and it's not all fun and games.

From the national bestselling author of Alice comes a postapocalyptic take on the perennial classic "Little Red Riding Hood"...about a woman who isn't as defenseless as she seems. It's not safe for anyone alone in the woods. There are predators that come out at night: critters and coyotes, snakes and wolves. But the woman in the red jacket has no choice. Not since the Crisis came, decimated the population, and sent those who survived fleeing into quarantine camps that serve as breeding grounds for death, destruction, and disease. She is just a woman trying not to get killed in a world that doesn't look anything like the one she grew up in, the one that was perfectly sane and normal and boring until three months ago. There are worse threats in the woods than the things that stalk their prey at night. Sometimes, there are men. Men with dark desires, weak wills, and evil intents. Men in uniform with classified information, deadly secrets, and unforgiving orders. And sometimes, just sometimes, there's something worse than all of the horrible people and vicious beasts combined. Red doesn't like to think of herself as a killer, but she isn't about to let herself get eaten up just because she is a woman alone in the woods....

WILL AN ANCIENT LEDGEND WEAVE A YOUNG GIRL'S DESTINY? In a remote mountain village lives Grandmother Atl, a very talented weaver, and her granddaughter, Nemimati. Nemimati wants nothing more than to help her grandmother live a better life, so she convinces her to enter a contest where the winner will receive the title of royal weaver-and get to live in the comfort of the royal palace. Grandmother Atl sends Nemimati and her young friend, Mishtla, to gather the scarce magical beans from which a luminous golden dye can be made. Eventually, the children stop to rest near the ruins of the mysterious palace garden where Goddess Tonantzin's Ghost Tree of legend fortuitously appears and graciously fills their baskets. However, not until the day of the long awaited contest does Nemimati hear the miraculous tree's appearance explained. This mythic tale is set in the pre-Columbian era of legendary Toltec emperor Quetzalcoatl. His legend proclaims him a beneficent sovereign who promoted heartfelt personal sacrifice for one another rather than the religious rite of sacrificed hearts practiced by other rulers. It is also stated that he presented his subjects with wealth and all knowledge.

"For as long as anyone can remember, the children of Isle Labbe have been warned to stay out of the Catahoula Swamp. It was not because of the giant alligators that would love nothing better than to make you their next meal, or the water moccasins that wait with venomous fangs, ready to strike the minute their territory is invaded, but because folks believe that children who enter that swamp never return." Cajun singer-songwriter Yvette Landry's first children's story, The Ghost Tree, calls forth her childhood experiences along the swamps of South Louisiana. The story begins in her ancestral home, the small, somewhat isolated community of Isle Labbé and ends in the swamps of the Atchafalaya Basin. Her grandfather tells her of an ancient Native American legend ... a cursed tree that comes to life every Halloween. Unlucky travelers who stumble across the tree on that fateful night are never seen again. He would know: after all, he's the only one ever to survive an encounter with ... the Ghost Tree.
