#PAPA PICCOLO
http://amzn.com/B008J9X1JG

PAPA PICCOLO was awarded Finalist THORPE MENN AWARD for Literary Excellence, by the American Association of University Women

“It was only a cardboard box, but curious Piccolo poked his nose inside. ‘Why, look!’ exclaimed Piccolo to his old friend Caesar.
‘Kittens! Now why are two kittens alone in a box on a bridge?
Where do you suppose their mother is?’”


“When nighttime came to the canals and narrow streets of Venice and almost everyone went inside and turned on the lights, Piccolo went out.
The dark was full of possibilities. Who knew what Piccolo might find inside that open window? Perhaps a shiny trinket, a dish of cream, or a pretty yellow canary?

Piccolo shows boys and girls about sharing their strength with those who are smaller, younger, or weaker. Caring and nurturing...Piccolo leads a life full of adventure and possibilities. And then two homeless kittens decide to adopt the free-spirited Piccolo. 'I'm not a Papa cat," objects Piccolo. "I'm a tomcat." Children delight in seeing how the kittens help Piccolo discover his own tender heart and a new kind of adventure.

THE SEARCH FOR FOREVER AMBER
https://amzn.com/B014LRVMX6

A mini course in Russian history, amber history, Monuments Men, and the continuing mystery of what actually happened to the original Amber Room in the throes of World War II. All news to the casual observer.


The Mystery unfolds...

While traveling with the Met along the Baltic's Amber Coast en route to St. Petersburg aboard Sea Cloud II use this little Kindle white paper to prep yourself on the story of "Amber."

Even though one wag said to me "Well, Amber is just pine sap, you know," I have to say it is so so much more than pine sap!

Today, stepping inside the Amber Room in the Catherine Palace museum is like slipping into a fairy tale - it's an Aladdin's cave!

Discover for yourself the breathtaking beauty of glowing amber, cut and polished, coming to the light from its lumpy, dark, rough birth.

But as with many fairy tales, especially Russian ones, there is a dark side to the Amber Room too, a shadow of legend and open-ended mystery.

And so we embark together on the search for forever Amber.

DISCOVERING ALVIN A MAN OF MARK AND MYSTERY
http://amzn.com/B018PN1V6U




“The photographic career of Alvin Langdon Coburn appears before our eyes like a brief time exposure through a fast lens.”

He was an amazing modern photographer working a century ahead of his time, inventing cutting edge techniques along the way…all in the first 24 years of his life. Then enjoy a full report of what came after that in the remaining 60 years. It’s an engrossing and fresh story.

Mrs. Marsh’s paper explores the relationship between photography and fine art through the lens of the long forgotten photographer Alvin Langdon Coburn, who was born in 1882, with a nod along the way to the Spencer Art Reference Library and the cult of Freemasonry, and the current heralded fine art photographer Matthew Pillsbury.

#AMAZING MALLIKA
http://amzn.com/B008C9K7OK

PEONIES TO YOU and a big thank you being

the first to re-discover MALLIKA

“My little nieces and nephew loved the full color illustrations and learned from the story about anger management. We were mesmerized by the masterful and full color paintings, there are so many details to look at.”

“Amazingly, marching had made Mallika feel better. Her anger had melted. ‘I’ll never get so angry again,’ she promised. ‘No matter what!’

But that was before the langur monkeys laughed at her.”


Journey to India and discover ways to control a hot temper. Mallika is a little tiger with a temper. When faced with unfair play and teasing Mallika responds with fury. It takes her a while to figure out that being angry is no fun and that a tantrum doesn't make things better.
