Marta is unhappy. For quietly aloof Gregory and his sister Janet, Marta, with her thick Ukrainian accent, her good cooking, and her stories, is the anchor of the house. Mother and Father, both busy architects, are gone all day and sometimes at night. Marta is always there; and the children, sensing her unhappiness, do not want her to go away. When they find out that Marta desires a good place in the kitchen, nine-year-old Gregory, with precocious young Janet in tow, sets out to find her a Ukrainian icon in busy, modern London. Master storyteller Rumer Godden deftly brings to life a portrait of a lonely boy discovering the creative power of love. by Simon Tugwell ISBN 9789867173768

Out Of The Silence
Portrait Of A Monk
The Crows of Pearblossom by Aldous Huxley Mary's Song by Lee Bennett Hopkins and Stephen Alcorn A Sunlit Absence: Silence, Awareness, and Contemplation
Our Price:$16.95
Our Price:$17.00
Our Price:$18.95
Written in 1944 by Aldous Huxley as a Christmas gift for his niece, The Crows of Pearblossom tells the story of Mr. and Mrs. Crow, who live in a cottonwood tree. The hungry Rattlesnake that lives at the bottom of the tree has a nasty habit of stealing Mrs. Crow's eggs before they can hatch, so Mr. Crow and his wise friend, Old Man Owl, devise a sneaky plan to trick him.

This funny story of cleverness triumphing over greed, similar in tone and wit to the work of A. A. Milne, shows a new side of a great writer. Paired with stunning illustrations by Sophie Blackall, this timeless tale is sure to grab the attention of many readers—adults and children alike.
In this peaceful Advent story, the earth bursts with praise at the child's birth---the donkeys bray, the sheep bleat, the horses neigh, and the shepherds file forth with their gifts---but Mary simply wants to be alone. Alone with her sweet babe. When quiet finally falls, Mary cradles her son and sings her mother-song, leaving readers dreaming of that silent night so long ago. With melodic text and rich illustrations, Mary's Song is a lovely reminder of the season's meaning and a welcome pause in the midst of a bustling world. by Martin Laird
