The Mad
Women’s Ball

Trees have starred in stories ever since Ovid described the nymph Daphne’s metamorphosis into a laurel, and the landscape of literature has long been enlivened by wild woodlands, sacred groves, and fertile orchards... the sheer range of stories in these pages will leave readers refreshed and dazzled.

New Picture Book
Negative Cat
