Image and link to Warlock in DCPL catalog In the fifth installment of this bestselling series, the twins of prophecy have been divided, and the end is finally beginning. We are introduced to new monsters, new Elders, new magic, flying saucers and lots of history on many of the characters. It's fast moving, compelling, and the characters literally jump off of the page. The plot twists and turns at a break-neck pace, but exactly who is on which side can never be guaranteed.

In stock and ready for check-out!

Girl on BirdYou know the story of Rumplestilskin, but do you know about his daughter? You've probably heard fables that teach you a lesson, but what about those stories to which you shouldn't pay any attention? And if you've only heard the pig's side of the "Three Little Pigs," you're missing half the story.

Come listen as Miss Patty tells fairy tales and fables with a twist!

 Tomatoland Do you ever wonder why you can’t find a flavorful tomato in the grocery store, or why they are hard enough to substitute for a baseball? Next time you are in the library, ask for a copy of Tomatoland: How Modern Industrial Agriculture Destroyed Our Most Alluring Fruit by Barry Estabrook.
