Twist combines the vicious monsters from the stories written by Eli with the gentle creatures inhabiting the houses drawn by Neha . The story is a funny and at times a terrifying romp with a highly imaginative plot. Elementary students will find this an engaging story.  One of our young readers described it as: "complex, diverse, and a story that gets intense very fast!"

Thank you for supporting Kids Ink and Sarah Cannon.

Kids Ink's a Bookstore Against Borders

7/16 UPDATE: Throughout July 4th weekend, donates and 10% of all sales were to be donated to RAICES thanks to A Room of One's Own bookstore in Madison, WI and their online fundraiser Bookstores Without Borders. We've finished checking the math, and thanks to all of you we raised a total of $657.05 - well beyond our initial goal of $500! This money contributes to the grand total of the #BookstoresAgainstBorders campaign, whose goal was $50,000, and ended with $83,100!

"Finding Orion" Just Got Easier

The stars have always been a symbol of endless possibilities - ancestors looking down on us, ancient explosions circled by planets of their own, navigational tools where no other landmark's to be seen. Rion Kwirk was named for a constellation, and his quest to unravel the mysteries of his grandfather is the latest novel by John David Anderson and available for pre-order now: Finding Orion!
