OLYMPIANS GN VOL 10 HERMES TALES OF TRICKSTER
(W) George O'Connor (A/CA) George O'Connor
In volume ten of Olympians, George O'Connor delves into the myth of Hermes, the trickster god. From his infancy, when he bewitches animals and bends them to his will (stealing a herd of Apollo's prize cattle in the bargain), to his adolescence and adulthood when he becomes father to the equally mischievous Pan, Hermes's story is wildly entertaining as he brings a little bit of chaos to everything he touches or creates. This volume is sure to be a fan favorite with its wit, charm, and storytelling. Available in softcover and hardcover editions.

LITTLE SID HC PICTURE BOOK
(W) Ian Lendler (A/CA) Xanthe Bouma
A charming and accessible picture-book account of the childhood of the Buddha, when he was still known as Siddhartha. A spoiled young prince, Siddhartha gets everything he ever asked for, until he asks for what can't be given - happiness. Join Little Sid as he sets off on a journey of discovery and encounters mysterious wise-folk, terrifying tigers, and one very annoying mouse. With Lendler's playful prose and Bouma's lyrical artwork, Little Sid thoughtfully weaves traditional Buddhist fables into a kid-friendly new tale of mindfulness, the meaning of life, and an awakening that is as profound today as it was 2,500 years ago.
