For her fifth book in the Wicky Wacky Farm Series, author Doreen Slinkard takes Peppi the Polo Pony and Wilby the Kangaroo to China! Wicky Wacky Farm Stories: Peppi Goes to China is a delightful children's story showing how everyone has the need to succeed, though sometimes the ego raises its ugly head. This timely tale tells how two good friends deal with the situation. Peppi and Wilby have been the greatest of friends since the night they met. Peppi was all alone and not doing well at anything he tried, until Wilby introduced himself and taught the pony all the tricks and rules of the game of polo. Under Wilby's guidance, Peppi becomes a champion polo pony, with his friend always at his side. When Peppi was loaned to the Prince of Horsenland to play polo in China, the pony became ill. Lonesome for his best mate, the prince flies Wilby to China in a passenger airplane, first class! En route, Wilby becomes enthralled watching "The Karate Kid" movie and decides to have a go at becoming a karate champion. Peppi is put out by this, thinking that Wilby should support him instead of pursuing his own glory as a champion. See what happens when two friends learn the true meaning of supporting each other. Doreen Slinkard lives at Windermere Farm Wilberforce, outside Sydney, Australia, where she is a horse trainer. Her grandchildren inspire her to write the Wicky Wacky Farm Series.

Book one in the hit series that's soon to be a major motion picture starring Amandla Stenberg and Mandy Moore--now with a stunning new look and an exclusive bonus short story featuring Liam and his brother, Cole. When Ruby woke up on her tenth birthday, something about her had changed. Something alarming enough to make her parents lock her in the garage and call the police. Something that got her sent to Thurmond, a brutal government "rehabilitation camp." She might have survived the mysterious disease that killed most of America's children, but she and the others emerged with something far worse: frightening abilities they cannot control. Now sixteen, Ruby is one of the dangerous ones. But when the truth about Ruby's abilities--the truth she's hidden from everyone, even the camp authorities--comes out, Ruby barely escapes Thurmond with her life. On the run, she joins a group of kids who escaped their own camp: Zu, a young girl haunted by her past; Chubs, a standoffish brainiac; and Liam, their fearless leader, who is falling hard for Ruby. But no matter how much she aches for him, Ruby can't risk getting close. Not after what happened to her parents. While they journey to find the one safe haven left for kids like them--East River--they must evade their determined pursuers, including an organization that will stop at nothing to use Ruby in their fight against the government. But as they get closer to grasping the things they've dreamed of, Ruby will be faced with a terrible choice, one that may mean giving up her only chance at a life worth living.
