Free sample

The world of the Magic Westinheimer is growing by the moment. Laurel and her enchanted piano have accidently summoned a maniacal leprechaun named Mayhem. He steals her songbook which acts as a road map to magical realms and uses it to go on the ultimate crime spree that spans from the South American kingdom of gold, El Dorado, to the tombs of Ancient Egypt, to the distant future. Luckily, all of Laurel's friends are willing to help stop the leprechaun from his rampage. Tatanka is back, the time-shifting guardian cat who lives nine different lives at once. Daff, the work-a-holic fairy from the Black Forest and Houdini, the rhyming ferret are along for the ride as well. And last, but typically least, Kurt Westinheimer, the bumbling and clueless magician lends a helping hand.

Even with the aid of her friends, Laurel is outmatched at every turn because Mayhem is ruthless, cunning, and lives by almost no rules. He is armed with a bad temper, bad body odor, and a magic fiddle that causes as much trouble as Laurel's enchanted piano. Hold on tight for more fun, laughs, and action as the story truly begins to heat-up in this fast-paced adventure.

The Magic Westinheimer series is great for young readers, but it best when read aloud. It is packed with rhymes, songs, comedy, and tongue twisters that make your family's story time as magical as it should be.

A surprise awaits Laurel and her parents when they move into their new Lakeland, Florida home. Tucked away in a storage shed behind the house is an antique piano. The instrument is promptly promised to Laurel as an early present for her 10th birthday. Initially, she’s less than thrilled with the development. After all, accepting the gift means her parents will likely pressure her into continuing piano lessons--a chore Laurel thought she’d left behind in North Carolina. But when an impromptu concert throws the neighborhood into chaos, Laurel discovers that the piano is enchanted. Along with a talking cat, Tatanka, and her ferret, Houdini, Laurel uses the instrument to transport herself across time and space, including into magical realms. She learns about the piano’s history through her travels and connects with Daff, a fast-talking fairy. But as Laurel learns more about the piano’s past, she’s also exposed to the dangers posed by the extraordinary instrument. Can she use magic to right past wrongs? Or will the piano’s powers fall into the hands of evil forces? The story is told in four parts. Early in the book, Sedona introduces readers to the German woodcutter who crafted the piano in 1888 and to a 20th century magician who previously used the instrument in his act. But it’s not until Laurel arrives on the scene that the story truly begins to take shape, and oh, what a tale. Laurel imaginative and independent, embarks on action-packed adventures. Sedona’s writing style will especially appeal to young readers: puns abound, several characters speak in rhyme, and the tale offers plenty of shenanigans. A modern-day fairy tale about a time traveling heroine told with heart and humor.

-Kirkus Review

From the highly acclaimed, multiple award-winning Anthony Doerr, the beautiful, stunningly ambitious instant New York Times bestseller about a blind French girl and a German boy whose paths collide in occupied France as both try to survive the devastation of World War II.

Marie-Laure lives with her father in Paris near the Museum of Natural History, where he works as the master of its thousands of locks. When she is six, Marie-Laure goes blind and her father builds a perfect miniature of their neighborhood so she can memorize it by touch and navigate her way home. When she is twelve, the Nazis occupy Paris and father and daughter flee to the walled citadel of Saint-Malo, where Marie-Laure’s reclusive great-uncle lives in a tall house by the sea. With them they carry what might be the museum’s most valuable and dangerous jewel.

In a mining town in Germany, the orphan Werner grows up with his younger sister, enchanted by a crude radio they find. Werner becomes an expert at building and fixing these crucial new instruments, a talent that wins him a place at a brutal academy for Hitler Youth, then a special assignment to track the resistance. More and more aware of the human cost of his intelligence, Werner travels through the heart of the war and, finally, into Saint-Malo, where his story and Marie-Laure’s converge.

Doerr’s “stunning sense of physical detail and gorgeous metaphors” (San Francisco Chronicle) are dazzling. Deftly interweaving the lives of Marie-Laure and Werner, he illuminates the ways, against all odds, people try to be good to one another. Ten years in the writing, a National Book Award finalist, All the Light We Cannot See is a magnificent, deeply moving novel from a writer “whose sentences never fail to thrill” (Los Angeles Times).
