Molly didn't know what to say after all that, so she just didn't say anything, which was probably the best course. The old woman put the poem back in her pocket and in its place came up with a silver needle and a spool of gold thread, which she handed to Molly. ''Thank you,'' Molly said, but to tell the truth she was a little disappointed. She was hoping for something more useful. ''Is that all?'' she asked ''That and this,'' the old woman replied, and before anybody could stop her she began to recite another poem: Gold and silver, sun and sea / Love and courage set them free. And then she was gone. And so Molly went on her way, ever closer to the ogre's dark den. And she found it the only way she could, by falling in it herself.

This was terrible! Mary Beth Boggs is looking forward to starting fifth grade at Sang Branch Elementary School... until Tina Higglethorpe walks through the door. Mary Beth knows from experience that where Tina goes, trouble nearly always follows. When an accident sends Tina's guardian to the hospital, Mary Beth is shocked to find out that, not only is Tina a distant cousin, she's moving in! This is a middle school chapter book that takes place in the Kentucky Highlands, but has a universal message of acceptance and the power of kindness. "Holy Cow! When Miss Hensley writes about life in the fifth grade at Sang Branch Elementary, it is like YOU ARE REALLY THERE - when the girls form a secret club, when Ralph throws up in science lab, and whenever there's trouble, which usually has SOMETHING to do with Tina Higglethorpe... You'll love it! Cross my heart." - Anne Shelby, author of the Adventures of Molly Whuppie and Other Appalachian Folktales "TERRIBLE TINA is a remarkable story about an unlikely friendship and the power of kindness. I won't soon forget strong, compassionate Mary Beth and tough, smart Tina, nor their adventures in this beautifully wrought novel that sings with a palpable sense of place and Hensley's keen insights and wisdom. This is a book with a powerful message that all ages will love." - Silas House, author of Clay's Quilt and many other literary works

Playing hopscotch in the schoolyard or hide-and-seek in the woods, Appalachian children once recited traditional nursery rhymes from memory. As kids do, they frequently altered the original rhymes, making them even more colorful in the process. In Mommy Goose: Rhymes from the Mountains, author Mike Norris honors this special piece of American heritage with a one-of-a-kind collection of fifty original nursery rhymes celebrating Appalachian tradition and speech. Illustrated with art-quality photographs of more than one hundred new hand-carved and -painted works by renowned folk artist Minnie Adkins, this enchanting book introduces readers of all ages to the whimsical world of Mommy Goose and shares her love of the rare music of Appalachian speech and of words in general. Mommy Goose is designed to engage young children with a series of simple and often humorous verses that gradually become more challenging as the book progresses. Readers can advance to longer, more complex rhymes as their skills develop -- at home or with the guidance of teachers. Featuring sheet music for the original song "Tell me, Mommy Goose," this multidimensional book is certain to entertain while introducing a new generation to hallowed folk traditions.
