Skimmer & Birdy - Let's Help Nell
by Carrie Turley
Illustrated by Ryan Law
Skimmer and Birdy are elephant friends
who love to have fun and play.
They giggle and laugh, they sing, and they dance—
until they see Nell pass their way.
Nell’s a giraffe, with a problem so tall,
her friends don’t know quite what to do.
But Skimmer and Birdy never give up.
They show that their friendship is true.
They help her in secret. They don’t ask for praise.
They don’t even want you to tell.
The very best part for Skimmer and Birdy
is the smile they put on Nell.

What If...? A Poppenohna Land Adventure
Written by Carrie Turley
Illustrations by Lara Law
Murray and Apple Blossom are not your average gnomes. Average gnomes stay home.
Tempted by the excitement of adventure, they stumble upon a red plank door nestled into the base of a giant oak tree. There is just one problem — it’s locked. While searching for a way inside, they discover the tree sits on the edge of a magical glade full of surprises and embark on the grandest adventure of their lives. When the protective shield of the glade is breached, they are forced to separate. Murray heads out in search of an unknown beast, armed with nothing but his courage and the magic of his new friends. Apple Blossom stays behind and faces her own challenge — hide everyone! As the fate of the secret glade unfolds, the gnomes each wrestle with secrets of their own. Ones that will change their future forever.
What if Murray finds more than he expects? What if the beast isn’t their biggest problem? And…What if the red plank door reveals the biggest secret of all?
