13 Treasures: A great tale for those who like adventures with a pinch of fairy dust. Thirteen-year-old Tanya is always blamed when trouble happens—maybe because it’s created by the magical creatures that only she can see. What she stumbles into on the grounds of her Grandmother’s estate may solve her problems or be the end of her. You’ll stay up late to find out which. Ages 8-12. Coming out in March 2010.
