Three cousins, Lily, Tess, and Rosie, live with their Aunt Lucy in a pretty blue house on Cobble Street. After school, the girls play in the attic while they wait for Aunt Lucy to come home from her colorful flower shop. One afternoon, the cousins decide to build a dollhouse that looks exactly like Aunt Lucy´s shop. They make a trip to The Olde Craft Shoppe, where they find wonderful things for their dollhouse: tiny furniture and teapots. Won´t Aunt Lucy be surprised when she sees what they have made! Cynthia Rylant, Newbery Award-winning author of A Fine White Dust, the Mr. Putter and Tabby books, and the Henry and Mudge series, has created a gentle chapter book that will enchant young readers. Suzanne Toren´s sunny narration captures each happy moment the cousins share. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Suzanne Toren.

One day Tess was the crown princess of Costenopolie, and the next she discovered she was a beggar´s child, reared as a decoy to keep the real princess safe from assassins. But Tess´ flair for politics, self-defense, and shopping--and her recently discovered magical powers--thwarted the kingdom´s enemies and restored the real princess to the throne. Now she dons an ambassador´s robe to help Costenopolie put its best foot forward--and to keep the newly crowned queen from tripping over her own... Assigned to chaperone Queen Contessa and her new husband on their honeymoon voyage, Tess spends more time playing referee between the temperamental pair. Before another battle royal can erupt, a storm forces the ship to drop anchor where another vessel is similarly stranded--and Tess finds her heart stranded between a roguish cardsharp and a disturbingly attractive army captain. But Tess´ potential suitors are the least of her worries. The crew of the neighboring anchored ship reveal themselves to be pirates and abduct the royal couple for ransom--unaware that Tess´ magic is the real treasure in their midst... 1. Language: English.

It was supposed to be a girls´ weekend in scenic St. George, Utah, that would include shopping, trying out the local cuisine, and participating in a breast cancer fund-raiser. The fact that one of the organizers of the fund-raising event, a local doctor, had disappeared two months before was not supposed to be Sadie Hoffmiller´s problem. When Sadie learns that her friend Caro and Caro´s cousin, Tess, have started a grassroots investigation into Dr. Hendrick´s disappearance, Sadie graciously refuses to be a part of it. With her wedding to plan and her most recent case still fresh in her mind, Sadie is determined to leave this case to the police - until she meets the ex-wife of the missing man. How could she not ask a few questions...that lead to more questions...that lead to a small town and even more questions? When the local police ask her to be their eyes and ears, Sadie can´t help but jump in with both feet. Before she knows it, she is on the rocky road of another investigation and following a convoluted trail of good intentions, hidden motivations, and philanthropy turned big business. 1.
