Whether you’re looking for books for yourself or others, this prize-pack of books from Rising Phoenix Press, LLC has something for everyone!
Amanda M. Thrasher brings us a taste of mystery and suspense with The Ghost of Whispering Willow, while her fairies in The Mischief Series take us on fun-loving adventures in the mushroom patch. Jannifer Powelson’s Rachel Raccoon and Sammy Skunk, on the other hand, not only take us on fantastic journeys through nature, but they also teach us about the amazing natural world around us. And then there’s Just Line Around by Kinsy McVay where Stew, an ordinary horizontal line, learns, quite by accident, that there is much more to life than just lying flat. This prize pack also includes a poster print of either the cover art from The Ghost of Whispering Willow orThere’s a Gator Under My Bed! (a new picture book to be released early next year).
