Denise Mealy is a former web content provider who stays at home to change diapers and write books. Her days are filled with Word documents, books and sloppy kisses (from dogs and baby alike). She likes to read, cook, dance, travel and forward pictures of spam sculptures to friends. If she could have dinner with any author, dead or alive, it would be a toss up between J.K. Rowling and Jane Austen. They would probably eat pasta. Yes, definitely pasta. For more information, visit: www.dccmealy.com You can also find her on Twitter: @dccmealy



With a diverse and expertly drawn cast of characters, simple and engaging text, and a core story that touches the heart, THE VERY LAST CASTLE is a delight that should not be missed.

There have been a number of Beauty and the Beast retellings, but author Brigid Kemmerer’s dark and progressive take on the classic is unique and exhilarating.

Filled with simplistic illustrations and bold, beautiful colors, these board books are perfect to catch the attention of even the smallest children.

This pair of picture books makes a great set of books perfect for the child getting glasses, or for the classroom. Both are highly recommended.
