In 2011 St. Clair Publications introduced the Emma Lynn Children’s Book Division. The first one was a delightful 370 page novel for young teens titled The Fortold Child of Flame by Christin Grant and Amberlea RIncan.
This entriguing tale takes young readers back to the medieval days of castles, wicked kings, dragons and fairy-like creatures. There is only one hope to save the land; a prophecy has fortold the coming of a young princess with special powers who will overcome the evil powers and rescue her generation.
Then came Gemini’s Galaxy by Katy O. Ishee, author of Pieces of My Heart, the shocking highly-aclaimed story of triumph over domination and abuse to fulfil her life-long dream of finding her lost son which has been endorsed by top-name entertiners and authors. Gemini’s Galaxy is a fully-illustrated colorful story for children of a baby bear with twin spirits who also overcomes all odds to accomplish things thought impossible. The product of cooperation of five professional persons from around the globe, it is well worth the read for all ages.
This year we will release two intriguing new Emma Lynn Children’s Books: The Peabodys: Icky’s Big Adventure, by Robijo, will be the first in a series of Peabodys Color Illustrated Adventures.
The Peabodys are a diverse family, living with their humans. There is the Mother (Willow, a dachshund mix), the Dad, Chico (a Chihuahua), their children Icky (Icarus) and Piper, Old Uncle Wicket (a miniature poodle) and their adopted member Spooky (a polydactyl cat). The actual daily lives of this little family is nothing less than humorous, but very much like that of a human family. Each of these individuals have such a developed and unique personality that they honestly seem human. Using the concerns facing children today, placed in the context of the Peabodys, Robijo tells stories of encouragement, hope and inspiration.
The other will be Prince Henry St. Clair, Earl of Orkney.
The book, by talented British faerie artist, Hazel Brown, is based on history and legends. Set in 1398, is centered around Haakon, a bright young boy whose grandfather has just returned from an exciting voyage to a mysterious new land with Sir Henry St. Clair. He and his mother live on the Isle of Orkney, where Jarl Henry is the ruler. Writen in true British style and fully illustrated with remarkable original art, this book will keep a pre-teen to young teen hypnotized as they follow the mysteries that Haakon and his cousins discover. This book is set to release in October, 2012.
I am very proud of our children’s books. You will be too when you get them for your children and grandchildren.
