Anna has done something terrible. She has given me her journal to fill. In Anna′s journal the words walk across the page like bird prints in the mud. But it is hard for me. It is hard for me to find things to write about. "It′s your job now," Anna says as she hands Caleb her journals, asking him to continue writing the family story. But Sarah, Jacob, Anna, Caleb, and their new little sister, Cassie, have already formed a family, and Caleb fears there will be nothing left to write about. But that is before Cassie discovers a mysterious old man in the barn and everything changes. Everyone is excited about the arrival of a new family member except for Jacob, who holds a bitter grudge. Only the special love of Caleb, and the gift he offers, can help to mend the pain of the past. Caleb′s Story continues the saga begun by the Newbery Medal-winning Sarah, Plain And Tall and its sequel, Skylark, spinning a tale of love, forgiveness, and the ties that bind a family together.

Brimming with vivid historical detail, King Tut and the Girl Who Loved Him is a thrilling tale of a modern teenager catapulted into the glory and intrigue of Egypt's 18th Dynasty. Johanna Wilson is a quick-thinking fifteen-year-old with a penchant for falling into trouble and digging her way out again. After a rough day at school, Johanna comes home, eager for a nice, relaxing evening. But while reading a book on ancient Egypt, she's suddenly "misplaced" from her apartment in twenty-first century Miami to Egypt's 18th Dynasty. A few strange twists of fate later, Johanna is masquerading as Princess Johenaten, cousin to Pharaoh Tutankhamun and member of Egypt's royal family. Completely dependent on the pharaoh for her safety and comfort, she also knows from her high school history class that the king will die soon. And when he does, her life will be in jeopardy. Johanna's search for answers to the pharaoh's fate takes her on a dangerous journey into the inner circle of the most powerful kingdom on Earth. Surrounded by treachery and deceit, Johanna vows to uncover the threat to Pharaoh Tutankhamun's life, scarcely realizing how her actions will change the lives of those around her-and the course of history.

Forcefully written and meticulously researched, Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee inspired a generation to take a second look at how the West was won.

In Snowflakes Fall, Newbery Medalist Patricia MacLachlan and award-winning artist Steven Kellogg portray life’s natural cycle: its beauty, its joy, and its sorrow. Together, the words and pictures offer the promise of renewal that can be found in our lives—snowflakes fall, and return again as raindrops so that flowers can grow. MacLachlan and Kellogg, who are longtime friends, were moved to collaborate on a message of hope for children and their families following the tragic events in Sandy Hook, Connecticut, on December 14, 2012. Kellogg lived in Sandy Hook for thirty-five years—he raised his family there and was an active member of the community. With Snowflakes Fall, they have created a truly inspiring picture book that is both a celebration of life and a tribute to the qualities that make each individual unique. In honor of the community of Sandy Hook and Newtown, Random House, the publisher of Snowflakes Fall, has made a donation to the Sandy Hook School Support Fund. Random House is also donating 25,000 new books to the national literacy organization First Book in the community’s honor and in support of children everywhere. From the Hardcover edition.
