Caldecott Medalist Jerry Pinkney has illustrated more than 100 children's picture books. He is definitely one of the most gifted illustrators working today. His retelling of this familiar tale introduces a new character who allows the troll to experience word bullying from another perspective, giving the story has a satisfying ending as the troll has the chance to learn his lesson. Pinkney's illustrations are stunningly rich and detailed. No child's library is complete without at least one of Pinkney's books.
Jo and Allison were fortunate enough to meet young
adult author John Green at a bookstore convention.
We also have leveled readers and beginning chapter books for when it’s time to move past picture books. Older elementary school students will find a wide variety of fiction, fantasy, mystery and non-fiction books. A separate area contains books for teens. We are happy to support our local schools by hosting field trips to the bookstore, offering a discount to teachers, giving a special rate to students on required books and assisting schools in arranging author visits. If you’d like to purchase a book for a child in your life but don’t know what to choose, we would be happy to help you consider the best options
