Tilikum's Dream (book and soundtrack)

by Tracey Lynn Coryell

It is time to set him free! Tilikum has been living in a cement pool since he was about two, when he was ripped from his mother’s side off the coast of Iceland in 1983. Tracey Lynn Coryell joins the Blue Freedom movement to free orcas like Tilikum, and other gorgeous and intelligent sea animals, with this book and music by singer-songwriter Tracey, accompanied by legendary jazz guitarist Larry Coryell. Tilikum’s Dream adds one more voice to the Blue Freedom campaign to give “a voice to the voiceless whales and dolphins who have been captured and forced into a life of captivity, where they are made to endlessly perform tricks or cooperate with swim programs for the profit of marine parks.” (www.bluefreedom.org)

The Crumbles Chronicles: Battle of the Paper Bags

by Laura Scott Schaefer

Narrated by Crumbles himself, Battle of the Paper Bags tells a humorous “tail” about how an insecure rescue pup faces his arch nemesis (well, one of them) - big brown paper bags! But can a nervous pup such as Crumbles really battle the bags and win? Bark along with this hapless hero as he deals with his own identity crisis, his overwhelming fear of everyday objects, and a yearning to have a real super power. Along the way, Crumbles meets Napoleon, a tiny poodle with a big attitude, Chip, a frantic rodent, and Whisper, the wise bunny. Crumbles also shares his amusing Crumbles Code Rules, such as “ I pee on Myself. Deal with it.” and “Don’t Touch My Tail. Ever.” Hilarious but heartwarming, Crumbles shows us that anyone can be a hero. Proceeds benefit local SPCAs.

The Shaman's Dilemma

by Howard Hatton

The exhilaration that Pa-mi had felt earlier had dissipated. Something was wrong. Something indefinable; it gnawed at his bowels. There was a premonition of—bad fortune—no, danger. Yes, that’s what it was: Danger! At that moment, he felt his foot touch a soft spot in the narrow path, and before he could step back onto firm ground he was slipping on his back down the steep rock-covered slope. Shaman Pa-mi is one of the Kopu, a small tribe nestled in the Yunnan mountains. His people face the threat of losing their traditions when an American missionary family comes to Hsinshao; already the village is divided between those who listen to them and those, like him, who reject them. When Pa-mi plans to ambush a Chinese caravan, he injures himself badly. It will take friendship, communication, and understanding across cultural boundaries for the Kopu and the Americans to save him, and ultimately, when the Communists learn of the missionaries’ presence in Hsinshao, in return to save the entire family. Filled with emotion, grace, and the urgency of events unfolding as vividly now as they had in the past, Hatton brings to life an action-packed true story and gives voice to a people otherwise overlooked in history and literature. At the age of two years, Howard Hatton went with his missionary parents and siblings to live in a small tribal village high up in the mountains of Yunnan Province in southwest China. The village of Hsinshao, inhabited by the Kopu tribe, was little Howie’s Shangri-La for four wonderful years. But in 1934, Mao Tse Tung’s army marched north of the village, and a group of Communist soldiers was sent to capture them. Herein lies his story.
