Little Mikey is 10 years old and lives with his mom, dad, and sister. His full name is Michael Vincent Harris, but many people call him Little Mikey because, in his first-grade class, there were two Mikeys – one big and one little. Since he was smaller than Big Mikey, his friends started calling him Little Mikey and the other Mikey, Big Mikey. Nearly every day, whether at school, at home, or at play, Little Mikey seems to get himself into some type of mischief or trouble. The mischief and trouble he gets into doesn’t cause anyone to get hurt. He never bullies anyone. He never uses foul language. And he never uses violence to solve problems. But he makes decisions that sometimes cause him to get into trouble with his parents and teachers. When Little Mikey makes a mistake and finds himself in trouble, he knows to follow three steps: 1. Admit that he made the mistake. 2. Apologize. 3. Promise to try not to make the same mistake again. Each school day, his teachers, counselors, and principals remind him and the other kids of those three important steps, which are not intended to punish. Instead, they are intended to help them to become better at resolving conflict and making learning more fun and exciting. Join Little Mikey, his family, and his best friend, Ricardo, in a series of stories about Little Mikey’s daily adventures as a 10-year old kid. Some of the stories will make you laugh and cause you to think that Little Mikey is a really cool kid. When one of his mistakes makes him feel sad, you might even feel sorry for him. Some of the stories might make you ask: What would I have done if I were Little Mikey? Why did Little Mikey do that? What could Little Mikey have done to avoid getting into trouble and mischief?
They just wanted to go back home to be with the other frogs. So, they kept on

"Do you see what I see, Two Buckets? There are thousands of frogs coming to watch me, Phineas T. Barrel III, make Olympic history today." Phineas was the greatest athlete the creatures in the New York State Adirondack Forests had ever seen. He had won five Olympics in a row. Throughout the years, many frogs had won five Olympics but not one had ever won six. Two Buckets Turtle, Phineas's best friend and coach, would drive Phineas to greatness and perhaps a world title. Phineas wanted to be known as the greatest frog who ever lived. He had out-swam, out-jumped, out-harrumphed, and caught more bugs than any frog who had ever competed against him. In fact, no other frog had even come close. Phineas had a simple motto, "No other frog will ever defeat me, ever!" But his challengers had other ideas, even if it meant cheating to defeat him. Follow Phineas on his adventures to seek fame and glory as the best of the best. Would he be able to achieve what no other frog had done before? Would he find that special place to become, Phineas T. Barrel III, the greatest frog who ever lived?

Join a fellow traveler on a walkabout through Paris and London, and then travel with him across England, Scotland and Wales. After those walkabouts, accompany him as he journeys across America and follows the equator to Australia. Finally, wander with him along the corridors of modern and postmodern philosophy, and as he travels with old and new Philosophes, who all voiced an opinion as regards this travel book. It is a book that people won't buy, won't read and won't praise. Mark Twain After reading only a few pages, I gave up the study of philosophy forever. Voltaire I cannot look upon the book without shedding tears. Bertrand Russell If I could only make a travel book like that, I would be perfectly willing to die-even anxious. John Dewey I have seen a great many travel books in my time, but none that this one reminds me of. Will Durant This travel book is one-third fabrication, one-third prevarication and one-third barefaced lies. However, the rest of the book is the unadulterated truth. Dr. Morris A. Nussbaum

With a wholly original voice, this stunning debut novel captures the overwhelming transformation from childhood to adolescence An ordinary suburban Connecticut summer in the seventies is the stage for the miraculous world of Timmy. Twelve years old and full of boundless curiosity, Timmy lives an ever-expanding life of record collections (of which Elton John is king), neighborhood bullies (of whom Franky DiLorenzo rules), best friends, and the darker, more lasting secrets of family. Over the course of the summer, Timmy will kill a frog, lose his baseball-card collection, alienate a friend, and witness his parents' separation. An intruder will hide in his treehouse; his mother will threaten divorce; his father will move out and back in. Timmy's childhood will end and his adolescence begin. One of the most remarkable child narrators to come along in recent years, Timmy is the achievement of a stunning new voice in American fiction. In the Cherry Tree is an addictively clever and appealing novel of our universal coming of age.
