The Evil Witch Sativa has reaped the Great Berry Fields of Evermore and she has stolen all of the precious Evermore berries. These precious berries are very important to the people of Evermore. They are a major staple in their diet, providing vitamins, nutrients and spiritual well being. Without them, the fate of Evermore may be doomed. That is why Larry Longbottom must valiantly lead six of his dearest friends on a perilous journey into the Sativa Mountains to retrieve these berries. Most of them have never ventured beyond the safe borders of Evermore Town. Now they must journey far into the unknown on a most dangerous expedition for the fate of Evermore. Along the way, they eagerly receive help from the legendary Micky Shroom. He gives them helpful advice and special directions through the mysterious backcountry of the Land of Evermore. It is Micky's special directions that help Larry and his friends find the Secret Road, which takes them straight to the Caspian Pass and saves them almost a whole day's journey. Larry and his friends rely on skill, valor and superb teamwork, characteristic of an Evermore. Above all, it is their love for Evermore that drives them onward through this expedition. This important expedition will forever be known as The Great Quest of Evermore.

One morning early in the summer of 1826, I brushed the sweat from my forehead and the flour from my clothes, unrolled my shirt-sleeves to my wrists, donned my coat, and, with never a suspicion that that day was to be unlike any other, calmly walked out into the slanting sunshine. Rain had fallen in the night, and the air was still fresh and cool. Although the clock had but just struck six, I had been at work an hour, and now that my uncle, Seth Upham, had come down to take charge of the store, I was glad that some business discussed the evening before gave me an excuse to go on an errand to the other end of the village. Uncle Seth looked up from his ledger as I passed. "You are prompt to go," said he. "I've scarce got my hat on the peg. Well, the sooner the better, I suppose. Young Mackay's last shipment of oil was of poor quality and color. The rascal needs a good wigging, but the best you can do is tell the old man my opinion of his son's goods. If he gets a notion that we're likely to go down to nine cents a gallon on the next lot, he'll bring the boy to taw, I'll warrant you. Well, be gone. The sooner you go, the sooner you'll come, and we're like to have a busy day." I nodded and went down the steps, but turned again and looked back. As Uncle Seth sat at his desk just inside the door, his bald head showing above the ledgers, he made me think of a pigeon-holed document concerned with matters of trade—weights and measures, and dollars and cents. He was a brisk, abrupt little man, with keen eyes and a thin mouth, and lines that cut at sharp angles into his forehead and drew testy curves around his chin; and in his way he was prominent in the village. Though ours was a community of Yankees, he had the reputation, in which he took great pride, of being an uncommonly sharp hand at a bargain. That it could be a doubtful compliment, he never suspected. He owned property in three towns besides our own village of Topham; he kept a very considerable balance in a Boston bank; he loaned money at interest from one end of the county to the other, and he held shares in two schooners and a bark—not to mention the bustling general store that was the keystone of his prosperity. If anyone had presumed so far as to suggest that a close bargain could be aught but creditable, Uncle Seth would have shot a testy glance at him, with some such comment as, "Pooh! He's drunk or crazy!" And he would then have atoned for any little trickery by his generosity, come Sunday, when the offering was taken at church.

The story of Captain Scott's last Antarctic expedition is one of the greatest adventure stories ever told. Captain Robert Falcon Scott, Lieutenant Henry Bowers, Petty Officer Edgar Evans, Captain Lawrence Oates, and Dr Edward Wilson all died on the return trek from the South Pole, starved and frozen, only eleven miles from a supply camp. In November 1912, a rescue party discovered their last letters and diaries, which told a story of bravery, hardship, and self-sacrifice that shocked the world. Recent decades have seen controversy rage over whether Scott was the last of a line of great Victorian explorers, intent on discovering uncharted lands, or a hopeless incompetent driven by personal ambition. Rejecting the stereotypes, Max Jones reveals a complex figure, a product of the passions and preoccupations of an imperial age. He also shows how heroes are made and manipulated, through a close examination of the unprecedented outpouring of public grief at the news of the death of Scott.

Wesco P McSnaffle lives in the shadow of his Troll-bashing father; Aximus Maximus, as well as his over-achieving older brothers. One day, Wesco's parents decide to lift the boy's spirits by sending him on a highly exaggerated Great Brave Quest...to pick up a loaf of bread. Wesco feels the need to make them proud, and so sets off for the market. On the way, an unfortunate conversation with an annoying, pea-loving Boggart named Peatfingers places Wesco on the wrong path, and before long he is off on an adventure his father would be proud of... The Great Brave Quest is the perfect book for a parent to read to their child at bedtime. It includes both dramatic and humorous use of language and type, and encompasses important subjects, such as friendship across the race divide. It is an epic tale of how having an open mind can take a reluctant hero halfway across the land and back...when all he went for was a loaf of bread.
