The Wild World


Handbook: Habitats
How Adventurers, Artists, Scientists—
and You—Can Protect the Earth

By Andrea Debbink

Climate change is a defining issue of our lifetime, but research shows


that awe is a more powerful motivator for action than fear. With
that idea in mind, The Wild World Handbook: Habitats offers a guide
to environmental stewardship and the diverse habitats we call home.

Inside middle grade readers will find inspiration, actionable advice,


and tales of adventure and optimism about people whose encoun-
ters with nature prompted them to act on its behalf. Each chapter
explores a different habitat—Mountain, Forest, Grassland, Desert,
Rainforest, Freshwater, Ocean, Arctic, and Cities—and includes
stories of environmental stewardship, creative activities to engage
with the natural world, and bios of diverse outdoor adventurers,
scientists, and artists. Kids will discover that no matter where they
live or how they engage with nature, they have the ability to make
positive change in their world.

This is the first book in a new series, with a handbook on wildlife


to follow.

Whisper Down the Lane
A Novel

By Clay McLeod Chapman

Richard doesn’t have a past. For him, there is only the present: a
new marriage to Tamara, a first chance at fatherhood to her son
Elijah, a quiet but pleasant life as an art teacher at Elijah’s elemen-
tary school, and the dream of becoming a real artist someday. Then
the body of a rabbit, ritualistically murdered, appears on the school
playground with a birthday card for Richard tucked underneath.
Richard doesn’t have a birthday, but Sean does.

Sean is a six-year-old boy in 1980s Virginia. His father has just


walked out and his mother is juggling multiple jobs while living on
food stamps. Meanwhile, all the grown-ups in his life seem worried.
Cult leaders, serial killers, and stranger danger is on the rise, with
moral crusaders and televangelists stoking the fires of panic. In this
pressure cooker environment, Sean’s school sends a note to parents
alerting them that a teacher is under investigation. Sean likes Mr.
Woodhouse, but when his mother asks if the bruises caused by the
school bully were really caused by Mr. Woodhouse, a few small lies
spiral into a terrible tragedy. Now, thirty years later, those lies have
come back to haunt Richard: someone knows who he really is—and
they’re out for revenge.

Inspired by the McMartin preschool trial and the Satanic Panic of


the ’80s, this novel from the critically praised author of The Remaking
delivers a nuanced portrait of parenthood and mass hysteria.

CLAY MCLEOD CHAPMAN is the creator of


the storytelling session “The Pumpkin Pie Show”
