New Releases from Guardian Angel Publishing

Liddil is trying to get her light to come on, but no matter how hard she tries it won’t come on. She learns to take smaller steps, to build herself up. Then she can accomplish anything she sets her mind to.

Frankie Armadillo has too many brothers. His burrow is too crowded, so he sets off in search of the perfect home, just for him. But every place he likes is already occupied, sometimes by fierce looking creatures. Will Frankie find the perfect home?

It’s a chicken! It’s a giraffe! It’s a penguin! It’s my brother? Humor and imagination come together in this entertaining picture book about sibling rivalry. When a boy accidentally changes his brother into different animals, he learns something new about himself and his brother while trying to change him back.

Learning the major muscles in the human body can be a challenge. Bill Kirk’s muscle book is here to help. Written in rhyme and illustrated by Eugene Ruble, it breaks down the body’s muscles into manageable chunks. You’ll be amazed at how fast you will learn them. Factoids, word quests, and glossary, too.

A child duchess, Lady Geyr, must reclaim her heritage after it is stolen by the Red Knight. Can she do it with only the gargoyles of Castle Geyr to help her?
