With the help of a young monk and a legendary Grisha Squaller, Nikolai will journey to the places in Ravka where the deepest magic survives to vanquish the terrible legacy inside him. He will risk everything to save his country and himself. But some secrets aren’t meant to stay buried—and some wounds aren’t meant to heal.

Michael Hewes & Sarah Hewes with THE TEMPESTUOUS TRIAL OF MAYBELLINE MERIWEATHER

Saturday, December 1, 2018 - 10:00am

Maybelline Meriweather has been put on trial for the most heinous of crimes--stealing an egg from another bird's nest! Maybelline, without a doubt one of the most colorful citizens of the town of Avian Mile, finds herself in a difficult spot as the accused and, after consulting with the Mockingbirds, retains renowned Atticus Peck to take her case. A riveting courtroom drama ensues, rich with revelations, cross-examinations, and flighty admissions. In the end, justice is served, and Maybelline is finally-with much joy and fanfare-able to explain the curious behavior that first marked her as a suspect. Told in alliterative style and referencing more than fifty fascinating and beautifully illustrated bird species, Maybelline's tale is one to be enjoyed by readers of all ages-feathered or not. Written by Michael Hewes and Illustrated by Sarah Hewes.

About the Author
