Prince Martin Wins His Sword

This unforgettable debut embraces the heroic tradition of The Hobbit, The Chronicles of Narnia, and Treasure Island-with a twist: it’s written entirely in rhyming epic verse, making it a thrill to read aloud with a child!

As Prince Martin admires the ancient steel in the castle armory, he longs for a sword of his own. But the King decrees his son must prove himself first. The boy gets his chance when the caw of a crow alerts him to trouble in the forest. From the safety of the trees, he spies four terrifying villains bent on kidnapping an innocent victim! And the only thing standing between predator and prey is a courageous stranger-who could sure use a hand. Armed only with his wood staff and a rock sling, Martin faces the hard choice:

Should he help or go home? The boy had to decide! And just how much help could a mere kid provide?

Featuring stunning full-color illustrations, Prince Martin Wins His Sword is a classic children’s book about a boy prince’s trials and how he learns the true meaning of courage, sacrifice, grit, and friendship.

With a great quest, high-stakes adventure, lovable heroes, and a mesmerizing cadence, this first entry in the new Prince Martin Epic children’s chapter book series is sure to delight!

Tickles Tabitha’s Cancer-tankerous Mommy

“Mommy’s wig was still attached to her head, but she didn’t look so good. The wig-hair stuck out like snarled rat-tails in all directions. There was a crooked horizontal line right where her smile should be. Worst of all, she was in no mood to play Tickles Tabitha.” The award-winning “Tickles Tabitha’s Cancer-tankerous Mommy” was released October 2001, to a national audience on the Rosie O’Donnell Show. Its release helped pioneer resources for families coping with cancer. Diagnosed with breast cancer at age 34, this is the story Amelia Frahm wrote to help explain her cancer diagnosis to her own children. Told through her daughter, Tabitha’s eyes, the book uses candor and comic reality as it acknowledges some of the moody truths faced by families living with cancer. Mom is tired, scared, and hungry. Tabitha is worried; her little brother is making a mess, and Dad is watching the ball game instead of paying attention to Mommy. The book makes no promises about Mommy’s health, but the children are assured that no matter what happens Mommy will always love them.
