us conductors “DZEEEEOOOoo! Just as hard as it is to make a theremin sing so it is hard to pull off a novel like this. But Sean Michaels does it. Us Conductors bridges body and soul, science and art, and like theremin music, it’s of this world and magical at the same time.” —Ismet Prcic, author of Shards
Blue Heron books pic The unpretentious atmosphere of Blue Heron Books with its comfy chairs, wood shelving and creaky floors lends itself to a long slow, browsing session, but under that sleepy atmosphere vibrates a strong pulse. The store has a quaint, old-fashioned look with an up tempo vibe, because there is always something happening. The store is a hub for the community and a bastion of calm chaos where everyone is welcome, even the local dogs that drop by with their owners for a treat from the tin kept under the front counter. 62 Brock St. W., Uxbridge, Ontario. 905-852-4282

The Blue Heron is a one-of-a-kind bookstore where you are welcomed in by brilliant, warm-hearted, knowledgeable staff. You’ll leave with the exact book your mind and spirit seeks and return again and again. — Sheree Fitch

We Recommend..Tickle Time by Sandra Boynton

Sometimes kids just need a good tickle. Maybe your child is grumpy, or frustrated, or looking for a little extra attention. Well, we have the cure. Reach for Tickle Time!and like magic, everyones bright and sunny and giggling again.Tickle Time! is the twelfth in Boyntons astoundingly successful Boynton on Board series. Based on the wildly popular song from Boyntons wildly popular Rhinoceros Tap CD, Tickle Time! is pure irrepressible Boynton, lively in tempo, nimble in rhyme, and filled with irresistible fuzzy cats that cavort from page to page. Plus a few birds, who arent the cavorting type. Heres a book to turn to again and again, because its guaranteed to elicit giggles:If youre feeling blue and you dont know what to do there is nothing like a TICKLE TIME to make you feel like new.Whether you tickle high or tickle low, tickle fast or tickle slow, its the gitchy-gitchy-goo that makes everything worthwhile.
