At the Door
Adapted and Illustrated by Maly M. Kiendl, Based on a Children's Story Book by Katherine M. Yates At the Door is a beautifully illustrated story about Loxalillya, a little girl who has a dream. Her guide in Dreamland is an elf. He takes her to Folkstown. There she meets a boy who is a doorkeeper. As in all dreams, things are not what they seem to be. The boys house is his mind. The people going in and out of the house are his thoughts. Loxalillya wants to be the doorkeeper and talks the elf into making it happen. Everything goes wrong, and she is overwhelmed by her responsibilities untilthe elf tells her a secret. ABOUT THE AUTHOR My loves in life are children, animals, and nature (not necessarily in that order). Combine that with my passion for drawing (which I have had since the age of ten, when I won my first art award), and you have the perfect ingredients to be inspired by an obscure Victorian childrens book writer, Katherine M. Yates. I feel strongly that childrens books should be as enjoyable for adults to read as they are for children to hear and see. Many of my most pleasant memories from my childhood are the different stories read to me by adults. (2007, paperback, 34 pages) Availability: Usually ships in 2-3 business days.
