Otter B Free is the ninth book in a series of children's books intended to teach young children basic biblical character traits. In Free, Otter B and his friends are practicing for the Fourth of July Field Day when they learn that Felicia the fox broke her leg and won't be able to compete. At first Otter B is excited by his chances at winning the Field Day trophy, but a conversation with Daddy about our God-given freedoms gives Otter B an idea: Instead of trying to win by himself, Otter B and his friends work as a team to earn the trophy. Otter B learns that true freedom includes choosing to help, love, and care about others.

The Sea Walks into a Wall
A biting new collection by award-winning poet Anne Kennedy.In The Sea Walks into a Wall, the natural world around us hits back.The sea crashes its glass onto the bar.You watch from afar.You'd take it all back if you could. Everything.You'd go down there and you'd.And talks back too.If I'm fucked,you're coming with me.Sincerely,the stream.From rainy Ihumatao to London's Kew Gardens, in the face of seas and streams, ducks and dogs, black drops and bureaucracies, humans bumble through.Without distractions you'd rush through your life like chi through an empty room.You bump into a baby and that takes up eighteen years.Love fills the room like a maze.Intelligent, playful, witty and innovative, these poems bite where it hurts.

My Addicted Family

My Addicted Family
While living her perfect life, Anne Kennedy came face-to-face with a grim reality: all four of her gifted, glorious children were drug- and alcohol-dependent. In the 1960s and 1970s, addiction's dark ages, she kept the skeletons in the closet. Now Kennedy breaks her silence about the "family illness," which flourished in a false suburban utopia and a justice system that criminalized addicts. She writes of the ultimate loss, her oldest daughter, and the healing roads that restored life for everyone else. Kennedy's story, written in short memoiric bursts, delivers two messages: someone precious is inside every addict and no family, anywhere, is perfect.
