Madwomen of Meriweather
Original illustrations by Gail E. Haley, winner of the Caldecott and Kate Greenaway Medals. Blanche is snatched from her husband and young child and taken to a state asylum for the insane. Her hopes for rescue are dashed when she discovers her husband Earle had her committed and declared her dead. Has the death of her newborn indeed driven Blanche to madness or is her ordeal part of Earle's plot to steal her inheritance? Blanche's redemption begins with her assignment to organize the new asylum library. At the same time she entertains her fellow inmates with experiences of fabulous meals and winged trips through the air and watches over her small daughter in the consciousness of birds. Are these supportive fantasies or delusions? Or are these experiences real? Earle's dark secrets eventually come to light and Blanche triumphs, but not without a tragedy that costs her a friend and champion. Inspiration for the story comes from the records of a North Carolina insane asylum in the 1920s. Reviews of works by Gail E. Haley: "Dramatic tale of love and its triumph over greed and wickedness. She embroiders rich imagery into both her prose and ... illustrations, which work beautifully with the text." -New York Times Book Review (Birdsong) "lucid, vibrant voice ... use of metaphor, hyperbole and dialect captures the playful spirit of mountain lore. -Publishers Weekly (Mountain Jack Tales) "Compelling story." -Lauren Peterson, Booklist (Two Bad Boys) "The author's prose style, essentially realistic but lightly infused with mysticism, subtly evokes a paradise lost," -Publishers Weekly (Two Bad boys: A Very Old Cherokee Tale)

Imagine that
With the proliferation of visual technologies and the growing interest in media literacy, this book offers educators important new teaching skills. Rich in strategies and activities, it links outstanding children's literature to the development of critical-viewing and critical-thinking skills. Activities show students how to locate, identify, and interpret iconic information contained in illustrations - particularly those in picture books, where illustrations often contain ideas not addressed in the text. Understanding the concepts related to image, text, story setting, content, theme, technique, medium or style, design, composition, and page layout helps students discern pictorial communication in advertising, television, and motion pictures. Well-grounded in research and theory, this work not only offers educators essential training in teaching media literacy skills, it will also appeal to students and faculty in schools of library science and colleges of education.

Mountain Jack Tales
Jack is the universal folk hero and adventurer. Tales of Jack's adventures are as timeless as bedrock but as fresh as dawn in the Appalachian Mountains. Whether besting ogres, outsmarting flatland card sharps, wrestling with ornery witches, or even taking on Old Man Death himself, the plainspoken hero's common sense, goodness and hill-country humor help him come out on top every time. "In a lucid, vibrant voice, Caldecott Medalist Haley recounts stories that originate in the rugged North Carolina Mountain country ... Haley's use of metaphor, hyperbole and dialect captures the playful spirit of mountain lore. Her emotive, elaborate wood engravings, as well as her afterwords about the stories, the art and language itself, enrich this boyant anthology." -Publishers Weekly Haley's "spirited retellings are salted with backwoods language ... and illustrated with wood engravings that are full of energy, comedy and magical creatures." -Kirkus Reviews
