This utterly charming tale relates the story of King Mortimer, a royal plagued by Obsessive Compulsive Disorder who only finds comfort and ease by surrounding himself with the number 5 — be it 5 knights, 5 moats or 5 points on his crown. One day he awakens to find that he has grown a sixth finger! Woe is he! His wizard is quick to suggest a remedy, but not one without risk. In a state of crisis, he takes advice from far and wide on how to achieve this cure. In turn, a jester, a gypsy, a professor and others present plans increasingly unlikely and complex. Driven to despair, epiphany is at last reached — perhaps his condition is not half so bad... Beautifully illustrated in full color and with wonderful rhyming verse, The King's 6th Finger will appeal to all ages.

Kids of all ages - get ready to laugh, smile and tangle!
Sandy Steen Bartholomew's Zentangle for Kidz! is both a fun romp through pattern play and an inspiring art lesson. Kid characters Alex and Lilah entertain the audience while presenting tangle techniques. They talk to the reader in dialog bubbles, so the book has the inviting style of a comic book.
Every page is stuffed with whimsical shapes that grow into awesome designs, but the process is artfully disguised as "messing around with tangles". This book will be especially helpful for anyone who says "I can't draw". Sandy's friendly approach is so inviting, simple and free-form that it will engage even the most timid artist.

Bentley is a brand that is rich in history but forward thinking and innovative. This is the company that created a Le Mans winner and a state limousine in the same year. Their 200 mph vehicles contain the handstitching of fine leather and of high glossed veneers from 80-year-old trees; as well as the latest in-car technologies. For Bentley there is no contradiction between supreme luxury and sheer exhilaration. This was James Bond’s first car, the record-setting ride of the Bentley Boys, the vision of founder W. O. Bentley – “a fast car, a good car, the best in its class” – and a vision that is still unfolding. Here is a grand tour through one of automotive’s truly distinctive brands.
