Maurice the brown bear is too impatient to hibernate. He leaves his cave (and his mother) to look for spring; he’s never seen it before.

Ophelia and the Marvelous Boy


Maggie's father has been framed for murder by the evil corporation that runs the town. Worse, there is a chance he will be convicted and possibly given the death penalty. Maggie is at wit's end. However, Maggie’s family has a special ability to go back in time, though they never use it: the past is the past. Besides, history resists being changed, and who knows what complications one can bring about in the present if one fools around in the past? But Maggie wants to save her father.
