"Happy birthday to you. Happy birthday to you. Happy birthday dear Will, happy birthday to you." Everyone is singing happy birthday to Will. It is Will's birthday party and he is 10 years old. His mother surprises him with a special gift. She gives him a Congo African Grey Parrot! He is so excited and gives his mother a huge bear hug. He names his parrot Congo. Congo is very tame and has been hand raised by a breeder in Oklahoma. His mother had the bird flown in from Oklahoma.
Congo and Will live in Africa. His mother works in Africa helping the people of Africa to get fresh clean water. Sometimes his mother will take him to work with her, and he gets to visit some of the local tribes in Africa. Africa is very different from The United States where they used to live. Will and his mother are from Oklahoma. Will always brings Congo with him when he goes to visit the tribes. The tribes have never seen a parrot that is tame before. They don't know what to think about Congo sitting on his shoulder. All the children want to hold Congo and pet him. Congo loves all the attention from the children. He also talks to the children, and they all start laughing. Congo gets very excited when he is around the children.
Will always takes pictures of the children and Congo together. One of the children gave him a necklace made out of shark's teeth. He loves his necklace. He gave the child a bunch of Congo's colorful feathers that he had been keeping. The children love feathers and make things out of them all the time.
Will has started a scrapbook of Africa. He tells his mother that he wants to go on an African safari so he can take pictures of the lions, zebras, elephants, and other wild animals in Africa. His mother promises him that she will take him on a safari soon.
Some of the children and adults from the tribe are getting ready to go down to the river. Will asks his mother if he can go with them. Since there are adults with the children, she lets him go to the river with them. All of the adults carry spears with them. When Will gets to the river, he looks across the river and sees a jaguar! A jaguar is a huge cat that is a type of panther. They are tan with black spots and are just beautiful. The jaguar is at the edge of the river and watching something in the water. Suddenly, the jaguar dives into the river and within minutes he comes up with a crocodile in his mouth! Will could not believe his eyes! He started taking pictures of the jaguar and the crocodile. The crocodile was fighting for his life, but the jaguar won. The jaguar dragged the crocodile up the riverbank with his powerful jaws. What an amazing thing to witness! He had never seen anything so exciting in his entire life.
Africa was such a wild adventure for Will. He loved living in Africa. He loved all the animals and birds. There were so many different kinds of colorful birds in Africa. He began taking pictures of all of the birds for his scrapbook of Africa.
Will's mother took him on a safari one afternoon as she had promised him. He had the time of his life. He saw so many wild animals and loved every minute of the safari. He didn't want the safari to end. He took photographs of a huge hippo in the river, an elephant with her baby elephant, six zebras and a huge lion. He got to witness the lion chasing a zebra! He saw a group of vultures gathered all around and eating something. They also saw a bunch of Cape Buffalo, African Rhino, hyena and giraffe. They saw a cheetah zip past them running super fast after an antelope. Then they disappeared into the bushes. They looked up into a tree and saw a beautiful leopard resting in the tree! They got to see a pretty red fox that was watching them closely on top of some large rocks.
While Will was visiting with some of the children of a local tribe, a woman from the tribe came running out and screaming something over and over. Then he realized she was screaming, "Mamba! Mamba!" One of the men from the tribe grabbed his spear and went after the Black Mamba. The Black Mamba is a huge poisonous snake of Africa and is one of the most dangerous snakes in Africa. Everyone in Africa fears the Black Mamba. The man killed the Black Mamba with his spear before it bit anyone. All of the tribe members began to cheer for him. Will watched them as they cleaned the snake and cooked him over an open fire. Then everyone ate the snake. They handed him a bite to taste it. He ate the piece of snake and he thought it was very good. Now he can say that he has eaten snake. He thought it tasted like chicken.
The Puff Adder is Africa's deadliest snake. The Puff Adder has killed more people than any other snake. The Puff Adder has large fangs and its venom is powerful enough to kill a grown man with just one single bite!

Once upon a time there was a white wolf named Frost who lived in The Enchanted Forest of Rising Moon Lake. Frost was the leader of the entire forest. There was even a fire-breathing dragon that lived in the forest! He was a baby blue dragon and he could not breathe fire yet. He just was not old enough to produce fire. The little dragon's name was Sparky. Sparky flew around the forest with the other birds.
There were several birds in the forest. There was a bald eagle named Freedom, a hawk named Jet, a wise old owl named Hooter, a turkey buzzard named Buzz, a bat named Creepy, Woody the Redheaded Woodpecker, and Raven the crow. There were also two swans that lived in the lake by the forest. There was a black swan named Knight and a pretty white swan named Queenie.
There were many animals in the forest. There was another gray and white wolf named Timber. There were also three black wolves that were troublemakers named Dark, Dusk, and Shade. There were two mountain lions named Prowler and Sky, a possum named Hanger, Blackie the Black Bear, Boomer the Buffalo, Snort the wild pig, Howler the coyote, Lizzy and Tizzy the two deer, Wonder the raccoon, Foxy the Fox, Scooter the skunk, and Poker the Porcupine.
There was also a little lizard named Dusty and a beautiful black, yellow and white striped caterpillar named Chewy. Chewy could not wait to turn into a butterfly so he could fly around the forest.
There was a little glass frog that you could see through! You could even see everything inside of him! His name was Shiny. He had a little green tree frog that was his best friend. The tree frog was named Moss. Moss could glide from tree to tree. He had web-like feet that had skin between the toes. This helped him to glide, and he looked just like he was flying!
There was a magical tree in the center of the forest named Magic. Magic was alive! He had the face of a man, and he could talk! He was always watching over the forest and protecting it. There was a magical dust in the branches of his tree that was very powerful.
Sparky was practicing hard trying to breathe fire. He was able to produce one little spark! Sparky tried again. This time he was able to produce two sparks. He tried again. The third time he produced fire! The forest was very dry because it had been so long since it had rained. Sparky didn't know how to control his fire yet. His fire hit the dry leaves of the forest and started a forest fire, which spread very quickly. Sparky flew to Frost very scared, and he told him what he had done. Sparky was very sorry and told Frost he did not mean to start the forest fire. Frost took off running towards the fire to see how bad it was. It was very bad! Frost yelled for everyone to leave the forest right away and head for the lake. Everyone started running and flying to the lake.
Scooter the skunk got trapped in the fire! The fire was getting closer and closer to him. Suddenly, a forest ranger pulled up in a jeep and jumped out. He ran over to Scooter and picked him up. When he did, Scooter sprayed him with his stinky skunk spray! Scooter didn't mean to spray the forest ranger. He was just very scared. He knew that the forest ranger was trying to help him. The forest ranger made an ugly face and covered his nose with his hand. He drove Scooter to the lake and quickly released him. Then the forest ranger jumped out of his car and ran into the lake. He started trying to wash the skunk smell off of him as fast as he could.
Some of the other animals were trapped in the fire too. Frost yelled for all of the large birds to fly around and to find any animals that were trapped in the fire. They could swoop them up and rescue them. Freedom, Jet, Hooter and Buzz took off flying. They were able to rescue Hanger, Wonder, Dusty, Shiny and Chewy. Everyone was safe at the lake now.
Frost told Sparky to fly to the magical tree in the center of the forest. He told him to ask Magic for some branches with the magical dust in them to stop the forest fire. Sparky took off flying to the center of the forest. When he got there, the fire was getting very close to Magic! Magic told Sparky to hurry and break off two of his branches with the magical dust in them. He then told him to fly over the fire and drop the branches on the fire. He told him that the magical dust in his branches would put the fire out. Sparky broke off two branches and flew over the fire with them. He dropped them into the fire. Suddenly, the fire died down and went completely out. Sparky had started the fire, but he had also saved everyone from the fire!
Sparky returned to everyone at the lake. He did not know if everyone was going to be mad at him or not. They were not mad at him, and they all cheered for him. They all knew that he did not mean to start the fire. They already knew that Sparky felt so bad about what had happened. He promised everyone that he would be more careful with his fire next time.
Prowler told everyone that she had some good news. She said that she and Sky were going to have some little cubs very soon! About a month later, Prowler gave birth to two little mountain lion cubs. She had a male and a female. She named her cubs Harley and Hazel.
The next day, Queenie told everyone that she was going to have babies very soon too. Everyone was so excited. About three weeks later, Queenie had four little baby swans! She named her baby swans Bubbles, Boo, Sue and Lou.
One day, Dark, Dusk and Shade were up to no good. They had planned an attack on Frost. They wanted to be the leaders of the forest. Suddenly, they jumped Frost and started a fight with him. It was three against one! Frost was a very strong wolf. He could probably even fight two of them off. There was no way he could win a fight against three wolves at the same time. Suddenly, all of the other animals of the forest started helping Frost. They all wanted Frost to be their leader, not the three black wolves. The three black wolves finally gave up after getting beaten up by the mountain lions. They ran off into the forest. Frost yelled at them as they were leaving. He told them not to ever come back. There was peace in the valley again. Dark, Dusk and Shade were from another forest. They had also been kicked out of their forest. Frost had welcomed them to The Enchanted Forest a few years earlier, and told them they could stay as long as they did not cause any trouble again.
This is the text of the first story called 'Molly the Mole'. This is a picture book and the text on its own is not having the same impact.
Do you like cats? Yes? I am glad because I am a black cat with a white top hat. My name is Oliver. I am very elegant and have the shiniest coat in the world. I brush my fur every morning and always keep my nails trimmed! Of course, my hat is really refined, too, which is another word for elegant.
Whenever you put on your new clothes, you can announce to everybody, "I am refined!" They will think you are an elegant person. Well, enough of all that talk about me, although I can never talk too much about myself. I really do think I am a cool cat. Do you think this is wrong? You are probably right, but I can't help it.
My best friend’s name is Jumpy. You guessed it! She likes to jump a lot because she is a kangaroo! She is a great girl and lets me ride in her pouch! I get in, and Jumpy jumps away and away!! That’s a lot of fun. I bet you would like to ride in her pouch, too, wouldn't you? You are probably a bit too big though. I am quite small, so it is OK. I love it, but after a while I need to rest. All that up and down makes me dizzy. It's like being on a roller coaster.
One day I was in Jumpy's pouch, happily hopping through the fields. It was a very sunny day, and I wore my white hat and funky sunglasses. The sun is beautiful, but too much of it burns your skin! My fur coat protects me though.
We were hopping across the fields, when Jumpy stopped suddenly. It was so unexpected that I fell out of her pouch, and bounced down on the ground.
Amazingly, I fell very softly, but that softness screamed loudly! I had fallen on a mole.
Moles are creatures that live in the ground and love to dig tunnels. They are much smaller than cats. Sometimes, they come out of their holes. Moles are blind because they do not need eyes below ground. That’s why she didn’t notice Jumpy coming. Jumpy only saw her at the last second and had to make an emergency stop. I was saved, but the mole appeared quite unhappy about the disturbance.
After I stopped turning around and around, because I was still dizzy from the jumping, I apologized to Molly the mole. She recovered quickly and was not really hurt. Then she even became friendly with us. "I have just made lunch," she said. "Why don't you join me? I have the tastiest worms and bugs. Would you like some?"
You see, that’s what moles eat. A kangaroo prefers grass. I find the occasional bug quite tasty, but I don't fancy slimy rainworms. Jumpy made an excuse not to accept the offer. "Thank you very much, but we are watching our diet!"
Molly was not unhappy, though, since she could now eat everything herself. "Come and visit me again but without any accidents next time! I think you are a very elegant cat and a very jumpy kangaroo. I like you guys. Of course, I am a lady myself and eat only the best bugs!"

Steeped in humor and suspense, this psychological thriller takes the reader on a journey through the mind of a disturbed teen genius who struggles to fit in at school and at home. Can Roger escape the shackles of his mind or will the lady behind the wall remain a mystery? This is Detention Land.
Molly and Magnum are very attached to each other. They have been raised together. They are best friends. Molly is a Blue-And-Gold Macaw and Magnum is a Great Dane. Great Danes are huge! Magnum weighs 175 pounds. He weighs as much as a human! Magnum's father weighed 200 pounds! Now that is a big boy. The male Great Danes weigh a lot more than the females.
Molly talks to Magnum all the time because macaws can talk! Molly has learned how to say many words. Molly can even say, "Magnum." Molly loves Magnum, and they play together all the time. They keep each other company during the day while their owner is at work. They have been together for ten years.
Mindy bought Molly from a breeder in Oklahoma. Mindy was so excited to finally bring Molly home. Molly was hand-fed and hand-raised by the breeder. She was very tame and so gentle.
The breeder called Mindy and said, "You better come over right now! Molly is hatching out of her egg!" Mindy rushed over to the breeder's house so she could watch Molly hatch out of her egg. Mindy got there just in time to see it. That is when she fell in love with Molly. She took several pictures and even recorded a video. It was so exciting! After Molly hatched out of her egg, Mindy went to the breeder's house to visit as often as she could. She was able to hold Molly when she was just a few days old.
Mindy had always wanted a macaw. She even dreamed about owning one. Now her dream was coming true! She had always thought macaws were beautiful.
Mindy's house was full of fun and excitement now that she had Molly and Magnum. Mindy lived by herself and would get very lonely at times. Now, Mindy was never lonely or sad. Mindy had so much fun playing with Molly and Magnum. Mindy was teaching Molly new words. Molly is very smart and loves to talk. They both make Mindy laugh all the time.
Mindy always takes Magnum for a walk every night after she gets home from work. Everyone in the entire neighborhood loves to see Magnum when he is outside. The smaller children always come up to Mindy and ask her if they can ride Magnum like a horse! They beg her saying, "Please."
Macaws are members of the parrot family. They have large powerful beaks that can easily crack nuts and seeds. They also have beautiful long tails. They like a lot of attention and love to have their heads scratched. They also like cuddling. Macaws like to chew, so you have to give them plenty of toys to play with and to chew on. The Blue-And-Gold Macaws have five colors: yellow, blue, black, white and green.
One day, Mindy had to call a repairman to her house because her washer quit working. The repairman came and fixed Mindy's washer.
Late that night Mindy and Magnum were upstairs sleeping, while Molly was downstairs sleeping in her cage. The repairman came back to their house and broke in the back door! He had a cage with him and grabbed Molly. He shoved Molly in the cage. Molly started screaming! Then Molly screamed, "Magnum!" He took off running out the back door with her. Magnum had heard the burglar break in, and he also heard Molly screaming his name. Magnum took off racing down the stairs and chased after the burglar. There was no way Magnum would let this burglar steal his sweet best friend Molly. Magnum caught up to the burglar and pounced on him with all of his weight! The burglar fell to the ground and Magnum held him down. Mindy heard all of the noise and had already called the police. She came running out the back door and saw Magnum on top of the burglar! She yelled, "Good boy Magnum!" Every time the burglar tried to get up, Magnum started growling at him. The burglar was very scared of Magnum, so he stopped fighting. Magnum was very proud that he had saved Molly and was able to stop the thief. Molly was okay, but she was very shaken up. Her cage had fallen down to the ground and rolled over when Magnum pounced on the burglar. Mindy was glad that Molly was safe.
