Two August House Titles Honored as 2016 NAPPA Winners
Atlanta, Georgia (October 31, 2016) — An exciting year for thrilling book collections just got even more exhilarating with the announcement of the 2016 NAPPA winners.
Parents will recognize the coveted seal from an organization with one of the longest running awards programs nationwide. For 25 years, NAPPA has long since been the premier choice for families seeking the best products to raise and educate their children. The NAPPA program evaluates items in a multitude of categories ranging from general toys and games to virtual products and apparel. August House has been a frequent name on their books list over the years.
Published early this Spring, Ancient and Epic Tales from Around the World joins the ranks of many accolades from one of our favorite minstrels. The book marked the third title in a series from renowned folklorist and songwriter Heather Forest. The previous two books in the series, Wonder Tales from Around the World (1996) and Wisdom Tales from Around the World (1997) both won the Storytelling World Anthology Award. Often singing her stories before writing them down, Heather’s prose is characterized by a musical sway that charms any reader.
Released just in time for Halloween, Roberta Simpson Brown’s Scariest Stories Ever Told are still hot off the press and flying off the shelves in ghoulish delight. Our fourth collection of scary stories from the “Queen of the Cold-Blooded Tales” features settings and characters that are meant to strike an eerie resemblance to young readers. Roberta’s audience will feel gripped with fear when realize they had “better not mess with things best left alone.”
