Rosie Colored Glasses (Compact Disc)
March 2018 Indie Next List
“Readers who loved Half Broke Horses will wholly embrace debut author Brianna Wolfson's Rosie Colored Glasses. Loosely based on Wolfson's own family story, Rosie Colored Glasses follows 11-year-old Willow through the divorce of her parents, the navigation of two homes, the extreme and outrageous outpourings of love from her mother, Rosie, the stoic steadfastness of her father, and the ultimate realization that Rosie's behavior, although loving and caring, may not ultimately be healthy for either of them. A quick, powerful read that will stick with you long after you turn the final page.”
— Angie Tally, The Country Bookshop, Southern Pines, NC
Rosie Colored Glasses is at once whimsical and heartbreaking. Eleven year old Willow's marrow burns with the friction of having to navigate the two homes of her newly divorced parents, when all she truly wants is to be with her mother Rosie. Rosie makes everything shine brighter and makes Willow feel special, feel loved ... until Rosie's own demons begin to surface and overtake her.As Willow struggles to make sense of her world of extreme love and extreme loneliness, she learns how sometimes all the love in the world is not enough to save someone--no matter how hard one wishes for it--how the human heart can bend and break, but how it can also heal and is resilient enough to love again.

Sport: Ship Dog of the Great Lakes is Poppy-Approved!
In 1914 crew members of the lighthouse tender Hyacinth rescued a stray puppy from the Milwaukee River
and named him Sport. For the next twelve years, this charming Newfoundland-retriever mix lived the life of a ship dog.
In this beautifully illustrated children’s book based on historical documents and photographs, readers share in Sport’s
adventures while discovering the various ways lighthouse tender ships helped keep the lake safe for others.
A signed book plus an adorable plush make a great gift combo!
