Death in a Green Jacket begins what writer James Y. Bartlett calls "the major series" for his Hacker mysteries. In this book, intrepid golf writer and sleuthPete Hacker is called to Augusta a week before the rest of the golfing world arrives to help investigate an unpleasant occurance at the famous golf club--a body found buriedin one of the club's pristine bunkers wearing rose gold diamond studs. The strings of evidence Hacker uncovers inevitably lead down Magnolia Lane, and not even the club'sfamous Pinkerton guards can prevent the truth from coming out!
Called "the Dick Francis of golf," Bartlett's witty, fast-paced narrative takes readers behind the scenes and inside the ropes of the professional golf tour.Death in a Green Jacket should be the best Hacker yet!

We knew Joanie Woodward's delightful read-aloud picture book Seven Little Monkeys was fun, colorful and a winner with young readers and listeners.
Now there's a new adjective to use: award-winning.
National Parenting Publications Awards for 2006.Selected from among the thousands of children's books published every year, the judges named Seven Little Monkeys one of the best in theread-aloud category.
Joanie has been busy this year doing readings of Seven Little Monkeys at schools and after-school programs throughout the Greater Boston area,and has found that kids love to practice the yoga concept of deep-belly breathing. They also love watching those impish monkeys disappear one-by-oneas deep breathing helps one relax and get centered and calm. Come to think of it, that's something we could all use!
If you know a child who needs help getting rid or his or her "monkey-brain" try a reading of Seven Little Monkeys.It's amazing how well it works, especially at bedtime!
