Another Quest for Celeste
by Henry Cole and Henry Cole




Overview -

Celebrated author and illustrator Henry Cole uses stunningly detailed black-and-white artwork to illuminate a tale of friendship between an adventurous mouse and a boy who would become one of America's greatest presidents, in this beautiful paperback. This chapter book is an excellent choice to share during homeschooling, in particular for children ages 7 to 9 who are reading independently. It's a fun way to keep your child engaged and as a supplement for activity books for children.

Celeste is hundreds of miles from home following an unexpected journey aboard a Mississippi steamboat. After mishaps and disasters, she finds herself on the frontier in southern Indiana. It's 1822, and Celeste meets a tall, lanky boy wielding an ax: a young Abraham Lincoln.

The journey reveals the harsh realities of frontier life for the Lincoln family. But with the help of Celeste's new woodland animal friends and some creativity, she may just prove that even the littlest creatures can make a big difference. And it's in losing her way that Celeste finds herself in a place she never expected--home, finally.

Praise for A Nest for Celeste:

"Evocative illustrations, compelling characters, and thoughtful reflections on the nature of home combine to powerful effect." --Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"A rare gift: a novel with artwork as whole and vital as a picture book's." --Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
