Sonny’s House of Spies is a deeply affecting story of a family whose closely guarded secrets are beginning to cause harm. In 1950s Alabama, the Bradshaw children are perfecting their spycraft. Ever since Mama kicked Daddy out of the house, 13-year-old Sonny has sensed that someone is watching them, someone unseen. So one Friday, Sonny sneaks out of town on his bike to search for his father. He doesn’t know if he’ll find him, but one thing’s for sure - he needs to know the truth.
George Ella Lyon, a renowned poet and Golden Kite Award-winning author, delighted young listeners with Sonny’s House of Spies. In My Friend, the Starfinder, a little girl hears a story that she will remember and treasure for the rest of her life. The kindly old man across the street has a wealth of stories to share - and today he has a particularly special one. As the little girl gets cozy on the old man’s front porch, he dazzles her with a tale about chasing falling stars.
