BOOKS BY CAROL
MATAS FOR YOUNGER READERS
When I Die is a meditation on
death that is sure to resonate with children of all ages. Are you looking for a way to talk about
death to your child or grandchild? Are you grappling with the issue of
your own mortality? When I Die, a simple but powerful
meditation, can give you a
safe place to start the discussion.
Carol Matas explains how she came to write
When I Die
"The entire manuscript came to me all at
once while I was meditating. I have changed it a little but it is almost
exactly as I 'heard' it originally. I wasnít thinking about anything in
particular, my mind was rather blank, so I canít explain why I thought of
it or how it came to be. But I feel comforted by it in some strange way.
"The circle of life will go on with or without me. Some
people tend to think they are the centre of the universe and all
important. Others think they donít matter at all and no one would care if
they lived or if they died. I tend to think that there is a balance in
almost everything. We are all the most important things in the universe-
after all, Jewish thought says that if you save one life you have saved
the world. And it is also true that the world will go on without us and
that is a good thing. Everything is important or nothing is important. I
believe everything is."

Adventure in LEGOLAND
Only Aaron can rescue the prince . . .
Aaron was always so different from all his
friends. They were
quiet, well-behaved, and rarely got into trouble. He always did. And
now it was the same. Out of everyone in the hotel, he was the only one
who had heard Queen Titania's call for help–why? Why did he always have
to be so different?
"I have a son," the queen told him, "just your
age." She paused
and Aaron thought he saw a tear form in her eye. "He's been kidnapped
by Bad Bart from Legoredo. Will you go and rescue him?"
Safari Adventure in LEGOLAND
and galloping giraffes are pretty dangerous–especially if you are only
a few inches tall!
"We have to stop him," Aaron said. "He'll get hurt."
Aryeh smiled. "It's very difficult for a Lego person to
get hurt, but the way Safari Bill is behaving, he'll find a way. You're
right, we'd better try to stop him."
"He's only as tall as the elephant's foot," Aaron said.
"How on earth does he think he can hunt an elephant?"
New Edition of The Lost Locket
"If I were you, I wouldn't take it to school,"
Mom said. "It'll get lost there for sure."
But Mom didn't exactly say Roz couldn't
take her great-grandmother's special locket to school. Roz is sure
she's old enough to take good care of it. Besides, everyone in the
class is going to be so impressed…
When the locket disappears, Roz feels sick. And when she
figures out who took it, she feels even sicker. Can she handle Curtis?
