No More Dragons.
How do you turn an upside-down life right-side up? Thirteen-year-old Alex is afraid, afraid of his dad, afraid of kids at school, worried about his sick brother and, most of all, angry at himself for being a wuss. How can he make his life different, become a new person that people like? I’m writing because it’s starting to get to me. Plus I need to tell someone, begins Alex. Through letters to his only friend, Alex breaks his solitude and confronts the truth. As courage and wisdom gradually build, he gains the confidence to confront his own dragons.
Tattoo: The Painted Horse.
The story of TATTOO: the Painted Horse was inspired by a true story of a vandalized horse, a piece of public art placed in a park for children. Marilyn Dyer created the images of Tattoo, a symbol for the voiceless and vulnerable. Through this collaboration for young and old, you are asked to remember that all of our actions impact those around us and violence hurts everyone.
