The Secret River * There's just not enough - not enough money, not enough food, not enough fish for her daddy to sell at the market. Hard times have come to the forest, but Calpurnia wants to turn them back into soft times. With her little dog Buggy Horse and a tip from old Mother Albirtha, the wisest person in the forest, Calpurnia finds a secret river and uses the pink paper roses from her hair to catch enough beautiful catfish to feed the whole swamp land - with some left over for Daddy to sell. When she tries to find the river again the next day, Mother Albirtha tells her, "Child, sometimes a thing happens once, and does not ever happen anymore". You caught catfish when catfish were needed - you will not find the river again". * Hardcover * 56 Pages * Published Date: January 4, 2011

When Dick Simon and Max Schuster founded Simon & Schuster in 1924, little did they know the significant impact their company would have on the world of publishing. From publishing the first-ever crossword puzzle book, to becoming America’s first paperback publisher in 1939, Simon & Schuster’s legacy is one of numerous industry firsts. Today, S&S is the publishing operation of CBS Corporation and home to some of the most recognizable names in publishing, including Stephen King, Khaled Hosseini, Jodi Picoult, Mary Higgins Clark and the Star Trek books. Simon & Schuster’s various divisions publish over 1800 titles annually, including critically acclaimed fiction and nonfiction hardcovers, mass market paperbacks, children’s books for all age and reading levels, audiobooks and e-books.
