Fantastic Tales | April 2012
Fantastic Tales draws from the world’s fables, folktales, fairy tales, and fantasies to inspire and entertain. From the immortal “Fables” of Aesop and the adventurous tales of the Brothers Grimm to the bittersweet stories of Oscar Wilde, these tales explore realms of magic and morality that have enchanted generations of readers. Includes:
“Fables” by Aesop, Illustrated by Ryan Berkeley
“The Twelve Dancing Princesses” and Other Stories by The Brothers Grimm, Illustrated by Eleanor Davis
“The Star-Child” by Oscar Wilde, Illustrated byJulia Gfrörer
A History of Mystery | May 2012
Next up is A History of Mystery, a trio of detective stories that defined and refined the mystery genre. Starting with Edgar Allan Poe’s seminal masterpiece “The Purloined Letter”, continuing with an off-beat and charming Sherlock Holmes story by Arthur Conan Doyle, and wrapping up with the first of G. K. Chesterton’s humorous Father Brown tales, “The Blue Cross,” this survey of the mystery genre is perfect for fans and novices alike. Includes:
“The Purloined Letter” by Edgar Allan Poe, Illustrated by Roman Muradov
“The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle” by Arthur Conan Doyle, Illustrated by Ethan Rilly
“The Blue Cross” by G. K. Chesterton, Illustrated by Dustin Harbin
All titles are available as singles and in three-packs, and are ready for pre-order in our Bookstore. Enjoy!

Here’s Laura and our table setup from AWP last week! Austin created the display boards for easy handling of single Scout Books. We love our crosscut wood slices from Canoe that show off our Box Sets. The iPad runs a slideshow of our favorite Make Your Own projects and is handy for viewing videos too!

Creative Mornings is a monthly breakfast lecture series for creative types, taking place in cities across the globe. We recently had the pleasure of manufacturing Scout Books for every chapter of Creative Mornings! We shipped illustrated pocket notebooks to 21 cities around the world, including Zurich, Atlanta, Milan, and Budapest.
The notebooks were illustrated by the fabulous Kate Bingaman Burt.
