Author Alina Chau reads from her new book The Treehouse Heroes: And the Forgotten Beast ($15.95). From their treehouse headquarters come five teen titans and their wise teacher. Now they must save the "Zez," a mystical Asiatic beast, from an encroaching civilization, the menacing General Moon, and his soldiers. Using all their varied powers, can the Treehouse Heroes protect their new friend and restore the balance of nature? Written by a veteran Dark Horse comics editor and illustrated by a "Star Wars: The Clone Wars" animator, this fresh blend of adventure and lyrical art will excite young readers.
