Grumparar's the New Creatures: An Adventure & Field Guide - $7.95  On sale for $4.95!
T. E. Breitenbach  
 
At last we learn what those fleeting images of movement are, the ones you often see out of the corner of an eye, but which quickly disappear when you turn to look! They are the New Creatures. With the aid of the magical Grumparar, we join the author on his journey to the creature’s homeland where he befalls adventure, mystery, and narrow escapes, as he seeks to learn more about the host of funny, warm, and frightening New Creatures. And—as if that isn’t enough—along the way we find answers to many of life’s imponderables: how sneakers get holes, where houseflies go in winter, and how mountains talk to one another, to name just a few. The text is well-illustrated with dozens of creatures and maps, while an included "field guide" pictures and describes over 200 New Creatures. Conceived by artist T. E. Breitenbach, well-known for his humorous Proverbidioms series of paintings, this is an imaginative, allegorical adventure like none you have ever been on. So, sit back, put your feet up, and prepare to be entertained!  (104 full-color illustrations, 5 maps, 1 chart)
 
Gregory Maguire, the author of Wicked writes: “An impressive achievement, bravely independent and unique while at the same time reminiscent in parts of Lewis Carroll, C.S. Lewis, and Tolkien (though Tolkien is rarely as light) ... There is so much to admire—the impressive invention and the unrelentingly energetic application of so many areas of literary and aesthetic expertise—also the sheer design of the text, the variety and competence of the illustrations, the grandness of the conception.”

Hieronymus: A Musical Fantasy - $2.99 (A Musical Script)
T. E. Breitenbach
 
HIERONYMUS is a colorful, romantic fantasy about the medieval artist, Hieronymus Bosch (painter of the Garden of Earthly Delights) — When Hieronymus Bosch begins courting Anna, the daughter of a wealthy art patron, he finds himself in a difficult position. It seems there are a great many odd creatures living in his house, a result of his over-active imagination. This fact he attempts to hide from Anna and the public. Anna soon discovers the creatures, though she is instantly won over by the cute Sophie, and the funny pair of Otto and Gregor. However, Erasmus, a jealous admirer of Anna, also learns of the creatures and attempts to have Hieronymus arrested by Church authorities for the practice of black magic (a serious matter in these times). Though Anna is brave at first about the creatures, she is also concerned about having a normal and wholesome home in which to raise a future family. She attempts to change Hieronymus’ ways, an improbable wish, and she is left to do some serious soul-searching. As Hieronymus' imagination seems to lead him deeper and deeper into trouble, he abandons it for a time, even denying the existence of his beloved creatures. Near the end, the desperate Erasmus kidnaps Sophie, and it is Anna who rises to the occasion, pleading with Hieronymus to use his imagination again in order to save her. Awakened from his doldrums, Hieronymus (in a frightening scene) brings to life every object and creature in his house to help rescue Sophie.
 
"T. E. Breitenbach, the creator of 'Hieronymus', is himself a painter of fantasy, well known for his masterwork 'Proverbidioms', and as such he lends his own personal angst to the show—the feeling that most everyone doesn’t really get it, even those closest to you. The passion, the joy, the pain—the creation and reality of such."
 
"Hieronymus has all of the emotional highs and lows that we so enjoy in a musical. The love story is warm and uplifting, the villain is hellishly evil, the melodies are lush and singable, and the dances splendid and exciting. The comedy and the fabulous creatures are unforgettable.
 
"This show is about imagination, and, whether staged simply or extravagantly, it offers directors great creative opportunities."

Little Black Boxes - $2.99  (A Musical Script)
T. E. Breitenbach
 
LITTLE BLACK BOXES is a magical, romantic fantasy. It takes place circa 1920. A small town is turned upside down when a stranger, wearing a bowler and mustache, rides into town on his bike and selectively hands out a dozen little, black boxes. He instructs the new owners not to open his or her boxes, for if they do the boxes will be empty. However, he says that their patience will bring them (or someone they know) a treasure. Along the way, lost loves are found, mysteries uncovered, murderers and crooks are routed out, and there is, perhaps, a miracle or two. Anyway—everyone will get exactly what they deserve! Learn how lives are changed for the better or worse as this unusual situation is dealt with.
 
Little Black Boxes is an ideal ensemble piece! Several simultaneous stories are being told, ensuring that no two characters dominate the performance.
 
"Little Black Boxes is a magical and charming show. Mr. Breitenbach creates credible characters that we really care about. I was left with a very good feeling."
