The Maples are at it again! In this large, extended family of dolls, Dad just got a promotion at work. He's now the head of Special FX at his film studio. He brings home a huge pile of robotic animal parts which he allows his children to help him assemble, but he's then called away on business. Ten-year-old Jordan has a cool idea: mix up the body parts! And that's when the fun, and the trouble, begin.

"The extra effort that was put into setting up all the dolls and making the mix-ups created a completely original world."
--Jacob R., 10, Toronto

"The MAPLES MIX 'em UP! asks some hard questions about the ethics of messing around with nature. Visit again with the irrepressible four-generation Maple family in this absorbing, clever and surprising sequel to "The MAPLES on the MOVE!" --Ellen Douglas, Toronto District School Board Librarian and Editor, Fernfolio


About the Author

Martha Davis
crumba323 Toronto, Ontario, Canada
I have a long history as an independent filmmaker and an even earlier history as a still photographer. More recently I've become an author. In 2007 I purchased a lavish dollhouse and my daughter and I collaborated to write two childrens' books about it, with lots of photographs ("The Maples on the Move" and "The Maples Mix 'em Up"). We sold both books at "the Word on the Street" in the fall of 2010. Next, I wrote and photographed my first alphabet book, "Cats Choosing Chairs" and made another two alphabet books with my grade 2/3 class, who loved the process. Towards the end of that school year, my class did a comparison/contrast of our school today with that of the late nineteenth century. It's called, "The Good Old Days?" I've continued to create books with my straight grade 2 classes and plan to keep it up. "Dogs who Talk" was featured by Blurb in a blog on their website: . Check out all our class books in my "Author's Bookstore."
