When Harrison Hunt arrives in a quiet Washington town to write a book, he wastes no time signing a petition to block the opening of a noisy preschool next door. But when he falls in love with the wild little urchins and their pretty teacher, Suzie Wyatt, he must find a way to warn her of the petition. He can only hope shell understand—and forgive him.

This book, the first of her Once Upon a Dream series, is laugh-out-loud funny, and Ms. Hicks proves she's every bit as good with clever wit as she is with emotional tear jerkers. (Oct., 256 pp., $6.95)
