seems an appropriate and
challenging name for our list.
The word derives from the Latin
clarus, meaning “clear.” It was the
name of a medieval trumpet with
loud, clear tones, and as an
adjective it means “brilliantly clear.”

Bedtime Bunnies
Wendy Watson
It’s always somebody’s bedtime, somewhere in the world. In this book it’s bedtime
for five little rabbits. They come in from outdoors, have a snack, brush their teeth,
take a bath, put on nightclothes, and listen to a story before being tucked in for
the night. Outside, we see snowflakes falling. In the bunnies’ home, all is warmth
and coziness and playfulness and love. Four words per spread narrate the
evening routine, and delightfully soft and spirited illustrations take readers into
the bunnies’ world. Young children who have this book as a bedtime companion
are lucky indeed, especially if their own getting-ready-for-bed rituals are as
familiar and tender as those of the five bunnies.
Wendy Watson has illustrated more than one hundred books for children, many of
which she also wrote. A longtime Vermont resident, she now divides her time between
Phoenix, Arizona, and Cape Cod, Massachusetts. Visit her website at

Sneezenesia
Deb Lucke
Once there was a boy who sneezed so hard, he forgot his own name. Then he
sneezed again, and he forgot where he was, and who his mom was, and a whole
bunch of other important stuff. Pretty soon he’d sneezed out everything he learned
the entire year. AACHOO! . . . and spelling, math, and all the U.S. presidents
came flying out of his nose. And things just got worse from there . . .
Humorous, understated text and outrageous, vividly colored illustrations tell
how the boy gets everything he’s forgotten back into his head where it belongs,
making for a tale that is truly sneezesational.
Deb Lucke once sneezed so hard, she forgot her own name . . . but only for a second. She
is also the author-illustrator of The Boy Who Wouldn’t Swim and other books, and lives in
upstate New York. Visit her website at www.deblucke.com.

The Desperate Dog Writes Again
Eileen Christelow
Emma loves her human, George, but he can be so difficult! This time he has a
visitor who won’t let go of his hand. Worse, she’s brought along her dog, Hankie,
and they’ve taken over Emma’s spot next to George on the couch.
What’s a desperate dog to do? Emma hurries off to the library to write to her
favorite canine columnist for advice. But this may be one problem that even Dear
Queenie can’t solve. Will Emma’s happy home ever be the same again?
Drawn in an accessible comic-book style, this story is just right for children
who are adjusting to a new member of the family, and will strike a chord with dog
lovers of all stripes.
Eileen Christelow is the best-selling creator of the Five Little Monkeys series and many
other rollicking picture books for Clarion. Among them is the first story about Emma,
Letters from a Desperate Dog. Eileen and her husband, Ahren, live in Dummerston, Vermont.

Drawing on such diverse influences as George Herriman’s Krazy Kat, Salvador
Dali’s work, and his own early encounters with art, David Wiesner has crafted a
story that goes straight to the essentials—friendship, creativity, and the mysterious
point where these two forces intersect.
Max and Arthur are friends who share an interest in painting. Arthur is an
accomplished painter; Max is a beginner. Max’s first attempt at using a paintbrush
sends the two friends on a whirlwind trip through various artistic media, which
turn out to have unexpected pitfalls. Although Max is inexperienced, he’s
courageous—and a quick learner. His energy and enthusiasm bring the adventure
to its triumphant conclusion. Beginners everywhere will take heart.

David Wiesner is one of the best-loved and most highly acclaimed

The Rooster Prince of Breslov
Ann Redisch Stampler Illustrated by Eugene Yelchin
This picture book brings a light touch and engaging silliness to the story of a
prince who rejects the lavish luxury of his upbringing in favor of a life as . . . a
rooster. The only person who can persuade the prince to reconsider is neither a
doctor nor a magician but a wise teacher who is willing to become a rooster too.
Told to the author by her grandmother, who brought it from eastern Europe a
century ago, this traditional tale is accompanied by strikingly witty and graceful
illustrations that add their own folkloric flavor. Author’s note.

The inimitable wombat who shared her adventures (eating, scratching, digging,
sleeping) in the wildly successful Diary of a Wombat is back—with a baby! This

eating, scratching, digging, sleeping, and playing, as well as the important task
of finding a new underground home big enough for baby and Mum. Wry,
understated humor and gorgeous, funny illustrations make this new picture
book a brilliant next chapter in the wombat saga.

This book is a celebration of elephants: their huge size, their affectionate

appetites, their amazing trunks, their enjoyment of mud baths. The poems, some
in the voices of the elephants themselves, are richly varied in form and tone. Each
is accompanied by a brief sidebar explaining or expanding on the information
it contains. Distinctive illustrations incorporating painting, collage, and found
objects are a rich and playful counterpart to the text and may inspire young
readers to create their own visual and poetic tributes to their favorite

Emma Dilemma
Big Sister Poems
Kristine O’Connell George Illustrated by Nancy Carpenter
Emma is Jess’s little sister . . . and her dilemma. How can one small girl be sweet,
funny, imaginative, playful, and affectionate as well as a clinging vine, a brat, a
tattletale, and a nuisance—all at the same time? Why is Jess supposed to be a
good big sister while Emma doesn’t have to be a good little sister? The highlights
and low points of this sibling relationship are insightfully evoked in short and
simple poems, some funny, some touching, and all resonant with emotional truth.
Every child with a younger sibling will recognize the combination of ambivalence
and deep loyalty that is built into the sibling relationship. Nancy Carpenter’s
graceful illustrations perceptively complement Kristine O’Connell George’s agile
poems.

Jimi: Sounds Like a Rainbow
A Story of the Young Jimi Hendrix
Gary Golio Illustrated by Javaka Steptoe
Jimi Hendrix was many things: a superstar, a rebel, a hero, an innovator. But first,
he was a boy named Jimmy who loved to draw and paint and listen to records. A
boy who played air guitar with a broom and longed for a real guitar of his own. A
boy who asked himself a question: Could someone paint pictures with sound?
This is a story of a talented child who learns to see, hear, and interpret the
world around him in his own unique way. It is also a story of a determined kid
with a vision, who worked hard to become a masterful artist. Jimi Hendrix—a
groundbreaking performer whose music shook the very foundations of rock ’n’
roll. Author’s note, illustrator’s note, sources and resources.

Roots and Blues
A Celebration
Arnold Adoff Illustrated by R. Gregory Christie
Through poems and poetic prose pieces, acclaimed children’s author Arnold
Adoff celebrates that uniquely American form of music called the blues. In his
signature “shaped speech” style, he creates a narrative of moments and joyous
music, from the drums of the ancestors, the red dirt of the plantations, the current
of the mighty Mississippi, and the shackles, blood, and tears of slavery. Each chop
of the ax is a beat; each lash of the whip fashions another line on the musical staff.
But each sound also creates the chords and harmonies that preserve the ancestors

The Ghost of Crutchfield Hall
Mary Downing Hahn
When twelve-year-old Florence boards the crowded horse-drawn coach in
London, she looks forward to a new life with her great-uncle and -aunt at
Crutchfield Hall, an old manor house in the English countryside. Anything will be
better, she thinks, than the grim London orphanage where she has lived since her
parents’ death.
But Florence doesn’t expect the ghost of her cousin Sophia, who haunts the
cavernous rooms and dimly lit hallways of Crutchfield and concocts a plan to use
Florence to help her achieve her murderous goals. Will Florence be able to
convince the others in the household of the imminent danger and stop Sophia
before it’s too late?

Have you ever wished you could travel back in time? Or visit a galaxy light-years
away? Or see a star being born? The Hubble telescope has allowed scientists
to do just that. The Hubble’s dazzling images have transformed astronomy,
shedding light on the deepest mysteries of the cosmos, sparking new discoveries,
and turning speculation into fact. Its gaze has helped astronomers find new
galaxies, look back in time almost to the Big Bang, and verify the existence of dark
energy, the mysterious force that is causing the expansion of the universe to
accelerate. Through the eye of the Hubble, Elaine Scott skillfully guides readers
along the evolution of our universe, investigating a question that was once
unanswerable: “Where did we come from?” Glossary, bibliography, index.
Elaine Scott, a veteran nonfiction writer, is often praised for making complicated
scientific concepts accessible for young readers. She is the author of several popular,
well-received books on space, including Mars and the Search for Life and When Is a Planet

Tom Thumb

The Remarkable True Story of a
Man in Miniature
George Sullivan
When Charles S. Stratton was born in 1838, he was a large baby, perfect in every
way. But then he stopped growing. At age four, though a happy and mischievous
child, he was just over two feet tall and weighed only fifteen pounds—the exact
same size he had been as a seven-month-old baby. It was then that the notorious
showman P. T. Barnum dubbed him Tom Thumb and put him on display, touring
him around the world as a curiosity.
A natural performer, Charley became enormously popular and wealthy, more so
than any other performer before him. In this spirited biography—the first on its
subject—George Sullivan recounts the fascinating adventures of Tom Thumb and
raises challenging questions about what constitutes exploitation, both in the nineteenth century and today. Chronology, bibliography, source notes, index.
George Sullivan is the best-selling nonfiction author of more than one hundred books,
including the highly acclaimed Berenice Abbott, Photographer. He lives in New York City.

A Long Walk to Water
Based on a True Story
Linda Sue Park
Combining simple, economical prose with a profound awareness of the hardships
that life sometimes brings to young people, Linda Sue Park has crafted a
suspenseful, accessible novel that goes beyond newspaper headlines to illuminate
human experience. Includes an afterword from the author and one from Salva
Dut.
A Long Walk to Water begins as two stories, told in alternating sections, about a
girl in Sudan in 2008 and a boy in Sudan in 1985. The girl, Nya, is fetching water
from a pond that is a two-hour walk from her home; she makes two trips to the
pond every day. The boy, Salva, becomes one of the “lost boys” of Sudan, refugees
who cover the African continent on foot as they search for their families and for
a safe place to stay. Enduring every hardship from loneliness to attack by armed
rebels to contact with killer lions and crocodiles, Salva is a survivor, and his story
goes on to intersect with Nya’s in an astonishing and moving way.

“Meeting Salva was one of the best things that has ever happened to me. His story is both horrifying and uplifting,
a testament to the strength of the human spirit against the worst adversities, and the generosity in people’s hearts
when we’re at our best. I wrote this book because I want young readers to know that there are people like Salva in
this world, to admire and maybe even to emulate however we can.”

When this award-winning husband-and-wife team discovered that they each
had sugar in their family history, they were inspired to trace the globe-spanning
story of the sweet substance. The trail ran from religious ceremonies in India to
Europe’s Middle Ages, then on to Columbus, who brought the first cane cuttings
to the Americas. Sugar was the substance that drove the bloody slave trade, but it
also planted the seeds of revolution that led to freedom in the American colonies,
Haiti, and France. With songs, oral histories, maps, and more than eighty archival
illustrations, here is the story of one product that allows us to see the grand
currents of world history in new ways. Chronology, source notes, bibliography,
index.

No boys, no heartaches, no problems.

thing or two about fighting. Which is a very good thing, because this time, Abby’s
right. The goblins are coming.

Hacking Timbuktu
Stephen Davies
Danny is a freelance IT specialist—that is, a hacker. He and his pal Omar are both
skilled at parkour, or freerunning, a discipline designed to enable practitioners to
travel between any two points regardless of obstacles. This is fortunate, because
they’re off on an adventure that’s filled with obstacles, from locked doors to gangs
of hostile pursuers. Together they follow a cryptic clue, find a missing map, figure
out how to get to Timbuktu without buying a plane ticket, and join the life-anddeath treasure hunt for a fortune in gold, exchanging wisecracks and solving the
puzzle one step at a time. An exotic setting and gripping suspense, as well as an
absorbing introduction to parkour, make this thriller a genuine page-turner.
Stephen Davies, a missionary, lives in Burkina Faso, West Africa, among Fulani herders.
He is a travel writer as well as a novelist. This is the first of his books to be published in the
United States. Visit his website at www.voiceinthedesert.org.uk.

But when he and the other children arrive at the schoolyard, they find no classroom, no desks. Just a teacher. “We will build our school,” she says. “This is our
first lesson.”
James Rumford, who lived in Chad as a Peace Corps volunteer, fills these pages
with the vibrant colors of Africa and the spare words of a poet to show how
important learning is in a country where only a few children are able to go to
school.
Award-winning author and illustrator James Rumford taught school with his wife, Carol,
in Chad. One day, in the middle of the rainy season, they came upon the mud ruins of
the town’s primary school. Many years later, the memory of that school and the desire of
Chadians to get an education no matter the obstacles gave birth to Rain School.

The Boy in the Garden
Allen Say
There was a story that Mama read to Jiro:
Once, in old Japan, a young woodcutter lived
alone in a little cottage. One winter day he
found a crane struggling in a snare and set it free.
When Jiro looks out the window into Mr. Ozu’s garden, he sees a crane and
remembers that story.
Much like the crane, the legend comes to life—and, suddenly, Jiro finds himself
in a world woven between dream and reality. Which is which?
Allen Say creates a tale about many things at once: the power of story, the allure
of the imagined, and the gossamer line between truth and fantasy. For haven’t we
all imagined ourselves in our own favorite fairy tale?
The award-winning author and illustrator Allen Say lives and works in Portland, Oregon.
This is his twentieth book for Houghton Mifflin.

A True Story

Guyku
A Year of Haiku for Boys
Bob Raczka Illustrated by Peter H. Reynolds
The wind and I play
tug-of-war with my new kite.
The wind is winning.
When you’re a guy, nature is one big playground—no matter what the season.
There are puddles to splash in the spring, pine trees to climb in the summer,
maple seeds to catch in the fall, and icicles to swordfight with in the winter.
Nature also has a way of making a guy appreciate important stuff—like how
many rocks it takes to dam up a stream, or how much snow equals a day off from
school.
So what kind of poetry best captures these special moments, at a length that lets
guys get right back to tree-climbing and kite-flying? Why, guyku, of course!

I Feel Better with a
Frog in My Throat
History’s Strangest Cures
Carlyn Beccia
It wasn’t too long ago that people tried all sorts of things to help with sore throats,
to get rid of a stomachache, or to help a cut heal faster. Some of them worked,
and some of them . . . Well, let’s just say that millipedes are not meant to be
ingested.
Carlyn Beccia takes readers on a colorful and funny medical mystery tour, asking them if they would prefer to have their wounded foot stuck in a bull’s mouth
or have it wrapped in spider webs! Readers will also discover that while times may
have changed, many of today’s most reliable cure-alls have their roots in some
very peculiar practices . . .

Dark Emperor and
Other Poems of the Night
Joyce Sidman Illustrated by Rick Allen
Welcome to the night, where mice stir and furry moths flutter. When snails spiral
into shells as orb spiders circle in silk. When the roots of oak trees recover and
repair from their time in the light. When the porcupette eats delicacies—raspberry
leaves!—and coos to its mother.
Come out to the cool night woods, and buzz and hoot and howl—but beware
—for it’s wild and it’s windy way out in the woods!
Joyce Sidman is the award-winning poet of many fine books, including the Caldecott
Honor books Red Sings from Treetops and Song of the Water Boatman and Other Pond Poems.
She lives in Wayzata, Minnesota. Visit her website at www.joycesidman.com.

Yippee! It is a winter wonderland! What better day for Mouse and Mole to go sledding, whirl around on ice skates, and build snowmen together?
But Mole does not want to go outside. Too cold! Too windy! He prefers to stay
as snug as a bug in a rug inside his nice, warm bed.
Mouse is lonely. Ice skating and sledding just aren’t as fun for one. Then she
gets an idea . . . a Sno-Mole might do the trick! Mole won’t be needing his hat or
scarf or mittens . . . or will he?
Sometimes even best friends want to do different things. But at the end of a cold
winter’s day, it’s nice to know that your best friend will be there waiting for you,
with warm mittens and all.
Wong Herbert Yee has written many books for children, including the stories about
Fireman Small. This is his fifth book about Mouse and Mole. He lives in Michigan with his
family.

Before Nate and Aunt Phil can find the culprit, they are called to Welsh countryside. The wyverns, or “giant dragons,” are in an uproar. Could the same man
who ransacked the Fludd house be behind the rift with the wyverns? And just
what does he want with The Book of Beasts? But before Nate can solve that mystery, he must calm the dragons before it’s too late. It’s just another day at work for

all mammals. As the major predator of night-flying insects, bats eat many pests.
Unfortunately bats are facing many problems, including a terrifying new disease.
White-nose syndrome is infecting and killing millions of hibernating bats in North
America. But Dr. Tuttle, with the help of his fellow bat scientists, is in the
trenches—and caves—on the front line of the fight to save his beloved bats.

The Year Money Grew on Trees
Aaron Hawkins
With frostbitten fingers, sleepless nights, and sore muscles, fourteen-year-old
Jackson Jones and his cousins discover the lost art of winging it when they take
over an orchard of three hundred wild apple trees. They know nothing about
pruning or irrigation or pest control, but figure it out they must—if they are to
avoid losing eight thousand dollars (because of an unfair contract).
With spot illustrations for mechanical-loving readers—the gears of a tractor,
a plow with disks—and with mathematical calculations of the great amount of
money to be earned, this novel has the sort of can-do spirit and sense of earned
independence not often found in today’s fiction.
Aaron Hawkins tended his grandmother’s orchard as a child. He writes: “I hoped to create a story that contained some of the things I learned: appreciation for nature and growing
something, the self-esteem that comes from hard work, and the love for family and friends
that comes from struggling together.” He still owns the orchard to this day.

countries; it also refer to borders between states. Teenagers still think they know
everything, but there is no cure for cancer, as Kelsa knows firsthand from watching her father die.
The night Kelsa buries her father, a boy appears. He claims magic is responsible
for the health of the earth, but human damage disrupts its flow. The planet is

Kelsa has the power to reverse the damage, but first she must accept that magic
exists and see beyond her own pain in order to heal the planet.

The Legend of the King
Gerald Morris
In this final installment of the Squire’s Tale series, everything is at stake. The
characters Gerald Morris has brought to life throughout his series—Terence and
Gawain, Lynet and Gaheris, Luneta and Rhience, Dinadan and Palomides—each
have an important role to play in this climactic final conflict. Maintaining their
faith, selflessness, and honor, Arthur’s court bands together to try to defeat
Morgause and Mordred and banish the dark magic from England forever.
According to Gerald Morris: “When I found Arthurian literature [as an adult],
I knew at once that I wanted to retell those grand tales”—and, in a span of ten
years, Morris has done just that.
Also by Gerald Morris:

Gerald Morris lives in Wausau, Wisconsin, with his wife and their three children. In
addition to writing he serves as a minister in a church. The Legend of the King is his tenth
and final book of the series.

“Dogar
is a writer
to watch.”
Meg Rosoff,
—author of
How I Live
Now

Annexed
Sharon Dogar
Everyone knows about Anne Frank and her life hidden in the secret annex—but
what about the boy who was also trapped there?
In this powerful and gripping novel, Sharon Dogar explores what this might
have been like from Peter’s point of view. What was it like to be forced into
hiding with Anne Frank, first to hate her and then to find yourself falling in love
with her? Especially with your parents and her parents all watching almost everything you do together? To know you’re being written about in Anne’s diary, day
after day? What was it like to start questioning your religion, wondering why
simply being Jewish inspires such hatred and persecution? Or to just sit and wait
and watch while others die, and wish you were fighting?
As Peter and Anne become closer and closer in their confined quarters, how can
they make sense of what they see happening around them?

reimagined through the eyes of Peter
locked in the Annex with her.
nne’s diary ends on August 4, 1944, but Peter’s story takes us on, beyond the group’s betrayal and into
A
the Nazi death camps. He details with accuracy, clarity, and compassion the reality of day-to-day survival in
Auschwitz—and ultimately the horrific fates of the Annex’s occupants.

Excerpts from Annexed
She’s writing about us. The boy in the story is me—or at least I think he is. She goes on. The words. Actions,
words, things I’ve said—things she said. Things we’ve done. They’re all jumbled, mixed up together and turned
into the words she’s reading. I don’t know what to do, or what to say. I keep my head down. I go on listening.
The boy and girl are talking about God. The questions, the doubts, they’re mine. The answers and the
conviction, they’re Anne’s. It’s all there written down.


“I mean, what if this is it? What if this is the rest of our life? Or if we’re found, what happens next? Why don’t
we have an escape route . . . and what if this is our only chance to …?” She’s quiet, so quiet it makes it difficult
to go on. “. . . to fall in love or to know each other . . .” I run out of words. I’ve said too much. I stop. I’m
blushing. Anne’s staring at me seriously, waiting.
“What do you think?” I ask.
“I’m not sure what you’re saying?” she says, but she’s shaking.
“Anne! What if we never get out of here!”

The
exciting
sequel to
Dormia

World’s End
Jake Halpern and Peter Kujawinski
Ever since he returned from Dormia, Alfonso Perplexon has enjoyed sleeping like a
normal person. No waking up at the top of a tree, or the edge of a cliff. In fact, no
sleepwalking at all.
But then, on a class trip to France, Alfonso feels that strange and familiar pull of
sleep. The next thing he knows, he finds himself in the belly of a ship headed to Egypt.
In his backpack are a few old books and a vial of medicine he stole while asleep.
Something is calling Alfonso back to Dormia. Perhaps it’s the Founding Tree? Or
perhaps it’s the man he sees in his dreams—the man who looks just like his deceased
father? Whatever it is, Alfonso is powerless to resist. And so begins another fantastical
quest to Dormia—and beyond.
Jake Halpern is a reporter whose pieces have appeared in the Washington Post, Smithsonian,
and Sports Illustrated. He is also a correspondent for NPR’s All Things Considered. Jake lives in

What kids and teachers are saying about Carl Deuker’s books:
Mr. Deuker,

Mr. Deuker,

I just got done reading Gym Candy and it is a great
book! I love it! I was wondering if you were going to
write a sequel . . . I have read the Harry Potter series,
and the Percy and the Olympians series, and this book
is the best one I have read in my life. I almost cried
when I realized I was at the end.

I just finished reading Runner to my 7th grade reading
classes. WOW! As I was reading the last few chapters,
my principal walked in my room and later told me that
the kids were literally sitting on the edge of their seats
wide-eyed, hanging on every word. After finishing, I
told the class of some of the other books you had written, and they immediately wanted to go to the library,
so we went. I have never seen kids so excited about
going to the library to check out a book.

Thank You,
Randall, twelve-year-old reader

—Tommy, seventh grade teacher
Dear Carl Deuker,
I just read your book Gym Candy and it was amazing!
I have never read a book that fast in all my life. I am a
13 year old girl and will be 14 next Monday. I am
really into sports and can never really find a book I
like. . . . This is the first time I have ever emailed an
author or even wanted to. . . . Your book just really
spoke to me.
Sincerely,
Mikka, thirteen-year-old reader

Wildthorn
Jane Eagland
They strip her naked, of everything—undo her whalebone corset hook by hook.
Locked away in Wildthorn Hall—a madhouse—they take her identity. She is now
called Lucy Childs. She has no one; she has nothing. But she is still seventeen—
still Louisa Cosgrove, isn’t she? Who has done this unthinkable deed? Louisa must
free herself, in more ways than one, and muster up the courage to be her true self,
all the while solving her own twisted mystery and falling into an unconventional
love . . .
Originally published in the UK, this well-paced, provocative romance pushes on
boundaries—both literal and figurative—and, do beware: it will bind you, too.
Born in Essex, Jane Eagland taught English in secondary schools for many years. After
receiving an MA in creative writing, she now divides her time between writing and tutoring. Wildthorn is her first novel, inspired by true stories of women who were incarcerated in
asylums in the nineteenth century. Jane lives in Lancashire, England, in a house with a view
of the fells.

Adios, Nirvana
Conrad Wesselhoeft
When you piss off a bridge into a snowstorm, it feels like you’re connecting with
eternal things. Paying homage to something or someone. But who? The Druids?
Walt Whitman? No, I pay homage to one person only, my brother, my twin.

In life. In death.

Telemachus.
Since the death of his brother, Jonathan’s been losing his grip on reality. Last
year’s Best Young Poet and gifted guitarist is now Taft High School’s resident tortured artist, when he bothers to show up. He’s on track to repeat eleventh grade,
but his English teacher, his principal, and his crew of Thicks (who refuse to be
seniors without him) won’t sit back and let him fail.
Conrad Wesselhoeft lives with his three children and a big, grinning poodle named
Django in west Seattle. “Much of Adios, Nirvana,” he writes, “was inspired by my son, Kit,
and his many friends, who tromp through my kitchen, jam on guitars, and leave behind a
trail of laughter, crumbs, and ketchup stains.”

A Not Scary Story
About Big Scary Things
C. K. Williams Illustrated by Gabi Swiatkowska
A boy walks through a forest full of snakes and wolves and bears, but this boy
isn’t afraid because he knows they’ll stay out of his way. The scary monster in this
forest won’t stay out of his way, though. He pops out at the boy and growls! But
the brave boy just keeps walking along because he doesn’t believe in monsters.
This sets the monster to begging and begging for the boy to believe in him, even
just a smidge. Will the boy ever agree?
This unusual monster story, with thrills and fangs and roars, shows that a little
confidence and a lot of courage can shrink fears to a size that might even be a
little cuddly.
C. K. Williams is a Pulitzer Prize– and National Book Award–winning poet who first told
this story to his grandsons. He divides his time between France and Princeton, New Jersey.

Lives of the Presidents
Fame, Shame (and What the Neighbors Thought)
Kathleen Krull Illustrated by Kathryn Hewitt
The president of the United States has always been in the public eye—but do
we know these men as well as we think we do? What were they like as fathers,
husbands, and neighbors? What did they do for fun, what were their favorite
foods, and how did they take care of their hair? Lives of the Presidents looks at bad
habits, silly nicknames, and strange pets, examining the high points, low points,
and times in between of each president.
The popular Lives of the Presidents was originally published in 1998 as part of
the successful Lives of . . . series of collective biographies. Now fully updated, it
includes new chapters and artwork for Barack Obama and George W. Bush, along
with a fabulous new jacket and refreshed design.

The PS Brothers
Maribeth Boelts
Russell and Shawn call themselves the PS Brothers: P is for poop, S is for scoop, and
Brothers is because they’re best friends. Scooping poop is the fastest way to earn
money to buy a puppy. These two are crazy about dogs. And they’re sure that
once their puppy grows into a tough dog, no one will ever pick on them for being
weak or poor again. Unfortunately, getting a puppy is not that easy. Russell and
Shawn don’t count on uncovering a dogfighting ring—and that can bust apart a
dream faster than a dog can sniff out a bone.
But doing the right thing might still get them what they want—and maybe even
more.
Maribeth Boelts has written many picture books, including Those Shoes, which was a
Charlotte Zolotow Award Honor book. The PS Brothers is her first novel. She lives in Cedar
Falls, Iowa. Visit her website at www.maribethboelts.com.

Dillweed’s Revenge
A Deadly Dose of Magic
Florence Parry Heide Illustrated by Carson Ellis
Dillweed’s parents go on adventures and leave him behind with Umblud the
butler and Perfidia the maid, who treat him like their slave. Neither Umblud and
Perfidia nor the parents appreciate Dillweed’s cherished pet, a creature named
Skorped. When they threaten Skorped’s life and well-being, Dillweed opens his
black box and casts the runes, which releases smoky monsters who do the dirty
deeds. And then it’s Dillweed's turn to go on adventures.
Filled with nasty characters, beautiful details, and subtle humor, this stylish
book follows in the tradition of the deliciously dark work of Edward Gorey, so
Dillweed’s happy ending undoubtedly means the end for someone else.

“A delightful tale of revenge.
And empowerment.
As wickedly fun as Gorey, Dahl,
or Belloc.”
—Lane Smith
“The story is unnerving, the
characters are unpleasant, and
the artwork is unsettling. I am
going to read this book again
and again.”
—Lemony Snicket

Florence Parry Heide is an award-winning author of more than a hundred children’s
books, such as the Treehorn series, illustrated by Edward Gorey. She lives in Kenosha,

As Confederate and Union soldiers take over their town, the local residents can do
little more than hunker down in their homes while cannon and gunfire explode
around them. But the battles are not only fought between soldiers. At home,
fourteen-year-old Tacy and her disabled brother David lock horns as he wrestles
with his desire to go to war. He has strong principles, and it tortures him to allow
others to fight while he does nothing.
In the aftermath of this great and terrible battle in which so many soldiers
sacrificed their lives for their beliefs, David gives his last full measure . . . and
leaves Tacy struggling to make sense of it all.

Crazy
Han Nolan
Fifteen-year-old Jason has fallen upon bad times—his mother has died and his
father has succumbed to mental illness. As he tries to hold his crazy father and
their crumbling home together, Jason relies on a host of imaginary friends for
guidance as he stumbles along trying not to draw attention to his father’s deteriorating condition.
Both heartbreaking and funny, Crazy lives up to the intense and compelling
characters Han Nolan is praised for. As Jason himself teeters on the edge of
insanity, Nolan uncovers the clever coping system he develops for himself and
throws him a lifeline in the guise of friendship.
Han Nolan won the National Book Award for Dancing on the Edge. Her novel Send Me
Down a Miracle was a National Book Award finalist. She lives with her husband on the East

more Prosper English. But when his best friend, Sonja, is attacked, it’s up to him
to figure out who was behind it. Before he knows it, Cadel is crossing oceans and
continents, barrelling back into the depths of the criminal activity he thought he’d
left behind, and coming face-to-face with Prosper English once again. Can Cadel
track down Prosper before it’s too late? And what rules will he have to break in
the process?

conclusion to the high-tech trilogy that
continued with Genius Squad.

An excerpt from The Genius Wars:
Sitting in front of the safe-house computer, Cadel examined the image displayed on its screen.
There could be no doubt that he was looking at Prosper English. Despite the poor quality
of the digital video recording, Prosper’s high cheekbones and lanky frame were unmistakable.
So was his tweed jacket. Prosper had always favored professorial outfits, and Cadel recognized
this one—which also featured a matching waistcoat and leather elbow patches. But why had
Prosper chosen it? Why hadn’t he disguised himself? If he had shaved his head or donned a
hooded anorak, he might never have been detected. Yet he’d kept on wearing the same old
clothes, in shot after shot after shot.
What on earth was he up to?

The Secret of Ka
Christopher Pike
One minute Sara’s bored on vacation in Istanbul. The next, she’s unearthed a
flying carpet that cleverly drags her to the mysterious Island of the Djinn—or
genies. By her side is Amesh, a cute boy she has a crush on but doesn’t yet trust.
When Amesh learns the secret of invoking djinn, he loses control. He swears he’ll
call upon only one djinn and make one wish. The plan sounds safe enough. But
neither Sara nor Amesh is any match for the monster that swells before them.
It hypnotizes Amesh, compelling him to steal Sara’s flying carpet and leave her
stranded on the island.
Discovering the carpet has sparked a new path for Sara, one that will
lead her to battle creatures even deadlier than djinn. In this fight, Sara can save
mankind, herself, or the boy she cares for. Who will she be forced to sacrifice?

An excerpt from The Secret of Ka

Trakur drew himself up high. I had to bend my head back to follow. If his eyes had
been cold before, they were now ice. Crystal shards from an arctic cave, they looked
like they could slice me open.
“You lie,” he said. “You are the one who plays the charades. You have been interested in my wife from the start. It is she you want, not I.” He added in a deadly tone,
“You must know the penalty of lying to a djinn such as me.”
“But Your Majesty! When did I lie? I was merely trying to . . . AHH!”
A burning pain erupted in my right side. It was so intense that I feared to lower
my eyes and see what was causing it. But then I saw the invisible blade was no longer
invisible. The carpet’s warning had come back to me too late.
A silver sword had punched out of the hilt I was holding like a switchblade loaded
on a spring. It had pierced my side, and I was bleeding badly. Yet the blood was not
going to waste. The blade’s shiny surface somehow absorbed it by the mouthful.
With the amount of blood I was losing, the knife had probably pierced an organ.
If I tried to pull it out, my wound would change into a red geyser and I would die in
seconds.
“I want to make my first wish now, Trakur Analova Ta!” I cried.

and this collection of classic carols!
CD of 10 holiday songs.

e e
e

Singer, songwriter, and guitarist Joyce Raskin of the popular band Scarce provides the original music.

She says, "Our band has reinterpreted H. A. Rey's traditional Christmas carols as a folksy, lighthearted, and

kid-friendly set of recordings—a little Carter family, Mazzy Star, and Buddy Holly mixed together. We hope
it's musical fun for kids of all ages."

H. A. Rey (1898–1977) was born in Germany and emigrated to the United States during World War II.
He wrote, illustrated, and designed many books for children and adults, including this book of carols, and is
perhaps best known as the creator of Curious George.

Christmas carols featured in the book include the following:
“O Christmas Tree”; “Good King Wenceslas”; “Deck the Hall”; “We Three Kings”; “I Saw
Three Ships”; “O Come, All Ye Faithful”; “The First Noel”; “O Little Town of Bethlehem”;
“Hark! the Herald Angels Sing”; and “Silent Night”

Happy Easter,
Curious George

George and the man with the yellow hat decide to visit the park on a fine Easter
morning. George sees the children in the park engaged in all kinds of activities,

wait to join in the fun! He enjoys playing with colors and patterns on his eggs,
but when he sees a man who seems to be losing decorated eggs, George decides
to help as only a monkey can. But wait—can George help find the missing Easter
Bunny, too?

paperback edition with stickers.
Susan Meddaugh’s

Martha Says It with
Flowers
Martha always seems to do the wrong thing
around Helen’s Grandma Lucille, like treading
on her favorite hat. To prove that she really is
a considerate dog, she decides to do something
extra special for Grandma’s birthday. But
finding the right gift for a human is harder
than it looks, especially when Martha’s idea of
the perfect present is a wormy apple or slab of
bacon!
This full-length picture book is now in
paperback and includes stickers with thoughtful
sayings and fun images to decorate your own
cards for special occasions.

Martha talks her way into meeting the president—and
now the whole country is counting on her.
Susan Meddaugh’s

White House Dog
The president and his family are looking for a
dog to live in the White House. Martha knows
the perfect pup for the job, and makes an
informative call to the White House. But when
the president finds out about Martha’s speaking
ability he wants her to come to the White House
right away! Martha feels it’s her duty to report,
but she already has a family. Whatever could the
president want with her?
Includes a glossary of democratic vocabulary
such as nominate, appoint, and nation and fun
word activities.

splashing in puddles. And the one way they are alike the most is in their love for
each other.
Celebrate the joys of having siblings with the board book edition of David
McPhail’s charming tribute to sisters. Perfect for all ages!

Katy and the Big Snow
Board Book
Virginia Lee Burton
“Bright, vigorous pictures with plenty of action and endless detail portray Katy
at work for the Highway Department of the City of Geoppolis.”—Horn Book

plucky little plow much opportunity to shine. Then a blizzard blankets the city
and it is Katy to the rescue as she digs out the city and helps everyone in need.
A classic winter tale about Katy’s determination and her “chug, chug, chug”
endurance, this board book edition, with shiny red foil on the cover, will be
enjoyed by children and parents alike.

Who’s Coming for Christmas?
A Holly Jolly Lift-the-Flap Book
Kay Winters Illustrated by Jeannie Winston
This lift-the-flap book is the perfect way to introduce toddlers to one of the most
magical holidays of the year. Santa’s coming, of course! And he’s flying in on a
sled led by reindeer. Careening over rooftops, he lands on one lucky little girl’s
roof. But not before this little girl gets a chance to prepare—she listens to carols,
bakes cookies, trims the tree, readies Santa’s treat, and even tries against her will
to get some sleep. All of this yuletide action is hidden under darling Christmas
present flaps, until the end, where a beautifully decorated Christmas tree is
waiting to reveal Santa.

new perspectives and a depth of detail in structure and atmosphere.
This impeccably researched volume not only is a necessary addition to the

Audrey Wood Illustrated by Don Wood

“Beauty aside, this also has a panache and sly wit that will please children
and their parents, who will be called on to peruse the book again and again.”

King Bidgood refuses to leave his bathtub and rule the kingdom. One by one, the
knight, the queen, the duke, and eventually all the members of the king’s court
attempt—and fail—to persuade King Bidgood to leave his sumptuous bath. Why
King Bidgood finally leaves his bathtub makes a delightful surprise ending to this

Jamaica wants to shoot baskets at the playground
with her big brother, Ossie, but he doesn’t want
her tagging along. Even when she proves she can
shoot just as well as the boys, they won’t let her

more harm than good at first, but Jamaica knows
how it feels to be left out, and she’s willing to let
anyone tag along.

Petal’s Problems
Lauren Baratz-Logsted

Oh, no. Oh, no. Oh, no. May is almost over and that means only one thing: June,
Petal’s month, is about to begin. For most people, this would be a good thing. But
not our dear Petal. As far as Petal is concerned, it could stay May forever.
At least the sisters have some excitement in their future: The wedding of Aunt
Martha and Uncle George will bring them, the Petes, and the cats to Paris, where
fun—and a little bit of danger—will come as surely as the changing of the month.

Dying to Meet You
43 Old Cemetery Road: Book One
Kate Klise Illustrated by M. Sarah Klise
“Plenty of fun lurks in this ghost-story comedy. . . . A quirky,
comedic romp.”—Kirkus Reviews
Ignatius B. Grumply moves into the Victorian mansion at 43 Old Cemetery Road
hoping to find some peace and quiet so he can crack a wicked case of writer’s block.
But 43 Old Cemetery Road is already occupied by eleven-year-old Seymour, his cat,
Shadow, and an irritable ghost named Olive. It’s hard to say who is more outraged.
But a grumpy old ghost just might inspire this grumpy old man—and the abandoned kid? Well, let’s just say his last name’s Hope.
Kate Klise and M. Sarah Klise have collaborated on several picture books and a number
of popular middle grade novels, including the Regarding the . . . series, Trial by Journal, and
Letters from Camp, an ALA Best Book for Young Adults. Kate, who is a correspondent for
People magazine, lives in Norwood, Missouri. Sarah, who is an art teacher, lives in Berkeley,

Chet Gecko’s investigations often show him the seamy underbelly of school life, but
this case throws him for a loop. A deadly stink bomb is unleashed, a school building
falls to rubble, money goes missing from the principal’s office, and that’s just a start.
Chet’s endurance for trouble is tested, but so is his loyalty: Someone is trying to get
his mongoose janitor pal, Maureen DeBree, fired. A true-blue P.I. doesn’t take that
kind of monkey business lying down. Standing up, maybe.
And stand up he will—to some very shifty school bullies. Chet keeps digging for
the truth like a mole after an earthworm sandwich. Oh, foolish detective.
Bruce Hale is the author of fifteen Chet Gecko mysteries, as well as Snoring Beauty, illustrated by Howard Fine. A popular speaker, teacher, and storyteller for children and adults, he
lives in Santa Barbara, California. Visit his website at www.brucehale.com.

Rome Antics
David Macaulay
A pigeon carrying an important message takes the reader on a unique tour through
Rome. As we follow the path of this somewhat wayward bird, we discover that Rome
is a place where past and present live side by side. Every time a corner is turned
there is a surprise, just as every turn of the page brings a new perspective. This juxtaposition of ancient and modern, as seen with David Macaulay’s ingenious vision,
gives the reader an imaginative and informative journey through this wondrous city.
Also by David Macaulay:

David Macaulay’s books have sold millions of copies in the United States alone and have
been translated into a dozen languages. He has been the recipient of the Caldecott Medal and

It was spring of 1877 when Sound of Running
Feet saw the white people panning gold in the little creek that fed the Wallowa River. She brought
word of them to her father, Chief Joseph of the
Nez Perce. Less than a year
later, the life the Nez Perce had known for
generations was destroyed. Through the eyes of
the chief’s daughter, a brave and independent
young woman, readers share every twist in this
historic tale of cruelty, heroism, romance, and
betrayal.
A writer in her own right, Elizabeth Hall
completed this story after the death of her husband,
Scott O’Dell.

Scott O’Dell
“The very simplicity of the writing,
at times almost terse, makes more vivid the tragedy of the eviction and the danger

This Newbery Honor book tells the story of
fourteen-year-old Bright Morning and her friend
Running Bird. One morning, as they watch their
sheep at pasture, Bright Morning sees two men
riding toward her. In less than a heartbeat she
knows who they are: Spanish slavers come to
steal her and Running Bird away.

Scott O’Dell
“O’Dell, like a conjurer, weaves worlds out of
words . . . [He] doesn’t spare readers any of the
grim realities of slavery; the details . . . are at
times almost unbearably painful . . . The ending .
. . is so powerful, so searing, it will leave
readers stunned.” —Publishers Weekly
It is a frightening new world for Raisha. Snatched
from her home in Africa and carried across the
sea in a plague-ridden ship, she finds herself
standing on the platform of a slave market in the
West Indies, staring down into a ring of strange
white faces. And so begins her life as a slave.

The Cresbard school means a lot to sixth-grader Rachel Johnson. It means classes
with a beloved teacher, important band rehearsals for the upcoming concert in
Chicago, and time to hang out with Winnie and Darren and the rest of the town
kids. For a twelve-year-old living on a remote prairie farm with no phone, school
means connection. And that connection is about to be severed. The most dangerous
winter that Rachel has ever known is about to descend on Cresbard, marooning
her on the farm and keeping her from the school she so desperately loves. Then, in
a surprising turn of events, Rachel’s dad agrees to fly his three oldest daughters to
town so they can continue the school year. Rachel will be boarding in a hotel with
no parents, no rules, and no chores. Her choice of desserts every night, two-stepping
with Darren Baxter at the school dance . . . will Rachel ever be able to return to farm
life after this?
Bonnie Geisert grew up on a farm near Cresbard, South Dakota, and her childhood adventures there inspired many of the events in her Prairie trilogy. Ms. Geisert now lives in a small

Here is the true history of a friendship that almost wasn’t. John Leahr and Herb
Heilbrun were born in Cincinnati, Ohio, in 1920. In the third grade, they were
classmates—not friends—because Herb was white and John was black. Both were
twenty-one when they joined the Air Force during World War II but they never met
on the ground because only in the air were black and white American fliers allowed
to mix. It took them fifty years to meet again. Old friends at last, Herb and John
launched a mission to tell people why race once made all the difference and why it
can’t anymore.
John Fleischman is a science writer for the American Society for Cell Biology and a freelance writer for various magazines, including Discover, Muse, and Air & Space Smithsonian. He
lives in Ohio.

Karma Bites

This was powerful stuff. I was seriously spooked. And seriously stoked. Flip me out. I had
real, live magic in my house. And strange as that was, it was also totally, utterly, majorly
major. Magic could come in super handy in middle school. Opportunity had knocked
and I was going to open the door and let it charge on in.
Life seems to have it in for Franny Flanders. Her best friends aren’t speaking, her
parents just divorced, and her hippie grandmother has moved in. The only karma
Franny’s got is bad karma. Then Franny gets her hands on a box of magic recipes
that could fix all of her problems. It could even change the world! Finally, life is
looking up. But Franny is about to learn that magic and karma aren’t to be played
with. When you mess with the universe, it can bite back in unexpected ways. Ouch!
Karma Bites is a first novel by Stacy Kramer and Valerie Thomas. Kramer is a comedy
writer whose television credits include Lizzie McGuire and Less Than Perfect. She lives in

The Day of the Pelican
Katherine Paterson
Meli Lleshi is positive that her drawing of her teacher with his pelican nose started
it all. The Lleshis are Albanians living in Kosovo, a country trying to fight off Serbian
oppressors, and suddenly they are homeless refugees. Old and young alike, they find
their courage tested by hunger, illness, the arduous journey, and danger on every
side. Then, unexpectedly, they are brought to America by a church group and begin
a new life in a small Vermont town. The events of 9/11 bring more challenges for
this Muslim family—but this country is their new home and there can be no turning
back. A compassionate, powerful novel by a master storyteller.
Katherine Paterson has twice won both the Newbery Medal and the National Book Award.
She received the 1998 Hans Christian Andersen Medal, as well as the 2006 Astrid Lindgren
Memorial Award. The Day of the Pelican is based on the experiences of a refugee family that
her church sponsored to the United States. She was recently appointed as Ambassador of
Children’s Books. Visit Katherine Paterson at www.terabithia.com.

Kids at Work:
Lewis Hine and the Crusade
Against Child Labor

Middle-class urban youth, migrant farm laborers, boxcar kids, children whose families found themselves struggling for survival . . . all Depression-era young people
faced challenges: demoralized parents, inadequate food and shelter, schools they
couldn’t attend because they had to work, schools that simply closed their doors.
Even so, life had its bright spots—like favorite games and radio shows—and many
young people remained optimistic about the future. Drawing on memoirs, diaries,
and letters, and richly illustrated with classic archival photographs, this book by one
of the most celebrated authors of nonfiction places the Great Depression in context
and shows young readers its human face.
Russell Freedman received the Newbery Medal for Lincoln: A Photobiography. He is also the
recipient of three Newbery Honors, the Sibert Medal, and the Laura Ingalls Wilder Award. Mr.
Freedman lives in New York City.

The Voice That Challenged a Nation
Marian Anderson and the Struggle for Equal Rights
Russell Freedman
This insightful, award-winning account of the great African American vocalist looks at
her life and musical career in the context of the civil rights movement in this country. Drawing on Anderson’s own writings and other contemporary accounts, Russell
Freedman shows readers a singer pursuing her art despite the social constraints that
limited the careers of black performers at the time. Marian Anderson came to stand
for all black artists—and for all Americans of color—when she gave her landmark
1939 performance on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, which signaled the end of
segregation in the arts.

Emi and the Rhino Scientist
Mary Kay Carson Photographs by Tom Uhlman
Terri Roth trudges through the Sumatran jungle, looking for a rare Sumatran rhino.
It’s the world’s smallest rhino and one of the most endangered mammals on the
planet. Suddenly Terri spots a young female rhino; the stocky animal is covered in
reddish hair, and her snout sports two stubby horns. She walks right up to Terri.
The scientist slowly reaches out her hand and touches the rhino’s big nose. The wild
rhino’s curiosity and friendliness remind Terri of Emi, the female Sumatran rhino
who lived at the Cincinnati Zoo where Terri works. Terri worked tirelessly with Emi
to help save Sumatran rhinos from extinction—one calf at a time.
Mary Kay Carson and Tom Uhlman first wrote about and photographed Emi for an article about breeding captive rhinos in 2001. Now they are married and live with their beloved
dog, Ruby, in a century-old house in Cincinnati, Ohio, surrounded by deer, hawks, woodchucks, songbirds, and other creatures (but no rhinos).

Ever since her best friend was killed in a car accident, seventeen-year-old
Catherine has been haunted by thoughts of that terrible night. So, when on a visit
to her grandmother’s church, Catherine meets a handsome young stranger who
tells her he can channel the dead, she’s eager for him to put her in touch with her
lost friend in hopes that she can finally put her mind at ease.
But the stranger may not be all that he seems. Catherine is the only one who
seems to notice when he’s around. And an elderly woman warns her to stay away
from the church where she meets with him. Most alarming of all, he seems to be
connected to a number of girls who have mysteriously disappeared—and they all
bear a striking resemblance to Catherine.
Despite her misgivings, Catherine is desperate for the stranger to help her make
contact with her dead friend. Will she risk meeting him—even if it means putting
her own life in danger?
Eve Bunting is a beloved children’s author who has written more than two hundred
books for young people. She lives in Pasadena, California.

Support Group

“Equal parts problem novel,

Catherine Jinks
Think vampires are romantic, sexy, and powerful? Think again. Vampires are
dead. And unless they want to end up staked, they have to give up fanging
people, admit their addiction, join a support group, and reform themselves.
Nina Harrison, fanged at fifteen and still living with her mother, hates the
Reformed Vampire Support Group meetings every Tuesday night. Even if she
does appreciate Dave, who was in a punk band when he was alive, nothing
exciting ever happens. That is, until one of the group members is mysteriously
destroyed by a silver bullet. With Nina (determined to prove that vamps aren’t
useless or weak) and Dave (secretly in love with Nina) at the helm, the misfit
vampires soon band together to track down the hunter, save a werewolf, and
keep the world safe from the likes of themselves.

The intrepid Jacky Faber, having once again eluded British authorities, heads west,
hoping that no one will recognize her in the wilds of America. There she tricks the
tall-tale hero Mike Fink out of his flatboat, equips it as a floating casino showboat,
and heads south to New Orleans, battling murderous bandits, British soldiers, and
other scoundrels along the way. Will Jacky’s carelessness and impulsive actions
ultimately cause her beloved Jaimy to be left in her wake?

Dead Is Just a Rumor
Marlene Perez
As the creepy little town of Nightshade prepares to celebrate its two hundredth
anniversary—on Halloween, of course—many of its paranormal residents are
receiving mysterious blackmail letters. Psychic teen Daisy Giordano and her sisters
set out to find out who is behind the threats. But launching an investigation isn’t
easy for Daisy with her overprotective father watching her every move. Though
she is happy to have him back after the years he spent being held captive by an
anti-paranormal group called the Scourge, Dad is having a difficult time adjusting to home life—and the fact that his little girl is now a senior in high school. He
even disapproves of Daisy’s boyfriend, Ryan. Can their relationship take the strain?
And Daisy’s got even more on her plate: A talented amateur cook, she has won
cooking lessons with celebrity chef Circe Silvertongue. After nosing around (with
a little help from Circe’s pet pig), Daisy begins to suspect that the temperamental
chef has got more secrets than just her ingredients . . .
The fourth installment in this favorite series is full of surprises and scares!

a spooky, fun new installment!
Have you heard? Teens and tweens can’t
get enough of the Dead Is series!
“I read Dead Is the New Black in a day and begged my
mother to go to the store that same night to get the second, and finished that the next day. I read Twilight over
the summer (my friends made me) and I think Ryan is
100000000x better than Edward!”—Jilian, age 13

“I am your biggest fan ever for the Dead Is series. I
can’t get enough of it! Can you please please please write
another one!!!!! For my own good!”—Joana, age 13

“I am your #1 fan! One night I just wanted to keep
reading because Dead Is So Last Year was so good, and I
read until 11:30 p.m. and almost missed my bus in the
morning for school! But I stayed up late for a good reason. I do not regret it!”—Meghan, age 12

“I thought Twilight was going to be my favorite book
forever but I had to change my mind after I read just
halfway through Dead Is the New Black! I know I speak
for a lot of people when I say I can’t wait for the next
two books to come out!”—Melissa, age 13

“Turning the page to one of your books makes me
excited and at the same time sad. I want to know what
happens next but when I turn the page I’m getting
closer to the end. :( I love how you incorporate real
life situations and at the same time it’s like a fantasy.
I know for sure that when I get older I am moving to
Nightshade!!!”—Maddie, age 12

“These books are addicting and the characters are so
real, I sometimes wish I could go to their town. I can’t
wait for more books in the series!”—Angie, age 14

“I am your BIGGEST FAN IN THE WORLD! I’m sure
you get that a lot, but I’ve read your Dead Is series, and
finished them in less than 24 hours each. I guess you
could call me obsessed.”—Allison, age 14

In an explosion of his own making, Lucius blew his arms off. Now he has hooks.
He chose hooks so that everyone would know he was different, so he would scare
even himself.
Then he meets Aurora. The hooks don’t scare her. They don’t make any difference at all to her.
But they remind Lucius of the beast he is inside. Perhaps Aurora is his Beauty,
destined to set his soul free from its suffering.
Or maybe she’s a girl who needs love just like he does.

It Started with a Dare
Lindsay Faith Rech
Self-proclaimed nobody CG Silverman sees her move to an upscale new school
as her chance to be somebody different. Her devil-may-care attitude attracts the
in-clique, and before CG realizes it, a routine game of truth or dare launches her
to iconic status. While this rebel image helps secure CG’s newfound popularity, it
also propels her through a maze of unprecedented chaos, with each new lie and
every dare opening doors that, in most cases, were better left shut. CG is on a
collision course with disaster. Will she be able to keep up the façade? Or will the
whole world find out she’s a fraud?
Lindsay Faith Rech is a newcomer to young adult fiction. She lives in Holland,

The Fetch
Laura Whitcomb

H “Part historical fiction, part romance, part spiritual journey. . . . The rich
descriptions, particularly of the exquisitely imagined afterlife, are exceptionally
drawn, as are the sympathetic characters and the unusual premise. A challenging
book with an intriguing conclusion, this will lead thoughtful readers to spirited
discussions.”—Booklist, starred review
“The title’s genre-crossing nature will make it appealing to fans of
several different categories: supernatural stories, mysteries, historical fiction,
and/or romance.”—Kirkus Reviews
Calder is a Fetch, a death escort, the first of his kind to step from Heaven back to
Earth. The first to fall in love with a mortal girl. But when he climbs backwards
out of that Death Scene, into the chaos of the Russian Revolution, he tears a
wound in the ghost realm, where the spirits begin a revolution of their own.

The Counseling
Marley Gibson
Kendall has just discovered who Emily really is, lost her boyfriend, and nearly
died doing the thing she loves most—ghost hunting. It’s time to take a break and
try to reconcile all the changes she’s going through. So Kendall heads to the Sierra
Mountains, where there’s a camp especially for young people with gifts such as
hers. It’s a time for reflection and self-discovery.
But when she gets to California, she once again finds restless spirits—and the
boy in her last vision. It may be the end of one chapter of her life and the beginning of a new one.
Marley Gibson has written all of the Ghost Huntress books, as well as cowrote The Other
Side with Patrick Burns and Dave Schrader. She lives in Boston. You can visit her at

Young Charley Darwin hated school—he much preferred to be outside studying
birds’ eggs, feathers, and insects. And so, at the age of twenty-one, he boarded a
ship called HMS Beagle and spent five thrilling but dangerous years sailing around
the world, studying plant and animal life that was beyond anything he could have
imagined.
This is the story of the unconventional adventures of the author of the legendary book The Origin of Species—his restless childhood, unrequited teenage love,
and a passion for studying nature that was so great, Darwin would sacrifice everything to pursue it.
Carolyn Meyer’s many award-winning novels include Mary, Bloody Mary, an ALA Best
Book for Young Adults; and Anastasia: The Last Grand Duchess: Russia, 1914, a New York

“Both universal and unique, familiar and eye-opening. Here is a worthy
send-off for a one-of-a-kind character.”—Horn Book
After five months of sheer absolute insanity,
my life was finally getting back to normal.

Football season may be over, but basketball is about to begin, and if D.J. thinks
she can escape the attention—and the pressure—her star-power brings, she is
mistaken. The entire school has rallied around her as leader of the team, and D.J.
has major decisions to make about next year. Then there’s a certain Red Bend
junior who’s keen for romance and karaoke.
And don’t even ask about Brian Nelson, whom she is done with, thank you very
much.
Catherine Murdock grew up on a small farm in Connecticut, where she wisely avoided
all sports involving hand-eye coordination. She now lives in suburban Philadelphia with
her husband, two brilliant unicycling children, several cats, and a one-acre yard that she
is slowly transforming into a wee but flourishing ecosystem. You can visit her website at

Flash Burnout
L. K. Madigan

H “With just enough humor to diffuse the tension and the art and science
of photography as a backdrop, this rich romance explores the complexities of
friendship and love, and the all-too-human limitations of both. It’s a sobering,
compelling, and satisfying read.”—Booklist, starred review
Fifteen-year-old Blake has a girlfriend and a friend who’s a girl. One of them loves
him, the other one needs him.
When he snapped a picture of a street person for his photography homework,
Blake never dreamed that the woman in the photo was his friend Marissa’s longlost meth-addicted mom. Blake’s participation in the ensuing drama opens up a
world of trouble, both for him and for Marissa. He spends the next few months
trying to reconcile the conflicting roles of Boyfriend and Friend.
In a tangle of life and death, love and loyalty, Blake will emerge with a more
sharply defined snapshot of himself.
L. K. Madigan lives in Portland, Oregon, with her husband, son, two big black dogs,
hundreds of books, and a couple of vintage cars. You can visit her website at

A Visual Guide to the Amazing Behaviors of Your
Newborn and Growing Baby
Kevin Nugent Photographs by Abelardo Morell
Through intimate access to babies and their families, international expert on
infant-parent communication Dr. Kevin Nugent and acclaimed photographer
Abelardo Morell capture the amazingly precocious communications strategies
babies demonstrate from the moment they are born.
Your Baby Is Speaking to You illustrates the full range of behaviors—early smiling
to startling, feeding to sleeping, listening to your voice and recognizing your face.
The newest research—including information on subtle and fleeting behaviors not
seen or explained in any other book—illuminates the meaning of the things babies
do that concern and delight new parents.
Kevin Nugent, Ph.D., is director of the Brazelton Institute at Children’s Hospital, Bos­ton,

Pukka
The Pup After Merle
Ted Kerasote
Since the publication of the best-selling Merle’s Door, Ted Kerasote has received
thousands of e-mails asking two questions: "Have you gotten another dog?" and
"Are you writing a new book?" Pukka: The Pup After Merle answers both, in the
most heartwarming way.
Told in Pukka’s charming voice and accompanied by more than 200 photos,
Pukka: The Pup After Merle tells the story of how Ted found Pukka, recounting
the early days of their bonding as they explore Kelly and the wider world. Walks
become hikes and hikes become climbs, their adventures culminating in a rugged
wilderness journey that teaches both Pukka and Ted something new about the
dog-human partnership.
Filled with stunning images of the West, Pukka is a love story as well as Ted’s
take on raising a puppy. It will do pictorially what Merle did with words—show
how dogs thrive when treated as peers while illustrating the many ways that any
dog opens the door to our hearts.
Ted Kerasote is the author of many books, including the national bestseller Merle’s Door:
Lessons from a Freethinking Dog. This is Pukka‘s first book.
