Whats New
A Very Fiona Christmas - Richard Cowdrey
It is Christmastime, and the zoo is sparkling with holiday! Amidst the snow, decorations, and mistletow, will Fiona the hippo be able to find the true meaning of Christmas? (E F Cow)
Hey Grandude! - Paul McCartney
A magical adventure from music legend Paul McCartney!

See the compass needle spin, the the magic fun begin! (E F McC)
Ho Ho Homework - Mylisa Larson
It is almost Christmas, and Jacks classroom has a new substitute teacher. There is something funny about Mr. Clausen...he seems awfully familiar...is it his long, white beard? Is it they way his laugh sounds a lot like "Ho, Ho, HO"? Or maybe it is his snack of milk and cookies...reindeer shaped cookies! (E F Lar)
Sulwe - Lupita Nyongo
New York Time Best Seller!

Sulwe has skin the color of midnight. She is darker than everyone in her family. She is darker than anyone in her school. Sulwe just wants to be beautiful and bright, like her mother and sister. Then a magical journey in the night sky opens her eyes and changes everything. (E F Nyo)
The Fowl Twins - Eoin Colfer
One week after their eleventh birthday, Artemis Fowls twin brothers, scientist Myles and force-of-nature Beckett, are left in the care of their house security system (NANNI) for a single night. That is all the time it takes for them to befriend a miniature troll who has clawed his way through the earths crust to the surface. Unfortunately for the troll, he is being chased by a nefarious nobleman and an interrogating nun (who both need the magical creature for their own gain) as well as a fairy trainee who has been assigned to protect him.

The boys and their new troll best friend escape and go on the run. Along the way they get shot at, kidnapped, buried, arrested, threatened, killed (temporarily), and discover that the strongest bond in the world is not the one forged by covalent electrons in adjacent atoms, but the one that exists between a pair of twins. (J F Col)
The Thank You Letter - Jane Cabrera
Graces thank you notes for her Birthday end up all over town bringing love and happiness into everyones lives. (E J Cab)
Torpedoed - Deborah Heilligman
As German bombs rained over England during World War II, British parents by the thousands sent their children out of the county to avoid harms way. In September 1940, passenger liner SS City of Benares set sail for Canada with one hundred children on board. When the warships escorting the Benares departed, a German submarine torpedoed what became known as the Childrens Ship. Out of tragedy, ordinary people became heroes. This is their story.
