  • Happy Narwhalidays

    by Ben Clanton Year Published: 2020


    Dive into three new stories about Narwhal's favorite time of the year! It's the festive season in the world wide waters, and Narwhal is looking forward to cozying up with a good book, singing and partying with pod pals and enjoying some warm waffle pudding. But most of all Narwhal is excited about the arrival of the Merry Mermicorn! According to Narwhal, she's part mermaid, part unicorn and completely mer-aculous! Jelly is of course skeptical about the existence of the "Mira-Miny-What-A Corn" . . . even when he receives a mysterious present. It must be from Narwhal. Now Jelly has to get the perfect gift, but finding a present for someone as unique as Narwhal is no easy feat, even when you have six tentacles. How will Jelly ever come up with a whaley great gift for a best pal who spreads cheer all through the year?

  • Ground Zero

    by Alan Gratz Year Published: 2021

    In time for the twentieth anniversary of 9/11, master storyteller Alan Gratz (Refugee) delivers a pulse-pounding and unforgettable take on history and hope, revenge and fear -- and the stunning links between the past and present.

    September 11, 2001, New York City: Brandon is visiting his dad at work, on the 107th floor of the World Trade Center. Out of nowhere, an airplane slams into the tower, creating a fiery nightmare of terror and confusion. And Brandon is in the middle of it all. Can he survive -- and escape?

    September 11, 2019, Afghanistan: Reshmina has grown up in the shadow of war, but she dreams of peace and progress. When a battle erupts in her village, Reshmina stumbles upon a wounded American soldier named Taz. Should she help Taz -- and put herself and her family in mortal danger?

    Two kids. One devastating day. Nothing will ever be the same.

  • Moo Moo in a Tutu

    by Tim Miller Year Published: 2017

    PreS-Gr 2-A bovine with big dreams and a dubious duck team up in this hilarious romp about a wild idea, a terribly executed plan, and unabashed determination. When Moo Moo gets "the best idea in the whole world," Mr. Quackers stops trimming his bonsai to respond hesitantly, "Another one?" He replies, further alarmed, "Are you for real!?!" when Moo Moo saunters out in a large handmade pink tutu. Without lessons or a backward glance, the cow and the duck head to the ballet and purchase two tickets. Moo Moo goes backstage while Mr. Quackers finds a seat in the audience. Unsurprisingly, the cow causes quite a commotion, eventually landing with a smash in the orchestral pit, while the duck dutifully claps and cheers. Moo Moo decides to retire while at the top of her game and soon enough has another brilliant idea: to forgo her solo career in favor of cajoling Mr. Quackers into an acrobatic circus duo. Miller's style is a mixture of comic strip and full-page illustrations done amusingly in pastels and thick black lines. The hilarious speech bubble asides from Mr. Quackers pair perfectly with the bold illustrations to create a winning format for this tale of pluck.
