Fabulous new books for kids of all ages!
Click, Clack, Peep!
There’s more trouble on the farm, but Duck has nothing to do with it, for once. This time the trouble is a four-ounce puff of fluff who just won’t go to sleep, and whose play-with-me “peeps” are keeping the whole barnyard and Farmer Brown awake with him. How do you get a baby duck to hit the hay? Poor Farmer Brown will find out—and Duck might just find himself in trouble after all. Ages 3 to 8.
The Cottage in the Woods
Once upon a time, there was a girl with golden locks. But that’s just the beginning of this tale. The real story begins with a young bear named Ursula who has come to work as a governess at the Vaughn family "cottage". Although she is eager to instruct her young charge, Teddy, she is also frightened, especially when inexplicable things happen in the huge house after dark. And when a golden-haired girl, ragged and dirty, enters the home and soon becomes a beloved foster child - at least until evil characters try to take her away - Ursula discovers that in the Enchanted Forest, not every fairy tale is destined for a happily ever after. Ages 10 and up.
Fake Snakes and Weird Wizards
Hank’s sister Emily wants Ralph’s Reptile Show to perform at her birthday party more than anything, but Ralph is booked solid. So Hank comes up with a plan: he’ll disguise himself as a magician called The Westside Wizard and pull a snake from thin air! But when Hank’s true identity is revealed during his performance, his good deed might just turn into a huge disaster. Ages 6 to 8.
I Don't Want to Be a Frog
Frog wants to be anything but a slimy, wet, bug-eating frog. A cat, perhaps. Or a rabbit. An owl? Something cute and warm, at least. But when a hungry wolf arrives—a wolf who HATES eating frogs—our hero decides that maybe being himself isn’t so bad after all. Perfect for fans of Mo Willems and Jon Klassen. Ages 3 to 7.
The New Small Person
Elmore Green starts life as an only child, as many children do. He has a room to himself, where he can line up his precious things and nobody will move them one inch. But one day everything changes. When the new small person comes along, it seems that everybody might like it a bit more than they like Elmore Green. And when the small person knocks over Elmore’s things and even licks his jelly-bean collection, Elmore’s parents say that he can’t be angry because the small person is only small. Elmore wants the small person to go back to wherever it came from! Ages 3 to 8.
