Jack and the Beanstalk and the French Fries

Mark Teague

When Jack trades the family cow for a handful of magic beans, he gets more beans than he ever expected or wanted. It's bean porridge for breakfast! Bean salad for lunch! Bean chowder for dinner! It doesn't take long before Jack is tired of eating nothing but beans--no matter how nutritious! But just as he's about to chop down his magic beanstalk, he meets a grumpy giant, who is just as sick and tired of beans as he is. Together, Jack and the giant cook up a plan to plant a vegetable garden full of tomatoes, corn, carrots, and russet potatoes that's bound to satisfy everyone. Ages 3 to 8.

Jedi Academy: The Force Oversleeps

Jarrett J. Krosoczka

Victor is back at Jedi Academy and he truly defines the definition of sophomore, specifically a sophomore in a slump.

On top of that his sister, Christina is getting ready to graduate from Jedi Academy. She's always taken care of him, and Victor is lost now that she's not around as much. Can Victor roll with the (force) punches? Or will he revert to his old ways and go back to being the class clown? Ages 9 to 11.
