When Lorelei's old school mysteriously burns
down, a new one appears practically overnight

playground and golden bowls of candy on every
desk? Gourmet meals in the cafeteria, served by
waiters? Optional homework and two recess periods
a day? It's every kids's dream.But Lorelei and
her new friend Andrew are pretty sure it's too
good to be true. Together they uncover a sinister
mystery, one with their teacher, the beautiful
Ms. Morrigan, at the very center.Then Andrew
disappears. Lorelei has to save him, even if that
means facing a past she'd like to forget and
taking on a teacher who's a real witch. From

to jail, he is uprooted from his home in Texas to
live with the father he has never met, his
father's wife, and his father's four "legitimate"
sons in Illinois. Frankie Joe is miserable.
Trying to adjust to his blended family proves too
much to bear, so Frankie Joe hatches a plot to
escape on his bike back home to Texas. For that
he needs money, and so Frankie Joe's Freaky Fast
Delivery Service is born. His deliveries win new
friends, a place in the rural Illinois community,
and a sense of achievement. But his planned
escape is destroyed by a heartbreaking betrayal,

loss. --Amazon.com

Most wars begin with a bang, or a blast, or an
enormous KABOOM! The war in room 43H began with a
simple question. Its time to decide who should
be the news anchor for the spring semester. Who
would like to do it? -Excerpt from book More
than anything, Francine Halata wants to be the
news anchor of the fourth-grade Media Club. But
when a new kid, Kansas Bloom, the self-proclaimed
King of Dares, is nominated for the anchor
position, the two students begin a two-week dare
war to win the job. The challenges start small
(licking a lizard, hanging upside down on the
monkey bars for all of recess), but soon
escalates to impressive feats. Francine and
Kansas attempt to outsmart each other every step
of the way. --From Publishers Weekly

The Acerra family had sixteen children, including
twelve ball-playing boys. It was the 1930s, and
many families had lots of kids. But only one had
enough to field a baseball team . . . with three
on the bench! The Acerras were the
longest-playing all-brother team in baseball
history. They loved the game, but more important,
they cared for and supported each other and
stayed together as a team. Nothing life threw
their waycould stop them. -From Amazon

In 1977, graduate student Irene Pepperberg walked
into a pet store and bought a year-old African
grey parrot. Because she was going to study him,
she decided to call him Alex--short for Avian
Learning EXperiment. At that time, most
scientists thought that the bigger the brain, the
smarter the creature they studied great apes and
dolphins. African greys, with their walnut-sized
"birdbrains," were pretty much ignored--until
Alex. His intelligence surprised everyone,
including Irene. He learned to count, add, and
subtract to recognize shapes, sizes, and colors
and to speak, and understand, hundreds of words.
These were things no other animal could do. Alex
wasn't supposed to have the brainpower to do
them, either. But he did them anyway. --From

leaves with color and a well-placed line.Then

This is the tale of a boy who needs a dog, and a
dog who needs a boy a match made in heaven, if
only the two can meet. Mark is a boy who needs a
dog. But he can't get his mom on board with his
plan. Buddy is a dog who needs a boy. Buddy has
an owner already, but not one who understands the
kind of love and care a dog needs. Mr. LaRue is a
neighbor who needs a community. He's alone all
the time in his huge old house and everyone needs
more than that. Over the course of a summer
thunderstorm and one chaotic town council
meeting, these three characters cross paths and
come together in a timeless tale ripe with
emotions, told in verse that resolves with love,
understanding, and a sense of belonging--plus a
place to play a game of fetch!
