A Triple Book Release Today!


Not only is it a double book release day today for Laurie Boyle Crompton's ADRENALINE CRUSH and Ruth McNally Barshaw's THE ELLIE MCDOODLE DIARIES: ELLIE FOR PRESIDENT, but it's also the paperback release of A. J. Paquette's PARADOX. Three books are freshly out in the world today! ADRENALINE CRUSH has been called an "enjoyable read" (VOYA) and PARADOX is full of "enough intrigue to keep even a non-science fiction reader engaged" (Library Media Connection). ELLIE FOR PRESIDENT, the last in the adorable Ellie McDoodle series, is "part journal, part graphic novel, all fun" (Kirkus Reviews). As always, we hope these books find their way into reader's hands and hearts!


Rhyme Schemer
K.A. Holt

"A strong anti-bullying message. Ideal for classroom use."~ School Library Journal. October release.

Not Very Scary
Carol Brendler

"In a delightful Halloween romp that’s part counting book, part tongue twister, Brendler and Pizzoli cram the pages with comically ghoulish chaos, and his smiley creatures (Melly included) are more cute than bloodcurdling." ~ Punlisher's Weekly, starred review. August release.

Go To Sleep, Little Farm
Mary Lyn Ray

"Ray’s lullaby reads like a sequel to Goodnight, Moon, with the same offbeat humor and incantatory language extending to the farm and the forest beyond it. ...Repeated, pleasingly surreal lines of verse convey the sense of drifting into slumber. ...It’s a keeper." ~ PW, starred review. September release.
