 The Apple Orchard Riddle by Margaret McNamara, illustrated by G. Brian Karas

Apple Orchard Riddle

Learning has never been as much fun as it is for the kids in Mr. Tiffin’s class–in How Many Seeds in a Pumpkin the did a classroom experiment and learned about skip counting and estimation and most of all had fun with science and math. In this brand new story the class goes on a field trip to an apple orchard where they learn just about everything a kid needs to know about apples and harvesting them. G. Brian Karas illustrations bring this story to life, it’s perfect for family reading or for the classroom.

Dogs in the bus, the classroom and at play, and it could be a great back to school gift too. Ron and Amy Schmidt are also the genius behind the companion title Loose Leashes.

The sequel to Don’t Expect Magic, and now Delaney is indeed a Fairy Godmother, and it’s time to try out the magic! But first she needs to find someone who needs a little magical assistance. She finds Jeni, but Jeni doesn’t want her help, what’s a Fairy Godmother to do, doesn’t everyone want a magical intervention? Apparently not. And did you know that Fairy Godmother’s can be a little competitive? Add a little romance and you just might, eventually, get a happy ending!


 Of Beast and Beauty by Stacey Jay

Of Beast and Beauty

I am a big fan of Stacey Jay’s Juliet Immortal and Romeo Redeemed, wildly clever and entertaining re-imagining of Romeo and Juliet, so I was thrilled when her equally clever re-imagined Beauty and the Beast came my way. A domed city, a blind princess, a mutant boy fighting to save his people. Fate brings these two together, but can love give them the strength to fight against the dark secrets from the past?


Still Star-Crossed by Melinda Taub

Still Star-Crossed

Romeo and Juliet are gone, but the war between the Montagues and the Capulets continues. It is concluded that the only way to stop the aggression is to literally marry the two families together. Easier said than done. It appears there may be a loveless marriage being planned between Romeo’s best friend Benvolio and Romeo’s first love (who rejected him) Rosaline. Will these two survivors be able to put the past behind and bring the city together? Perhaps love will win out in the end after all.
