Double Launch Event
Strap In for Two Launches That Feature an Exciting Adventure and a Confusing Scenario!
In Secrets of the Sky: The Chaos Monster by SAYANTANI DasGUPTA, ten-year-old Kinjal's dog, Thums-up, disappears before his eyes in the middle of the night, and then two enormous flying horses appear and insist on taking Kinjal and his twin sister, Kiya, to a place they have never heard of: the Sky Kingdom. The twins have no choice but to go if they want to see their dog again, but that's not even why the winged pakkhiraj horses showed up in the first place! They have come to this dimension to seek help — bees are disappearing, along with the nectar the horses need to survive. The twins must use Kiya's scientific skills and Kinjal's love of books and language to help, but once there, they discover that the disappearance of the bees is more nefarious than they thought, and the plot goes all the way to the top.
In Mixed Up by GORDON KORMAN, Reef and Theo don't know what's happening to them. They'll be going about their days and then suddenly they'll have these strange flashes of memory — but the memories don't belong to them. And at the same time, their own memories are starting to... vanish. For Reef, this is a big problem, because memories are all he has left of his mom. For Theo, it's strange because the new memories give him a freedom he doesn't have with his domineering dad.
