New Realms and Bold Wayfarers!

Dark kingdoms surge with trickster-opulence and mysterious technology. Creatures await your bravery — and hold their breath for every one of your heroic, foolish choices. Would you answer the call of a quest?

Young readers, one and all, are invited to join Books of Wonder as we encounter fantastic middle grade storytellers and their visionary adventure-stories!

  • Never trust a fae. Lark Mairen knows this. But Lark’s brother, Galin, has just disappeared into the fae realm, and Lark’s only lead is a mysterious fae boy called Rook. Encounter hidden magic and perilous adventures in Lark and the Wild Hunt by JENNIFER ADAM.

  • The mines collapse, and Nura's best friend is buried! Nura shovels her way through the dirt hoping to find him. Instead, she unearths a portal to the opulent realm of jinn. Can she rescue Faisal here? Discover the magic of this uniquely Pakistani and Muslim flavored tale, Nura and the Immortal Palace by M. T. KHAN.

  • A new peril has emerged in the world of Fabulous Creatures. Luckily, all of our favorite characters are back -- including Ben and Firedrake, his wonderful dragon friend. But the threat is real and quickly encroaching. A villain from a secret past is seeking revenge, and a new underwater world is waiting to be discovered in The Aurelia Curse, the third book in CORNELIA FUNKE's treasured Dragon Rider series.
