Join us in-store to check out:
Daddy and the Beanstalk by ANDREW WEINER. Did you know that Jack was looking for hot dogs when he climbed up the beanstalk? Or that he was led there by a talking fox named Wendy? Ok, maybe that’s not how the real story goes, but when Estella’s dad, Andrew, tells her bedtime stories, she’s always in for a bit of twist!
Stories of the Islands by CLAR ANGKASA. Once upon a time... a princess was cursed to live as a snail, two sisters were trapped by their father’s wrath, and a mother and daughter faced a hungry giant. No one is coming to save them. Will they get their happily ever after? In this collection of reimagined Indonesian fairy tales, the girls are the ones with power. The power to fight evil, to protect others, and to grow as people. Because why should girls in folktales always need saving? What if they save themselves instead?
- The Cool Code 2.0: The Switch Glitch by DEIRDRE LANGELAND. When the coding club finds that their app has a malicious user, Morgan, Zoey, and Daniel code an update to contend with a mischievous llama avatar who's guiding a not-so-popular kid named Marcus to cause chaos in the school. Annoying little siblings, chaotic pranks, and more abound as they race to repair the glitchy app — and their own friendships — in their school before the damage is irreversible.
