witherwood reform school

story by obert skye
art by keith thompson

just try putting down this dark adventure with its cliffhanger ending! the latest from obert skye is completely different from his creature from the closet series, but just as compulsively readable. with an evil boarding school school setting, a creepy mystery and a brother-sister team – well, it’s got it all for any middle grade reader.  author in the shop tuesday, march 10th!

wonkenstein

creature from my closet: wonkenstein

by obert skye

we love this clever series! here’s the premise: the books and toys in ron burnside’s closet combust and create doll-sized character mash-ups which serve as mascots/mentors in his messy pre-teen life. all the titles are laugh-out-loud funny and perfect for readers both reluctant (heavily illustrated) and accomplished (smart book references.) author in the shop tuesday, march 10th!

rabbit & robot: the sleepover

by cece bell

we love this funny beginning reader about an unlikely friendship. (and we have our fingers crosses that will be the first in a series!)

bee-wigged

bee-wigged

by cece bell

this shop favorite is like the brady bunch episode “the new jan brady” – only with a giant bee named jerry. we love that cece dreams up these equal parts quirky and sweet tales.
