    Tom Hock dreams big. He wants to be the greatest pro gamer in the world, and he’s got the skills to make it. Right now though, the twelve-year-old’s happily exploring San Diego’s Comic Book Convention with his older brother, Joey.

    While at the convention, Tom makes two discoveries. The first is the existence of Monster Realm, a mysterious game played deep beneath the convention floor. Those who win the game earn the coveted title of Multidimensional Game Master. The second surprise is Dark Pixy, a cute, butt-kicking pro-gamer with a hidden connection to Monster Realm.

    Once they start playing, Tom, Joey, and Pixy realize they’re trapped in the game, their bodies the slaves of the game designer. The only way to escape is to beat the final boss, a feat impossible for normal gamers.

    Good thing Tom and Pixy aren’t normal gamers. But as they struggle to reclaim their bodies, something within the game also wants access to the real world. If it escapes, no one will survive to attend next year’s convention.</p

    In this second book in a series that Kirkus Reviews calls a “fast-paced combination of middle school realism and fairy-tale fantasy,” it’s up to Rory to save the Ever After School—and deal with her father’s fiancée.

    After taking part in a successful real-life fairy tale, Rory Landon is now an Ever After School veteran. She has better friends than she’s ever had, and she’s stronger, more confident, and ready to take on whatever comes next.

    Or so she thought. When a nefarious plan from The Snow Queen threatens the entire Ever After School program, it is up to Rory and Chase to save everyone. Between this new adventure and what is happening at home—where a potential stepmom has entered the picture—Rory wonders if she really has what it takes to come to the rescue.

The inside of Atherton–where the most troubling secrets are hidden–has been breached. While Edgar embarks on a life-or-death quest to find Atherton’s mad maker, his two friends, Samuel and Isabel, venture through dangerous underground realms, confronting deadly cave dwellers, rivers of fire, and waters of life.

    Atherton is not what it seems at all, but something far more dangerous, with a history locked inside the mind of a madman and a future beyond Edgar’s wildest imagining.

    *KINDLE ILLUSTRATIONS IN VIVID COLOR*

    Alexandra St. Germaine is dreading going back to school.

    The Pine School is not a typical school and her sixth-year teacher, Miss Blueberry, is not typical either. And things get off to a rather disastrous start, leading to some shocking changes in Classroom #6.

    At home, the elegant Chadwick Manor, Alexandra’s constant companion is a blue and gold macaw parrot named Taco. He is a kind-hearted and intelligent bird, with an impressive vocabulary and very definite opinions. All is well until one dark and stormy night, when Taco and Alexandra find their world quite upended. Two wet and windswept figures are standing in the Chadwick foyer–with their pets–and the winds of change begin to blow.

    Mystery and magic sweep into Dark Harbor, along with the chilly fall weather . . . a teacher whose face is hauntingly familiar, the bewitching night of All Hallows’ Eve, time travel to a Salem Witch Trial, strange Miss Ima from the Book Nook, and a magical key which unlocks a tragic past.

    The Time Seekers is a children’s novel for elementary (grade four and above) through middle school age children. In the tradition of Stuart Little, Charlotte’s Web, and The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, The Time Seekers takes flight with two anthropomorphized birds: a macaw parrot and a common raven (who only speaks French), yet remains grounded in authentic human emotions and experiences . . . friendship, love, redemption and forgiveness, and never giving up.

    With more than 500 pages (64 chapters, Prologue and Epilogue), some French language, The Time Seekers’ Map, and over 30 pen and ink illustrations, as The Time Seekers is opened, so, too, is a portal to a classic adventure story. An alchemy of magic and human emotion, woven into a tapestry of New England locales (Maine and Cape Cod), The Time Seekers truly belongs on the family bookshelf to be enjoyed by readers of all ages.

    “You have no idea where childhood ends and maturity begins . . . it is all endless and all one.”

    Come on a high-flying adventure with Johnny and Janey as they travel from their own backyard to the mysterious enchanted kingdom they discover on the other side of the moon.
    When Johnny and Janey build their Flying Machine out of some old boards and wooden spools, the last thing they expect is for it to actually take off! But that’s just what happens, and before they know it, they’re soaring high above the clouds on their way to the Magical Land of Noom.
    Filled with such wonders as mushrooms that taste of ginger cake and flowing springs of lemonade, Noom seems like a paradise to the children. But the lemonade springs belong to the wicked magician Old jingles, who has kidnapped the beautiful Princess of Nite .
    Setting out to rescue the princess and return her to her throne, Johnny and Janey are aided by the many friends they find in Noom, including the kind and gentle Soft-Voiced Cow, the spirited Fun Boys, and the exuberant Mr. Tiptoe and his miraculous umbrella. But can this intrepid band defeat the wily Old Jingles and all his tricks?
    Johnny Gruelle — who introduced the world to Raggedy Ann and Raggedy Andy, everyone’s favorite rag dolls — is the creator of this stirring, heartwarming tale. Filled with gentle wisdom and delightful whimsy, it is a wonderful introduction to the boundless imagination and loving spirit of Johnny Gruelle.

    Dragon keepers Jesse and Daisy need help!

    Emmy, their rapidly growing dragon, has become a real grouch, saying she’s missing “something,” and the cousins don’t have a clue what that something is. Jesse and Daisy go online to ask Professor Andersson, their favorite dragon expert, for help and end up seeing him being kidnapped!

    The kidnapper is none other than Sadie Huffington, the girlfriend of their enemy, St. George the Dragon Slayer. She has hatched a wicked scheme to use the professor to both find St. George and capture Emmy. Now the dragon keepers and their dragon must storm Sadie’s castle and rescue the professor from the witch and her pack of vicious dog-men!

    In this third fantasy book in the Dragon Keepers series, Kate Klimo introduces readers to a magical library filled with shelf elves and reveals the secrets of the gigantic red book that Jesse and Daisy discovered in The Dragon in the Sock Drawer. She keeps the action and adventure flying while bringing both heart and imagination to this tale of two kids and a dragon, growing up together.

    The Dragon Keepers series is perfect for kids who crave books about dragons and magic but are caught betwixt and between—too old for Magic Tree House and not yet ready for Eragon and the Inheritance cycle.

The journey turns perilous when the Navigator contracts a virus and propels the two friends into the wrong time. In triumphing over the obstacles Wilbur sets in her way, Lucy finds her self-confidence and more. The book will thrill and educate young readers about the value of viewing life as a journey and the magic that lives inside each of us.

    Roald Dahl meets Eva Ibbotson in this hilarious middle grade debut perfect for reading aloud

    Rupert Campbell is fascinated by the witches who live nearby. He dreams of broomstick tours and souvenir potions, but Rupert’s mother forbids him from even looking at that part of town. The closest he can get to a witchy experience is sitting in class with his awful teacher Mrs. Frabbleknacker, who smells like bellybutton lint and forbids Rupert’s classmates from talking to each other before, during, and after class. So when he sees an ad to become a witch’s apprentice, Rupert simply can’t resist applying.

    But Witchling Two isn’t exactly what Rupert expected. With a hankering for lollipops and the magical aptitude of a toad, she needs all the help she can get to pass her exams and become a full-fledged witch. She’s determined to help Rupert stand up to dreadful Mrs. Frabbleknacker too, but the witchling’s magic will be as useful as a clump of seaweed unless Rupert can figure out a way to help her improve her spellcasting—and fast!

    Do You Believe in Magic?
    Jala does. So when a mirror appears in Jala’s room and transports her to the world of wolves — the fact that she’s become a wolf herself is only the beginning! Can she help her pack survive? And will she ever get back to her human family again?

    Readers of classic fantasy like The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe and Alice in Wonderland will adore this chapter book for young readers. Buy this delightful adventure today.
     
    What Readers Are Saying:
     
    “A lovely and whimsical read for any little girl or grown woman like myself.”
    “Dumas taps into a fantasy that I believe many children probably have (sometimes pretending that they’re an animal, or in Jala’s case, becoming that animal) and what they can learn from that fantasy. Jala learns more about herself, her family, and her world through her adventure as a wolf and that translates to an added layer of discussion that you could have with your child while reading this book. This would make a lovely addition to any child’s ebook library.”
    “Jala and the Wolves…reads like a Hindu fairytale with its quaint nature-filled charm and elegant magic. It reminds me of the books I read as a child – The Secret Garden and the like – and that makes it something I want to share with my daughter.”
