Age: 7-10 | Grade: Grades 2-5
Summary: Pre-order now - - this book will be available May 30, 2017.


Victor Shmud has been many things: Knuckle Doctor, a Hunter of Ghost Bears, a Tattoo Artist, The Guy At The Restaurant That Puts The Sugar In Those Little Envelopes, a Computer Scientist, an Octopus Wrestler, and a Wedding Planner. In fact, he's been nearly everything (definitely not A Guy Who Cleans Up Bedrooms yet). But his newest gig is beautifuller (yes, that's a word. He's also a Licensed Wordmaker). He can make anyone gorgeous, with a gob of his beauty treatment (complete with Mustard Molecules).

But before he can work his beautifuller magic, he's vaporized (along with his associate, the very fluffy Dumpylumps) by a video game. Will Victor ever get back to Earth? Also, is it someone's birthday . . . and will there be cupcakes.

    The Trials of Apollo, Book Two: The Dark Prophecy

    Age: 10-14 | Grade: Grades 5-9
    Summary: Pre-order now - - this book will be available May 2, 2017.


    Apollo, an awesome god turned awkward mortal, journeys across North America with some demigod friends on his quest to regain Zeus's favor in Book Two of Rick Riordan's uproarious Trials of Apollo series.

    Zeus has punished his son Apollo--god of the sun, music, archery, poetry, and more--by casting him down to earth in the form of a gawky, acne-covered sixteen-year-old mortal named Lester. The only way Apollo can reclaim his rightful place on Mount Olympus is by restoring several Oracles that have gone dark. What is affecting the Oracles, and how can Apollo/Lester do anything about them without his powers?

    After experiencing a series of dangerous--and frankly, humiliating--trials at Camp Half-Blood, Lester must now leave the relative safety of the demigod training ground and embark on a hair-raising journey across North America. Somewhere in the American Midwest, he and his companions must find the most dangerous Oracle from ancient times: a haunted cave that may hold answers for Apollo in his quest to become a god again--if it doesn't kill him or drive him insane first. Standing in Apollo's way is the second member of the evil Triumvirate, a Roman emperor whose love of bloodshed and spectacle makes even Nero look tame. To survive the encounter, Apollo will need the help of son of Hephaestus Leo Valdez, the now-mortal sorceress Calypso, the bronze dragon Festus, and other unexpected allies--some familiar, some new--from the world of demigods. Come along for what promises to be a harrowing, hilarious, and haiku-filled ride. . . .

    Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban Illustrated Edition

    Age: 8 and Up | Grade: Grade 3
    Summary: Pre-order now - - this book will be available October 3, 2017.


    The third book in the bestselling Harry Potter series, now illustrated in glorious full color by award-winning artist Jim Kay!

    For twelve long years, the dread fortress of Azkaban held an infamous prisoner named Sirius Black. Convicted of killing thirteen people with a single curse, he was said to be the heir apparent to the Dark Lord, Voldemort.

    Now he has escaped, leaving only two clues as to where he might be headed: Harry Potter's defeat of You-Know-Who was Black's downfall as well. And the Azkaban guards heard Black muttering in his sleep, "He's at Hogwarts . . . he's at Hogwarts."

    Harry Potter isn't safe, not even within the walls of his magical school, surrounded by his friends. Because on top of it all, there may well be a traitor in their midst.

    The Trials of Apollo #1: The Hidden Oracle

    Age: 10-14 | Grade: Grades 5-9
    Summary: How do you punish an immortal?

    By making him human.

    After angering his father Zeus, the god Apollo is cast down from Olympus. Weak and disoriented, he lands in New York City as a regular teenage boy. Now, without his godly powers, the four-thousand-year-old deity must learn to survive in the modern world until he can somehow find a way to regain Zeus’s favor.

    But Apollo has many enemies—gods, monsters, and mortals who would love to see the former Olympian permanently destroyed. Apollo needs help, and he can think of only one place to go . . . an enclave of modern demigods known as Camp Half-Blood.
