After reading this, you’re going to want your own Inkling! Loves books, helps with homework, good with kids…everyone wants it for their own - even stealing to get it. A story of loss, family, and true friendship, this is also great for anyone thinking about a career as a graphic novelist.
An amazing tale of fairies and magic, family and sadness, and finally of hope and happiness. I want to share Wicked Nix, Rose the Wise, and Mr. Green with children everywhere! A perfect family read aloud.
Charming honest down to earth Aurora is one other thing: weird! But she still has the same coming of age problems most 12 year olds have. Although her life is beginning to unravel, I loved her struggle, and the ending is perfect. Heartfelt, and full of mother-daughter AND father-daughter love.
Here’s an incredibly amazing, fantasy about three siblings who accidentally board a time traveling ship called the Vermilion and find themselves in the middle of a huge quest to save it. I loved this book because of the extraordinary detail! Liesl Shurtliff made the ship seem like it was alive. She also ended the story on a cliffhanger. I recommend this book for fans of the Unwanteds series.

Look out Percy Jackson, there’s a new kid in town! Meet Zane, a half-blood, whose dad is a Mayan god. This story starts out like a distant storm: soft, rumbling, slowly making its way towards you. Then it explodes into an action adventure that never lets you rest, all while introducing you to a whole new world of gods, demons, and more! I love that Rick Riordan has started this imprint that allows authors of diverse backgrounds to write about their culture and folklore. Great for guys and girls.
Here’s the perfect story for your 8-year-old who’s moving out of early chapter books. Also a wonderful read-aloud for the whole family, this sweet story has the flavor of a classic.

With a great cast of characters, this book left me filled with joy and happiness.
Sure it’s action-packed, but what I love is that the cool technology and gadgets they use will probably become available in our lifetime!! Kids who love puzzles, ciphers, science, technology, and conservation will love this thriller.
Oh, how wonderful it is to have a new found favorite…and for me, this is it! Whether you’re a fan of fantasy or magical realism in general, or a fan of The Adventurers Guild specifically, this book is for you.

And you will be too, because what’s not to love—this book is one part mystery, one part magical realism and one big part HILARIOUS! Join Colm and Mal along with new neighbor Tamika as they race to save their building, and another building in an alternate universe as well.

When Emily & James compete in the latest Griswold Game, "Unlock the Rock," along with the usual puzzle solving, they also uncover an unexpected mystery involving Alcatraz itself. So much thoughtful attention to detail is given in this clever, engaging story. But there is so much more to it, because I'll guarantee that you--the reader--will find one or more characters that are relatable. The plots in this series have drawn me in Every time, but it's Emily, James & friends that hold my attention. This is one you'll read over & over again!
A hilarious tale about expecting a sibling! This chapter book is perfect for those new to the concept of having a brother or sister. They can relate to Lulu and her journey to becoming a big sister!
