But when Belle’s beloved father is taken prisoner by a beast in an enchanted castle, her path is forever changed. Risking her freedom and her future, she takes her father’s place, secretly vowing to escape. But as she learns more about the Beast and his mysterious castle, Belle realizes there may be more to his story—and her own—than she ever could have imagined.

Dot to Dot
A Novel
Kit Bakke

Dorothy Mary-Jane, or “Dot,” is an ordinary twelve-year-old girl with ordinary problems until she sees her mother killed by an errant red truck. The memories won’t go away; Dot lies down on her ratty Tinkerbell rug and swears she’ll never leave it. Her unpredictable Aunt Tab swoops Dot off to London, saying England is the place to sort out Dot’s life. Aunt Tab secretly packs Dot’s mother’s ashes. Dot packs Tinkerbell along with Dancing on the Edge, a silk collage embroidered by her mother with cryptic lessons from the three famous historical English women Dot is named after. Before she can discover their meaning, however, Dot is appalled by the preponderance of large red trucks in England, by Aunt Tab’s unexpected agenda with the ashes, and by an unpleasant but interesting English boy named Nick. Reading Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, Dot finds the past increasingly intrusive, Aunt Tab increasingly irritating and Nick increasingly present. Dot has to decide whether or not to run away with Nick. As she makes her decision, she packs the richness of the past into her own future without her mother.

Note: The three historical English women are Dorothy Wordsworth, sister and muse of the great Romantic poet William Wordsworth; Mary Wollstonecraft, author of the radical Vindication of the Rights of Woman and mother of Mary Shelley, author of Frankenstein and runaway teenage wife of the revolutionary poet Shelley; and Jane Austen, author of Pride and Prejudice and five other perennially popular novels.

Time travel is involved. Also tarot cards.

Silver People
Margarita Engle

Voices from the Panama Canal

One hundred years ago, the world celebrated the opening of the Panama Canal, which connected the world’s two largest oceans and signaled America’s emergence as a global superpower. It was a miracle, this path of water where a mountain had stood—and creating a miracle is no easy thing. Thousands lost their lives, and those who survived worked under the harshest conditions for only a few silver coins a day.

From the young "silver people" whose back-breaking labor built the Canal to the denizens of the endangered rainforest itself, this is the story of one of the largest and most difficult engineering projects ever undertaken, as only Newbery Honor-winning author Margarita Engle could tell it.

Michael Vey:
Hunt For Jade Dragon
Richard Evans

Book 4

Following the sinking of the Elgen's flagship boat, the Ampere, and disrupting the Elgen plans to overthrow the small island nation of Tuvalu, Michael and the Electroclan are flown to a secret compound to prepare for their next mission: rescuing a child genius - an autistic Chinese girl named Jade Dragon - who has solved the problems the Elgen are having replicating the electric children. Blue Rider
Geraldo Valério 155498981 On a gray and crowded city sidewalk, a child discovers a book. That evening, the child begins to read and is immediately carried beyond the repetitive sameness of an urban skyscape into an untamed natural landscape. The child experiences a moment of true joy, and as if in response to that single blissful moment, people seem to come alive in all the other rooms of the apartment block. Thanks to the power of one book, an entire society is transformed.

In creating this book, Geraldo Valério was inspired by the German Expressionist group known as Der Blaue Reiter (The Blue Rider), which formed in Munich in 1911 and included painters Franz Marc and Wassily Kandinsky. These artists sought to find the spiritual significance in art, with an emphasis on form and color. In turn, Valério has created a wordless book that speaks volumes about how art can transform us beyond the sometimes-dreary world of the everyday.

A buoyant, breathtaking poem from Juan Felipe Herrera — brilliantly illustrated by Caldecott Honoree Lauren Castillo — speaks to every dreaming heart.

Have you ever imagined what you might be when you grow up? When he was very young, Juan Felipe Herrera picked chamomile flowers in windy fields and let tadpoles swim across his hands in a creek. He slept outside and learned to say good-bye to his amiguitos each time his family moved to a new town. He went to school and taught himself to read and write English and filled paper pads with rivers of ink as he walked down the street after school. And when he grew up, he became the United States Poet Laureate and read his poems aloud on the steps of the Library of Congress. If he could do all of that . . . what could you do?

With this illustrated poem of endless possibility, Juan Felipe Herrera and Lauren Castillo breathe magic into the hopes and dreams of readers searching for their place in life.

The Missing Donut
Judith Henderson

Big Words Small Stories: The Missing Donut

Here's a collection of short stories with a twist. The five stories all feature the misadventures of a boy named Cris, who likes things all in a row, and his cat, Crat, who likes to mix things up. Running within each of these lighthearted stories is another story, this one about the Sprinkle Fairy, owner of a word factory in Sicily, where the best words in the world come from. The Sprinkle Fairy has a team of helpers, called the Sprinklers, who have slipped one of her big words (like, discombobulated) into each of the small stories. Luckily, the Sprinklers provide warnings right before the big words appear (Big word coming! ) and include their pronunciations and meanings afterward. Then, a bonus story at the end A Small Play on Big Words uses all the big words together.

Judith Henderson has created an innovative approach to an early reader that involves children in simple, fun-to-read stories, while using a clever, playful device to enrich their vocabularies at the same time. The quirky stories are funny, with storylines that build on each other. The appealing blend of deadpan and slapstick humor in the text is paired with multiple spot illustrations by T. L. McBeth on every page. The tone and accessibility are pitch-perfect for emerging readers. This title is part of a three-book series each book with its own character duo, but all starring the Sprinkle Fairy and her Sprinklers.

I'm Done!
Gretchen Brandenburg McLellan

A little beaver with a slapdash approach to dam-building comes to appreciate the satisfaction of a job well done in this sweet tale that's perfect for storytime.

Nibble, nibble, snap. When Little Beaver sets a single twig across the stream, he figures that should be good enough for a dam. "I'm done!" he calls to Papa before tearing off to play with Fish. But Papa isn't buying it, and it's back to work for Little Beaver. Nibble, nibble, snap, scoop, scoop, pat. Little Beaver sets two more twigs across the stream, and adds some mud before scurrying off with Blue Heron. Mama isn't amused. "You're not done yet."

GRETCHEN MCLELLAN'S text explores the value of perseverance at a level perfect for very young readers, while CATHARINE LAZAR ODELLS darling illustrations capture the sweetness of Little Beaver's attempts at perfecting his dam--and the triumph of his eventual success.

The Stars Beneath Our Feet
David Barclay Moore

It’s Christmas Eve in Harlem, but twelve-year-old Lolly Rachpaul and his mom aren’t celebrating. They’re still reeling from his older brother’s death in a gang-related shooting just a few months earlier. Then Lolly’s mother’s girlfriend brings him a gift that will change everything: two enormous bags filled with Legos. Lolly’s always loved Legos, and he prides himself on following the kit instructions exactly. Now, faced with a pile of building blocks and no instructions, Lolly must find his own way forward.

His path isn’t clear—and the pressure to join a “crew,” as his brother did, is always there. When Lolly and his friend are beaten up and robbed, joining a crew almost seems like the safe choice. But building a fantastical Lego city at the community center provides Lolly with an escape—and an unexpected bridge back to the world.

David Barclay Moore paints a powerful portrait of a boy teetering on the edge—of adolescence, of grief, of violence—and shows how Lolly’s inventive spirit helps him build a life with firm foundations and open doors.
