Her whole grade is going to put on a performance of Free to Be. . . You and Me--and Izzy really wants a starring role. And changes at home are making Izzy feel like her family is falling apart.

This Book Will Not Be Fun by Cirocco Dunlap; illustrated by Olivier Tallec

A book is no place for tomfoolery, and this mouse assures us that his book is to be no exception. Just please ignore that Word-Eating Flying Whale, and—oh, no, the lights have gone out. Wait, what is THAT?! Nothing to fear. Everything is under control. . . .

Readers will delight as this charming yet uptight mouse is challenged and subverted by gloriously imaginative creatures that are like nothing you’ve ever seen. Will our little mouse succumb to the attractiveness of their overwhelming exuberance?

Update: This book will soon join the ranks of Annie A.'s collection. Annie, be on the lookout for this in your mailbox. It should arrive within the next few days.

Win it Wednesday: Lilly and Fin

Lilly and Fin: A Mermaid's Tale by Cornelia Funke

These mermaid friends are fishing for trouble!

Lilly and Fin are merpups--mermaid kids--who love to play and explore the caves outside the mermaid city. They aren't really supposed to leave the city, but that's what makes it so much fun! Surely all those stories about Two-Legs (you know, humans) and sea monsters are just made up to scare young merpups.

Little do they know that a real live human couple is on the hunt for a mermaid to add to their collection of rare sea creatures. If Two-Legs exist, what about sea monsters?

Great news for Dennis V.: you are the winner of this brand new book! It should arrive at your street address in the next few days.
