But New Books Make Everything Better!

Yay! A cart of new books! Just arrived on my desk from the hands of our processor:

Poppy and Ereth by Avi. I'm not sure we have the entire series, but I thought it was important we get the final story.

Faith Hope and Ivy June by Phyllis Reynolds Naylor. Some tween girls have asked me for more realistic girl fiction, and this looked like a good choice.

Teen Knitting Club by Jennifer Wenger. This was a choice of our adult services librarian for the teen nonfiction collection. Very snappy cover.

Pearl and Wagner: One Funny Day by Kate McMullan. A good easy-reader series.

Lost and Found: Three Dog Stories by Jim LaMarche. The soft, warm art and happy-ending stories will make this a favorite - a good bedtime story and dog lovers will like it too.

Dinotrux by Chris Gall. Finally, finally, fit this into an order! Dinosaurs! Trucks! Need I say more?

A Hole in the Road by Jakki Wood. Lots of machines and construction processes for young fans.

Henry and the Crazed Chicken Pirates by Carolyn Crimi. Look at that cover. Who wouldn't want to read this?

Katy Did It by Lorianne Siomades. Joyously eye-popping art and great repetitive text for storytime.

Down Down Down: A journey to the bottom of the sea by Steve Jenkins. It's Steve Jenkins. It's gorgeous. A look at the ocean, level by level, from the air to the deepest trenches.

Bird, Butterfly, Eel by James Prosek. An excellent explanation of migration for young children with lovely nature art.

Boys of Steel: The Creators of Superman by Marc Nobleman. Of course, everybody else has their copy of this already...

The Road to Oz: Twists, turns, bumps and triumphs in the life of L. Frank Baum by Kathleen Krull. I'm beefing up our biography section, this is an excellent addtion.

Wanda Gag: The Girl who Lived to Draw by Deborah Ray. I heard mixed reviews on this, but I'm glad I got it. The text is long enough for the older kids on their biography assignments during the year and the illustrations will attract younger readers and their parents.

And that's all in this cart! Lots more waiting to be cataloged...
