Summary

While staying at her aunt’s farm, a girl searches for her missing dog—and a mysterious vandal. Vannie Kirkland is spending the summer on her Aunt Bert’s farm while her parents are looking for work in California. At first, she feels uncomfortable: Aunt Bert is cranky and plainspoken, and she constantly reminds Vannie of how much she dislikes Vannie’s yappy little dog, Muffy. Then, just when Vannie is beginning to appreciate Aunt Bert and her way of life, trouble starts brewing. Someone has been lurking around the farm, vandalizing the property. To top it all off, Muffy gets lost!   Vannie helps Aunt Bert figure out who’s trying to scare them, captures the culprit, and learns a thing or two about what it means to compromise.

    ~ From the Author of the International Phenomenon EVERYBODY POOPS! ~ 
    Everybody toots—it's true! 
    For the little ones just discovering the mysteries of their own bodies, the bigger ones needing reassurance that the most elusive and spontaneous of their bodily functions is as natural as can be, and the biggest ones who still hold a fondness for toilet humor, Everybody Toots! is overly inflated with barefaced and cheeky illustrations and the truth about who’s doing the tooting: every body (and nearly every animal) is doing it! 
    Destined to incite giggling fits and all-ages laughter, Everybody Toots! exposes one of the least talked about facts we all have in common the world over and among all walks of life, benefiting the youngest of us by opening the discussion, promoting comfort with their bodies, and helping them feel included. Pass wind with pride!

    A “fun” fact-check of some famous names in history that uncovers the myths and the stories left out of the textbooks (School Library Journal). 
     
    Over the centuries, plenty of scandals, swindles, and skeletons have passed under history’s radar and missed out on being included in your textbook. (We’re looking at you, George “I cannot tell a lie” Washington.) Some of the biggest names in history can be found between these pages—and it turns out they’re lucky that TV and internet didn’t exist in Ancient Greece, Renaissance Europe, medieval England, or Revolutionary America, or else they could have kissed their sterling reputations goodbye. And some famous “historical figures” might not have even existed! 
     
    Discover the legends and lies that have grown up around twelve history-changers from Shakespeare to Pythagoras to Pope Joan to Hiawatha—and how truth can get overtaken by tall tales.

    Homer Fink could speak Latin and Greek or chart the orbit of the planet Jupiter, but when it came to tying his shoelaces or knotting his tie Homer was helpless.  The Adventures of Homer Fink is a story of youth’s first awareness of power and philosophy and love. It is peopled with characters as real as your next-door neighbors and yet uniquely extraordinary. Above all, this is a tale full of humor and affection and the wonder of growing up.
