Summary

UNCLE WIGGILY AND THE PIRATES is the 15th Uncle Wiggily picture book and contains 3 stories with 29 colour illustrations. The stories in this volume are UNCLE WIGGILY and the PIRATES or THE BOB CAT NEARLY SPOILED A NUTTING PARTY plus UNCLE WIGGILY AND NURSE JANE GATHER MAY FLOWERS.

As with everything Uncle Wiggily gets involved in, each story is an engaging adventure in itself.
Each story is short enough to be read to 3 to 5 year olds at bed time with bright, colourful images to keep children engaged throughout the story.

UNCLE WIGGILY is an engaging elderly rabbit and is lame from rheumatism. Wherever he goes, he always relies on a red, white, and blue crutch—described as being "striped like a barber-pole", or, in later episodes, "his candy-striped walking cane", with spiral red and white striping like a peppermint candy stick.

    The Little Soul and the Sun is a simple and powerful story that brings children a profound truth: there is no absolute good or bad, only love.  The Little Soul and the Sun gracefully explains spiritual concepts to children and shares a story that helps readers remember the angel within us all. Your child will discover a God that she or he can love, because God is love, as are all the Little Souls who are a part of God. And perhaps parents, too, will rediscover who they really are.   A little soul discusses at length with God how he can learn to experience who he really is and which “part of special” he wants to be. The little soul decides he wants to be forgiving; thus another little soul soon obliges by offering to do something “not-so-nice”, so that the first little soul can experience forgiveness. Such messages as “everybody is special, each in their own way” and “it is special to be kind; it is special to be creative” are important for all children to hear, regardless of their faith.

    There’s “plenty of soccer action” in this story of a middle schooler who has to figure out how to balance good sportsmanship with the goal of winning (Booklist). Eighth-grader Nate Osborne is a forward on his U-14 soccer team, the Strikers. He and the rest of his teammates are very competitive—especially when it comes to their rivals, the Monarchs. They want the Monarchs to lose so badly that they’ll even root against them when they play other teams. Then, during a game between the Strikers and the Monarchs, a boy on the opposing team gets injured, and Nate must decide between going for a goal or kicking the ball out of bounds as an act of sportsmanship. His aunt, who’s also a soccer player, has taught him the importance of fair play, but when Nate stops the clock and sacrifices his chance to win the game, his teammates just don’t understand. From the author of the Sports Stories and All-Star Sport Stories series, as well as the kids’ sports column “The Score” for the Washington Post’s KidsPost section, Out of Bounds is an entertaining and thoughtful tale about young athletes striving to become not only great players, but also great people.

    Books in the Hide and Seek series provide an entertaining introduction to some of the words that tell us where things are. This book looks at “Left” and “Right”, and features an animal character called Eddie the Elephant who is playing hide-and-seek. On each spread, Eddie is hiding using one of the two opposite words featured in the book’s title, and the reader is asked to find him. The fun, cartoon-like design combined with the interactive “hide-and-seek” approach makes these books visually appealing for young readers and great to read aloud together.

    A junior high student is on the run from men in black with a scary science experiment in his backpack in this exciting adventure. Jeremy’s troubles begin when his eccentric neighbor leaves him an “experiment” for safekeeping—a jackalope! This so-called mythological creature looks like a bunny rabbit but comes with razor-sharp antlers and is purported to be a ruthless killer. When government agents show up at Jeremy's house seeking the jackalope for their own nefarious purposes, Jeremy must find a way to protect the jackalope, and himself. So, he reluctantly joins forces with Agatha, his holier-than-thou genius neighbor. Together, with the jackalope (and his weapons-grade antlers) tucked away in a backpack, they have only one chance to save Jack and still get their science fair projects in on time . . .  With her striking sense of humor, Emily Ecton has created a hilarious and suspenseful adventure, complete with a compelling and unforgettable cast of characters. Praise for Project Jackalope “A very satisfying thriller. . . . Readers will . . . be eager for a sequel.” —Kirkus Reviews“Will keep readers smiling to the very end.” —School Library Journal

    From the award-winning author of Prom & Prejudice and Past Perfect Life comes a story of all the drama and comedy of four friends who grow into themselves at a performing arts high school. 
     
    Emme, Sophie, Ethan, and Carter are getting ready for their Senior Showcase recital, where the pressure is on to appeal to colleges, dance academies, and professionals in show business. For Sophie, a singer, it’s been great to be friends with Emme, who composes songs for her, and to date Carter, soap opera heartthrob who gets plenty of press coverage. Emme and Ethan have been in a band together through all four years of school, but wonder if they could be more than just friends and bandmates. Carter has been acting since he was a baby, and isn’t sure how to admit that he’d rather paint than perform. The Senior Showcase is going to make or break each of the four, in a funny, touching, spectacular finale that only Elizabeth Eulberg could perform.
