John Wycliffe is a famous Oxford professor, but he has radical ideas and a temper that are get- ting him into trouble. Young Arnold Hutton has troubles of his own. His family is poor and he will have to either go to the fields or work for the abbot who feeds his dogs better than his servants. Arnold wants to be a scholar and decides to run away.In Oxford, Arnold hears Wycliffe teach and is inspired by Wycliffe’s ideas that everyone should be able to read the Bible, even those who can’t read Latin. People like Arnold and his family. But Wycliffe’s enemies are gathering evidence. They send spies to his lectures and encourage the Ox- ford students to riot in the streets. Will Arnold and his friends be able to convince Wycliffe that he is in danger? Will they be able to save the Bible that has been translated into English?Join Arnold, Timothy, and Lucy as they un- cover the plot against Wycliffe and help to entrust the holy Bible into the hands of beggars.

    “Kadohata’s slapshot is the heart-swelling narrative of a father and son…Truly powerful.” —Jason Reynolds“A deeply poignant story about a boy sorting out his priorities.” —Publishers Weekly (starred review) “A vivid, memorable portrayal of a boy within his family, his sport, and his gradually broadening world.” —Booklist (starred review) From Newbery Medalist Cynthia Kadohata comes a brilliantly-realized novel about a hockey player who must discover who he is without the sport that defines him.Hockey is Conor’s life. His whole life. He’ll say it himself, he’s a hockey beast. It’s his dad’s whole life too—and Conor is sure that’s why his stepmom, Jenny, left. There are very few things Conor and his dad love more than the game, and one of those things is their Doberman, Sinbad. When Sinbad is diagnosed with cancer, Conor chooses to put his hockey lessons and practices on hold so they can pay for Sinbad’s chemotherapy.But without hockey to distract him, Conor begins to notice more. Like his dad’s crying bouts, and his friend’s difficult family life. And then Conor notices one more thing: Without hockey, the one thing that makes him feel special, is he really special at all?

    From the author of Private Peaceful, a stunning novel about friendship, World War II, a naughty cat, and one girl’s bravery which changes her life forever. It’s 1943, and twelve-year-old Lily Tregenza lives on a farm in an idyllic seaside village in England. Apart from her father being away and the “townie” evacuees at school, her life is scarcely touched by the war. That is until Lily and her family, along with 3,000 other villagers, are ordered to evacuate their homes to allow the Allied forces to practice their landings for D-day. It’s a dangerous operation—guns firing and bombs exploding—and the whole area is off-limits. But Adolphus Tips, Lily’s adored cat, has other ideas—barbed wire and “Keep out!” signs mean nothing to her . . . Praise for The Amazing Story of Adolphus Tips“The personal story of anger and love is as gripping as the war drama, and Morpurgo includes a fascinating note about the invasion rehearsal and why its history is seldom told.” —Booklist

    This meticulously researched work, the fourth volume in Pelican's Governors of the States Series, traces the lives and careers of the men who have held Tennessee's highest office, beginning with the founding of the original independent state of Franklin in 1784 and continuing to the present.As author Margaret I. Phillips vividly documents, Tennessee's history and culture have been profoundly shaped by a number of strong, dynamic governors. These leaders include the first governor, charismatic John Sevier, who served six terms; the near-legendary Sam Houston; and two men who later became president of the United States, James K. Polk (1845-1849) and Andrew Johnson (1865-1869). Other notable figures who occupied the statehouse include the scholarly Archibald Roane; William Blount, the patriotic zealot; William Carroll, the "pioneering Babbitt"; Joseph McMinn, the "peaceful negotiator"; tart-tongued James "Lean Jimmy" Jones; and Robert Love Taylor, the "pardoning governor."
