Summary

Get a FREE sneak peek at charming new mystery from Megan Frazer Blakemore that will have readers rooting for the irresistibly precocious Hazel Kaplansky 
 
Hazel Kaplansky is a firm believer in the pursuit of knowledge and  truth-and she also happens to love a good mystery. When suspicions swirl  that a Russian spy has infiltrated her small town of Maple Hill,  Vermont, amidst the fervor of Cold War era McCarthyism, Hazel knows it's  up to her to find a suspect… starting with Mr. Jones, the quietly  suspicious grave digger. Plus she's found a perfect sleuthing partner in  Samuel Butler, the new boy in school with a few secrets of his own. But  as Hazel and Samuel piece together clues from the past and present, the  truth is suddenly not what they expected, and what they find reveals  more about themselves and the people of their cozy little town than they  could ever have imagined.

    A hilarious tale from Newbery Medal winner Paula Fox: Maurice loves to collect things—but what happens when he collects too many things?   Eight-year-old Maurice is a collector. It doesn’t matter how big or how small it is—if he likes something, he’ll bring it home with him. His newest addition is a dried octopus hanging by a string from the ceiling. There’s also a bottle of dead beetles, four painted turtles, and practical stuff like nails, screws, and wires.   His parents have tried everything to persuade Maurice to get rid of the junk, giving him trumpet lessons and even a dog, but nothing can compare to the pleasure of discovering treasures in the nooks and crannies of New York City. Then one day, his parents tell him they have a surprise . . .   A humorous and heartwarming story from Hans Christian Andersen Award–winning author Paula Fox, Maurice’s Room is perfect for kids of all ages marching to the beat of their own drums.

    Picture books featuring wild animals help develop a child's imagination in a plethora of meaningful ways. First, the shapes and colors featured in the books will spark the child's creative spirit and potentially generate a desire to draw similar figures. Second, the picture books featuring wild creatures will likely spark questions regarding the personal preferences and proclivities of the animals. Once these questions formulate in the child's mind, she or he will likely begin to extrapolate about the answers and/or have lively conversations with his or her parent regarding the animals.

    Growing up is never easy, but for Jahrra, seventeen years has brought its own unique share of hardships. She’s made both friends and enemies; has felt both joy and sorrow. Yet she has persevered through it all and has finally learned to know and accept who she is. Unfortunately, her trials and tribulations are only just beginning . . .  
     
    An inconceivable tragedy and the revelation of a secret kept from her since birth has turned her perfect world on its end. Jahrra isn’t the poor Nesnan she thought she was, but human, one promised by Ethöes in a prophecy from long ago. Now, without her guardian, she must accept the help of the one she mistrusts the most as they flee Oescienne before the Tyrant’s minions have a chance to close in.  
     
    With her enemies at her heels and the terrifying truth looming before her, Jahrra will seek shelter with the dragon Raejaaxorix in the faraway city of Lidien, a place of hope and enlightenment. But when the City of Light proves to entertain its own dangers, Jahrra and Jaax find their safety threatened once again. But this time the threat may be coming from those they trust the most . . .
