Summary

The second uproarious adventure from the comic pairing of Michael Rosen and Neal Layton sees Malcolm and the peculiar Uncle Gobb go to America, each with a cunning plan ... 
 
Even though Malcolm managed to bamboozle and confuzle Uncle Gobb in the last book (hooray!), it was only temporary (boo!). Uncle Gobb is still living with him and still roaring at him about peas and poetry and Peter Parker.  
 
This time the plan to get rid of Uncle Gobb has to be mega. It has to be epic. It has to involve America, the Jumblies, the Genie (of course), Aunty Brenda the Mender and Malcolm's long-lost dad. But Malcolm doesn't know that Uncle Gobb also has a plan. A plan to get rid of Malcolm once and for all ... 
 
A bonkers book about standing up for yourself, from two crazily creative people. Sure to delight fans of David Walliams, Andy Stanton and Tom Gates.

    Tabitha is pulled into an adventure all her own in this short follow up to The Mage and the Magpie. 
     
    Tabitha, whose job it is to keep an eye on things, is doing her job a little too well one night and finds herself alone with Archibald when he is kidnapped by the Queen of the Nymph Kingdom. When she tries to save him, she finds out that there is more behind the Queen's actions than meets the eye. In order to save her friend, she must navigate a series of tests, face her worst nightmare, and learn to understand the secrets of her own heart. 
     
    Interview with the Author: 
     
    Q - So, why should readers give these books a try?  
     
    A - Because the Magemother books are fast and fun, and I guarantee you'll never forget the friends you find inside them. Each of the books is a different experience, but each one is worth your time. And I'm not just saying that because I wrote them. I've also read a TON of Fantasy.  
     
    If you like fun, kid-friendly books with lots of magic and a plot that twists and turns, you'll get a kick out of this series.  
     
    Q - So, what makes the Magemother series so special?  
     
    A - A few different things. When I set out to write the Magemother series I wanted to write the types of books that I love to read. My top picks are usually fantasy books. I'm well into my 20's now and I still love reading the middle grade bestsellers. Especially ones with a good bit of mystery, a few surprises, and lots of laughs.  
     
    The Magemother books have a good mix of these things. They mostly focus on the children's fantasy / teen fantasy adventure genre's over all, with some coming of age and mystery aspects thrown in for good measure.  
     
    Overall the Magemother series is designed to invite you into another wonderful fantasy universe alongside a set of unforgettable characters.  
     
    Q - What order should I read the books in? 
     
    A - I would suggest this order:  
     
    - The Mage and the Magpie  
    - The Empty Throne (Novella)  
    - The Paradise Twin  
    - The Bridge to Nowhere (coming soon)  
     
    Q - Which one was your favorite to write?  
     
    A - That's a tough one. The Empty Throne was fun because Tabitha is such a wonderfully strange and quirky character, and I really had a blast giving her her own adventure. That said, The Paradise Twin is my favorite so far. The characters really come alive in that book, especially Hugo, who has some serious demons to wrestle with. There is also some great plot twists and comedy in that one, if I do say so myself.

    After serving out a year of hard labor in the salt mines of Endovier for her crimes, 18-year-old assassin Celaena Sardothien is dragged before the Crown Prince. Prince Dorian offers her her freedom on one condition: she must act as his champion in a competition to find a new royal assassin. 
     
    Her opponents are men-thieves and assassins and warriors from across the empire, each sponsored by a member of the king's council. If she beats her opponents in a series of eliminations, she'll serve the kingdom for three years and then be granted her freedom.  
     
    Celaena finds her training sessions with the captain of the guard, Westfall, challenging and exhilirating. But she's bored stiff by court life. Things get a little more interesting when the prince starts to show interest in her... but it's the gruff Captain Westfall who seems to understand her best. 
     
    Then one of the other contestants turns up dead... quickly followed by another. Can Celaena figure out who the killer is before she becomes a victim? As the young assassin investigates, her search leads her to discover a greater destiny than she could possibly have imagined.

    Sparks fly between unlikely lab partners Brittany Ellis and Alex Fuentes in the first book in Simone Elkeles' New York Times bestselling YA contemporary romance series . . . and when two polar opposites meet, the results are bound to be explosive. 
     
    When Brittany Ellis walks into chemistry class on the first day of senior year, she has no clue that her carefully created "perfect" life is about to unravel before her eyes. She's forced to be lab partners with Alex Fuentes, a gang member from the other side of town, and he is about to threaten everything she's worked so hard for-her flawless reputation, her relationship with her boyfriend, and the secret that her home life is anything but perfect.  
     
    Alex is a bad boy and he knows it. So when he makes a bet with his friends to lure Brittany into his life, he thinks nothing of it. But soon Alex realizes Brittany is a real person with real problems, and suddenly the bet he made in arrogance turns into something much more.  
     
    Neither Brittany nor Alex is prepared for the most surprising chemical reaction of all--love.
