After a dead end in their investigation of the local fox goddess, an attempted abduction and chase through the city, and news of a fire at the video arcade, Jun, Riko, Yuuji, and Aoi have had a rough time. A new series of school challenges to win MarduKoins seems like just the thing to give them some fresh motivation, as they team up to prove their academic and physical skill – and upgrade their MarduKard decks. As the challenges go on, however, they find some unexpected opposition... and begin to uncover some dark happenings in town. With more on the line than winning a contest, can Riko and Jun outfox their enemies?
The second volume of kawaiiNihongo's Light Novel features a deeper look into what is happening in the world where thousands of people already learn Japanese.
Follow Riko, Jun, Aoi and Yuuji through their adventures in Maruimachi, written by Miya Martin and brought to life with illustrations by Rosuuri!
Giants! Elephants! Roller Coasters?That's just some of the mayhem twin brothers Beowulf and Grendel discover in the second adventure in the series by Alexis E. Fajardo!

It's up to Beowulf and Grendel to unite the country before it's taken over by an invading Saracen horde!
A dog’s tail is incredibly versatile. They use them to communicate everything from the furious, full-body wiggling “I’m so happy to see you I could burst!” to the tucked-under-the-bum “N-O-O-O! Is that the vet’s office we’re pulling up to?” They also keep noses warm on cold nights and conveniently sweep food off coffee tables.
Tails Don’t Lie 2 is Adrian Raeside’s hilarious follow-up to the bestselling Tails Don’t Lie (Harbour, 2013), collecting even more of his favourite cartoons featuring our four-legged hairy scroungers. This new volume explores important canine traits like why dogs covet the driver’s seat, what would happen if dogs went on space missions (do aliens have dogs?), the humiliation of tail docking, the immense importance of trees to a dog, and the eternal question of why squirrel-chasing isn’t included in dog agility courses.
Containing 340 full-colour cartoons, Tails Don’t Lie 2 offers a unique window into the mind of the family pet that will have readers howling.
