    In The Caper of the Crown Jewels, Jack is summoned to solve a matter of grave national importance: the theft of the Crown Jewels of the British Empire from the Tower of London. Arriving on the scene, he is greeted by a traditional Tower guard—a Yeoman Warder (or Beefeater)—who explains what's missing: The Imperial State Crown, the Sovereign's Orb, and the Sovereign's Scepter with the cross containing the finest-cut diamond in the world, the Star of Africa. Jack identifies Ivan the Incredible and his assistant, Jazz, as the thieves immediately—but puzzling out how they did it is stickier. The famous Tower has the most advanced security in the world, and even using his impressive gadgets (the Encryption notebook, Heli-Spacer, Rock Corer, and Rope Tornado) Jack is flummoxed by how the jewels were spirited out. However, Jack can conjure up more than gadgets—he foils the evil magicians with some powerful mojo of his own, dispels an invisibility enchantment, and narrowly avoids the executioner's block before restoring the jewels to the crown and earning the gratitude of the Queen herself!

    Little Women, closely based on Louisa M. Alcott’s own experience of family life, was first published in 1869 and has never lost its extraordinary power to move and delight: from the heartrending story of gentle Beth to the humorous adventures of tomboyish Jo, and Meg’s vain attempts to cut a fashionable figure in ‘society’.

    Shivers, the scaredy-est pirate to ever sail the Seven Seas, is back.

He’ll be bringing his best pal, Margo, and his loyal fishmate, Albee, on a clingy-clam and hot dog filled adventure. Like all good pirates, Shivers will just have to grab his swimmies (and his bunny slippers) and jump right into this epic tale.

    Can a tiger lose its stripes? 
    In this first book of the Junglies series, it seems that Aga the tiger has lost his stripes. How could it have happened? 
    Listen to the story to find out how he lost his stripes and if his friends can succeed in helping him find them or if he will be without stripes for the rest of his life. 
    This story teaches young children about honesty and that they should always tell the truth even if they did not do something wrong on purpose. 
    The Junglies stories can all be used to introduce children to the topic of endangered species as every animal represented by a character has at least one subspecies that is endangered. 
    The stories can also be used to introduce children to unity in diversity as the animals in the stories are different but they are best friends.
