The case of the perilous palace/ Jordan Stratford

February 5th, 2019 by Susan Rowe, Library Director

Ada’s imperious grandmother has absolutely shut the Wollstonecraft Detective Agency down–until they get a case from a princess, that is.

The princess Alexandrina Victoria, age 9 (who will grow up to be Queen Victoria), is the most closely watched girl in England. She is never alone. Every morsel she eats is catalogued. Every visitor overseen. Every move noted down. She has but one thing of her own–a sketchbook she uses as a secret diary, where she records her private thoughts in code. But now, somehow, that sketchbook has disappeared.

Carnival magic/ Amy Ephron

February 5th, 2019 by Susan Rowe, Library Director

Tess and Max are back in England for another summer with their Aunt Evie – this time by the seashore in South Devon. And they’re incredibly excited about the travelling carnival that’s come to town. There are rides, games, acrobats, The House of Mirrors – and even a psychic, with a beautiful wagon all her own.

Following Baxter/Barbara Kerley

February 5th, 2019 by Susan Rowe, Library Director

Eleven-year-old Jordie Marie Wallace has been waiting forever for someone to move in next door, so she is thrilled when Professor Reece arrives: she has a laboratory in her basement and an extraordinary dog named Baxter—who seems to understand everything Jordie says.
Jordie and her younger brother T.J. begin walking Baxter and helping Professor Reese in the lab. But being lab assistants ends up being more than Jordie and T.J. bargained for and leads them to a secret neither of them expected.

Mouseling’s words/ Shutta Crum

February 5th, 2019 by Susan Rowe, Library Director

Mouseling's WordsMouseling has grown up surrounded by words, scraps of paper torn from menus. Once he leaves the nest, he decides that discovering words is his mission in life and finds more words than he can count, spelling and sounding them out, thrilled by each one. The library offers a treasure trove of words, also danger: a cat. When Mouseling realizes that the cat would rather know what’s in the books than eat him for dinner, he starts reading aloud to the cat—the best gift he can give in exchange for the world of stories.

The pirates of Scurvy Sands/ Jonny Duddle

January 30th, 2019 by Susan Rowe, Library Director

This summer, Matilda is going on holiday with her friends, the Jolley-Rogers. Their destination is the island of Scurvy Sands – a favourite holiday destination for pirates.   When Matilda arrives, the swashbuckling residents are not too impressed with her. She has clean teeth, tidy clothes and doesn’t smell like she’s been at sea for six months without washing – she’s definitely no pirate.

TARGET: UNITED STATES CABINET—–A sniper’s bullet strikes another devastating blow to the heart of Washington with the assassination of a prominent Senator.

TARGET: ALEX CROSS—–The new President calls on Alex Cross to lead an unparalleled FBI investigation to help capture America’s most wanted criminal.
