A Tale of Sorcery by Chris Colfer

A year ago, Brystal Evergreen made a deal with Death.  To keep her life, she must find the Immortal.  But she isn’t even close.  And with war brewing, she has a lot of other problems that threaten to keep her from accomplishing her goal.  Book three in the Tale of Magic series.

Skylan B. says: “It was like being in a whole new world!  I love the big plot twist in the middle.”

A computer glitch sends Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert not the boy they expected to foster but a girl instead.  As Anne settles into the Avon-Lea apartment complex, she must grapple with school competitions, friendly rivalries, and a growing crush. From the author of Jo.

Ms. Krysta says: “Anne Shirley meets the contemporary world in this graphic novel adaptation of Anne of Green Gables, where Anne lives in an apartment, competes in a STEM competition with rival Gilbert Blythe, and falls in love with her best friend Diana Barry.  A fun take on a classic tale.  If you like this one, also check out the modern adaptation (and graphic novel) Anne of West Philly.”

Minions Volume 1: Banana! By Renauld Collin

The minions return in a series of humorous shorts focusing on everything from interviewing for jobs to using gym equipment.

Ms. Faith says: “This was laugh out loud funny! There are no words and every page is a new ‘story.’ It is a very short, easy, entertaining read and I highly recommend it for a good laugh. And, come on, Gru’s minions are the best!”

Minions Volume 1: Banana! By Renauld Collin

Kitchen witch Planchette finds out her new house is haunted, and must team up with some of the local witches to exorcize the ghosts.

Ms. Krysta says: “Unfamiliar is a cute, humorous story about a young kitchen witch named Planchette who moves to a haunted house, but is unable to remove the ghosts herself.  What follows is a sweet tale of found family as Planchette meets her neighbors, enlists their help, and helps them in return.  The quirky art style adds another layer of interest.  Recommended for fans of Hooky and The Okay Witch.

Scurry by Mac Smith

With the humans gone, a colony of house mice continue to loot the abandoned homes, fearing to advance beyond their known boundaries and way of life.  But when rumors come of a wrecked delivery truck, with abundant food for the taking, Wix and a band of brave scouts must venture into the unknown facing many perils–poison, traps, and even cats.

Iz B. says: “The journey Wix goes on will leave you on the edge of your seat, as the illustrations tell a colorful story.”
