New books

September 5, 2008

I just browsed the new book carts in the warehouse and a few books stood out. The Aliens are Coming by Colin McNaughton looks like a fun storytime book. The rhyming text describes the aliens that are on their way to conquer earth and the silly illustrations will have kids scrambling to get an up-close look at the details. It ends with a fun twist that should leave your audience in giggles.

Curse of the Night Wolf, the first in the new Barnaby Grimes series, should attract fans of horror and The Edge Chronicles. Paul Stewart and Chris Riddell (co-authors of The Edge Chronicles,) have teamed up again for this new series. The next installment, Return of the Emerald Skull, is due out in February ’09. No word on when the third one, Legion of the Dead, will be published in the US.

And for your Adventures in Odyssey fans, we just received Adventures in Odyssey: The Official Guide, and it already has several holds!
