      Description
      Meet Hope Roberts. She's eleven years old, and she wants to be an astrophysicist. She loves swimming, Galaxy Girl comic books, and her two rescue dogs. Hope believes it's always a good day to champion a cause, defend an underdog, and save the future. And most of all, she believes in dreaming big. But though Hope seems super strong on the outside, there's another side of her, too. She's just a regular girl trying to survive middle school.

      In the second book in Alyssa Milano's funny and relatable middle-grade series, Hope decides to do whatever it takes to stop the local animal shelter from closing down. It's where she found her two furry best friends -- it has to stay open so the other animals there can find their fur-ever homes, too! But can Hope get the support she needs in time to keep the shelter doors open?

      Hope's relatability, kindness, empathy, and can-do attitude will inspire a generation of do-gooders. This new series is a response to the very palpable feeling that not only can young people save the world -- they will!

      Description
      Everyone knows the characters from Riverdale: popular Archie Andrews, girl-next-door Betty Cooper, angsty Jughead Jones, and the sophisticated Veronica Lodge. But this is not the Riverdale you know and love. Something twisted has awoken in the town with pep. Inspired by the iconic Archie Horror comics, this reimagined universe takes the grittiness of the TV show and adds a paranormal twist.

      Someone is killing the citizens of Riverdale. And after a bloody full moon, Jughead realizes he is the killer! Jughead is a werewolf. Can he keep this secret from his friends -- including werewolf-hunting Betty Cooper? Jughead has to get his dark side under control -- before it is controlling him.

      The Archie Horror series contains all-new, original stories that fans of horror AND fans of Riverdale will eat up!

      Description

      Armadillo and Hare live with their friends in the Big Forest. Hare loves dancing. Armadillo loves cheese sandwiches. Hare loves playing the tuba. Armadillo loves cheese sandwiches. Hare loves his best friend, Armadillo. Armadillo loves Hare - AND cheese sandwiches! They have quite a mix of friends, including an acrobatic wombat, a know-it-all lobster, a hungry jaguar, and (let's not forget) the invisible stick insect.



      Over the course of these ten stories of friendship, Armadillo and Hare will learn some very important lessons:



      - Exercise is important for Armadillos, but so are cheese sandwiches.
      - Big animals like jaguars and small insects get lonely too...and might just be the best of friends.
      - Elephants can cause more damage than thunderstorms.
      - You can still host a forest birthday party even if it's nobody's birthday, as long as everyone is invited.

      Filled with stunning illustrations by Rebecca Bagley, this is a book to be read over and over again.

      Bio
      Many years ago, Jeremy made his first attempt at writing some stories about a small group of animals. They never made it further than his typewriter (laptops hadn’t yet been invented). Forty years later he decided it was time to try again, and a new pair of friends, Armadillo and Hare, came alive. He wanted these tales to be different from his usual comic style, and they are! Jeremy is the bestselling author of over 100, including The Hundred-Mile-an-Hour Dog and My Brother’s Famous Bottom series.




      After Graduating WITH a BA in Graphic Communication, Rebecca meandered pretty quickly into kids' publishing as an assistant designer… and just didn’t leave. She is a freelance illustrator and part-time designer working in kids' publishing, currently based in Bath, England. Rebecca was awarded the Cheltenham Illustration Award in 2016 and has provided editorial illustrations for a number of publications, including Stew, Ithsmus, and Union Features as well as The London Museum.

      Praise for Brute-Cake (The Binder of Doom #1):

      "Fans of the previous series will enjoy this new one as well. The story is easy to follow, with large print, and the numerous grayscale illustrations are humorous, with enough cheeky puns to engage readers transitioning to chapter books. The back of the book includes questions and activities for the classroom as well as eager-reader book clubs... Good, clean, monstrous fun." -- Kirkus Reviews
