      Description
      Savvy rescue dog McTavish finds a surprising way to ease young Betty’s worries about moving to a new house—and a new school—in this fourth adventure told with warmth and wit.

      When Pa Peachey comes home in a happy-go-lucky mood—and singing!—the family is concerned. Pa has never not been grumpy after work! But when Ma and siblings Ava and Ollie learn that Pa has gotten a new job—which means moving to an appealing new house—they are all pretty quick to get on board. Even McTavish the dog is excited to make a canine pal in the new park nearby. Only the youngest sibling, Betty, remains out of sorts—nervous about changing schools, making friends, and leaving behind the house where she and McTavish grew up. But McTavish, with his special canine senses—and his vow, as a “rescue dog,” to save the family whenever need arises—knows how to help Betty regain her confidence and feel at home again. With tenderness and gentle humor, the Peachey family returns in McTavish on the Move, the fourth book in Meg Rosoff’s charming series about beloved dog McTavish and his family.

      The latest tale from Deckawoo Drive—and New York Times best-selling creators Kate DiCamillo and Chris Van Dusen—is a balm for young worrywarts facing the unknown.

      Welcome back to Deckawoo Drive for a sixth endearing installment in the companion series to Kate DiCamillo’s New York Times best-selling Mercy Watson books. Frank Endicott is a worrier. He worries about lions, submarines, black holes, leprosy, and armadillos. He lists his worries alphabetically in a notebook and suffers vivid nightmares that even a certain neighborhood pig can’t dispatch. When he accompanies Eugenia Lincoln on an errand to duplicate a key at her favorite dark and dusty thrift shop, Frank earns fresh cause for alarm. Odd Buddy Lamp, the shop’s proprietor, has sent them home with the original key and its copy. Can Frank come to terms with the mystery without buckling under his mounting dread? With a little help from friends (old and new), hot cocoa, and some classic short stories read aloud, the prognosis is good.

      The latest book from “Tales from Deckawoo Drive” might be DiCamillo’s most charming offering yet in the series…. The tale is as uplifting as it is literary, and the author tells a genuine story that may inspire readers to be like Franklin, a child open to receiving his very own mysterious, ­life-changing key…. DiCamillo pens a glorious love letter to childhood uncertainty and the powerful and transformative world of reading.
