And lastly for this week, I wanted to feature some new book releases that I am excited about!  All of these have either just been released recently or will be very soon.

You can’t go wrong with Scaredy Squirrel by Canadian author Melanie Watt, and now his adventures will be featured in a graphic novel format!

Gordon Korman’s newest book, Unplugged is now out!  The premise sounds very interesting!  It is so neat to see how Korman is still a very popular author.  His first book, This Can’t Be Happening at Macdonald Hall, was written when he was 12 years old and published when he was 14.  I remember as a kid the amazement I felt that a teenager could be a published author of a very popular book!



The Magic Tree House books remain very popular with our students and I’m sure they will be thrilled to see this new version of Dinosaurs Before Dark in graphic novel format!

Chris Grabenstein is an amazing author with many middle-grade novels to his name, including the very popular Lemoncello series.  His newest book is here- Dog Squad! Grabenstein’s writing is always very funny and interesting – his books are a great way to get reluctant readers interested in reading!

Dog Squad

Happy reading!
