Middle Grade

...And Now Miguel (Used, WIK)

$38.00
More Info

Miguel is right in the middle, too young to get everything he wants, like his older brother Gabriel; too old to be happy with everything he he has, like little Pedro... This last great adventure of a boy and his first great adventure as a man has its own peculiar mystery, its own special enchantment, because it takes place away out there between the Sangre de Cristo Mountains and the gorge of the Rio Grande.

Awarded the 1954 Newbery Medal, ...And now Miguel is based on the film of the same title produced by the author for the U.S. State Department in 1953.

HAVE YOU EVER WANTED TO CREATE A PLACE WHERE YOU COULD MAKE YOUR OWN RULES?

Evie and Rick Lane are determined to transform the Great Pacific Garbage Patch--a real life pile of floating garbage--into an eighth continent, using a special formula developed by their father. This new continent will be a place where their family can make their own rules and live free from the intervention of Winterpole, a global governing agency run by bumbling bureaucrats.

But eleven-year-old pink-and-plastic-obsessed Vesuvia Piffle, the secret mastermind behind the villainous Condo Corp, also has her sights set on this new land, and she wants to use it to build a kind of Miami-on-steroids.

Now, it's a race against time and across the world as the kids gather the items they need to create their continent. Because whoever controls the eighth continent controls our future. And the future can't be both "green" and pink.

When The Happy Orpheline was published, The Horn Book said, "Little girls will wish the book were longer! Garth Williams' strong pen-and-ink sketches, full of life and laughter, match the imagination and French flavor of the writing." Now there is more about the happy orphanage in France. The orphelines, still filled with zest and imagination, find a baby boy on their doorstep. Of course, they are utterly enchanted. The only question is how the twenty fond foster sisters are to manage to keep their new brother. Josine, the youngest, solves the problem in the most thoroughly satisfactory mannner. Once again Natalie Savage Carlson and Garth Williams have joined forces to give young readers a book they will treasure for years to come.

Abhorsen (YR)

$9.00
More Info
The Ninth was strong
and fought with might,
But lone Orannis
was put out of the light,
Broken in two
and buried under hill,
Forever to lie there,
wishing us ill.

So says the song. But Orannis, the Destroyer, is no longer buried under hill. It has been freed from its subterranean prison and now seeks to escape the silver hemispheres, the final barrier to the unleashing of its terrible powers.

Only Lirael, newly come into her inheritance as the Abhorsen-in-Waiting, has any chance of stopping the Destroyer. She and her companions -- Sam, the Disreputable Dog, and Mogget -- have to take that chance. For the Destroyer is the enemy of all Life, and it must be stopped, though Lirael does not know how.

To make matters worse, Sam's best friend, Nick, is helping the Destroyer, as are the necromancer Hedge and the Greater Dead Chlorr, and there has been no word from the Abhorsen Sabriel or King Touchstone.

Everything depends upon Lirael. A heavy, perhaps even impossible burden for a young woman who just days ago was merely a Second Assistant Librarian. With only a vision from the Clayr to guide her, and the rather mixed help of her companions, Lirael must search in both Life and Death for some means to defeat the Destroyer.

Before it is too late. . . .
