Book/Author Spotlight. Giveaway: The Whizbang Machine. Ends Dec 5th


28591745

About the Book: After years of running from his tragic past, Jack Yale
books a flight home. With him is a typewriter that is intended to be a gift for his granddaughter, Elizabeth. The minute Elizabeth’s fingers cradle the large black and cream keys the machine responses: popping, sizzling, and roaring to life with a Whiz-Whiz-BANG! Elizabeth quickly discovers the typewriter has powers beyond anything she has ever seen. The more she types, the more the machine spells out guarded secrets that need to be revealed in order to set history straight and remove a curse that has been on their family for centuries. To solve the mystery, Elizabeth Yale, alongside Jack, will have to crack the code of the Whizbang Machine. What they find challenges their most basic assumptions of their family, the history of the typewriter, and even Elizabeth’s father’s death. The ultimate goal is to remove the curse. The question is: will Jack and Elizabeth be able to carry out their mission? http://authordanielleavann.com/books/

Book Spotlight: Diary of a Wimpy Kid. Double Down


30051627

About the Book: The pressure’s really piling up on Greg Heffley. The only thing he’s good at is playing video games, but his parents want him to broaden his horizons by doing something—anything!—else.

When Greg finds an old video camera in his basement, he thinks he may have discovered just the thing to prove he’s got big-time talent. With the help of his best friend, Rowley, Greg hatches a plan to make a scary movie . . . and to become rich and famous in the process.

But is doubling down on movie-making a smart plan? Or is it just a recipe for doubling Greg’s troubles?

About the Book: Join Ellie the Elephant and her friend, Pudgy the Penguin, on a fun visit to the farm in this delightful children’s book cowritten by author Marci Fair and her twelve-year-old daughter Elle.

Ellie and Pudgy—characters based on Elle’s two favorite stuffed animals—have had many grand adventures. Now, in the fifth installment of the Amazing Adventures of Ellie the Elephant series, the duo decides to take a look at the origins of the food they eat every day.

This decision takes them to a farm and garden where they get a chance to ride on a big red tractor, feed a bottle to a baby goat, sit on eggs to keep them warm, and take part in many other hands-on experiences that will delight both children and parents. Readers will learn about different types of farm-grown food, as well as meet many friendly, real animals.

At the end of the day, Ellie and Pudgy settle in for a snack made from all the different foods they found at the farm. Their unbreakable friendship and sense of adventure are sure to encourage young readers to use their imaginations when it comes to their own favorite stuffed animals!
