Dream Big, Little Pig by Kristi Yamaguchi

“Poppy is a waddling, toddling pig with big dreams. She wants to be a star! But she soon discovers that’s not as easy as it sounds. It’s only when Poppy feels the magic of gliding and sliding, swirling and twirling on ice that our most persistent pig truly believes in herself: Poppy, star of the rink!”

Kristi Yamaguchi is an ice-skating Olympic gold medalist and world champion who knows how to make dreams come true. Through her picture book debut, Kristi inspires children of all ages to dream big!                                     [JPB YAMAGUCHI]

Lucy on the Ball byIlene Cooper

“Ilene Cooper’s fourth story of a boy and his beagle takes Bobby and Lucy into the wild playing fields of grade-school soccer.

“Every kid loves soccer, right? Not Bobby. He likes to watch sports, but he doesn’t really like to play them. He’d rather play with his beagle puppy, Lucy. But when Bobby’s friend Shawn begs him to join up, Bobby finds himself stuck on a soccer team with a stern coach and several kids who have a knack for the sport. Even Lucy is better than Bobby at moving a soccer ball down the field!”    Absolutely Lucy series book 4            [J COOPER]

Ghost Hunt: Chilling Tales of the Unknown by Jason Hawes and Grant Wilson

“An exciting new middle grade collection of spooky paranormal investigations based on REAL ghost hunts from stars of the TV show Ghost Hunters, the number one reality show on cable television!

“Features multiple stories dramatized with cliff hangers and red herrings to heighten suspense. Through the investigations, the reader will learn the ins and outs of ghost hunting, how to spot a hoax, and how to face fear of the paranormal.

“The book includes tips for ghost hunting, including guides to the technical equipment and how to set up your own traps for ghosts. Though presented as fiction, these stories are based on real cases, and the GHOSTS ARE REAL!”         [J HAWES]
