return to augie hobble Return to Augie Hobble by Lane Smith

“Augie Hobble lives in a fairy tale–or at least Fairy Tale Place, the down-on-its-luck amusement park managed by his father. Yet his life is turning into a nightmare: he’s failed creative arts and has to take summer school, the girl he has a crush on won’t acknowledge him, and Hogg Wills and the school bullies won’t leave him alone. Worse, a succession of mysterious, possibly paranormal, events have him convinced that he’s turning into a werewolf. At least Augie has his notebook and his best friend Britt to confide in–until the unthinkable happens and Augie’s life is turned upside down, and those mysterious, possibly paranormal, events take on a different meaning.”                              [J SMITH]

eyewitness universeUniverse by Robin Kerrod

“Whether you have special interest in space exploration or the origins of the universe, or you want to find more resources available outside of school, Eyewitness: Universe is the ideal choice for learning more about the universe.

“DK’s Eyewitness series is perfect. It  presents information with a combination of photography, small nuggets of information, and fact-packed annotation so you can really dig into topics without becoming overwhelmed. One picture at a time, Eyewitness books teach big subjects in easy ways.”     [J523.1 KERROD]
