NEW BOOKS: “Princess in Black takes a Vacation” by Shannon and Dean Hale. (Princess in Black # 6) After battling monsters all night, a sleepy Princess in Black decides that she needs a vacation. After all, the Goat Avenger, a new hero who looks oddly familiar, has offered to protect the goats while she takes a much needed break. The very next day Princess Magnolia rides her bicycle to the seaside. But just as Princess Magnolia is about to take a nap on her hammock, she hears a “ROAR!” Seriously? A monster? On the perfect beach? Could a sea monster really ruin this vacation for the Princess in Black?
“Warriors:: Thunder and Shadow” by Shannon and Dean Hale. (A Vision of Shadows #2) Nearly a moon has passed since Alderpaw returned from his journey to SkyClan’s gorge, where he found the territory taken over by rogues. Now the same vicious cats that drove out Sky-Clan have traced Alderpaw’s path back to the lake… and ShadowClan may be the next to fall.
“Stick Dog Wants a Hot Dog” by Tom Watson. (Stick Dog Series #2) As the dogs embark on their quest for hot dogs, they learn they’re not the only ones on a mission—a band of raccoons is following close behind, and they’re ravenous, too! In this second book in the series, Stick Dog and his four friends, Poo-Poo, Mutt, Stripes, and Karen, must execute a master plan for stealing hot dogs. The closer they get to the hot dog vendor, the more difficult their mission becomes. The five dogs are met with many funny challenges along the way, including having to distract the frankfurter guy and Karen getting locked in a human’s house. No matter what, these dogs have their eyes—and stomachs—on the prize.
“Star Wars: Jedi Academy, Return of the Padawan” by Jeffrey Brown. (Star Wars: Jedi Academy #2) After surviving his first year at Jedi Academy, Roan Novachez thought his second year would be a breeze. Roan feels like he’s drifting apart from his friends, and it’s only made worse when Roan discovers he’s not the amazing pilot he thought he’d be. When the school bullies take him under their wing, he decides they aren’t so bad after all – or are they? This year, Roan will have to face alien poetry tests, menacing robots, food fights, flight simulation class, online bullies, more lightsaber duels, and worst of all … a girl who is mad at him.
“The Goose Girl” by Shannon Hale. Anidori-Kiladra Talianna Isilee, Crown Princess of Kildenree, spends the first years of her life listening to her aunt’s stories and learning the language of the birds, especially the swans. As she grows up Ani develops the skills of animal speech, but is never comfortable speaking with people, so when her silver-tongued lady in waiting leads a mutiny during Ani’s journey to be married in a foreign land, Ani is helpless and cannot persuade anyone to help her. She becomes a goose girl and must use her own special, nearly magical powers to find her way to her true destiny.
