Extra Yarn by Mac Barnett, illustrated by Jon Klassen

Everything in Annabelle's town is the white of snow or the dusty black of chimney soot, until she finds a box of yarn of every colour imaginable. The colourful sweater she knits for herself causes quite a stir in the sleepy town but soon everyone and everything is wearing one of their very own. The townspeople are convinced that the yarn will run out, but with each new sweater knit there is always more than enough yarn left over. But when an evil archduke steals her magical box he finds it empty. Enraged, he throws the box into the ocean, cursing the girl and her little town. But things have a way of finding their way back. Brought to life by governor general award winning illustrator Jon Klassen (This is Not My Hat), Mac Barnett's story shows how a simple act can resonate, and teach young readers that there is always 'extra yarn'. For ages 4 - 7 - Mollie [$18.99]
How I Lost You by Janet Gurtler

BBS: Buds Before Studs. That is the motto that Grace and Kya have always embraced. Even though Kya can be reckless and wild and more than a little unpredictable. Even when she lets Grace down and puts her in increasingly difficult situations. No matter what she says or does, Grace knows how vulnerable she is, how much she needs her. But how often can Grace put her own needs aside for her friend? When is it time to let her make her own mistakes and face the consequences? For ages 14 - 17 - Lisa [$11.99]
My Beating Teenage Heart by C.K. Kelly Martin

This book is about a girl who finds herself plummeting, bodyless, through stars. With no memories, no recollections of herself, she finds herself stuck in the proximity of a stranger - a damaged boy. She decides she should help him - she must. An innovative and thought-provoking novel. For ages 13 - 17 - Kaleigh [$14.95]
The Book of Perfectly Perilous Math by Sean Connolly

How do you get your children interested in math problems? You turn them into exciting, thrilling and visually evocative stories of course! Stories that put the child in a situation, with some clues sprinkled throughout the story. The child has to piece together the information that they find, and put the facts together to reason the solution to the math problem. With worksheet space for writing out their work, kids will have fun figuring out 24 different challenges, such as how to dodge spies on the Orient Express, how soon the tornado will arrive at their door, and how they can safely deep sea dive to get treasure on the ocean floor. For ages 10+ - Nadine [$14.95]
The Haunting of Charles Dickens by Lewis Buzbee

Meg Pickel's brother has gone missing. In her quest to bring him home, Meg enlists the help of family friend and champion of the children of London, Mr. Charles Dickens. Together the sleuthing pair uncover the seedy underbelly of Dickensian London, from sham seances to child labour. This gripping novel gives young readers a taste of life in Dickensian England as well as an introduction to the social ills Dickens condemned in his own life. For ages 9 - 12 - Katherine [$8.99]
The Wee Free Men by Terry Pratchett

Nine year old Tiffany Aching spends most of her time doing chores around the farm, making cheese (which she is fond of) and watching her sticky, baby brother Wentworth (which she is less fond of). Then, odd things begin to happen - little blue men appear, there's a monster in the river and a headless horseman down the lane. Nightmares are beginning to trickle down the hills of the Chalk and young witch-to-be Tiffany is all that stands between the monsters of Fairyland and her home. Forced into Fairyland to rescue her kidnapped brother, Tiffany is armed only with a frying pan, her common sense, and the Nac Mac Feegle - a clan of sheep stealing, sword wielding, six inch high blue men. In the first installment of this young adult series Pratchett spins a narrative full of suspense, humour and an unusual brand of magic, certain to leave fans new and old enthralled. For ages 11 and up - Lydia [$12.99]
