<p><b>Madeleine L'Engle's ground-breaking science fiction and fantasy classic, soon to be a major motion picture.</b></p><p>It was a dark and stormy night; Meg Murry, her small brother Charles Wallace, and her mother had come down to the kitchen for a midnight snack when they were upset by the arrival of a most disturbing stranger.</p><p>"Wild nights are my glory," the unearthly stranger told them. "I just got caught in a downdraft and blown off course. Let me sit down for a moment, and then I'll be on my way. Speaking of ways, by the way, there is such a thing as a tesseract."</p><p>A tesseract (in case the reader doesn't know) is a wrinkle in time. To tell more would rob the reader of the enjoyment of Miss L'Engle's unusual book. <i>A Wrinkle in Time</i>, winner of the Newbery Medal in 1963, is the story of the adventures in space and time of Meg, Charles Wallace, and Calvin O'Keefe (athlete, student, and one of the most popular boys in high school). They are in search of Meg's father, a scientist who disappeared while engaged in secret work for the government on the tesseract problem.</p><p><i>A Wrinkle in Time</i> is the winner of the 1963 Newbery Medal. It is the first book in The Time Quintet, which consists of <i>A Wrinkle in Time, A Wind in the Door, A Swiftly Tilting Planet, Many Waters</i>, and <i>An Acceptable Time</i>.</p><p> <i>A Wrinkle in Time </i>is soon to be a movie from Disney, directed by Ava DuVernay, starring Storm Reid, Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon and Mindy Kaling.</p><p>This title has Common Core connections.</p><p><b>Books by Madeleine L'Engle</b><br /><b></b><br /><b>A Wrinkle in Time Quintet</b><br /><b></b><i>A Wrinkle in Time</i><br /><i>A Wind in the Door</i><br /><i>A Swiftly Tilting Planet</i><br /><i>Many Waters</i><br /><i>An Acceptable Time</i></p><p><i>A Wrinkle in Time: The Graphic Novel</i> by Madeleine L'Engle; adapted & illustrated by Hope Larson</p><p><i>Intergalactic P.S. 3</i> by Madeleine L'Engle; illustrated by Hope Larson: A standalone story set in the world of <i>A Wrinkle in Time</i>.</p><p><b>The Austin Family Chronicles</b><br /><i>Meet the Austins</i> (Volume 1) <br /><i>The Moon by Night</i> (Volume 2) <br /><i>The Young Unicorns</i> (Volume 3)<br /><i>A Ring of Endless Light </i>(Volume 4) A Newbery Honor book!<br /><i>Troubling a Star</i> (Volume 5)</p><p><b>The Polly O'Keefe books</b><br /><b></b><i>The Arm of the Starfish</i><br /><i>Dragons in the Waters</i><br /><i>A House Like a Lotus</i><br /><i></i><br /><i>And Both Were Young</i><br /><i></i><br /><i>Camilla</i><br /><i></i><br /><i>The Joys of Love</i></p>

<b>Betrayed. Broken. Poisoned.</b><br /><br />No longer alone, Sam and Alec struggle to find time to continue their studies together. Sam knows that she is more than the lowborn she’d long believed, now living and training in the palace, but still doesn’t feel as if she quite fits in. Worse, it seems as if Alec has moved on without her, preferring his new life in the university. <br /><br />Alec has quickly risen in rank, but that only draws attention to him. Learning from master physickers has its benefits, but there are dangers and he’s not certain whether he can trust the new friends he’s made. Evidence continues to mount of a conspiracy within the university, and it’s one he’ll need Sam’s help in understanding.<br /><br />While Alec tries to reach out to Sam, she searches for Marin and answers that might unlock her full potential. What she finds instead is a threat to the safety in the city, protections that have long prevented the Thelns from reaching Verdholm, if they haven’t already breached them.<br /><br />Together, they are the key to stopping Marin, but can they master their new places in the city in time?

Award-winning author Karen Healey and co-writer Robyn Fleming have created thrilling high fantasy adventure in an intricate world of magic and intrigue.<br /><br />My father's eyes were steady on my face as I blew out the last bubbles of my breath. I pressed my knife into his hand but he could not make his fingers close around the hilt. I screamed for help with my first lungful of air, and dove again with my second. I was too late.<br /><br />Fourteen-year-old Taver didn't know he was a nobleman's bastard until his real father died. Eleven-year-old Elaku has always known she was the bastard daughter of the same nobleman. When the two siblings meet in the Empress of Timbra's palace, they become fast friends.<br /><br />Around them, intrigue and rumour swirl. Not everybody is happy with the rule of the Empress of Timbra. Some have plans for Taver and Elaku. And when treachery and war threaten their home, Taver and Elaku must rely on their magic, their wits, and each other to have any chance of preventing disaster.<br /><br />""Reminiscent of the best of Robin Hobb, Tamora Pierce and Trudi Canavan, The Empress of Timbra is a clever, captivating and heartfelt read accessible to fantasy lovers of any age. Healey and Fleming have created a future YA classic." Foz Meadows, An Accident of Stars, A Tyranny of Queens.<br /><br />"[The Empress of Timbra] gives me the same feels as the Patricia McKillip/Tamora Pierce fantasy adventures I read as a teen. Just wonderful!" - Stephanie Burgis, The Dragon with a Chocolate Heart, Snowspelled.<br /><br />"This book made me remember the heady pleasure of being a kid consumed by reading." - Marianne Kirby, Dust Buth Revival<br /><br /><br />

Now a major motion picture.<br /><br />A great modern classic and the prelude to THE LORD OF THE RINGS. Bilbo Baggins is a hobbit who enjoys a comfortable, unambitious life, rarely traveling any farther than his pantry or cellar. But his contentment is disturbed when the wizard Gandalf and a company of dwarves arrive on his doorstep one day to whisk him away on an adventure. They have launched a plot to raid the treasure hoard guarded by Smaug the Magnificent, a large and very dangerous dragon. Bilbo reluctantly joins their quest, unaware that on his journey to the Lonely Mountain he will encounter both a magic ring and a frightening creature known as Gollum.<br /><br />A glorious account of a magnificent adventure, filled with suspense and seasoned with a quiet humor that is irresistible . . . All those, young or old, who love a fine adventurous tale, beautifully told, will take The Hobbit to their hearts. -New York Times Book Review

<b>Blind. Outcast. Accursed. From the meanest of beginnings, greatness will rise.</b><br /><br />Abandoned at birth by her parents, Auli-Ambar is seen as a child blighted by a callous talon-stroke of fate. A worthless burden. She is blind, severely disfigured, and fit only for the most menial tasks. Then, a simple act of kindness changes her life. Flown to the Halls of the Dragons, the painfully shy girl becomes a cleaner of Dragon roosts, and a helpless wanderer of the Dragon Library.<br /><br />Here, Auli is able to walk amidst the lore she is drawn to so profoundly. Touch it. Imagine worlds within scrolls. She thrills to the hallowed scents of knowledge, but aches for what blindness has forever denied her. In the cruellest of ironies, Auli discovers she possesses a magic that makes people and Dragons forget her very existence. This is disremembrance, the accursed power of loneliness. She can only despair.<br /><br />One will not forget. Deep amidst the forbidden racks of draconic scroll lore, where Auli-Ambar has unwittingly breached the protective wards, the young Dragon scholar, Arkurion the Mercury Blue, will discover her true gift and ignite its flame. Now, in the environs of a magical library overseen by the mighty Dragon Librarian Sazutharr, the extraordinary courage and integrity of a blind girl will finally be given the chance to blossom.<br /><br />Little did they suspect that the fate of all Dragonkind would rest in her hands.<br /><br /><i><b>Series note</b><br /><i>Scrolls of Fire</i> is a parallel storyline to my acclaimed Dragonfriend series. Auli-Ambar’s story intermeshes deeply with the fates of Hualiama and Grandion and intersects the most critical events of their lives. Also, if you ever wondered what Dragons get up to in a library, look no further!<br /><br />The Dragon Librarian is tale for lore-lovers, scrollworms and librarians the world over. They are secretly Dragons. I told you first.</i>

<b>-- Get book 1 on SALE for $0.99! --</b><br /><br />Tension is high at the Royal Institute of Magic, as the Directors of each of the Departments – Spellswords, Wardens, Traders, Scholars and Diplomats – work together with their allies to push back the dark elf invasion, led by King Suktar. <br /> <br />But Ben Greenwood knows the truth: the only real way they are going to win is if he and the Guardians do the unthinkable and infiltrate the heart of the dark elf homeland – ending the evil king’s rule once and for all.<br /><br />As if that wasn’t enough, a new power has come into play. Queen Elizabeth was aware of it all those years ago, and she predicted it would continue to influence their mission to the bitter end: the High Council. <br /><br />Can the Guardians harness the strange magic of the armour?
