<p><b>Dr. Seuss’s wonderfully wise <i>Oh, the Places You’ll Go! i</i>s the perfect send-off for grads—from nursery school, high school, college, and beyond! <br /></b><br />From soaring to high heights and seeing great sights to being left in a Lurch on a prickle-ly perch, Dr. Seuss addresses life’s ups and downs with his trademark humorous verse and illustrations, while encouraging readers to find the success that lies within. In a starred review, <i>Booklist</i> notes, “Seuss’s message is simple but never sappy: life may be a ‘Great Balancing Act,’ but through it all ‘There’s fun to be done.’” A perennial favorite and a perfect gift for anyone starting a new phase in their life!</p>

<b>NOW A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE STARRING JULIA ROBERTS, OWEN WILSON, AND JACOB TREMBLAY!</b><br /><br /><b>Over 6 million people have read the #1 <i>New York Times</i> bestseller WONDER and have fallen in love with Auggie Pullman, an ordinary boy with an extraordinary face. </b><br /><br /><b>The book that inspired the Choose Kind movement.</b><br /><br /><i>I won't describe what I look like. Whatever you're thinking, it's probably worse. </i><br /><br />August Pullman was born with a facial difference that, up until now, has prevented him from going to a mainstream school. Starting 5th grade at Beecher Prep, he wants nothing more than to be treated as an ordinary kid—but his new classmates can’t get past Auggie’s extraordinary face. <b>WONDER</b>, now a #1 <i>New York Times</i> bestseller and included on the Texas Bluebonnet Award master list, begins from Auggie’s point of view, but soon switches to include his classmates, his sister, her boyfriend, and others. These perspectives converge in a portrait of one community’s struggle with empathy, compassion, and acceptance. <br /><br />"Wonder is the best kids' book of the year," said Emily Bazelon, senior editor at Slate.com and author of <i>Sticks and Stones: Defeating the Culture of Bullying and Rediscovering the Power of Character and Empathy</i>. In a world where bullying among young people is an epidemic, this is a refreshing new narrative full of heart and hope. <b>R.J. Palacio</b> has called her debut novel “a meditation on kindness” —indeed, every reader will come away with a greater appreciation for the simple courage of friendship. Auggie is a hero to root for, a diamond in the rough who proves that <b><b>you can’t blend in when you were born to stand out.</b> </b><br /><br />Join the conversation: <b>#thewonderofwonder<br /></b>

<b><b>50 years of an iconic classic! This international bestseller and inspiration for a beloved movie is a </b>heroic story of friendship and belonging.</b><br /><br /> No one ever said life was easy. But Ponyboy is pretty sure that he's got things figured out. He knows that he can count on his brothers, Darry and Sodapop. And he knows that he can count on his friends—true friends who would do anything for him, like Johnny and Two-Bit. But not on much else besides trouble with the Socs, a vicious gang of rich kids whose idea of a good time is beating up on “greasers” like Ponyboy. At least he knows what to expect—until the night someone takes things too far.<br /><br /><i>The Outsiders</i> is a dramatic and enduring work of fiction that laid the groundwork for the YA genre. S. E. Hinton's classic story of a boy who finds himself on the outskirts of regular society remains as powerful today as it was the day it was first published.<p><b>"<i>The Outsiders</i> transformed young-adult fiction from a genre mostly about prom queens, football players and high school crushes to one that portrayed a darker, truer world." —<i>The New York Times</i></b></p><b>"Taut with tension, filled with drama." —<i>The Chicago Tribune</i></b><br /><br /><b>"[A] classic coming-of-age book." —<i>Philadelphia Daily News</i><br /><br />A <i>New York Herald Tribune</i> Best Teenage Book<br />A <i>Chicago Tribune</i> Book World Spring Book Festival Honor Book<br />An ALA Best Book for Young Adults<br />Winner of the Massachusetts Children's Book Award</b><br /><br /><br /><i>From the Trade Paperback edition.</i>

Addressed in green ink on yellowish parchment with a purple seal, they are swiftly confiscated by his grisly aunt and uncle. Then, on Harry's eleventh birthday, a great beetle-eyed giant of a man called Rubeus Hagrid bursts in with some astonishing news: Harry Potter is a wizard, and he has a place at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. An incredible adventure is about to begin!</p><p><em>Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone is also available as an Illustrated Kindle-in-Motion edition.</em><p>

The book no one can stop talking about . . .<br /><br />In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by twelve outlying districts. The Capitol is harsh and cruel and keeps the districts in line by forcing them all to send one boy and one girl between the ages of twelve and eighteen to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV. Sixteen-year-old Katniss Everdeen, who lives alone with her mother and younger sister, regards it as a death sentence when she is forced to represent her district in the Games. But Katniss has been close to dead and survival, for her, is second nature. Without really meaning to, she becomes a contender. But if she is to win, she will have to start making choices that weigh survival against humanity and life against love. <br /><br />New York Times bestselling author Suzanne Collins delivers equal parts suspense and philosophy, adventure and romance, in this searing novel set in a future with unsettling parallels to our present.
