Ivy is quiet and full of ideas. She spends most of her time learning how to be a witch. Each girl thinks the other one is weird. Each girl thinks she could never be friends with the other. But sometimes opposites can become the best of friends because they’re opposites.</p><p><strong>Ivy & Bean's Secret Treasure Box (Books 1-3) includes:</strong></p><ul><li><strong>Book 1: <em>Ivy + Bean</em></strong>: Both girls were sure they would never like each other, but when Bean finds herself in a pickle, Ivy helps out with a magical spell.

Potions—and plumbing—come to the rescue.</li><li><strong>Book 3: <em>Ivy + Bean Break the Fossil Record</em></strong>: Bean wants to break a world record, but all she seems to be breaking is dishes. Out in Bean’s backyard, Ivy and Bean dig up a pile of ancient bones and discover that they are record-breakers: they’re the youngest paleontologists in the world! The problem is that nobody believes them.</li></ul><p><strong>If you and your child liked <em>Junie B. Jones, Magic Tree House</em> books, and <em>Princess in Black;</em> you'll love <em>Ivy & Bean.</em></strong></p>

<b>“Funny, exciting, and ultimately epic. Wow. I can’t <i>wait</i> for the next one.” —Adam Gidwitz, author of the <i>New York Times</i> bestseller <i>A Tale Dark and Grimm</i></b><br /><br /><b>“Set in a magical world filled with incredible creatures from folklore, this fast-paced fantasy will keep readers turning the pages . . . A captivating series opener.” —<i>Booklist</i>, starred review</b><br /><br /> Magic is fading from the Wild Wood. To renew it, goblins must perform an ancient ritual involving the rarest of their kind—a newborn changeling. But when the night arrives to trade a human baby for a goblin one, something goes terribly wrong. After laying the changeling in a human infant’s crib, the goblin Kull is briefly distracted. By the time he turns back, the changeling has already perfectly mimicked the human child. Too perfectly: Kull cannot tell them apart, so he leaves both babies behind.<br /><br /> Tinn and Cole are raised as human twins, neither knowing what secrets may be buried deep inside one of them. When they are thirteen years old, a mysterious message arrives, calling the brothers to be heroes and protectors of magic. The boys must leave their sleepy town and risk their lives in the Wild Wood, journeying through the Deep Dark to reach the goblin horde and uncover who they truly are.<br /><br /> In this first book in a new fantasy-adventure series, <i>New York Times</i> bestselling author William Ritter takes readers on a journey of monsters, magic, and discovery.

In their first encounter, demigod Percy Jackson and magician Carter Kane had to battle a giant crocodile on Long Island. A month later, Annabeth Chase ran into Carter's sister, Sadie, on the A train to Rockaway, where the pair fought a god named Serapis. Now trouble is brewing again, this time on Governor's Island. An ancient Egyptian magician named Setne has come back from the dead and is experimenting with Egyptian and Greek magic, trying to become a god himself. He's so powerful and tricky that all four—Percy, Annabeth, Carter, and Sadie—have to team up against him. But their usual weapons and spells aren't going to cut it this time. Will the heroes be taken down by a wannabe god who looks like Elvis, or will they rise to the challenge? Told from Percy's point of view, this third demigod-magician crossover story has all of the spunk and action that Rick Riordan fans crave.

Jenna and Hallie, twelve-year-old identical twin sisters, live a fairly normal life. They have a mom, Lou, who is pretty cool as far as moms go. They have four best friends: Alan, Jules, Lindsay, and Thomas. They go to school. They play games. It's all normal. That is, until it's not...<br /><br />When Jenna and Hallie arrive home from school to find a stranger in their kitchen, she tells the twins the truth: they were born in another world called Pawcombe, and it is their birthright (theirs, and their four best friends') to put an end to the evil man reigning terror over Pawcombe. This will mean journeying back to a lush, forested world they don't remember, meeting strange creatures, and fighting in deadly battles. They are the only ones who can help. They are the hope Pawcombe has waited for. They are the Sought Six.

In this adventure, Annabeth encounters more oddities in the subway than usual, including a two-headed monster and a younger blond girl who reminds her a little of herself. This is the story fans have asked for, in which Annabeth Chase teams up with Sadie Kane. The demigod daughter of Athena and the young magician from Brooklyn House take on a larger-than-life foe from the ancient world. Perhaps even more disturbing than the power-hungry god they encounter is the revelation that he is being controlled by someone—someone all too familiar to Sadie. <br />As a special bonus, the first chapter of THE BLOOD OF OLYMPUS, the final book in the Heroes of Olympus series, is included.

The trouble starts when Apollo introduces Percy and his friend Grover the satyr to the Chryseae Celedones. Three golden women--living statues--appear in front of them, and sing one blissful chord. Apollo has a concert tonight at Mount Olympus, and he needs the Celedones as his backup singers. But there should be a quartet, not a trio--one of the singers has gone rogue. It's up to Percy and Grover to find the missing Celedon somewhere in New York City before she causes any problems. Capturing an attention-seeking automaton in a crowd of mortals is going to require some cagey thinking. Will Percy and Grover succeed, or hit a sour note?

Swords, sorcery, and dragons: The Lord of the Rings meets Eragon.<br /><br />"Anyone who enjoys dragons, elves, and other mythical creatures would enjoy this book." ★★★★★<br /><br />A year has passed since the Tanaan dragon Jaax and his human ward, Jahrra, came to live within the protected boundaries of Lidien, the great City of Light. But even the safest places in Ethöes can harbor enemies, and one cannot hide from one's fate forever.<br /><br />At the onset of yet another departure, Jahrra realizes there is more to this next step in her journey than she previously thought. With Lidien fading in the distance, she understands she is finally leaving behind not just her friends, but also her childhood and a life once filled with dreams and illusions of safety and love. The road ahead is perilous, and Jahrra knows she will face many trials before coming to stand before her destiny. With each passing day, the threat of the Crimson King grows stronger, and Jaax and their allies will need the help of the legendary Creecemind dragons if they wish to overthrow their common enemy.<br /><br />Before they can present their case before the king of the Creecemind, however, Jahrra and her Tanaan guardian must make a perilous journey north through the mountains, where danger and uncertainty lurks in every crevasse and behind the face of everyone they meet. Their trust in others must be bartered carefully, for the Tyrant's influence stretches far and wide. And even if they do reach Nimbronia, the frozen City in the Clouds, their troubles may not be over. If the king of the ice dragons cannot be convinced to join their cause, then their fate, and the fate of Ethöes, may very well be sealed in sorrow and defeat.
