B-R-R-R-R! AH-CHOO! Sneezy the Snowman is cold, cold, cold. To warm up, he drinks cocoa, sits in a hot tub, stands near a warm fire – and melts! But the children know just what to do to build him up again – and make him feel "just right". Hilarity chills the air with playful mixed-media illustrations by Stephen Gilpin as Sneezy attempts to warm himself with some silly results.

<DIV>"Neigh!" said a horse.</P>"Quack!" said a duck.</P>"Beep!" said the friendly</P>Little Blue Truck.</P></P><I>Little Blue Truck</I> is a joyful cacophony of animal and truck sounds that will have youngsters beeping and quacking—and begging for one more go-round! Along the way, readers see that it pays to be kind to our animal friends . . . if we show a friendly respect to others, we’re more likely to get help when we’re, say, stuck in the muck in a truck. Jill McElmurry’s gouache illustrations of wild-eyed farm animals and country roads are warm and wonderful, suiting the cheerfully rhyming text to a T. Beep! </DIV>

Como he dicho, en busca de mi casa andaba. La había dibujado varias veces. Le había cambiado la fachada. Dependiendo de cómo tenía el ánimo, así la iba pintando. En mis sueños la había visto, y hasta había vivido en ella. <br />Solamente veía en la pantalla las líneas de códigos mostrando los chequeos y actualizaciones de rutina del sistema. Al menos, todo indicaba que lo demás estaba funcionando bien. De pronto la pantalla se volvió a componer y me mostró una nave auxiliar de un remolcador del espacio que pasó muy cerca de mí. Esto me indicaba dos cosas. Que iba sin dirección, y que estaba cerca de algún puerto. Pero no sabía cuál..

<b>Geek Girls Rule!</b><br /><br />My name is Angel Sinclair. I’m the youngest senior at Excalibur Academy for the Technologically Gifted and Talented in Washington, DC. I was pushed ahead a year because of my high IQ and considerable prowess behind the keyboard, making me an outcast even among my own peers. I’ve been looking for my dad all my life. A brilliant mathematician and cryptographer, he disappeared under mysterious circumstances when I was eighteen months old. Although my mom tells me I must put him in my past, it only makes me more determined to find out what happened to him. When weird accidents start happening at my school and the vice principal is involved in a deadly incident, I don’t see it as a coincidence. After launching my own investigation, with the aid of an unexpected set of allies calling themselves the White Knights, I discover a threat far greater than I ever could have imagined. I could take my discoveries to the authorities, but my own investigative methods would be at risk. Can anyone say hacking? No, it’s up to me to set things right. My objectives are straightforward: clear the name of the vice principal, learn the truth about my father, and stay alive. In other words, save the day and try not to look too much like a dork while doing it.<br /><br />If you enjoy spy and mystery adventures, you will like the White Knights series by Julie Moffett, YA/NA Mystery and Mayhem Award-winning author and writer of the popular geeky Lexi Carmichael mystery series.
