The Fathers Are Coming Home by Margaret Wise Brown and illustrated by Stephen Savage

The description in the book describes this as a “lyrical tribute to all the fathers everywhere who come home to their children—from the rabbit father who hops home to his little bunnies, to the dog father who comes home to his puppies.” This never-before-published book looks like another classic from the author of the classic Goodnight Moon.

FICTION:

The London Eye Mystery by Siobhan Dowd

Guinea Dog by Patrick Jennings

Hitty: Her First Hundred Years by Rachel Field

A patron came in the other day and mentioned that this was one of her favorite books growing up and was ecstatic to be able to share it with her daughter. It’s the tale of a doll and her adventures as she travels from owner to owner over the course of the century. In 1930 the book was awarded the John Newbery Medal for excellence in American children’s literature.

Football Champ: A Football Genius Novel by Tim Green

A novel about a 12 year old boy who’s hired as a consultant for the Atlanta Falcons because he’s a football genius. Combining a mixture of action, intrigue, and a little bit of insider knowledge from author Tim Green, this is a fun read for young readers, especially boys, whether they like football or not.

The Boy Who Climbed Into The Moon by David Almond and illustrated by Polly Dunbar

Sharp Shot by Jack Higgins with Justin Richards

Taking a break from thrilling adults with his stories, author Jack Higgins delivers an action packed book that plays out like a movie and is a nice choice for young readers, especially boys who might have a hard time finding books that will interest them.
