his magical follow-up to Horten’s Miraculous Mechanisms continues Stuart’s amazing adventures —with more enchantment, more surprises, and more thrills. When we last left 10-year-old Stuart, he had just recovered his great-uncle Tony’s long-lost magic workshop. Now all the priceless tricks are on display in the Beeton Museum—and Stuart is junior curator of the exhibit! With even more page-turning action, this second book in the exciting middle-grade series does a magic trick of its own: it’s even better than the first!

Praise for Horten’s Miraculous Mechanisms: “Wacky, funny and ever so mysterious, this clever tale hits the ground running and never lets up....A vastly engaging, must-read mystery infused with the perfect touch of captivating conjuration—er, magic.”

Little Critter® I Am Helping Mercer Mayer Little Critter IS a good helper…although not everything goes quite as planned. Whether he's watering the garden (and sprinkling his mother), making the beds (and jumping on them), shopping (he never forgets the candy), or literally vacuuming up the rug, Little Critter lends a hand--in his own special way. Pitching in has never been as entertaining!

After illustrating others' picture books, Mercer Mayer created his first truly original work with A Boy, a Dog, and a Frog (The Dial Press 1967), followed a year later by his classic picture book There's a Nightmare in My Closet. In 1976, he joined Golden Publishing and soon began publishing his phenomenally successful Little Critter® and Little Monster® series.

Little Critter® I Am Sharing Mercer Mayer Sharing can be hard--but Little Critter always tries his best to share everything with Little Sister, from his crayons to his puppy. Now, if he could only teach her to share back…A funny, realistic, and reassuring look at a child's struggle to give up (however temporarily) “my stuff.” After illustrating others' picture books, Mercer Mayer created his first truly original work with A Boy, a Dog, and a Frog (The Dial Press 1967), followed a year later by his classic picture book There's a Nightmare in My Closet.

Watch Your Tongue, Cecily Beasley Lane Fredrickson, illustrated by Jon Davis Cecily Beasley is never polite--she won't say thank you, please, or goodnight. She slurps her food, refuses to share, and sticks her tongue out everywhere. But this rude little girl gets her comeuppance in this rambunctious, rhyming picture book that makes its point with irresistible humor. Every child has heard the words, “Don't make that face. It might freeze that way!” Well, that's exactly what happens to Cecily--and to make things worse, a bird builds a nest on her outstretched tongue! But only when the chicks hatch will Cecily finally learn a lesson she'll never forget. Lane Fredrickson is a veteran of the United States Air Force. She holds a degree in psychology and is working toward a degree in English. Cecily Beasley is Lane's first published children's book. She lives in Delray Beach, FL.

From the moment Otis and Cody Carson arrive on Skull Island to stay at their aunt’s inn, they know something is wrong. A giant snake turns up on their aunt’s bed, one of the rooms is violently ransacked, and then a celebrity guest goes missing. Could a ghost be responsible— or pirates?

When Cody and Otis Chandler, their father, and their cousin Rae journey to France, they discover that there’s a crime wave going on: hundreds of paintings have been stolen and replaced by forgeries. When the thief snatches their dad’s painting, the twins can’t resist getting involved.
