Gentle listeners and librarians, Recorded Books is celebrating spring with a bouquet of exciting new recordings for children of all ages. I have to start by saying Melissa de la Cruz’s new YA series is amazing! I can’t wait for you to hear this one. It’s hard to believe that the author of Blue Bloods and Witches of East End could top herself, but in The Ring and the Crown she creates an alternative reality where the British Royals dominate the world with magic and machinations. Then, for a darker view of magic’s political power, we have Sally Green’s thrilling debut, Half Bad. This is already getting raves as a Publishers Lunch YA Buzz Book for spring/summer 2014, and with starred reviews from Publishers Weekly and Booklist, it’s a must-have for every library.

Middle-graders will welcome the return of Newbery honoree Cynthia Lord when they dive into her wholly delightful new book, Half a Chance. And Tom Angleberger’s legions of paper-folding followers are already counting the days until the release of the next Origami Yoda novel, Princess Labelmaker to the Rescue! Still another can’t-miss offering is Nikki Grimes’ 2014 Coretta Scott King Honor book, Words with Wings, splendidly narrated by Mutiyat Ade-Salu.

One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them, One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them In ancient times the Rings of Power were crafted by the Elven-smiths, and Sauron, the Dark Lord, forged the One Ring, filling it with his own power so that he could rule all others. But the One Ring was taken from him, and though he sought it throughout Middle-earth, it remained lost to him. After many ages it fell by chance into the hands of the hobbit Bilbo Baggins. From Sauron’s fastness in the Dark Tower of Mordor, his power spread far and wide. Sauron gathered all the Great Rings to him, but always he searched for the One Ring that would complete his dominion. When Bilbo reached his eleventy-first birthday he disappeared, bequeathing to his young cousin Frodo the Ruling Ring and a perilous quest: to journey across Middle-earth, deep into the shadow of the Dark Lord, and destroy the Ring by casting it into the Cracks of Doom. The Lord of the Rings tells of the great quest undertaken by Frodo and the Fellowship of the Ring: Gandalf the Wizard; the hobbits Merry, Pippin, and Sam; Gimli the Dwarf; Legolas the Elf; Boromir of Gondor; and a tall, mysterious stranger called Strider. This new edition includes the fiftieth-anniversary fully corrected text setting and, for the first time, an extensive new index. J.R.R. Tolkien (1892-1973), beloved throughout the world as the creator of The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings, and The Silmarillion, was a professor of Anglo-Saxon at Oxford, a fellow of Pembroke College, and a fellow of Merton College until his retirement in 1959. His chief interest was the linguistic aspects of the early English written tradition, but while he studied classic works of the past, he was creating a set of his own.
