Unstinky • Andy Rash • 9/25/18

Bud is a happy stinkbug, except when it comes to stinking contests. He always seems to lose to champions like P. U. Bottoms, Lord Stinkington, and The Fumigator. Every time they make smells like OUTHOUSE, GYM SOCK, and ARMPIT, poor Bud ends up smelling like FLOWERS, or FRESH-BAKED BREAD, or CANDY CANE. Stinking just isn't Bud's THING. But what IS his thing?

With an ending as fresh as a daisy, and funnier than any funny smell, Andy Rash puts a hilarious spin on a tale of following your nose to happiness.

The Extremely Inconvenient Adventures of Bronte Mettlestone • Jaclyn Moriarty • 10/9/18

Bronte Mettlestone is ten years old when her parents are killed by pirates. This does not bother her particularly: her parents ran away to have adventures when she was a baby. She has been raised by her Aunt Isabelle, with assistance from the Butler, and has spent a pleasant childhood of afternoon teas and riding lessons. Now, however, her parents have left detailed instructions for Bronte in their will. (Instructions that, annoyingly, have been reinforced with faery cross-stitch, which means that if she doesn't complete them, terrible things could happen!) She travels the kingdoms, perfectly alone, delivering gifts to ten other aunts: a farmer aunt who owns an orange orchard, a veterinarian aunt who specializes in dragon care, a pair of aunts who captain a cruise ship, and a former rock star aunt who is now the reigning monarch of a small kingdom. But as she travels from aunt to aunt, Bronte suspects there might be more to this journey than the simple delivery of treasure

The Grand Escape • Neal Bascomb • 9/25/18

At the height of World War I, as battles raged in the trenches and in the air,  another struggle for survival was being waged in the most notorious POW camp in all of Germany: Holzminden. A land-locked Alcatraz of sorts, it was home to the most troublesome Allied prisoners—and the most talented at escape. The Grand Escape tells the remarkable tale of a band of pilots who pulled off an ingenious plan and made it out of enemy territory in the biggest breakout of WWI, inspiring their countrymen in the darkest hours of the war.


The Agony House • Cherie Priest • Tara O'Connor • 9/25/18

A haunted house, a killer ghost, and a long-lost comic come to life in another spectacular package of novel and comics from Cherie Priest. Denise Farber has just moved back to New Orleans with her mom and stepdad, who have wagered the last of their family’s money on fixing up an old, rundown house.  When floors collapse, deadly objects rain down, and creepy voices sound, it’s clear to Denise that something sinister lurks hidden. Answers may lie in an old comic book she finds concealed in the abandoned attic: the lost final project of a famous artist who disappeared in the 1950s. Denise isn’t budging from her new home, so she must unravel the mystery - on the pages and off them - if she and her family are to survive...
