‘PEANUT BUTTER AND JELLYFISH’
BY JARRETT J. KROSOCZKA
Peanut Butter and Jellyfish are the best of friends. The swim up. They swim down. They swim all around.
Except near Crabby, who never has anything nice to say to them. “You guys swim like humans!” is the least of his insults.
Then one day, Crabby is caught up in a lobster trap and needs their help! Should they help him?
It’s Peanut Butter and Jellyfish to the rescue! Crabby might be afraid of heights…but will he be brave enough to apologize?
“Peanut Butter and Jellyfish” is a perfect story for preschoolers and kindergarteners, with its important themes of friendship, kindness, bullying, and acceptance.
‘BAD LUCK GIRL: AMERICAN FAIRY TRILOGY BOOK THREE’
BY SARAH ZETTEL
After rescuing her parents from the Seelie king at Hearst Castle, Callie is caught up in the war between the fairies of the Midnight Throne and the Sunlit Kingdoms.
By accident, she discovers that fairies aren’t the only magical creatures in the world. There’s also Halfers, misfits that are half fairy and half other — half paper, half street girder, half electric spark.
As the war heats up, Callie’s world falls apart. And even though she’s the child of prophecy, she doubts she can save the Halfers, her people, her family, and Jack, let alone herself.
Bad Luck Girl, they call Callie, and she’s starting to believe them.
