EDMOND — ‘A TO Z MYSTERIES: THE CASTLE CRIME’

BY RON ROY

Dink, Josh and Ruth Rose are going to London! When they arrive in the city, the kids see Big Ben, ride the London Eye, and tour Madame Tussauds wax museum.

Then big news hits — someone has stolen Queen Elizabeth’s jewels right outside Windsor Castle! The kids head to the castle to check for clues.

But can three kids from Green Lawn possibly find evidence that Scotland Yard has missed?

“A to Z Mysteries: The Castle Crime” is an accessible book for young readers, packed with action and mystery to keep them engaged. Each book in this series features a famous museum, building or monument from the area. The book is not only entertaining but also educational and features a 26-letter secret hidden in the illustrations.

Ages 6-9.



‘POEM-MOBILES: CRAZY CAR POEMS’

BY J. PATRICK LEWIS & DOUGLAS FLORIAN

Young readers will be taken on a wild drive filled with fresh, quirky poems by two picture-book poetry veterans in “Poem-Mobiles.” U.S. Children’s Poet Laureate J. Patrick Lewis and an award-winning children’s poet Douglas Florian join their prolific forces in this picture book of poems about cars.

But they’re not just any cars: there’s the “Sloppy-Floppy-Nonstop-Jalopy” (“So unique there is no copy”), the Bathtub Limousine (“With hot water heating/ And porcelain seating”); and the “High Heel Car.”

Each of the 21 quirky, inventive poems will speak directly to the imaginations of children, as will Jeremy Holmes’s high-concept, detail-filled illustrations.

Ages 4-8.
