‘A PRINCESS LIKE ME’
‘RUMBLE! ROAR! DINOSAURS!’
BY MATTHEW REINHART
Following the publication of “Rescue: Pop-Up Emergency Vehicles” and “Puppies, Kittens, and Other Pop-Up Pets.” Matthew Reinhart turns his pop-up wizardry on two new subjects, dinosaurs and princesses. This young and very affordable pop-up series is perfect for these economic times.
Both “A Princess Like Me” and “Rumble! Roar! Dinosaurs!” feature bright cut-paper collage artwork, just right for the young set.
“A Princess Like Me” takes a young princess through her day — from waking up in her big pillowy bed to getting ready for a tea party with her other princess friends.
“Rumble! Roar! Dinosaurs!” includes pop-ups of a stegosaurus, an apatosaurus and her baby, a deinonychus, pteranodon, a triceratops and the grand finale of a T. Rex and an ankylosaurus in a fight to the finish.
All of the action is brought to life with pop-ups, pull-tabs, lift-the-flaps and more.
‘THE FIRE CHRONICLE: BOOK TWO IN THE BOOKS OF BEGINNING TRILOGY’
BY JOHN STEPHENS
It’s been six months since Kate, Michael and Emma confronted the Dire Magnus in the conclusion to “The Emerald Atlas,” but the trail to their long-missing parents remains cold.
Then Michael and Emma find a man who saw them 10 years ago — three days after they disappeared. He knows about a map of a distant land, a place shrouded in mystery that may lead them to their parents.
Meanwhile, Kate’s connection to the Book of Time is growing stronger and stronger, until a dangerous trick gets her stuck in the past, searching for a friend to help her.
Only a perilous quest and a daring risk will help the children to harness the power of the Books of Beginning. But will it be enough to save them?
Through Kate, Michael and Emma’s journey and a new slew of characters including elves and a charming gang of ragtag orphans as well as returning favorites like the wise wizard Pym and brave warrior Gabriel introduced in book one, John Stephens illuminates the magic of discovery and adventure, in this series that has the lure of such beloved classics as The Chronicles of Narnia and “A Wrinkle in Time.”
