‘PRINCESS BABY, NIGHT-NIGHT’
BY KAREN KATZ
Princess Baby is back in this sturdy board book featuring a sparkly cover — perfect for babies, toddlers and preschoolers.
It’s bedtime, but Princess Baby isn’t sleepy. “Time for bed,” her parents call. “But I need one more minute, please,” Princess Baby replies, again and again and again.
After all, there is so much a princess baby needs to do. Pajamas need to be put on, toys need to put away, the perfect book needs to be chosen, and her beloved subjects need to brush their teeth!
It’s a very busy time in Princess Baby’s room.
Young readers will want to climb into their own beds when our pint-sized heroine finally pulls up the covers and goes “night-night.”
“Princess Baby, Night-Night” is perfect for girls who aren’t old enough to enjoy Fancy Nancy and is the ideal gift for little girls from parents and grandparents.

BY DAVID A. KELLY
Sports fans unite for an all-American combination of baseball and mysteries in “Ballpark Mysteries: The Missing Marlin.” It’s the eighth inning and “The Missing Marlin” is book #8 in the early chapter book mystery series, where each book is set in a different American ballpark.
Mike and Kate are in Miami visiting Kate’s Uncle Oliver — and the Miami Marlins ballpark of course! Uncle Oliver is in charge of keeping the new fish tanks at the ballpark fully stocked, but strange things keep happening.
Kate swears she saw an endangered turtle in one of the tanks. Then some of Uncle Oliver’s rare fish go missing, including his favorite, Marlin.
Something fishy is going on in Miami!
“The Missing Marlin” includes several pages of “Dugout Notes,” fun facts about Miami’s recently built ballpark with its homerun statue, fish tanks, and swimming pool.
Cross Ron Roy’s A to Z Mystery series with Matt Christopher’s sports books and you get the Ballpark Mysteries: fun, puzzling whodunits aimed at the younger brothers and sisters of John Feinstein fans.
