This School Library Journal Best Book of the Year celebrates everything butterfly, from migration to metamorphosis! Kids will love reading about Velma's own transformation from a timid first grader into a confident scientist. It's hard to be Velma entering first grade. That's because everyone has marvelous memories of her two older sisters, who were practically perfect first graders, and no one even notices Velma. But all that changes on a class trip to the butterfly conservatory, a place neither of her sisters has been. When a monarch roosts on Velma's finger and won't budge for days—no one will ever forget it . . . or her! Here's the perfect addition to any science curriculum. From the Hardcover edition.

KATHLEEN KRULL’S LIVELY text traces the life of L. Frank Baum from his dreamy privileged childhood in mid-19th-century upstate New York through the many detours on his road to Oz. A failure as an actor, a breeder of prize chickens, a merchant in a wild west town, among other occupations, he finally made a success doing exactly what he had always loved to do: tell stories for children. Along the way, we see the antecedents of the Scarecrow, the Tin Man, green glasses, and other characters and attributes of the famous fantasy land. This is the first biography of L. Frank Baum that children can enjoy. With the same verve she brought to her biography of Dr. Seuss, Kathleen Krull’s wry prose couples with Kevin Hawke’s exuberant paintings and drawings to create a book not to be missed by Oz fans of all ages.

Die von verzauberten Nebelschwaden umgebene Insel Mistmantle war lange Zeit ein sicherer, glücklicher Ort für seine Bewohner: Igel, Maulwürfe, Otter und rote Eichhörnchen. Das ändert sich, als ein skrupelloses Paar den alten König und seine Frau systematisch ausbooten, ja zugrunde richten, um an ihre Stelle zu treten. Dabei setzen sie schreckliche Dinge in Gang, z.B. "die Merz", das Töten schwächlicher Jungtiere. Doch ein paar Tiere durchschauen das perfide Treiben und organisieren Widerstand. Eine besondere Rolle kommt einer Prophezeiung gemäß dem jungen Eichhörnchen Urchin (das heißt so viel wie kleiner frecher Knirps) zu, das als Baby in einer Sternschnuppennacht am Strand gefunden wurde. Es wird, das ist gewiss, noch von sich reden machen. Ein sich dramatisch steigerndes, gut erzähltes Abenteuer, bei dem Gut und Böse deutlich positioniert sind. Empfohlen.. Auf der Insel Mistmantle, auf der die Tiere bisher in Frieden leben konnten, geschehen plötzlich schreckliche Dinge. Doch ein paar Unerschrockene wehren sich und das junge Eichhörnchen Urchin spielt dabei eine ganz besondere Rolle. Ab 11.
