Colin Cone's Birthday by Jan Wallis, creator of the Colin Cone series.
Awareness + Action Plan = Safety! How prepared are you and your students if an adverse situation occurred in your school? Room 23 ...and the Lock-Down Drill focuses on the one event no one ever wants to experience but the one for which everyone must prepare-how to stay safe during an active threat. Ms. Kindheart's class hears a sudden lockdown announcement and are, at first, confused. A visit from Officer Michael helps the class reinforce all the ways they already know on how to be safe, and they are introduced to other vital components to a new safety routine. Room 23 and the Lock-Down Drill gives teachers a way to talk to their students about how to implement this very necessary but potentially difficult safety protocol, and it helps students understand how they can empower themselves and one another to stay safe in adverse conditions. With safety skills recommended by NASRO (National Association of School Resource Officers) and NASP (National Association of School Psychologists), this safety routine can be utilized in any school. This book can be read aloud in a group or used individually. There are also lesson plan guidelines available to help any school or school district create an action plan that is easily understood by all. Please visit www.authorhouse.com for more information. And the fun part for students? They get to find Safety Squirrel hiding in every illustration! read more

Lurking in the woods of the Pacific northwest, there is a hairy humanoid that has yet to be captured. Grainy film and blurry photo...graphs are the only evidence of its existence. Unless … unless … maybe this creature is more involved with our lives than previously speculated, at least in the imagination of a young boy seeking to explain to his mother how his day turned out so bad. In The Yeti Made Me Do It (and Other Cryptozoological Excuses), this boy creatively blames various legendary creatures. He didn’t spill his cereal—the manufacturer put a live jackalope in the box as a prize. He didn’t bite his sister—a chupacabra did. A mapinguari ate his homework. He didn’t splash—there was a kraken in the tub. Okay, perhaps he was stretching the truth, but it wasn’t his fault … the Yeti made him do it! Amusingly illustrated by Dustin Poms, this book will delight both kids and cryptozoology fans. Unlike the sasquatch, fun can easily be found! read more

Kadavera, the witch, was dead.

Her death has precipitated the regeneration of not just one but both of her sister witches - and they are both far worse than she ever was. Conscripting the Cornish goblins, the witches capture the gnomes from the Gnome Reserve to use as guinea pigs in their experiments to be able to exist in daylight.

A chance finding of a small amulet leads Hugo and his friends into realms of King Arthur and to the magic power of his sword, Excalibur.

Can Hugo and Bird, rescue the gnomes and prevent the witches from achieving their lethal goal and how can an inquisitive journalist make everything far worse?
