      Description
      In this standalone French-inspired fantasy, two young women work together in secret to stay alive and end a war caused by magic and greed before it kills thousands for the sake of the wealthy few

      Comtesse Emilie Marchand is more at home holding scalpels than knitting needles and is desperate to escape her noble roots and serve her country as a physician. But society dictates a lady cannot perform such gruesome work.
      Annette Boucher, first-born daughter and least-loved child, wants more for her life, desperate to be trained so her magic can reach its full potential. So when a strange noble girl offers Annette the chance of a lifetime, she accepts.
      Emilie and Annette swap lives—Annette attends finishing school to become a lady and trained in the ways of divination, while Emilie enrolls to be a surgeon, using her natural magical talent to save lives.
      But when their nation is the aggressor in a frivolous war, Emilie and Annette must work together to help the rebellion end a war that is based on lies.

      Polar Bear, Polar Bear, What Do You Hear?: "Teachers will smile with delight when they see this wonderful book, and students are sure to utter the familiar request, 'Have you got another one like this one?" - School Library Journal, starred review "Carle's characteristically inventive, jewel-toned artwork forms a seamless succession of images that fairly leap off the pages, and educator Martin, ever tuned in to what children like best, has assembled a thoroughly rowdy menagerie . . . . A visually and aurally splashy work, this is a splendid successor to Brown Bear, one that no fan of that popular bruin will want to be without." - Publishers Weekly

      Description

      "Narrator Tristan Morris captures the suspense in this Florida mystery featuring three young shark-taggers, a Southern-accented detective, and a menacing poacher... Morris maintains an ominous sense of danger throughout the audiobook." --AudioFile Magazine

      From Randy Wayne White, theNew York Times bestselling author of the Doc Ford series for adults, comesFins, a high-stakes, masterfully plotted story of courage, friendship…and sharks!


      The world’s shark population is in trouble for a sad, simple reason: shark fin soup. And although it’s illegal, poachers have been targeting Florida’s biannual migration of blacktip sharks.

      Marine biologist Doc Ford needs some assistance protecting the sharks and enlists the help of three kids—Luke, Maribel and Sabina. Luke is brand-new to Florida from the Midwest; sisters Maribel and Sabina have only recently arrived from Cuba—and all three feel like fish out of water. It’s going to take some convincing for them to work as a team and to recognize in themselves the courage, wisdom and tenacity that Doc sees in them.

      Together they form Sharks, Inc. and are given an important assignment: to set out each day on their small fishing boat in hopes of tagging sharks for Doc’s research—and to stay away—far away—from any possible poachers in the area.

      The trio certainly isn’t looking for trouble, but when they come face to face with danger, survival requires them to rely on each of their own unique gifts, and especially on one another.

      A Macmillan Audio production from Roaring Brook Press
