      Description

      “After a while, with the parrot's help, the Doctor got to learn the language of the animals so well that he could talk to them himself and understand everything they said.”

      John Dolittle is a highly respected doctor in the village of Puddleby-on-the-Marsh, yet he loves animals so much that his house is soon full of them. With all his patients scared away, and the expense of feeding his menagerie mounting, a friend suggests that the Doctor become a vet instead.

      With the help of Polynesia the parrot, Doctor Dolittle swiftly learns the language of the animals so that he can talk to all of his new patients. However, when a message comes from Africa, telling of a terrible sickness among the monkeys there, the Doctor and his animal friends depart on a thrilling and dangerous adventure that they are never likely to forget.

      Description
      An unforgettable alternative history fairy-tale series from the author of The Bone Witch trilogy about found family, modern day magic, and finding the place you belong

      Many years ago, the magical kingdom of Avalon was left desolate and encased in ice when the evil Snow Queen waged war on the powerful country. Its former citizens are now refugees in a world mostly devoid of magic. Which is why the crown prince and his protectors are stuck in. . . Arizona.

      Prince Alexei, the sole survivor of the Avalon royal family, is in hiding in a town so lame, magic doesn't even work there. Few know his secret identity, but his friend Tala is one of them. Tala doesn't mind-she has secrets of her own. Namely, that she's a spell breaker, someone who negates magic.

      Then hope for their abandoned homeland reignites when a famous creature of legend, and Avalon's most powerful weapon, the Firebird, appears for the first time in decades. Alex and Tala unite with a ragtag group of new friends to journey back to Avalon for a showdown that will change the world as they know it.

      Bio

      Lewis Carroll's real name was Charles Lutwidge Dodgson. He was born in 1832 in Daresbury, England. While teaching mathematics at Oxford University, he made up stories for his friend's three daughters. The story he told the little girl named Alice and her sisters became Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. He had it published into a book in 1865.

      Olugbemisola Rhuday-Perkovich made up stories for her little sister when she was young, including one "true story" that she'd starred on Sesame Street, but had turned herself invisible to viewers. Today, she writes fiction and nonfiction,including the NAACP Image Award nominee Two Naomis, with Audrey Vernick, and its sequel, Nerdy Book Club winner Naomis Too. She's the author of 8th Grade Superzero, a Notable Book for a Global Society, Someday is Now: Clara Luper and the 1958 Oklahoma City Sit-ins, a Notable Social Studies Trade Book, Above and Beyond: NASA's Journey to Tomorrow, and the editor of The Hero Next Door, a middle grade anthology from We Need Diverse Books.

While living in a cottage in Vermont, he wrote The Jungle Book for his baby daughter. He returned to England and, in 1907, was the first English writer to be awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature. He died in 1936.

    • Bio
      Mary Wollstoncraft Shelley was born in 1797 in London, England. She attended school, unlike most girls at that time. When she was seventeen, she married the poet Percy Bysshe Shelley and started writing her first novel, Frankenstein. It was inspired by a nightmare. She finished it when she was twenty-one and published the book anonymously. A few years later, it was published under her name. She wrote several other novels and short stories before she died in 1851. Anna Meriano is the author of the Love Sugar Magic series, which has received starred reviews from Kirkus, School Library Journal, and Shelf Awareness. A Houston native, she graduated from Rice University with a degree in English and earned her MFA in writing for children from the New School. Anna works as a tutor and part time teacher with Writers in the Schools, a Houston nonprofit that brings creative writing instruction into public schools. In her free time, she likes to knit, study American Sign Language, and play full-contact quidditch.
