Apples Galore and MorePosted: September 6, 2013
We can only purchase a small selection of new releases in any category to include alongside our used stock, so I spend quite a bit of time picking just the right ones to offer you.
Apples Galore is the newest Fancy Nancy book, the perfect title for the Fall harvest time. (And we are really in the spirit of harvest because our house has been full of bushels and bushels of apples this abundant year.) Jane O’Connor’s Fancy Nancy books have been getting great feedback from our customers!
This new series from Brandon Mull looks really fun! Brandon Mull is the author of the Fablehaven and Beyonders series and this one looks full of fantasy and bravery. I have a taste for animal magic and youth fantasy, so I’m hoping I’ll get a chance to read Wild Born myself. Official release date September 10.
Here’s a quote from Booklist about the third book in this adventurous series: “…this engaging sequel opens aboard the Heron as Hal, his fellow Skandians (think Vikings), and their friend Lydia sail up a river in search of Zavac, the ruthless pirate who has stolen a precious relic from their village. Accused of murder and imprisoned along the way, they use their weapons, their wits, and their sailing skills in the headlong pursuit of their goal. Welcome humor lessens the dramatic tension at times, while the shipmates’ individuality and comradeship make their adventures more meaningful.”
This series and its companion series The Ranger’s Apprentice have both been popular at Robie Books, and we currently have copies of all three of the titles in The Brotherband Chronicles including this new release.
And here are four more notable new arrivals. While not new releases, these are some of the current children’s titles just restocked that are favorites here in Berea:
