Angel and Bavar
Written by Amy Wilson
chapter book
Recommend Ages: 8-12

Taking inspiration from “Beauty and the Beast,” Amy Wilson’s second middle grade novel is a stunning modern fairy tale of magic, friendship, and finding the courage to fight for what matters most. After the death of her parents, Angel has a lot to get used to: a new home, a new family, a new school. The last thing she’s interested in is making new friends. Until she meets Bavar, a strange boy who slips through the shadows, a boy who might understand her nightmares. But Bavar doesn’t want to let anyone in. Everyone—and everything—in his enchanted house is already urging him to step up and protect the world from a magical rift and the fearsome monsters traveling through it, a responsibility he wishes he could ignore. Then Bavar discovers that the monsters are the same ones that killed Angel’s parents. Determined to stop the creatures for good, he reluctantly accepts Angel’s help. Together, Angel and Bavar must find the courage to stand up for each other and themselves to repair the rift between worlds…before it’s too late.

  • Beauty and the Dreaded Sea Beast - When Beauty’s father is swept overboard from their ship, The Rose, just as they are being attacked by a sorcerer-pirate and his crew of living skeletons, Beauty jumps in to save him, and is immediately scooped up by a surprisingly friendly Kraken; she offers to remain with him if he finds and saves her father, but as she explores the pirate’s island she finds a treasure and a book of spells–which may hold the key to turning the Kraken back into a prince (or at least a human).
