Whiskerella
Written & illustrated by Ursula Vernon
chapter book
Recommend Ages: 8-12

Princess Harriet Hamsterbone is not the kind of princess who enjoys fancy dresses or extravagant parties. Cliff-diving, fractions, and whacking people with swords are more her thing. So when she’s forced to attend a boring ball in honor of a visiting ambassador, Harriet is less than thrilled–until a bewitchingly beautiful stranger arrives. Who is she? And where did she come from? The mystery leads to a not-so-wicked stepsister, an incontinent lizard, and a fairy’s spell that’s really more of a curse. Luckily, Harriet knows a thing or two about curses…

Princess Cora and the Crocodile
Written by Laura Amy Schlitz & illustrated by Brian Floca
chapter book
Recommend Ages: 4-8

Princess Cora is sick of boring lessons. She’s sick of running in circles around the dungeon gym. She’s sick, sick, sick of taking three baths a day. And her parents won’t let her have a dog. But when she writes to her fairy godmother for help, she doesn’t expect that help to come in the form of a crocodile—a crocodile who does not behave properly. With perfectly paced dry comedy, children’s book luminaries Laura Amy Schlitz and Brian Floca send Princess Cora on a delightful outdoor adventure — climbing trees! getting dirty! having fun! — while her alter ego wreaks utter havoc inside the castle, obliging one pair of royal helicopter parents to reconsider their ways.

Twinkle Thinks Pink!
Written by Katharine Holabird & illustrated by Sarah Warburton
picture book
Recommend Ages: 3-7

From the acclaimed author of the beloved Angelina Ballerina series comes the second delightful picture book about a feisty fairy who’s obsessed with the color pink!

When Twinkle and her friends get invited to Fairy Godmother’s garden party, they can’t wait to wear their sparkly outfits and eat lots of fairy cake! They fly through Sparkle Tree Forest to take a peek at the rainbow roses in the palace. But as they admire the beautiful garden, Twinkle notices that her favorite color is missing! So, she closes her eyes, waves her wand, and casts a little spell to turn everything pink!

With her magical pink spells going sideways and frustration running high, can Twinkle set everything right before the garden party is ruined?
