DIARY OF AWESOME FRIENDLY KID HC ROWLEY JEFFERSONS JOURNAL

(W/A) Jeff Kinney

Greg Heffley has been chronicling his middle school years in thirteen Diary of a Wimpy Kid journals… and counting. Now it’s time for readers to hear from Greg’s trusty best friend, Rowley Jefferson, in a journal of his own. In Diary of an Awesome, Friendly Kid, Rowley agrees to take on the role of biographer, recording his pal’s life story because one day “Greg is going to be rich and famous and he says everyone will want to know his whole life story so they can make movies about him and stuff.” But it turns out Rowley is a poor choice for the job, and his “biography” of Greg says more about himself than it does about his best friend. Diary of an Awesome, Friendly Kid offers readers a new way to look at the Wimpy world, one fans won’t want to miss!

MEMOIRS OF BOOK THIEF GN

(W) Alessando Tota (A) Pierre Van Hove

Paris, the 1950s. Daniel Brodin – bibliophile, book thief, self-proclaimed poet – enters the heated atmosphere of the Cafe Serbier, home of the Parisian literati. Daniel impulsively puts himself forward for a poetry recitation. Under pressure, he recites not one of his own surrealist poems but an obscure piece of Italian verse he’s certain no one will know. It’s plagiarism, but it’s a triumph. Daniel’s recital marks his entrance into the Parisian avant-garde: a band of cultured rogues and pseudo-revolutionaries for whom life is a playground for art and planning a robbery has as much value as writing a book. In this milieu, the wine is good and the girls are beautiful. But can success last if it is founded on plagiarism and theft?

PHOEBE & HER UNICORN GN VOL 09 UNICORN BOWLING

(W) Dana Simpson (A/CA) Dana Simpson

A unicorn in bowling shoes is quite a STRIKE-ing sight. But for nine-year-old Phoebe Howell, it’s just another fun outing with her best friend, the illustrious unicorn Marigold Heavenly Nostrils. This unique and magical friendship is at the heart of the ninth Phoebe and Her Unicorn collection, which includes adventures such as writing original songs, publishing rival news websites, and making a summer visit to the exclusive Camp Shimmerhorn. Life with a unicorn BFF is not without its challenges, however, and whether it’s homework, friction with classmates, or talent show jitters, Unicorn Bowling is full of amusing, heartwarming reminders that when the going gets tough, the tough get sparkling!
