We love book fair, and it is coming soon...the week after Spring Break. I'll be highlighting some titles this week that you'll be seeing there.
Hooper and Cooper are ready, but where's Zoomer?
Zoomer is waaaaay too busy for school today. Although his dad begs him to get ready, how can Zoomer make time for school with such a full schedule? He has to blow the world's biggest bubble, build a brontosaurus out of sand, launch a rocket ship—and that's just the beginning!
Ned Young paints Zoomer's world with fun, detailed illustrations that showcase the silly side of everyday life. Kids and their parents will laugh out loud at the surprise ending that proves Zoomer knows best after all.
Meet Homer Pudding, an ordinary farm boy who's got big dreams-to follow in the footsteps of his famous treasure-hunting uncle. But when Uncle Drake mysteriously disappears, Homer inherits two things: a lazy, droopy dog with no sense of smell, and a mystery.
Why would his uncle call this clumsy dog his "most treasured possession?" And why did he put a gold coin on the dog's collar?
And who will continue Uncle Drake's quest-to find the most coveted pirate treasure in the world?
Join Homer, his sister Gwendolyn, and Dog on an adventure that will test their wits and courage as they leave their peaceful farm and head into a world where ruthless treasure hunters hide around every corner. Where they discover that Dog has a hidden talent and that treasure might be closer than they ever imagined.
