If You Were the Moon

If You Were the Moon
by Laura Purdie Salas (Author) and Jaime Kim (Illustrator)

Booktalk: What would you do if you were the moon? Do you think you would rest quietly in the night sky? Oh, no. The moon does so much more than you might imagine! It spins like a twilight ballerina, plays tug-of-war with the ocean, and lights a pathway for baby sea turtles. Discover the many other roles the moon plays . . .

Snippet:

Hover near your mother.

Scientists believe the moon formed 4.5 billion years ago when a meteorite the size of Mars collided with the newly formed Earth. Rock from Earth and the meteorite splashed into space, and the moon was born.

See the book trailer.

A Case in Any Case

A Case in Any Case (Detective Gordon)
by Ulf Nilsson (Author) and Gitte Spee (Illustrator)

Booktalk: Gordon is on vacation, and Buffy is the sole detective at the small police station in the forest. It is not easy for a police officer to be alone. Especially when there are strange noises outside the station at night.

Buffy decides to seek out Gordon in his little cottage by the lake to ask for help. After all, two police think twice as well as one. Two police are twice as brave!

Snippet:
In the morning, the sun was shining again and the air was still. It was a wonderful day for two police friends to wander through the forest. Both were wearing their fine gold police hats. They were going to the police station for breakfast.

On the way, Buffy couldn’t help thinking about the mysterious scrabbler. Or scrabblers, because there could be more than one.
