ABOUT THE BOOKS:
THE FABLED STABLES #1: WILLA OF THE WISP by Jonathan Auxier
Welcome to the Fabled Stables, a magical building filled with one-of-a-kind creatures. Creatures including the Gargantula, the Yawning Abyss, the Hippopotamouse . . . and Auggie. Auggie is the only human boy at the Stables, and he takes care of all the other animals. The Fabled Stables have a mind of their own, and every so often, the building SHAKES and SHUDDERS, TWITCHES and SPUTTERS—it’s making room for a new arrival! It’s Auggie’s job to venture out and rescue a new creature from mortal danger. But will he be able to complete his mission before it’s too late? With some help from Fen (a literal stick-in-the-mud) and his animal companions, Auggie saves the day and makes a new friend in the process.
Jonathan Auxier is the New York Times–bestselling and critically acclaimed author of Peter Nimble and His Fantastic Eyes, The Night Gardener, Sophie Quire and the Last Storyguard, and Sweep. He lives with his family in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. You can find him online at thescop.com.

EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW WHEN YOU ARE 8 by Kirsten Miller
Dominate age eight with a trove of earth-shattering secrets, jokes, and tips they won’t teach you in school!
What’s the best gift for a kid who’s turned eight? Everything they need to know! Eight is a banner year in every kid’s life. It’s when they’re finally granted “big kid” status. That means more freedom and responsibility. It also means there’s a ton of stuff to learn, and some of it’s pretty important. Inside this hilarious handbook is the information kids need to make eight one of the best years of their lives—from the fun (How to Win Halloween), to the serious (How to Get Germs Before They Get You) and the downright disgusting (How to Make Boogers You Can Eat).
Kirsten Miller is a renowned author of middle-grade and YA fiction. She lives in Brooklyn with her precocious 10-year-old, who helped write this book. Find out more at kirstenmillerbooks.com.

FOX & RABBIT MAKE BELIEVE (BOOK #2) by Beth Ferry
Book #2 in the Fox & Rabbit series celebrates the magic of making believe and making new friends! Fox and Rabbit are the very best of friends. They do everything together. Good things like getting ice cream and not-so-good things like getting bad haircuts. But when they meet a new friend, Owl, Fox isn’t so sure if there’s enough friendship to go around. Soon, Fox learns that it’s easy to be friends with Rabbit and Owl. They have lots of fun exploring the depths of Owl’s big imagination. Together, Fox and Rabbit and Owl sail the high seas, get swallowed by a whale, defeat evil woodchucks, and more—all from the comfort of the playground. Featuring the same funny text and fresh art as Book #1, the second book in the Fox & Rabbit series will delight old fans and seamlessly welcome new ones!
