THE COPPER GAUNTLET by Cassandra Clare & Holly Black / Snippet & U.S. Book Signing Info.



Who's ready for The Copper Gauntlet, book two in the Magisterium series by Cassandra Clare & Holly Black to be out? We are! While we have to wait until next week for the book to be out here in the US, it's out today in the UK! Holly Black and & Cassandra were on Tumblr today and shared a snippet from Chapter 3! 



In SIX DAYS, Magisterium 2: The Copper Gauntlet will be out in the US. And apparently TODAY is the day it is out in the UK
If you haven’t already seen it, here’s the first chapter.
And here’s a snippet of a scene from Chapter 3 that I particularly enjoyed:
“Jasper!” Call yelled, waving his hand around frantically. “Hey, Jasper!”
Jasper looked over at him and his eyes widened. He headed toward Call. He was carrying a glass of fruit punch in which chunks of real fruit floated. Call had never been so relieved to see anyone. He started reconsidering all the bad things he’d ever thought about Jasper. Jasper was a hero.
“Mr. DeWinter,” said the waiter. “Do you know this boy?”
Jasper took a sip of punch, his brown eyes traveling up and down Call, from his tangled hair to his dirty sneakers. 
“Never seen him before in my life,” he said.
Call’s positive feelings about Jasper evaporated in a whoosh. “Jasper, you liar —”
If you're in the San Francisco Bay area next month, stop by Keplers to see both Cassie and Holly!

The Most Anticipated Children’s and YA Books of Fall 2015 via Publishers Weekly

Happy Marvelous Middle Grade Monday! School started today, which means fall is right around the corner. If you're looking for some Fall 2015 releases to add to your must read list, check out this list of The Most Anticipated Children’s and YA Books of Fall 2015 from Publishers Weekly. Below I've shared their list of Children's and Middle Grade books. You can check out their entire list here

Children's Books



The Day the Crayons Came Home by Drew Daywalt, illus. by Oliver Jeffers (Philomel, Aug.) - Daywalt and Jeffers’s The Day the Crayons Quit has been a stalwart on bestseller lists since it was published in 2013. This very funny follow-up sees the crayons writing postcards to their young owner after being left out of town on vacation, lost within the sofa, or otherwise abused.

The Full Moon at the Napping House by Audrey Wood and Don Wood (HMH, Sept.) - More than 30 years after the publication of bedtime favorite The Napping House, this husband-and-wife team takes readers back to a dwelling, where a certain granny, boy, dog, and cat are having trouble falling asleep under the light of an enormous moon.

Happy! by Pharrell Williams (Putnam, Oct.) - “Clap along if you feel like that’s what you wanna do.” Hmm, could a picture book adaptation of Williams’s chart-topping pop song essentially turn out to be a 21st-century version of “If You’re Happy and You Know It?” Readers can find out come October.

Lenny & Lucy by Philip C. Stead and Erin E. Stead (Roaring Brook/Porter, Oct.) - The Steads made a name for themselves with the Caldecott Medal–winning A Sick Day for Amos McGee and have been accumulating accolades ever since. Their latest tells of a boy who creates a pair of protector-companions as he adjusts to his new home.

Leo: A Ghost Story by Mac Barnett, illus. by Christian Robinson (Chronicle, Aug.) - Who says ghosts don’t have feelings? Not Barnett and Robinson, whose “ghost story” is alternately funny, sad, and sweet as a lonesome spirit named Leo tries to make a connection that doesn’t leave the other party fleeing in terror.

MIDDLE GRADE



Crenshaw by Katherine Applegate (Feiwel and Friends, Sept.) - Applegate is back with her first middle-grade novel since The One and Only Ivan, which won the 2013 Newbery Medal. In this equally sensitive story, fifth-grader Jackson worries that the reappearance of his childhood imaginary friend portends the return of problems for his family, too.

Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Old School by Jeff Kinney (Abrams/Amulet, Nov.) - With more than 150 million copies in print, the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series is something of a global juggernaut, and this 10th entry in the series will be published simultaneously in 90 countries on November 3.

Goodbye Stranger by Rebecca Stead (Random/Lamb, Aug.) - Stead returns to the Manhattan environs of her Newbery Medal–winning When You Reach Me as she explores the entwined and sometimes precarious friendships among a group of seventh-graders, shifting smoothly and perceptively between multiple points of view.

The Sword of Summer by Rick Riordan (Disney-Hyperion, Oct.) - Having delved into Greek and Egyptian mythology in his Percy Jackson, Heroes of Olympus, and Kane Chronicles series, Riordan moves on to Norse legends in this first book in the Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard series. Riordan’s fans should be ecstatic; trolls and frost giants, less so.

The Marvels by Brian Selznick (Scholastic Press, Sept.) - A shipwreck, the world of London theater, a home meticulously maintained as it would have existed in the 18th-century, and the magic of storytelling combine in Selznick’s latest, a full 500 pages of which consist solely of his intricately detailed pencil drawings.

There are projects that go from beginner to more advanced. When it comes to DIY books, this one is full of ideas. There's definitely something for everyone in here. I liked that this wasn't a small, hastily thrown together book. If you've read your share of DIY books, you know the ones I'm talking about.

THE PAGES BETWEEN US by Lindsey Leavitt & Robin Mellom / Cover Reveal / Guest Post / Enter To WIN!

Hello and welcome today's exciting cover reveal for Lindsey Leavitt and Robin Mellom's THE PAGES BETWEEN US! I'm so thrilled to not only reveal the cover for their upcoming release, both Robin and Lindsey have stopped by the blog today! That's not all! You can also enter to win an arc of The Pages Between Us! 

CHECK OUT THIS COVER!



I love this cover! If I had a book with a cover like this back (like way back) when I was tween, I'd have totally picked it up. Thankfully I've got a daughter whom I can read this book with, and I'm looking forward to that. 

THE PAGES BETWEEN US by Lindsey Leavitt & Robin Mellom

Piper and Olivia have been best friends since… well, forever. They aren’t about to let a little thing like middle school get in their way—but their new schedules aren't giving them enough together-time. How are two girls supposed to fill each other in on all the happenings of sixth grade if they never actually see each other?

Luckily, an idea sparks when Piper finds a cute sparkly notebook. It’s genius—the girls disguise their discovery as a "French Class" notebook, passing secret notes all day long. Now the two BFFs can stick together all the time. And document their adventures--you know, for anthropology sake. 

But when Piper finds she’s suddenly seeking guests for her birthday party while Olivia musters the courage to tackle after school clubs, the two realize that they may need to branch out more than they originally thought. Their notebook, once a life raft, begins to feel like a big responsibility. Can they grow up, without growing apart?

Told in letters, posters, blog posts, homework assignments, and more, The Pages Between Us is a totally fun, totally earnest snapshot of real-life friendship—and what it truly means to be there for someone during the ups, downs, and everything in between.

A Letter Between Robin and Lindsey

Lindsey,
This is a big day. BIG. Remember that phone call we had a couple of years ago where I said ‘hey, wouldn’t it be cool to write a middle school novel told in letters between friends and it’s written by ACTUAL friends?’ You said yes…let’s do it and you didn’t even cough or laugh or hesitate or hiccup. Just…YES. It was my most favorite YES ever.  I was on my phone sitting in my car at Whole Foods. I was so excited I didn’t even go inside the store to buy my kale. (I went across the street and got a celebratory frappuccino.) Also, not sure if this is important, but most of our phone conversations ever since have been in the Whole Foods parking lot.
-Robin

Robin,
I know, right? It’s like we’re having a baby and everyone is seeing her face for the first time. But we can’t introduce her to the world until next February, so actually this is like showing an ultrasound, except an ultrasound that is in color with no mysterious blobs that might be an ear or a kneecap. I’m going to sit over here and figure out how to speed up time. I’ll try to spoonfeed my clock some sugar. Or maybe Twinkies? Not sure how this time/space continuum thing actually works. And while you have conversations with me in the Whole Foods parking lot, I can usually be found on my cell phone while at a fast food drive-thru. Um…an organic, free-range drive-thru.
Ok, back to our book baby. Did I mess up that metaphor?

I am so in love with this cover. The colors. The girls’ sweet faces as they look at each other. And I especially love the tagline on the fortune cookie. “Friendship isn’t a big thing…it’s a million little things.” #sniff!

Remember when we decided to search the internet for our favorite quotes on friendship and out of a zillion choices, we both came back with the SAME EXACT ONE. We are so MFEO (made for each other. Obviously).

Our team at HarperCollins has been amazing at creating a cover we all love. I mean THAT FONT.

Adorable.

Scrumptious.

Edible.

Cupcake-like.

This got weird fast.

I went too far.

You always do. It’s a good thing I’m here. Super straight-edge.

Do you want me to tell the story of you doing that Katy Perry dance last night?

Okay, we gotta get back to work. Book two isn’t going to write itself! And a huge literary fist bump to Katie here at Mundie Kids.

Absolutely! You are such a strong advocate for children’s books and we are so grateful for the great work you do. When our ARCs arrive, you will be first on our list. ☺

* * * * * * * * * * *

Thank you so much Lindsey and Robin for stopping by Mundie Kids today! We're looking forward to hearing more about book 2!

DR. SEUSS CLASSIC CELEBRATORY TOUR & Enter To WIN! #WhatPet


Today I am so thrilled to be apart of the Celebratory Tour for Dr. Seuss! Having grown up reading this book as a child, being apart of this tour means so much more to me than just reviewing a book. Dr. Seuss's books are timeless classics that have helped countless children learn how to read. Today I have the pleasure of featuring HOP ON POP.

ABOUT HOP ON POP



By: Dr. Seuss
Published by: Random House Kids
Released on: 2/28/1963(original release date)
Series: I Can Read It All By Myself Beginner Books Series
Ages: 3-7 years old
Rating: 5 Stars
Purchase it from: Amazon | B&N 

Loved by generations, this “simplest Seuss for youngest use” is a Beginner Book classic. See Red and Ned and Ted and Ed in a bed. And giggle as Pat sits on a hat and on a cat and on a bat . . . but a cactus? Pat must NOT sit on that! This classic Beginner Book makes an ideal gift for Seuss fans and is an especially good way to show Pop some love on Father’s Day! Originally created by Dr. Seuss, Beginner Books encourage children to read all by themselves, with simple words and illustrations that give clues to their meaning (Quoted from Amazon).

This is one of my favorite Dr Seuss books as a child. It's one I enjoyed reading to my children when they were younger. Hop On Pop is a fun read. I loved having the chance to recently read it again. With rhyming words, and easy to read words, this book is an ideal book for those toddler age through second grade. It's a great book for children who can't yet read, and those who are just learning to read. 

*Source: I received this book from the publisher to review in exchange for my honest review.

ABOUT DR. SUESS'S NEW BOOK




ABOUT WHAT PET SHOULD I GET?
In the Fall of 2013, an original manuscript with accompanying sketches by Dr. Seuss, aka Ted Geisel, was discovered in the La Jolla, California home of the late beloved children’s author. That complete manuscript was for the picture book, WHAT PET SHOULD I GET?, and will be published by Random House Children’s Books on July 28, 2015. It is the first original new Dr. Seuss book since the publication of the last book of Dr. Seuss’s career, Oh, the Places You’ll Go! in 1990. WHAT PET SHOULD I GET? captures the excitement of a classic childhood moment—choosing a pet—and features the brother and sister characters that Dr. Seuss drew in One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish.

Little Golden Book To Release STAR WARS Books!

Coming to a book store near you soon! Little Golden Books will release STAR WARS books starting on July 28th, 2015! There will be a book for each Star Wars film that has already been released. Check out the press release from Random House below:




New York, NY, July 9, 2015—The iconic Little Golden Book format will extend its collection of titles to include retellings of the epic Star Wars movies for the first time ever, as announced today by Barbara Marcus, President and Publisher, Random House Children’s Books. On July 28, 2015, the first six Star Wars Little Golden Books will be released, including illustrated retellings of The Phantom Menace, Attack of the Clones, Revenge of the Sith, A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back, and Return of the Jedi. Chris Angelilli, Vice President, Editor-in-Chief, Director of License Publishing, Random House Children’s Books, will oversee the publication of these six titles.

All Star Wars Little Golden Books will feature a custom gold spine that includes popular characters from the Star Wars universe.

These books will introduce young readers to the iconic film series that ranks among the top five highest-grossing film franchises of all time, and will be welcome additions for adult collectors and fans.

“We are thrilled to contribute to the Star Wars galaxy with these Little Golden Book retellings,” said Marcus. “Bringing together these two beloved and popular brands is a significant moment, and we look forward to sharing these epic stories in classic Little Golden Book form.”

Launched in 1942, Little Golden Books revolutionized children’s book publishing by making high-quality picture books available at affordable prices. More than 60 years later, many of the original Golden Book titles are still wildly popular.

“The Star Wars franchise has woven itself into the hearts and minds of generations of fans, many of whom read Little Golden Books as children,” said Jeanne Mosure, Senior Vice President, Group Publisher, Disney Publishing Worldwide. “We’re very excited to be incorporating Little Golden Books into our overarching strategy so parents can now introduce their own children to the wonders of the galaxy through this classic format.”
