  • THE DAY THE CRAYONS CAME HOME by Drew Daywalt and Oliver Jeffers

    If you have a child in your house, you have probably read and reread the delightful picture book, The Day the Crayons Quit. You’ll be glad to know the author and illustrator have this charming follow-up book. What happens to crayons that don’t get put back into the crayon box? Some get lost beneath sofa cushions, others get broken in two, some even wind up in the dryer. Oh, No! This is their mournful story as they write to Duncan pleading for him to find them and get them back where they belong in their comfy home in the crayon box.

    Book 5 in this exciting young adult series finds Michael Vey and the Electroclan, a group of young people with extraordinary electrical and other powers, pitted against the Elgen and Admiral-General Hatch’s evil master plan to take over the rest of the world. There are signs that some of the Elgen are beginning to revolt. Can the Electroclan take advantage of that dissent, or is it just another trap to destroy them? Adults and young adults alike have been enjoying this fast-paced, electrifying series.

    Based on a true story, this book travels back to the golden era of the Hollywood of the 1930s when the movie business was booming and actors and actresses like Clark Gable, Loretta Young, Spencer Tracy, David Niven, and Myrna Loy were all the rage. But there is so much to tell about what goes on behind the scenes in the private lives of those in the industry, and Trigiani paints them with a luminance and intensity that shows their lives away from the silver screen were every bit as captivating as those on it. The relationship between Clark Gable and Loretta Young garners much of her attention in this story. So much so, that after you finish the book, you’ll want to watch their stellar movie, The Call of the Wild!
  • CIRCLING THE SUN by Paula McLain

    If you enjoy historical fiction, this book is for you. In it, we are introduced to young Beryl Markham, who has been abandoned by her mother and is being raised by her father and the native Kipsigis tribe on her father’s plantation in Kenya, Africa in the early 1920’s. She grows into a strong, independent woman who becomes an expert horse trainer and eventually a record-setting aviator. Along the way, she makes the acquaintance of safari hunter Denys Finch Hatten and eventually finds herself in a passionate love triangle with Denys and Karen Blixen, who, as Isak Dinesen, wrote the classic memoir Out of Africa. This is a story of a strong woman who lives life according to her own terms and does what it takes to fulfill her dreams.

The new BIG READ book for 2016 is Orphan Train by Christina Baker Kline. This deeply satisfying novel sheds light on an almost forgotten period in America's past. There was a time in the early 1900s when many orphaned or abandoned children were "shipped" west on trains to be taken in by homesteaders, sometimes as loved members of a new family, but oftentimes they were treated as indentured servants. The story is told by a 91 year old woman who had been on an orphan train in her youth and she recounts the experience to a modern-day teen. It's a powerful story that has received marvelous reviews. We'll let you know when the community events surrounding the Big Read take place.

Thank you for being our customers.

All of us at Books & Co wish you a joyful Holiday Season.

Warm regards,
