Happy new year from your LREI librarians. Our new year’s good news is that a slew of new books came flooding in and will shortly be on the shelves for your kids to enjoy. We’ve got new series books including My Weird School, Guardians of Ga’Hoole and Ivy & Bean. We’ve got new non-fiction on such subjects as sharks, space stations and sustainability, and a gorgeously illustrated new book called Swords, which is about . . . swords!
Of course, we have new picture books in plenitude, as well. This includes If . . . , a book of mind-boggling optical illusions, Jumpy Jack and Googily, about two friends looking to keep clear of monsters, and Boys of Steel, about the two teenagers who created Superman. We also have brand new copies of Fall is Not Easy and Batman: the Story of the Dark Knight, two titles which have been getting checked in and out so fast that they’re leaving scorch marks on our shelves.
Please come and see for yourself the array of titles I haven’t mentioned here. And don’t forget to have a lovely 2009.
