This week we’re featuring a few new books from our children’s fiction collection!
First up, we have Kathryn Lasky’s Bears of Ice, the fantastical story of two polar bear cub twins named First and Second, who embark on a treacherous journey to rescue their mother when she is abducted by the power-hungry kabol of bears who have taken over the Northern Kingdoms. As the latest movement of the magical saga of Ga’Hoole, this book is sure to capture the imaginations of children with a taste for adventure.
Next, The Coral Island, by R.M. Ballantyne, takes us into the South Seas as three young boys- Ralph, Jack, and Peterkin- are shipwrecked and washed ashore on a deserted island. After carving out a home and learning to fend for themselves, the boys’ courage is put to the test when a horde of cannibals and pirates invade their island. Do three kids stand a chance against such terrible foes? Only time will tell…
Many more titles for readers of all ages and interests await at the Northwood City Center Library. Come see for yourself!
