    A clever tale that will charm booklovers. Brother Hugo can’t return his library book—the letters of St. Augustine—because, it turns out, the precious book has been devoured by a bear! Instructed by the abbot to borrow another monastery’s copy and create a replacement, the hapless monk painstakingly crafts a new book, copying it letter by letter and line by line. But when he sets off to return the borrowed copy, he finds himself trailed by his hungry new friend. Once a bear has a taste of letters, it appears, he’s rarely satisfied! Brother Hugo and the Bear is loosely based on a note found in a twelfth-century manuscript—and largely on the creative imaginings of author Katy Beebe. This humorous tale is sure to delight readers who have acquired their own taste for books.

    At last, the eagerly awaited sequel to Seraphina has arrived—and with it comes an epic battle between humans and dragons. The kingdom of Goredd: a world where humans and dragons share life with an uneasy balance, and those few who are both human and dragon must hide the truth. Seraphina is one of these, part girl, part dragon, who is reluctantly drawn into the politics of her world. When war breaks out between the dragons and humans, she must travel the lands to find those like herself—for she has an inexplicable connection to all of them, and together they will be able to fight the dragons in powerful, magical ways.  As Seraphina gathers this motley crew, she is pursued by humans who want to stop her. But the most terrifying is another half dragon, who can creep into people’s minds and take them over. Until now, Seraphina has kept her mind safe from intruders, but that also means she’s held back her own gift. It is time to make a choice: cling to the safety of her old life, or embrace a powerful new destiny?

    National Book Award winner Kathryn Erskine presents a unique novel about a sickly boy’s epic journey through England and Scotland at the height of medieval times. Adrian is small for his age, even for an almost thirteen year old. It doesn’t help that he has albinism, which makes those he meets wonder if he’s an angel or a devil. His father is a bowyer, and all Adrian wants to do is become apprenticed and go off to war as an archer. But that’s not what his father wants for him. Since Adrian can write, his father wants him to be a scribe. That’s just about the last thing Adrian wants. When the Scots invade England and Adrian’s best friend Hugh runs off to find his father and fight in battles, Adrian soon follows, intent on finding Hugh and joining him in glorious warfare against the pagans invading England from the north. When Adrian finds Hugh, who is caring for a wounded Scotsman, he’s horrified that Hugh would aid an enemy. But soon, as Adrian gets to know Donald, he begins to question what he’s been taught about the enemy and the nature of war. In this epic journey, an afflicted boy finds an inner strength he never knew belonged to him.

    In a sensual paranormal romance, a teen girl’s doppelgänger from 1348 Florence lures her into the past in hopes of exacting a deadly trade. It was meant to be a diversion—a summer in Florence with her best friend, Liam, and his travel-writer mom, doing historical research between breaks for gelato. It was a chance to forget that back in Vermont, May’s parents, and all semblance of safety, were breaking up. But when May wakes one night sensing someone in her room, only to find her ghostly twin staring back at her, normalcy becomes a distant memory. And when later she follows the menacing Cristofana through a time portal to fourteenth-century Florence, May never expects to find safety in the eyes of Marco, a soulful painter who awakens in her a burning desire and makes her feel truly seen. The wily Cristofana wants nothing less of May than to inhabit each other’s lives, but with the black death ravaging Florence, can May’s longing for Marco’s touch be anything but madness? Lush with atmosphere both passionate and eerie, this evocative tale follows a girl on the brink of womanhood as she dares to transcend the familiar—and discovers her sensual power.

    Long ago and far away there was a castle—but not just any castle. This was a castle that glittered and sparkled and rose majestically above the banks of the winding Winono River: the Castle Corona. And in this castle lived a family—but not just any family. This was the family of King Guido: rich and royal and spoiled. And King Guido was so spoiled that neither jewels nor gold nor splendid finery could please him, for what he longed for most was a nap and a gown that didn’t itch. Far below this grand, glittering castle lived two peasants—but not just any peasants. These peasants, though poor and pitiful, were plucky and proud … and in possession of a stolen pouch—but not just any pouch. It was a pouch whose very contents had the power to unlock secrets and transform lives. And oh, there is an author—but not just any author. Sharon Creech is a Newbery Medal–winning author whose tantalizing tale will not only dazzle and delight but also entertain and excite.

    When young John of Wycliffe arrives at Oxford University in the fourteenth century, he finds it a fascinating and perilous place. With his student friends, John experiences the terrible plague called “the pestilence” (the Black Death) and becomes involved in clashes between university factions as well as riots among the townspeople. When he can find time away from his studies, his favorite place is the inn of the Kicking Pony, where he and his companions discuss the political and religious issues of the day; it is here that he first shares his growing vision of an English Bible for all Englishmen to read. In the darkness of medieval England, John’s pursuit of truth gleams like a solitary star, the morning star that promises the sunrise to come. He paved the way for the theologians of the next century, and opened hearts in preparation for the great Reformation itself.
