Marco Polo Brave Explorer

by Cynthia Lord

Marco Polo is a retired Christmas ornament, but in his mind he is a great mouse explorer.  Because he’s tiny and likely to be lost, he is the least-borrowed of the Book Buddies and he almost never leaves the library.  But the little mouse finally meets the right match in Seth, a boy who is about to attend his first slepover.  If Seth were to bring the stuffed bunny he usually sleeps with, he’d risk being teased, but Marco Polo is the perfect size to hide away in his sleeping bag.  Are both boy and mouse in for an unexpected adventure?

Honestly Elliott

by Gillian McDunn

Elliott has never had many friends,  and he’s sure where he fits into his own family, especially since his newly remarried dad and stepmom are expecting a baby.   His only solace is cooking, where he can control the outcome, testing exciting recipes and watching his favorite cooking shows.

When he’s paired with the super-popular Maribel for a school-wide business project, Elliott is a little nervous that they won’t see eye to eye.  But Maribel is also looking for a new way to show others her true self, and sometimes the least likely friends have the most in common…and sometimes you have to make a few mistakes before you learn what’s right.
