8280214THE PRINCESS OF 8TH STREET

(Abrams)

Jane, the Princess of 8th Street, must attend to her many royal duties. Between studying Math for Monarchs and having tea with her “ladies in waiting” – not to mention dealing with her horrible toad brother – Jane has little time for other young nobility.

On a trip to the market, her mother, the Queen, encourages Jane to join the other children in the playground. Smaller and more delicate than the lords and ladies there, Princess Jane reluctantly complies. How will Princess Jane cope when she is singled out?

This charming, humorous story reveals that royal titles cannot match the singular power of friendship.

PEANUT

(Scholastic)

Poor Mildred is very lonely – until she gets a new pet. She names him Peanut, and decides he’s a dog.

There’s a problem, though: Peanut isn’t like all the other dogs. He doesn’t roll over. He never fetches. And his nose is much, much bigger than that of a poodle, terrier or pug. Perhaps there’s more to Peanut than meet’s Mildred’s eye…
