Is it a book? Is it a robot? The authors who brought you Dragons Love Tacos bring you Robo-Sauce. This book is brilliant--it amazingly turns into a robot book at the end. I had to run around and show everyone after I read it!

Pet Rescue Club: No Time for Hallie by Catherine Hapka
If animal adventures are for you, then the Pet Rescue Club series is perfect. Each story is based on a real animal that was rescued from a shelter, with facts about the animal listed on a detachable bookmark inside the front cover. When you buy these books, you help save a pet's life. 5% of the purchase price of every Pet Rescue Club book goes directly to the ASPCA.
Grades 5 and up
This graphic novel is not for the faint of heart. It's a powerful look at one of America's worst disasters masterfully depicted in rather shocking scenes. I couldn't put it down.
One kid. One crime. One chance to make things right--a novel inspired by the work of folk artist James Hampton. I can't recommend this book enough. I just loved it!
