I know you all loved The Invention of Hugo Cabret, an amazing story unfolding in words and pictures — a book so amazing that in 2008, it won the Caldecott Medal, the highest honor for an illustrated book. If you haven’t checked out the website, visit www.scholastic.com/hugocabret

Brian Selznick once again takes you on an awe-inspiring journey.

Set 50 years apart, two independent stories — Ben’s told in words and Rose’s in pictures — weave back and forth. Ben and Rose secretly wish their lives were different. Ben longs for the father he has never known. Rose dreams of a mysterious actress whose life she chronicles in a scrapbook. When Ben discovers a puzzling clue in his mother’s room and Rose reads an enticing headline in the newspaper, both children set out alone on desperate quests to find what they are missing.

33. Road trip recap...

It's been quite a busy couple of weeks since last I posted. The family and I drove down from Northampton to New Orleans for this year's ALA Conference, but before we left I had a chance to meet & hear Tomi Ungerer speak at the Eric Carle Museum, where a retrospective is currently on exhibit.  It's a great show, you should go (also the Barbara McClintock show in the middle gallery is amazing).  A

41. Sneak Peek: Framed by Gordon Korman

Stacks_framed_130x130 If you loved Swindle and Zoobreak by Gordan Korman, then we have good news for you: The Man With The Plan (aka Griffin Bing) will be back this September in a new sequel, Framed. In this book, Griffin is accused of stealing an authentic Super Bowl ring from the school display case. He didn't do it of course, but all the evidence points directly to him. Somebody set Griffin up to take the fall. But who would do that and why? All Griffin knows is that he's being framed for a crime he didn't commit. Read on for a sneak peek at the book. . .

"Out of my way!" bawled the principal. He waded through the throng and began to work at the lock on the glass panel, trying key after key from a large ring.

Griffin ran up. “What happened?” he asked a tall student who seemed to have a good vantage point on what was going on.

“Somebody stole the Super Bowl ring.”

“But how?” asked Ben, watching the distraught principal searching for the right key. “The case is locked up tight.”

At last, the principal slid the panel aside and reached his hand in. Griffin wiggled to the front for a better view. The view was clearer, but not better. It was true. Art Blankenship's Super Bowl ring was indeed gone. In its place on the black velvet was a small object — pink plastic and shiny silver wire. It was —

Griffin goggled. No. Impossible —

Dr. Egan's beefy hand closed on the item. He brought it out of the case and examined it. His wild eyes found Griffin in the crowd.

Griffin was in a state of shock. He stared at the piece, unable to believe his eyes.

“What is it?” whispered Ben, who was too short to see what the principal was holding.

“A retainer,” said Griffin in a strangled voice. Engraved on the plastic palate were five letters:

G. BING

“I want that ring back,” the principal ordered. “Now.”

“I don’t have it.” Griffin was barely able to conjure the breath to get any sound past his lips. “I didn’t take it.”

“How do you explain the retainer, then?” Dr. Egan demanded. “Since the first day of school, every time you open your mouth, that thing falls out. Well, you should have kept your mouth shut while you were stealing the ring! Because now your retainer proves that you're guilty.”

“I'm not! The case was locked!”

“That wouldn't be a problem for an experienced burglar,” the principal accused. “Locks have never stopped you before, have they?”

The Man With The Plan had been confronted with the unexpected many times. He'd been surprised, astonished, even blown away. But never had he been so completely and utterly blindsided to the point where he could not even find the words to defend himself. He stared at the retainer, incapable of believing his own eyes. He could barely work up any anger at Dr. Egan for putting the blame on him. With this kind of evidence against him, he almost blamed himself.

“I lost my retainer a few days ago,” he managed finally. “Ask anybody. All my friends know.”

“You mean your accomplices?” the principal challenged. “Not the most reliable witnesses.”

“Somebody must have found it, and they did this to frame me!”

“All I know,” Dr. Egan told him, “is that a major piece of sports history is missing, an item of jewelry worth tens of thousands of dollars. If you don't hand it over, I'm going to have to take this to the next level.”     All Griffin could say was, “It wasn't me.”

The principal addressed his studen

42. NEW Dear America Book Sneak Peek

DearAmerica Welcome to Scholastic Booktalks where we recommend brand new Scholastic books that we think you will love. Today's booktalk is an all new title in the Dear America series: The Fences Between Us by Kirby Larson.

13-year-old Piper Davis has been given a diary. She's never used one before, but because of everything happening in her life, she's glad she has one. It's 1941 and Europe is at war. Even though Piper and her family live in Seattle, Washington, there is talk that America might become involved with the war.

Piper's dad is the minister of the Seattle Japanese Baptist Church. Piper and her family have always been close to her dad's congregation. But when Japan attacks Pearl Harbor, the Japanese-Americans in Piper’s town start getting harassed by some of the white townspeople. Even at school, Piper's friend, Betty, suffers from a humiliating attack by her classmates.

When President Roosevelt orders all residents of Japanese heritage to be put into internment camps, Piper's father decides to move also, to be closer to his congregation. Piper doesn't understand why they have to move. The war will be over soon and the Japanese-Americans will be able to return home. But Piper quickly finds out this is not the case. These temporary camps seem more permanent. And the barbed wire and the watchtowers make it feel more like a prison, not a camp.

Why can't anyone understand that the people in these camps aren't the bad guys? They are good people who love America and would never do anything to hurt it. Will the war end soon? Will the Japanese community be able to return to a normal life? Find out in Dear America: The Fences Between Us.

Sneak Peek!
This book won't be in stores until September 1, but you can download a sneak peek excerpt right now!
