Books of the Week (the final one of this academic year)

Great for story-time (age 4+): That's What Makes a Hippopotamus Smile! By Sean Taylor

When a hippopotamus comes round to your house don' t be worried or scared by his size, just hug him and open the door really wide because... that's what makes a hippopotamus come inside! What do you do when a hippopotamus comes to visit? Play splashy-sploshy games, of course, to make him happy. Share silly toys in a big warm bath, to make him laugh. Give him a great big crunchy salad-treat, as that's what a hippo likes to eat. And when he's ready to go home, do a little dance and say goodbye in style - because that's what makes a hippopotamus smile! And now that you' re his new best friend he' ll be sure to want to come round again - maybe not on his own next time!

For younger readers (age 8+): The Princess in Black and the Perfect Princess Party by Shannon Hale

Inconvenient monster alarms, a sparkly array of princess guests, and spot-on slapstick pacing make for a party readers will celebrate.

Today is Princess Magnolia’s birthday party, and she wants everything to be perfect. But just as her guests are arriving . . . Brring! Brring! The monster alarm! Princess Magnolia runs to the broom closet, ditches her frilly clothes, and becomes the Princess in Black! She rushes to the goat pasture, defeats the monster, and returns to the castle before her guests discover her secret. But every time Princess Magnolia is about to open her presents, the monster alarm rings again. And every time she rushes back—an inside-out dress here, a missing shoe there—it gets harder to keep the other princesses from being suspicious. Don’t those monsters understand that now is not a good time for an attack?

For older readers (age 10+): Wolf Hollow by Lauren Wolk

Harper Lee has a worthy successor. Wolk is a big new talent - The Times Annabelle has lived in Wolf Hollow all her life: a quiet place, still scarred by two world wars. But when cruel, manipulative Betty arrives in town, Annabelle's calm world is shattered, along with everything she's ever known about right and wrong. When Betty disappears, suspicion falls on strange, gentle loner Toby. As Wolf Hollow turns against him, and tensions quickly mount, Annabelle must do everything in her power to protect Toby - and to find Betty, before it is too late. Powerful, poignant and lyrical, Wolf Hollow is an unforgettable story.

Non-Fiction: Guinness World Records: Science & Stuff by Guinness World Records

Packed with spectacular superlatives, shocking stats, fantastic facts and fun figures, Science and Stuff celebrates the simple joy in finding things out. What can cats teach us about the laws of physics? Why was cabbage banned on the International Space Station? (Can you fart in space?) And would a penny dropped from the Empire State Building really kill someone? (Short answer: No!) But it's not all facts and stats. The feature chapter just for Makers, introduced by our very own mad professor Burnaby Q. Orbax, challenges you to attempt record-breaking science experiments at home, from the fastest Mentos & Soda rocket car to the most slime thrown and caught in a minute! Join us as we rise from the deepest depths of the ocean, where weird glowing fish hunt in the darkness, to the mountaintop observatories where scientists unravel the secrets of the universe.
