NEW BOOKS AND BOOKS NEW TO BUNTING LIBRARY: This is a new display set up just inside the library. Some of these books are brand new, while others may not necessarily be new, but were newly donated to the library.

Over the past few months, we have highlighted books for younger children and adults. Most of the selections this month were chosen for middle school age and older youth.

  • Midnight on the Moon, Dolphins at Daybreak and Eve of the Emperor Penguin are three new books that have been added to Mary Pope Osborne’s popular Magic Tree House series. Jack and Annie are whisked away by the magic tree house on further exciting learning adventures!
  • Chocolate Fever, by Robert Kimmel Smith. Henry Green loves chocolate in all its forms, for every meal of the day and in between snacks, too. One day he finds that strange things are happening to him and he makes medical history with the only case of Chocolate Fever ever! What next???
  • The Secret in the Matchbox, by Val Willis. Bobby Bell’s secret is hidden in a matchbox. His teacher takes it away and puts it in her desk. But the secret gets out and grows bigger and BIGGER…!
  • Ginger Pye, by Eleanor Estes. (Newbery Medal Winner) Ginger is the hard-earned dog (bought for a dollar) belonging to Jerry Pye. Ginger is smart, knows many tricks, is loyal, and steals the hearts of all he meets. But then, someone steals him!
  • Hoot, by Carl Hiaasen. (A Newbery Honor Book) This off-beat, hilarious book tells the story of middle-school screwballs, greedy developers and other quirky characters. It’s a pro-environmental, kid-empowering tale—and you don’t have to be a young adult to enjoy its satirical wit!
