Ona Judge outwits the Washingtons

2019

by Gwendolyn Hooks and Simone Agoussoye

"Soon after American colonists had won independence from Great Britain, Ona Judge was fighting for her own freedom from one of America's most famous founding fathers, George Washington. George and Martha Washington valued Ona as one of their most skilled and trustworthy slaves, but she would risk everything to achieve complete freedom. Born into slavery at Mount Vernon, Ona seized the opportunity to escape when she was brought to live in the President's Mansion in Philadelphia. Ona fled to New Hampshire and started a new life. But the Washingtons wouldn't give up easily. After her escape, Ona became the focus of a years- long manhunt, led by America's first president. Gwendolyn Hooks' vivid and detailed prose captures the danger, uncertainty, and persistence Ona Judge experienced during and after her heroic escape."--Provided by publisher

2019

by Elizabeth Suneby and Laurel Molk

But how will this yowling, squawking, snorting, snuffling chaos help Mia's cause? She plans to convince her mom that there's plenty of room for a pup--at least, once all the other animals are gone! This hilarious twist on the classic Yiddish folktale is a valuable reminder that there is always room for one more"--

The piano recital

2019

by Akiko Miyakoshi

"It's the day of Momo's very first piano recital, and she is terribly nervous. Today is the day of a little mouseling's very first performance, too, and she's just as nervous as Momo. The mouseling invites Mom to watch her performance. Momo follows the mouseling through a small door backstage, where she's met with an amazing sight: an elaborate miniature theatre, and an audience of finely dressed mice! When the Grand Mouse-ter takes the stage, a hush falls over the crowd and a magical show unfolds - a circus, a magic act, acrobats! Momo is delighted. And when it's the mouseling's turn to take the stage, Momo soothes her little friend's nerves - her own now long forgotten - and accompanies her on piano. As Momo finishes her piece and gives a bow, she's surprised to see that her audience isn't furry and miniature, but human! And they're all clapping - for her! A proud Momo is quite sure she can hear mouse paw-clapping, too..."--
