The Ickabog

J.K. Rowling

Once upon a time there was a tiny kingdom called Cornucopia, as rich in happiness as it was in gold, and famous for its food. From the delicate cream cheeses of Kurdsburg to the Hopes-of-Heaven pastries of Chouxville, each was so delicious that people wept with joy as they ate them.

 

But even in this happy kingdom, a monster lurks. Legend tells of a fearsome creature living far to the north in the Marshlands… the Ickabog. Some say it breathes fire, spits poison, and roars through the mist as it carries off wayward sheep and children alike. Some say it’s just a myth…

 

And when that myth takes on a life of its own, casting a shadow over the kingdom, two children – best friends Bert and Daisy – embark on a great adventure to untangle the truth and find out where the real monster lies, bringing hope and happiness to Cornucopia once more.

Klawde Evil Alien Warlord Cat

Target: Earth

Johnny Marciano

Klawde is not your basic cat. He’s an emperor from another planet, exiled to Earth. He’s cruel. He’s cunning. He’s brilliant… and he’s also Raj Banerjee’s best friend.

In book four of the Klawde series, our favorite warlord cat turns his malevolent gaze to the one target he never thought he’d consider: Earth. But conquering a world is a challenge, even for Klawde, and he’ll need two things for his plan to succeed: an army of zombie squirrels, and, of course, money. Lots of money. And he has a plan to get it.

Meanwhile, as his evil pet plots world domination, Raj is also trying to make some extra cash. He’s dying for a cool virtual-reality headset and is determined to get his yard-cleaning business off the ground to pay for it. But when a friendly neighbor catches wind of Klawde’s plan, Raj and Klawde’s stories collide, and Raj may end up paying for his cat’s schemes…

Will Klawde’s thirst for power finally be quenched? Can Raj bear the responsibility of a small business? And why are all the squirrels acting strange…?

Heavily illustrated, with a hilarious, biting voice that switches between Raj’s and Klawde’s perspectives, this is the story of an unlikely friendship that emerges between a boy and the evil cat who arrived on his doorstep.
