Young Readers 8 & Up
It is rare for a work of middle-grade fiction to begin with an etymological overview of the English language but THE SWIFTS is no run-of-the-mill story. With wordplay as pleasing and cleverly crafted as Terry Pratchett and Lewis Carroll, Lincoln introduces us to the family of Shenanigan Swift; a family of peculiar people with even more peculiar traditions that will incite the curiosity of even the most cursory reader (any family that plays Scrabble to the death and whose library requires a helmet is one you want to know better.)
While the eccentric Swifts defy comparison, they remain relatable and deeply human in a book that is part mystery, part family drama, part coming-of-age comedy, and entirely delightful.
A sweet adventure full of heart and fantastical creatures.
A brave wolf, cunning witch, and rebellious girl must work together to save the forest before it is too late.
When aliens start to go missing from Area 51 it's up to Sky (the new kid on the top secret military base), Spike (the pizza-obsessed hedgehog), and Elvis (the next-door neighbor) to get to the bottom of the disappearances.
