Narwhal and Jelly
These are Lindsay’s favorites! Cute, easy-to-read, and silly! Narwhal is a happy-go-lucky narwhal. Jelly is a no-nonsense jellyfish. The two might not have a lot in common, but they do both love waffles, parties and adventures. Join Narwhal and Jelly as they discover the whole wide ocean together. Perfect for grades 1-3, or older reluctant readers.
Wicked History Series
These intriguing looks into history’s bad guys (and girls) are perfect for middle schoolers.

You’ll find Catherine the Great in the YA section, but Cixi and Henry VIII are catalogued at juvenile fiction.
Who Was/Who Is

The Secret Series by Pseudonymous Bosch
Not only is the name of this series a secret, but the story is, too. For it concerns a secret – a big secret – that has been tormenting people like you for over… oh no! Did I just mention the secret? Then it’s too late. I’m afraid nothing will stop you now. Read this series if you must. But please, tell no one.
Kids in grades 3-7 will love these humorously suspenseful books!
