Durinda´s Dangers by Lauren Baratz-Logsted with Greg Logsted & Jackie Logsted.

Sisters 8,  book 2

The story always begins the same . . . until it changes.

The Sisters Eight are still on their own. Mommy and Daddy are still missing (or dead). But Annie´s found her gift and her power-only fourteen more to go! So maybe things are looking up.

Or not.

Carl, the talking refrigerator, ids on the fritz. He can´t keep anything cold and leaves puddles of salty water on the floor. And the Wicket, their nosy neighbor, is up to no good. Could it have something to do with Mommy and Daddy´s disappearance? The Sisters Eight are going to find out.

Meanwhile, the girls continue to look for their powers and gifts. This time it´s Durinda´s turn, and boy, is her power a doozy!

The search for Mommy and Daddy continues in Georgia´s Greatness, already available at Encino Library.

Petal´s problems by Lauren Baratz-Logsted with Greg Logsted & Jackie Logsted.

Oh, No!

It should be Petal´s month -June- now, right? The only thing is, it´s not -at least, not yet. It´s still May, and here are the Eights, looking at a wedding invitation.

This is perfectly fine. As far as Petal is concerned, it could stay May forever. Your see, Petal doesn´t want June to come, because Petal desn´t want her power.

But it doesn´t really matter what Petal wants, does it?

Time can´t be stopped. So even if it´s not quite June yet, the month must inevitably come. And when it does, it will be time for…

Oh, no! Petal power!

Exquisite Corpse Adventure

An Exquisite Corpse is an old game in which people write a phrase on a sheet of paper, fold it over to conceal part of it and pass it on to the next player to do the same. The game ends when someone finishes the story, which is then read aloud.

The Library of Congress (one of the biggest libraries in the world)  has its own “Exquisite Corpse Adventure” and it works this way: Jon Scieszka, the National Ambassador for Young People’s Literature, has written the first episode, then he has passed it on to a cast of celebrated writers and illustrators, who already bring the story to the end.

You can read it or hear it online: http://read.gov/exquisite-corpse/

Or if you prefer to visit our Library, you can also read it here!

Georgia´s Greatness by Lauren Baratz-Logsted with Greg Logsted and Jackie Logsted.

It was a dark and stormy night, when Annie and Durinda had discovered their gifts and powers. Now we´re in March, that menas is Georgia´s turn. What a fitting month it is for her – all that in-like-a-lion stuff really suits her personality.

So, here it is, the first of March, rain pouring down. Georgia, with her usual glum puss, is staring out when a pigeon crashes into the glass. Oops! The poor bird is carrying something. Why, it´s Georgia´s gift! A beautiful compact mirror!

What does Georgia do with this lovely gift?

Marcia´s Madness by Lauren Baratz-Logsted with Greg Logsted and Jackie Logsted.

Questions!

Questions!

Questions!

The Sisters Eight have so many questions and so few answers! Luckily, one more month means on more Eight will discover her power and her gift, which means they´re one step closer to discovering what happened to Mommy and Daddy on New Year´s Eve.

Marcia´s month is about to begin. You remember Marcia, right? The sensible one? The reasonable one? The one who would never do anything …crazy?

Rebecca´s Rashness by Lauren Baratz-Logsted with Greg Logsted and Jackie Logsted.

The Sisters 8, number 7 is already in the library!

The Sisters Eight have so many questions and so few answers! Luckily, one more month means one more Eight will discover her power and her gift, which means they´re one step closer to discovering what happened to Mommy and Daddy on New Year´s Eve.

Now, there´s a word for the old vocabulary list. Dread, a noun meaning “a great fear, especially in the face of impending evil.”

Dread.

Why?, you ask. What could invoke such a strong feeling? Three words: Rebecca is next. Seven out of eight Eights don´t want Rebecca to have her power. But there´s nothing they can do about it.
