King of the Zoo
They say the lion is king of the jungle, but who's the king of the zoo? Meet Carlos the Chameleon, the true king of the zoo...or so he thought! When his friends point out that he's not the zoo's only king, Carlos must defend his kingdom! The kangaroo makes Carlos hopping mad. The monkey has Carlos scratching his head in disbelief. The elephant, too? Who knew? Will Carlos regain his rightful place on the throne or is he just being a royal pain? From the hilarious Erica S. Perl and the NEW YORK TIMES Bestselling Illustrator, Jackie Urbanovic, KING OF THE ZOO is a read-aloud riot that will have everyone cheering for the little Chameleon on his king-sized quest.
Zelly Fried has finally convinced her parents to let her get a dog, with the help of her grandfather Ace. Unfortunately, said dog (also named Ace) is a shoe-chewing, mud-tracking, floor-peeing kind of dog. Despite Zelly's best efforts to drag Ace (literally!) to puppy kindergarten, his flunking report card says it all: "This Ace is wild." Also wild is the other Ace in Zelly's life. Grandpa Ace has decided to begin dating again and is dining and dancing every night, against his doctor's orders. Determined to get both Aces under control, Zelly enlists the help of her two best friends, Allison and Jeremy (despite the fact that they don't quite see eye to eye). They need to come up with a plan, fast. But how? It's not like either Ace ever does what he's told.
Veronica Walsh is 15, fashion-minded, fat, and friendless. Her summer job in the Consignment Corner section (Employees Only!) of a vintage clothing store is a dream come true. There Veronica can spend her days separating the one-of-a-kind gem garments from the Dollar-a-Pound duds, without having to deal with people. But when two outrageous yet charismatic salesgirls befriend her and urge her to spy on and follow the mysterious and awkward stock boy Veronica has nicknamed the Nail, Veronica’s summer takes a turn for the weird. Suddenly, what began as a prank turns into something else entirely. Which means Veronica may have to come out of hiding and follow something even riskier for the first time: her heart. From the Hardcover edition.
