Lullaby Moon by Rosie Reeve

“Slowly we wander home, too tired to play, / Sun-kissed and happy from our lovely day.”

After a day full of excitement, a parent and child mouse head home, knowing that the lullaby moon will shine down on them all through the night.

With lyrical text and cuddly pastel illustrations, this is the coziest way to ease into bedtime.[JPB REEVE]

Wish Stealers by Tracy Trivas

“The day before her first day in middle school, Griffin Penshine is tricked into accepting a box of lucky pennies from a mysterious old woman. A note in the box explains that the coins are all wishes stolen from a fountain more than 70 years ago. Griffin is now unwillingly a Wish Stealer, and in order to avoid the fate that accompanies that title, she must return the pennies to the original owners or to someone who has a similar desire.”                            [J TRIVAS]
