Publisher Comments:

Twelve-year-old Zack Delacruz has remained happily unnoticed at his middle schoolandmdash;until now. He takes the advice he hears at an assembly and stands up to the class bully. Somehow this uncharacteristic behavior gets Zack labeled a leader and put in charge of the sixth-grade dance fundraiser with none other than the bully himself! Middle school was starting out hard enough for Zack without this extra pressure and attention. His situation goes from bad to worse when Zack learns that his best salesperson for the chocolate bar fundraiser has been EATING, not selling, her candy bars. The mayhem continues with a hilarious andldquo;intervention,andrdquo; a desperate effort to raise money, a scary meeting with the principal, and even water balloons filled with pee. Zack never wanted to be the class hero, but with the hopes of the entire sixth grade on the line, can he save the day?

Synopsis:

Zack Delacruz is unnoticed at his middle schoolandmdash;and thatandrsquo;s just the way he likes it. But a school assembly, a typhoon of spit, and an uncharacteristic moment of bravery are all it takes to change everything. Suddenly Zack is in charge of the class fundraiser. Worse, his partner is the schoolandrsquo;s biggest bully! If they donandrsquo;t sell all the chocolate bars, there will be no dance for the sixth grade. and#160;Zack never wanted to be a hero, but with his classmatesandrsquo; hopes on the line, can he save the day?

Synopsis:

This magical follow-up to Horten's Miraculous Mechanisms continues Stuart's amazing adventures--with more enchantment, more surprises, and more thrills. When we last left 10-year-old Stuart, he had just recovered his great-uncle Tony's long-lost magic workshop. Now all the priceless tricks are on display in the Beeton Museum--and Stuart is junior curator of the exhibit! But another mystery awaits Stuart: Where did the great magician hide his will? Only by entering the magic world of the workshop can he find the answer. But as the mechanisms whisk him off on increasingly incredible adventures, the puzzles become harder and harder to solve…and the stakes higher. With even more page-turning action, this second book in the exciting middle-grade series does a magic trick of its own: it's even better than the first!

About the Author

Lissa Evans, who resides in London with her husband and two daughters, has traveled quite a mysterious path to middle-grade novelist. After a brief career in medicine and an even briefer one in stand-up comedy, Lissa became a comedy producer and spent a decade running a red pencil through other people's work before eventually beginning to write herself. Lissa has written three adult novels and a picture book. This is her second work of middle-grade fiction.
