  4. The Accidental Highwayman

    In this intricately illustrated fantasy set in 18th-century England, the young servant Kit becomes a highwayman by accident and is hurled into a grand tale with goblins, a fairy princess, a witch, and a magical map. This is a hilarious, rollicking adventure.

  5. The Doubt Factory

    Bacigalupi's counterculture take on the teen thriller turns what could be a by-the-book page-turner into a how-to for critical thinking and media literacy. A good stepping stone for teens who aren't quite ready for Cory Doctorow's Little Brother.

  6. Atlantia

    Dive into Atlantia and discover an undersea future of sirens and science, where one family's secrets will either save the world or destroy it completely. Creative world-building and an immersive mythology make this a refreshing addition to a YA shelf already filled with dystopias.

  7. Horton and the Kwuggerbug and More Lost Stories

    Here's Horton — but not hearing a Who. And a Grinch who's not green (but still decidedly grinchy). And Marco from Mulberry Street. All back in a new book of lost stories from Dr. Seuss! Horton and the Kwuggerbug is like a whimsical, wacky, absolutely beezlenutty visit from a favorite old friend.

  8. Skippyjon Jones: Snow What

    It's time to make some hot catnip cocoa and join Skippito Friskito in his newest adventure. Skippyjon Jones braves the snow, kisses, and tights to make his own "fuzzy tale." The songs are my favorite part, and there are plenty here to make this the perfect winter read-aloud.

  9. Pennyroyal Academy

    When a girl with no name enters an enchanted kingdom, she is enlisted in a war battling witches and dragons trained by a fairy drill sergeant. This unusual fantasy intriguingly combines adventure and magical mischief with the witty and compassionate writing of a master.
