Ghoulish Song
Some signed copies expected. Ages 8 and up. In the town of Zombay, Kaile wants to be a musician, and is delighted when a goblin gives her a bone flute. But the flute's single mournful song separates Kaile and her shadow. They learn the flute is tied to a ghoul made from the bones of those who drowned in the River. With the ghoul chasing her and the River threatening to flood, will Kaile and her shadow be able to learn the right tune to keep Zombay safe?

Goblin Secrets
Signed by the author on the title page. Ages 8 and up. In the town of Zombay, a witch named Graba takes in stray children. Rownie is the youngest boy in her household; his only real relative is his older brother Rowan, who is an actor. But in Zombay, humans are forbidden to wear masks, perform plays, or pretend to be other than what they are. Rowan disappeared when the Mayor's Guard raided an illegal play. Desperate to find him, Rownie joins up with a troupe of goblins who skirt the law to put on plays. But their plays are not only for entertainment, and the masks they use are for more than make-believe. The goblins welcome Rownie; they also want to find Rowan, who might be the only person who can stop the mighty River from flooding the town.

Awards:
♦  Winner for the 2012 National Book Award for Young People's Literature
♦  Finalist for the 25th Annual Minnesota Book Award for Young People's Literature


Recommended by Elizabeth: A very enjoyable, not too scary fantasy. I particularly enjoyed the goblin theater troupe, and the behind the scenes look at live theater and acting.
