  • Aru Shah and the End of Time by Roshani Chokshi is a new adventure into Hindu mythology. Twelve-year-old Aru Shah has been known to exaggerate and tell lies. Her mother works at the Museum of Ancient Indian Art and Culture where they also live. It’s the perfect place for a girl with an imagination. One day when 3 of her classmates show up at the museum to catch Aru in a lie, something goes terribly wrong. Only Aru can save them from an ancient curse. Author Roshani is just 28 years old and this is her 5th novel. (paperback)
  • Harvey Comes Home by Colleen Nelson. An adventurous West Higland Terrier named Harvey runs away from home searching for his young owner, Maggie. Harvey quickly becomes lost but is fortunately taken in by Austin, a young boy who desperately wants a dog of his own. Austin is a volunteer at a retirement home and he soon discovers that this special dog has the ability to connect with everyone, including a very grumpy elderly resident. Austin’s love for Harvey makes it very difficult to do the right thing and track down Harvey’s owner. The story is cleverly told in alternating chapters by Harvey, Maggie and Austin. Author Colleen Nelson is from Winnipeg, Manitoba. The adorable illustrations are by Tara Anderson from Tweed, Ontario. I can’t wait to read the sequel, Harvey Holds His Own, publishing in July 2020.
