If you enjoyed Rex’s Goodnight Goon, you certainly won’t want to miss his newest “petrifying parody,” The Runaway Mummy (a take on Margaret Wise Brown’s The Runaway Bunny). Little Mummy wants to run away, but no matter where he goes or what he becomes, Mother Mummy explains she will always be there to care for him.

Shiver is the story of a girl, Grace, and her wolf, but Grace has recently discovered that he is not JUST a wolf. He is also a boy, Sam. The werewolves in this paranormal romance are different from what you might expect. Their change is not dictated by the moon, but rather, temperature: wolves in colder months and humans in warmer months. Sam senses his final change is near and Grace struggles to keep him warm, human. This is a MUST READ for Twilight fans. I couldn’t put it down!
