  8. 8. Soapstone Signs Jeff Pinkney Illustrated by Darlene Gait Only the carver knows the soapstone’s true shape. One spring,a nine-year-old Cree boy is visited by a master soapstone carver named Linny,who gives him four pieces of soapstone. The primary secret to carving, the boy learns, is recog- nizing that each piece of soapstone already holds its true form inside. Linny teaches the boy to listen to the soapstone and look to the world around him for signs as to what to carve. As the seasons change, the young boy’s experiences lend him opportunities to develop his carving skills and become attuned to the signs around him. He eagerly awaits the following spring, which will bring Linny’s return and a chance to show off his carvings. Jeff Pinkney holds an English degree from Trent University, is a former newspaper columnist, and currently works as a business advisor. Soapstone Signs, his first work of fiction, draws on Jeff’s experiences while traveling as a development consultant in Canada’s James Bay Frontier, where he acquired a deep appreciation for the people and the landscape. Jeff is an emerging poet, writer and an amateur stone carver. He and his wife Leslie share a brood of three story-loving daughters. They are surrounded by soapstone carvings in their Peterborough, Ontario home.

Savannah Blue, aka the Queen of Mean, criti- cizes Justine’s secondhand clothes and calls being green a waste of time.Their teacher, Mrs. Howie, gives the girls a new assignment for Earth Day—they must present together to the class on why it’s important to care for the environment.

Nine-year-old Skye has always had a fascination with flying. She’d love to be a pilot someday, like both of her parents, but deep down she really wishes she could be a bird. When Skye’s parents take her to Costa Rica, she is thrilled about all of the beautiful exotic birds she’ll get to see. What she doesn’t realize is that her parents have three big surprises planned, and each will offer her a different opportunity to feel what it’s like to fly. From snorkeling with baby sea turtles to parasailing out on the open ocean to zip-lining through the Costa Rican jungle, Skye will have more than one chance to fly like a bird before this trip of a lifetime is through. Eric Walters began writing in 1993 as a way to entice his grade-five students into becoming more interested in reading and writing.

He is a tireless presenter, speaking to more than seventy thousand students per year in schools across the country.

All houses have them, but not all houses are alike. Some have wings (airplane homes), some have wheels (Romany vardoes), some float; some are made of straw, some of snow and ice. Some are enormous, some are tiny; some are permanent and some are temporary. But all are home. Take Shelter explores the way people live all over the world and beyond—from the Arctic to the Antarctic, from an underground house in Las Vegas to the International Space Station. Everywhere people live, they adapt to their surroundings and create unique environments, using innovative techniques to provide that most basic of needs: shelter. Nikki Tate is the author of many books for children and teens, including Down to Earth in the Orca Footprints series. When she isn’t writing, she can be found caring for the many animals on her small farm, tending her garden or snuggling between her two dogs, reading. For more information, visit www.nikkitate.com. Dani Tate-Stratton lives with her husband, mom and grandfather on a small urban farm near Victoria, British Columbia, where she is a graphic designer, writer, compulsive crafter and reluctant farmer.

He has a guitar (given to him by a teen named Headcase), but no teacher and nowhere to practice (his dad hates rock ’n’ roll).The Dunces’ plan to convince Principal Hale to reinstate the program involves Josh’s reluctant participation in a hockey team, Magnolia’s enthusiastic role-playing and Wang’s disillusionment with a suspicious character named Hui Bing (aka Larry). But can the Dunces really rock, even when they rebrand themselves as Uncle Willy and the Wang Dang Doodles?

  14. 14. Honeycomb Patricia McCowan How can Nat create harmony when she doesn’t trust her own voice? When Nat, her best friend Jess and singing-star wannabe Harper sing together, their harmo- nies bring down the house. For Nat, the experience sparks a driving new desire to perform. But when the girls form a trio and enter a contest for a chance to play at theTall Grass Music Festival, Nat finds that harmony—musical and otherwise—is hard to maintain. Her bandmates almost never agree, her new boyfriend starts behaving more like a non-boyfriend, and the trio’s famous-musician mentor doesn’t even like the way Nat breathes.

She took acting classes as a kid, was a drama-club nerd in high school and studied acting at the University of Winnipeg and the Banff Centre.

  18. 18. 16 www.orcabook.com The Seven Sequels Broken Arrow John Wilson Nothing says “I love you” like plutonium. Steve thinks he made the right choice turning down a snowy week with his cousins at a cabin in northern Ontario in favor of a relaxing (and perhaps romantic) time under the Spanish sun with his friend, Laia. But when an email from his brother DJ arrives, implicating their grandfather in some shadowy international plots involving nuclear bombs, Steve and Laia immediately put aside all thoughts of a lazy, sun-drenched vacation. In a desperate attempt to find out if Steve’s grandfather was a Cold War-era spy,they crack mysterious codes,confront violent Russian mobsters,dodge spies, unearth a bomb and avoid nudists. But the more they uncover, the more Steve wonders: whose side was Grandpa really on? Born in Edinburgh,Scotland, John Wilson grew up on the Isle of Skye and outside Glasgow without the slightest idea that he would ever write books. After completing a degree in geology at St. Andrews University, he worked in Zimbabwe and Alberta before taking up writing full-time and moving to Lantzville on Vancouver Island in 1991. John is addicted to history and firmly believes that the past must have been just as exciting, confusing and complex to those who lived through it as our world is to us.

He’s been kidnapped from the skating rink at City Hall in Toronto, and now he’s locked in a cold basement room, still in his parka and skates. Where is he? And why do his kidnappers keep asking questions about his dead grandpa and some weird national anthem?

Was Grandpa really a traitor, as some of the evidence suggests? And why was a loaded Walther PPK pistol hidden at the cottage? Determined to prove his grandfather’s innocence, Adam takes the famous James Bond gun and follows the clues to Bermuda,where he encounters danger,evidence of espionage,and an unusual girl named Angel Dahl. Desperate and on the run with Angel, pursued by a deadly operative, Adam races to other exotic locations, unsure if Angel is friend or foe, or if his grandfather was a hero or a villain. Three clues hold the dark secret of David McLean’s past—the letter W, a glass eye with a golden iris, and the haunting words of someone named Mr. Know. Shane Peacock is a biographer, journalist, screenwriter and the author of more than a dozen books for young readers,including The Boy Sherlock Holmes series. His work has won many honors, and his novel, Becoming Holmes, was a finalist for the Governor General’s Award. Because Shane often writes about unusual subjects, his research methods have, at times, been out of the ordinary too; he has learned the arts of tight-rope walking, silent killing, trapeze flying and sumo eating, all in the service of his art. Shane and his wife, journalist Sophie Kneisel, live with their three children on a small farm near Cobourg, Ontario, where he continues to search for and imagine larger-than-life characters. In his spare time he enjoys playing hockey, reading, and sometimes even walking the wire. For more information, visit www.shanepeacock.ca.

Missy heads for work, only to learn that the hardware store is closing and she’s out of a job. Naturally upset, she returns home—and walks in on her husband Dale making out with their next-door neighbor. Shocked, Missy heads to the café in town. Her day turns from bad to worse when, moments later, she finds herself being held at gunpoint—even if it is by a sexy Jude Law lookalike who smells like wood chips and soap. but the robbery goes wrong, and the police show up. Right there, Missy makes a choice. Her son is growing up. Her husband is a beer-bellied cheater in sweatpants. Maybe her sister is right: maybe she does need some adventure in her life. Missy helps the thug escape and eventually agrees to join him on a road trip to New York. Enthralled by her sudden freedom—and uncharacteristic badness—Missy camps out with her renegade outlaw in a tawdry motel. She buys his stories about how he’s really not a criminal, just a guy who’s been dealt a bad hand. but hours later, the guy pulls a gun on yet another cashier— and Missy finally connects the dots. Missy and her husband spend the summer apart. but her dangerous fling with the gunman has helped her see what matters most—and where she needs to make changes. As the summer draws to an end, Missy and Dale are back together, preparing to welcome their son home. There is a good chance they will work things out.
