Awww kittens are soooo cute! They are fluffy and adorable and sweet and look so cute in their hardhats! Must post to social media! Never mind that these kittens are carpenters, plumbers and electricians. They can build! They light things up! They can plumb the plumbing! Never mind how cute they are... just take them seriously and you will see what amazing things they can do. Yet, of course, the humans cannot take them seriously (after all, do you take your cat seriously when they “must get red dot”?) On top of everything else, the adorable illustrations help keep the theme and humor humming along. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette

Trying to get groovy points can be hard when you rather play D&D then get Gloria Vanderbilt jeans. As Sunny tries to learn the rules to survive middle school, we see one spunky gal who knows who she is: a human fighter who always remembers to look up for the giant spiders! It just takes a couple rolls of the die to get her there. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette

Snapdragon (in the tradition of the women in her family being named after their mother’s favorite flower) is a feisty, independent girl who is not like other girls. With her family and new friends behind her, Snap learns that who you are, is already there, you just need to find the outlet. Humor, fantasy and realism wrap up these diverse characters in a fun ages 10 to 14 graphic novel. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette

This not your parents Goldilocks story. It has a Halloween/scary twist with the beloved items still all there: too hot alpha-bat stew; hard beds, soft chairs and one sleepy ghoul. But this time, things do not end as you think they will. Our Family of Monsters will have you recalling The Munsters with their multi-monster family (one Frankenstein Dad, one Mummy Mommy, one little ankle-biter baby and one lonely little Zombie Girl). ~ Reviewed by Jeanette

But not to worry, she has sent out an ad to find an assistant who, with the help of magic, can help her. Magic transforms not only Lucy’s life, but Grace's and a dog named Rex, too. Perfect for anyone who loves writing, dogs, pickles, humor, or magic! ~ Reviewed by Jeanette
