The Blood Guard Series: When thirteen-year-old Ronan Truelove’s seemingly ordinary mom snatches him from school, then sets off on a high speed car chase, Ronan is shocked. His quiet, nerdy dad has been kidnapped? And the kidnappers are after him, too?

His mom, he quickly learns, is anything but ordinary. In fact, she’s a member of an ancient order of knights, the Blood Guard, a sword-wielding secret society sworn to protect the Pure—thirty-six noble souls whose safety is crucial if the world as we know it is to survive.

If My Mom Were A Platypus: Mammal Babies and Their Mothers

All mammal mothers feed, protect, and teach their young, though these tasks often challenge their own needs for survival. A mammal baby’s journey to maturity varies dramatically, whether it is a bear or a bat, a hippopotamus or a human. With beautiful illustrations and inventive text, this fascinating introduction to the world of mammals reveals how fourteen mammal babies travel the path from helpless infants to self-sufficient adults. Ages 8-12. Aligns with the Common Core. NSTA Recommends. “As engaging visually as it is verbally!”-Carnegie Academy for Science education
