New Children’s Chapter Book Releases – week of 8/26/14

The fall books have started to arrive on the shelves in BookKids! We are getting so many new and great books, that it’s hard to keep up. It’s also very exciting.

So starting with this week, we will be sharing that excitement and rounding up all the new kids books that hit our shelves during the fall publishing rush. As always, we’ll continue to post pictures of new releases on the store’s Instagram. Head over to our Teen Press Corps blog for the fall teen releases.

Authors with new books out today, or in the upcoming weeks, include but are definitely not limited to, Tomie dePaola, Dav Pilkey, Jacqueline Woodson, Holly Black & Cassandra Clare, Herve Tullet, and Kate DiCamillo. Fall is also bringing new posthumous books from classic authors Richard Scarry and Dr. Seuss. And there are even a few celebrities making their children’s book debut such as Keith Richards (yes, THAT Keith Richards), Jason Segal, and B.J. Novak (meet him at the store!). There are so many new books this fall, that there will be something for every reader.

We recapped this week’s new picture books yesterday. As promised, here is a round-up of this week’s new chapter books.

leroy ninker 2
Leroy Ninker Saddles Up by Kate DiCamillo is a really cute and perfect first chapter book based on a character from the popular Mercy Watson series. I love Leroy and his trusty Maybelline. This is a good slight step up for readers who also liked the rootin’-tootin’ good times in Cowgirl Kate & Cocoa.” – Kathleen

conseulo - cartwheeling in thunderstorms
Cartwheeling in Thunderstorms by Katherine Rundell
“Growing up on an African farm, Wilhelmina is used to being wild and free and in charge. When she’s sent to a London boarding school, she has to confront the vulnerable side of herself. She’s a fantastic character who is so easy to identify with. I really like this book.” – Conseulo

fourteenth goldfish 2
The Fourteenth Goldfish by Jennifer L. Holm is a quirky, humorous story about Ellie and how she has to deal with a lot of changes, the least of which is her scientist grandpa figuring out the secret to eternal youth. A fun, sweet book.” – Ellen
