Piggy Story

“‘Tag you’re it!’ that used to be all that was needed for an afternoon of adventure and fun.Remember those times? Today it’s hi-tech gadgets, lessons, and tutors before dinner.Where are the wonder and imagination in children today? It’s trapped in a television show,video game or movie of the week. That’s why The Piggy Story is committed to creating products designed to capture young imaginations. Before each product is crafted we ask, “What will captivate a child?” An array of designs from Dragons and Princesses to Piggy Fairies and Piggy Pirates keeps minds engaged to a story of their own. Simple, fun and affordable – crayons, doodle pad, a tote with a fun design, are all the ingredients to make their fantasies come to life. The greatest inventions and technologies surfaced from the wildest imaginations, playing around and just being curious. Let’s give back the wonder and imagination to our children today and watch what they will create for tomorrow.

The Book Table carries The Piggy Story products. Below is a sneak peak at some of them:

The Big, Friendly Giant

The BFG is no ordinary bone-crunching giant. He is far too nice and jumbly. It’s lucky for Sophie that he is. Had she been carried off in the middle of the night by the Bloodbottler, or any of the other giants rather than the BFG she would have soon become breakfast. When Sophie hears that the giants are flush-bunking off to England to swollomp a few nice little chiddlers, she decides she must stop them once and for all. And the BFG is going to help her!

Come get your copy of the BFG today and read it in time before the movie comes out in just two weeks!

Most Anticipated YA Book Releases of 2014

A new year means one great thing to book lovers: new releases! Whilst browsing catalogs and book-lover’s blogs, I compiled a list of just a few of the most anticipated YA novels of 2014. Be sure to mark your calendars!

Hollow City: The Second Novel of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs

12396528Came out: January 14,2014

Synopsis: In 1940 after the first book ends, Jacob and his new Welsh island friends flee to London, the Peculiar capital of the world. Caul, a dangerous madman, is Miss Peregrine’s brother, and can steal Peculiar abilities for himself. The Peculiars must fight for survival, again.

Evertrue by Brodi Ashton

Due out: January 21,2014

13626692Synopsis: Now that Nikki has rescued Jack, all she wants is to be with him and graduate high school. But Cole tricked Nikki into feeding off him, and she’s begun the process of turning into an Everliving herself… which means she must feed on a Forfeit soon — or die.

Terrified for her survival, Nikki and Jack begin a desperate attempt to reverse the process using any means possible. Even Cole, who they expected to fight them at every turn, has become an unlikely ally — but how long can it last? Nikki needs to feed on Cole to survive, Cole needs Nikki to gain the throne in the Everneath, Jack needs Nikki because she is everything to him — and together, they must travel back to the Underworld to undo Nikki’s fate and make her mortal once more. But Cole isn’t the only one with plans for Nikki: the Queen has not forgotten Nikki’s treachery, and she wants her destroyed for good. Will Nikki be forced to spend eternity in the Underworld, or does she have what it takes to bring down the Everneath once and for all?

Panic by Lauren Oliver

Due out: March 4, 2014

17565845Synopsis: Panic began as so many things do in Carp, a dead-end town of 12,000 people in the middle of nowhere: because it was summer, and there was nothing else to do.

Heather never thought she would compete in Panic, a legendary game played by graduating seniors, where the stakes are high and the payoff is even higher. She’d never thought of herself as fearless, the kind of person who would fight to stand out. But when she finds something, and someone, to fight for, she will discover that she is braver than she ever thought.

Dodge has never been afraid of Panic. His secret will fuel him, and get him all the way through the game, he’s sure of it. But what he doesn’t know is that he’s not the only one with a secret. Everyone has something to play for.

For Heather and Dodge, the game will bring new alliances, unexpected revelations, and the possibility of first love for each of them—and the knowledge that sometimes the very things we fear are those we need the most.

City of Heavenly Fire by Cassandra Clare

Due out: May 27,2014

Synopsis:8755785

ΕRCHOMAI, SEBASTIAN HAD SAID.

Darkness returns to the Shadowhunter world. As their society falls apart around them, Clary, Jace, Simon and their friends must band together to fight the greatest evil the Nephilim have ever faced: Clary’s own brother. Nothing in the world can defeat him — must they journey to another world to find the chance? Lives will be lost, love sacrificed, and the whole world changed in the sixth and last installment of the Mortal Instruments series
