Finding Dory: The Deluxe Junior Novelization

Remember Dory? She’s a quirky blue tang who has a way of solving problems that’s all her own. With her short-term memory loss, recalling even the simplest things has always been nearly impossible… but one day, memories of her parents begin to surface. Dory heads out on an adventure to find them that takes her across the ocean and into the depths of her past. Finding Dory: The Deluxe Junior Novelization dives into the mystery of where Dory came from and celebrates the unique power of family.

Dory’s Story

Dory does not have a good memory. Can she remember how to get home?

This reading with help book uses basic vocabulary, short sentences, and simple stories for children who recognize familiar words and sound out new words with help.

Pillow Pets

We have both the Nemo and Dory pillow pets here in our Toy department!

LDS Best Buy: God So Loved the World

Mary Ann is our amazing LDS Department Manager. She will go out of her way to help a customer, and she has a passion for what she does. Her note in the April email about the Best Buy she picked for this month was so nice that we had to share it with you all here:

"God So Loved the World" by Eric D. Huntsman. April price is $15.00.

Dear Friends,

Each month at The Book Table we pick one book from each department to be our Best Buy.  I wanted to take a moment and tell you about my choice:
.
God So Loved the World by Eric D. Huntsman is an amazing book centering on the final week of the Savior’s life.  Dr. Huntsman’s knowledge of ancient Near Eastern culture is blended perfectly with scripture, paintings, maps, photographs, hymns and tradition to make this an incredible addition to a family discussion of the meaning of Easter.  I’m excited to give this to my children this year.  God So Loved the World will be 40% off the list price–in my opinion it is a must buy book.
.
While you are in the store, check out Jeffrey R. Holland’s new book Created for Greater Things as well.  With the pithy quotes of Brother Holland combined with stunning photographs, it will make a great gift for Mother’s Day, Father’s Day or any other day.
.
These two books definitely top my list of recommendations for this month.  Come in and visit us and  see for yourself.
.
 
Have a wonderful Spring!

They’re Coming!!!

HUGE book signing April 22

@ Mt. Logan Middle School

Come meet authors Brandon Mull, Shannon Hale, Ally Condie, James Dashner, & Jessica Day George.

Friday, April 22 @ 6pm

The authors will be speaking first, and a book signing will follow.

This is HUGE! It was originally planned at the Logan City Library and the planners had to move it to Mt. Logan Middle School because of the amazing response. Be sure to arrive early. Don’t worry if you don’t have your own copy- we will be selling books there.

Here is just a little bit about these talented authors. Click on their names to go to their website/blog. Most of them still say that the book signing is at the Logan Library, but it’s actually now at Mt. Logan Middle School.

Brandon Mull

Brandon Mull is the author of Fablehaven, a series of books about the fascinating world of two siblings and their adventures on a magical reserve. His latest book, Beyonders: A World Without Heroes, is the first of another great series we are proud to sell at the BookTable.

She co-wrote the hit graphic novel Rapunzel’s Revenge and its sequel with husband Dean Hale. They live with their four small children near Salt Lake City, Utah.


James Dashner

Author of the 13th Reality Series and the Maze Runner

About his latest addition to the 13th Reality Series: The Blade of Shattered Hope: Things have changed for Atticus Higginbottom. After the near catastrophe in the Fourth Reality, Tick’s being homeschooled in the fields of science, trying to master the mysterious Chi’karda. But just as he begins to make progress, Mistress Jane reappears, now hideously scarred and much more powerful.

Ally Condie

From her blog: I’m Ally Condie, author of the MATCHED trilogy. MATCHED was released in November 2010, its sequel, CROSSED, will be released on November 1, 2011, and the third book will be released in November 2012. In my former life, I was a high school English teacher (and I still keep my license current, just in case!). In my current life, I write, read, run, and hang out with my three boys. I post on Tuesdays and Thursdays (and other days if the mood strikes me) and I’m on Twitter (@allycondie).

Jessica Day George

Author of Princess of the Midnight Ball and Dragonskin Slippers

As her website declares, for Jessica “It’s all about the books.” After going through an assortment of jobs that have taken her across the United States (One of which was at a wedding invitation activity- I’ll bet she has some great stories from that.), she is now the author of seven published novels. She has a way cute blog that we linked to on her name (click on any of the authors’ names to see their website).

Rhymes and Doodles from a Wind-Up Toy

I Am Woman; Hear Me Snore
by Martha Sears West
.
I was wondering how I could douse
The snoring that came from my spouse.
The kids never slept,
Except when we kept
The doors closed all over the house.
.
So I thought I should stay up and try
To watch him all night, as a spy.
And when they reported,
“Last night no one snorted!”
I knew that the culprit was I.

The word “poetry” doesn’t have to bring the image of dusty old volumes written by long-dead Englishmen who said “thy” in every sentence to mind. Local author and poet Martha Sears West is a good example of fresh new rhymes you can share with your family as you celebrate National Poetry Month.

Her poems are fresh, fun, and simple, bringing childhood favorites like Shel Silverstein to mind. Her book, Rhymes and Doodles from a Wind-Up Toy, includes rhymes that are geared mainly for children but have a reminder of the innocence of youth, guaranteed to bring a smile to the face of anyone who reads them ages 2 to 92. It also doubles as a coloring book. ForeWord Clarion Reviews gave it five stars out of five.
