Danny's Doodles: The Squirting Donuts
Danny Cohen and his braniac sidekick Calvin Waffle are back with a brand new experiment!

Something is amiss in Danny and Calvin’s fourth-grade class when their teacher, a loud, unbending enforcer of a long list of classroom rules, suddenly becomes a quiet understanding woman. Danny and Calvin decide the only way to find out what’s really going on is to spy on their personality-switching teacher. But spying soon leads to a greater mystery-filled with dog chasing, jelly-injected donuts, peanut-butter-induced experiments, riddle mania, and more!

The Cure for Dreaming
Olivia is a headstrong girl—a suffragist—in an age that prefers its girls to be docile. Concerned, her father convinces a stage mesmerist to try to hypnotize the rebellion out of her. But the hypnotist, an intriguing young man named Henri, gives her a terrible gift instead: she’s able to see people’s true natures, manifesting as visions of darkness and goodness, while also unable to speak her true thoughts out loud. These supernatural challenges only make Olivia more determined to speak her mind, and so she’s drawn into a dangerous relationship with the hypnotist and his mysterious motives.
