Robin Preiss Glasser signs FANCY NANCY: Fanciest Doll in the Universe

Description


Fancy Nancy is back in New York Times bestselling team Jane O'Connor and Robin Preiss Glasser's picture book Fancy Nancy: Fanciest Doll in the Universe, about the love little girls feel for their favorite dolls—and their favorite sisters!

Fancy Nancy's sister, JoJo, can really be a pest sometimes . . . like when she put Easter-egg dye in the kiddie pool and dunked Frenchy in it! But this time she's done something really bad, and Nancy is livid—that's fancy for tres angry and upset. JoJo drew a tattoo on Nancy's precious doll, Marabelle Lavinia Chandelier! Even worse, it's in permanent marker. That means it will never come out! When Mom suggests a fancy doll party to make Nancy feel better, Nancy is excited to accept. But what if the doll drama isn't over?

Fans of Fancy Nancy and fancy parties alike will delight in this story of how younger siblings can get on your nerves sometimes, but it always works out in the end. As always, the central theme of all the Fancy Nancy books shines through, showing how Nancy empowers girls with knowledge through her fascination with do-it-yourself fun!

Cory Doctorow signs HOMELAND

In Cory Doctorow’s wildly successful Little Brother, young Marcus Yallow was arbitrarily detained and brutalized by the government in the wake of a terrorist attack on San Francisco—an experience that led him to become a leader of the whole movement of technologically clued-in teenagers, fighting back against the tyrannical security state.

A few years later, California's economy collapses, but Marcus’s hacktivist past lands him a job as webmaster for a crusading politician who promises reform. Soon his onetime girlfriend Masha emerges from the political underground to gift him with a thumbdrive containing a Wikileaks-style cable-dump of hard evidence of corporate and governmental perfidy. It’s incendiary stuff—and if Masha goes missing, Marcus is supposed to release it to the world. Then Marcus sees Masha being kidnapped by the same government agents who detained and tortured Marcus years earlier.

Marcus can leak the archive Masha gave him—but he can’t admit to being the leaker, because that will cost his employer the election. He’s surrounded by friends who remember what he did a few years ago and regard him as a hacker hero. He can’t even attend a demonstration without being dragged onstage and handed a mike. He’s not at all sure that just dumping the archive onto the Internet, before he’s gone through its millions of words, is the right thing to do.

Meanwhile, people are beginning to shadow him, people who look like they’re used to inflicting pain until they get the answers they want.

Fast-moving, passionate, and as current as next week, Homeland is every bit the equal of Little Brother—a paean to activism, to courage, to the drive to make the world a better place.

Marissa Meyer signs SCARLET

When I first picked up Cinder by Marissa Meyer, I expected to read a retelling of one of my favorite fairy tales, Cinderella. I assumed that the story would have some little twist on it to make it feel new again, but generally follow the normal plot. What greeted me was a completely new story with well-rounded characters, mystery and intrigue. I became so enamored with this book I could not put it down. I was obsessed on how this story could possibly end, all the while forgetting I knew the story of Cinderella. Cinder is a futuristic retelling of Cinderella, with almost a steam punk feel to it. Cinder has all the shimmering beauty we all expect to find in todays' world of "Disneyfied" fairy tales, but also the gritty and dark parts that relate this story back to its origins with the Grimm Brothers, all the while having a tone that is all Marissa Meyer. When I finished with Cinder I would have willingly traded almost anything I own to get my hands on the next book, Scarlet.

I am not a big fan of the story "Little Red Riding Hood" mostly because I am petrified of wolves but also because I feel that Red is too gullible and unwitting to make a proper story heroine. So when I started Scarlet, the second book in the Lunar Chronicles Quartet, I had some trepidation. Well, I had nothing to worry about...the little red riding hood in Scarlet is a Red that the Katniss Everdeen generation can get behind. A heroine with drive, courage, and brains who dives into her adventure with Cinder right by her side. Not to mention by the end of this book I was in love with the Big Bad Wolf.

Androids, cyborgs and all of the fairy tale characters you know and love. Oh my! Meet Marissa Meyer, author of the Lunar Chronicles Quartet and a New York Times-bestselling author. She will be coming to sign at Square Books, Jr. on February 14, 2013. I can't think of a better person to spend Valentines Day with than the person who makes some of the books I love best. JB
