The Millennium Squad are a detective group consisting of three twelve-year-old boys, Leonne, Dylan, and Theodore, and they strive to make the world a better place. However, even though they are on top of keeping their city safe, Leonne is bored of the monotonous missions they take day in and day out. He wanted more challenging missions and his prayers were answered when Chief of Police Stewarts assigns the Millennium Squad to go on a mission to retrieve the Restrict Amulet that has been stolen. The Millennium Squad is happy with this exciting task, but they weren’t excited about coinvestigating the theft of the Restrict Amulet with Private Detective Thomas Fe’line, who happens to be a cat!

Thomas has heard a great deal about the Millennium Squad and he’s actually happy to work with them even though he can sense them rejecting him. It doesn’t matter though because the Millennium Squad needs Thomas’ intelligence because they’re dealing with powerful witches and warlocks! This is a journey between four of the best detectives in the world as they try to get along while solving the mystery behind the stolen amulet.



The Light Princess (Xist Classics)

by George MacDonald

Now a Musical with Music from Tori Amos!

“One day [the prince] lost sight of his retinue in a great forest. These forests are very useful in delivering princes from their courtiers, like a sieve that keeps back the bran. Then the princes get away to follow their fortunes. In this they have the advantage of the princesses, who are forced to marry before they have had a bit of fun. I wish our princesses got lost in a forest sometimes.” â?? George MacDonald, The Light Princess

When a princess is cursed to lose her “gravity” she loses both her wit and her ability to keep her feet on the ground. This short (43 page) novel makes an enjoyable read for children and adults alike. In this book, a familiar fairy tale (Sleeping Beauty) is twisted into a funny, lyrical and wise story about a young princess who saves the prince.
This Xist Classics edition has been professionally formatted for e-readers with a linked table of contents. This ebook also contains a bonus book club leadership guide and discussion questions. We hope you’ll share this book with your friends, neighbors and colleagues and can’t wait to hear what you have to say about it.

The Dream Keepers

by Linda Keen

Love is the answer. A heartwarming story about family, friendship, diversity, and self-knowledge. 

In the first years of the new millennium, Star and Thatcher O’Day are seven and eight years old when they are forced to leave the only home they have ever known.

Driving cross country from the Deep South to the West Coast with their grandfather, a famous poet they consider strange, sister and brother will also have to accustom themselves before long to an eccentric artist who does not look or act anything like they think a grandmother should. Settling into entirely new surroundings, their joys as well as trials and tribulations, combined with the ebb and flow of memorable relationships, become central to the siblings’ incitement for change.

As each advancing year elicits increasing levels of alarm and acute dangers, their continuing encounters steer them into places and circumstances they never could have imagined.



Sticks, Stones, and Dragon Bones (Dragon Bone Series Book 1)

by Evelyn Ink

A door that leads nowhereâ?¦
a key to open it.
A map of a land that doesn’t exist,
and a monster that does.

Four sisters; a hypochondriac scientist, a mordant writer, and two feisty twins aspiring to be pirates, set off to retrieve their eldest sister who has been kidnapped into an unknown world.

Their adventure involves a grim prophecy from the oracle Sybil, help from a rugged viking named Barnabas, and the ever terrifying presence of Brakkus the dark-hooded villain who is in constant pursuit of them. The four sisters must work together to outwit the creature Brakkus, face their fears, and unravel the clues of an ominous prophecy to find their sister before time runs outâ?¦

“Follow the river of blood and you will find a coffin of leaves… You will find her in the clutches of two great forces seeking power. They both prowl behind curtains of violence, but one can deliver only evil and the other, possible freedom. The one you seek is in the jaws of the deliverers, but you must hurry, for like meat thrown to dogs she will be ripped apart.”
