New to the Junior Easy collection is The Narwhal and Jelly Series by Ben Clanton. Amazon’s description reads “Narwhal is a happy-go-lucky narwhal. Jelly is a no-nonsense jellyfish. The two might not have a lot in common, but they do they love waffles, parties and adventures. Join Narwhal and Jelly as they discover the whole wide ocean together. Ben Clanton showcases the joys of friendship, the benefits of working together and the power of imagination in the delightful Narwhal and Jelly Series.”
New in Junior Fiction is the Millie Maven Series by Ted Dekker. The description for book one reads “Millie Maven, a fearful orphan girl who lives with her strict, evil aunt is trapped in a life of cruel punishment without any friends. So on the night of her twelfth birthday, when old Aggie of the woods invites her to take a journey that can change her life forever, Millie knows she has to go. Unsure but desperate, Millie embarks on a great adventure that takes her to the distant, mysterious world of FIGS, the FarPointe Institute for Gifted Students, where she might discover her true value through gifts that defy belief. But to do so, she will have to face great challenge, beginning with the realization that she appears to be the least among all of the students. Can she see who she really is before time is up? Can she find the truth before the lies of unworthiness overwhelm her again? And what will she have to risk along the way?”
