Roger takes a chance / Graegin, Stephanie
Book buddies.
"Roger the chick almost never gets the chance to do things on his own -- he's always attached by Velcro to his mother, Olive the hen, who prefers a quiet nap to any excitement. The two Book Buddies even come as a pair when they're borrowed from the library, so Roger doesn't go on many solo adventures. One day, a boy named Liam is persuaded by his little sister to borrow Roger and Olive before picking up Grandpa from the airport. While Liam is preoccupied with showing Grandpa how grown-up he is, however, Roger the chick wriggles free, only to be accidentally left behind. Could this be the chance that Roger's been waiting for, or will his airport adventure -- complete with a too-playful dog and a looming top of the escalator -- prove too exciting even for him? If Liam admits his mistake, will he have a chance to show how grown-up he is -- and help Roger get back from the Lost and Found?"--

Frankie D, vegan vampire / Dutra, Sally
Frankie D, vegan vampire.
"The first book in a hilarious early chapter book series, starring a lovable vampire trying to find his place in an unfamiliar world. 'In many ways, fourth-grader Frankie D is a typical "new kid." He's anxious about fitting in at school, hopes he makes friends and that he doesn't forget where the bathroom is. One major thing sets him apart, though: Frankie is a vampire. But he's not your typical vampire, either ... Sure, he's nocturnal by nature, has fangs, superhuman abilities and is immortal. But Frankie's family has decided to leave their vampire life in Transylvania behind. They've gone vegan, and moved to a mid-sized American city for a fresh start. Where Frankie is from, the school day began at midnight and ended at dawn. Now in America, Frankie and his family must adjust their sleep schedule, train to be out in the sun and eat a zero-blood diet. Not only that, he has to navigate school as the new kid and keep his vampire identity secret from other humans. Frankie D, Vegan Vampire is full of deadpan humour, irony and playful twists on the vampire trope, making it a super fun and entertaining read -- but important themes of friendship, family, kindness, dealing with bullies and adapting to life in a new country and culture add depth and heart to the story. The characters are relatable, and readers will identify with the challenges Frankie faces as he navigates the often confusing complications of fourth grade and being a newcomer, taking things one bite at a time."--
