You'd have to have, like, a lentil for a soul to hate wiener dogs. ~Zuzana from The Daughter of Smoke & Bones by Laini Taylor

Discover the series boys and girls around the world love to read! The Horrid Henry phenomenon is sweeping the U.S., and parents and teachers are taking notice:
”A loveable bad boy.“ —People
“Kids will love reading the laugh-out-loud funny stories about someone whose behavior is even worse than their own.” —School Library Journal
“Kids may laugh so hard they’ll snort milk out through their noses!”– Chicago Parent
“Will engage even the most reluctant readers.” – Publisher’s Weekly
HORRID HENRY’S MONSTER MOVIE by Francesca Simon with illustrations from Tony Ross  is perfect for the young schemer who is always off plotting his next rise of terror! This fall, Horrid Henry makes his own scary movie, “The Undead Demon Monster Who Would Not Die”, persuades Peter to hand over his stash of Grump Cards and spends a weekend at Aunt Ruby's where he has to share a bedroom with his two arch-enemies, Stuck-Up Steve and Bossy Bill. Then when Henry's school decides to have a mini-Olympics, he sets up his own Holympic games, with medals for potato chip-eating, TV watching, and Burping to the Beat.

Beginning readers will adore Henry and his antics in four new tales in HORRID HENRY AND THE ZOMBIE VAMPIRE by Francesca Simon and illustrated by Tony Ross. He tricks Perfect Peter into handing over all his money; terrorizes his classmates at a school sleepover in the museum; steals one of Perfect Peter’s stories; and meets the Nudie Foodie who comes to the school and takes away burgers or french fries! Henry isn’t going to put up with that without a fight!

Sourcebooks is ready to introduce the spine-tingling graphic thriller, PICTURE THE DEAD by Adele Griffin and Lisa Brown, a Civil War tale with a surprising supernatural twist. Jennie Lovell's twin brother, Toby, and her fiancé, Will, have been killed in the Civil War, the latter under mysterious circumstances. Will's brother returns home a battered, bitter young man with secrets that Jennie is determined to uncover. She is mesmerized by a photographer who claims to be able to capture images from the spirit world, and she uses this relationship to explore the signs she believes Will is sending her, warnings that she must decipher carefully. Jennie’s life is in danger, and the secrets she’s uncovering could be her undoing. Replete with daguerreotypes, family portraits, and spirit photographs, the unique visuals originated from real Civil War daguerreotypes that were transformed into eerie mementos for Jennie’s scrapbook. Jon Scieszka, bestselling author and Caldecott Honor winner, sums it up perfectly: “How did you miss this when it first came out? How did I miss this when it first came out? A perfectly haunting combination of art and history-based story. In paperback. So you can read it now.” 

“Jeff Strand is the funniest writer in the game, and A BAD DAY FOR VOODOO is wicked, wicked fun. Dark, devious and delicious!” –Jonathan Mabbery, New York Times bestselling author of Rot & Ruin
“Jeff Strand is hilariously funny and truly deranged! Careful –it might be contagious!” –Christopher Golden, author of When Rose Wakes
“It’s at least better than that one book you read that one time that totally sucked and you were all like ‘How did this ever get published?’ and you shoved it into the garbage disposal and let out a primal roar as the metal blades ground it up.” –Jeff Strand
Spook up your October with comedy- horror author Jeff Strand’s A Bad Day for Voodoo. It will have readers laughing just as much as they squirm with Tyler Churchill’s most terrifying day ever. What begins as an F on his history final quickly turns into a day of exploding legs, stolen voodoo dolls, deadly car thieves, parents who demand that they come home “right this minute” and countless other obstacles! There are some days you just want to crawl into bed and forget the rest of the world. For Tyler, that day was today.
