The Blobfish Book

By Jessica Olien

This is a clever informational picture book about the Blobfish also known as the ugliest fish in the ocean. The book is a unique mix of fiction and non-fiction creating an educational and entertaining story. For example, you will learn that Giant Spider Crabs are the size of a small car and live to be 100 years old!

Spontaneous

By Aaron Starmer

Some books don’t need a complicated premise to be excellent, and Spontaneous by Aaron Starmer may be straight-forward, but it’s also a hilarious, compelling story about a small town where teens begin exploding…well…spontaneously. Dive into the absurd mystery; why are people exploding in a small New Jersey town? If you pick it up to find out, be ready, Spontaneous is hard to put down.
