This month's deal is Pirates Don't Change Diapers by Melinda Long (Harcourt, hardcover, USED, now $5.09). This hilarious companion to How I Became a Pirate reveals that minding the nursery can be even more terrifying than walking the plank -- especially if you're a pirate.

Kids' Summer Reading Challenge
Reading Without Walls
Fiction Addiction and Gene Luen Yang, the National Ambassador for Young People's Literature, are issuing a summer reading challenge: Read Without Walls. Adult bookclub members know the joy of falling in love with a book that your club selected that you were absolutely sure you were going to hate. We want kids to learn to take chances with their reading material and broaden their horizons as well. Gene's challenge is for children to do one (or two, or all three!) of three things: 1. Read a book about a diverse character different from yourself; or 2. Read a book about an unfamiliar topic; or 3. Try a book in a different format (thick book, thin book, graphic novel, etc.). In support of this challenge, Fiction Addiction is taking the financial risk out of the equation by offering no-hassle 30-day money-back returns on any book purchased as part of the challenge. Just tell us you're trying the challenge and we'll stamp your receipt.

Something has happened to Serafina. She has awoken into a darkness she does not understand, scarred from a terrible battle, only to find that life at Biltmore Estate has changed in unimaginable ways. Old friends do unthinkable things and enemies seem all around. A mysterious threat moves towards Biltmore, a force without a name, bringing with it violent storms and flooding that stands to uproot everything in its path. Serafina must uncover the truth about what has happened to her and find a way to harness her strange new powers before it's too late. With only days to achieve the impossible, Serafina fights to reclaim herself as the Guardian of Biltmore, friend of Braeden, daughter of her Pa, and heroine of the Blue Ridge Mountains and all the folk and creatures that call it home.

Serafina and the Twisted Staff Serafina and the Twisted Staff by Robert Beatty
Serafina finds herself caught between her two worlds: she's too wild for Biltmore's beautifully dressed ladies and formal customs, and too human to fully join her kin. When a mysterious series of attacks test Serafina's role as Biltmore's protector, she finds herself torn from the side of her best friend and only ally, Braeden Vanderbilt. Heartbroken, she flees. Deep in the forest, Serafina comes face-to-face with the evil infecting Biltmore -- and discovers its reach is far greater than she'd ever imagined. All the humans and creatures of the Blue Ridge Mountains are in terrible danger. For Serafina to defeat this new evil before it engulfs her beloved home, she must search deep inside herself and embrace the destiny that has always awaited her.

The Apprentice Witch The Apprentice Witch by James Nicol
Arianwyn has flunked her witch's assessment: She's doomed. Declared an apprentice and sent to the town of Lull in disgrace, she may never become a real witch -- much to the glee of her arch-rival, Gimma. But remote Lull is not as boring as it seems. Strange things are sighted in the woods, a dangerous infestation of hex creeps throughout the town, and a mysterious magical visitor arrives with his eye on her. With every spirit banished, creature helped, and spell cast, Arianwyn starts to get the hang of being a witch -- even if she's only an apprentice. But the worst still lies ahead. For a sinister darkness has begun to haunt her spells, and there may be much more at stake than just her pride...for Arianwyn and the entire land.
