Fresh Ink
The British are invading twice on our list and Larry Yoder wants you to know that one is his favorite! Plus, a Bookies' visitor returns and a NBA star debuts! 

We know that summer has just begun, but this book is too fun to leave until the end of the break. Two young detectives have to save their summer and their town from mysterious men, magical cameras, and wondrous creatures.     
How did Mercy become the pride and joy of Mr. & Mrs. Watson? Well, it's time to find out! Our favorite pig was once, somehow, even cuter when she was little and now you can read the origin story of our little Mercy!  
Alex Willan       
If it's got a sloth inside, you know we're reading the book! Ollie is our new favorite sloth and Jasper is his impatient friend and fox. Will they make it to the pool on time? Are you a Jasper or an Ollie? That's the question you'll be asking as you read this really fun picture book.  
Aru Shah and the Song of Death (Pandava Book #2)  
Another volume in the hit Rick Riordan Presents series, Pandava, is out now! Aru is running out of time to find a magical item or risk being kicked out of the Otherworld. Make sure you pick up the first in this series based on Indian myths and magic, ARU SHAH AND THE END OF TIME, before reading this one!  
You may have seen this book on display in multiple places in our store (including our celebration of the Moon Landing anniversary and Father's Day display), because we love it that much. This is a behind-the-scenes look at what it took to make Apollo 11 a success, and it is riveting!    
Stay Sexy & Don't Get Murdered 
There have been few podcasts that have been as big of hits as MY FAVORITE MURDER. Now, the ladies behind the weekly obsession have their own book. This book is all about the fears the hosts have and what they have to do in life to defeat them without compromising what's really important.
