    The news is that his car went over the cliff into the surf beach, but there is no body.  Belinda, her mother and Kate stay at Amanda's family beach house to be near where the car went over.  

    Belinda thinks that her father maybe got washed up further up the coastline and perhaps could be sick or ill somewhere in the back country.

    The girls discover how unusual their three kittens are. When held, all animal speech can be understood.

    So with the help of the kittens the three girls spend their wet school holidays searching. There is a helpful dog, grouchy possums and a dopey old horse involved before Belinda's father is found at last.

    Bernice Blossom Bolton is nine and a half-years-old, and taking her first trip to New York City. After refusing to go to breakfast, because she is angry at not receiving any gifts on Christmas morning, she decides to leave the hotel and explore the city on her own. During her walk she encounters a number of interesting people, from the phony Santa guy ringing a bell on the corner of Fifth Avenue, to the kindly pretzel vendor, to the not-so-kind taxi driver who almost runs her over as she attempts to cross the street. 

    Eventually, Bernie makes her way to Central Park where she spends the rest of day with a remarkable homeless man named, Ellis Duncan. As evening falls, Ellis Duncan tells Bernie about a long ago Christmas, and a wonderful and unforgettable gift. BERNIE BOLTON'S BIG APPLE CHRISTMAS, attempts to convey the simplest of lessons...that not all gifts are the ones you receive.

    Bernie Bolton is, indeed, a force to be reckoned with as she charges head-first into the 21st century. She is feisty and fun, liberated and opinionated, and definitely ready to take on the world. Today's pre-teen girls will be able to relate to Bernie as she struggles to understand her fast changing world, to deal with the changes in her family, and to come to terms with the changes in herself.

    When Bernie had Mr. Soren in third grade, she thought he was the most amazing teacher in the universe. He played games, did wood shop, and every Friday he had what he called Free Friday, complete with movies and popcorn.

     Well, Bernie has Mr. Soren again for fifth grade and has forgotten all of this now. Mr. Soren, the coolest teacher in the Universe, has now become the worst. Even worst than Miss Boggs... if you can imagine that! 

    Mr. Soren is making the class keep a journal... a diary... a book, of the things that happen in their lives, and Bernie thinks it's a BAD idea.

    Her wonderful fifth grade year, which she waited for all summer, is off to a really revolting start.

    Bernie Bolton was only a few short days from turning ten when disaster struck! 

    As she babysat her stepbrother, Kirby, the worst possible thing happened. Worse even than getting Miss Boggs for fourth grade! 

    As Kirby climbed a tree, and tried to touch the sky from the very highest branch--he fell!

    Afterwards he was in a deep sleep the doctors called "a coma".  

    Bernie tried everything to wake him, from prayers, which she wasn't very good at, to intimidation, which she was, to loud Elvis music and peanut butter. Nothing worked, until Emmy suggested visiting Mr. Ralston. He was the oldest person in the neighborhood.

    His house was old, and cluttered, and kind of creepy... and it smelled like fish, lots of old stinky fish. It was also full of cats... everywhere.  But Mr. Ralston made wonderful cookies, and had a mysterious, secret box, which he opened for the girls after telling them a story from his childhood. A story filled with wonder and a little magic... the kind that might wake Kirby from his long sleep.

    Talented eleven-year-old actor, Brad Simpson, has just finished making movies with some of the most famous actors in the world, but he's more than ready to settle down with a steady role on "The Pioneers", an exciting new TV show.  He and his young castmates are having a great time together.  Brad even gets the chance to play baseball, his favorite game, against the cast of another show.  

    From day one, however, Brad senses something seriously amiss on the set of "Pioneers"--terrifying visions, threatening ghosts, an accident that nearly costs the entire cast their lives.  The director is forced to shut down filming while the kids recuperate, and it begins to look as if the show isn't even going to make it to the small screen--unless Brad and his scared but determined "Pioneers" castmates team up to play a game of baseball against the Los Angeles Pioneers, a ghostly, doomed baseball team made up of failed actors from the late 19th century.  They need an ingenious solution--and Brad is confident he can satisfy both teams and keep their show in production. 

    Will Brad and his castmates solve the mystery of the ghostly field and successfully banish the ghosts from their set?

    BRAIN MAN

    Randy O'Rourke wants the robot he built named Brain to be as "Super Colossal" as those at Future World, an amusement park where robots do all the work. Brain doesn't disappoint him. He does Randy's homework and chores--plus some things he wasn't intended to do. His red heart glows in response to compliments. He blinks when touched. He uses "mind talk" to communicate with Randy. However, some of Brain's unprogrammed actions are less endearing. From minor glitch to major disaster, the robot provokes a series of escalating problems. Although Brain is out of control, Randy can't escape that the robot is almost human…and he loves the big pest. 


    DOUBLE TROUBLE DITTO BOX

When he wants a premium baseball glove like his friend Jake's, he puts his friend's glove in, and--voila!--a duplicate comes out. If Randy and Jake want pizza, he orders one, makes a copy, and they eat two. Randy copies homework, games and even Asthma, Jake's furry mutt. Everything is going great until his little sister wants a playmate. Twozy, as Suzy names her "twin", looks and whines just like Suzy. Mom and Dad are mad at Randy for doubling their trouble, and he has to babysit more girls more often. Two sisters are twice as bad as one! How can he get rid of the new one?
