Lost in the Pacific vividly retells this incredible true story for a young audience and launches an exciting new narrative nonfiction series: Lost. Featuring black and white photographs, maps, and diagrams that bring each story to life, Lost is the perfect nonfiction companion series for older fans of I Survived and other adventure stories.

The Boys Who Challenged Hitler
by Phillip Hoose
Publication Date: 2015-05-12
At the outset of World War II, Denmark did not resist German occupation. Deeply ashamed of his nation's leaders, fifteen-year-old Knud Pedersen resolved with his brother and a handful of schoolmates to take action against the Nazis if the adults would not. Naming their secret club after the fiery British leader, the young patriots in the Churchill Club committed countless acts of sabotage, infuriating the Germans, who eventually had the boys tracked down and arrested. But their efforts were not in vain: the boys' exploits and eventual imprisonment helped spark a full-blown Danish resistance. Interweaving his own narrative with the recollections of Knud himself, here is Phillip Hoose's inspiring story of these young war heroes. This thoroughly-researched and documented book can be worked into multiple aspects of the common core curriculum.
Last Man Out
by Mike Lupica
Publication Date: 2016-09-13
When the Brighton Bears suit up on game day, 12-year-old Tommy Gallagher is the toughest kid on the football field. And the bravest. After all, his father Patrick is a Boston firefighter–one of Boston’s bravest. Tommy’s dad taught him everything he knows about football–and life.
Yet even Tommy isn’t strong enough for what happens when the sirens ring and, for the first time, they’re racing away from the fire. ”First man in; last man out” had always been his dad’s motto . . . yet he never said anything about leaving in an ambulance. What kind of risk had his dad taken? Now Tommy’s biggest battle has nothing to do with football. And the kid who always had such respect for risk on the gridiron finds himself drawn to it off the field.
Set in New England, home of the Patriots’ football dynasty, Mike Lupica shows off his trademark knack for spinning a tale that’s equal parts sports action and heart. Last Man Out is a thoughtful tribute to the bravery of firefighters and the need we all have to live up to the level of our heroes.

Published in 50 countries with over 22 million copies sold, The Golden Compass, The Subtle Knife, and The Amber Spyglass are renowned for their engrossing storytelling and epic scope. These modern classics are must-reads for every book lover. Praise for The Golden Compass Graphic Novel, vol. 2: "Dreamy watercolors organized into neatly ordered panels lend themselves well to the fantastical setting, creating a sense of sweeping cinematic scope. Pullman's original magnum opus is heady and dense, and it may prove challenging for some; this adaptation, with its visual accessibility, can help those struggling with the novel's complexity achieve an understanding without watering down the intricacies."--Kirkus Reviews Praise for The Golden Compass Graphic Novel, vol. 1: "The story's signature fantasies--the d#65533;mons, the armored mercenary polar bears, and the alethiometer--are realized with compelling force (and, in the case of the d#65533;mons, humor). [This] retelling will bring Pullman's work new fans and give previous readers new pleasure." --Publishers Weekly, Starred "Whether this is a reader's first experience with the tale or they are already familiar with the story, they should be delighted by this rendition." --School Library Journal "The small and detailed but very clear panels are full of expressive faces, discernible action, and moody shadowing. Readers familiar with Pullman's novel will appreciate this artistic adaptation, as will readers who simply prefer graphic novels to prose." --Booklist
