Witches Protection Program

Ancient magic and modern mischief collide in Witches Protection Program.

When a 12-year-old witch crashes her broom, she is swept up in a world of trouble.

Salina Peregrine lives on a magically hidden island in the Labrador Sea. Like everyone else in her ancient community, she’s been taught the outside world is full of monsters. As food sources dwindle, she worries. How will they survive if they can’t leave to find food?

The answer washes ashore inside a plastic bottle. A note from a faraway girl reveals a world of friendship, food, and fun. Salina is thrilled! But before she can spread the good news, Chancellor Kull rips the bottle from her hands. The wicked ruler would rather starve her island than open its doors to the modern world. She destroys the note and pursues Salina to make her forget the truth.WPPvibe1

Salina escapes to the wild open sea, where she is rescued by the Witches Protection Program. Novice agents flying a jellyfish-powered windmill give Salina a hilariously misguided makeover. They drop her off at a suburban American middle school and tell her to act like an ordinary seventh grader. Salina quickly discovers it’s not easy to hide her identity without magic. When classmates become suspicious, she panics. Her lies destroy new friendships and her bungled spells cause chaos in the classroom. She runs away. Now, Salina is an outcast in both worlds.

With help from an enchanted book, a cranky hamster, a spooky teacher, and a pocketful of magical pink beans, Salina discovers that to save herself she must first save her island from the wicked Chancellor. To succeed, she’ll have to face old fears, mend new friendships, and find a way to bridge both worlds.

The Gravity of Daisy Gray

In Depression-era Manhattan, 12-year-old Daisy Gray lives secretly inside a copper dome on the roof of a grand hotel, where she discovers she has a magical power to control the bees that share her shelter. She survives on honey and the hope of reuniting with her brother, who was torn from her arms at an orphan train depot two years earlier.bee-705412_1280

When her bees mysteriously stop making honey, a starving Daisy enters the lives of three hotel residents—a novelist’s rebellious daughter, an ironhanded pastry chef, and an eccentric scientist embittered by illness. She must figure out who can be trusted with her magical secret if she wants to rescue her bees from destructive forces and seize her one chance to reunite with her brother.

A silver compass, a slice of cake with Einstein under the stars, a wild ride on an underground train, and sweet chunks of honeycomb are treasured clues in this enchanting adventure.

Within the heart of every pet is a heroic mythical beast. One lucky girl discovers what happens when that beast is unleashed.

With her pug puppy by her side, Hana spends the summer before sixth grade helping her grandparents to bake homemade pet treats for customers in Stillwater, Texas. Business takes off when a private pet shelter puts in a huge order. But there’s a catch. The treats must contain a secret ingredient provided by the shelter’s mysterious new owner, Claudia Creech.

When Hana accidentally feeds one of the secret ingredient treats to her pug, his inner mythical beast is magically unleashed. In addition to his familiar stubby nose, roly-poly belly, and twisty tail, he sprouts a magnificent set of shimmering wings. Hana’s pug becomes a Pugasus!

Hana gathers friends Paul and Bea to help rescue her winged buddy. While snooping around, they find a notebook directing them to a hidden farm where mythical pets called Mythlets roam free. Using the notebook as a field guide, the friends encounter unique and adorable Mythlets until at last, they find Pugasus.

But the Pegasus Pug is on a mission of his own. He leads the children to Claudia Creech, who lies injured. Creech’s plan to give pets the power to rescue themselves has gone awry. A cranky chicken has gobbled a whole box of magical treats and turned into a mythical monster–a Kraken Chicken!

With help from Pugasus, the three friends must rescue the Mythlets before the Kraken Chicken unleashes its appetite on the farm.

Pugasus is a charming adventure about finding friendship in unexpected places and discovering that even the most unlikely characters can be heroes.
