Hardcover - Great Erroll by Hannah Shaw (Goodreads Author) When something supremely silly is needed for storytime: choose Erroll. Or as Erroll himself might say: “Pick me! Pick me! Pick me!” And then he’d turn a somersault, swing from the drapes, and get peanut butter all over everything. For kids who like high-energy shenanigans, and for grown-ups who’d like to almost prove the point that a neat-and-tidy suburban home may not be the best place for a very wild critter, this fun and funny story of a boy who finds a talking squirrel in his snack package will be just the ticket.

Paperback The Awakening by Kate Chopin She grew daring and reckless. Overestimating her strength. She wanted to swim far out. Where no woman had swum before. The Awakening was particularly controversial upon publication in 1899. Although the novel was never technically banned, it was censored. Chopin's novel was considered immoral not only for its comparatively frank depictions of female sexual desire but also for its depiction of a protagonist who chafed against social norms and established gender roles. The novel opens with the Pontellier family vacationing on Grand Isle at a resort on the Gulf of Mexico managed by Madame Lebrun and her two sons. With the summer vacation over, the Pontelliers return to New Orleans. Edna gradually reassesses her priorities and takes a more active role in her own happiness. Learn More
