When You're Not Ready for Harry Potter
After accidentally killing a dragon, Wiglaf hopes his friends at Dragon Slayers' Academy will be able to help him prove himself a hero when he faces that dragon's mother, Seetha, the Beast from the East.
Jack and Annie are in deep trouble when the Magic Tree House whisks them back to the days of deserted islands, secret maps, hidden gold — and ruthless pirates. Will Jack and Annie discover a buried treasure? Or will they walk the plank?
Tommy and Annika have always wished someone would come to live in the ramshackle house next door, and one day, someone does: Pippi Longstocking, an irrepressible nine-year-old girl with a unique way of doing things. Soon the three are inseparable friends.
Monsters have never been this much fun!
Alexander and his new friend, Rip, try to learn more about the monster-filled notebook. They follow clues left by strange worms called night crawlers. It turns out new monsters are in town; giant fish monsters called tunnel fish and even a fish-kabob monster!
