IVY by Katherine Coville
Ivy’s grandmother is a healer—to mostly four-legged patients of the forest. Although the woodland creatures love her, the residents of Broomsweep grumble about Grandmother’s unkempt garden. When a kingdom-wide contest is announced to proclaim the tidiest town in the land, the people of Broomsweep are determined to win. That is, if they can get Ivy’s grandmother to clean up her ways. Ivy is determined to lend a hand, but the task proves more challenging when a series of unexpected refugees descends on Grandmother’s cottage. Before the week is over, an injured griffin, a dragon with a cold, and a tiny flock of temperamental pixies will cause a most untidy uproar in Broomsweep . . . and brighten Ivy’s days in ways she never could have dreamed.
Narrated by the Carmen Viviano Crafts and the Full Cast Family

SIXTH GRADE ALIEN: Missing – One Brain by Bruce Coville
Purple and perplexed, Pleskit Meenom needs advice on how to deal with the challenges of his new life on Earth. Normally he would ask his best friend, Tim Tompkins, but the two boys have been tricked into a feud. So instead he turns to his Grandfatherly One – or, at least, the brain of that wise old man, which is all the family has left of him. But perhaps the Grandfatherly One is not as wise as they all would like to believe, since he convinces Pleskit to take him to school in the portable Brain Transport Device. And that’s when things really start to go wrong . . . The recording was dubbed “rollicking!” by AudioFile Magazine, which said the narration by William Dufris’ “brings just the right amount of grade-school enthusiasm . . . his youthful voice is well suited to the age of the main characters as he captures the emotional ups-and-downs of an 11-year-old’s life.”
