About Underdog City:

Mortimer Bray is not okay.

It seems like everything in his life is changing for the worse. After his own much-loved dog dies, he can’t bring himself to carry on with his dog-walking business; there’s a strange new girl who’s moved into the house next door; and suddenly there’s a buzzing feeling of anxiety in his head and heart when he’s faced with something new.

His neighborhood, Townsend Heights, used to feel like the most comfortable place in the world. But lately, it seems like everyone is arguing, and there’s uncertainty around every corner.

The neighborhood’s only vacant lot is somehow behind it all, Mortimer is sure of that much. If he can unearth the lot’s secret history, he just might stop the Heights from unraveling completely.

Mortimer can’t save Townsend Heights on his own. But when it comes to community, you’re never truly on your own“”not as long as you’re willing to learn from the past, in order to do better in the future.

About All Aboard, Georgia:

Rosalind Bunn and her daughter, Maggie Bunn, collaborate with talented illustrator Keller Pyle for a ride across the state of Georgia. Ready for adventure, a young boy hops aboard a special train for a memorable journey visiting the state’s historic and visual treasures in a book suited for bedtime explorations and classroom education.

About the Author:

Chris Negron grew up outside Buffalo, New York, where he spent a huge chunk of his childhood collecting comic books and loving sports. But it was the hours of playing Dungeons and Dragons in friends’ basements that first gave him the dream of one day writing his own stories. That dream kept him company through college at Yale University and years of programming computers for big companies. Dan Unmasked is his debut novel, and he now lives outside Atlanta with his wife, Mary. Visit him at www.chrisnegron.com.

Originally from South Louisiana, Rosalind Bunn is a veteran elementary school teacher. While she has dreamed of owning a bookstore, as the author of ten children’s books she is well on her way to filling the shelves with her own tales! Rosalind lives in Marietta, Georgia, with her family and a pet tarantula. This is her fifth collaboration with her daughter, Maggie Bunn.

Maggie Bunn now lives in Marietta, Georgia, but as a child, she joined her mother, Rosalind, on visits to many of the locations featured in this book. She loves reading, fishing, exploring, and sneaking lessons into her stories.
