Samantha Spinner’s uncle Paul disappeared, and only left her a rusty red umbrella with a tag hanging off its worn handle that says “Watch out for the RAIN.” After all the strawberry waffles, stories and puzzles they’ve shared, how could he just leave without saying goodbye? The answer is simple. Sam knows in her heart that Uncle Paul is in danger. And if he taught her anything, it’s that not everything is exactly what it seems. The RAIN is coming and Samantha Spinner is about to find herself mixed up in some super-important, super-dangerous, super-secret plans.

Written by Suzanne Selfors with illustrations by Barbara Fisinger - Adventure, Children's 8-12, Fiction, Pets

Wedgie and Gizmo’s humans are taking their first family vacation --- to a campground by a lake! And their pets are too destructive to stay home alone. Wedgie the corgi is super-excited. He can’t wait to chase squirrels and poop in the woods! But Gizmo, the evil genius guinea pig, has no time for games. He must convince the forest critters to join his Evil Horde and help him take over the world --- one tent at a time. Muh-hah-hah!
