Dial Books | 9781101994481 | Published July 4, 2017

Jeremy and Justin are twins, but they couldn’t be any more different from each other. Jeremy is a risk taker who likes to get his hands dirty; Justin prefers to read, focus, and get all his facts straight before jumping in. But they do have one important thing in common: They both love video games. When Jeremy wins a cereal-box charm that brings his favorite video game to life, villains and all, he finds that he’s in way over his head. Justin knows everything there is to know about the rules of the game --- he read the handbook, of course --- and Jeremy isn’t afraid to try new things.

For Babymouse, middle school is like a monster movie. You can never be sure who’s a friend and who’s an enemy, and the halls are filled with mean-girl zombies. Instead of brains, the zombies hunger for stuff --- the perfect wedge sandals or the right shade of sparkly lip gloss --- and they expect everyone to be just like them. But Babymouse doesn’t want to fit in --- she wants to stand out! So she joins the film club to write and direct a sweeping cinematic epic. Will making the film of her dreams turn into a nightmare?

All the sensible hogfolk in Pigdom Plains know that if pigs were meant to fly, they’d have been born with wings --- but there’s no convincing Lily Leanchops. The daughter of renowned inventor Hercules Fatchops, Lily has watched her father’s flying machines fail time and time again. Working in secret, Lily is trying to build what her father couldn’t: an aircraft that actually works. And of course, she’s following his example and employing scientific principals alone --- not magic. (Well, a protection spell or two doesn’t count, right?)
