|Jack Blank and the Imagine Nation by Matt Myklusch|
Jack Blank doesn't know who he is or where he
comes from. He doesn't even know his real last name. All
Jack knows is his bleak, dreary life at St. Barnaby's Home
for the Hopeless, Abandoned, Forgotten and Lost.
Everything changes one morning when Jack receives
two visitors. The first is a deadly robot, straight out of one
of Jack's favorite comic books, that tries its best to blow
him up. The second is an emissary from a secret country called
the Imagine Nation, where all the fantastic and unbelievable
things in our world originate-including Jack. Jack soon
discovers that he has an amazing ability-one that could make
him the savior of the Imagine Nation and the world beyond,
or the biggest threat they've ever faced.
|The Immortals by Paul Stewart and Chris Riddell|
Nate Quarter is a lowly lamplighter in the
phrazmines of the Eastern Woods, until treachery
forces him to flee for his life- to the might city of
the Great Glade.
But these are turbulent times. In Far-off Hive-the spectacular
city founded by the goblin tribes- the clan leaders are preparing for war.
And out beyond the dread Nightwoods, in the fabled gardens
of Riverrise, a one-eyed waif jealously guards the
life-giving waters of the mystical Riverrise spring...
Swept up in the maelstrom that follows, Nate and a small
band of intrepid friends must set off on an epic journey that
will lead them into terrible peril.
And all the while, from over the Edge cliff itself, a storm
unlike any every seen before is building-a storm that is
to roll across the land, bringing both echoes of the past and
the promise of a new beginning....
