Nolan's sick of watching the class bully, Bubba, terrorizing everyone in school, stealing things, and getting away with it. When their teacher assigns a newspaper project, Nolan has a bright idea. If Nolan could catch Bubba in the act and post the results online, maybe he could turn the tables on Bubba. With that, Shredderman.com is born, meting out justice for the fifth grade. This is the first book in the Shredderman series.

For the first two weeks of second grade, Emily sits in the exact middle of the bus: not by the kindergartners, not by the older kids. Then, suddenly, there is a new, small bus, and Emily can no longer sit in the place she's comfortable. She's so flustered, she forgets her lunch. Her classmate, Vincetta Louise, says their teacher will give Emily a ticket. Will Emily get in trouble? This realistic school story with illustrations throughout the text is a great choice for readers new to chapter books.

Kevin Boland has a secret. Sure, he loves to play baseball. He even hopes to turn pro someday. His secret is that he also loves to write poetry, but not the mushy, boring kind. Usually, his poems do not even rhyme. He keeps them in a journal and they tell of his every-day experiences. His girlfriend, Mira, doesn't really understand. Kevin's dilemma is that he has met a girl, Amy, who shares his love of poetry and even enjoys sharing her poems with him. Kevin isn't sure that he doesn't prefer Amy's company to Mira's. This sequel to Shakespeare Bats Cleaup is a great story of a middle school boy's introduction to the riddle of girls. Kevin's love of poetry is infectious.
