Art and Max are lizards, living in the desert. They need to grab all the beauty and fun they can. Arthur, as he prefers to be called, is a talented artist. Max would like to paint, too, but he doesn't know what to paint. Art gets more than he bargained for when he suggests that Max should paint him and gets spattered with multiple colors. When Max tries to remove the paint, he ends up removing Art. Can Max bring Art back? Will life on the desert ever be the same? We all get into the amusement as Caldecott-winning artist Wiesner has fun with art.

Artemis Fowl is desperately seeking to regain his family's fortune. The Fowl Estate was built entirely on criminal activity, and Artemis seems to be in no hurry to clear the family name. However, after kidnapping a fairy for fairy ransom money, and imprisoning her in his home, he has more than a few magic spells with which to contend. The fairy people enlist everything from time freezing devices, criminal dwarves, psychotic trolls, laser blasters, biological bombs, LEPrecon Unit teams (the fairies' elite fighting force), superior technology, and even their own, natural magic, to reclaim their lost soldier. Who will win in this deadly chess game? The skilled fairy armed forces, or the twelve-year old Artemis, criminal mastermind in the making? Need more- Read Artemis Fowl, the Arctic Incident.

Meet Ry. He is off on a train to summer camp when he reads a letter that came a few days ago. The letter says not to come to camp. When he gets off the train to call his grandfather, the train leaves him with his backpack of belongings still on the train! Ry's luck goes from bad to worse to much worse throughout this book making the situations seem (almost) comical. Ry believes that maybe his luck is getting better when he hitchhikes and a man named Del stops to pick him up. Just as fast as good luck comes upon Ry, bad luck returns when Del's car stalls. The journey that Ry makes through the course of this book is amazingly easy-as easy as falling off the face of the earth, that is.
