About the Prizes:

House of Cards – Eighteen-year-old
Sherry has just begun her newly independent life in Paris when she is
kidnapped by a group of vampires. They hold her hostage in the House of
Cadamon, their catacomb lair beneath the city, ruled with an iron fist
by a leader known as “the Master.” The only thing keeping Sherry alive
is her ability to tell vampire fortunes through tarot cards, a task she
is forced to perform night after night. She finds an unlikely ally in
Lucas, a four-hundred-year-old reluctant blood drinker who is as much a
prisoner of Cadamon as she is.

Things get even more complicated
when Sherry and Lucas begin falling for each other—hard. Will they be
able to keep Sherry alive long enough for them both to escape the House
of Cadamon? Or will the Master and his band of evil minions succeed in
controlling the lives of the young lovers—by whatever means necessary?

its breathtaking Parisian setting, fast-moving plot, and strong-willed
heroine, this paranormal romance will keep you spellbound!

Castles in the Air – Ten-year-old Wikkley
McStag and his family are born farmers, happy to work the land. But then
they—and other royal subjects—are forced to buy strange, useless
machines. Money starts running out. Now the McStags have two days before
they lose their farm. As the eldest child, Wikkley must journey to the
palace and ask for the king’s help. His loved ones only hope his
reckless nature won’t get him in trouble once he’s there!

Wikkley arrives at the palace, he finds an unnecessary castle being
built right into the sky. The same thing is happening in a neighboring
kingdom. When royal foolishness leads to disaster, it’s up to Wikkley to
save several lives. Will his recklessness finally come in handy? Or
will it mean the end of his family, his farm, and possibly . . . his

From the fantasy world of The Adventures of Stanley Delacourt,
Ilana Waters brings you another alternate-medieval adventure. If you
like Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn, don’t miss meeting Wikkley McStag!


The Adventures of Stanley Delacourt – Ten-year-old Stanley
Delacourt loves his quiet life in the peaceful village of Meadowwood. At
least, he does until his best friend is killed. Then the town
library—where Stanley lives and works—is burned to the ground. The
individuals responsible for both tragedies are a nasty group of
soldiers. They work for the kingdom’s new leader, Christopher Siren.
With the grown-ups too fearful to take action, Stanley vows to confront
Siren. He plans to get answers and demand justice. Little does he know
that his journey will involve sword-wielding knights, kidnapper fairies,
and dark magic.

Stanley has only two allies back home: a witch
named Meredith, and a young apothecary called Sophie. Can they help him
discover the reason behind Siren’s crimes and end this terrible reign?
Or is Stanley set to become the next victim in the tyrant’s evil plot?

Pullman, then explore the world of Stanley Delacourt today!


Paying Piper – The people of Hamelin
have a problem with rats. There are rats in their houses, their
stores—even swimming in their stew! The rats don’t think they’re a
problem. They just want to live their lives in peace. With the town’s
approval, the mayor thinks of a clever way to solve the problem. He
offers twenty gold pieces to a piper to rid the town of rats. He
delivers only five.

But he’s cheated the wrong piper, who’ll have
to use both skill and wit to teach this town a lesson. Because there’s
more than money at stake. An evil pattern is emerging in the way Hamelin
treats any creature it considers inferior. And the Piper vows to put an
end to it—once and for all.

Think you know everything about this
classic folktale of greed and cunning? In “Paying Piper,” you’ll learn
what really happened the day a magical musician came to Hamelin—and why.

Fans of fairy tales with a twist will delight in this tricky,
witty middle-grade short story. (And if you’re a parent or teacher, stay
tuned for bonus discussion questions at the end!)

“Paying Piper” is approximately 5,000 words, or about twenty pages.

Paying Piper is FREE on these sites:
