Readers who love Percy Jackson, the Unwanteds, and Beyonders will discover that 100 cupboards mean 100 opportunities for adventure! The bestselling and highly acclaimed 100 Cupboards series starts here.   What dangers are locked behind the cupboard doors? Henry isn’t brave, but when he hears a thumping and scratching on the other side of his bedroom wall, he can’t ignore it. He scrapes off the plaster and discovers mysterious doors—cupboards of all different shapes and sizes. Through one he sees a glowing room and a man strolling back and forth. Through another he sees only darkness and feels the cold sense that something isn’t right. When his cousin Henrietta boldly travels into the worlds beyond the cupboards, it’s up to Henry to follow her. Now that he’s opened the doors, can he keep the evil inside from coming through?   “A must-read series.” —The Washington Post

You’d be upset too if you turned into a poodle instead of a wolf. Freddy Lupin is gearing up for the most exciting night of his life. It’s the evening of his one-hundred-and-twenty-first month (that’s ten years and one month to a human), and he’s about to undergo his very first transwolftation. But when Freddy is introduced to the much-honored Hidden Moonlight Gathering of Werefolk, the rite of passage quickly morphs into an episode of humiliation. Because Freddy doesn’t turn into a wolf. He turns into a poodle. A funny and fast-paced adventure ensues, in which Freddy is thrown out of his pack, uncovers the truth about his legendary father’s mysterious death, and discovers that a werewolf hunter is planning to destroy all of his family and friends—and Freddy might be the only one who can stop him. He might be small, pink, and groomed, but luckily, Freddy Lupin is one hundred percent wolf.

Most of us take our underwear for granted, but throughout history our undies have revealed a lot about who we are (king or peasant), how we work (in fields or factories) or the shapes we value (manly calves or tiny waists). The third book in Annick’s 50 Questions series tackles questions such as “What’s that smell?” (Medieval Europeans thought bathing made you sick) and “Did boxers arrive in the Nick of time?” (When blue jean model Nick Kamen stepped out of his denims to reveal his boxers, sales of the underwear soared.) Underwear has played a role in ancient crusades, city sieges and even modern economic predictions. Obviously, it’s time to uncover the facts about everything from loincloths and T-shirts to bloomers and lingerie. Young readers will laugh their pants off at the accompanying cartoons and get the bare, but fascinating, facts about the history of our unmentionables.
