Meet the next member of the Almost Epic Squad! If you could have any superpower, what would you choose? How about the ability to move things with your mind? But what if concentration and coordination weren't your strongest skills? Thirteen-year-old Gary Lundborg often knows all the right moves, but in the middle of an epic growth spurt, his execution is more disastrous than dazzling these days. Can he master his new powers and become the basketball star he wants to be? Well, first he must save the world!

Gary's gifts are called on by secret government Department C, in charge of problems no one else takes seriously, to thwart the evil mastermind The Boss and her equally evil henchwoman Malevia Spleene in their quest to secure all the world's reidium!

A detective story with as many laughs as there are twists and turns, from award-winning author Ted Staunton! In the beginning, it was simple: I wanted to be a detective, and I needed something to detect . . . Thirteen-year-old Duncan lives with his unconventional bohemian aunt. She's determined to give him an expensive private education, even though Duncan isn't particularly interested in school. He wants to be a detective like the ones in the World's Best 100 Detective Stories, which he reads when he should be studying. Fortunately for Duncan (and readers!), he gets something to detect in the first chapter of this funny crime mystery. Full of twists and turns and laugh-out-loud adventure, this highly entertaining story will have readers wondering if they've solved the mystery (and most likely they haven't) until the last page turn. Ted Staunton ratchets up the fun in this fast-paced romp, loosely based on a true story from Texas in the early 2000s.

Emma searches for her lost favourite toy, and instead finds a true friend. When Emma loses Squeezy, her favourite stuffy, she tries to find another toy to replace her best-loved "pet." It's hard. No one else is exactly like Squeezy, and for Emma, Squeezy is perfect. But instead of finding Squeezy, Emma ends up discovering an unexpected friendship, and that two imaginations are better than one. This touching, smart story of lost-and-found treasures is a great reminder that things don't always go as planned, but they can turn out better than expected. When Emma makes a friend in Frank, she finds what she'd been missing all along! In an equally perfect pairing, Ruth Ohi's delightful art effortlessly brings through the layers in Ted Staunton's nuanced text, bringing together the talents of two of Canada's best-loved storytellers for kids.

A fast-paced story set amidst Toronto's turbulent summer of 1933, this graphic novel sheds light on prejudice and social injustice. It's Toronto in the 1930s. Times are tough, and Sid faces impossible choices as he wrestles with honesty, bigotry, poverty, and expectations as a member of a "whiz mob," slang for a gang of pickpockets. But when Sid and his friends get coerced into working for the police after they're caught lifting a wallet at a baseball game, they become caught up in something much bigger than themselves, and must decide how far they will go to do what's right and to protect those they love. The story climaxes at the infamous Christie Pits Riot, Canada's largest race riot and a historic event that was a symbolic victory for Jewish and immigrant citizens With extraordinarily cinematic artwork that immediately transports readers to the Toronto of 1933, this incredible graphic novel shines a striking lens on many contemporary issues: the immigrant experience, the roots of prejudice, and taking a stand against injustice.

Move over, Max and Ruby. Harry and Clare are here to steal the sibling spotlight! Harry and Clare are stuck at home for their spring break. No exotic locations, no plane trips, no exciting plans. So they make their own fun: the living room becomes Mars, the diving board at the pool becomes a pirate's plank and the local playground where the man-eating octopus lives. The trouble is, older sister Clare is the one making all the rules, and that means deciding on the game AND eating all the food. But Harry has a plan to turn the tables... if he can just keep his snacks out of the Abominable Snowman's clutches!

A hilarious collection of misfires, creative solutions, dumb luck - and startling victories! Where else but Canada would you find a town that turns its main street into a giant tubing run? Or witness a Mission Impossible-style heist where a thief drops down through the ceiling and makes off with over $120,000 worth of hockey sticks? Not to mention the slippery - or was that sticky? - bandits who stole 20,000 litres of maple syrup . . . And where else would you find an aircraft carrier made out of blocks of ice, a man building a miniature version of the entire country, or a moose giving you a carwash? It all makes perfect sense, really. Living in Canada means responding uniquely to a unique environment. And it's our - sometimes highly questionable - ideas that makes us who we are. In an engaging, hilarious and always fascinating exploration of geography, history, wildlife, science, culture, food, art . . . and giant roadside attractions - this is our nation at its most jaw-droppingly unusual and innovative. Though we can poke fun at ourselves, readers will walk away with a sense that there is so much to celebrate about what it means to be Canadian.

All the kids in Morgan's class are itching to go to the zoo--all except Aldeen Hummel, the Godzilla of Grade Three. Aldeen didn't bring her eight dollars, and now she's not allowed to go. When Morgan sees Aldeen looking in the teacher's desk, he suspects there's going to be trouble. And when she shows up later with money for the trip, he knows it. Their teacher finds eight dollars missing from the trip money, and says nobody gets to go until it's returned. Morgan is sure he knows who took it, but wonders whether he should tell or not. When the money finally turns up Morgan finds he has jumped to conclusions, and that there's more to Aldeen Hummel than meets the eye. Morgan and the Money is the story of a boy who struggles with the truth, and finds that things aren't always what they seem to be.

At a Battle of the Bands event, Ace and his best friend Denny notice that girls like musicians, no matter how dorky the dudes might be. Having, so far, been severely challenged when it comes to meeting girls, they decide to start a band. Ace discovers that he loves playing guitar and electric bass. While Denny tweets their every move and their clean-freak drummer, Pig, polishes everything in sight, Ace tries to write a song that will win at the next local teen songwriting contest. It's more difficult than he thought it would be. When Denny brings a great tune to rehearsal, Ace is devastated that Denny, who rarely practices, is a better songwriter than he is. The contest is only days away when Ace discovers that Denny stole the song, and Ace has to decide if winning is worth the lie. Also available in French.

Danny has survived everything life has thrown at him: being abandoned at birth, multiple abusive foster homes, life as a con man in training. But when his latest "protector" dies suddenly, Danny has to think fast or he'll be back in foster care again. He decides to assume the identity of a boy who disappeared three years before. If nothing else, he figures it will buy him a little time. Much to his astonishment, his new "family" accepts him as their own-despite the fact that he looks nothing like their missing relative. But one old cop has his suspicions about Danny-and he's not about to declare the case closed. Inspired by a true story, Who I'm Not is a powerful portrait of a boy whose identity is as fluid as a river and as changeable as a chameleon's skin.
