Amazon Says: For Clementine, spring is a really big deal. It's the time for seeing her apple tree start to grow, for watching her friend Margaret go crazy with spring cleaning, and for going on the school trip to Plimoth Plantation. Clementine is ready for Ye Olden Times, but she isn't so sure about surviving lunch there-the fourth graders have strict rules about no eating sounds. (What is snicking, anyway? ) If that wasn't enough, Clementine also faces the challenges of learning Olive-language and surviving The Cloud on Bus 7. Hearing the pilgrim lady talk about why she made the long journey from England makes Clementine think about rules. Who makes them, and what do they mean to the people who have to live with them? Today Clementine has to decide which rules are made to be broken. less...

Amazon Says: Croak! Squeenk! Ribbet! After a close encounter with a mutant amphibian makes him freaky for frogs, water-shy Stink becomes a swimming success. Stink may be super smart, and Stink may be uber clever, but he’s been in the Polliwog swim class frog-ever and he still can’t bear to put his face in the water. Why would he want a geyser up his nose, on purpose? But then something weird happens: Stink starts to see frogs everywhere — in the locker room, in his boot, in the bathtub. And when a freaky blue frog licks his arm, his froggy senses start tingling! He has an urge to slurp up raisins (that look like flies). He can’t wait to play in the rain and mud. He’s a wiz at identifying frog calls. And he has become very interested in the local frog population. Could it be that Stink is turning into . . . the amazing Stink-Frog, fighter of slime? Pree-eep! Craw-awk! less...

Amazon Says: Turns out, the dinosaurs weren't wiped out by a giant asteroid. No way! They saw that big rock coming and blasted off into space. There are 3 stories. BURGERS VS. SALAD: The dinos occupy two entrée-oriented planets: planet Plant and planet Meat. Verbal insults and a food fight ensue between herbivores and carnivores as they chow down at the Big Comet Diner. An omnivore-dino brings the two sides together when he suggests veggie burgers and adding lettuce to the meat patties. The initially skeptical dinos eat it up and discover many mutual interests. SCARY ALIEN FROM ANOTHER PLANET: The ETD's make the terrifying discovery of an Earthling astronaut. Turns out, the astronaut is even more freaked out when he gets a load of a bunch of space dinosaurs staring at him. THE GREAT SPACE RACE: Dino-buddies have a contentious friendship--Tyrone's the free-spirited one who likes to make a contest out of everything and doesn't care about the rules. Stewart is more conscientious and practical. But when Tyrone's devil-may-care gamesmanship almost lands him in a black hole, it's Stewart to the rescue as he straps on jetpacks and pulls his pal away from the void. less...
