New releases for the week of 4 September 2016



The Great Shelby Holmes

By Elizabeth Eulberg

John’s mom has gotten out of the army and taken a job in NYC where he meets his new neighbor, Shelby. John’s used to making new friends, but Shelby is different. Very different. She’s a pint-sized detective, Shelby Holmes, and he’s her Watson, literally. His name is John Watson.

Shelby gets asked to help locate a classmate’s missing pooch, and John, who happens to be with her, goes along. John finds that she is hard to get to know and like, but he is curious about her and the case.

Shelby, for all her smarts, isn’t very good at dealing with people (sound familiar, Sherlock?). John helps with that.  

But the question remains, will the two be able to return the award-winning pooch to its owner before the dog show?

Fun remake of the Sherlock Holmes legend. For middle grade.

Hank, Hector, and Henry, the Hooligan boys, are three brothers that like a good time. They also like to do the right thing. When they try to keep a prank from happening at school, they get blamed for it by the principal and the prankster gets upset that they ruined his prank.

They are challenged to a go-cart race by the bully, Rock, but during the race they are forced off the road by a huge purple blob, an alien.
