Trust me. . . . Go ahead. It's not snooping, because you're invited to dig right into the private diary of Melanie Martin, age 10.

As she discovers Michelangelo, gelato, and the joy of penning poetry, she also discovers how much her crazy family really means to her. Maybe she won't trade them in after all.

Finding the Speed of Light: The 1676 Discovery That Dazzled The World

by Mark Weston

Kirkus Star Mark Weston’s high-interest story and Rebecca Evans’s colorful graphics make scientific discovery the coolest thing this side of Jupiter. More than two centuries before Einstein, using a crude telescope and a mechanical timepiece, Danish astronomer Ole Romer measured the speed of light with astounding accuracy. How was he able to do this when most scientists didn’t even believe that light traveled? Like many paradigm-shattering discoveries, Romer’s was accidental. Night after night he was timing the disappearance and reappearance of Jupiter’s moon Io behind the huge, distant planet. Eventually he realized that the discrepancies in his measurements could have only one explanation: Light had a speed, and it took longer to reach Earth when Earth was farther from Jupiter. All he needed then to calculate light’s speed was some fancy geometry.

The Creature Department

by Robert Paul Weston Framestore

"Stunning...a bit like if you took Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Monsters Inc. and shoved them in a TARDIS." --Buzzfeed It's a tentacled, inventive, gooey, world in there. . . . Elliot Von Doppler and his friend Leslie think nothing ever happens in Bickleburgh, except inside the gleaming headquarters of DENKi-3000--the world's eighth-largest electronics factory. Beneath the glass towers and glittering skywalks, there's a rambling old mansion from which all the company's amazing inventions spring forth. And no one except Uncle Archie knows what's behind the second-to-last door at the end of the hall. Until Elliot and Leslie are invited to take a glimpse inside. They find stooped, troll-like creatures with jutting jaws and broken teeth. Tiny winged things that sparkle as they fly. And huge, hulking, hairy nonhumans (with horns). It is unlike anything they've ever seen. But when Chuck Brickweather threatens to shut down the DENKi-3000 factory if a new product isn't presented soon, the creatures know they are in danger. And when Uncle Archie vanishes, it's up to Elliot, Leslie, and every one of the unusual, er, "employees" to create an invention so astonishing it will save the Creature Department.
