Just in Time Books - Hot New Titles for your grade school kids

I am happy to share news of a new series of books for 3-7 grade readers called the Just in Time series. I happen to know the illustrator, Manelle Oliphant, so I wanted to put the word out. The books are co-authored by Carol Lynch Williams and Cheri Pray Earl. The books are about twins that travel back in time to rescue their parents who have been lost in time. The first book is titled The Rescue Begins in Delaware. The second book is titled Sweet Secrets in Pennsylvania.

In conjunction with the book release here are some great upcoming events for the book lovers that may still read this blog. If you happen to live in Utah, here are some events you may want to check out.

This is happening soon:
The illustrator, Manelle Oliphant, will be at the Fort Union Barnes and Noble this Saturday the 14th signing Just in Time books as well as some other books she has illustrated from 2-3pm. She says other authors will be there as well, but didn't know which ones.

Keep this on your Calendar:
Both authors and illustrator will be at The King's English on Saturday November 2nd for a presentation and book signing.
The time wasn't specified. You may be able to find more information on The King's English website when the event draws nearer.

 And for anyone else not in Utah you can visit Manelle Oliphant's website for a fun giveaway. She is giving away some board books she has illustrated so head on over to to enter. Please check the official rules before entering to make sure you qualify to win.

Now for some haiku - How Amy views a new book.
