D.W. All Wet
By Marc Brown
Arthur the Aardvark's little sister D.W. stars in the second book (the first was D.W. Flips) of her own series that features the likable, cheeky young heroine. This time D.W. stands in her sunglasses, robe and broad-brimmed sunhat, and adamantly announces, "I don't like the beach, and I don't like to get wet." She asks to leave the minute she arrives, she won't play and she's afraid of getting sunburned. It's Arthur who helps change D.W.'s mind about the beach by unexpectedly tossing her into very shallow water
D.W. Go To Your Room!
By Marc Brown
When D.W. won't share with her baby sister, Kate, Mom sends D.W. to her room. Her ten-minute time-out seems like forever! At first D.W. sulks, but as the time ticks by, she starts to worry that her family will completely forget about her. What if she starves? What if they don't love her anymore? Every minute D.W. imagines a wild new scenario as she waits out her punishment.

D.W. Says Please And Thank You
By Marc Brown

D.W. The Picky Eater
By Marc Brown
There's a whole slew of edibles that D.W. finds disgusting, but spinach is at the top of her list. Dining out with her family, she causes a scene when her parents suggest that she give her salad greens a try - no more restaurants for the picky little aardvark after that. Staying home with a sitter is boring, though, so when she hears about her grandmother's birthday dinner at a fancy restaurant, she wants to come, too. She orders the Little Bo Peep Pot Pie, devours it with relish, amazing everybody, including herself, and learns a lesson. The text is spare and funny, and while all the coloured-pencil illustrations reflect Brown's sense of humour and familiarity with the little details of childhood, some are downright hilarious. Charming endpapers feature some of the foods D.W. loves to hate. Although she wears an expression of pure horror when she discovers the main ingredient of her pie, readers will suspect that she'll keep that delicious spinach down and her mind and mouth open to new eating possibilities in the future.
D.W.'S Library Card

But when she tries to find the book she wants, it's gone! Somehow D.W. manages to wait a whole week for the book to be returned, only to hear that she can't damage it or her library card will be taken away - forever!

With a little time and creativity, D.W. comes up with gifts for each member of her family-and finds that giving is the best present she can receive!

But when something falls out of the sky on the hills near his small Scottish town, he finds his cynicism can't identify or explain the phenomenon. And in a future where nothing is a secret, where everything is recorded on CCTV or reported online, why can he find no evidence of the UFO, nor anything to shed light on what occurred? Is it the political revolutionaries, is it the government or is it aliens themselves who are creating the cover-up? Or does the very idea of a cover-up hide the biggest secret of all?
