"The Red Pyramid" is here!

If you loved Rick Riordan’s “The Lightening Thief”, you’ll be happy to know that the first volume in his new “Kane Chronicles” series, “The Red Pyramid” is here!

Egyptologist Dr. Julius Kane accidentally unleashes the Egyptian god Set, who banishes the doctor to oblivion and forces his two children to embark on a dangerous journey to save him.
It’s getting great reviews and is supposed to have a terrific ending.
If “Red Pyramid” is checked out, place a request and try one of these similar titles while you wait:

Leven Thumps series by Obert Skye
The Bartimaeus Trilogy by Jonathan Stroud
The Wolves Chronicles by Joan Aiken
Kronos Chronicles by Marie Rutkoski
Moongobble and Me (series) by Bruce Coville
AutumnQuest by Terie Garrison
Bella at midnight by Diane Stanley
Skin Hunger by Kathleen Duey
The Wanderer by Sharon Creech
Kingdom Hearts (graphic novel series) by Shiro Amano

We’ve also just received “Percy Jackson and the Olympians” on DVD. Which did you like more, the book or the movie?
