The wolves howl at night in the bone-chilling cold of winter. But in the summer, where do they go? With the weather getting warmer and more people doing things outdoors, Maggie Stiefvater tries to answer that question with Shiver.
For the past six years, 15-year-old Grace Brisbane’s life has revolved around the wolves that live in the woods behind her parents’ house in Mercy Falls, Minnesota. They attacked her when she was young, but she was mysteriously saved. And for some reason, ever since the attack, she seems to have an almost lupine sense of smell.

Here at the Northeast Neighborhood Library, we've been receiving lots of new titles in the children's room.
In an earlier post, we shared some new chapter books and nonfiction titles. Now it's time to present some of the new picture books.
Here are three wonderful wordless or nearly wordless picture books we've received recently. The beauty of wordless books is that you and your child can customize the story-telling experience--you can make up a different version every time, or encourage your child to tell his or her own story using the pictures.
