Uncanny Express, The: The Unintentional Adventures of the Bland Sisters

Uncanny Express, The: The Unintentional Adventures of the Bland Sisters

Author: Kara LaReau Narrator: Rosalyn Landor Release Date: 01/02/2018

Back from their adventure on the high seas, Jaundice and Kale are settling into a quiet life in Dullsville, just the way they like it. The tea is tepid, the oatmeal is tasteless, and the socks are ripe for darning-that is, until Aunt Shallot shows up and reveals herself to be anything but the dull relation they were expecting. Instead, she tells her nieces that she is Magique, Queen of Magic, and that she's on her way to a big show and is in need of two willing assistants. As Magique and the Bland sisters board the Uncanny Express, they meet a cast of mystifying characters. And when Magique goes missing, it's up to Jaundice and Kale to solve the mystery-with the help of famous detective Hugo Fromage.

The Infamous Ratsos: Books 1-2: The Infamous Ratsos; The Infamous Ratsos Are Not Afraid

Author: Kara LaReau Narrator: Mark Turetsky Release Date: 01/09/2017

The Infamous Ratsos: Louie and Ralphie Ratso's dad, Big Lou, always says that there are two kinds of people: those who are tough and those who are soft. Louie and Ralphie are tough, tough, tough, just like Big Lou, and they're going to prove it. But every time they try to show just how tough they are, the Ratso brothers end up accidentally doing good deeds instead. What'll Big Lou do when he finds out they've been acting like softies all over the Big City? Perfect for emerging and reluctant readers, this clever and surprisingly warmhearted chapter book shows that being tough all the time can be really tough. The Infamous Ratsos Are Not Afraid: Louie and Ralphie Ratso have a genius idea: if they clear out the lot down the street, they can use all the junk lying around to build makeshift games for a Big City FunTime Arcade! With their friends to help, they'll be able to recycle all the old abandoned stuff into whack-a-mouse, a high-striker, a fortune-telling booth, and more. Everyone says the house next to the lot is haunted, but if Louie just pretends it's not there, maybe he can ignore the goose bumps he gets every time he looks at it. Ralphie's head's not exactly in the game, either, because of some rumors that have been swirling around school. But they're Ratsos, and like their dad, Big Lou, Ratsos aren't afraid of anything - right? Kara LaReau and Matt Myers team up for a second surprisingly touching chapter book proving that sometimes the things you fear the most aren't at all what you thought - and might be exactly what you need to feel better.

Ugly Fish

Ugly Fish

Author: Kara LaReau Narrator: Ezra Knight Release Date: 01/07/2006

Acclaimed children's author Kara LaReau was inspired to write this story after reading an article about school bullies. Ugly Fish is a big, mean and ugly fish. And because he's big and mean, he scares all the other little fish so that he can keep the fish tank all to himself. Ugly Fish enjoys swimming through his driftwood tunnel and eating his special briny food, and he won't share with anyone else. But when an even bigger, meaner fish shows up in the bowl, Ugly Fish doesn't feel so fearless anymore.
