Grumpy Dad Shovels Snow by Tom Romita

Grumpy Dad Shovels Snow by Tom Romita

"Grumpy Dad Shovels Snow" is the first in the Grumpy Dad children's book series which follow the goings-on in the Terwilliger family, as told through the eyes of four-year-old daughter, Molly. Molly, along with her parents, Tom and Carol, and baby brother Nicky, are a typical family, faced with the typical challenges of any household. As lovable as he is grumpy, Tom’s fatherly challenges provide the structure and life lesson of each story, and the ongoing impetus for Molly’s attempts to figure out what makes this large, and occasionally ornery occupant of the Terwilliger house, tick. In this first installment, Tom's grumpiness is exacerbated by snow. Molly can't understand why snow would make her dad, or anyone, grumpy. Tom's dealing with the snow, and Molly, leads to a funny, heartwarming story that will delight grown- ups and children alike.

Kat McGee and the School of Christmas Spirit by Rebecca Munsterer

If Kat McGee had one Christmas wish, she'd wish to be special. Instead, she's the boring middle in a family packed with sparkly siblings, including three sisters who have all starred as Mary in Totsville, Maine's annual big-deal Christmas Pageant. All Kat's done is wet her pants on a rollercoaster and earn herself the horrible nickname, "Kat McPee." When she doesn't get the part of Mary, Kat's convinced that Christmas will be just another Kat McPee failure. But then Kat's beloved Gram lets it slip that she went to school with Mrs. Claus. THE Mrs. Claus. Before Kat knows it, a magical snowglobe whisks her away to the North Pole, where she makes friends, checks naughty and nice lists, and takes classes in cookie baking, reindeer training, and toy designing. It's a Christmas miracle... But something is wrong. The North Pole is being threatened, and only Kat McGee can help. Kat McGee and The School of Christmas Spirit is about a modern girl in a magical adventure. Kat is about to learn who you can be if you believe in Christmas... and yourself. | In This Together Media

Kat McGee and The Halloween Costume Caper by Kristin Riddick

Halloween is Kat McGee's day. She may feel like a loser the rest of the year, but come the season of trick-or-treating, costume contests, hay mazes, and haunted houses, Kat reigns supreme. No one in Totsville, Maine can bob a better apple or carve a more perfect pumpkin. But now the mysterious Dr. S is threatening to take Kat's day away. Dr. S hates Halloween as much as Kat loves it. Kat's in a panic over the holiday ban in Totsville when grandmotherly magic transports her to the wondrous city of Treatsville, where Halloween costumes live all year long-- and where the key to saving Halloween in Totsville just might lie. But Treatsville is being menaced, too. Costumes are disappearing, and the Halloween magic is going with them. It's up to Kat to help. Aided by the sugary-sweet spells of good witch Dolce, her sidekick owl DeLeche, and Kat's best costumes ever--Jujitsu Princess and Candy Cane Witch-- Kat must face down haunted forests, cruel tests, and the blackest magic the evil Snaggletooth can throw at her. She'll learn lessons about sharing the Halloween glory-- and learning to feel like a winner on every day, not just Halloween. | In This Together Media
