New Series // Disney's Twisted Tales


New in the store: Disney's Twisted Tales by Liz Braswell.  These young adult books "reimagine classic Disney stories in surprising new ways." Recommended for grades 7 & up, however, younger advanced readers may also enjoy the series also!  These paperback books are just $5 each and a great gift for the holiday season!

A Whole New WorldWhat if Aladdin had never found the lamp? This first book in the A Twisted Tale line will explore a dark and daring version of Disney's Aladdin. When Jafar steals the Genie's lamp, he uses his first two wishes to become sultan and the most powerful sorcerer in the world. Agrabah lives in fear, waiting for his third and final wish.To stop the power-mad ruler, Aladdin and the deposed princess Jasmine must unite the people of Agrabah in rebellion. But soon their fight for freedom threatens to tear the kingdom apart in a costly civil war. What happens next? A Street Rat becomes a leader. A princess becomes a revolutionary. And readers will never look at the story of Aladdin in the same way again.

Once Upon A Dream: What if the sleeping beauty never woke up?  It should be simple--a dragon defeated, a slumbering princess in a castle, a prince poised to wake her. But when the prince falls asleep as his lips touch the fair maiden's, it is clear that this fairy tale is far from over. With a desperate fairy's last curse controlling her mind, Princess Aurora must escape from a different castle of thorns and navigate a dangerously magical landscape--created from her very own dreams. Aurora isn't alone--a charming prince is eager to join her quest, and old friends offer their help. But as Maleficent's agents follow her every move, Aurora struggles to discover who her true allies are and, moreover, who she truly is. Time is running out. Will the sleeping beauty be able to wake herself up?

As Old As Time: What if Belle's mother cursed the Beast? When Belle touches the Beast's enchanted rose, memories flood through Belle's mind—memories of a mother she thought she would never see again. And, stranger still, she sees that her mother is none other than the beautiful enchantress who cursed the castle and all its inhabitants. Shocked and confused, Belle and the Beast will have to unravel a dark mystery about their families that is 21 years in the making.

Store Update // Children's Play Area


We are happy to announce a new addition to our children's play area -this beautiful wooden fire truck! Kids can sit at the wheel and pretend to drive, hope in the backseat, or pull out two plush hoses from the rear compartment! Isn't it adorable?! I saw it on Facebook Marketplace and had to have it. I hope it brings lots of joy to kids in the community 😊

What are bargain books? Bargain Books are overstocks from publishers that are purchased in bulk for reduced prices. We are then able to pass the savings on to you! These books do have a small remainder mark (a small dot or line in permanent marker) on the bottom spine from the publisher, however, they have never been read or used in any way.
