The Mysterious Benedict Society

It’s been a long time since the Mysterious Benedict Society got together.  A little older now, Reynie, Kate and Sticky, have a fight on their hands, battling all sorts of instruments of evil in their latest book, The Mysterious Benedict Society and the Riddle of Ages releasing September 24.  Catch up with the series by reading the first three books: The Mysterious Benedict Society, The Mysterious Benedict Society and the Perilous Journey, and The Mysterious Benedict Society and the Prisoner’s Dilemma.

Have you heard about the Dog Man Do Good campaign?  This campaign encourages you to give back and do something good for your community.  To promote this campaign, there is going to be a book tour across the U.S. and around the world.  Scholastic, the publisher of the Dog Man books, wants you to share how you ‘do good’.  Get something started at YOUR school.  Get the details here.


  • Netflix is planning thirteen episodes of Green Eggs and Ham later this year with cutting edge animation never seen before.  The plot is based on a cross country trip with Guy and Sam I Am trying to rescue an endangered species from a far-out zoo.
  • Another series coming to Netflix is The Baby-Sitter’s Club.  You’ll be able to follow the adventures of the five friends that started the babysitting service: Kristy, Mary-Anne, Claudia, Stacey, and Dawn.  There is no timeline on when this series will start, but it gives you plenty of time to read the hundred books in the series.
  • A new Scooby-Doo movie, Scoob, is in the works, scheduled for release in May 2020. In this movie Fred and Daphne team up with the other characters to save the world from the evil Dick Dastardly.
  • Paddington Bear is now featured on two new 50p coins, just released from the Royal Mint in South Wales.  One of the coins feature Paddington at the Tower of London and the other at St. Paul’s Cathedral, marking the 60th anniversary of Paddington.  You can see what the new coins look like here.

It’s BACK TO SCHOOL!  Hope you all had a great summer and got a lot of reading done.  I didn’t quite get to my goal of 100 books, but I am going to continue reading.  There are SOOOO many new books coming out.  I love Dogman and the Diary of a Wimpy Kid and both of these series have a new book coming out in the next couple months.  I also like Noodleheads and Unlimited Squirrels.  Check YOUR library shelves for these and other series and find a new one to fall in love with this school year.
