The first-ever LEGO picture book, from Barnacle Is Bored creator Jonathan Fenske! What happens when an ordinary LEGO minifigure of the past meets the extraordinary minifigures of today, with their elaborate vehicles, colorful clothes, and wild accessories? He thinks he’s no fun at all!
“Let’s face it. If we were all ice cream, those guys would be the super-duper chunky happy birthday blast. And I would be the vanilla.”
After feeling down about being ordinary, he and his new friends piece together just how special he truly is. This vibrantly illustrated storybook will charm readers of all ages, reminding them that what makes each person special can be found on the inside.

New York Times bestelling author Alan Gratz will be celebrating the launch of his latest young adult novel, Grenade, with a book talk and signing at Fiction Addiction on Sunday, October 7th at 2pm. This event is FREE and open to the public, but please RSVP to Fiction Addiction if you plan to attend.
Hideki lives with his family on the island of Okinawa, near Japan. When WWII crashes onto his shores, Hideki is drafted into the Blood and Iron Student Corps to fight for the Japanese army. He is handed a grenade and a set of instructions: Don’t come back until you’ve killed an American soldier.
Ray, a young American Marine, has just landed on Okinawa. This is Ray’s first-ever battle, and he doesn’t know what to expect — or if he’ll make it out alive. He just knows that the enemy is everywhere.
Hideki and Ray each fight their way across the island, surviving heart-pounding ambushes and dangerous traps. But then the two of them collide in the middle of the battle…
And choices they make in that single instant will change everything.
Alan Gratz, New York Times bestselling author of Refugee, returns with this high-octane story of how fear and war tear us apart, but how hope and redemption tie us together.
