Extincts Volume 2 Flight Of The Mammoth GN – Amulet Books releases the second volume in this action-oriented series. After defeating their boss Dr. Z, the members of R.O.A.R., the Rescue Ops Acquisition Rangers, need to find a new way to pay the bills and support themselves. Scratch, Martie, Quito and Ursa open a zoo and gift shop, thinking it a great chance to educate the public and teach people to be better to the environment. Lug, however, after a fiery and near-tragic incident, decides to leave the team to help a group of smoke jumpers stop the wildfires in California. The fires may not be natural, though, but a way to lure Lug into following a mysterious trail. It’s going to take the help of all the Extincts to get to the bottom of the mystery and save the day! Filled with humor, action, and an environmental angle, this title is a great addition to middle school libraries.
Jurassic Jeff Volume 1 Space Invader GN – Random House Graphic introduces a new series about friendship and world domination! Jeff has been sent from his home star system to Earth with one mission: to take over the world. Unfortunately, he crash-lands a few million years too early. Finding dinosaurs as the dominant species, he sets to work anyway. Dinosaur friends Carl, Hungry, and Spike find Jeff, and they get roped into helping Jeff in his mission to take over their favorite (and only) planet. Jeff runs into a snag when his search for the “leader” brings big surprises, and raises the question if he will be able to complete his invasion. Fans of Cat Kid Comic Club and InvestiGators will love this new series.
