Need a new book for you or a family member? Check out these three titles from the Capt. Kimberly Hampton Memorial Library.
"Dolphin Baby," by Nicola Davies
Pop! Tail first, head last, Dolphin is born into the blue. He's brand new, but helped by his mother, he swims up, up, up to take his first breath. Readers are invited to join the baby calf as he follows his mom and discovers all there is to know about life under the sea, from catching his first fish to learning how to say his name with his very own whistle.
"Between Shades of Gray," by Ruta Sepetys
In 1941, fifteen-year-old Lina, her mother, and brother are pulled from their Lithuanian home by Soviet guards and sent to Siberia, where her father is sentenced to death in a prison camp while she fights for her life, vowing to honor her family and the thousands like hers by burying her story in a jar on Lithuanian soil.
"Sacre Bleu," by Christopher Moore
Baker-turned-painter Lucien Lessard and bon vivant Henri Toulouse-Lautrec vow to discover the truth behind the untimely death of their friend Vincent van Gogh, which leads them on a surreal odyssey and brothel-crawl deep into the art world of late-nineteenth-century Paris. Great humor from the author of Lamb, Fool, and Bite Me: a love story.
