teemu selane.jpg "My Life"- Ari Mennander & Teemu Selanne

Teemu Selanne may have been anointed “The Finnish Flash,” but his career was anything but fleeting. Few professional hockey players will ever approach the staying power or success that Selanne achieved in all facets of the sport, from helping Finland win four Olympic medals and two World Championship medals to finally capturing, in his words, the Holy Grail—the Stanley Cup—after fourteen seasons.

Drafted by the Winnipeg Jets, Selanne made his NHL debut on October 6, 1992, and his career quickly took flight. He won the Calder Memorial Trophy as the NHL’s best rookie and broke the record for rookie points and goals. When the Jets traded him to the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim on February 6, 1996, Selanne was so devastated that he walked out of the practice arena without speaking to anyone. Over the next five seasons, the Mighty Ducks, led by Selanne and his “on-ice soulmate,” Paul Kariya, lived up to their name. But despite boasting hockey’s best top line, the franchise failed to win a Cup, and in 2001 Selanne was on the move again, this time to San Jose. Although he led the Sharks in scoring in 2002–03, hockey’s highest honour remained beyond his grasp. So in 2003, as free agents (and earning significantly less than their market value), Selanne and Kariya teamed up on the Colorado Avalanche with the sole focus of hoisting the Cup. Unfortunately, that season was a disaster. Nevertheless, Teemu Selanne eventually retired as one of the most prolific scorers in NHL history.

Featuring Selanne’s thoughtful, honest recollections and colour photographs from his personal collection, My Life is as revealing as it is essential—a complete portrait of a devoted friend, family man and hockey superstar.

the rise of magicks.jpg"The Rise of Magicks"- Nora Roberts series "Chronicles of the One" Volume 3

After the sickness known as the Doom destroyed civilization, magick has become commonplace, and Fallon Swift has spent her young years learning its ways. Fallon cannot live in peace until she frees those who have been preyed upon by the government or the fanatical Purity Warriors, endlessly hunted or locked up in laboratories, brutalized for years on end. She is determined to save even those who have been complicit with this evil out of fear or weakness—if, indeed, they can be saved.

Strengthened by the bond she shares with her fellow warrior, Duncan, Fallon has already succeeded in rescuing countless shifters and elves and ordinary humans. Now she must help them heal—and rediscover the light and faith within themselves. For although from the time of her birth, she has been The One, she is still only one. And as she faces down an old nemesis, sets her sights on the enemy’s stronghold, and pursues her destiny—to finally restore the mystical shield that once protected them all—she will need an army behind her…

dragon pearl.jpg  "Dragon Pearl"- Yoon Ha Lee

Thirteen year old Min comes from a long line of fox spirits. But you'd never know it by looking at her. To keep the family safe, Min’s mother insists that none of them use any fox-magic, such as Charm or shape-shifting. They must appear human at all times.

Min feels hemmed in by the household rules and resents the endless chores, the cousins who crowd her, and the aunties who judge her. She would like nothing more than to escape Jinju, her neglected, dust-ridden, and impoverished planet. She’s counting the days until she can follow her older brother, Jun, into the Space Forces and see more of the Thousand Worlds.

When word arrives that Jun is suspected of leaving his post to go in search of the Dragon Pearl, Min knows that something is wrong. Jun would never desert his battle cruiser, even for a mystical object rumored to have tremendous power. She decides to run away to find him and clear his name.

Min’s quest will have her meeting gamblers, pirates, and vengeful ghosts. It will involve deception, lies, and sabotage. She will be forced to use more fox-magic than ever before, and to rely on all of her cleverness and bravery. The outcome may not be what she had hoped, but it has the potential to exceed her wildest dreams.

deposing nathan.png"Deposing Nathan"- Zack Smedley

Nate never imagined that he would be attacked by his best friend, Cam.

Now, Nate is being called to deliver a sworn statement that will get Cam convicted. The problem is, the real story isn’t that easy or convenient—just like Nate and Cam’s friendship. Cam challenged Nate on every level from the day the boys met. He pushed him to break the rules, to dream, and to accept himself. But Nate—armed with a fierce moral code and conflicted by his own beliefs—started to push back. With each push, Nate and Cam moved closer to each other—but also spiraled closer to their breaking points.

what is a refugee.jpg"What Is a Refugee?"- Elise Gravel

An accessible picture book that oh-so-simply and graphically introduces the term "refugee" to curious young children to help them better understand the world in which they live.

Who are refugees? Why are they called that word? Why do they need to leave their country? Why are they sometimes not welcome in their new country? In this relevant picture book for the youngest children, author-illustrator Elise Gravel explores what it means to be a refugee in bold, graphic illustrations and spare text. This is the perfect tool to introduce an important and timely topic to children.
