Tuesdays with Tundra 19

Tuesdays with Tundra is a monthly post on our new releases. The following books are available today in stores and online!

Dear George Clooney, Please Marry My Mom
By Susin Nielsen
Paperback | 240 pages | Ages 11-14
ISBN: 978-1-77049-295-0
eBook: 978-0-88776-978-8
“Nielsen (Word Nerd) has created a narrator as sassy and candid as this memorable novel’s title…. Nielsen skillfully balances her story’s keen humor…with poignancy. Especially affecting are Violet’s struggles to accept her father’s new family….” – Starred Review, Publishers Weekly

The Green Man
By Michael Bedard
Hardcover | 320 pages | Ages 10-14
ISBN: 978-1-77049-285-1
eBook: 978-1-77049-293-6
“…Bedard takes full advantage of the genre’s atmospheric creepiness and sepia-toned timelessness. O is a contemporary character, but the story is refreshingly free of hoodies, malls, product placements, and texting…. For more plot-hungry Goosebumps graduates, there are dark strangers, abandoned mansions, ghostly glowing, chilling coincidences, and otherworldly portals galore.” – Starred Review, Quill & Quire

Here Comes Hortense!
By Heather Hartt-Sussman
Illustrated by Georgia Graham
Hardcover | 32 pages | Ages 4-7
ISBN: 978-1-77049-221-9
“…Here Comes Hortense should be a welcomed addition for those seeking stories that explore intergenerational relationships. Georgia Graham’s artwork is truly delightful…. The drawings suit the story so well and are complemented with large bold text in many strategic places. The theme park, depicted in all its ‘over the top’ garish features, is appealing and humorous. The results are playful, quirky, colourful and action-packed artwork!” – Highly Recommended, CM Magazine

The Last Song
By Eva Wiseman
Hardcover | 232 pages | Ages 11+
ISBN: 978-0-88776-979-5
eBook: 978-0-88776-980-1
“With spies and informers on all sides, the story builds to a gripping climax…readers will easily be caught by the young girl’s personal heartbreak and conflict and will want to find out more.” – Booklist

  1. I’ve missed Michael Bedard so much. He does SCARY so well. I hope I have a ghosy of a chance to win The Green Man.

    Is Nana as cool as ever? Let’s hope the best dresser doen’t get dressed down and that love conquers all.

  2. I would love to be able to have chance of winning ‘the last song’ as it looks an increadible novel & something that would really interest me. Thank you for such a fantastic book giveaway! Xx

  3. I’ve been looking forward to Eva Wiseman’s “The Last Song”. “Puppet” blew me away with the horror of reality and I expect a similar experience from all her writing. Isn’t that what makes historical fiction so compelling: truth is stranger than fiction?

  4. Dear George Clooney, Please Marry My Mom
    It sounds like an interesting fun read! I’d love to win it!

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  5. If I were Violet’s mother I would tell her that I would be ssoooo happy to marry George Clooney. I have been in love with him since I first saw him on ER. What a dreamboat. BTW I am a 59 year old who raised two boys on my own so the idea of being married to George to make my kids happy. I like that idea. Looks like an interesting story.

  6. I would love to win Dear George Clooney, Please Marry My Mom….based on the description which sounds hilarious….as is the title as well!

  7. My daughter has chosen Here Comes Hortense. Thanks for the giveaway!`


  8. THE LAST SONG sounds intriguing! I would be delighted if I won a copy! Great choices! It was difficult to just pick one.
