Are you the ultimate Descendants fan? You'll be excited about Return to Isle of the Lost, by Melissa de la Cruz, just in stores yesterday (5/24/16). 

Here's more about the book:

Mal’s an expert at intimidating her enemies, but she’s broken the habit since leaving her villainous roots behind. So when she and her friends Evie, Carlos, and Jay all receive threatening messages demanding they return home, Mal can’t believe it. Sure, she’s King Ben’s girlfriend now, and she’s usually nice to her classmates, but she still didn’t think anyone would be silly enough to try to push her around.

The thing is, it kind of worked. Especially since she and her friends have a sneaking suspicion that their villainous parents are behind the messages. And when Evie looks into her Magic Mirror, what she sees only confirms their fears. Maleficent’s just a tiny lizard after her run-in with Mal at Ben’s Coronation, but she’s the worst villain in the land for a reason. Could she have found a way to escape? Whatever’s going on, Mal, Evie, Carlos, and Jay know they have to sneak back to the Isle and get to the bottom of it.

Without its infamous leader, the island’s even worse than when they left it, but the comforts of home—even a home as gloomy as the Isle of the Lost—can be hard to resist for recently reformed villains. Will the kids be able to beat the evil bubbling at the Isle’s wicked core, or will the plot to destroy Auradon succeed?

My girls are BIG fans of the movie and TV series, so they're thrilled to have the opportunity to read this book...

Win-It Wednesday: Dance, Dance Prize Pack (1 Winner!)

by Tara Kuczykowski on February 10, 2016 · 92 comments

Do you have some young ballerinas in the house? Bob Shea created The Ballet Cat series for ages 6-8. Your little dancers are sure to enjoy the books with their cute illustrations.

Though my girls are a bit on the older side at ages 9 and 11, we flipped through the books together and they adored all of the bright colorful illustrations. These are exactly the kind of books that we would have read together each night when they were younger -- funny and entertaining, with a great moral at the end.

And I assure that you little one will flip for the Ballet Cat plush! As a fan of all things pink, my 11-year-old took one look at this sweet little pink stuffed cat and immediately claimed her. It's easy to see why her soccer coach nicknamed her "Pink" when she was eight, and it's stuck ever since!

Here's a quick summary for both books:

The Totally Secret Secret
Ballet Cat and Sparkles the Pony are trying to decide what to play today. Nothing that Sparkles suggests--making crafts, playing checkers, and selling lemonade--goes well with the leaping, spinning, and twirling that Ballet Cat likes to do. When Sparkles's leaps, spins, and twirls seem halfhearted, Ballet Cat asks him what's wrong. Sparkles doesn't want to say. He has a secret that Ballet Cat won't want to hear. What Sparkles doesn't know is that Ballet Cat has a secret of her own, a totally secret secret. Once their secrets are shared, will their friendship end, or be stronger than ever?

Dance! Dance! Underpants!
Ballet Cat is getting her friend Butter Bear ready for her big ballet debut. "Leap, Butter Bear, leap!" Ballet Cat prompts. But Butter Bear would prefer to just point her toe. When Ballet Cat keeps pushing, Butter Bear gets hungry, then thirsty, then sleepy . . . The bottom line is that Butter Bear would rather do almost anything to avoid making a big leap. Why? Because her bottom is covered in silly underpants! This second entry in the Ballet Cat series will have beginning readers rolling on the floor with laughter.

One (1) lucky Deal Seeking Mom reader will win a Ballet Cat Dance, Dance Prize Pack, which includes:

To enter, share your ballet cat's favorite dance moves - is she a toe pointer or does she love to leap, spin and twirl?!
