Hardcover, 272 pages
Expected publication: September 2012 by Poppy
What if a beautiful dress could take you back in time?
Louise Lambert’s best friend’s thirteenth birthday party is fast approaching, so of course the most important question on her mind is, “What am I going to wear?!” Slipping on an exquisite robin’s egg blue gown during another visit to the mysterious Traveling Fashionista Vintage Sale, Louise finds herself back in time once again, swept up in the glory of palace life, fancy parties, and enormous hair as a member of the court of France’s most infamous queen, Marie Antoinette.
But between cute commoner boys and glamorous trips to Paris, life in the palace isn’t all cake and couture. Can Louise keep her cool-and her head!-as she races against the clock to get home?
Victricia Malicia: Book-Loving Buccaneer
Victricia Malicia Calamity Barrett may have been born on her family’s pirate ship, but this mild-mannered young lady is sick of the sea: she’d much rather be ashore with her nose permanently buried in a book. But when Scylla the Serpent—the scourge of the sea—appears, quick-thinking Vic saves the ship by thunking the serpent on the head with her trunk full of books. For her bravery she is rewarded with the thing she wants most: a home on a little island. She opens a bookstore, and Landlubber Books becomes the pirates’ favorite port in a storm. As Carrie Clickard’s nimble, jaunty rhymes roll off the tongue like waves onto shore, children will delight in Victricia’s adventures while parents will relate to her family’s attempts to understand their unusual daughter. Victricia may not be a typical pirate hero, but she is the captain of her own destiny in this rollicking tale of self-determination, sticking to your dreams, and the joy of reading
