Cardcaptor Sakura Omnibus volume 1 – The classic CLAMP title for tween girls is back to charm a new generation! Sakura Kinomoto, a fourth grader, finds a strange book in her father’s library. It was made by the wizard Clow to store dangerous spirits sealed away with in a set a magical cards. But all the cards are gone, except for the book’s guardian beast Kero-chan, who charges Sakura with the task of hunting down and capturing the spirits and return them to the book. As a shoujo series, this title will appeal most to girls, but boys can enjoy the action as well. This sits on the borderline at a 12+ rating, but the series really is suited to tween readers. Recommended for middle school libraries and up.
Dragon Puncher Book 1 – As soon as I saw the cover of this title, I knew it had to be a pick for this week. Dragon Puncher, a cute but ruthless kitty in an armored battle suit, is dedicated to defeating dangerous dragons where they may be. With his would-be sidekick Spoony-E, a fuzzy creature armed with a wooden spoon, he confronts a gigantic drooling dragon and ends up in a ridiculous, hilarious brawl. This title combines cartoon art with photographs to create a goofy and unique visual style that kids will love. It skews to the younger side of the scale, so elementary school libraries should give it a serious look, but anyone of any age with a sense of humor will enjoy this goofy backyard adventure.
