Einstein the class hamster is from a long line of class hamsters. He knows lots of cool facts about science, art, and history—maybe even more than their sleepy teacher, Ms. Moreno. The class has a chance to compete in a trivia game show contest. But how can they get ready for the contest if Ms. Moreno keeps taking naps instead of teaching? More important, how can Einstein help the class prepare for the contest when the only kid who can hear him is Ned? Janet and Jake Tashjian, the team behind My Life as a Book, team up again in this hilarious illustrated chapter book series starring the lovable walking encyclopedia, game show–obsessed Einstein. This title has Common Core connections.

Janet and Jake Tashijan, the author and illustrator team behind the My Life series, deliver a hilarious sequel to the illustrated chapter book Einstein the Class Hamster. We follow Ms. Moreno's class as they face off against the students of Crackerjack Elementary on the hit game show Kids Know Stuff. But when Principal Decker sneaks Twinkles the python into the studio, there's widespread panic; the show's host is afraid of snakes and walks off the set. Now is Einstein's chance to shine! With the assistance of a sound engineer who can also hear Einstein, Ned and Marlon help Einstein get ready to host the show and save the day. But something goes wrong. Does Einstein have... STAGE FRIGHT? Oh no! Ned and Marlon must find a way to help Einstein and win the game show in Einstein the Class Hamster and the Very Real Game Show. “Jake Tashjian's manic, kid-scrawled spot illustrations have an energy that matches Einstein's, and there's an abundance of humor (generally goofy or gross-out) in both his artwork and in Janet Tashjian's writing.” —Publishers Weekly “A kinder, gentler Wimpy Kid with all the fun and more plot.” —Kirkus Reviews, starred review, on 'My Life as a Book'

This fun, illustrated series is perfect for middle-grade and reluctant readers. Praise for Sticker Girl Rules the School: “Latina Martina Rivera and white best friend, Bev, open a new packet of magic stickers featuring Craig, their trusted cupcake companion (the only original sticker to return). . . . With nods to her Latin-American upbringing, the story respectfully portrays a close-knit family consisting of an annoying older brother, caring parents, curious toddler brother, knowing abuelita, and other extended family. . . . Readers will want to stick with future episodes of this a-PEEL-ling and accessible series.” —Kirkus Reviews Praise for Sticker Girl: "Tashjian (the Einstein the Class Hamster series) sympathetically portrays the fears that can derail an otherwise confident girl like Marti, whose emotional journey is both realistic and humorous. . . . Newcomer Wilmink’s emoji-cute illustrations . . . play well with the upbeat tone of this satisfying series kickoff." —Publishers Weekly A Christy Ottaviano Book Read the whole series!

After creating a controversial and hugely popular website, teenager Josh Swensen becomes trapped inside his brilliant creation and must find a way to remain anonymous. I am lying on my bed doing my homework in Greek and Latin roots for Advanced English. 'Ped' for foot, 'homo' for man, 'nym' for name. I sit with the dictionary in front of me, coming up with as many words as I can to complete the assignment. Pedestrian, homicide, pseudonym . . . I have more than thirty of them. By accident -- that's always how these life-changing things happen -- I connect two halves that don't seem like a word until I look it up. 'Pseudo', false; and 'cide,' to kill = pseudocide. To pretend to kill (yourself). I stare at the word for a good long time. Homicide, suicide, genocide: these are words you can find in the newspaper every day. But pseudocide . . . now here was something different. My mind wanders from my homework to the blue cotton threads of my bedspread. Pseudocide. A way to start again as someone completely new, a way to burn the old self and try on a new one. Josh Swensen isn't your average teenager - when he observes America, he sees a powerhouse of consumerism and waste. He's even tried to do something about it, with his start-up controversial website. But when Josh rises to messiah status of the internet world, he discovers that greed and superficiality are not easily escaped. Trapped inside his own creation, Josh feels his only way out is to stage his death and be free of his internet alter-ego, "Larry." But this plan comes with danger, and soon Josh finds himself cut off from the world, with no one to turn to for help. In this suspenseful young adult novel, Janet Tashjian has written a probing tour-de-force.
