NEW! Martha’s Sweater
A dog in a sweater? Not on Martha’s watch. But what can she do when Grandma Lucille presents her with a neatly knitted pullover? Desperate to rid herself from woolly embarrassment, Martha sets out to prove that no sweater can withstand the rugged lifestyle of a dog.
NEW! The Mystery of the Missing Dinosaur
T.D.’s day starts like any other: getting on a bus and riding it to the end of the line. But when he passes by a toy that looks suspiciously like one he used to own, he’s pulled into a mystery that even he couldn’t dream up. Who’s behind this game of a boy and his missing plastic dinosaur?

NEW! We’re Powerless!
A blackout in Wagstaff City renders Helen, T.D. and Truman incapable of playing their favorite videogame, Multi-‐‐Dimensional Intergalactic Kleine Nachtgopher Attack Four.
