Thank you for your recent interest in our Middle Grade title, 7th Grade Revolution. Because we value librarians, especially the Library Works Subscribers, we offer a 25% discount to librarians on all Vesuvian Books titles.

Finalist in Children's Fiction for the 2018 International Book Awards, 7th Grade Revolution is a fast-paced adventure inspired by an actual classroom experience, weaving in historical elements as clues that help the kids solve the mystery to save their school.

“Gr 5-8. A fun ride that combines treasure hunting, quick thinking, Revolutionary-era U.S. history, and teamwork … reads like a National Treasure and Spy Kids movie combined. It has twists and turns. One of the novel’s huge strengths is the kids banding together; in addition, each character has the opportunity to show individual skills and to grow as a person … Suggested for general purchase for middle school collections, especially for adventure-loving patrons.” ~ School Library Journal
"The story explores friendship and teamwork through these students, each from different situations and backgrounds, who bond over fighting for their school and following clues to treasure. The extreme circumstances allow them a chance to see each other in a new light, to trust each other, and to understand each other. The characters focused on are mainly Rhonda and Dennis, but several other characters are included throughout, each playing a key role in either the fight against the FBI or searching for the treasure as each uses their skills to uncover secrets. With stunning illustrations, 7th Grade Revolution is a treasure hunting adventure exploring themes of friendship, growing up, teamwork, and history." ~ 5-Star review from Readers' Favorite

The Royal Order of Fighting Dragons
by Dan Elish

Born to Fight?

Ike Rupert Hollingsberry is haunted by the past because complete strangers won't let him forget when his famous father died on the set of The Fighting Dragons, a cult favorite that still has people talking.

But when he's attacked by a large locust, like the one that killed his dad, Ike is helped by the geekiest nerd of all, Elmira Hand.

Killing the giant locust was only the beginning of the surprises in store for Ike as he is whisked away from New York City to an isolated Florida compound to assume his role as the next in line to lead the Royal Order of the Fighting Dragons—that are NOT supposed to exist—and learns his dad’s death was a cover-up for a far greater purpose...

“… destined to be a kid-pleasing classic. Readers will be captivated as Ike is drawn into the mysterious and dangerous world … I dare any fan of Harry Potter, Roald Dahl, Wonder Woman, Superman—any rollicking adventure story—to pick up The Royal Order of Fighting Dragons and not get hooked.” ~ Deborah Heiligman, Award-winning author of Vincent and Theo

The Journal of Angela Ashby
by Liana Gardner


A Middle Grade “Death Note”

“With great power comes great responsibility.” ~Voltaire

I have great power.
That’s what she told me. The old fortune-teller at the school carnival.
I thought I was doing the right thing … with the magic journal she gave me.
But nothing could prepare me for what happened next.
Or, for what I unleashed.

At a school carnival, a mysterious fortune-teller gives twelve-year-old Angela Ashby a journal and warns her to use it wisely. Nothing prepares Angela for the journal’s power—when she pours her heart onto its pages her desires come true.

She tests the journal by conjuring a gnome, a unicorn, and a farting fairy and then uses it to stop the school bullies in their tracks. But the unintended consequences alienate her best friend and puts her favorite teacher in danger of losing her job.

After she shares her deepest desire of all—that her parents get back together—her adversary steals the journal, and Angela fears she will use it to bring mayhem to the entire school if she doesn’t get it back.
