What was it like for his family, having to put up with a five-year-old musical genius? That’s the premise of Young Mozart, a series of newspaper-style comic strips based on the composer’s early years.
The first thing you need to know about Samantha Spinner and the Spectacular Specs is that it’s, in fact, a sequel to another book. The second thing you need to know is that the plot synopsis on the inside flap of the book is almost entirely describing the first book, Samantha Spinner and the Super-Secret Plans, rather than the book you’re currently holding.

In The Girl in the Bay, Kathy Sartori wakes up after a traumatic experience to find that many years have passed, seemingly in the blink of an eye. The world around her has changed drastically, while she remains the same. It’s a story that’s been done many times before, from Rip Van Winkle to Flight of the Navigator.
