And of course Ryan is facing these new challenges and new experiences in her classic style -- with a bright outlook and plenty of spirit!

Delightfully Different Dilly
by Elizabeth Dale
When Dilly is born, her parents think she is perfect - from the top of her head to the bottom of her foot. The other babies notice that Dilly is different but soon accept her and love her different ways of doing things. The adults aren't sure though - they love how all the penguins are the same.
Can the younger generation convince their parents that there's space for Dilly? And maybe that positive change can be a good thing? A charming and touching story - Dilly is a delightful character with a strong voice and a great tale of acceptance and change.

The Genius Square
Roll The Dice & Race Your Opponent To Complete The Square!
The aim of each of the 62,208 possible puzzles is to complete the square using the nine coloured shapes, once the seven ‘blockers’ have been positioned. There may be times when it seems impossible, but there will ALWAYS be at least one solution… and that’s why it’s called The Genius Square! An all-around fun multiplayer game for the family to race against each other and determine the true genius. The Genius Square can be played as a single player too, whether to gain practice, enjoy your own company, or to educate on spatial awareness.
