Waiting on Wednesday (66) - The Middle Grade Edition


"Waiting on" Wednesday" is weekly meme hosted over at Breaking the Spine which spotlights upcoming anticipated releases. This week Booker T has picked out a new middle grade book we discovered this past week or so.  He is in love with the cover (and he tends to have good taste).

FROM GOODREADS: A magical story full of humor and heart. Katherine Applegate, Newbery-winning author of "The One and Only Ivan."
For fans of "The Hero s Guide to Saving Your Kingdom" comes an offbeat, comedic spin on the Excalibur legend told from the point of view of a talking dog who wants to be a magician!
Meet Nosewise. He s spunky. He s curious. And he s a dog who can't understand why his pack mates Merlin and Morgana spend all day practicing magic tricks. If it s a trick they want, he's the dog to ask! He can already Sit!, Stay!, and Roll Over!
But there s no way Nosewise is Staying! when his master and best friend, Merlin, is kidnapped. There's nothing Nosewise won't do to get Merlin back, even if it means facing the strange Fae people and their magic-eating worms, or tangling with the mysterious Sword in the Stone. But it may take more than sniffing out a spell to do it!
Nosewise's hilarious escapades and steadfast loyalty get him and his companions through King Arthur's Dark Ages. ""The Wizard's Dog" casts a captivating spell as it carries readers on a quest of legendary proportions.

WHY I'M WAITING:  A magical, talking dog name Nosewise...King Arthur...hilarious escapades.  Sounds like just what I need in a middle grade from time to time.

WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR THIS WEEK?
