New releases for week of Sept. 9

  There’s a little bit of everything for readers this week.
  Actress Jamie Lee Curtis and Laura Cornell team up for another children’s book, this one titled “Big Words for Little People.” The latest addition in the “Books to Grow By” series “helps little people communicate in a big person’s world,” with words such as cooperate, considerate and persevere.
  "The Maze of Bones" is the first book in "The 39 Clues" mystery series geared toward kids. The books will be written by various authors, the first by "Lightning Thief" writer Rick Riordan, and the series will have a host of multimedia components. The books are being released by the publisher of the "Harry Potter" series, and Steven Spielberg already has purchased the film rights. I’m sure we’ll be hearing more about these books in the future.
  For those wanting something a little more grown up, there are of course some political books coming out: Barack Obama’s paperback “Change We Can Believe In: Barack Obama’s Plan to Renew America’s Promise”; “Bob Schieffer’s America” by Bob Schieffer; and “The War Within: A Secret White House History 2006-2008, Vol. 4” by Bob Woodward.
  Also hitting shelves this week: “Hot, Flat, and Crowded” by Thomas L. Friedman; “The Stowaway (Stone of Tymora, Book 1)” by Geno Salvatore and R.A. Salvatore; and “Ballistics: Poems” by Billy Collins.
