Every summer, Eric and his dad head to the Boundary Waters Canoe Area in northern Minnesota. This year, Eric brought his friend Cris, and the boys want to explore the wilderness on their own. When they set out in their canoe, Cris and Eric promise to return before dark. But shortly into the trip, the river turns violent and Cris is injured. Now, Eric must race against time to find the camp and save his friend.

What are readers saying about Lost?

Lost was one of the best books I’ve ever read. The pictures were awesome and the book made me feel like I was in the forest or in a canoe. If you’re looking for a good book, get the book Lost!”
– Zach, Eden Prairie, MN

“If you came in to my room while I was reading the book Lost and asked me question, I would not answer. I would keep on reading because the book was so good! I really liked the pictures. I liked the enthusiasm of how the author wrote the book. I liked how it was easy to read.”
– Jake, Minnetonka, MN

Justin and Carlos have played on the same baseball team since their T-ball days. But this season, the friends are forced to play on rival teams. Carlos makes new friends on the field, and Justin is left in the dust. When their teams face each other in the final game of the season, Justin and Carlos aren’t even speaking. The game comes down to one run, and Carlos rounds third. What will happen when the former best friends collide at home plate?


 

Praise for the Sports Illustrated Kids Graphic Novels

“I gave this stack of books from Capstone and Sports Illustrated Kids to my own children and they went nuts! They too aren’t into sports, but these aren’t books for jocks. These are extreme sports and the focus is really on the characters and story. The sports hobbies are really just a backdrop. They’re fun and interesting and not at all geared just towards jocky kids.” – Book Legion

Perry the Playmaker has always been the Tigers’ go-to guy — until super-tall and ultra-talented Jason joins the team. Feeding the ball to Jason in the post is a guaranteed two points, but Perry refuses to play nice. Instead, he hogs the ball and takes bad shots, ruining the team’s rhythm. Will Perry’s selfishness spoil the Tigers’ run at the state championship, or will the two talented teens team up to slam dunk the competition?
