A gorgeous and hilarious picture book


about the most unusual breakfast
two children ever ate.
Two sisters sit down for breakfast, and one remembers a really gross
breakfast they once had, and reminds her sister about it. But her little sister
doesnt remember. So then she starts describing all of the really gross things
that were in the worst breakfast they ever had, until all they can picture is a
table piled sky-high with the weirdest, yuckiest, grossest, slimiest, slickest,
stinkiest breakfast two kids can ever have. And then they have a really good
breakfast.
China Miville has won the World Fantasy Award, the Hugo Award, and the Arthur C.

A magical, lyrical picture book


debut from acclaimed composer and
playwright Oren Lavie, illustrated by
beloved German artist Wolf Erlbruch.
One day, a bear awakes to find he has lost something very important:
himself! He sets out into the Fabulous Forest to find himself, using only a
few clues scrawled on a piece of paper: the bear hes looking for is a nice bear;
he is a happy bear; and hes very handsome too! These sound like pretty good
qualities to Bear, and so begins his memorable journey.
As whimsical as Winnie-t he-Pooh and as wryly comic as Klassens
bear who wants his hat back, The Bear Who Wasnt There joins a select
crew of unusual bears who have captured the imaginations of children for
generations.
Oren Lavie is a composer, musician, and playwright. The music video for Her Morning
Elegance was nominated for a Grammy and became a YouTube hit with over thirty
million views.

In Book Three of this acclaimed YA


series, Oryon Small transforms into Kim,
an Asian American girl who must learn
to separate body image from self-worth.
Changers should appeal to a broad demographic. Teenagers, after all, are
the worlds leading experts on trying on, and then promptly discarding, new
identities.New York Times Book Review
In Book Three of the groundbreaking Changers series, Oryon Small
awakens as Kim, an Asian American girl who looks nothing like she
expected or desired.
Where Changers Book One: Drew dealt primarily with issues of gender
and bias, and Changers Book Two: Oryon explored issues concerning race and
bigotry, Changers Book Three: Kim tackles the thorny, less straightforward
subjects of body shaming, self-esteem, grief, and how the expectations of
the outside world cant help but color the way we see ourselves.
T Cooper is the author of four novels, including the best-selling Lipshitz Six, or Two Angry

Blondes.

Allison Glock- Cooper is the author of the New York Times notable book and Whiting

A childrens picture book that explores


cultural and gender difference through the
eyes of a five-year-old South Asian boy.
In this beautiful childrens picture book by Vivek Shraya, author of the
acclaimed God Loves Hair, a five-year-old South Asian boy becomes
fascinated with his mothers bindi, the red dot commonly worn by Hindu
women to indicate the point at which creation begins, and wishes to have
one of his own. Rather than chastise her son, she agrees to it, and teaches
him about its cultural significance, allowing the boy to discover the magic
of the bindi, which in turn gives him permission to be more fully himself.
Beautifully illustrated by Rajni Perera, The Boy & the Bindi is a joyful
celebration of gender and cultural difference.
Vivek Shraya is a writer, musician, performer, and filmmaker. His body of work includes

twelve albums, four short films, and four books which include God Loves Hair, She of the
Mountains, and even this page is white. He has read and performed at shows, festivals, and
post-secondary institutions internationally. He lives in Toronto.

Rajni Perera is a Sri Lankan-born artist whose internationally showcased work floats
between Western and immigrant culture. She lives in Toronto, Ontario.

The sequel to Vertical: a dramatic and


emotional skateboarding novel for
middle school readers.
True Vert picks up where Vertical left off, though True Vert also stands on its
own quite well. In this coming-of-age story, fifteen-year-old Josh Lowman
earns a spot as a pro skateboarder on the Alpha Dog Skate Kru team. With
the help of washed-up skate legend Dave McSteel, Josh pushes the limits of
whats humanly possible on a skateboard.
Every kid in America who skates dreams of being sponsored, and the
experience transforms Josh. Hes living the dream, hes cool, an Alpha Dog
skater; but he starts to lose focus on the things that truly matter. His goal is
to impress Erin, but hes so caught up in the pro skater thing that Erin and
the rest of his old friends dont want to be around him. And hes not sure if
his new friends are even friends at all.
Dirk Davies, the ambitious owner of Alpha Dog Skate Company, isnt
satisfied. Hungry for even more corporate sponsors, Dirk persuades Josh to
skate the most treacherous ramp of all, and now Josh has to decide what hes
willing to risk to maintain his spot on the Alpha Dog team.
True Vert offers a glimpse into the dog-eat-dog world of professional
skateboarding and takes the reader along for a wild ride as Josh discovers
that it takes as much courage to drop into the Mega Ramp as it does to stay
true to oneself.

cultural norms as a hip-hop performer in full effect. But in truth, shes a
nerdy flat-chested nobody who lives with her Gujarati immigrant parents
on the remote Hawaiian island of Molokai, isolated from her high school
peers by the unsettling norms of Indian culture, where husband is God.
Her parents traditionally arranged marriage is a sham. Her dad turns to
her for all his needseven the intimate ones. When Rani catches him two-
timing with a woman barely older than herself, she feels like a widow and,
like widows in India are often made to do, she shaves off her hair. Her sexy
bald head and hard-d riving rhyming skills attract the attention of Mark, the
hot older customer who frequents her parents store and is closer in age to
her dad than to her. Mark makes the moves on her and Rani goes with it. He
leads Rani into 4eva Flowin, an underground hip hop crewa nd into other
things shes never done. Rani ignores the red flags. Her naive choices look
like they will undo her but ultimately give her the chance to discover her
strengths and restore the things she thought shed lost, including her mother.

streets of Newark. How far can he run?
Where can he hide?

Ahgottahandleonit

What is innocence? Where does it go?


Tim is an undiagnosed dyslexic in an inner-city Newark high school. Hes
got good street cred, riffing strange rap-rhymes and running like the wind.
Hes packed into a three-flat with his mother, sister, and Uncle Gentrale. His
father, a drunk, recently walked out on the family, wanting some freedom,
saying, Ahgottahandleonit, son. He doesnt. Neither does Tim. Hes a
sophomore, already two years behind in school. Hell be a sophomore again
if he doesnt pass his proficiency exam. He wants to do what is right, but
anger boils deep inside him. The last day of school before summer, Tim slaps
Mr. Jones, the one teacher who has wanted to help. He doesnt know why.
It was just there, a rage born of some dark history. Uncle Gentrale tries to
explain, some crazy shit about living back down south. Marie reaches out to
him for love, but that doesnt work either. In a fight with some gangbangers,
the rage boils over and Tim slams Chucky in the head with a rock. Chucky
dies. Tim steals his phone. He carries it, like an albatross, throughout the
summerwanting to run, to hide, to speak the truth, to be free. Maybe Mr.
Jones will understand. Tim wants his life to matter.

Joe Hayess mother knows how to


stretch the familys budget nearly as
well as Joe stretches the truth.
Kids today grow up knowing all about recycling. But when Joe Hayes was a
kid, recycling hadnt been invented. Money was so tight for Joes family that
they had to be inventive about using and reusing everything. They didnt call
it recycling, they called it making do. Joe says his family was dirt-poor. In
fact, he says, they lived in a wide-open stretch of played-out land where even
the dirt was broke, so impoverished that all anyone could manage to get out
of it was beans. Beans and more beans, thats all folks grew and thats all folks
ate. So imagine the familys delight when Joes father turned up one day with
a big, fat hambone! There was rejoicing all over the place, especially at the
dinner table that night. Joes mother was determined to make that bone last
as long as she possibly could. As thrifty as she was, she would have done just
that except the neighbors got wind of the bones arrival. Being neighborly,
she just had to share that bone. Thats when this tall tale gets even taller.
Joe Hayes is such a stylish raconteur that kids cant resist listening to him. Like that

A gorgeous, graphically compelling


retelling of Hans Christian Andersens
classic story of love and fate by
award-winning printmaker JooHee Yoon.
The Steadfast Tin Soldieris the first story Andersen wrote without a folktale
source or literary model, so it stands as a completely original work of the
imagination, which changed the fairytale genre for all time.
There were once five-and-twenty tin soldiers. They were all brothers,
born of the same old tin spoon. . . . All looked exactly alike except one. He
looked a little different as he had been cast last of all. The tin was short, so
he had only one leg. . . . But just you see, hell be the remarkable one.
So begins Andersens classic tale of good and evil; purity and personality;
fate and grace. In this boldly-illustrated contemporary retelling, Yoon takes
on the harshness and poignancy of the story, leaving readers with the sense
that nothing is ever lostit just changes shape and continues anew.
JooHee Yoon is an illustrator and printmaker committed to the art of bookmaking.

She enjoys combining illustration with design and using both traditional and industrial
printing techniques. Rather than a single approach, she tries to match the tone of each
project. She strives to create picture books that work on many levels and can be enjoyed
by people of all ages.

A cat obsessed by mice spends his


days indoors thinking about them with
fear, anticipation, and longing!

One day a blind child asks an


adult, what color is the wind?
A mysterious question, providing good
companionship and many answers.

It seems fair to say that there have never been as many mice in any book as
there are in this one! This may well be because the protagonist, a singular
and most ambitious cat, has promised himself that by the age of eighteen
he will have imagined ONE MILLION MICE! Every stripe of mouse is
imagined here, except for onet he most mysterious mouse!
Giovanna Zoboli is a writer and publisher. In 2004, together with Paolo Canton, she
founded Topipittori.
Lisa DAndrea lives and works in Padua. She spent her childhood in northern Italy and
has devoted herself to drawing and painting ever since.

28

A blind child questions all he encountersa dog, wolf, elephant, mountain,


bird, stream, and treeabout the color of the wind. Each responds
differently, with a shape, color, smell, texture, or idea. Each page displays
a visual and tactile palette of cutouts, textures, and colors. It is a sensory
experience that makes the invisible experiential, ending with the wind,
as the pages fly.
A graduate of the Academy of Fine Arts in Brussels, Anne Herbauts expresses an
original world in each of her books. Awake to the richness of the world, endlessly curious,

As anti-gun and pro-vegetarian as


you can get, The Happy Hunter is
a beautiful, heartfelt story about
communing with animals.

The first edition of this magnificent,


graphically original book from Franois
was first published in the United States
in 1958.

One fine day, Mr. Bobbin dons his hunting outfit and heads into the forest.
Fully equipped and ready, hes forgotten one thingt hat hes a hunter
who cannot hunt because of his great love of animals. Curiously, this is a
true story. When first published (1961), the real happy hunter had been
hunting for 25 years.

A book about a little boy with a huge imagination. The marvel and
enchantment of this story is its revelation of the mind as it belongs only to
the world of children. Existing without the prejudices of their parents and
the firm belief that the world must be a certain way, children live in a fluid
zone between reality and imagination, where everything is possible.

Roger Duvoisin was born in Switzerland and came to the US in 1925. He wrote and
illustrated forty books, and illustrated over 100 more by other authors. He received the
Caldecott Medal in 1947 for White Snow, Bright Snow and a Caldecott Honor in 1966 for
Hide and Seek Fog.

Andr Franois was a French graphic designer and illustrator, who lived in New York
City for a time and did many covers for The New Yorker. He also studied with Picasso and
created many cartoons and picture books. Little Boy Brown (1949) was his first picture
book to be published in the US.

A story about an unusual friendship


and the very different parts of
ourselves that make us who we are.

Here is the real question: after reading


this book, will you ever be able to look
at words in the same way again?

A surprising book that is also a little scary and more than a little deep,
Margarash is about a young boy and a seemingly-nasty monster who realize
they need each other.

The final book in Michal Escoffier and Kris Di Giacomos surprising,


zany, and clever wordplay trilogy (Take Away the A, Wheres the Baboon?),
here you will find ridiculously delightful art, an engaging narrative, and
wordplay that will keep even preschoolers deeply engaged. Because its truly
enticing when questions themselvesWill the PIGeon be chased?have
answers in them already (PIG)!

With three balls of wool and lots of


ingenuity, a mother gets down to work
and sparks a small revolution.

Intelligently illustrated to reveal precisely


how a young pre-literate child might see
words before learning how to read them.

In search of a place where every child can go to school, a family moves from
Fascist Portugal to Communist Czechoslovakia. But different as their new
country is, it is far from as free as they had hoped for. In their new, gray
world, the lack of basic freedom is felt in the simplest things, such as the
colors they can choose to wear.

A child who has not yet learned how to read looks out at the world and sees
language as such a child would: as lines and squiggles that dont exactly
make pictures but dont seem to make anything else either. Then, when the
child starts to go to school and begins to learn his letters, his way of seeing
begins to change.
