New from the creator of the beloved WILDWOOD Series:

Giggle your way to sweet and silly dreams! A simple goodnight routine turns marvelously madcap in this cleverly rhymed picture book.

- A wildly fun read-aloud book for families
- A laugh-out-loud book perfect for any child who struggles with getting ready for bed
- Written by the lead singer of the Decemberists, the silly and clever rhymes make Everyone's Awake fun for both parent and child.

A Real History Lesson for the Upcoming Holiday

 
Countering the prevailing, traditional story of the first Thanksgiving, with its black-hatted, silver-buckled Pilgrims; blanket-clad, be-feathered Indians; cranberry sauce; pumpkin pie; and turkey, this lushly illustrated photo-essay presents a more measured, balanced, and historically accurate version of the three-day harvest celebration in 1621.

Magical Fantasy Middle Reader to Cure End-of-Summer Blues

Adventure, friendship, and magical realism come together in this heartwarming, whimsical story. Perfect for fans of A Snicker of Magic and The Penderwicks.

 

Great for late the late Elementary age kids (or really anyone) who need a dose of magic, thrilling adventure, and heartwarming self-acceptance. Like Neil Gaiman's Stardust, a wonderfully fun book about how the only person you need to worry about impressing is yourself.

" This follow-up to The Boy, the Bird & the Coffin Maker carries just as much heart and charm as Matilda Woods's first novel. The characters, story, and illustrations will dazzle readers."

“You can’t lose with text by Matilda Woods and illustrations by Anuska Allepuz. It’s impossible not to love whatever magical thing they create, and The Girl Who Sailed the Stars is no exception. This book was whimsical and imaginative from page one, and I loved discovering new things alongside the curious and bold Oona—the sea cats are also a delightful part of this universe. Pick this one up as soon as you can!”

New Nonfitcion Picture Book for Young Aristis!

Mary Blair's Unique Flair: The Girl Who Became One of the Disney Legends

 

Even as a child, Mary Blair loved color, and all she wanted to do was to make art. But becoming an artist wasn't easy. Her parents worked hard to provide her paper and paints, and Mary worked hard to enter contests and earn a spot at a school for the arts. She even had to work hard to find her place at the Walt Disney Studios. But Walt was easily impressed by Mary. When she joined his trip to South America, Mary had never seen such color. She collected that color and used it in her concept art for Cinderella, Alice in Wonderland, and Peter Pan, and even the It's a Small World attraction at Disneyland.

 

"A smiling, button-eyed Blair is pictured alongside Cinderella's silver carriage, Alice's upside-down mirror, and Wendy's nursery room window—all projects Blair created concept art for. Lee's art also imitates the bold, blocky figures that Blair designed for It's a Small World, her magnum opus, a ride that fosters goodwill and worldwide peace. This wonderful biography not only shows how Blair has influenced Walt Disney Studios, but it also captures her verve for life and bountiful imagination. Share this one with young, aspiring artists, especially those willing to break the rules."(Reprinted with permission of Booklist, copyright 2019, American Library Association.)

Beautiful and newly modernized Fairy Tale

Tallulah the Tooth Fairy CEO (Hardcover)

 

Hilarious and smart, Tallulah the Tooth Fairy CEO is a modern take on the classic tooth fairy story by Tamara Pizzoli with illustrations by Federico Fabianiis that is perfect for powerful little leaders ready to take on the world—one tooth at a time.

Meet Tallulah. She’s the Tooth Fairy CEO. Tallulah knows practically everything about being a tooth fairy. How to collect teeth. Dispense money. Train other fairies. And it’s all in the Teeth Titans Incorporated Employee Manual.

But when something happens that’s not covered in the manual, what's a fairy to do?

"It’s refreshing to see a woman of color not only represented as a classic fantasy figure, as they are often depicted exclusively as white, but also as a successful businesswoman and entrepreneur . . . Illustrations are smooth and give a sleek modern feel to the piece. A fun, solid addition to contemporary fairy tale collections." –School Library Journal

New From Sleeping Bear Press

A Boy Like You by Frank Murphy

by FRANK MURPHY

There's more to being a boy than sports, feats of daring, and keeping a stiff upper lip. A Boy Like You encourages every boy to embrace all the things that make him unique, to be brave and ask for help, to tell his own story and listen to the stories of those around him. In an age when boys are expected to fit into a particular mold, this book celebrates all the wonderful ways to be a boy.

Publisher's Weekly - A Boy Like You

Reviewed on 1 July 2019

Excerpt: The story is directed squarely at boys, but Harren’s illustrations show representations of all kinds of kids and families. Being a boy can mean many things, Murphy suggests, but being “a smart boy, a brave boy, a kind boy” are the first important steps toward manhood.
