Description


Celebrated author and illustrator Henry Cole uses stunningly detailed black-and-white artwork to illuminate a tale of friendship between an adventurous mouse and a boy who would become one of America’s greatest presidents.

Celeste is hundreds of miles from home following an unexpected journey aboard a Mississippi steamboat. After mishaps and disasters, she finds herself on the frontier in southern Indiana. It's 1822, and Celeste meets a tall, lanky boy wielding an ax: a young Abraham Lincoln.

The journey reveals the harsh realities of frontier life for the Lincoln family. But with the help of Celeste’s new woodland animal friends and some creativity, she may just prove that even the littlest creatures can make a big difference. And it’s in losing her way that Celeste finds herself in a place she never expected—home, finally.

“Evocative illustrations, compelling characters, and thoughtful reflections on the nature of home combine to powerful effect.” —Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“A rare gift: a novel with artwork as whole and vital as a picture book’s.” —Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

Praise For…


Praise for A NEST FOR CELESTE: “With a twist of a pencil nub and a turn of a phrase, Henry Cole brings Audubon to life on the page; the story of tender Celeste will charm the naturalist and fantasist alike.”
— Gregory Maguire, author of Wicked and Matchless

“Evocative illustrations, compelling characters, and thoughtful reflections on the nature of home combine to powerful effect.”
— Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“A rare gift: a novel with artwork as whole and vital as a picture book’s.”
— Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

“The softly shaded pencil drawings bring the story to life through Cole’s exceptional ability to imbue animals with personality.”
— ALA Booklist

PRAISE FOR BRAMBLEHEART: “Cole’s black-and-white pencil drawings are earnest yet emotionally sharp. Nestled in a small trim size, this is an appealing and accessible genre blend.”
— Kirkus Reviews

“Fantasies wrapped around the secret, almost human world of woodland animals are eaten up by young readers. Throw another fantastical animal into the mix-a dragon-and there are sure to be plenty more kids who will buy in.”
— ALA Booklist

“Twig is what all heroes - large and small - should be: charming, courageous, and kind. Delightful!”
— Lisa Fiedler, Author of The Mouseheart Trilogy and Stage-Struck
