    Really Raoulino by Dina Fischbein - Hardcover Illustrated

    Animal Incognitum reads the sign over Raoulino's cage at the Metropolitan Zoo. That means no one knows what kind of animal Raoulino is, least of all Raoulino. He does know that he wants to go home—home to the wonderful little island where he was captured. And his neighbors in the zoo, the cobra and the chuckwalla and the lizard in the next cage, dream of going back to their respective homes. Has any animal (to say nothing of four at one time) ever escaped from the Metropolitan Zoo? There are those who might say it couldn't be done, but where a touch of magic is involved, anything is possible!

    In a heart stopping, thrill-a-minute fantasy adventure, Raoulino and his friends discover that while who you are is important, it is what is in your heart that really counts.

  • Windows by Julia Denos - Hardcover Illustrated

    Windows by Julia Denos - Hardcover Illustrated

    Walking his dog at dusk, one boy catches glimpses of the lives around him in this lovely ode to autumn evenings, exploring your neighborhood, and coming home.

    This picture book is its own kind of window, the turning of its pages its own kind of stroll through the evening. And back again, to where we belong, to home.New York Journal of Books

    A boy walking his dog at twilight watches as windows blink to life, like ‘a neighborhood of paper lanterns,” revealing the early-evening comforts of coming home. Luminous.People

    Mixed-media art is at once detailed and atmospheric, the sky darkening from orangy glow to black over the course of 32 pages that trace a nightly ritual from inside and out.—San Francisco Chronicle

    Before your city goes to sleep, you might head out for a walk, your dog at your side as you go out the door and into the almost-night. Anything can happen on such a walk: you might pass a cat, or a friend, or even an early raccoon. And as you go down your street and around the corner, the windows around you light up one by one until you are walking through a maze of paper lanterns, each one granting you a brief, glowing snapshot of your neighbors as families come together and folks settle in for the night. With a setting that feels both specific and universal and a story full of homages to The Snowy Day, Julia Denos and E. B. Goodale have created a singular book — at once about the idea of home and the magic of curiosity, but also about how a sense of safety and belonging is something to which every child is entitled.

    Julia Denos's (Swatch) second-person text invites the reader to be an active participant in this pleasing book...E.B. Goodale brings her very own Somerville to brilliant life in her first picture book, using ink, watercolor, letterpress and digital collage. Each page is awash with the colors of dusk as the sun slowly sets until, finally, "you arrive home again, and you look at your window from the outside. Someone you love is waving at you, and you can't wait to go in."

    The Littlest Viking by Alexandra Penfold - Hardcover Illustrated

    A hilarious story about what happens to the littlest and loudest Viking when an even littler and louder Viking arrives, perfect for fans of The Princess and the Pony and I Don't Want to Be a Frog.

    Sven might be the littlest Viking, but he has no trouble making himself known. He has the loudest warrior cry and the fiercest set of teeth. He loves to pillage and plunder. But there's a new kid in town--a warrior princess, who is smaller than Sven and even louder. What's a little Viking to do?

    "Penfold folds in fun ancient analogues to tried-and-true methods of appeasing cranky little ones, and Roxas's liberal use of a color perhaps best described as neon snot brings a punk edge to her scenes of Viking family life. Irreverent yet tender."--Publishers Weekly, Starred review

    "A warm tale of family togetherness."--Kirkus

    Wonder by R. J. Palacio : Now a Major Motion Picture - Hardcover Fiction

    NOW A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE STARRING JULIA ROBERTS, OWEN WILSON, AND JACOB TREMBLAY!

    Over 6 million people have read the #1 New York Times bestseller WONDER and have fallen in love with Auggie Pullman, an ordinary boy with an extraordinary face. 

    The book that inspired the Choose Kind movement.

    I won't describe what I look like. Whatever you're thinking, it's probably worse. 

    August Pullman was born with a facial difference that, up until now, has prevented him from going to a mainstream school. Starting 5th grade at Beecher Prep, he wants nothing more than to be treated as an ordinary kid—but his new classmates can’t get past Auggie’s extraordinary face. WONDER, now a #1 New York Times bestseller and included on the Texas Bluebonnet Award master list, begins from Auggie’s point of view, but soon switches to include his classmates, his sister, her boyfriend, and others. These perspectives converge in a portrait of one community’s struggle with empathy, compassion, and acceptance. 

    "Wonder is the best kids' book of the year," said Emily Bazelon, senior editor at Slate.com and author of Sticks and Stones: Defeating the Culture of Bullying and Rediscovering the Power of Character and Empathy. In a world where bullying among young people is an epidemic, this is a refreshing new narrative full of heart and hope. R.J. Palacio has called her debut novel “a meditation on kindness” —indeed, every reader will come away with a greater appreciation for the simple courage of friendship. Auggie is a hero to root for, a diamond in the rough who proves that you can’t blend in when you were born to stand out.

    The King's Stilts by Dr. Seuss - Hardcover Classic Seuss

    A seventy-five-year-old King gets new vintage cover art for his anniversary!

    Celebrate the 75th birthday of Dr. Seuss's classic treatise on the importance of a balanced life with our Anniversary Edition featuring cover art from the books original publication! A Seussian spin on a conventional fairy tale, The King's Stilts is as topical today as when it was first published in 1939. It's the story of a devoted king who works hard and plays hard—and whose entire kingdom is threatened when his beloved stilts are stolen and he is too distraught to do his job. Written in prose instead of rhyme (unlike Seuss's later works), The King's Stilts nevertheless addresses subjects that we know Dr. Seuss was passionate about throughout his life: duty (as in Horton Hears a Who and Horton Hatches the Egg); the abuse of power (as in The 500 Hats of Bartholomew Cubbins and Yertle the Turtle); deceit (as in The Bippolo Seed and How the Grinch Stole Christmas)--and even cats (as in The Cat in the Hat and I Can Lick 30 Tigers Today)! A perfect way to introduce new readers to an old classic, or to reward existing fans with a collectible new edition. Follow the Good Doctor's advice: After a hard day of work, have fun with a great book like The King's Stilts!

    The Cay by Theodore Taylor - Hardcover USED Like New

    This award-winning novel remains a powerful classic of prejudice, love, and survival. In 1942, 11-year-old Phillip Enright lives with his parents on the Dutch island of Curaçao, but when the war moves too close for comfort, his mother decides to travel with him back to the safety of Virginia. When their boat is torpedoed, however, Phillip is blinded and finds himself adrift on a life raft with an old black man and a cat. They eventually land on a deserted island. Phillip is suspicious of "the large Negro," but soon grows to trust--and ultimately love--the patient and generous Timothy. Dedicated to "Dr. King's Dream," The Cay has a clear message that friendship is colorblind; it is also a terrific adventure story of a young, newly blinded man learning to survive on an uninhabited island. --Richard Farr

    Review

    "The illustrations in this story are authentic and engaging." —Kids Yoga Stories blog

    "Though more complex than the other children's books we had read about India, my daughter was fascinated with these eight tales and their beautiful illustrations—especially Ravana, the ten-headed rakshasa. Though I suspect some of the themes of the stories went over her head, it wasn't unusual for me to catch her reading this book after tucking her in for the night." —Africa to America blog

    "…the illustrations are fun and go with the stories. The book has eight stories in it. They range from this fun mathematical tale [Munna and the Grain of Rice] to ones about the gods and so much more. Many have lessons and are fun to read." —Crafty Moms Share blog

    "They take us on a journey so that each story almost flows onto the next like a chapter book, but each story can also be read in any order." —Castle View Academy blog
