Ignore the cover. Instead, imagine some zany, cutting edge fashion illustration that's been run over by a heavy steel sculpture. This is a funny, sad, unique, and deep novel of the lengths two teens will go to get into a private arts high school. Featuring two authentic teen voices (one male, one female) this is not to be missed!

A gorgeous graphic novel about the power of creativity and escapism...and the dangers that lie within each.

Alvarez’s slim graphic novel will entice fans of Pearson’s Hilda, Over the Garden Wall, and Song of the Sea and leave them begging for another installment.

On a snowy day, Charles and his toboggan set out to find a wish tree. Their quest is more about the journey than the outcome as they help friends along the way and enjoy the beautiful forest. But as night falls, it looks uncertain as to if they'll ever find what they seek. The lovely text of this luminous book begs to be read aloud over and over again; there's a small bit of magic on every page.
