As a bookseller, I read a lot of books. I’ve read a whole heap of staff-pick-able ones in the past few months. But this little aliebn has stayed with me since July; I've read and re-read it and found something new every time. Funny, poignant, and earnest, this book about a lonely alien his animal friends offers plenty of insight on what it means to be human.

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!

Simply magnificent! Tan gives small snippets of Grimm's fairy tales, each accompanied by a photograph of an exquisite sculpture. The pairings are dark, stunning, and utterly brilliant. With introductions by Neil Gaiman and Jack Zipes, not to mention lists of additional resources, this is a treasure for any fairy tale fan and is destined to be poured over again and again. A masterpiece!

A novel about a young woman who is asked to paint a reproduction of one of the stolen paintings from the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, although questions arise about how her copy may be related to the stolen original. The writing about art is absolutely breathtaking, and there are a few subplot threads that intersect and weave together a gorgeous narrative.
