Longlisted for the Booker Prize, this debut novel manages to tell an almost unbearably sad story in a lyrical, compelling and beautiful way. The story is narrated by a number of characters who have all been affected by the tragedy in different ways, but who all must understand, accept and move on with their lives.

$19.99

Published: Candlewick Press (MA) - October 14th, 2014

This clever, wordless book is filled with beautiful before and after illustrations. Some are simple: wheat turns to bread, a flock of sheep is then a ball of yarn. Others are more complex: a cow in a pasture becomes a bottle of milk, but pull away and that same cow becomes a painting.  Some of the scenarios will make you smile, some will make you wonder, all will delight.  Read this with your children (4 and up) and be prepared to discuss and to answer questions. This is one that adults will enjoy as much as kids.

I'm a big fan of short stories, so for my pick of the decade I went with the master, Alice Munro.  These nine tender, honest stories capture the inner lives of ordinary people that are made to seem extraordinary.  With beautiful details, Munro is brilliant at describing the deepest of human emotions, while the plots twist in unexpected directions.  Read it and you'll understand why she won the Nobel Prize.
