Child-eating witches, clever girls...and a house on chicken legs! An adventure for graphic-novel loving kids and those who enjoy remixed fairytales and folklore.

[Note: Yes, I wrote this book, but I'm staff picking it as a December birthday present to myself and my grandmother, and in honor of her memory (the book is dedicated to her, and she did get to see it before she died). I was due to be born on my grandmother's birthday and she died the night before mine. She was the daughter of a bookstore owner, and grew up in the shop. Her love of books is one of her greatest gifts to me.]

Published: Knopf Books for Young Readers - August 11th, 2020

What makes a home? In this beautiful picture book, Wahl explores the emotional arc of moving. But her story goes beyond the simple act of packing and leaving: the child and their father are pushed out of their home due to gentrification, and their family is just the two of them. Though a subject many authors have dealt with, The Blue House is a creative, alternative way of looking at moving. Warm, welcoming, and lovely!
