I'm finding my words insufficient for describing what Hicks has achieved with this book of poetry, so I'm going to quote Tyrese Coleman: “These poems explore Black femme power and the reclaiming of those harmed bodies...and embracing the nonbinary femme body through a miasma of language and imagery that conjures Christian, Afrofuturist, and Voodoo mysticism; it’s all beautifully visceral and real.”

A magical, wintery adventure filled with fairies dinosaurs, and mustachioed mayhem. Stella is out to prove girls can be explorers too, and maybe break some other misconceptions while she’s at it.

A magnificent ode to the disappearing natural world. The illustrations are absolutely gorgeous, and the intertwining of letters and images has a great effect. The concept is also very appealing for logophiles (such as yours truly).

Poor Pirate Skeleton, he just wants to be whole again! And to teach kids about skeletal anatomy. Cute rhymes, bright colors, and pirates are a winning combination. Added plus: it's a good spooky-time book without being all about Halloween.
