I love Kadir Nelson’s artwork. He’s done some of my favorite New Yorker covers lately, and this book is a shining example of his ability to tell a great story through imagery. The allegory presented is simple but beautiful, and it’s a good lesson leading into a new school year. I also feel like the book is timely for the peak of summer harvests.
Think a group of costumed kids can't scare Darth Vader? In the words of the iconic Sith Lord, I find your lack of faith disturbing. Adam Rex's impeccable comedic timing makes this book a laugh-out-loud joy from start to finish (and yes, more than one Porter Square bookseller was literally laughing out loud).
Now he is looking for a new friend…beware!
One of the funniest books I've ever read, and ust in time for the new Jurassic Park movie.
This stunning, lovely book is certain to be a family favorite no matter what ages your family spans. A certain Caldecott contender!
In this beautiful book, Julian imagines himself a mermaid. His Abuela sees him as he sees himself.
When their grandmother disappears, two children venture into an alternate realm to find her. This riveting story is inspired by Korean folklore and told through the medium of comics. With colorful illustrations, engaging characters, and the right mix of tension and humor, it is certain to become a story time favorite.
In this magical yet ordinary story, a little girl searches for fairies in her backyard. While she may never see one, sometimes hints are enough. The vivid, jewel-tone illustrations are full of patterns and details that beg to be pored over. With a simple rhyming text and lush, layered illustrations, this book is certain to be a favorite reread at bedtimes!
