Our favorite beautiful French snail is back, ready to pick out a fancy hat and teach us the latest snail dances for the Snailentine's Day party, but an unexpected development sends an "extremely confident but also mildly concerned" Escargot into their shell. Fortunately, it turns out that there's plenty of joie de vivre to go around.

This is a strange, touching, beautiful fable about a boy whose immigrant parents literally, physically shrink with each sacrifice they make to their new country. One of those rare picture books which are sort of more for grownups than they are for children, although children can and should read them.

Bellwether Riggwelter is a sheep who enjoys simple pleasures like blackberries, dancing, and flowers. But the forest is a dangerous place for a kind, soft sheep like him. So Bellwether schemes up the ingenious idea of sewing himself a wolf suit to blend in with the forest's most fearsome predators.What follows is a modern-day folktale about being yourself and standing up against what scares you. This graphic novel is absolutely delightful- the art style, the story, and the twist at the end! You'll never see it coming, and that makes it all the better.
