Okapi Tale

This story about an okapi-talist whose pursuit of profit ravages a community--and the noodle-loving animals who come together to stop him--feels appropriate for October 2020. Packed with puns, delicious food, cute creatures, and heart. Kids and adults alike should give it a read.

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!
