On a snowy day, Charles and his toboggan set out to find a wish tree. Their quest is more about the journey than the outcome as they help friends along the way and enjoy the beautiful forest. But as night falls, it looks uncertain as to if they'll ever find what they seek. The lovely text of this luminous book begs to be read aloud over and over again; there's a small bit of magic on every page.

Chilling, haunting, and hopeful, this book will resonate with readers long after they’ve closed the cover.

This book does follow the alphabet's progressive order but in a unique, clever, and humorous fashion, most logical to a child. Kalman's distinctive illustrations of objects hand-selected from the Cooper Hewitt Museum are the cherry on top of this artistic, alphabetical oddity.

Published: Chronicle Books - August 30th, 2016

In this brilliant book about perception, we see a cat from the point of view of a series of animals, from a boy to a fish to a bat. Each view is beautifully rendered, the media and style capturing the unique view of each animal. Reminiscent of Eric Carle yet decidedly original, Wenzel’s sparse, poetic text and stunning illustrations make They All Saw a Cat one of the year’s best picture books.
