Kids Can Press' graphic novels have been really great, Sam &, Binky, and Tower of Treasure (Three Thieves), and I'm exciting to see new sequels and new series, all in great bindings of course. Yay KCP!
- Big City Otto: Elephants Never Forget by Bill Slavin
- Why has nobody ever thought to make more graphic novels about elephants?
- Luz sees the light by Claudia Davila
- Sign of the Black Rock by Scott Chantler (squee!!! it's the next Three Thieves book!!! It has an exciting cover!!!
- Binky Under Pressure (yayyyyy!!! more Binky!!!)
And of course there are marvelous new picture books from KCP!!
- Let's count to 100 by Masayuki Sebe. Someone asked me for a counting to 100 book several months ago and I couldn't find anything good. Now I need look no further! I read this to my friends at a BYOB party (bring your own book) and they all agreed it was a winner!
- Hocus Pocus by Sylvie Desrosiers (we all loved this one too)
- My name is Elizabeth by Annika Dunklee (fun color scheme!)
- Kitten's Winter by Eugenie Fernandes (we LOVE this series!)
And exciting new nonfiction!
- Biomimicry: inventions inspired by nature by Dora Lee (very cool illustrations)
- Look at that building! by Scot Ritchie (this is the guy who did Follow that map, which is really cool)
Goosebottom Press has a new set in the Thinking Girls Treasury - Dastardly Dames. One of the things I really liked about their princess series was the many "non-standard" princesses they included and I'm pleased to see this set includes some lesser-known women as well.
And some exciting new offerings from Jane Yolen, including Sister Bear a Norse tale, which I'm very excited about and Snow in Summer, a retelling of Snow White set in Appalachia which looks middle grade or teen and has a very lovely cover.
Lots more lovely things in the box, but these are the ones I'm really excited about. Look for in-depth reviews, coming soon!!
