9780763655983I Want My Hat Back by Jon Klassen

“If you have never owned a hat, you might not know how much work goes into protecting hats from covetous woodland critters. Jon Klassen, however, clearly understands the perils of this age-old problem. And so he has helpfully (and hilariously) brought the story of one particular hat-loving bear to the page as a cautionary tale for us all. Stylish readers of all ages will simply adore this bear’s deteminedly persistent yet decidedly courteous quest to reclaim his missing topper.” – Meghan

9781681197784How to Be a Pirate by Isaac Fitzgerald, illus by Brigette Barrager

“Be brave! Be quick! Be independent! Be fun! O-AHOY, what joy it is to be a pirate! I absolutely love this heartwarming picture book about intergenerational storytelling, family, and building self confidence. How to Be a Pirate is an ideal storytime read– funny, sweet, action-packed, and beautifully illustrated, CeCe and Grandpa’s adventures will delight readers, young and old.” – Eugenia

9781324005193The Old Truck by Jarrett & Jerome Pumphrey

“Full of nostalgia and wonder, this is a sweet and simple tale of determination and growth. I am absolutely in love with the stamp illustrations of The Old Truck and the young girl who lives, works, and dreams at the farm. A great addition to a home library, for fans of things that go and Christian Robinson!” – Eugenia


9780670016617The Last Kids on Earth by Max Brallier

“Life after the Monster Apocalypse can be a little rough for a geeky, wisecracking warrior hero, mainly because of all the zombies and giant monsters . . . . Oh crud! Incoming monster fist!” – Meghan




9781536204940A Wish in the Dark by Christina Soontornvat

“Christina Soontornvat’s fresh new world swallowed me whole! A Wish in the Dark is a beautifully told story of light and dark, justice, and loyalty. Even though Soontornvat’s world isn’t ‘real’, it’s deeply rooted in our complex reality. Thrilling, action-packed, heartfelt, and undeniably funny, this book has a little bit of everything for everyone.” – Eugenia


9781368023771Sanity & Tallulah: Field Trip by Molly Brooks

Fall in love with the geeky exuberance of Sanity and Tallulah and their quest to boldly (maybe too boldly) go where no scientists have gone before—into the world of genetically engineered mutant space cats. Warning: mad science, reckless hijinks, and near-catastrophic situations may ensue.” – Meghan
