Family Literacy Day

In addition to Family Literacy Day, two renowned authors were born on this day! Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, better known through his pseudonym, Lewis Carroll, was born in 1832 and Mordecai Richler was born in 1931. Why not celebrate their books with your family today?

Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland
By Lewis Carroll
Illustrated by Oleg Lipchenko
Hardcover
112 Pages
ISBN 978-0-88776-932-0

“Elegant book design and sophisticated artwork…. remarkable and innovative….” – School Library Journal

“… Illustrator Oleg Lipchenko … gives Lewis Carroll’s masterpiece an antique feel that finds something startling on each and every page. In a world populated by inquisitive animals and archly disturbed humans, Lipchenko leaves his mark on Wonderland with a unique but satisfying vision…. Old-school in the best sense of the word, Tundra clearly knows a master when they see one…” – Bookslut.com

Jacob Two-Two Meets the Hooded Fang
By Mordecai Richler
Illustrated by Dušan Petričić
Hardcover
96 Pages
ISBN 978-0-88776-825-2

“Mordecai Richler is a funny man, a good writer, and everyone should go out tomorrow morning and beat his local bookseller into submission if he hasn’t got a nice plump display of books titled Jacob Two-Two Meets the Hooded Fang…. It is ghastly and funny…an unbelievably believable unbelievable place with no artificial sweeteners or preservatives.” – The New York Times Book Review

Jacob Two-Two and the Dinosaur
By Mordecai Richler
Illustrated by Dušan Petričić
Hardcover
104 Pages
ISBN 978-0-88776-926-9
“There is a reckless momentum to Richler’s narrative, a rhythm of slap-dash invention that mimics the frantic pace of childhood fantasy. Yet Richler’s tale is well-ventilated with adult wit.” – Maclean’s

Jacob Two-Two’s First Spy Case
By Mordecai Richler
Illustrated by Dušan Petričić
Hardcover
168 Pages
ISBN 978-0-88776-927-6
“…the story combines zippy dialogue, clever magic tricks, and even a chapter in mirror writing, with opprobrious names and grossness galore…. It will undoubtedly be greeted with shrieks of joy and loud guffaws from children employing their all-too-natural baser instincts.” – The Horn Book Magazine
