Tuesdays with Tundra is a monthly post on our new releases. The following books are available today in stores and online!
Counting on Snow
By Maxwell Newhouse
US $14.95 / CAN $16.99
“… perfectly paced: each turn of the page reveals a new level of intensity in the growing blizzard, bringing an enjoyable hide-and-seek element…. Newhouse infuses every creature’s peering black eyes with character and life…. Newhouse’s sensitive portrayal of the stark Arctic landscape creates an atmospheric chilliness that perfectly captures a winter evening north of the 49th parallel. Original without being gimmicky, Counting on Snow should come with the purchase of every crib in this country, as it has all the makings of a Canadian classic.” – Starred Review, Quill & Quire
Design It! The Ordinary Things You Use Everyday and the Not-So-Ordinary Ways They Came to Be
By Rona Arato
Illustrated by Claudia Newell
US $20.95 / CAN $22.99
“… Arato goes beyond the question of how an object is designed to consider why. Kids are challenged to look closely at the products in their own homes, think critically about what makes for good design, and just as important, imagine how certain objects can be improved…. With its quirky cartoons, fun facts, and thought-provoking challenges, Design It! is a perfect introduction to the way the products we use each day, from toasters to telephones, came to be.” – Quill & Quire
Zero Kisses for Me
By Manuela Monari
Illustrated by Virginie Soumagnac
US $15.95 / CAN $17.99
“…Monari’s slight tale of a little child with big-kid ambitions is spot on the mark. Told mostly in a loving dialogue between mother and child, the language and syntax are true to life and utterly believable. Soumagnac’s cartoon-style illustrations are a perfect match…. This is a sit-on-your-lap, kiss-and-hug read-aloud.” – Starred Review, Kirkus Reviews
