Bird Child

Illustrated by François Thisdale
Hardcover | 32 Pages
Ages: 5-8
ISBN: 978-0-88776-894-1
“Magical and ethereal do not typically describe tales of bullying, but this lyrical combination of realism and fantasy defies expectation…. This is a beautiful book with a somber tone, buoyed by Eliza and Lainey’s triumph in imagining possibilities. They do not fight the bully, but defy him by becoming friends.” – School Library Journal

The Reluctant Journal of Henry K. Larsen

Ages: 11-14
ISBN: 978-1-77049-372-8
“…a highly emotional story about a family that blames one another, and themselves, for an unimaginable tragedy. Nielsen’s balance of humor and pathos is finely honed, making this a surprisingly breezy read for so heavy a topic.” – Booklist

When I Get Older

Written by K’NAAN and Sol Guy
Illustrated by Rudy Gutierrez
Hardcover | 32 Pages
