“Wow. Just wow! This book is big in every way. . . . Incredible thought has been put into this oversize offering, from selection of the artists to the eye-popping design . . . CDs of the artists’ music are included, something books about musicians often miss. The book’s art is hard to resist. Big, bold graphic portraits begin every section. A variety of illustrators have provided the pictures, and each one is so memorable you want to rip it out and frame it . . . it’s a treat that the words grab as much as the pictures . . . kids could just kick back, read, and listen.” — Starred Review, Booklist

“Johnston has crafted a beautifully written, low-key, yet emotional story of a family dealing with the return of a son at the close of war. Jamie is wracked with survivor’s guilt. . . . His letters to Rachel . . . are painfully realistic, the antithesis of the glamour that teens too often assign to war….” — Starred Review, Booklist
“Filled with bumbling characters who achingly love each other, this coming-of-age tale rises above a crowded field to take readers on a moving journey of discovery.” — Starred Review, Kirkus Reviews

“Monster + mustache = ‘Huzzah!’ With a soupçon of cool. . . . Requests for repeats are a certainty, and small ones will learn a lesson about individuality while enjoying this delightfully fun monster tale. Mo’s mustache? Magnifique!” — Starred Review, Kirkus Reviews

My Name Is BlessingMy Name Is Blessing
Written by Eric Walters
Illustrated by Eugenie Fernandes
Hardcover | 32 Pages
Ages 6 to 9
ISBN: 978-1-77049-301-8
“This expressive picture book, based on a real family, lovingly tells a hard story with a twist. It’s difficult to broach poverty, disability and custody issues in so few pages without sounding maudlin, but Walters manages by speaking simply. . . . With dignity and quiet acceptance, this story illustrates that blessings, like family, can take unexpected forms.” — Starred Review, Kirkus Reviews
