Can You Find My Robot's ArmCan You Find My Robot’s Arm?
By Chihiro Takeuchi
Hardcover | Ages 2 to 5
ISBN 9781101919033

“Young readers … will pore over the intricately detailed black-on-cream cut-paper illustrations…. Striking geometric silhouetted images invite long, happy perusal (gears and wind-up keys abound)…. Chihiro Takeuchi is a well-known cut-paper artist in Osaka, Japan. Can You Find My Robot’s Arm? is her debut English-language picture book, although she has written and illustrated several books in Japanese. Readers will surely be asking librarians, ‘Can you find more books by Chihiro Takeuchi?'”
– Starred Review, Shelf Awareness

Yak and DoveYak and Dove
By Kyo Maclear
Illustrated by Esme Shapiro
Hardcover | Ages 4 to 8
ISBN 9781770494947

“Odd-couple friendships are nothing new in children’s literature, but seldom is one portrayed with the grace and sly humor Maclear and Shapiro bring to this story…. Maclear (The Liszts) divides the story into three chapters, all told in spare but emotionally rich dialogue…. Shapiro (Ooko) fills her watercolor, gouache, and pencil illustrations with subtle comedy … and excels at depicting the quiet pleasures of being simpatico, when a look between friends says it all.”
– Starred Review, Publishers Weekly

The FogThe Fog
By Kyo Maclear
Illustrated by Kenard Pak
Hardcover | Ages 4 to 8
ISBN 9781770494923

“Pak’s digitally worked pencil-and-watercolor illustrations support and enhance this simple parable…. Humor is to be found in the extensive human identifications that grace the endpapers and early pages of Warble’s story, a nod to the habits of bird-watchers like the author…. Reaching out lifts both fog and spirits; it brightens days and nights. A song about sharing that’s sure to lift readers’ spirits as well.”
– Starred Review, Kirkus Reviews

Little Blue ChairLittle Blue Chair
By Cary Fagan
Illustrated by Madeline Kloepper
Hardcover | Ages 3 to 7
ISBN 9781770497559

“Illustrator Madeline Kloepper works in a soothing, muted palette and her tender ink-and-pencil style is part Ruth Krauss and part Julie Morstad, with a vintage tinge. But Kloepper also infuses her style with several modern touches: there are diverse characters and families, everything is suspended in clean, crisp white space, and adult Boo sports a hipster beard and baseball tee. The result is a very sweet little marriage between old and new, with magic officiating the ceremony.”
Quill & Quire

How to Make Friends with a GhostHow to Make Friends with a Ghost
By Rebecca Green
Hardcover | Ages 4 to 8
ISBN 9781101919019

“With rosy cheeks, wide eyes, and childlike interests, this ghost is not just not-scary but utterly endearing. A cozy, muted autumnal palette; plenty of visual humor; and relaxed hand-lettering further lighten the punny text, making for a tongue-in-cheek but strangely sweet picture book about enduring friendship.”
The Horn Book Magazine

Praise for When the Moon Comes:

“The illustrations, with their burnished waning light, and the clipped-short narrative combine to create an atmosphere that for anyone who has experienced it will feel pitch-perfect.” – Starred Review, Kirkus Reviews

“Harbridge uses language to create a space where magic happens, providing an opportunity for extraordinary things to occur in an ordinary world… An exquisite selection for older elementary readers.” – Starred Review, School Library Journal
