solutions-for-cold-feetSolutions for Cold Feet and Other Little Problems
Written and illustrated by Carey Sookocheff
Hardcover | 48 Pages | Ages 4-8
ISBN: 9781770498730
Solutions for Cold Feet is a rich, engaging book. It will appeal to teachers, as the assignment is evident: students can name their own problems and propose solutions. With many easy entry points for discussion, it’s also excellent for one-on-one reading.” – Starred review, Quill & Quire

the-darkest-darkThe Darkest Dark
Illustrated by Terry Fan and Eric Fan
Hardcover | 40 Pages | Ages 3-7
ISBN: 9781101918623
The Darkest Dark soars as an inspiration for children trying to overcome a fear as well as dreamers wondering if they will triumph. Of course, the lesson here is ageless. The book is beautifully and thoughtfully illustrated by brothers Terry and Eric Fan….” – London Free Press

hurry-up-henryHurry Up, Henry
Written by Jennifer Lanthier
Hardcover | 32 Pages | Ages 3-7
ISBN: 9780670068371
“Author Lanthier’s quiet text sets a patient tone for this familiar situation that frustrates many young families. The repetition of clock motifs, fanciful flora and fauna, and changes in scale add a touch of magical realism that furthers the book’s emotional themes. This empathetic tale ends with a question all would do well to contemplate: ‘Can we do this again tomorrow?’” – Starred review, Kirkus Reviews

the-lisztsThe Liszts
Written by Kyo Maclear
Hardcover | 40 Pages | Ages 5-9
ISBN: 9781770494961
“A family of list aficionados gets an unexpected guest in this offbeat tale…. Reminiscent of the best nonsense children’s books, Maclear’s wry tale oozes pure whimsy. The text revels in offbeat sincerity, wringing chuckles out of juxtapositions and amusing dialogue…. Simply enchanting in all its quirks.” – Kirkus Reviews

greatGreat
Written by Lauri Holomis
Hardcover | 32 Pages | Ages 4-8
ISBN: 9780670069903
“If you have a hankering for hockey, when the Gretzky family weighs in, sit up and listen. This is a sports story about attitude, which can rarely be emphasized enough, because it rarely sinks in deep enough to leave its lasting mark…. Fun and effort trump commercialization and competitiveness every time in sports, and this book tells a plain truth that Gretzky learned early.” – Kirkus Reviews

yitzi-and-the-giant-menorahYitzi and the Giant Menorah
Written and illustrated by Richard Ungar
Hardcover | 32 Pages | Ages 5-9
ISBN: 9781770498129
“The text, written in a buoyant and playful manner, reflects a whimsical, folktale quality that reveals some of the actual traditions associated with the holiday of Chanukkah. The writing is vivid and engaging. This talented author is also the illustrator of the tale, and the bold, lively colours used add drama, texture and vibrancy to the story but also reflect a time and place long ago.” – Highly Recommended, CM Magazine

Once in a Town Called MothOnce, in a Town Called Moth
Written by Trilby Kent
Hardcover | 224 Pages | Ages 12+
ISBN: 9781101918111
“Kent writes with refreshing emotional sophistication.… As literary as it is smart, Kent’s novel reflects life beautifully in its rigorous denial of pat, easy answers.” – Starred review, Quill & Quire
