Look! A Book!

Look! A Book!
Staake, Bob

Bob Staake's illustrations are goofy and absurd, lending themselves perfectly to this hilarious seek-and-find book where penguins ride in teacups with baseball bats, and moose scientists oversee robot assembly lines. There are die-cut pages that offer a sneak peek into what comes next and a rhyming scheme that is sure to delight. Look! A Book! is picture book perfection.-Susanna, Montlake

Blackbringer

Blackbringer
Taylor, Laini

Magpie Windwitch is an unusual faerie. She hunts snags (devils) with a bunch of crows resembling cheroot-smoking, fussy, maiden uncles. When she discovers that the mannies (humans) have foolishly unloosed a darkness more powerful than any snag, she pursues it, aided at times by a flightless faerie prince, various imps, her childhood friend (more than just another faerie), and other surprising allies. The world Taylor has created is fresh and different and interestingly complex. -Guy, Central

Navigating Early

Navigating Early
Vanderpool, Clare

Jack finds Early Auden, another student at his new boarding school, a little unusual. No, very unusual. Nevertheless, the two unlikely friends launch themselves on an epic journey along the Appalachian Trail in search of a brother who has been reportedly killed on the battlefields of World War II. Pirates, bears, and secrets tangle and weave together in this story of friendship, family, and one irrational number.-Erica, Northeast

If I Built A House

If I Built A House
Van Dusen, Chris

You might recognize Van Dusen's retro artwork from the Mercy Watson series. With a similar throw-back style, his picture books combine plucky, playful drawings with fun read-aloud rhymes. This is a fun story about a boy who dreams really big. Also try the Mr. Magee books!-Misha, Central"
