EDWARD HOPPER PAINTS HIS WORLD by Robert Burleigh, illus. by  Wendell Minor
Publishers Weekly, May 12, 2014 issue: STARRED REVIEW!
« “Minor’s gouache watercolors (stunning works of art in their own right) echo Hopper’s evocative realism and clean lines…Remarkable.”

D-DAY by Rick Atkinson
Booklist, May 1, 2014 issue
“Readers will feel the tension…Substantial and readable.”

VOYA, June 2014 issue
“While there is no shortage of World War II books, this one is engaging, with pages filled with pictures, maps, and graphics that break the text up enough to keep readers’ attention throughout.”

EDDA by Adam Auerbach
Kirkus, June 1, 2014 issue
“No one wants to share or trade lunches with Edda, who has brought a flagon of…something and a huge hunk of meat still on the bone, and she misses the amazing wildlife of Asgard – Rex the classroom guinea pig is no substitute. But things begin to look up when Edda uses a difficult writing assignment to describe Asgard for her classmates.”

MY LIFE AS A JOKE by Janet Tashjian, illus. by Jake Tashjian
Booklist, April 30, 2014
“At times laugh-out-loud funny, this is a strong addition to a popular series.”

·         ADVENTURES IN CARTOONING: Characters in Action by James Sturm, Andrew Arnold, and Alexis Frederick-Frost / 2014 IRA Childrens’ Choice
·         BATTLING BOY by Paul Pope / 2014 IRA Childrens’ Choice


Mental Floss, May 14, 2014: “The Most Interesting Comics of the Week”
“There's a wonderful synergy that’s apparent when reading Box Brown’s Andre the Giant: Life and Legend because Andre seems to be born right out of Brown's graphic, geometric style.”

New York Times Sports, May 12, 2014: SCAN ATTACHED
“’I thought his whole life was this beautiful, tragic story,’ [Brown] said.”

VOYA, June 2014 issue
“Brown does an outstanding job conveying the excitement and drama of professional wrestling, and it is clear that he has exhaustively researched Roussimoff’s life.”

THIS ONE SUMMER by Mariko and Jillian Tamaki
BoingBoing, May 7, 2014: READ IT HERE!
“The Tamakis spin a story that is every bit as bittersweet as the great coming-of-age stories, a modern Stand By Me or Breakfast Club.”

Huffington Post, May 15, 2014: AUTHOR INTERVIEW (READ IT HERE!)
“Writing books is not the same thing as dancing on a stage in a bodysuit covered in birthday cake.”

Mental Floss, May 14, 2014: “The Most Interesting Comics of the Week”
“A masterful piece of storytelling…a revelation.”

“There’s a sequence in the book that captures this idea so perfectly that each frame is liable to send you back into a Proustian reverie about corn on the cob or drinking Slurpees. Ticking down a summer day, from reading in bed to hitting a mini-golf course to preparing a patio dinner, it’s a pure distillation of the time dilation and overstuffed aimlessness of warm vacation days.”

“Jillian and Mariko Tamaki have hit it right on the nose so it echoes right back to how you felt as an 11-year-old girl.”

Comics Alternative, May 9, 2014: READ IT HERE!
“The text is multi-layered and narratively sophisticated – in both story and visuals – and is much more than a tale of ‘growing up’ or crossing developmental thresholds.”

Comic Book Resources, May 7, 2014: AUTHOR INTERVIEW (READ IT HERE!)
“I was trying to capture the sensory feeling of summer. The smells, the sun on your skin, warm breeze, being on the beach and stuff. But also the emotional landscape of that time, which, especially in Canada, has a sense of fleetingness.”

VOYA, June 2014 issue
“While all the characters are boldly drawn, the young girls are remarkable.”


Surprise! It’s BAD KITTY on her birthday, with creator Nick Bruel and editor Neal Porter. Happy 10th Birthday, Bad Kitty!

More photos are attached from Bad Kitty’s visit to Texas, where she went to kick off the Bad Kitty Six Flags Read to Succeed Promotion. This Bad Kitty is great at making friends!


·         BAD KITTY SCHOOL DAZE by Nick Bruel / 2014 IRA Childrens’ Choice
·         BREAKFAST ON MARS edited by Rebecca Stern and Brad Wolfe / 2014 IRA Teachers’ Choice


BOW-WOW’S NIGHTMARE NEIGHBORS by Mark Newgarden and Megan Montague Cash
Publishers Weekly, May 12, 2014 issue: STARRED REVIEW!
« “Confident, clear-line drawings in the manner of Hergé or Crockett Johnson give the panels a classic feel, and, in the mostly b&w artwork, color is used to brilliant comic effect. The pacing never flags, and the warm-and-fuzzy ending is as gratifying as it is surreal.”

THE IRIDESCENCE OF BIRDS by Patricia MacLachlan, illus. by Hadley Hooper
Booklist, June 1, 2014 issue: STARRED REVIEW!
« “MacLachlan distills Matisse’s first experiences, assembling them in rough detail to communicate their emotional impact, much like the Fauvist master her subject became. Hooper’s vivid block-print illustrations vibrate and hum, echoing Matisse’s lively sense of dynamic composition and brilliant color.”

FROODLE by Antoinette Portis
Booklist, May 15, 2014 issue
“Her dynamic variety of perspectives adds drama and humor, such as when Crow looms large over the little brown bird in a close-up spread or when Crow hops ever closer as the birds can be seen from afar perched on a moonlit hedgerow.”

Booklist, May 1, 2014 issue
“Acampora’s well-written, resolutely cheerful offering celebrates books, reading, and life, and that is surely enough to satisfy the most jaded reader.”


·         A MOOSE THAT SAYS MOO by Jennifer Hamburg, illus. by Sue Truesdell / 2014 IRA Childrens’ Choice


ANNIKA RIZ, MATH WHIZ: Franklin School Friends, Book #2 by Claudia Mills, illus. by Rob Shepperson
Booklist, April 30, 2014
“Annika loves math, and in this delightful second outing of the Franklin School Friends, she tries to get her
friends to see why it is so darn interesting.”

CUT ME FREE by J.R. Johansson
Hypable, April 30, 2014: COVER REVEAL!
“The YA contemporary urban thriller Cut Me Free will be published in January 2015, and today we can exclusively reveal the cover!”

“She writes about starting high school, navigating new friendships, falling in love for the first time, learning to live with her splintering family.”

ONE MAN GUY by Michael Barakiva
Booklist, May 1, 2014 issue
“Barakiva’s first novel is a sweet-spirited love story…The Armenian content adds flavor and texture.”

“Alek is sure this experience will be the perfect hellish end to his hellish freshmen year of high school. He never could’ve predicted that he’d meet someone like Ethan.”

THE POUT-POUT FISH GOES TO SCHOOL by Deborah Diesen, illus. by Dan Hanna
Kirkus, June 1, 2014 issue
“This look back at when Mr. Fish was young and starting school for the first time focuses on belonging.”

QUEEN ON WEDNESDAY by Gabi Swiatkowska
Booklist, May 15, 2014 issue
“The children in her delightfully weird paintings look like they have stepped out of a nineteenth-century painting and into
an absurd wonderland full of odd animals and objects that juxtapose amusingly.”

VOYA, June 2014 issue
“This book takes readers on a relatable and inspiring journey as Alice becomes a better version of herself.”

RUPERT CAN DANCE by Jules Feiffer
Booklist, May 15, 2014 issue
“Feiffer’s familiar, sketchy Magic Marker artwork is especially rough here, compounding the story’s already childlike sense of whimsy.”

STAR CHILD by Claire A. Nivola
Booklist, May 15, 2014 issue
“An unusual and deeply moving interpretation of the cycle of life.”

TUCK-IN TIME by Carole Gerber, illus. by Tracey Campbell Pearson
Kirkus, June 1, 2014 issue
“Facial expressions show joy and delight at the whole routine…Charming.”
