THIS ONE SUMMER by Mariko and Jillian Tamaki
Shelf Awareness, October 31, 2014: Book Brahmin: Kristen Radtke
“I've read the graphic novel This One Summer by Jillian Tamaki and Mariko Tamaki three times in the past two days. The word ‘beautiful’ is woefully insignificant. Everyone should read it immediately.”

MCPG ANIMAL FRIEND OF THE WEEK


Happy Halloween! Samantha’s pug Olivia is going trick-or-treating as an octopug this year.

Olivia’s favorite book right now is The Fun Book of Scary Stuff, by Emily Jenkins and illustrated by Hyewon Yum. In this hilarious and slightly-scary book, a boy, his terrier, and his pug talk about all the things that scare them – and come up with a clever way to face their fears.

A WONDERFUL YEAR by Nick Bruel
Publishers Weekly, October 24, 2014 issue: 2nd STARRED REVIEW!
« “Bad Kitty creator Bruel alternates between goofy humor and gentle reflection in four seasonal episodes starring an unnamed girl in a small town…Surefire readaloud laughs as well as space for pondering.”

HUNTERS OF THE GREAT FOREST by Dennis Nolan
Booklist, November 1, 2014 issue
“This is sure to be popular with fans of David Wiesner’s Mr. Wuffles (2013) and Flotsam(2006), as well as Aaron Becker’s Journey (2013); be sure to provide plenty of time to peruse the glorious mixed-media art.”

The Wall Street Journal, October 24, 2014: READ IT HERE!
“Equipped with only a few tools, the travelers have soon bravely penetrated a wilderness of colossal mushrooms, gigantic toads and angry chipmunks the size of houses. And then—oh, joy!—they find what they seek in this humorous, tender story.”

KATIE FRIEDMAN GIVES UP TEXTING by Tommy Greenwald, illus. by J.P. Coovert
Kirkus, November 15, 2014

KID SHERIFF AND THE TERRIBLE TOADS by Bob Shea, illus. by Lane Smith
Shelf Awareness, October 31, 2014
“Children will love being in on the joke and will lap up the dinosaur trivia, as the Toad brothers grow increasingly upset at prehistoric critters getting credit for their crimes. In a brilliant spread, the boy (and tortoise) measures the jail door to figure out how to corral the giant criminals, while the bow-legged brothers' legs frame the scene. Yee-haw!”

AND AWAY WE GO! by Migy
Booklist, November 1, 2014 issue
“In this airborne version of the folktale “The Mitten,” Mr. Fox receives a hot-air balloon he hopes will fly him to the moon…Migy’s U.S. debut features a slightly retro New York City resplendent in pinks and greens, full of scenes suggesting prominent works of art.”

EINSTEIN THE CLASS HAMSTER AND THE VERY REAL GAME SHOW by Janet Tashjian, illus. by Jake Tashjian
Booklist, November 1, 2014 issue
“Einstein finally gets his chance to step in and host a real live game show. But is he up to the challenge? Cute, pop-eyed cartoon illustrations add to the book’s sense of silliness….An enticing mix of information and fun that is sure to please.”

HOW IT WENT DOWN by Kekla Magoon
The LA Times, October 30, 2014: SCAN ATTACHED

RULE OF THREE: Fight for Power by Eric Walters
Kirkus, November 14, 2014
 “Less about physical survival, in this sequel, the conflict concerns the community's morals and soul…The philosophical questions and killer ending will prime readers for the next book.”

 Eser Yapılan Övgüler;

«"Yang and Liew reinvent this character in a brilliant homage that finally allows the Green Turtle to get his long overdue face time." - BCCB, STARRED REVIEW

«"There's plenty of humor in this lively, entertaining adventure story . . . At its heart, though, this book is a subtle comment on China's changing cultural landscape and growing multiculturism in America. A lovingly tongue-in-cheek homage." -Booklist, STARRED REVIEW

«"Racism, romance, humor, and identity all play important roles in Yang and Liew’s evocation of Hank’s life in pre-WWII San Francisco as they create an origin story that blends classic comics conventions with a distinctly Chinese perspective." - Publishers Weekly, STARRED REVIEW

"The insight into Chinese mafia and 1940s American superhero comic book culture is wonderful." - VOYA

"Award-winning author Yang and artist Liew tackle a lesser-known aspect of history, breathing new life into the Green Turtle, a 1940s comic book hero . . . A creative take on the superhero genre." - School Library Journal

"Abundant humor, strong characters and cracking good action." - The Horn Book

"A golden-age comic superhero returns with a brand new Asian-American origin story . . . An entertaining and intelligent response to classic superhero stories." - Kirkus Reviews
