Dear Friends, This year represents another milestone for LEE & LOW BOOKS. With the addition of Children’s Book Press(CBP) as our latest imprint, 2012 officially became a “building” year for the company. What does this mean?First, we established relationships with CBP’s talented authors and illustrators to assure them that the future of their books was a priority. Second, the inventory of CBP was vastly depleted, so gradually replenishing stock of popular titles was crucial. Third, inserting the CBP titles into our website and catalog was necessary—atime consuming but rewarding task. And fourth, there were a host of other little details to attend to that are toonumerous to list here. As of this writing, we have accomplished all of these things to varying degrees, and we arecontinuing to work diligently to bring CBP into the Lee & Low family. It has been an exciting year so far and weare proud to reintroduce a collection of Children’s Book Press titles to our customers. Look for the CBP icon onpages 14–36 to see what’s available. The stars have been shining for some of our new releases.
It Jes’ Happened: When Bill Traylor Started to Draw,
 one of our 2005 New Voices Award Honor winners, was published this spring, along with
 Auntie Yang’s Great Soybean Picnic.
Both books have received rave reviews, including starred reviews from
Booklist, School Library Journal,
and
Kirkus 
! See the facing page for more award news.Our Tu Books imprint continues to tackle the big ideas and “what ifs” for which science fiction and fantasyare known.
Vodník,
by first-time novelist Bryce Moore, takes place in Slovakia and conjures a world wherecreatures like fire vilas, water ghosts, and Death herself can hold serious grudges, making things extremelyuncomfortable for a Roma teenager who gets on their bad side.
Cat Girl’s Day Off,
by Kimberly Pauley (
Sucks to Be Me 
 ), imagines a world where people are born with special Talents, which is great for some, but not for Asian American teen Natalie, whose Talent is the ability to talk to and understand cats.By the time you read this, we will be on the verge of welcoming more new books into the world (see page 10for a sneak peek). And while our work never slows, we must also stop and take a moment to thank all of you forsupporting our mission of publishing diverse books for children. The importance of our mission has not lessenedover the years. It has, in fact, grown even more relevant as our country and the world continue to evolveethnically and ponder issues of race. Our passion for creating opportunities for
all 
children to see themselves inthe pages of books is as strong as ever, and our enthusiasm for stories about all of us never grows old.
