Shapes That Roll Karen Nagel & Steve Wilson

During that time, many negotiations and compromises take
place: between author and editor; between author and publisher;
between author and illustrator; between illustrator and art director;
between editorial and sales; between publisher and printer;
between publisher and bookseller. The biggest danger in the
negotiations among the players is losing sight of the child—
Shapes
the child’s interests, intellectual capacities, and feelings.

ShApES ThAT ROLL

With previous texts I have involved children, both intellectually
an emotionally, in the making of an afghan (With Love from
Grandma); the making of a cradle and a quilt (Before You Were
Born); the making of a baby (Waiting for Baby); and the making
of a painting (Lunchtime for a Purple Snake).

In each of the books, the protagonists had to delay gratification
$14.99
and wait for the finished product. The same is true for the authors
and illustrators who make the books. If all goes well, a book takes
at least eighteen months to reach its final destination—the child
who reads it.

The challenge for a publisher is to have a book emerge from the

Some shapes roll . . . some don’t. Some shapes stack . . . others won’t.
Some shapes lie down . . .while others stand tall. Circles, squares,
and triangles, even ovals and diamonds, are endlessly and intriguingly
entertaining in Steve Wilson’s world. Karen Nagel’s rhythmic text is
brought to life by Wilson’s troupe of uniquely-shaped characters.

As a writer of children’s books, I have always been interested
in describing steps along the way before an object, living or
non-living, emerges in its final form. My first book, A New
Coat for Anna, had as one of its themes the making of a red
coat. For this fall, more than twenty years later, I write about
the “making” of a red apple, from fruit growing on the tree to
market, to picnic, to seed, to sapling and tree, and finally to a
new apple.

By the Light of the Harvest Moon Harriet Ziefert & Mark Jones

Wrapped in Love Jan Johnston & Maria Eugênia

Celebrate the autumnal
equinox with the leaf people

Late, late, late in the dark, dark middle of the night,
Cruiser hears sounds, sounds that make him nervous…

Chase away fears of the dark
Mom and Dad tuck Snoozer into bed, but before he falls
asleep, he hears strange noises: Creak creak. Thump thump.
Squeak. Snoozer is afraid, but Mom and Dad comfort and
reassure him. Feeling securely protected by his parents’ love,
Snoozer’s fear of the dark diminishes. A repetitive refrain
soothes Snoozer and reader alike.

As the harvest moon shines down, the wind picks
up, sending orange, yellow, and crimson leaves
dancing, until they settle in a pumpkin patch.
One-by-one, leaf people emerge to celebrate the
autumnal equinox.
Mark Jones’s rich pastel illustrations bring to life
the mysterious and fleeting world of a gentle troupe
of leaf characters, who will warm the hearts of
all readers.

frontlist

Long Tail Kitty makes his debut

From one small seed
comes one red apple . . .

Lark Pien’s clever, precise, unique comics are favorites with graphic-novel
fans, and Long Tail Kitty marks her debut in the children’s-book world. Meet
Long Tail Kitty and his friends and neighbors: a bee who’s friends with the
flowers (at least the nice ones); Good Tall Mouse, who likes ice skating; and
a family of aliens, who drop in for one night of fun. The warmth and visual wit
of these stories are sure to win over young readers, who will want to return
again and again to Long Tail Kitty’s house, by the hill, by the meadow, by the
lake, by the river, by the town, by the bridge on the street where he lives.

Follow the life cycle of an apple: from fruit growing on the
tree to market, to picnic, to seed, to sapling and tree, and
finally to a new apple. This simple, joyful book with radiant
illustrations introduces readers to the amazing and delectable
way the earth provides food.
Harriet Ziefert lives in South Orange, New Jersey and takes her
Boston-based grandchildren apple picking every year at an orchard
in Massachusetts.

Lark Pien worked as an architectural designer before she turned to
drawing her acclaimed comics full time. She has been a resident artist at
San Francisco’s Cartoon Art Museum and Asian Art Museum, as well as
the Charles M. Schulz Museum in Santa Rosa, California. Lark currently
lives in Oakland, California, with her husband, who draws comics too, and
their tuxedo cat, who likes to play, play, play.

Karla Gudeon’s artwork is displayed in galleries and distinguished

seagulls by walking on the beach wing in wing, and cows with
“moooosic.” Die-cuts and flaps throughout reveal animals expressing
their love in the cutest ways.

Traveling is fun and easy

Liven up mealtime with these placemats, which teach
kids how to turn an A into an Alligator,
a Z into a Zebra, and a number 9 into a hot air
balloon. The tear-off pad means there’s always
a new placemat
when you need one.

These flash cards, shaped like little suitcases, are the perfect complement to
Greetings from Kiwi and Pear. Each card features a picture with its name in
both English and Spanish: plane and aeroplano, suitcase and maleta, swimsuit
and traje de baño. The cards are held together by a ring on a spiral cord that
can be clipped onto a child’s backpack. They are a valuable language tool for
families planning trips, or for parents who want to talk to their children about
foreign languages and places.

Harriet Ziefert is the author of
many picture books. The mother of two
and grandmother of four, she lives in
South Orange, New Jersey.

Mark Jones was born in Switzerland,
grew up in Florida, and graduated from
Manhattan’s School of Visual Arts
with a degree in illustration. He lives in
Brooklyn, New York, and he has never
built a snowman. This is Mark’s first
picture book.

Snow Part y

Snow Party

When the first snow falls on the first
day of winter, watch carefully!
You’ll see snow men, snow women,
and snow children emerging from
the white to have a snow party.
There will be music, food, and
dancing—but it will all be cleared
away and gone when morning comes . . .

With enchanting pastel illustrations
by debut artist Mark Jones, Snow Party
is a winter celebration to treasure.

Blue Apple

SAMi toys, exclusively available at
FAO Schwarz, are designed to flip, turn,
mix, and match for a world of learning and
fun! They invite hours of creative play that
develop small motor skills.

hit, and she has been creating rhymes
ever since. Sylvie lives in Seattle,

H “[B]y by the time the last page is turned, even kids in the Sunbelt will

Snow Party

When the first snow falls on the first
day of winter, watch carefully!
You’ll see snow men, snow women,
and snow children emerging from
the white to have a snow party.
There will be music, food, and
dancing—but it will all be cleared
away and gone when morning comes . . .

Harriet Ziefert has been making magic
with words for many years. She is author
of over 200 books for young readers.
She lives in Maplewood, NJ and has five
grandchildren who love to listen to her
magical stories.

1) Draw two P’s, one very fat.

What do an aardvark, a cheetah,
and a quokka (pronounced
KWO-ka) have in common?
They’re zoodles—animals with
double letters in their name.

2) Attach two teardrop ears
and two dot eyes.

From a peccary (a wild pig) to
an opossum, from a kookaburra
to a hippopotamus, here are
39 zany zoodles. You’ll have oodles
of fun doodling—while learning
fascinating animal facts along
the way.

3) Add two curlicues.

4) Give your hippo legs
and squiggle toes.

The latest book of Deborah
Zemke’s doodling books will
surely be a hit with kids
of all ages.

“Uses the alphabet itself for inspiration in doodling and
sketching. . . . Inventive doodles include a lion with a
‘leaning L’ for a gaping mouth as well as a swoopy
skateboarder whose body is based on a curvy ‘S.’”
—Publishers Weekly
“Deborah Zemke goes wild with the alphabet . . . turning
an uppercase H into hats and caps, and showing how a
little o makes owl eyes, planets in orbits, and octopi. And
who knew you could draw a jaguar using four j’s and a few
other letters? Or begin a walrus with just a hint of a w?”
—FamilyFun
“This combination of alphabet and drawing book will
delight kids and teachers alike. . . . Parents and teachers
could use this book to reinforce letters for younger
children, while older kids will enjoy doodling just for fun.”
—School Library Journal
