Sylvia Long’s Thumbelina
By Sylvia Long

From best-selling artist Sylvia Long comes an exquisite version of Hans
Christian Andersen’s beloved tale about a thumb-size girl and her largerthan-life adventures. Jewel-toned paintings depict the story’s settings—
from light and airy meadows to Mole’s dark and dismal underground
home—while whimsical details bring the classic cast of characters to life
and make this storytime favorite a visual feast.
Sylvia Long is the award-winning illustrator of many books for children, including Sylvia Long’s
Mother Goose and An Egg Is Quiet. Her detailed paintings are inspired by her love of animals and
the outdoors. She lives in Scottsdale, Arizona.

This irresistible seek & find
book takes counting to a whole
new level!

One Too Many
A Seek & Find Counting Book

By Gianna Marino

In this boisterous barnyard, the fun grows with each turn of the page. One
bouncing flea is joined by two cows, then three horses, and so on, all the
way up to twelve swooping bats. Children will delight in following the shimmering path of the flea, counting each bounce along the way to find the new
arrival. Older readers can take the challenge further, counting all the animals
on the page, or hunting for their favorite. And a surprise ending reveals
which animal is just one too many! This frisky hodgepodge is sure to have
the whole herd roaring with laughter and pouring over the pages for hours.
Gianna Marino is a full-time illustrator, toy designer, and writer in the San Francisco Bay Area.
She has had an interest in animals since early childhood and has been painting since she could
hold a brush. Learn more at www.giannamarino.com.

We both hush then, and I feel a frisson, something cold trickling at my center, drip after
drip. I reach out for Hadley’s arm, even though
I’m angry at her for waking me, for dragging
me out into the woods, for calling the killer to
us with her bravado. It seems like wherever
he is now, whatever pickup truck he’s driving,
whatever bar fight he’s fighting, whichever
back alley he’s lurking in, his path will bend
to us, curving along the line of her voice.
As I reach for Hadley, she’s reaching for me,
too. When we see what we’re both doing, we
laugh at how we’ve spooked ourselves, and
it feels like a regular slumber party again,
as if we’ve indulged in nothing more serious
than scary stories. It would have been something if the killer had come crashing through
the woods right then and there. You wouldn’t
believe it, not even in a story.
In reality, it takes almost an hour more before
he arrives.

The Space Between Trees
By Katie Williams

Not your everyday coming-of-age novel . . .
This story was supposed to be about Enid—how she hasn’t made a friend
in years, how she tends to stretch the truth (especially about her so-called
relationship with college drop-out Jonah Luks), and how she finally comes
into her own once she learns to just be herself—but it isn’t. Because when
her classmate Elizabeth “Zabet” McCabe’s murdered body is found in the
woods, everything changes . . . and Enid’s life is never the same again.
Katie Williams is a graduate of the MFA program at the University of Texas at Austin and has
published numerous short stories for adults. She lives in San Francisco, where she currently
teaches writing at the Academy of Art. This is her first young adult novel.

The Life and Art of Charles Schulz

By Beverly Gherman

Beverly Gherman has written

As the artist behind the beloved Peanuts comic strip for more than 50
years, Charles Schulz—arguably the most famous cartoonist in the world—
created a colorful cast of characters that continues to bring humor and
comfort to millions of readers. In this distinctively designed yet highly
accessible book, renowned children’s biographer Beverly Gherman traces
both the life events that shaped Schulz’s art and the various ways in which
art influenced his life in return. Acclaimed by artists ranging from Andrew
Wyeth to Mo Willems, the artistic elements of Schulz’s work are brought to
life in a colorful layout and thoroughly explored in an enchanting text that
will draw in even the most reluctant readers.

biographies about authors,
dancers, presidents, scientists
and, of course, artists. Her
engaging child-accessible style
has won her many fans and
many awards, including a
California Library Beatty Award,
a Booklist Editor’s Choice, an
SCBWI Golden Kite Honor, a
Smithsonian Notable Book, and
an Oppenheimer Toy Portfolio
Gold Award. Beverly lives in
San Francisco.

I skipped the ball off a few tree trunks and ran to scoop it up.
But with one poorly aimed throw, it bounced into a nearby
bush. I dropped on all fours to search for it, but couldn’t see
much in the shadows of the grove. When I stretched my arm
into the tangled underbrush, it got caught in the branches.
“Ouch!” I removed my arm swiftly and surveyed the small
scrapes across my wrist and elbow. A light breeze caressed my
cuts. I heard whispers bounce off the trees, and had a strange
feeling I wasn’t alone.
Whoosh, whoosh.
And after the faintest whoosh, one word echoed clearly across
the grove: Come.
I pressed my back against the tree and scanned the area.
“Who’s there?” I called.
Come . . .
The breeze wrapped itself around me. I started to make a run
for it but then I remembered my baseball nudged under that
nasty bush. I couldn’t bear the thought of leaving it there, not
overnight. Just as I was about to reach into the thorny
branches again, it rolled out from under the bush on its own.

Tortilla Sun
By Jennifer Cervantes

When twelve-year-old Izzy discovers a beat-up baseball marked with the
words “Because . . . magic” while unpacking in yet another new apartment,
she is determined to figure out what it means. What secrets does this old
ball have to tell? Her mom certainly isn’t sharing any—especially when it
comes to Izzy’s father, who died before Izzy was born. But when she spends
the summer in her Nana’s remote New Mexico village, Izzy discovers longburied secrets that come alive in an enchanted landscape of watermelon
mountains, whispering winds, and tortilla suns. Infused with the flavor of
the southwest and sprinkled with just a pinch of magic, this heartfelt middle
grade debut is as rich and satisfying as Nana’s homemade enchiladas.

Noonie’s Masterpiece
By Lisa Railsback

Illustrated by Sarajo Frieden

Fantastic illustrations with a fresh, contemporary look enrich this debut
novel about a 10-year-old aspiring artist stuck living with an aunt, uncle,
and cousin who clearly don’t recognize her genius. A humorous and heartfelt reminder that “a brilliant artist is never afraid,” this book reveals that
sometimes our greatest masterpieces are the bonds we unexpectedly forge

Praise for You Can Do It Too!
“. . . Short, direct rhymes, printed in a
large, energetic black font . . . and
Wilson-Max’s textured paintings, colored
in rich, bright hues and accented with
thick black lines, keep the focus on the
palpable warmth between the siblings
and the everyday images from a child’s
multicultural world.”
—Booklist

“. . . A perfect offering for toddlers”
—School Library Journal

Praise for I Can Do It Too!
“Nothing is complicated here; just a
pure story line and kid-friendly artwork
that zero in on a child’s mastery of the
everyday . . . A winner for perusing
alone or reading at story times.”
—Booklist

You Can Do It Too!
I Can Do It Too!
By Karen Baicker • Illustrated by Ken Wilson-Max

These heartwarming stories remind us how satisfying it is to grow up surrounded by love. I Can Do It Too! affirms a little girl’s growing independence
as she, too, can begin to do all the things she sees her parents, relatives
and neighbors do: pouring juice at breakfast, strumming a guitar, and even
riding a bike! In You Can Do It Too! she passes newly won skills and abilities
to a younger brother, teaching him everything she thinks he needs to know.
The simple cadence of text and direct-to-the-heart art result in two books
as warm and generous as their message, providing reading pleasure for
toddlers, older siblings, and the grown-ups who love them.

Bears! Bears! Bears!
By Bob Barner

Everyone’s favorite bears (and some you may have never met before) fish,
munch, dive, cuddle, and climb their way through this playful romp. The
simple rhyming text is enhanced with fun facts about new cubs (pandas
are born no bigger than a stick of butter!) and bears around the world
(the spectacled bear is the only species native to South America), while
Bob Barner’s richly textured paper collage illustrations bring the bears of
the world to life. Budding ursinologists will bearly be able to contain themselves—this book is sure to leave them roaring for more!
Bob Barner is an award-winning author and illustrator of numerous nonfiction books for children.
When he’s not working on books, Bob likes to present his work to schools and libraries around the
world. He lives in San Francisco with his wife, Cathie. Learn more at www.bobbarner.com.

package will be as likely to be
passed among adults as among
­children.” —Publishers Weekly

playful scenarios, and even
older kids will ­recognize the
self-importance and the togetherness.” —Booklist

“This jaunty story…takes its
shape from the vibrant watercolors that catch the excitement of a big city…. The art,
reminiscent of Richard Scarry’s

anthropomorphic animals and
brims with details that will keep
kids poring over the pictures.”
