Brother Hugo and the Bear
Written by Katy Beebe Illustrated by S. D. Schindler
Brother Hugo can’t return his library book — the letters of St. Augustine — because, it turns out, the precious book has been devoured by a bear! Instructed by the abbot to borrow another monastery’s copy and create a replacement, the hapless monk painstakingly crafts a new book, copying it letter by letter and line by line. But when he sets off to return the borrowed copy, he finds himself trailed by his hungry new friend, who thinks that the words of St. Augustine are truly far sweeter than honey. Once a bear has a taste of letters, it appears, he’s rarely satisfied! Brother Hugo and the Bear is loosely based on a note found in a twelfthcentury manuscript — and largely on the creative imaginings of author Katy Beebe. Lavishly illustrated by S. D. Schindler in the style of medieval manuscripts, this humorous tale is sure to delight readers who have acquired their own taste for books. A Junior Library Guild Selection
Katy Beebe teaches history at the University of Texas at Arlington and has a doctorate in medieval history from the University of Oxford. She spent many years studying the kinds of medieval manuscripts that Brother Hugo might have made. Brother Hugo and the Bear is her first book for children.

Two Little Birds
Written and illustrated by Mary Newell DePalma
Two little birds hatch and grow until one day, they see an amazing sight: hundreds of other birds, all flying together in one direction. They join in, and so begins an amazing and sometimes dangerous journey that they never could have imagined. Eventually they return home — and the cycle starts over again. This simple story, nicely complemented by warm and colorful illustrations, subtly celebrates the wonders of migration. Loosely based on the lifecycle of the orchard oriole, it can also serve as a sweet growing-up story for little humans.
Mary Newell DePalma has written and illustrated many books for children, including Bow-Wow Wiggle-Waggle and Uh-Oh! (both Eerdmans), as well as A Grand Old Tree (Scholastic), which received the IRA/CBC Children’s Choice award. She has also illustrated several other books for Eerdmans, including Now It Is Winter and Now It Is Summer. Mary lives in Massachusetts.

Thomas the Toadilly Terrible Bully
Written by Janice Levy Illustrated by Bill Slavin and Esperança Melo
Thomas hates being ignored. But when his attempts to impress don’t make him any friends, he decides to be a bully instead. There’s just one problem: he makes a terrible bully. A toadilly terrible one, in fact. It turns out, though, that there’s an even bigger bully around, and Thomas soon learns what it feels like to be the one bullied. But a bit of teamwork helps him outwit the bully and make a new friend. And being a friend, Thomas finds, is far more fun than being a bully.

The Geese March in Step
Written and illustrated by Jean-François Dumont
Every morning at the farm, all the geese line up in a perfectly straight line and parade down to the pond. Igor, their leader, makes sure that they all march in perfect time. But no matter what she tries, little Zita just can’t seem to keep the same beat as everyone else. Finally, Igor makes her march to the pond all by herself. Zita isn’t alone for long, though! Soon all the other animals on the farm join in with the little goose’s own special rhythm. With Zita leading the way, the parade down to the pond is a good deal more joyful. Full of fun rhythms and sounds, this great read-aloud has a wonderful message about the importance of creativity, imagination, and individuality.
Jean-Francois Dumont is a French author and illustrator who has created many stories for children, including The Chickens Build a Wall (Eerdmans) and A Blue So Blue (Sterling), winner of the 2004 Prix Saint-Exupéry, an award given yearly to the best illustrated picture book in France.

A Pond Full of Ink
Written by Annie M. G. Schmidt Illustrated by Sieb Posthuma
Translated by David Colmer
This delightful collection of poems from well-known author Annie Schmidt offers children and the young at heart a refreshing, inventive look at the world. The rollicking poems tell the stories of such intriguing characters as three elderly otters who long to go boating but find themselves biking instead, furniture that comes to life when no one is home, and Aunt Sue and Uncle Steve who nest up in a tree! The poems in A Pond Full of Ink transform ordinary events and places into extraordinary adventures full of imagination, much like the work of Shel Silverstein or Jack Prelutsky. Accompanying the poems is bold and expressive artwork that makes this book too charming to resist.
Annie M. G. Schmidt (1911-1995) was a beloved Dutch writer of poetry, songs, books, plays, musicals, and radio and television dramas. She is very well known in both her native Holland and in a number of countries where her works are in translation. Her volumes of children’s poetry continue to captivate large audiences. Sieb Posthuma is an award-winning Dutch illustrator, writer, and theater designer. David Colmer is an Australian translator. He has previously translated Annie Schmidt’s Jip and Janneke.

A Less Than Perfect Peace
Written by Jacqueline Levering Sullivan
Four years have gone by since Annie Leigh Howard joyfully welcomed her father back from World War II. Life isn’t back to normal quite as Annie once hoped, though. It is now January 1950, and the Cold War has begun to grip the nation. In this sequel to Annie’s War, the family has finally settled in after a major move from Seattle to Tacoma, but Annie’s once outgoing and gregarious father, now blind from the war, is retreating from the outside world. Annie is determined to help her father once again embrace life. In the meantime, she meets Elisabeth VanderVelde and her handsome twin brother, Johannes, refugees from the Netherlands. Through them she comes to see the world differently — to understand the nature of sacrifice and the truth that loss in wartime is not limited to those that fight on the battlefield.
Jacqueline Levering Sullivan is a retired professor of writing who founded and directed the Writing Center at Pitzer College in Claremont, California. Annie’s War, her first published novel, was based on events from her childhood.
