Akashic Books I Love You Too
Ziggy Marley
Illustrated by Ag Jatkowska

A beautifully illustrated, multicultural children’s picture book based on one of Ziggy Marley’s most beloved songs, “I Love You Too.” The book explores a child’s relationship with parents, nature, and the unstoppable force of love. This is Ziggy’s first book, though his foray into children’s music is extensive and very well known. He is the singer of “Believe in Yourself,” the popular theme song of the hit TV show Arthur. About this book, Ziggy says, “One day I was in my kitchen making breakfast with my then three-year-old daughter Judah. She looked at me and said, ‘I love you.’ I spontaneously replied to her, ‘I love you too.’ From that came the song and now the book based on the lyrics. I hope you share and enjoy this with your loved ones as I have with mine.” Ziggy Marley is a devoted father and husband, multiple Grammy Award winner, Emmy Award winner (for his song “I Love You Too” in the animated series 3rd & Bird), humanitarian, singer, songwriter, producer, and reggae icon, who has released fifteen critically acclaimed albums. His early immersion in music came at age ten when he sat in on recording sessions with his father, Bob Marley. As the front man of Ziggy Marley and the Melody Makers, he released eight best-selling albums, with such chart-topping hits as “Look Who’s Dancing,” “Tomorrow People,” and “Tumblin’ Down.” Ziggy’s first solo album, Dragonfly, was released in 2003 and was followed by two Grammy Award–winning solo albums, Love Is My Religion (Best Reggae Album) and Family Time (Best Children’s Album). Coinciding with the release of I Love You Too, Marley released his brand-new album, Fly Rasta, in April 2014.
Bob Marley’s first and most famous son, Ziggy, extends his devotion to youth with his debut children’s book.

Arsenal Pulp Press Adrian and the Tree of Secrets
Hubert
Illustrated by Marie Caillou

Adrian isn’t very happy these days. He lives in a small town and goes to a Catholic high school. He wears glasses, secretly reads philosophy books, and wishes he had more muscles. He’s dogged by a strict mother, bullied by fellow players on the soccer field, and chastised by the school principal, who considers gay rumors about Adrian as a sign that he is “ill.” But Jeremy, the coolest kid at school, thinks otherwise; he takes Adrian on scooter trips, where they end up in Jeremy’s secret treehouse stealing kisses. Adrian finds himself falling in love, until Jeremy’s girlfriend rats them out, sending Jeremy into a tailspin of embarrassment for being different than the rest. What will become of him? Adrian and the Tree of Secrets is a poignant, beautifully illustrated graphic novel about first love, growing up, and having the courage to be true to yourself. Hubert studied at the School of Fine Arts in Angers, where he first set his career sights on comics. He has written a number of graphic novels and comic series in French, including one that has been translated into English: Miss Don’t Touch Me, Vols. 1 and 2, a graphic novel series set in Paris in the 1930s. Marie Caillou studied fine arts in Strasbourg, France, and then in 1995 went to Brussels to study animation. She has directed short animated films, including a series entitled Peur(s) du Noir (Fear of the Dark). This is her first book to appear in English.
The bittersweet story of Adrian, a nerdy teenaged boy who falls in love with Jeremy, the cool kid at school. Marketing Plans

Arsenal Pulp Press God Loves Hair
Second Edition

Vivek Shraya
Illustrated by Juliana Neufeld
“A touching poetic exploration of budding sexuality, the mysticism of religion, and family dynamics. Shraya’s text and Neufeld’s illustrations capture the confusion, innocence, and delusions of adolescence bang on.” —Brian Francis, author of Fruit I am often mistaken for a girl. Not just because I like to wear dresses or makeup. I don’t mind. My parents are from India and here is not quite home. School isn’t always safe and neither is my body. But I feel safe in my love for God. And God loves hair. First self-published to acclaim in 2011, Vivek Shraya’s first book, now published by Arsenal Pulp Press for the first time, is a collection of twenty-one short stories following a tender, intellectual, and curious child of Indian origin as he navigates the complex realms of sexuality, gender, racial politics, religion, and belonging. Told with the poignant insight and honesty that only the voice of a young mind can convey, God Loves Hair is a moving and ultimately joyous portrait of youth that celebrates diversity in all shapes, sizes, and colors. A Lambda Literary Award finalist in the category of children’s books. The stories are accompanied by the award-winning full-color illustrations of Juliana Neufeld. Vivek Shraya is a multimedia artist, working in the mediums of music, performance, literature, and film. He is also author of She of the Mountains.
A poignant YA story collection that celebrates racial, sexual, and religious diversity.

Blue Apple Books
Maplewood, New Jersey

Harriet Ziefert on the advantage of being a small, independent publisher: In children’s book publishing, the author and the illustrator of a picture book have traditionally been kept apart. All communication is through the editor and/or art director—a clumsy, timeconsuming, and uninspired arrangement. This means an illustrator is given a “finished” text for which he is to supply the art. If the artist wants to make suggestions for the writer, it means a long pause in the sketching phase while the editor discusses the proposed text changes with the author. Cumbersome? Yes. My vision is to deliberately put author and artist in a room together and let them talk freely. In a few hours, the two of them should be able to agree on changes that work for each of them and, hopefully, make a better book. In fact, an ideal publishing environment would have an afternoon a month where any artist or author under contract could bring his or her works in progress and get input from anyone else attending that day. In order to encourage creative collaboration, why can’t the offices of a publisher become more like a Bauhaus atelier? A small publisher should have the time and energy both to attract and find talent . . . people who might not get a hearing elsewhere. Less time in all kinds of meetings means more time in one-onone relationships with authors and artists. Small means no acquisition committees. Books are acquired by an editor who makes an informed decision on what he/she thinks is worth publishing. Input from others is at the editor’s discretion. Small means little sales and marketing input on acquisitions. The list is editorially driven . . . the sales force sells the books as presented . . . marketing figures out the strategy to do it. Small means nimble. A large publisher has the turning radius of a battleship . . . a small one can zip around like a VW Beetle. Small means quick editorial responses and hence less waiting-for-feedback time for the folks on the creative side. Artists often lose weeks, and sometimes months, while waiting for the art director to get back to them. Most of all, small means a collaborative environment where people can work together on a compact, human scale to create books they are passionate about.

Cinco Puntos Press Gabi, a Girl in Pieces
Isabel Quintero

July 24 My mother named me Gabriella, after my grandmother who, coincidentally, didn’t want to meet me when I was born because my mother was unmarried, and therefore living in sin. My mom has told me the story many, many, MANY, times of how, when she confessed to my grandmother that she was pregnant with me, her mother beat her. BEAT HER! She was twenty-five. That story is the basis of my sexual education and has reiterated why it’s important to wait until you’re married to give it up. So now, every time I go out with a guy, my mom says, “Ojos abiertos, piernas cerradas.” Eyes open, legs closed. That’s as far as the birds and the bees talk has gone. And I don’t mind it. I don’t necessarily agree with that whole wait until you’re married crap, though. I mean, this is America and the 21st century; not Mexico one hundred years ago. But, of course, I can’t tell my mom that because she will think I’m bad. Or worse: trying to be White. Gabi Hernandez chronicles her last year in high school in her diary: Cindy’s pregnancy, Sebastian’s coming out, the cute boys, her father’s meth habit, and the food she craves. And best of all, the poetry that helps forge her identity. Isabel Quintero is a library technician in the Inland Empire. She is also the events coordinator for Orange Monkey and helps edit the poetry journal Tin Cannon. Gabi is her debut novel.

Cinco Puntos Press Slump
Kevin Waltman

“Waltman’s series opener [Next] (first of a planned four) features plenty of basketball action fueled by hoops slang that will set basketball-mad readers right onto the court. . . . The author avoids slam-dunk answers, leaving readers poised for the next book. Like Derrick, this series is off to a promising high school career.”—Kirkus Reviews Things were supposed to change for sophomore year. Things were supposed to be—I don’t know— easier somehow. At least with Jasmine. Instead it’s more of a struggle than ever. At least last year when she was with Nick Starks I knew where I stood. Derrick Bowman’s sophomore year is a grind. He’s been looking forward to the basketball season all summer, but his girlfriend Jasmine leaves him for putting too much focus on basketball. The promise his Marion East basketball team showed at the end of last season isn’t materializing. And the sweet jumper D-Bow worked on all summer just isn’t falling. When Derrick’s father has a heart attack, Derrick is faced with a new reality where basketball can’t be his only priority. Kevin Waltman teaches creative writing at the University of Alabama. He lives in Coker, Alabama, with his family. Slump is the second book in his D-Bow High School Hoops series.
D-Bow’s back—with a sophomore slump. Still, with some help, he just might find more basketball magic.

Enchanted Lion Books The Jacket
Kirsten Hall and Dasha Tolstikova

The Jacket is a book that needs to be a book. It’s a book that pays tribute, in word and form, to all that a book is and can be. Once upon a time there was a girl who had a dog named Egg Cream. This girl loved her dog, but she also loved her special book. And Book loved her. But how about Book and Egg Cream? Could they coexist as the girl’s two favorite things in the whole wide world? After getting an MA in early childhood education from NYU, Kirsten Hall taught both preschool and elementary school for several years while writing learn-to-read books for Scholastic and engaging in the book world in many other ways. Today, Kirsten is the US managing agent at The Bright Agency, a London-based children’s illustration agency, as well as a book packager. The Jacket is her debut picture book. Before Dasha Tolstikova became an illustrator, she was a photographer, a reporter, a newswire translator, a sales clerk, a cargo van driver, a film producer, and a decorative painter—not necessarily in that order. She is a graduate of the SVA MFA illustration program. In addition to The Jacket, she is currently working on her autobiographical graphic novel with Groundwood Books. The Jacket is her debut into the world of picture books.
The Jacket is about a book that gets more than it ever dared to hope for or even dream about.

Enchanted Lion Books Take Away the A
Michaël Escoffier
Illustrated by Kris Di Giacomo

Take Away the A is a fun, imaginative romp through the alphabet. The idea behind the book is that within every language there are words that change and become a different word through the simple subtraction of a single letter. In other words, without the “A,” the Beast is Best. Or, without the “M,” a chomp becomes a chop—though it could be that this particular play on words didn’t even make it into the book, there are so many! We certainly don’t want to give too much away. . . . Now, take a look and find some more! Discovering all of the words in the book is a lot of fun, and then there’s the wild, exciting adventure that follows, of trying to find more! Michaël Escoffier was born in France in 1970. Raised by a family of triceratops, he discovered his passion for writing and telling stories at a young age. He lives in Lyon, France, with his wife and two children. Kris Di Giacomo is a popular children’s book illustrator who has lived in France for most of her life. After living in the United States for a while, she moved to France, where teaching English to young children and discovering French picture books were the triggers that led her into illustration. This is her fourth book to be published with Enchanted Lion Books.

Enchanted Lion Books Fox’s Garden
Princesse Camcam

One snowy night, a fox loses its way, entering a village. Chased away by the grown ups, Fox takes shelter in a greenhouse. A little boy sees this from his window. Without hesitating, he brings a basket of food to the greenhouse, where he leaves it for the fox. His gift is noticed and the night becomes a garden of new life, nourished by compassion and kindness. Princesse Camcam’s cut-paper illustrations, along with the beautiful lighting of the sets she creates, make the experience of looking at these illustrations both touching and transcendent. Their beauty and essential simplicity reflect the beauty of the story. The reader is left charmed by the fox and the child and thoughtful about the emotional lives of both humans and other creatures. Princesse Camcam was born in Paris in 1982 as Camille Garoche. Having spent her childhood in southwest France, she left to study the graphic arts at the Ecole des Beaux Arts in Cergy. She created her first illustrated book in 2006 and has been living in Germany since 2007.

Engine Books Where Wicked Starts
Elizabeth Stuckey-French and Patricia Henley

That’s when I noticed the couple we later named Bony and Mr. Creep sitting two rows in front of us. He had his arm around her, not like a father would do, or like I imagined a father would do—slinging his arm over the back of her chair. No, his arm was around her shoulders like she was his date. Bony kept wriggling but he would just grip her harder. Finally she gave up and sat still. He leaned over and licked her cheek. When stepsisters Nick and Luna suspect that a girl they meet at a Florida alligator farm is being held captive, they enlist an older boy with a set of wheels to help rescue her. Their parents are too busy renovating a bed and breakfast to realize the girls are in real danger. Elizabeth Stuckey-French is the author of The Revenge of the Radioactive Lady— a Ladies’ Home Journal Book Club selection—Mermaids on the Moon, and The First Paper Girl in Red Oak, Iowa. She teaches at Florida State University. Patricia Henley is the author of four short story collections—including Other Heartbreaks—and two novels, In the River Sweet and Hummingbird House, which was a finalist for the National Book Award. She lives in Cincinnati, Ohio.

Myfanwy Collins

Here and now I am in this place far away from my home. Here, with the cold wind blowing down from the north and the stars piercing through the cloudless sky. Here I am. But my story does not start here. My story starts months ago and hundreds of miles south of where I am now. My story starts in the place I used to call home. My story starts with violence and heartbreak. After her brother is involved in a grisly murder-suicide, fifteen-year-old Laney is sent to live with her grandmother in the Adirondack Mountains. Laney gradually warms to her new home—especially her relationship with a mysterious neighbor—but before she can appreciate her new life, she must uncover the secrets that have haunted her family for decades. Myfanwy Collins was born in Montreal but moved to the Adirondack Mountains in New York when she was still a child. She has since lived all over New England and worked as a waitress, a bartender, a nanny, a chambermaid, a clerk, a high school English teacher, a secretary, a ghost writer, and a traveling worker with Cirque du Soleil. She is the author of a novel, Echolocation, and a collection of short stories, I Am Holding Your Hand.

The Feminist Press at CUNY What Flowers Say
And Other Stories

George Sand
Translated by Holly Erskine Hirko Illustrated by Molly Crabapple
Roses plead to go out to dance; an old oak tree offers advice; paintings of gods and goddesses come alive. In What Flowers Say, renowned writer George Sand dares children to fantasize, to believe in an alternate world. This magical collection, originally penned for her grandchildren, calls into question what is real, a life lesson from someone who refused to accept the gender roles available to women in the nineteenth century. Sand shares her love and immense knowledge of science and mythology, engages issues of class and character, and captures the wonder and determination of a curious child, offering all of us a true sense of infinite possibilities—well beyond the world we live in. George Sand (1804–76) is considered the first professional woman writer of fiction. She wrote many novels, including Indiana and Léila, plays, newspaper articles, and a memoir, Story of My Life. The movie Impromptu is based on her life. Molly Crabapple is a painter, illustrator, and writer based in New York. She has written many books, including Discordia and Week in Hell, and produced work on subjects including the Spanish general strike, her former career as a pinup model, her arrest during Occupy Wall Street, and her visit to Guantanamo Bay. Her illustrated memoir, Drawing Blood, is forthcoming in 2015.

Ig Publishing Isabel’s War
Lila Perl

In a stunning new novel completed just before her death in 2013, awardwinning author Lila Perl introduces us to Isabel Brandt, a French-phrasedropping twelve-year-old New Yorker who’s more interested in boys and bobbing her nose than the distant war across the Pacific—the one her parents keep reminding her to care more about. Things change when Helga, the beautiful niece of her parent’s best friends, comes to live with Isabel and her family. Helga is everything Isabel’s not—cool, blonde, and vaguely aloof. She’s also a German war refugee, with a past that gives a growing Isabel something more important to think about than boys and her own looks. Set in the Bronx during World War II, Isabel’s War is a beautiful evocation of New York in the 1940s and of a girl’s growing awareness of the world around her. Lila Perl, the daughter of Russian immigrants fleeing anti-Semitism, published over sixty volumes of fiction and nonfiction for young readers during her long and distinguished career. In addition to the beloved Fat Glenda series, Perl twice received American Library Association Notable awards for nonfiction and was a recipient of the Sidney Taylor Award for Four Perfect Pebbles: A Holocaust Story. She died in 2013 at the age of ninety-two. Isabel’s War and its completed sequel, Lilli’s Quest, were her final works.
Isabel thinks World War II is a drag—until the horrors of war literally come right into her home.

Ig Publishing The Son Of Someone Famous
M.E. Kerr
Though to Brenda Belle Blossom’s mother he is just “that boy . . . tying those beer cans to the Christmas tree,” sixteen-year-old Adam is really the son of a famous movie star who hobnobs with royalty while jetting all over the world. Smarty Brenda Belle Blossom, horrified by fuzz on her upper lip, cracks jokes to avoid the bummer of her teeny Vermont hamlet and ladylike mother. When Adam is expelled from his last boarding school, he washes up in Vermont to stay with his irascible, alcoholic grandfather, and meets Belle at the drug store. Soon they are going steady, calling each other “darling,” and dedicated to helping other misfits achieve “Nothing Power”—until Brenda realizes there’s more to the “ordinary” Adam than it seems. M.E. Kerr is the winner of the 1993 Margaret Edwards Award for her lifetime achievement in writing books for young adults. She has been described by the New York Times Book Review as “one of the grand masters of young adult fiction.” She lives in Long Island, New York.

Seventeen-year-old Geri is under pressure from her mother to be “popular.” When she meets the handsome and witty Dave, she is suddenly more of an insider than she’s ever been.

A True Story Second Edition

Wendy Tokuda and Richard Hall
Illustrated by Hanako Wakiyama
“A light-hearted approach to the problem of beached whales, Humphrey’s story allows librarians to give a happy ‘yes’ to that often-asked question, ‘Is this a true story?’”—School Library Journal “What happens to Humphrey makes a fascinating and delightful story for young and old alike.”—KIdsGrowth.com Humpback whales are magnificent creatures that sing beautiful songs to each other underwater. In the whole world there are very few of them, so each one is quite special. And they are intelligent. Every winter they travel south, every summer they head north, and they always know the way. But even whales can make mistakes . . . In October 1985 a forty-five-foot long, forty-ton humpback whale wandered into San Francisco Bay and for twenty-six days struggled mightily to find his way back to the ocean. This true, illustrated story of Humphrey’s adventure has been a children’s favorite for more than twenty-five years. The 2014 edition has updated news on whales but retains the beloved art and text for big-ocean-mammal lovers everywhere. Adopted for Reading Rainbow. Wendy Tokuda is a well-known Bay Area media personality with numerous broadcasting awards. Richard Hall is an award-winning TV and film producer in Los Angeles, California. Hanako Wakiyama lives in southern California and is a widely published author and illustrator of children’s books.
