      Publishers Weekly, starred review

      “A genre-bending collection of 13 twists on Edgar Allan Poe’s works does Poe proud with this creepy and atmospheric set of stories inspired by a handful of his most well-known works...Strong feminist themes appear throughout, and genres run the gamut from futuristic to gothic to lots in between.

      Description

      What if man journeyed into space in 1869, not 1969? InThe Knights of Mars, the third volume in this breath-taking fantasy graphic novel series, Alex Alice draws on Jules Verne and nineteenth-century romanticism to create a watercolor world of adventure and wonder to enchant adults and younger readers alike.

      When Seraphin, Hans, and Sophie returned from their voyage to the moon, they didn’t come home empty-handed—they brought with them aetherite, a miraculous substance that defies gravity! To keep their secret safe from the Prussians, the trio lives in hiding on a remote island in Brittany. Meanwhile, Seraphin’s father has founded the International Society of Aether, a group of scientists dedicated to the peaceful pursuit of space exploration. But on the eve of their inaugural meeting, he vanishes without a trace!

      The Knights of Aether’s last hope lies in a daring rescue of King Ludwig and Professor Dulac. They will find them on the farthest outskirts of the Prussian empire—the planet Mars!

      “Painful, awkward, heartbreaking, and hilarious, exactly like adolescence was. A touching story about the bonds of friendship and the uneasy and often uncomfortable process of finding oneself.”– MIKE DAWSON(Freddie & Me, Troop 142)

      “THE LONESOME ERA is a sad and sweet tumble through the most chuckleheaded part of adolescence, where wrong choices battle worst choices for dominance under the crushing weight of others’ attempts to sort and define your identity.”— MISS LASKO-GROSS(A Mess of Everything, Escape from “Special”)

      "Allen's assured cartooning blends naturalistic dialogue with charming cartoon animals to create a story that's funny, poignant, and deeply relatable."— SOPHIE GOLDSTEIN(House of Women, The Oven)

      “Jon Allen has this really interesting style and pacing; it’s very understated.”— THE GUARDIAN

      “His droll comic timing and assured, slightly eccentric pacing enlivens any standard ‘burnout roommate’ tropes he draws upon, making for a highly entertaining read.”— THE COMICS JOURNAL

      “If there’s one thing that’s certain about Allen, it’s that his comics are going to continue to reach for their own high standards.”— BLEEDING COOL

      Description
      Award-winning author David Almond pens the dreamlike tale of a boy rediscovering joy and beauty within and around him, even amid sorrow.

      One hot summer morning, only weeks after his father’s death, Davie steps out his front door into the familiar streets of the Tyneside town that has always been his home. But this seemingly ordinary day takes on an air of mystery and tragedy as the residents learn that a boy has been killed. Despite the threat of a murderer on the loose, Davie turns away from the gossip and sets off toward the sunlit hill above town, where the real and imaginary worlds begin to blur around him. As he winds his way up the hillside, Davie sees things that seem impossible but feel utterly right, that renew his wonder and instill him with hope. Full of the intense excitement of growing up, David Almond’s tale leaves both the reader and Davie astonished at the world and eager to explore it.

      Touches of humor, pithy words of Northern common sense, and moments of heightened tension and mystery provide grounding elements in the midst of the reverie...A haunting tale of embracing transformation and finding beauty in an imperfect world.
      —Kirkus Reviews

      Through economic prose expressing Davie’s memories and keen observations, the book subtly shows the protagonist’s grief over losing his father and childhood innocence. Spanning only one day, it evokes the mysteriousness of life, the power of imagination, and moments when childhood and adulthood intertwine.
      —Publishers Weekly

      Almond manages to craft deeply real stories touched by magic that itself feels true, being so well rooted in character and emotion—in this case, Davie’s grief. Thematic and lyrical, colored by Newcastle slang and the English countryside, this is one for the deep thinkers and those who are dealing with grief.

      Description
      There’s a poltergeist in Joe Quinn’s house, and Davie is determined to discover its source in this lively, hopeful graphic storybook from David Almond and Dave McKean.

      Joe Quinn has been telling everyone about the poltergeist in his house, but no one believes him. No one, that is, except Davie. Davie’s felt the inexplicable presence in the Quinns’ house and seen random objects fly through the air. And there’s something else…a memory of Davie’s beloved sister and a feeling deep down that it might just be possible for ghosts to exist. Full of thoughts of hauntings and grief and God, Davie hovers on a precipice of uncertainty and possibility, a space that storyteller David Almond occupies comfortably and returns to again and again — here paired once more with the dynamic, dreamlike mixed-media art of Dave McKean.

      The art amplifies the characteristically dark, rich tones of Almond's prose all the way to a final Dylan Thomas-style promise that "the world and all that's in it will continue to…hold us in its darkness and its light."... A keen collaboration moving seamlessly between worlds inner and outer, natural and supernatural.
      —Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

      This throws Joe into an existential funk, expertly rendered in McKean’s dark, mixed-media illustrations, where overlapping, scribbled sketches embody confusion and conflict, jarring collages evoke an unsettled atmosphere, and negative space echoes absence and haunting memories. Joe navigates his inner turmoil, including grief and religious confusion, forming earnest revelations about life’s poltergeists (i.e., disruptions) and finding peace.

      Description
      A compelling YA thriller with an unreliable narrator and loads of suspense from international bestseller Josephine Angelini. World-weary New York teen Magda is on her last chance. After setting off a scandal in the elite New York City private school scene, she's shipped off to her grandparents' sleepy Pacific Northwest town to spend a summer under the radar and regain her equilibrium. Over-medicated and uninspired, she spends her days in a fog, and finds her only solace in the beautiful hiking trails behind her grandparents' cottage. All that changes the afternoon that a mysterious stranger stumbles across her picnic blanket. Steadfast and strong, but curiously unsophisticated, Bo, breaks through her ennui, and gives her hope that there might be a second chapter to her life story. But when a series of crimes start breaking out across the region, and a body is found in the woods near Bo's encampment, it's clear that Magda's nightmare is just beginning. And she's no longer sure who she can trust... What She Found in the Woods is an addictive and all-consuming thriller with a twist from the internationally bestselling author of the Starcrossed and Worldwalker Trilogies, Josephine Angelini.
      Bio
