      Description
      What if Peter Pan wanted to take you to Neverland? Would you go?

      A contemporary sequel to J. M. Barrie’s timeless classic Peter Pan, perfect for kids who loved THE LAND OF STORIES and dream of going to Neverland.


      Clover and Fergus are the great-great-grandchildren of Wendy Darling (yes, that Wendy). And now Peter Pan wants to take them to Neverland for the adventure of their lives! But Clover is a little nervous—she’s supposed to look after her brother. Fergus is autistic, and not everyone makes him feel welcome. What will happen to him in this magical world?

      Fergus isn’t nervous at all. To him, Neverland seems like a dream come true! He’s tired of Clover’s constant mothering and wants some independence, like Peter and the Lost Boys have. He wonders, Why can’t the real world be more like Neverland?

      Neverland is fun and free, but it’s also dangerous and even scary at times. Unfamiliar creatures lurk in the shadows, and strange sounds come from the waters. And then the mermaids start to go missing….

      In an imaginative and thoughtful continuation of the story of Peter Pan, Susan Adrian explores Neverland with a fresh perspective and indelible warmth, offering a new adventure based on a beloved classic!

      With a box of colored crayons and an eraser to rub things out, one child sets out to transform the world. By rubbing out ‘hunger’ and coloring in ‘wheat’, the world can be fed. By rubbing out ‘crying’ and coloring ‘laughter’, the world gets to sing, dance and be joyful. Told with poetic simplicity, this book shows how creative imagination – through the use of color and imagery – can change the world from bad to good. An unusual and deceptively simple picture book that imagines a world without discrimination, poverty or inequality.

      This is another simple and beautiful story where a child uses crayons to colour and change the world. Each page the child uses a colour to turn something negative in the world into something positive: yellow turns despair into hope; silver turns drought into rain; purple turns crying into laughter; light blue turns war into peace and so it goes on page after page. It is a message throughout that offers opportunities for discussion at each turn of the page with endless possibilities for children to use their own colours to create their own worlds of hope and a kinder place to be. This is definitely a book I would use for philosophical enquiry and to encourage creativity. - English Association An unusual and deceptively simple picture book that imagines a world without discrimination, poverty or inequality. Beautifully imagined illustrations and thoughtful text give glimpses into the life of other cultures and explore the fabulous colours of the Earth. - Book TrustThis is a story that is told with poetic simplicity, offering beautiful images but also raising questions to set thoughts going in readers' imaginations as a child uses an eraser and crayons to bring happier colours to the world, replacing bad with good. A wonderfully positive, life-affirming book which takes negative topics and turns them into positives. A great basis for discussion. - Parents in Touch A child sets about transforming the world with a simple box of crayons, an eraser . . . and a healthy dose of imagination and creativity. In a story that combines vibrant illustrations and simple poetic text, boredom becomes children playing under a blue sky; drought becomes big silver drops of rain and beautiful umbrellas; hunger is transformed into a lush green field of wheat. This is an uplifting book, full of hope, joy, beauty and peace. - Kids Book Review
      A lyrical exploration of the power of colors. When I Colored the World prompts readers to imagine that silver can make it rain, orange can turn winter to spring, and purple can transform tears into laughter. This brightly illustrated picture book will be a great conversation starter for kids of all ages.

      “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

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.

      Description

      Ryan Andrews'sThis Was Our Pact is an astonishing, magical-realist adventure story for middle-grade readers.

      It's the night of the annual Autumn Equinox Festival, when the town gathers to float paper lanterns down the river. Legend has it that after drifting out of sight, they'll soar off to the Milky Way and turn into brilliant stars, but could that actually be true? This year, Ben and his classmates are determined to find out where those lanterns really go, and to ensure success in their mission, they've made a pact with two simple rules: No one turns for home. No one looks back.

      The plan is to follow the river on their bikes for as long as it takes to learn the truth, but it isn't long before the pact is broken by all except for Ben and (much to Ben's disappointment) Nathaniel, the one kid who just doesn't seem to fit in.

      Together, Nathaniel and Ben will travel farther than anyone has ever gone, down a winding road full of magic, wonder, and unexpected friendship*.

      *And a talking bear.

      "Andrews' marvelously melancholic, earnest graphic novel, [is] at its core an exercise in whimsical self-reflection. This story's a quiet one in which danger flickers and hope flares at odd but fruitful moments...the primarily blue and red mixed-media pictures underscore how nighttime sometimes promises transformation. Brilliantly enchanting." —Kirkus,starred review


      "Andrews crafts a phantasmagoria of events that recall animation from Studio Ghibli and Cartoon Saloon...picaresque episodes and a dreamlike resolution conjure a giddy sensation, like staying up all night. "—Publishers Weekly,starred review

      "Richly imagined and complexly emotional... [This was Our Pact] may owe some of its eerie melancholy and occasionally menacing absurdity to the likes of Lewis Carroll and Shaun Tan, but its message is distinctly its own: what you imagine to be the end of the journey maybe satisfying, but the adventure actually goes on as long as you keep riding down the road."—Booklist,starred review

      "For readers who want an escapist fantasy with a light touch. Hand this title to fans of whimsical or unpredictable adventures such as Neil Gaiman’s Fortunately, the Milk or Madeleine L’Engle’sA Wrinkle in Time."School Library Journal,starred review

      "A great starting point for fantasy lovers who haven’t yet embraced graphic novels." —The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

      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.
