      Description

      A small boy’s encounter with a beetle could have drastic consequences in this simple, strongly moral story, with strikingly original art from one of Italy’s finest children’s book illustrators.

      When Stephen spots a beetle he takes off his shoe and raises his arm, ready to strike... but then he has second thoughts. He lays his head down on the ground and the beetle walks right up to him. At the last moment the beetle turns aside and each can go on with the day, having avoided the worst.

      In this very simple story Jorge Luján presents the kind of deep moral question that can occur in even the smallest child’s day. Chiara Carrer’s very original etched and painted illustrations perfectly complement the story, and are in and of themselves beautiful works of art.

      Description

      A very real, funny, touching picture book about a boy’s conflicted feelings for his father, from Belgium’s illustrious children’s book creator, Klaas Verplancke.

      Johnny’s daddy has smooth cheeks, an apple in his throat and sounds like a mom when he sings in the bath. At other times a cactus grows out of his chin and his breath smells like cauliflower. At times he has warm hands and his fingers taste like applesauce. Other times his hands are cold and flash like lightning, and he becomes a thunder daddy. When this happens Johnny wants to find a new daddy, but he eventually realizes that thunder daddies don’t last forever. And that there’s nothing like the comfort that comes from those we love.

      Klaas Verplancke’s story, with its humorous, energetic and imaginative illustrations, will strike a chord with many young children and parents as they discover that love sometimes means setting limits, and that people do get angry, but that where there is love, it doesn’t last.

      Bio

      Klaas Verplancke is a world-renowned illustrator, author and graphic designer who has exhibited his work in his native Belgium and abroad. His illustrations typically reveal his sense of humor, poetic imagination, and somewhat surrealistic view of reality. He has won the BolognaRagazzi Award, was a finalist for the Hans Christian Andersen Award and has been nominated six times for the Astrid Lindgren Memorial Award for his oeuvre as a whole. The inspiration for this book came from his close relationship with his young son. He lives in Bruges, Belgium.

      . . . Verplancke gives us a wonderful image of father and son.
      Reminiscent of Where the Wild Things Are in its visual transformations and emotional intensity, but with a more present and openly loving parent.
      This book’s real strength lies in its illustrations and the juxtaposition of the two sides of the father’s personality, the latter being something with which most readers will identify. Overall, Applesauce is a good addition for libraries, particularly public libraries as it is aimed at younger readers.

      Description

      A gentle, sweetly illustrated story about two snow children who discover the importance of global warming and decide to do something about it.

      Yuta and Yuna are snow children. They are attending an ice festival in their hometown when they hear about a meeting on global warming. Yuna doesn’t want to go, but Yuta persuades her. On their way they meet a family of rabbits who have almost been buried by an avalanche, hungry polar bears who can no longer hunt on the frozen ocean, and a herd of caribou who can’t find the grasses they like to eat.

      Snow people from all around the world have gathered for the meeting, and although Yuta and Yuna feel shy, they tell the group about the animals they have encountered. "Colder is better," some people say. "Maybe, but what can we do about the heat?" say others.

      But when shimmering snowflakes begin to fall, all the snow people are filled with joy. They recognize that they have a beautiful world and that it is up to them to save it.

      This is a picture book that works well as a story and as a vehicle to address the crucial issue of global warming with very young children. It includes facts on the effects of climate change as well as a list of things that even the youngest readers can do to help the situation.

      Bio

      Description

      Here at last are all five of Marie-Louise Gay’s beloved Stella picture books bound into one glorious volume.

      Marie-Louise Gay published Stella, Star of the Sea more than ten years ago. It was an immediate hit, and since then she has written and illustrated four more books featuring the engaging red-headed heroine, Stella, and her little brother, Sam — Stella, Queen of the Snow; Stella, Fairy of the Forest; Stella, Princess of the Sky and, most recently, When Stella Was Very, Very Small. With gentle humor, freshness, a sense of whimsy and exquisite watercolors, Marie-Louise Gay gives us stories about two young siblings discovering their world.

      Stella, Star of the Sea: Stella and Sam are spending the day at the sea. Stella has been to the sea before and knows all its secrets, but Sam has many questions and Stella has an answer for them all. The only thing she isn’t sure of, and neither are we, is whether Sam will ever come into the water.

      Stella, Queen of the Snow: Winter was never so magical as in this marvelous book about Stella and Sam discovering a familiar landscape transformed by a heavy snowfall. Stella delights in showing Sam the many pleasures of a beautiful winter’s day, from skating and sledding to making snow angels in a fluffy, white magical world.

      Stella, Fairy of the Forest: Little brother Sam wonders whether fairies are invisible. Stella assures him that she has seen hundreds of them and says that if she and Sam venture across the meadow and into the forest, they are likely to find some. But Sam surprises Stella and himself by having a few ideas of his own.

      Stella, Princess of the Sky: Stella and Sam explore the wonders of the natural world. A vast luminous sky, the sun, the stars and the rising moon form the backdrop for their nocturnal expedition.

      When Stella Was Very, Very Small: This is the story of a lovely tiny Stella, whose world is full of small adventures and slivers of magic. And she delights in sharing it all with Sam when he comes along.

      ... Nocturne is another brilliant example of the highly imaginative and engaging nature of Isol's work in children's literature (and is another strong example of why her work has been nominated twice for the international Hans Christian Anderson Award for children's literature)

      Description

      In this sequel to A Few Blocks, acclaimed artist Cybèle Young uses collage and paper sculpture to tell the story of an older sister creating imaginary worlds to persuade her brother to eat his lunch. In the end he turns the tables.

      It’s time for Ferdie to eat lunch, but he’d much rather find the special part for his fighter ship. When big sister Viola promises to help him, he comes to the table. But he finds broccoli on his plate, and carrots! Ever resourceful and imaginative, Viola convinces Ferdie that dinosaurs ate broccoli to escape their fiercest predators, and that carrots are just like the Orange Power Sticks that aliens eat for super vision. Doesn’t Ferdie want to be just like them? Viola continues to persuade Ferdie to eat up, but when her energy finally flags, it’s Ferdie’s turn to create a wonderful surprise.

      Just as in A Few Blocks, an ordinary event seen through a child’s eyes becomes an amazing adventure. This time the children switch back and forth between the lunch table and the elaborate fantasy worlds they imagine (shown in Cybèle Young’s intricate paper sculptures, which she has created from paintings of the children’s surroundings). At the end of the story, the world of the imagination and the everyday magically come together, and Viola and Ferdie each enjoy a few bites.

      Bio

      Cybèle Young is an award-winning artist who exhibits her exquisite paper sculpture (Japanese paper printed with etched copperplates) internationally.

      Description

      This beautifully illustrated book tells the story of  "La Malinche," the remarkable woman who became an interpreter and advisor to Hernán Cortés. To some she was the mother of a mestizo Mexico, while to others she was a traitor to her people.

      In the early 1500s, Hernán Cortés and his conquistadors defeated the great Aztec Empire, built a new city for colonists from Spain and took control of vast lands stretching from today’s southwestern US down through most of Central America.

      But many people don’t know that one of the reasons for the success of this conquest was the invaluable help of a beautiful woman, Princess Malinali, known today as La Malinche. She was a Náhuatl princess from the coast lands of Tabasco whose kingdom was at war with the Aztec Empire. Because of her knowledge of Maya and Náhuatl languages, and her rapid acquisition of Spanish, she came to act as an interpreter and advisor to Cortés. She also bore him a child.

      La Malinche is described here, as she often is in Mexico, as the embodiment of a new culture, one in which the mixing of races, Spanish and Aztec, created a new world. This view is not shared by all Mexicans, however. For some La Malinche is the symbol of a great betrayal that led to the death of millions of her fellow indigenous people. No one disagrees, however, that La Malinche was an extraordinary woman, whose life is fundamental to understanding the history of ancient and modern Mexico.

      Includes beautiful illustrations by Pablo Serrano, maps, a timeline and further reading.

      Bio

      Francisco Serrano is a noted Mexican poet who also writes plays, librettos and children’s books and edits literary anthologies.

      Pablo Serrano is a visual artist who studied at UNAM (Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México), where he took classes with the painter Luis Nishizawa. He has shown his work in solo and group exhibitions and received an honorable mention in the Aguascalientes 2002 competition for young artists. He has also illustrated The Poet King of Tezcoco.

      Ever respectful of the capacity of her audience to comprehend the big words and concepts she deals in, the author delivers a gothic tragicomedy that is both a worthy sequel and as able as Primrose to stand on its own.

      Description

      A young motherless girl becomes friends with a teacher/writer who weaves the story of their friendship into her novel. A moving book about promises and the nature of stories.

      On a train trip with her grandmother, young Banafsheh meets a woman who reminds her of her dead mother. The woman is a teacher and a writer, and she promises she will call Banafsheh and come and tell her stories. Later, the teacher weaves the encounter into a story that she tells to the children in her classroom. The children are entranced by the story and imagine how it will turn out. Surely, they say, the teacher will call the little girl.

      But the teacher never calls, though Banafsheh waits faithfully by the phone and refuses even to go out to play. Meanwhile, the teacher is disconcerted by her class’s reaction, and she agonizes over how to end her story. As a writer, she feels that the story is more important than anything else, and that the ending must be exciting and eventful, no matter what. Perhaps Banafsheh will even have to become ill and die?

      In the end, the teacher does visit Banafsheh, but finds that it is too little too late. Banafsheh is very angry with the teacher, and hurt. Finally, the teacher makes the biggest sacrifice she knows — her manuscript — in order to save the friendship.

      This is a thought-provoking and emotionally powerful novel that raises intriguing and child-friendly questions about how real life and stories are interwoven, who owns stories, and whether they can ever truly disappear.
