The team behind the Newbery Medal winner and Caldecott Honor book Last Stop on Market Street and the award-winning New York Times bestseller Carmela Full of Wishes once again delivers a poignant and timely picture book that’s sure to become an instant classic.

Milo is on a long subway ride with his older sister. To pass the time, he studies the faces around him and makes pictures of their lives. There’s the whiskered man with the crossword puzzle; Milo imagines him playing solitaire in a cluttered apartment full of pets. There’s the wedding-dressed woman with a little dog peeking out of her handbag; Milo imagines her in a grand cathedral ceremony. And then there’s the boy in the suit with the bright white sneakers; Milo imagines him arriving home to a castle with a drawbridge and a butler. But when the boy in the suit gets off on the same stop as Milo—walking the same path, going to the exact same place—Milo realizes that you can’t really know anyone just by looking at them.

AWARD-WINNING TEAM: In their third collaboration, the author and the illustrator of the Newbery Medal winner and Caldecott Honor book Last Stop on Market Street and the award-winning bestseller Carmela Full of Wishes once again bring us a moving ode to bustling city life and the love that binds a family.

STIRRING, LYRICAL TEXT AND TIMELY MESSAGE: De la Peña’s carefully observed and quietly powerful words deliver a compelling message—that we are more alike than different and that you can’t make assumptions about a person based on what they look like.

VIBRANT ILLUSTRATIONS: Robinson’s colorful, incandescent artwork is bursting with life and effortlessly depicts the joy and love in a family, even when they are faced with difficult circumstances.

WE NEED DIVERSE BOOKS: This story of an observant and artistic African American boy offers a mirror to children who don’t often see themselves in the books they’re reading and a window through which all children can learn to view the world with more empathy and understanding.

A LOVING DEPICTION OF AN INCARCERATED PARENT: Milo and his sister’s long journey culminates in a visit to their incarcerated mother, a reunion filled with love and hope, told with a gentle touch.

A PERSONAL CONNECTION FOR CHRISTIAN ROBINSON: When Christian was a child, his mother was incarcerated, so this story is especially meaningful for him.

Matt de la Peña is the Newbery Medal-winning author of Last Stop on Market Street. He is also the author of the award-winning picture books Carmela Full of Wishes, Love, and A Nation’s Hope: The Story of Boxing Legend Joe Louis, and seven critically acclaimed young-adult novels. Matt teaches creative writing and visits schools and colleges throughout the country. You can visit Matt at mattdelapena.com or on Twitter @mattdelapena.

* “In this rich, multilayered journey, the award-winning creators of Last Stop on Market Street celebrate a city’s kaleidoscope of scenes, offer a glimpse at a child’s experience with parental incarceration, and convey that child’s keen observations about his circumstances and surroundings.”—Publishers Weekly, starred review

* “Readers of Milo Imagines the World will feel compassion stacked on top of heartache on top of humility on top of hope.”—Shelf Awareness, starred review 

“Pictures brimming with activity, an endearing main character, and threads for thinking about art, families, and what we see in others make this a book that will hold up to many readings.”—School Library Journal

“De la Peña’s prose is precise and evocative…His story respects young readers by incorporating their complex interior worlds and the observant ways they attend to issues of class…Robinson’s signature collage illustrations bring Milo and his sister’s distinct personalities to life…This sweet but never saccharine story is a classic in the making.”—BookPage
