GREAT RECEPTION TO OMAR: Omar has been chosen as a Global Read Aloud, NPR Best Book of the Year, Kirkus Best Book of the Year, and a USBBY Outstanding International Book Selection among many other accolades.
COLLECT ALL 4 BOOKS: When this book pubs there will be 4 Planet Omar books out in the span of less than two years, keeping Omar at the front of shelves and kids’ minds.
WE NEED DIVERSE BOOKS: This is an important series that Zanib Mian wrote for children who do not normally see themselves in stories about everyday struggles.
PROBLEM-SOLVING SKILLS: Omar’s wonderful point of view shows that with a little creativity and a lot of love, life’s biggest problems can always be solved, even if it’s not in the way you thought.
POIGNANT AND HUMOROUS: Omar’s narration is friendly, funny, and accessible. It’s a wonderful mixture of breezy and thoughtful as the highs and lows of the story play out.
ENERGETIC AND VISUAL PACKAGE: Illustrations and bold design throughout highlight Omar’s big imagination and positive outlook on life. The paper-over-board format is perfect for backpacks and bus rides.
PAPERBACKS COMING!: Plans are in the works for Omar paperbacks to start coming out in spring 2023.
