Another by Christian Robinson

I’m a huge fan of Christian Robinson’s colorful and playful illustrations which, in previous books, have illuminated the words of notable authors like Matt de la Peña. Another is a book all his own. In this wordless romp, a little girl and her cat venture through a portal into another world where left is right, up is down, and doppelgangers abound. This topsy-turvy book is so much fun and is sure to inspire the curiosity, creativity, and imagination of young readers everywhere. - S.B.

The First Bad Man by Miranda July

Hilarious and poignant, the fascinating novel brings us into the strange world of Cheryl Glickman, whose awkward, anxiety-fueled tendencies make us cringe in discomfort--or from the realization that we see ourselves in her thoughts and behaviors. The prose is smart and evocative, leaving the reader with new insights about what it means to love and be loved. - Kristi
