Hansel & Gretel: A Toon Graphic Written by Neil Gaiman, Illustrated by Lorenzo Mattotti

Neil Gaiman's lyrical, ethereal writing style pairs beautifully with the stunning ink illustrations by Lorenzo Mattotti to create this retelling of the classic Grimm fairy tale. Together these artists breathe new life into a story everyone knows, including important historical context from the time period in which the original story was written. To me, this is the only Hansel & Gretel you'll ever need. —Mo

Bunny & Tree by Balint Zsako

With each reading of this wordless story, I see more. First time through, I understood the barebones buddy road trip featuring a bunny with two different ear colors, an uprooted tree, and a red cart. But then! The expressiveness of the tree, the explosion of color, the intentions unlocked so many more details in Balint Zsako’s beautiful illustrations. Time spent with this lovely book is richly rewarded. For all ages.—Michelle
