The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman, Illustrated by Dave McKean

Little Nobody, or "Bod" Owens, finds himself at a graveyard as a baby after his parents are killed by assassins... and there begins a childhood raised by ghosts, witches, and the mysterious Silas. Now he has to make a decision: will he stay in the world of the (un)dead or join his people among the living? A beautiful, insightful novel that never fails to make me cry. - Yves

The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making by Catherynne M. Valente, Illustrated by Ana Juan

For fans of fairy tales and unwieldy narrators comes a whimsical fantasy which will thrill children and adults, alike. September is spirited away to the magical world of Fairyland, where she travels the world, befriends its creatures, and possibly even topples an unjust little-girl ruler... not to mention the contents of the title! This book can both stand alone beautifully or pull a reader into the entire five-book series for more! -Yves

The Annotated Alice by Lewis Carroll

Alice in Wonderland has always been a favorite of mine. The Annotated Alice reveals how much more joy can be found in this classic story of a little girl who escapes the rules and regulations of Victorian childhood for the rules and regulations of Wonderland. It presents the original text alongside additional illustrations from varied artists, reader answers to Carroll's famous riddles, and a wealth of entertaining commentary based on the cultural references of the time. -Yves

Frizzy Written by Claribel A. Ortega

Frizzy is a beautifully illustrated graphic novel for anyone who has ever had to justify their own appearance. I instantly connected with Marlene’s challenge in trying to be herself amidst a whirlwind of adults, peers, and family members pressuring her to conform. I reveled in all of her successes as she learned to stand up for herself, and I couldn’t put the book down until I knew she’d be okay.

The Story of the Hundred Promises by Neil Cochrane

This elegant, gentle, and above all fiercely loving tale of a trans man’s gratitude to a mysterious Enchanter will captivate any fan of fantasy retellings. I had to stop many times and take a do-not-cry-in-public break at philosophical musings just a little too poignant and quiet moments just a little too personal, wondering repeatedly at the fact that my own experiences were suddenly reflected so easily. A long-needed warm embrace of a book.
