Praise For…


"The children demand anthropomorphic vehicles. And among them, none is as adorable as the vintage blue pick-up in the Little Blue Truck series.... [T]he only thing that would make these books cuter is if the truck only ever spoke in 'beeps'—and he does!" —The A.V. Club

"McElmurry’s richly rendered scenes and the animals’ elegant costumes conjure up a sense of nostalgia that befits Little Blue Truck’s own vintage looks." —Publishers Weekly

"Lovely curvy shapes and autumn colors fade to dusky blues as night falls, and children are sure to notice the traditional elements of a Halloween party: apple bobbing, lit jack-o'-lanterns, and punch and treats. Beloved Little Blue takes a bit of the mystery—and fear—out of Halloween costumes." —Kirkus

Another picture book favorite! Natsumi is very used to getting told by her family that she does things with too much vigor: she is too loud, or she is doing things too much, or too hard, or too wild… No one seems to see this as a strength, except for her grandfather, who guides her to a hobby that she was born for, where she can be as loud and as wild as she wants. Natsumi is a perfect story about how there is something perfect for each of us, and to stay true to yourself until you find that!
