This adorable story of father-and-son bonding is as sweet as it is funny. Al "Weird Al" Yankovic
Little Fox and the Wild Imagination is a loving look at the power of imagination and what happens when we lead our kids with love. Maya Rudolph
Little Fox and the Wild Imagination had me at 'Pfffffft!' It's a gorgeous, epic adventure that's fueled by shared imagining born out of love. It has obstacles and struggles, as an epic must. It's exciting, seriously good-hearted, and very funnywords and pictures both. And maybe best of all (spoiler alert) its penultimate scene features 5,000 books! Tony Kushner, author of Angels in America
Santat continues to be a master at balance and composition . . . Parents looking to cheer a moody kid up will find inspiration and a word of caution here. Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
Welcome to Doodleville, everyone!!! This beloved author, Chad Sell, brings us to his next fabulous graphic novel, Doodleville, which grabs the reader, heart and soul!! Doodleville brings us into a normal school, to a normal group of kids, in a normal art club.....except that these kids' doodles come alive!!! Drew loves her doodles dearly, but when one of her doodles goes rogue and hurts the other student's characters, she is wisked away on an adventure that teaches her so much: the complexities of friendship, the strength that lies in trusting yourself, and the power of working together with friends that can save the day!! Chad Sell's trademark combo of fun, vibrant artwork and deeply emotional and human storytelling makes you smile throughout, and reminds you that "being different can make you powerful." Sell's work is also a perfect example of representation as it should be: people of all types existing together, just like in real life.
