Wait (Kobo eBook)
As a boy and his mother move quickly through the city, they're drawn to different things. The boy sees a dog, a butterfly, and a hungry duck while his mother rushes them toward the departing train. It's push and pull, but in the end, they both find something to stop for.
Acclaimed author/illustrator Antoinette Portis' signature style conveys feelings of warmth, curiosity, humor and tenderness in this simple, evocative story.
A Neal Porter Book
This book is so fantastically unique and fills a niche for young readers that dearly needed to be filled. This book is about a young tiger who, with the help of her imaginary friend, fights off her nightmares that try to scare her at night. This book is empowering for those kids going through nightmares and wondering what to do.... Empowering, and also utterly delightful! Lovely illustrations and phenomenal storytelling, this book is one of my go-tos. Part graphic novel, part picture book, I absolutely adore Tiger Vs. Nightmare!!
