9 From the Nine Worlds

A first purchase for all collections where Riordian fans abound.

Just Wreck It All

A heartfelt journey through the importance of self-love and forgiveness, perfect for fans of Sara Zarr and Gayle Forman.

Ba-chan the Ninja Grandma: An Adventure with Little Kunoichi the Ninja Girl

A wonderful family adventure; purchase where intergenerational picture books are in demand.

Goodnight, Anne

An inspired choice for picture book collections, especially where there are fans of the irrepressible Anne looking to share with the little ones in their lives.

I'm an Immigrant Too!

While immigration is certainly a major news item today, the cities and regions in Australia may be too far removed for the majority of American children to relate to. An optional purchase.

Dragon Pearl

With ghosts, pirates, and a rollicking space adventure, there's a little something for everyone here. A recommended purchase for all middle grade collections.

A Winter's Promise

A worthwhile purchase for all fantasy collections.

Be Everything at Once: Tales of a Cartoonist Lady Person

Recommended for most graphic novel collections.

Spying on Whales: The Past, Present, and Future of Earth's Most Awesome Creatures

A fast, fun, and informative read that is ideal for research and pleasure alike.

Spill Zone: The Broken Vow

Between Westerfeld's masterly storytelling and Puvilland's impeccable art, this is a must-read for Spill Zone fans.

Nowhere Boy

Thoughtfully touching on immigration, Islamophobia, and terrorism, this novel is a first-purchase. Hands to fans of Alan Gratz's Refugee.

Steal This Country: A Handbook for Resistance, Persistence, and Fixing Almost Everything

Grand Theft Horse

Superb. Ruffu's tenacity and the book's satisfying conclusion will appeal to fans of John Lewis, Andrew Aydin, and Nate Powell's "March" trilogy.

Earthrise: Apollo 8 and the Photo That Changed the World

A fine snapshot of a milestone event in U.S. and world history for robust nonfiction picture book collections.

Eduardo Guadardo, Elite Sheep

A strong plea for teamwork and assistance, Eduardo and the F.B.I. Gang will appeal to readers not yet ready for The Avengers.


A unique story about the creative process and the journey through grief. Recommended for fiction collections.

The Thorn Queen

Hand this skillfully written fantasy to fans of Maile Meloy's The Apothecary, Michael Scott's The Alchemyst: The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel, Corneilia Funke's Inkheart, and Suzanne Collins' Gregor the Overlander.

Our Celebración!

A lack of specificity and forced rhymes mar this celebración. Consider for collections where Elya's other books are popular.

Winnie's Great War

A heartwarming read-aloud or a gentle independent reading escape, this is a must-have for elementary school collections.

How To Be a Good Creature: A Memoir in Thirteen Animals

Filled with fascinating stories of encounters and relationships with animals in various locations, this moving memoir will leave readers thinking about life on Earth, the creatures we share the planet with, and that "brilliance" we have yet to fully understand.

Kick It, Mo!

Another winning title in the popular series.

So Fast and Other Stories

Although there's not a lot of story in any one entry, the volume offers emergent readers an opportunity to practice their decoding skills and is a colorful alternative to other easy reader series. Additional.

Strange Grace

Purchase where dark fantasy is in demand.


This genre-bending novel is a strong choice for those who enjoy dystopian tales with a mix of fantasy, horror, and humor.

Flow, Spin, Grow: Looking for Patterns in Nature

A good addition to any early nonfiction collection. An especially wonderful book to read aloud and discuss with young nature-lovers.
