Picture Books, Novelty, Klutz

We’re pleased to share a fantastic lineup of Picture Books along with some fantastic Novelty and Klutz books!



Young Zeus

From the award-winning author/illustrator, G. Brian Karas, comes a witty tale about navigating family and finding one’s voice.  Based on Greek mythology, this exciting and beautifully illustrated story will appeal to boys, girls, their parents, and reluctant readers.  The art and text are warm, funny, and quirky—not what one would expect from Greek mythology.




Told with Jon Muth’s characteristic simplicity and charm, and illustrated with his warmly evocative paintings, Zen Ghosts also features the striking black-and-white brush artwork that we first saw in Zen Shorts, his Caldecott Honor-winning book.

As only Jon J Muth can, Zen Ghosts brings Zen stories to young children and families with the surety of a master storyteller. And this gently eerie offering will give readers little shivers of wonderment to reverberate in their hearts and imaginations for years to come.



Swim Swim final cover

Lerch is one sassy, snazzy fish who seems to have it all: good looks, charm, a great sense of humor, and a perfect smile. But he's lonely (the bubbles and the pebbles ain't talkin'!) and wants to find a friend. But where? Then, with the help of an unexpected "admirer," Lerch meets Dinah, and it's true love from first glance.  This is a fresh, fun read-aloud for parents, teachers, and kids!
