A Garden of Creatures | Sheila Heti
post image
Pickpick

In this gentle picture book for children, the topic of death is viewed in a nontraditional way. Sheila Heti‘s text focuses on metaphysical questions and the interconnectedness of everything on Earth. Esmé Shapiro‘s watercolour, gouache & collage art creates a dreamy, magical setting. #Canadian #kidlit #AllAges

Wolves | Emily Gravett

This is the story of a rabbit who decides to take a trip to the library and rent a book on wolves. He decides on his way home that he is going to open up the book and read it. As he is on his journey he becomes engulfed in the story and becomes a part of it. The reader is eager to keep reading as the rabbit ends up being watched by wolves. I would recommend this story to a younger audience. Published in 2005, Kate Greenaway medal winner.

Kate Greenaway Medal - Wolves was published on August 19th, 2005. This book is very interesting and is about a rabbit that goes to the library and leaves with a book about wolves. When he leaves he decides to read the book but it turns out it all comes to life and finds himself being followed by wolves.

Wolves by Nick Lake and illustrated by Emily Gravett was published in 2005 and won the Kate Greenaway Medal. This books is a fictional picture book. This book tells the immersive tale of a rabbit who checks out a library book about wolves and learns about the creatures while increasingly becoming a part of the informative literature itself.

Taproot | Keezy Young

A sweet all ages graphic novel about two boys in love. One is a ghost, and the other has been able to see ghosts all his life. Nice blend of cuteness—(not too cute)—and creepiness—(not too creepy). Trigger warning for insects!
Nonbinary creator Keezy Young has used a lovely palette of muted colours for one world and lots of black for a spooky connected world. #LGBTQ #AllAges #comics

How Do You Live? | Genzaburo Yoshino

Pickpick

This Japanese children‘s classic, first published in 1937 & not translated into English until 2021 (by Bruno Navasky) surprised me with its subtle power. A year in the life of 12-year-old Copper in Tokyo is interwoven with scientific & historical information as well as philosophical musings. It grapples gently, yet seriously, with self-knowledge and the question of how to live a good life. #kidlit #allages #translation

Nori | Rumi Hara
post image
Pickpick

Cute slice-of-life stories about a preschool girl who is sometimes a little much for her grandmother to handle. The setting is 1980s suburban Japan, where cartoonist Rumi Hara grew up, cared for part-time by her grandmothers. Noriko is always running off, full of curiosity about the world around her, and each episode includes a daydream sequence showing Nori‘s wonderful imagination. The art is fluid, with meticulous backgrounds. #AllAges #comics

A highly informative picture book framed as a series of presentations by children attending an urban community school for various Indigenous Peoples. 12 historic topics (ie assimilation, relocation & activism) are covered succinctly, with further details in the back matter. Each topic is shown to have contemporary relevance, ending with the refrain WE ARE STILL HERE. Brightly coloured naïve art, mostly based on archival photos. #kidlit #AllAges

Borders | Thomas King

Citizenship?
Blackfoot.
This graphic novel illustrated by Métis artist Natasha Donovan adapts for young audiences Thomas King‘s short story about a woman and her son, trapped in between the US and Canadian border stations. Indigenous people have the right to cross the international border without claiming Canadian or American citizenship. In practice, it‘s often not so easy. A powerful portrayal of identity. #Canadian #comics for #AllAges
