Winter is Coming

August 18, 2014 | by

As crazy as it sounds, we’re about to go into conference for the Winter 2015 books!

I’ve already gotten a start on the picture books, and here are a few of my early favourites:

The Remarkable Tale of a Real Bear
by Walker, Sally M ; Voss, Jonathan D. (01/20/15)
9780805097153 | Henry Holt and Co. | RAI
Cloth | Price: $20.50

I think most Canadians know the story of Winnie-the-Pooh (thanks Heritage Moments!), but this is a lovely retelling, full of great watercolour illustrations.

Coming Home
by Ruth, Greg (11/04/14)
9781250055477 | Feiwel & Friends | RAI
Cloth | Price: $19.50

So this book had me sniffing, and Cheryl was sobbing. Mark remained unaffected, so I guess it doesn’t work on everyone. At any rate, it’s a gorgeous story, told with only a few words, and incredibly deft illustrations.

Second Banana
by Graves, Keith (02/10/15)
9781596438835 | Roaring Brook Press | RAI
Cloth | Price: $20.50

Oop the gorilla is an ape after my own heart. When she came up against a problem, “She had a snack. Snacks always made Oop feel better.” ME TOO, OOP! Anyways, it helps, and she begins a new life as the Amazing Oop!
