Maybe a Fox

Maybe a Fox

Alison McGhee ,  Kathi Appelt

$16.99
Worlds collide spectacularly when Newbery and National Book Award finalist Kathi Appelt and Pulitzer Prize nominee and #1 New York Times bestseller Alison McGhee team up to create a fantastical, heartbreaking and gorgeous tale about two sisters, a fox cub ...and what happens when one sister disappears. Sylvie and Jules, Jules and Sylvie. Better than just sisters, better than best friends. Jules' favourite thing is collecting rocks, and Sylvie's is running - fast. But Sylvie is too fast, and when she runs to the most dangerous part of the river one snowy morning to throw in a wish rock, she is so fast that no one sees what happens when she disappears. At that very moment, in another part of the woods, a shadow fox is born: half of the spirit world, half of the animal world. She, too, is fast, and she senses danger. When Jules goes to throw one last wish rock into the river for her lost sister, the human and shadow worlds collide with unexpected consequences. Written in alternate voices - one Jules, the other the fox - this searingly beautiful tale tells of one small family's moment of heartbreak as it unfolds into something epic, mythic, shimmering and, most of all, hopeful.

Triangle

Mac Barnett ,  Jon Klassen

$24.99
ABBEY'S BOOKSELLER PICK ----- Triangle decides he is going to play a trick on his friend Square. So he leaves his triangle house, walks past triangles of all sizes, past shapes that aren't triangles and some that don't have names until he reaches the squares. Of course, if you play a trick, then you better expect consequences… Deceptively simple text which is fun to read aloud, but the real delight is in how Klassen  can make a simple geometric shape in a muted, almost rusty landscape, express emotion! Lindy Jones

-----

Meet Triangle. He is going to play a sneaky trick on his friend, Square. Or so Triangle thinks...Visually stunning and full of wry humour, here is a perfectly-paced treat that flips the traditional concept book, and approaches it from a whole new angle.

J. C. Burke

$19.99
There are two things you need to know about me. The first is that I remember life by what I was wearing. The second is that I think too much.

See You in the Cosmos

Jack Cheng

$16.99
ABBEY'S BOOKSELLER PICK ----- Alex is 11 in years, but grown-up in experience. His father left long ago, his mother has never gotten over it, his brother has a job elsewhere, and while he cares about Alex and his mother, is too far away to do much more than send money. Alex talks to his hero, Carl Sagan, or to his dog, also called Carl Sagan but mostly he speaks into his ipod, describing what he sees. His plan is to launch the ipod into space, so aliens will know about life on earth. To that end, he takes himself and Carl Sagan across country to the Southwest High Altitude Rocket Festival, befriends some fellow space-nerds, looks for his father, and discovers a lot more about life and how to live. At times poignant, sometimes funny, but always full of heart. Ages 11-13 Lindy Jones

-----

An astonishingly moving middle-grade debut about a space-obsessed boy's quest for family and home. All eleven-year old Alex wants is to launch his iPod into space. With a series of audio recordings, he will show other lifeforms out in the cosmos what life on Earth, his Earth, is really like.  But for a boy with a long-dead dad, a troubled mum, and a mostly-not-around brother, Alex struggles with the big questions. Where do I come from? Who's out there? And, above all, How can I be brave?  Determined to find the answers, Alex sets out on a remarkable road trip that will turn his whole world upside down ...For fans of Wonder and The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, Jack Cheng's debut is full of joy, optimism, determination, and unbelievable heart. To read the first page is to fall in love with Alex and his view of our big, beautiful, complicated world. To read the last is to know he and his story will stay with you a long, long time.

Bone Gap

Laura Ruby

$19.99
ABBEY'S BOOKSELLER PICK ----- This strangely beguiling novel plaits many threads together to create a magical story. Finn's mother left years ago, and his brother Sean gave up his medical studies to look after Finn and the family farm. Months ago, the boys found a beautiful Polish girl, Roza, hiding in their barn; she didn't explain why, but stayed and helped around the place, becoming close to Sean. When she disappears, Sean is hurt and furious, and won't believe Finn when he says she was abducted by a man he can't describe. Then a fine black horse appears, Finn takes to riding it at night. He starts to fall in love with the local girl-with-a-reputation, Petey, who is convinced of her ugliness, and when he takes her riding on the dark horse, they find themselves in magical lands…Meanwhile, Roza is kept in different places, and her story splinters into Finn's, who has to rescue her using all the strange talents he possesses. Subtly drawing upon ancient Greek mythology, this coming-of-age novel is beautifully constructed, intriguing and satisfying. 14+ Lindy Jones

Everyone knows Bone Gap is full of gaps - gaps to trip you up, gaps to slide through so you can disappear forever. So when young, beautiful Roza goes missing, the people of Bone Gap aren't surprised. After all, it isn't the first time someone's slipped away and left Finn and Sean O'Sullivan on their own. Finn knows that's not what happened with Roza. He knows she was taken, ripped from the cornfields by a man whose face he can't remember. But no one believes him anymore. Well, almost no one. Petey Willis, the beekeeper's daughter, suspects that lurking behind Finn's fearful shyness is a story worth uncovering. But as we, like Petey, follow the stories of Finn, Roza, and the people of Bone Gap - their melancholy pasts, their terrifying presents, their uncertain futures - the truth about what happened to Roza is slowly revealed. And it is stranger than you can possibly imagine.

Symphony for the City of the Dead: Dmitri Shostakovich and the Siege of Leningrad

Symphony for the City of the Dead: Dmitri Shostakovich and the Siege of Leningrad

M. T. Anderson

$19.99
A riveting account of the part Russian composer Shostakovich played in the Siege of Leningrad from award-winning author M. T. Anderson. From internationally acclaimed YA author M. T. Anderson comes the true story of a city under siege, thrillingly told and impeccably researched. In September 1941, Adolf Hitler's Wehrmacht surrounded Leningrad in what was to become one of the longest and most destructive sieges in Western history. After three years of bombardment and starvation, culminating in the bitterly cold winter of 1943-44, more than a million citizens lost their lives. In order to survive, many residents burned books, furniture and floorboards to keep warm; they ate family pets and, eventually, each other. In the midst of this bloodshed, Dimitri Shostakovich composed the Leningrad Symphony, a piece that both rallied and eulogized his fellow citizens ...and which would come to play a surprising part in the Allies' eventual victory.

Yvain: The Knight of the Lion

Yvain: The Knight of the Lion

M. T. Anderson ,  Andrea Offermann

$27.99
In his first graphic novel, National Book Award winner M. T. Anderson turns to Arthurian lore, with captivating art by Andrea Offermann bringing the classic legend to life. Eager for glory and heedless of others, Sir Yvain sets out from King Arthur s court and defeats a local lord in battle, unknowingly intertwining his future with the lives of two compelling women: Lady Laudine, the beautiful widow of the fallen lord, and her sly maid Lunette. In a stunning visual interpretation of a 12th century epic poem by Chretien de Troyes, readers are at first glance transported into a classic Arthurian romance complete with errant knights, plundering giants, and fire-breathing dragons. A closer look, however, reveals a world rich with unspoken emotion. Striking, evocative art by Andrea Offermann sheds light upon the inner lives of medieval women and the consequences Yvain s oblivious actions have upon Laudine and Lunette. Renowned author M. T. Anderson embraces a new form with a sophisticated graphic novel that challenges Yvain s role as hero, delves into the honesty and anguish of love, and asks just how fundamentally the true self can really change.

Night Shift: An Insight into Depression That Words Often Struggle to Reach

Night Shift: An Insight into Depression That Words Often Struggle to Reach

Debi Gliori

$24.99
A groundbreaking picture book on depression with stunning and powerful illustrations.

With stunning black and white illustration and deceptively simple text, author and illustrator Debi Gliori examines how depression affects one's whole outlook upon life, and shows that there can be an escape - it may not be easy to find, but it is there. Drawn from Debi's own experiences and with a moving testimony at the end of the book explaining how depression has affected her and how she continues to cope, Debi hopes that by sharing her own experience she can help others who suffer from depression, and to find that subtle shift that will show the way out.

'I have used dragons to represent depression. This is partly because of their legendary ability to turn a once fertile realm into a blackened, smoking ruin and partly because popular mythology shows them as monstrous opponents with a tendency to pick fights with smaller creatures. I'm not particularly brave or resourceful, and after so many years battling my beasts, I have to admit to a certain weariness, but I will arm-wrestle dragons for eternity if it means that I can help anyone going through a similar struggle.'

The Fix-it Man

The Fix-it Man

Dimity Powell ,  Nicky Johnston

$24.99
It's handy having a dad who can fix just about anything. A young girl believes her father is the king of fixing things. But following the death of her mother, she discovers that broken hearts are not as easy to repair as damaged toys and cracked teapots. Together, she and her father find a way to glue back the pieces of her lives. The Fix-It Man is a poignant picture book that explores how a child can cope with the loss of a parent (in this case, the young girl's mother). Repairing damaged emotions is not as straightforward as gluing a broken kite back together or sewing up a torn toy. And grief affects all members of a family, with each responding in their own way to the loss. By sticking with her father, the young girl is able to strengthen her resilience and ability to cope with one of life's harshest experiences. The author was encouraged to seek publication for this story after receiving the endorsement of several grief counsellors who work with children and who recognised the need for a book such as this.

This is How We Do it: One Day in the Lives of Seven Kids from Around the World

Matt Lamothe

$29.99
This Is How We Do It follows the lives of seven REAL kids from Japan, Uganda, Russia, Iran, Peru, India and Italy for a single day. From the time each kid wakes up until the time they fall asleep, the details of their days differ: their homes are different, their schools are different, even how they play is different. In Japan, Kei plays Freeze Tag. In Uganda, Daphine likes to jump rope. In Russia, Oleg plays hockey almost every day after school. But the shared rhythm of their days--and this one world we all share--unite them together. This genuine exchange between real kids provides a window into lifestyles and traditions that may differ from our own, as well as a mirror reflecting the common experiences that unite us all. Inspired by his own travels to write this book, Matt Lamothe will transport readers across the globe and back with this gorgeously illustrated picture book.

Emily knows her big brother, Tom, wants to leave Hillside Farm and go overseas to the war, but Emily doesn't want him to go. 'Everyone else is going,' said Tom to Emily when their uncle was gone.

The Soldier's Gift is an intimate window into that time, as portrayed by a young girl and her father, as their lives change and shift to accommodate the intrusion of world politics and the very personal loss of family.
