Review of the Day: I Wish by Toon Tellegen, ill. Ingrid Godon, translated by David Colmer

I Wish isn’t going to sit quietly in a category. It’s the kind of book that would rather wander off and make up its own categories, expecting you to follow dutifully behind. And you will, because it is strange and wonderful and ultimately very very memorable. Can many other books out there say half as much?

Review of the Day: Just Like Me by Vanessa Brantley-Newton

If you want a book that gives your children raw, unblemished poetry in a form they CAN’T understand and love NOT understanding, this is the book for them.
