The Picks:

Salt Magic – Margaret Ferguson Books releases the newest graphic novel from writer Hope Larson and artist Rebecca Mock. Things aren’t what Vonciel expects when her older brother, Elber, returns home to their family’s Oklahoma farm. His experiences from serving on the front lines of World War I have changed him. He’s become a serious and responsible man, marrying the girl he left behind and having little time for her. When a mysterious and captivating woman shows up at the farm, confronting Elber about leaving her in France, she puts a curse on the family well, turning the entire town’s water supply into saltwater after he refuses to leave his wife. To find out who the lady in white is, Vonciel must strike out on her own and delve deep into the world of witchcraft, confronting dangerous relatives, shapeshifting animals, a capricious Sugar Witch, and the lady in white herself, the Salt Witch. Vonciel’s journey will change her, but she will learn about love and what it means to grow up along the way. This unique fairy tale will appeal to middle grade readers.

Weenie Featuring Frank And Beans Volume 1: Mad About Meatloaf – Tundra Books starts a new series for early graphic novel readers. Weenie is a meatloaf-obsessed wiener dog. He loves his human Bob, and his friends Beans the guinea pig and Frank the Cat. He also loves naps, adventures, and sharing. In fact, Weenie loves pretty much everything except the mail carrier. But the one thing Weenie loves and desires more than anything else in the world is meatloaf. And he’ll do anything to get it, including donning a trench coat disguise, setting a wild meatloaf trap, and facing down a hungry wolf! Fans of Narwhal and Jelly and The Bad Guys will enjoy this new series.
