Tuesdays with Tundra is a monthly post on our new releases. The following books are available today in stores and online!
If I Had a Gryphon
Written by Vikki VanSickle
Illustrated by Cale Atkinson
Hardcover | 32 Pages | Ages 3-7
“VanSickle’s rhymes are unflaggingly exuberant as the girl puts up with noisy harpies, biting chupacabras, and mischievous fairies, and Atkinson fills the pages with visual comedy. In one of the funniest scenes, a dopey-looking kraken grins innocently as its tentacles snag an ocean liner and a rather perturbed whale.” – Publishers Weekly
Noni Speaks Up
Written Heather Hartt-Sussman
Illustrated by Geneviève Côté
Hardcover | 24 Pages | Ages 3-7
“Young readers will definitely enjoy this beautiful picture book! Noni Speaks Up would be particularly useful for parents and teachers as a read-aloud…. The story will provide the basis for lively discussion with parents, caregivers or teachers on topics such as bullying, peer pressure, friendship, responsibility and caring for others. Highly Recommended.” – CM Magazine
Written by Meaghan McIsaac
Hardcover | 275 Pages | Ages 12+
“McIsaac is definitely onto something with this Terminator-like young adult series, and I hope that young readers will have access to Movers in classrooms and libraries alike. This is a strong start to what I hope will be a powerhouse trilogy.” – CM Magazine
