Tuesdays with Tundra is a monthly post on our new releases. The following books are available today in stores and online!
A Tinfoil Sky
By Cyndi Sand-Eveland
Hardcover | 224 pages | Ages 10-14
Cyndi Sand-Eveland’s work with homeless youth gives her characters an authenticity no reader will forget. Ultimately, a story of hope and acceptance, A Tinfoil Sky is a powerful, can’t-put-it-down novel.
“…a gritty and moving follow-up to her 2008 debut, Dear Toni…. Sand-Eveland doesn’t shy away from the reality of life on the streets….” – Quill & Quire
JoJo the Giant
By Jane Barclay
Illustrated by Esperança Melo
Hardcover | 32 pages | Ages 4-7
Jane Barclay’s heartwarming story explores a theme that speaks to every child. Esperança Melo’s wonderful art complements the text to create a charming book that’s bound to become a favorite.
“…Jane Barclay’s charming new picture book is a kindly story about frustration, determination, and a loving bond between mother and son…. Illustrator Esperança Melo … uses a rich, glowing palate of vivid reds, blues, and ochres to reinforce the text’s feeling of familial warmth and JoJo’s brave spirit…. The story ends with a sweet surprise, and JoJo feeling 10 feet tall.” – Quill & Quire
