Tuesdays with Tundra is a monthly post on our new releases. The following books are available today in stores and online!
Elijah McCoy’s Steam Engine
By Monica Kulling
Illustrated by Bill Slavin
US $17.95 / CAN $19.99
“All Aboard! Elijah McCoy’s Steam Engine is an intriguing and readable introduction to Elijah McCoy that whets the appetite for more, but it also touches on other thought-provoking themes such as slavery, the Underground Railroad, racial discrimination, railroad history, everyday inventions and belief in one’s own ideals…. The wonderful effervescent illustrations of Bill Slavin bring the story to life, capturing the atmosphere of the age with authenticity…. Highly recommended.” – CM Magazine
Dear George Clooney
Please Marry My Mom
By Susin Nielsen
US $15.95 / CAN $17.99
“Nielsen (Word Nerd) has created a narrator as sassy and candid as this memorable novel’s title….Nielsen skillfully balances her story’s keen humor…with poignancy. Especially affecting are Violet’s struggles to accept her father’s new family….” – Starred Review, Publishers Weekly
By Carole Lazar
US $12.95 / CAN $14.99
Teens who get pregnant and raise their babies are often in the news. But what about those children who are growing up with parents scarcely half a generation older than themselves?
Lulu’s Piano Lesson
By Arlene Alda
Illustrated by Lisa Desimini
US $16.95 / CAN $18.99
“…Collage and digital art make for flattened surfaces and stylized shapes, enlivened by varying perspectives. Lulu has a beautiful head of bushy, curly hair and bright blue eyes. As lessons go, it’s a mighty nice one.” – Kirkus Reviews
A Night on the Town
By Caroline Merola
US $15.95 / CAN $17.99
“… Caroline Merola’s bold illustrations saturate every page with colour and create a rich, expressive backdrop to the story. The narrative flows naturally, with light, playful dialogue and a lively pace that will make reading aloud a pleasure. Pickles McPhee and Martha made loveable, spirited heroines…. A Night on the Town is a good-natured, charmingly illustrated book – just the ticket for a vicarious nighttime romp.” – Quill & Quire

Dear George Clooney… sounds fantastic! Not only funny, but also heartfelt!
“All Aboard” would be a wonderful gift for Alexander whose baby brother Adam makes frequent trips to Boston Children’s Hospital. He still is confused about these trips that take his mother away from him. Books have become his companions as volunteer “Ciocias” (aunt in Polish), take him to the library and read to him.
A Night on the Town by Caroline Merola really caught my eye. Heroines Pickles McPhee and Martha sound like wonderful book friends to meet 😀
