Tuesdays with Tundra is a monthly post on our new releases. The following books are available today in stores and online!
Written by Maureen Fergus
Illustrated by Dušan Petričić
Hardcover | 40 Pages | Ages 5-9
“InvisiBill is a brilliant portrayal of the frustrations that come with feeling young and powerless in everyday scenarios…. Fergus spins the situation into a lighthearted comedy without losing sight (pun maybe intended) of the story’s compassionate side…. InvisiBill is a book equal parts silly and humane.” — National Post
The Good Little Book
Written by Kyo Maclear
Illustrated by Marion Arbona
Hardcover | 40 Pages | Ages 5-9
“Arbona presents a compelling, sequential, aerial view of a sullen child who nonetheless becomes fascinated by reading. Vivid, fantastical artwork augments the ensuing … sentences about book-induced trips to faraway places and varied emotions.” — Kirkus Reviews
Written by Phoebe Wahl
Hardcover | 32 Pages | Ages 4-8
“A father’s thoughtful explanation provides a helpful perspective for a child’s loss…. There’s an old-fashioned feel to this simple story and its timeless illustrations, created with watercolor, collage, and colored pencil and reminiscent of Goodnight Moon in mood, design, and palette…. Both words and illustrations emphasize comfort and the security a family can provide…. A reassuring story about death in the natural world, thoughtfully designed and illustrated.” — Starred Review, Kirkus Reviews
The Bambino and Me
Written by Zachary Hyman
Illustrated by Zachary Pullen
Trade Paperback | 48 Pages | Ages 6-9
“The tale is entirely fictional, but it manages to capture the essence of that extraordinary time and the larger-than-life persona that was Babe Ruth. Hyman invests George’s voice with boyish enthusiasm and conversational language filled with contemporary syntax. Pullen’s oddly proportioned, compelling illustrations, rendered in oil paint and walnut oil, are in perfect tandem with the nostalgic spirit of the text and wonderfully depict every aspect of the characters’ emotions.… Lively, fun-filled and altogether delightful.” — Starred Review, Kirkus Reviews

We enjoy baseball at our place, so my choice would be The Bambino and Me.
Hi, I would love to have a copy of Sonya’s Chickens. However, my family will definitely be reading all of these books. Thanks for the opportunity!
I support the “we need diverse books” campaign, and “Sonya’s Chickens” seems to fit the bill.
What a great selection of books- I’ve already had the pleasure of reading The Good Little Book and would recommend! I would love to read Sonya’s Chickens- have been hearing and reading great things about it on Twitter 🙂
The Good Little Book sounds like a book my daughter would enjoy:) Thank you for the contest!
