A New York Times Best Illustrated Children's Book of 2011!
A picture-book delight by a rising talent tells a cumulative tale with a mischievous twist.
The bear’s hat is gone, and he wants it back. Patiently and politely, he asks the animals he comes across, one by one, whether they have seen it. Each animal says no, some more elaborately than others. But just as the bear begins to despond, a deer comes by and asks a simple question that sparks the bear’s memory and renews his search with a vengeance. Told completely in dialogue, this delicious take on the classic repetitive tale plays out in sly illustrations laced with visual humor-- and winks at the reader with a wry irreverence that will have kids of all ages thrilled to be in on the joke.
The dark lives in the same house as Laszlo. Mostly, though, the dark stays in the basement and doesn't come into Lazslo's room. But one night, it does.
This is the story of how Laszlo stops being afraid of the dark.
With emotional insight and poetic economy, two award-winning talents team up to conquer a universal childhood fear.
Steve just wants to save his baby brother—but what will he lose in the bargain? Kenneth Oppel’s (Silverwing, The Boundless) haunting gothic tale for fans of Coraline, is one of the most acclaimed books of the year, receiving six starred reviews. Illustrations from Caldecott Medalist Jon Klassen.
For some kids summer is a sun-soaked season of fun. But for Steve, it’s just another season of worries. Worries about his sick newborn baby brother who is fighting to survive, worries about his parents who are struggling to cope, even worries about the wasp’s nest looming ominously from the eaves. So when a mysterious wasp queen invades his dreams, offering to “fix” the baby, Steve thinks his prayers have been answered.
All he has to do is say “Yes.” But “yes” is a powerful word. It is also a dangerous one. And once it is uttered, can it be taken back?
Celebrated author Kenneth Oppel creates an eerie masterpiece in this compelling story that explores disability and diversity, fears and dreams, and what ultimately makes a family. Includes illustrations from celebrated artist Jon Klassen.

The short rhyming text makes it a perfect read-aloud treat, and with vivid illustrations from a breakout DreamWorks animator, readers and listeners alike will be thrilled to see what happens one night on Easy Street when a pair of cats start to groove to the beat.
Lo único que desea Steve es salvar la vida de su pequeño hermano, pero ¿cuál será el precio a cambio? Descúbrelo en este inolvidable retrato gótico al más puro estilo Coraline.
Para algunos chiquillos, el verano no es sino un soleado periodo de diversión. Pero para Steve es una temporada más de preocupaciones. De angustia por su pequeño hermano recién nacido, quien lucha día a día por sobrevivir; de inquietud por sus padres, titubeantes y devastados ante la perspectiva de un futuro terrible; de insomnio ante la ominosa presencia de un avispero en el tejado de su casa. Así que, cuando la reina de las avispas anida en sus sueños, ofreciéndole allí sanación para su pequeño hermano, Steve mira en el suceso la solución a todos sus males. Lo único que tiene que hacer es aceptar, decir "sí". Pero en esa palabra se esconde gran poder y peligro. Y una vez que se pronuncia, ¿será posible dar marcha atrás?
Acompañado del ilustrador Jon Klassen, el aclamado escritor Kenneth Oppel esculpe una inquietante obra maestra que aborda la problemática de la incapacidad, de los temores y sueños en la búsqueda permanente de una justa diversidad. De lo que, al final, construye y sustenta a una familia.
