Auntie Luce’s talking paintings

2018

by Francie Latour and Ken Daley

"Every winter, a young girl flies to Haiti to visit her Auntie Luce, a painter. The moment she steps off the plane, she feels a wall of heat, and familiar sights soon follow - the boys selling water ice by the pink cathedral, the tap tap buses in the busy streets, the fog and steep winding road to her aunt's home in the mountains. The girl has always loved Auntie Luce's paintings - the houses tucked into the hillside, colorful fishing boats by the water, heroes who fought for and won the country's independence. Through Haiti's colors, the girl comes to understand this place her family calls home."--|cProvided by publisher

Gator, gator, gator!

2018

by Daniel Bernstrom and Frann Preston-Gannon

"A fearless little girl takes off in search of a giant gator--but she's not going into that swamp alone! No way! She wants YOU, the reader, to come along. Off you go, peering through the lush landscapes, looking for that gator! But each time you think you see it? Oops! Just a fox. Or some ducks! Or a snake. Maybe you'll never find the gator, gator, gator...With stunning illustrations from Sendak Fellow Frann Preston-Gannon, readers experience the feeling of being on a real adventure deep in the swamp. Rhyming, repeating, and exhilarating, the text is a delightful read-aloud romp that will entertain and make everyone's heart skip a beat!" --|c(Source of summary not specified)

Poppy & Sam and the leaf thief

2018

by Cathon and Karen Li

"It's a beautiful day in the garden when Poppy and her friend Sam (a panda bear) hear a commotion nearby. Basil is crying, for someone has nibbled the leaves of his crown! But not to worry - Poppy is on the case. Putting their detective skills to work, Poppy and Sam try to catch the thief red-handed, but the friends fall asleep during the stakeout. They attempt to trap the culprit by spreading a moat of honey around Basil, but the thief tunnels below it. Finally Poppy gets the idea to cover Basil in soap. It works! The next morning, Poppy and Sam follow a trail of bubbles to the hiccupping thief-it's Earwig! Very sweetly, Basil forgives Earwig, plucking a leaf from her crown for him. Poppy and Sam introduces a pair of characters with wide kid appeal. Set in a beautiful farmer's field filled with charming details - such as Poppy's hollowed-out pumpkin house - this young graphic novel from an up-and-coming Montreal artist is a delight from start to finish."--|cProvided by publisher
