Alison Morris  Enthusiastic champion of children's books. I curate titles for nonprofit First Book, increasing access to books for kids in need. Opinions my own.

2017 has been a GREAT year for graphic novels about fitting in and making friends. There are the recently published must-reads Real Friends by @squeetus and Brave by @svetlana.chmakova, and coming soon is this gem: All's Faire in Middle School by Victoria Jamieson (Newbery Honor-winning author of Roller Girl). It's the story of a smart, likeable kid who's been homeschooled by her parents at the Renaissance Faire where she lives and works but is newly transitioning to public school. Whether they've witnessed jousting and swordplay, readers will empathize with Imogene's struggles to understand social norms and accept or reject conformity. Coming in September from @penguinkids ....

@beanillustration gave a fantastic talk yesterday at our monthly luncheon for the Children's Book Guild of D.C. that included a very early sneak peek at his next book. It's going to steal your heart! #youvebeenwarned #author #illustrator #childrensbooks #picturebooks

Yesterday I inadvertently dressed to match the cover of this forthcoming gem by @judyschachner. Sarabella's Thinking Cap is a heartwarming and lushly illustrated ode to daydreamers. Each page offers ample eye candy to delight the mind and inspire new ideas. This book makes a wonderful gift for artists, dreamers, and visionaries - especially those who've felt misunderstood or overlooked. Coming September 2017 from @penguinkids!

I cried hard at the end, which is all you need to know! A worthy sequel indeed. #nospoilers #greenglasshouse #katemilford #middlegrade #mglit

I thought I knew which book I was going to read after I finish The Ghosts of Greenglass House, but today this advance copy arrived at my office and the first few pages are so engaging it's now moved to the top of my enormous, ever-changing "to be read" pile. Sorry, other books! Karma Khullar's Mustache by @kristiwientge from @simonkids just got a leg up. I promise I'll come back for the rest of you! ...

Belatedly posting this Dec. 2016 photo of a house in our neighborhood that looks like Darth Vader, because I think of it often and always wonder whether the owners are aware of its celebrity resemblance.

You know a book is big AND has Big Apple appeal when you see it advertised on subway posters! Alex & Eliza: A Love Story by Melissa de la Cruz, published by @penguinteen, shown here at West 86th Street station.
