And then sometimes, you leave the pots and pans and infestations of sugar ants and video game disputes... and you find yourself being picked up in a shiny black SUV and driven through the South Loop, and you are holding a coffee you didn't make at home, and you begin to cackle at your absurd good fortune. #ala2017 #waldenpondpress #iamabsurdlyluckyandiknowit

This fantastic book is in stores now! It's middle grade, so it's appropriate for kids as young as 8 or so. But like the Harry Potter series, is just as appealing to us grown-ups, too! #books #reading #middlegrade #thevanishingisland #waldenpondpress

1st in a new series perfect for the 2nd/3rd grade crowd! Bat is irresistible! #bookaday #series #waldenpondpress

Congrats to Laurel Snyder, whose beautiful book, ORPHAN ISLAND, is on the National Book Award long list for Young People's Literature. Don't miss this deep, compelling, heartbreaking, and completely one-of-a-kind literary middle grade novel about a mysterious island where, each year, a boat arrives with one new child--and takes the oldest child away. #balzerandbray #waldenpondpress #books #bookstagram #bookcover #nationalbookawards

Y'all. If you haven't read this book, I'm not kidding. Drop everything, pick it up, and prepare to have your world ROCKED. SO MANY QUESTIONS, not enough answers, but so worth it. #mglit #iteachfifth

It's not a book about autism. It's not a book about an autistic kid. It's a book about a kid who wants to look after a baby skunk - and that kid happens to be on the autism spectrum. | A BOY CALLED BAT by Elana K. Arnold | One of the beautiful things about this compassionate book is that author Arnold doesn't ever tell the reader that Bat is autistic - instead she expertly weaves in clues for observant readers to notice: he has nervous tendencies like flapping his hands or sucking on his shirt, he has trouble maintaining eye contact, and doesn't notice when he hurts other kids' feelings. At its heart, however, it's the story of a gentle kid who falls for an unusual furry creature and learns to care for it. Bonus! the cover and inside illustrations are by the wonderful Charles Santoso. "The decision not to use labels to classify any of the characters (except the skunk, which Bat notes belongs to the family Mephitidae) encourages all readers to enjoy and connect with the events and emotions that ring true for them... Comfortably familiar and quietly groundbreaking, this introduction to Bat should charm readers, who will likely look forward to more opportunities to explore life from Bat’s particular point of view." -- @kirkusreviews | "Written in third person, this engaging and insightful story makes readers intimately aware of what Bat is thinking and how he perceives the events and people in his life... Bat’s supportive family and school encourage his strategies for navigating a confusing world, and Santoso’s b&w spot illustrations quietly speak to his isolation, as well as the way he takes to [the skunk kit].

Keeping me company this morning on my (hopefully) last day of jury duty at the courthouse, Laurel Snyder's ORPHAN ISLAND. This may be my third reading, but I needed something to brighten my soul the way that only a truly good book can. Destined to be a classic for certain, and I'm not just saying that because I work with the book. I love it beyond words. We need more books like Laurel's now more then ever. ❤ #mglit #waldenpondpress #reading #kidsbooks #middlegrade #classics #hope #love #readingforthesoul

Nine children live on an island. On the island, everything is perfect... And only one thing ever changes: on one day, each year, a boat appears from the mist upon the ocean carrying one young child to join them and taking the eldest one away, never to be seen again. This story sounds a bit gorgeous, don't you think? It's just come out in the States and I'm going to read it to my son. #orphanisland #laurelsnyder #middlegrade #harpercollins #childrensbooks #bookstagram #instabook #readersofinstagram #booksandtea #mozi #waldenpondpress @harperchildrens

Oh, Laurel Snyder, you are having a marvelous 2017. First there was CHARLIE & MOUSE, a gorgeous easy reader overflowing with wit and charm (and one of my favorite favorites of the year) - then there was THE FOREVER GARDEN, a lovely tale of an intergenerational friendship forged over a mutual love of gardening - and now there's ORPHAN ISLAND, one of the most singular middle grade books of the year, "a meditation on the power and wisdom and closeness and sorrow of childhood" (Kelly Barnhill). A poignant allegory about the last days of being a kid, Orphan Island is one of those timeless, unique books that will be enjoyed by adults and children equally, but in different ways (making it an ideal choice to be read together). Not to be missed. | On the island, everything is perfect. The sun rises in a sky filled with dancing shapes; the wind, water, and trees shelter and protect those who live there; when the nine children go to sleep in their cabins, it is with full stomachs and joy in their hearts. And only one thing ever changes: on that day, each year, when a boat appears from the mist upon the ocean carrying one young child to join them--and taking the eldest one away, never to be seen again. Today's Changing is no different. The boat arrives, taking away Jinny's best friend, Deen, replacing him with a new little girl named Ess, and leaving Jinny as the new Elder. Jinny knows her responsibility now -- to teach Ess everything she needs to know about the island, to keep things as they've always been. But will she be ready for the inevitable day when the boat will come back--and take her away forever from the only home she's known?

Such a sweet book. ❤️

What happens when you take Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, add a healthy dose of Blade Runner, and then pack it into a 431 page intermediate novel written by Laura Ruby? Well, you get York: The Shadow Cipher. And let me tell you -- I haven't felt the way I feel about York since I read Inkheart, and that was 15 years ago (give or take.) Laura Ruby is undeniably a powerhouse and a literary force to be reckoned with. It's not often you find an author who makes everything else (books for adults included) feel like they belong in a grocery store. And maybe that sounds harsh, but it's the truth. When I picked up her YA novel Bone Gap in 2015, I did so for the promise of bees and magical realism. What I was left with was a sense of shock and wonder that comes when you find a book you know no other will be able to place. She captured small town life in a way that I - someone who grew up in a small town - immediately connected with. In York, Laura Ruby has crafted an alternate New York to the one we know, but that feels vibrant, is wonderfully diverse, and is as authentic as the real city. This is due in no small part to the wonderful trio of characters at York's helm. Tess and Theo Biedermann are twins named after the enigmatic architects who arrived in New York in 1978, and disappeared 57 years later leaving only their inventions and the Old York Cipher behind. They live in a Morningstarr apartment house in Manhattan where life is pretty good until a real estate developer announces that the city has agreed to sell him the five remaining Morningstarr buildings, theirs included. For the city of New York, it means the dream of solving the Old York Cipher is at an end. For Theo, Tess, and their friend Jamie Cruz, it means that their families - and dozens of others - will be evicted. In order to save the building they have one option: prove that the York Cipher, and solve it.
