By Tina Oziewicz
Illustrated by Aleksandra Zając
Translated from the Polish by Jennifer Croft

An unruly cast of emotions come alive in this romping dreamworld.Tina Oziewicz’s words hum with truth, and Aleksandra Zając’s illustrations bloom and burst with charming details like a sail constructed out of a pair of billowing long johns or a red slipper falling from a contented paw. Taking in the perfect harmony of this book is like taking a long gulp from a trusty thermos and filling up with warmth.

JOÃO ON A WIRE

Written and Illustrated by Roger Mello
Translated from the Portuguese by Daniel Hahn

A fisherman’s young son lies in bed at night, tucked into his homespun bedcover. As he drifts off to sleep, he dreams that the bedcover comes to life, weaving and re-weaving itself into whimsical shapes and figures. Mello brings João’s nocturnal flights of fancy to life with intricate line drawings that pay homage to Brazilian folk art and embroidery.
