We are thrilled to announce that I Wish, written by Toon Tellegen, illustrated by Ingrid Godon, and translated from the Dutch by David Colmer, is included in Evanston Public Library’s 2020 list of 101 Great Books for Children. You can read more about the award and see the full list here.

The librarians call it “A strange, melancholy, oddly hopeful book for our strange, melancholy, oddly hopeful little world.” It’s joined by beautiful picture books by Jon Klassen, Vanessa Brantley-Newton, Delphine Perret, Sara Lundberg, and many others!
