I’m a Good Person. How Can I Be Racist?

ROSALIND

One vodka martini, with olives and a cocktail onion if the bartender has them—that’s my routine when I come back to the hotel after an evening speech. One night I came back to a hotel outside of Phoenix and sat down at the bar next to a man who was nursing a beer and watching a news program. “You work at a school?” he asked. The assistant principal had driven me back to the hotel and thanked me in the lobby right next to the bar. “I’m sorry but I overheard your conversation with the person you came in with.”

his face was filled with pain. Could I ask for your advice? I know you’re tired and I really don’t want to bother you but I’m just so worried. Of course, I said yes—even though I was exhausted. I know the expression of a parent who is afraid for their child and losing their connection to them.

WORK AND COMMUNITY

Many people struggle to have honest conversations about race, even those who identify as anti-racist allies. For anyone who wants to have more productive discussions, Courageous Discomfort is an empowering handbook that teaches you how to do just that. In these pages, authors (and best friends) Shanterra McBride, who is Black, and Rosalind Wiseman, who is white, discuss their friendship and tap into their decades of anti-racism work to answer the 20 questions about race they get asked most often. Each chapter invites you into the conversation without judgment and inspires thoughtful reflection and discussion. While there is no perfect solution or script for every maybe racist, sort-of racist, or blatantly racist situation, learning how to have uncomfortable but necessary conversations helps us all build the relationships we desire, including the ones with ourselves.

I don’t know what’s happening to him. His voice got quieter. He’s a good kid. We didn’t raise him to be like this. “What’s ‘like this’?”

He sheepishly told me that he lived outside of Dallas in a “really nice neighborhood.” He had two sons who were sixteen and eighteen and he was really worried about the older one. He looked down at the bottle in front of him;

Different from what we believe. “What does he believe?” He’s not racist but he says things . . .

From famous craniums and prominent breasts to ancient spleens and bound feet, this literary dissection of body parts brings the past to life in a whole new way. With their inimitable wit and probing intelligence, authors Kathryn and Ross Petras look at the role the human body has played throughout history as each individual body part becomes a jumping-off point for a wider look at the times. From what Charles II of Spain’s jaw reveals about the repercussions of inbreeding to what Anne Boleyn’s heart says about the Crusades and the trend of dispersed burials, these quirky and far-ranging yet interrelated stories are packed with little-known historical facts and fascinating anecdotes that will entertain, enlighten, and delight even the most well-read history buff.

KATHRYN and ROSS PETRAS are the brother-and-sister writing team behind many bestselling word-oriented books. They host a podcast with NPR’s KMUW called You’re Saying it Wrong. They live in Granada, Spain, and Toronto, Canada.

Told through five connected short story comics, Wash Day Diaries follows four best friends—Kim, Tanisha, Davene, and Cookie—through the ups and downs of their daily lives in the Bronx.

By turns quiet and laugh-out-loud funny, touching and triumphant, the stories in Wash Day Diaries pay loving tribute to the beauty and endurance of Black women and their hair. JAMILA ROWSER is a Miami-based writer and publisher creating comics for Black and Brown women through Black Josei Press. She is also the co-founder of Geek Girl Brunch.

FROM GAY TO Z A Queer Compendium • By Justin Elizabeth Sayre

Based on Justin Sayre’s five-part show in New York City, this humorous illustrated compendium celebrates LGBTQIA+ history and culture, from A to Z. From ABBA to addiction, hair and makeup to HIV, Fannie Flagg to fierce, Sayre offers their own perspective on the things that have influenced gay culture today, including iconic figures, historical moments, ongoing issues in the LGBTQIA+ community, and everything in between. As queer culture is always evolving and different for everyone, this book does not serve as a definitive guide—instead, Sayre encourages readers to use this knowledge to reflect on the things that have informed their personal identities. Engagingly written and beautifully designed, From Gay to Z is as distinctive as it is dynamic. JUSTIN ELIZABETH SAYRE is a playwright, performer, and television writer.

THE ART OF WHISKY The Vanishing Spirits of Single Malt Scotch Photographs by Ernie Button Text by Charles MacLean and Howard A. Stone

The Art of Whisky is a breathtaking and unusual gift book for whisky connoisseurs, celebrating the spirit from an unexpectedly beautiful angle. By chance, award-winning photographer Ernie Button noticed the intricate patterns formed in the residue at the bottoms of (almost) empty whisky glasses—each as different as a snowflake—and began photographing them with inventive lighting techniques. The resulting images are exquisitely gorgeous, evoking earthly landscapes and extraterrestrial visions. This book collects nearly 100 of those photos—each one more amazing than the last—and features delightful touches such as tasting notes, information on the science of what we’re seeing, and writing about single malt Scotch by Scotland’s leading whisky expert Charles MacLean, commissioned exclusively for this book.

ERNIE BUTTON is an award-winning photographer based in Phoenix, Arizona. Button’s photographs have been featured in National Geographic magazine, the New York Times, Whisky Advocate, American Photo, Popular Photography, Esquire, Wired, Smithsonian, Whisky Quarterly, and Popular Mechanics. CHARLES MACLEAN, M. B. E., has been writing about whisky for 40 years and has published 17 books on the subject. He has been described by the London Times as “Scotland’s leading whisky expert.” He lives in Edinburgh, Scotland. HOWARD A. STONE is a professor in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at Princeton University. He won several prizes for his study of fluid dynamics, and has been elected to the National Academy of Engineering and the National Academy of Sciences.

THE ART OF LIGHTYEAR

THE ART OF TURNING RED

By Disney and Pixar

By Disney and Pixar

The Art of Lightyear explores the exciting visuals of Disney and Pixar’s new original feature film. Lightyear is a sci-fi actionadventure and the definitive origin story of Buzz Lightyear (voiced by Chris Evans)—the hero who inspired the toy featured in the beloved Toy Story series. The film reveals how a young test pilot became the Space Ranger that we all know today. With production designs, storyboards, colorscripts, exclusive commentary from the creative team, and much more, The Art of Lightyear will take readers behind the scenes of the making of this highly anticipated new animated film.

The Art of Turning Red explores the exciting visuals of Disney and Pixar’s new original feature film Turning Red, directed by Academy Award–winner Domee Shi (who won for the Pixar short Bao). In Turning Red, Mei Lee is a confident, dorky 13-yearold torn between her obligations as a dutiful daughter and the chaos of adolescence. And as if changes to her interests, relationships, and body aren’t enough, whenever she gets too excited (which for a teenager is practically ALWAYS), she “poofs” into a giant red panda! Packed with production designs, storyboards, colorscripts, exclusive commentary from the creative team, and much more, The Art of Turning Red will take readers behind the scenes of the making of this charming new animated film.

CATS IN SPRING RAIN A Celebration of Feline Charm in Japanese Art and Haiku • Curated and translated by Aya Kusch

This delightful book pays homage to the cat through artfully curated Japanese poetry and prints. No one captures the graces and idiosyncrasies of cats quite like the painters, printmakers, and haiku masters of Japan. From the Edo to the Showa periods, many artists turned their gaze toward their small feline companions, who not only serve as charming protagonists, but also represent the turning of winter into spring. Portraits in words and ink elevate the everyday adventures of cats: taking a nap on a Buddha statue’s lap or daintily eating a rice ball. This collection of poems, prints, and paintings will inspire the serenity and wonder embodied by these creators—and by the cats themselves. A jacketed paperback with thoughtful design touches, this volume includes each poem in both English and Japanese. AYA KUSCH is an avid haiku reader and bona fide cat adorer living and working in San Francisco.

DELUXE EDITION WITH NEW ESSAYS AND NEVER-BEFORESEEN PROOF SHEETS!

“ I’ve never seen a photographer capture honesty the way Jim did. . . . His work will live on in our souls and imaginations forever.” —Nikki Sixx

THE ROLLING STONES 1972 50th Anniversary Edition • Photographs by Jim Marshall • Words by Joel Selvin • Essays by Keith Richards, Anton Corbijn, and Nikki Sixx

The year 1972 brought together two legends of rock ’n’ roll at the peaks of their careers: Jim Marshall and the Rolling Stones. Selected by Life magazine to photograph the Stones’s Exile on Main St. tour, Marshall created iconic images of the band, onstage in their full glory and backstage in moments of unguarded camaraderie. Marshall’s ability to capture the essential spirit of an artist and the transformative power of music is matched only by the Stones’s larger-than-life energy. Fifty years later, these photographs retain the power to thrill and inspire. This definitive edition presents the images as they were meant to be seen: at a larger size and in the rich, high-contrast tones Marshall favored. The original content is enhanced with never-before-seen proof sheets and two new essays. This is the ultimate, immersive experience of one of the greatest moments in rock ’n’ roll history.

JIM MARSHALL (1936–2010) was widely celebrated as a premier music photographer and a pioneer of the genre. With his trademark Leica camera, he produced some of the most intimate and iconic images in music history. JOEL SELVIN is a longtime music journalist and the author of 17 books. KEITH RICHARDS is a guitarist, vocalist, songwriter, and founding member of the Rolling Stones. ANTON CORBIJN is a photographer, film director, and designer. NIKKI SIXX is a musician, songwriter, radio host, photographer, and cofounder of Mötley Crüe.

ROSA PARKS

MICHELLE OBAMA That Michelle Obama is most famous for her role as First Lady of the United States is proof enough that the Office of the President is in a category of its own. How could a woman who rose to the top of her class through grade school and high school in Chicago’s public school system, who went on to graduate cum laude from Princeton University, and then from Harvard Law School, who had a career with a prestigious law firm before leaving to put her prodigious talents into so effectively helping others achieve greatness—how could this incredibly accomplished woman be overshadowed by anyone or anything? Long before she was mother to Malia and Sasha, Michelle Obama knew that helping young people realize their potential was principal to her mission in life. Very early in her law career, Michelle realized she wanted to recommit herself to the city and people of Chicago. She left Chicago’s Sidley Austin and began working in planning at development at City Hall. She went on to be the founding Executive Director of Chicago’s branch of Public Allies. This role was an early clue of what was to become one of Michelle’s missions—connecting young people with their passions so they would realize their potential

Rosa Parks wasn’t actually seated in the front of the bus on that December day in 1955. She was seated in the middle, where both whites and blacks were allowed to sit. But the bus was full and a white passenger was standing, so the driver asked Rosa and a few other African Americans to stand so the white man would have a seat. By law, they were required to clear an entire row in the middle section if a white person wanted to sit down. The three other people in Rosa’s row stood. Rosa did not, and she was arrested. She has since said of that day that she decided “to let it be known that I did not want to be treated in that manner, and people had endured it far too long.”

to positively influence the world around them. That somewhere along the way she fell in love with a passionate and talented young lawyer who was committed to community organizing came as no surprise, though when they landed in the White House with their two young daughters, Barack and Michelle Obama began an altogether different chapter of their lives together: as the first African American First Family.

Rosa was born in 1913 in Tuskegee, Alabama. Her mother, Leona, was a teacher and her father, James, was a carpenter. Rosa spent much of her childhood living with Leona’s parents in Pine Level, Alabama. She attended school up to and including teacher’s college. When her grandmother fell ill, Rosa quit college to care for her. Rosa married Raymond Parks and the couple became active in the civil rights movement in Montgomery. Before she refused to give up her seat on the bus, she had worked on cases for the NAACP involving lynchings, rape, and murder. None sparked the flame like her singular moment of nonviolent protest.

Michelle continued her work in support of children and communities with her initiatives as First Lady. Healthy eating and exercise, education, and youth empowerment were all priorities during her time at the White House, though she also found an entirely new calling. Through meeting with members of the military, Michelle realized the depth and breadth of struggles that active and retired members of the military and their families face, and she put those issues at the forefront of her work. In addition to raising two accomplished young women, Michelle has spent her career thinking about and working towards ways to help other people become their best selves. All the while, Michelle Obama herself has been Becoming a cultural icon as her popularity and best-selling memoir can attest.

News of Rosa’s arrest spread, and members of various civil rights organizations in Montgomery decided the moment

Black Icons in Herstory features bold, colorfully illustrated portraits of 50 of the most admired women in the fields of music, film, literature, politics, human rights, and more. This second book in our Icons series focuses exclusively on remarkable Black women, celebrating their achievements, legacy, and continued inspiration. From Harriet Tubman to Kamala Harris; from Nina Simone to Beyoncé; from Michelle Obama to Amanda Gorman; this curated list of role models is significant. Each striking portrait illustrated by Monica Ahanonu is accompanied by a biography of ach woman, highlighting her contributions to our culture and her lasting influence on herstory.

ARETHA FRANKLIN When Otis Redding first heard Aretha Franklin’s version of his song “Respect,” he turned to his producer and said, “I just lost my song.” Aretha didn’t write all her songs but the way she sang them was a different form of creation, a different kind of ownership. Gospel music permeated Aretha’s childhood, and her father’s empowering sermons on God’s love and political activism were always with her. C.L. was a renown Baptist preacher, and her mother, Barbara, was a gospel singer and pianist. Aretha sang her first solo in C.L.’s church in Detroit when she was just ten years old, and when she was old enough, she joined C.L. on his gospel tours around the country. When she was eighteen, she asked permission to try to cross over to pop music, and her father, recognizing her talent, supported her. Aretha’s biggest hits were calls to action. While she claims not to have written them as such, she was proud when they became anthems. Aretha was surrounded by the luminaries of the civil rights movement in her youth, and the women’s liberation movement coincided with her rise to fame. She reconstructed Otis Redding’s song so that it was a woman, not a man, demanding respect. She and her sisters rearranged the song, spelling out R-E-S-P-E-C-T, and powering the beat forward with sock it to me, sock it me, sock it to me. These were women who were raised by C.L. Franklin; they knew how to preach.

CHRONICLE CHROMA

Her origin story is the stuff that superheroes are made of—her parents weren’t there but she had a strict and loving grandmother; she was abused and ignored, but when she veered off course a father figure stepped in with love and a firm hand to get her back on the right path. By the time she was a teenager, she had begun her climb to greatness. She won prizes for dramatic recitation and public speaking in high school. She won a beauty pageant and was offered a radio job when she was seventeen. She won a full scholarship to Tennessee State University, where she majored in speech communications and performing arts. When her broadcast career began to show promise, she left college to work as a reporter and news anchor. When she was demoted to a morning talk show because the executives felt she was “too emotional” when she reported the news, Oprah found she was right where she belonged—talking with people, not to them. In short order, her morning show was

In February 1968, MLK Jr. presented Aretha with the Drum Beat Award of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, honoring her contributions to the civil rights movement. Just two months later, King was assassinated and Aretha sang “Take My Hand, Precious Lord” at his funeral. Whether it was her faith, her close-knit family, or her music, Aretha was able to weather many storms in her life. When she died in 2018, she was remembered as much for her voice as for what she embodied. Aretha Franklin was the first woman inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1987. President Obama said of Aretha and her music, “Nobody embodies more fully the connection between the African American spiritual, the blues, R and B, rock and roll—the way that hardship and sorrow were transformed into something full of beauty and vitality and hope.”

Oprah Winfrey likes to be inspired. She likes to connect with people. Though she has said that, at this stage in her life, she will “only talk to who I want to talk to,” there is no doubt that Oprah is going to keep talking as long as people will listen. And it seems people are going to keep listening. Probably because, unlike many who have the gift of gab, there is real substance to what Oprah has to say. Early on in her career, she decided that she wanted her television show to be a force for good. She shifted the focus of the The Oprah Winfrey Show from the kind of sensational stories that were common on daytime talk shows at the time to ones rooted in inspiring messages and positive change.

Aretha’s early records with Columbia stand the test of time, but producers hadn’t quite figured out how to showcase her voice. As her father said when he introduced her on her bestselling gospel album, Amazing Grace, “Aretha can sing anything.” It was Jerry Wexler at Atlantic who finally figured out what to do with her instrument—he let Aretha sing what she wanted to sing. Together they recorded some of her best known songs—“Think,” “Chain of Fools,” “Do Right Woman, Do Right Man.” The Queen of Soul was on her way.

A CONCEPT OF LIVING THAT WILL REDEFINE WHAT WE PLACE IMPORTANCE ON— AND LEAVE US HAPPIER BECAUSE OF IT.

“ Syfret’s creative use of nihilism to dismiss the ‘meaningful’ values and activities of normal society is engaging and potentially useful to anyone who feels trapped by those standards and willing to rethink their own priorities.” —Dr. Michael Bennett and Sarah Bennett, authors of F*ck Feelings

“ An honest, urgent, but also totally chill and non-dreadful call to find the mirthful in the meaningless. Syfret makes me proud to call myself a sunny nihilist.” —Amanda Montell, author of Wordslut: A Feminist Guide to Taking Back the English Language and Cultish: The Language of Fanaticism

THE SUNNY NIHILIST A Declaration of the Pleasure of Pointlessness By Wendy Syfret

Disillusioned with the search for meaning? If career success, a fulfilling life, and a beautiful Instagram account are meant to make us feel safe and happy, why does this generation remain defined by stress, burnout, and obsessive individuality? Awardwinning writer Wendy Syfret examines how meaning pervades our modern experience of work, love, religion, and wider society, and asks whether a touch of upbeat nihilism could actually lighten our loads. Dismantling our self-care obsession and our self-centered way of living, The Sunny Nihilist encourages us to consider an alternative—that once we free ourselves from the burden of meaning, we can simply enjoy our lives and build more pleasant societies for each other.

THE END OF THE GOLDEN GATE

Stop Censoring Who You Are and Discover What You Really Want • By Alexis Rockley

Writers on Loving and (Sometimes) Leaving San Francisco • Introduction by Gary Kamiya

A refreshingly witty guide that uses hard science to prove why one-sizefits-all success formulas won’t keep us happy—and shows us how to find what will.

This nationally acclaimed, beautifully written collection of essays takes on every San Francisco resident’s eternal conflict: Should I stay or should I go? The End of the Golden Gate will speak to anyone wishing to relive the magic of San Francisco, or experiencing the sadness of leaving the City by the Bay—and ultimately, to anyone who needs a reminder of why we stay.

AN ODE TO STARING OUT THE WINDOW! Every morning, one boy watches . . . for two bright headlights, three big steps up, four rusty cars, and infinite wonders to see along the way!

ONE BOY WATCHING By Grant Snider

Climb aboard Bus Number Four as it travels along country roads and city streets, past train tracks and farm fields. Through the window countless details rush by, just waiting to be noticed. What will you see today? In this lyrical tribute to long rides and curious minds, author Grant Snider celebrates the extraordinary found within the ordinary, the fascinating hiding within the familiar, and the world of discovery awaiting all those who watch and wonder. GRANT SNIDER is an orthodontist by day, finding hidden hours to write, draw, and create cartoons and picture books, including What Color Is Night? and What Sound Is Morning? For 11 years, he rode Bus Number Four to school in Mulvane, Kansas. He lives in Wichita, Kansas, with his family.

YOU ARE HERE By Zach Manbeck

You are here, and from here, there are so many places you can go! But how will you know how to get there? In this warm and wise debut, Zach Manbeck offers a poetic road map to finding their way in the world, while at the same time reminding us that right now, we are here—exactly where we are meant to be. Both sweet and uplifting, this is a perfect book for a new baby, a new graduate, or anyone who could use a reminder that “not all those who wander are lost.” ZACH MANBECK is a recent graduate of the University of the Arts in Philadelphia. This debut picture book was inspired by the uncertainty he felt as he set off to find his path after graduation. He hopes it will inspire readers to celebrate their individuality and to believe that each of them will find their own path in their own way. Zach lives in Pennsylvania.

Does a scarecrow have a butt? Yep, you stuff it with a straw one. And does a crayon have a butt? Nope, but it can surely draw one.

DOES A BULLDOZER HAVE A BUTT? By Derick Wilder • Illustrated by K-Fai Steele

Over the course of a long walk across a city, one curious kid needs to know: “Does it have a butt?” Everything from sheep to ghosts to dinosaurs is subjected to this all-important question, and Dad is a never-ending source of answers.

DERICK WILDER is the founder of Reading Giraffe, a literacy initiative with the goal of creating lifelong readers. He lives in Fort Mill, South Carolina. K-FAI STEELE is an author-illustrator of books for young readers. She lives in Lausanne, Switzerland.

LEARN ABOUT THE JEWISH PRACTICE OF GOOD DEEDS IN THIS HEARTWARMING PICTURE BOOK

CAN SOPHIE CHANGE THE WORLD? By Nancy Elizabeth Wallace • Illustrated by Aura Lewis

It’s Grandpop’s birthday, and all he wants is one little thing: for Sophie to change the world. He wants Sophie to do a mitzvah— something kind for others. But what exactly does that mean? As Sophie shares, teaches, helps her friends, takes care of birds, and picks up litter, she wonders which of these acts, if any, might change the world. By performing this sequence of poignant mitzvahs with an open heart, unending empathy, and a big imagination, Sophie’s about to discover that what sounds like an impossible task just might be the best way to live life. In this exploration of an essential part of Jewish traditional teaching, one girl’s efforts to grant her grandfather’s wish shows that the smallest acts of kindness are what truly change the world. NANCY ELIZABETH WALLACE is the creator of more than 20 books for children. She lives in Connecticut. AURA LEWIS is the author-illustrator of such titles as The Illustrated Feminist and We the People. She lives in New York.

ELEFANTASTIC! A Story of Magic in 5 Acts: Light Verse on a Heavy Subject By Jane Yolen • Illustrated by Brett Helquist

Discover the unlikely—and entirely unforgettable—friendship between Flora, an elephant calf stolen from her African home, and David, the circus impresario and magician who adopts, trains, and ultimately liberates her in this tale freely inspired by actual events. With a minimum of language—only 22 words in all—but a maximum of inventive ele-fantabulous wordplay, Jane Yolen deftly reimagines this initially tentative but ultimately unconditional relationship between a man and an elephant. Capturing all the excitement, mystery, and color of a vintage circus poster, Brett Helquist’s illustrations lovingly illuminate the tale and convey the subtle range of emotions of a remarkable and enduring ele-friendship.

JANE YOLEN, hailed as the Hans Christian Andersen of America, has written more than 400 books, won numerous awards, and received six honorary doctorates in literature. Her works include such classics as The Devil’s Arithmetic, How Do Dinosaurs Say Good Night?, the Caldecott Medal–winner Owl Moon, and A Bear Sat on My Porch Today. Jane lives in Hatfield, Massachusetts. BRETT HELQUIST is the New York Times bestselling illustrator of many books, including Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events, Chasing Vermeer, and Guitar Genius. He is also the author-illustrator of Grumpy Goat, Bedtime for Bear, and Roger, the Jolly Pirate. A native of Utah, Brett now lives in Brooklyn, New York.

COURAGE HATS By Kate Hoefler • Illustrated by Jessixa Bagley

Courage is something that comes from your heart. But if you can’t find it there, you can wear it on your head at first. Mae is a girl. Bear is a bear. But over the course of one lifechanging, slightly nerve-racking train ride, they find out that this might be the only thing they don’t have in common. Kate Hoefler’s signature lyricism and Jessixa Bagley’s sweetly wry art combine for a gently whimsical, people (and bear) pleaser of a story about the fear of being different, the ways we overcome this fear, and the fact that often what’s different is a lot more familiar than we might think. With courage, determination, and a dash of friendship, Mae and Bear discover all the humor, warmth, and beauty found in togetherness and in the unknown.

KATE HOEFLER is the author of Rabbit and the Motorbike and Great Big Things. She lives in Ohio. JESSIXA BAGLEY’s books have won the SCBWI Golden Kite Award, multiple Junior Library Guild selections, and an Ezra Jack Keats New Writer Honor, among many other awards. She lives in Seattle, Washington.

With poignant, poetic prose and striking, color-drenched illustrations, this empowering picture book centers the inherent worthiness and radiance of Black girls. A love letter to and for Black girls everywhere, Black Girl Rising sweeps young readers of all backgrounds into a lyrical exploration of what it means to be Black, female, and divine.

A HEARTWARMING TALE OF FINDING HOME FROM THE AUTHOR OF THE LANGUAGE OF SPELLS, WINNER OF THE CALIFORNIA BOOK AWARD

“ Garret Weyr’s ability to see the world through the eyes of a little street cat is astounding; she intuitively understands the plight of feral animals, and makes their fears, hopes, and slow process to find the courage to trust and love a vividly poignant, alive, and real journey that any human could readily identify with.” —Barbara McClintock, acclaimed author of Adèle & Simon

HARVEY AND THE COLLECTION OF IMPOSSIBLE THINGS By Garret Weyr • Illustrated by Minnie Phan

From the California Book Award–winning author of The Language of Spells comes a charming illustrated middle grade novel about one city cat’s search for shelter, acceptance, and courage. For stray cats, life on the streets can be unforgiving. When every day is filled with territorial animals, fast-moving traffic, and aggressive boys with sticks, it takes more than a little courage to get by. Harvey is searching for a home of his own— one that’s safe and dry, with a view of the sky. But when the unexpected kindness of one woman saves him from the harsh city elements, he is forced to rethink what makes a home and who, if anyone, he can depend on. With the help of Chester the dog and three talkative sparrows, Harvey learns that trusting and helping others might be the bravest things you can do.

GARRET WEYR is the author of six novels, some of which have been banned, translated into a multitude of languages, and included in college curricula. She lives in Venice, California, with lots of books. MINNIE PHAN is an illustrator based in Oakland, California.

INTRODUCING THE DEFINITIVE GUIDE TO WILDLIFE IN THE UNITED STATES

FLOWING DOWNSTREAM

SHELTER

WATERFRONT DEVELOPMENT

The Appalachians are one of the wettest places in the eastern United States. Rain and melting snow rush downhill in swift mountain streams, eventually flowing together into larger rivers. As these streams settle onto flat land, they began to widen and slow their pace, inviting wildlife of all kinds.

By nesting close to water, birds can easily gather fish, worms, and aquatic insects to bring back to their chicks.

FORAGING

TOUCHY FINGERS

Mallards hide their nests among reeds and grasses.

Great blue herons weave a saucer-shaped nest out of reeds, grass, and twigs.

When raccoons “wash” their food before they eat, they’re not cleaning up: they’re learning more about their meal. Raccoons have a strong sense of touch in their fingers, and wetting their hands makes the nerves even more sensitive, helping them gather more information.

ATHLETICS

A WARM-UP STRETCH Belted kingfishers dig burrows in sandy riverbanks.

Red-eared sliders stretch out to get as much warmth from the sun as they can while out of the water.

TOOLKIT

saffron shiners

FEELING FISHY The wavy-rayed lampmussel relies on predatory fish to spread its larvae, so it puts out a lure that looks like a tasty smaller fish.

COMMUNITY

PUTTING OUT THE WELCOME MAT To attract a mate, the male river chub uses his mouth to move up to 10,000 pebbles, building a nest that can measure 3 feet long. Other fish use his nest to lay their own eggs, which the river chub welcomes. The more eggs there are, the more likely his will remain safe from predators.

TOOLKIT

COMMUNITY

THE PICKEREL’S POISON

A QUICK GATHERING

The pickerel frog is the only poisonous frog in the United States: secretions in its skin make it toxic to eat.

Most mayflies live up to two years underwater as larvae, but only one day as adults. They take flight at the same time, gathering in huge groups to mate and lay their eggs.

HUNTING

STAKEOUT The common snapping turtle hides along river bottoms, waiting to ambush prey as it passes by.

UNIFORM

SCUBA SUIT Like all salamanders, the hellbender salamander breathes through its skin. Extra folds of skin along its body provide more surface area, allowing it to get more oxygen.

WILDERNESS EXPERTS

THE STREAMLINED SWIMMER With its long, thin body and water-resistant fur, the North American river otter is a perfectly designed fisherman. Its ears and nostrils close as it slices through water at seven miles per hour, and it can hold its breath for eight minutes!

LAND OF THE SAGUARO

lesser long-nosed bat

Far from being a barren wasteland, the Sonoran Desert is a rich and diverse ecosystem that is home to more than 2,000 species of flowering plants. Towering above this desert garden is the saguaro, the tallest cactus in the United States and a source of life for many Sonoran creatures.

FORAGING

A PRICKLY GETAWAY Bobcats are agile climbers and can scale saguaros to get away from danger.

HUNTING

INSECT ASSASSIN The smallest owl in the world, the elf owl hunts for crickets, beetles, and spiders.

Do you know which animal evades rattlesnakes by dancing?

ATHLETICS

SHELTER

HANDSTAND

WAITING IT OUT

To warn off predators, the spotted skunk stands on its hands and lifts its tail in the air.

Or that some squirrels can glide on the air for hundreds of feet?

SCORPION HUNTER The grasshopper mouse is able to hunt for scorpions because it has evolved to be resistant to the toxins in their sting. Grasshopper mice “howl” to defend their territory.

TOOLKIT

The round-tailed ground squirrel stays dormant in its burrow during the hottest parts of the year.

HUNTING

Or that alligators can create their own year-round pools?

DANGEROUS PRODUCE The javelina’s tusks allows them to tear through the tough skin of prickly pears.

FORAGING

LATE-NIGHT SNACKING

TOOLKIT

Usually active during the day, gila monsters become more nocturnal during the hottest part of the summer, when they’ll emerge at night to feast on eggs and small birds.

EAR CONDITIONING The antelope jackrabbit’s long ears help it cool off by releasing excess heat.

LOWRIDERS TO THE RESCUE

—Christina Soontornvat, Newbery Honor–winning author of All Thirteen: The Incredible Cave Rescue of the Thai Boys’ Soccer Team

By Cathy Camper • Illustrated by Raúl the Third

Nothing is normal in the little town where the Lowriders live. To start, Flappy can’t see a thing! He keeps mistaking fire hydrants for sailors and laundry for love interests. Even more worrying, the Upscale Business Association is tearing down local shops in favor of a brand-new development. Most disconcerting of all, the monarchs who usually migrate through town at this time of year are nowhere to be found. When a beautiful young monarch named Sokar bikes into town with a broken wing, she brings scary news: A dangerous wildfire is burning fast and hot, leaving the monarchs stranded. Can the Lowriders save their town? Humor, Spanish, and lowriders come together in this rollicking celebration of making new friends, fighting climate change, and standing up for what’s right. ¡Vámonos!

PRAISE FOR THE OTHER HALF OF HAPPY:

By Rebecca Balcárcel

A Pura Belpré Author Honor book

Luz Véliz is a soccer star—or rather, she was a soccer star. With her serious knee injury, it’s unlikely she’ll be back on the field anytime soon. But without soccer, who is she? When Luz discovers a knack for coding, it feels like a lifeline. If she can just ace the May Showcase, she’ll skip a level in her coding courses, impress intriguing, brilliant Trevor, and have her parents cheering her on from the sidelines, just the way she likes it. But something—someone—is about to enter the Vélizes’ lives. From Pura Belpré Honor–winning author Rebecca Balcárcel, this beautiful coming-of-age story celebrates identity, language, heritage, the enduring connection of family, and the determination to follow one’s own inner light.

AN IMMERSIVE, PAGE-TURNING DEBUT NOVEL FOR LOVERS OF MIDDLE GRADE ADVENTURE AND FANTASY

“ Don’t we all want to believe we are forces for good and we carry within us some unknown magic power? Fast-paced and richly imagined, The Callers follows young Quin, the black sheep of a powerful family, as he struggles to absorb uncomfortable truths about who has the right to magic, comfort, resources, and safety. Beautifully told and engaging and just thrilling. What a great story.” —Garret Weyr, Printz Honor–winning author of The Language of Spells

“ Lush and dazzling, this enchanting fantasy whisks you away to an inventive world, full of intrigue and adventure. The Callers is captivating to the very end.” —Rhiannon Williams, Ampersand Prize–winning author of the Narroway Trilogy

THE CALLERS By Kiah Thomas

In the world of Elipsom, the ability to Call—or summon objects— is a coveted skill, revered as a powerful tool and an essential way to sustain life. Despite an elite family history, a best friend primed to join the Council of Callers, and his mother’s steely insistence that he learn to Call, Quin doesn’t have the gift. But everything changes in a moment of frustration when he attempts to summon an object—and makes something disappear instead. What’s more, Quin soon discovers that the objects Callers bring forth aren’t conjured at all, but are whisked away from another world where people have had their lives slowly stolen from them for years. When he meets Allie, a girl who’s determined to stop this unfair practice, Quin must decide whether he should remain loyal to his family or betray them—and save the world. KIAH THOMAS rediscovered her love of kids’ literature when she had children of her own and is passionate about stories that families can enjoy together. She lives in New South Wales, Australia.

SEEING GENDER An Illustrated Guide to Identity and Expression By Iris Gottlieb • Foreword by Kacen Callender

Gender is an intensely personal—and universal—facet of humanity. In this vibrant book, queer author and artist Iris Gottlieb visually explores gender in all its complexities, answering questions and providing guidance while also mining history and pop culture for the stories and people who have shaped the conversation on gender. This deeply researched and brilliantly rendered book demystifies this fluid topic at a critical time. For LGBTQIA+ people, Seeing Gender provides a space for selfexploration, offering comfort, advice, and reassurance throughout the sometimes confusing process of navigating one’s identity. For allies, the book is an essential tool for understanding and thoughtfully participating in this necessary cultural conversation. Seeing Gender is a must-read for anyone passionate about changing the way we see and talk about gender and sexuality in the 21st century.

KACEN CALLENDER is a National Book Award– winning and Stonewall Award–winning author. Kacen currently resides in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

our sustainability mission

Eco Team We have a dedicated team reviewing all Petit Collage products, with a specific goal: to make them more sustainable and reduce their negative impact on our planet.

Safety The safety of our products is our highest priority. Every Petit Collage product is thoroughly risk assessed and third party tested. You can rest assured that our products are designed with your child’s safety at the forefront.

Our Factories We care how and where our products are made and we ensure all our suppliers have a valid and in-date full ethical audit report.

Responsibly Sourced We prioritize the use of responsibly sourced materials, such as recycled card, FSC wood and FSC paper, GOTS certified organic cotton, vegetable or soy inks and water-based paints.

Revised Packaging Transit We have made it a priority to reduce overall packaging size and material use, thus improving shipping efficiency. Plus, continually improving timeline management ensures we rarely need to air freight Petit Collage products around the world.

We have significantly reduced single use and disposable plastic waste from our product packaging and our transit packaging. Where we’re finding plastic difficult to remove, we’re working to provide recycled and recyclable options that have less of an ecological impact. Ultimately, we aim to remove plastic entirely.
