I AM A

Ages 5–8 Picture Book Ten record-breaking animal bones are introduced through a series of superlatives (the largest bone, the heaviest bone, even the spikiest bone!), set up as a guessing game with visual and narrative clues. Readers examine the animal’s skeleton and guess to whom it belongs; the answer is then revealed via page-turn to a vibrant, full-color spread, accompanied by an explanation as to why that particular animal’s bones are so special. This humorous and informative introduction to the connection between animal bones (anatomy) and behavior is full of fun, relatable facts as well as touch-and-feel finishes that bring the bones to life!

Fall 2017

Key Selling Points A playful and unusual approach to a fascinating nonfiction topic for children, touching on two high-interest categories: bones and animals The superlative structure references books of world records, a bestselling category for the age group Features eye-catching screenprint-inspired art with specially treated touchable skeletons Books on bones and skeletons are perfect for Halloween promotions Fully researched and vetted by an expert

RETICULATED GIRAFFE I am the world’s tallest animal. My long neck lets me reach leaves at the very top of tall trees that other animals can’t. It also helps me keep an eye out for predators who want to eat me, like the lion. From 18 feet high, I can see far across the open plains of Africa. No lion is going to sneak up on me. And if they do come near, my legs are so long I can kick those lions before they get too close. Hi-yah!

Jean Gourounas is a French author-illustrator based in Saint-Etienne, France. He works as a graphic designer and has written and illustrated over 20 children’s books in France. This is his first book in English.

Ages 3–6 Picture book An ice-fishing penguin grows increasingly aggravated as his line fails to attract fish, but instead, attracts a cast of curiously chatty polar characters. Hilariously expressive animals and their repetitive questions dramatically accumulate until finally, in the climactic finale, the penguin hears something under the water, and everyone silences for the big reveal. A fast-paced and entertaining read-aloud that provides ample opportunity for character voices and multiple punch lines. Children will wager predictions throughout, and crack up at the clever surprise ending!

Fall 2017

Key Selling Points A hilariously paced story that reads like an animated short The repetitive Q&A text makes for an interactive read-aloud, and encourages readers to make predictions about what could possibly be preventing the fish from biting The eye-catching illustrations, deadpan humor, and shocking ending are comparable to the likes of John Klassen’s I Want My Hat Back The polar setting makes this perfect for winter promotions

Young readers will exercise skills of categorization and visual acuity in finding the “imposter,” and bask in the preposterous silliness.
