They All Saw a Cat
By Brendan Wenzel
September 2016

“A joyous exploration of perspective... A perfect picture book!” —Laura Vaccaro Seeger, Caldecott Honor winning illustrator of Green

“A beautiful book about both perception and the natural world.” —Lane Smith author/illustrator ofThere Is a Tribe of Kids

“Visual storytelling at its best.” — Christian Robinson, Caldecott Honor winning illustrator of Last Stop on Market Street

"In my 20 years as a librarian and a bookseller, I have rarely seen a picture book as clever and full of depth "—Cathy Berner, bookseller, Blue Willow Books, Houston, Texas.

Hundred Percent
By Karen Romano Young
August 2016

“A brilliant and irresistible book about the sharp pains and joys of real life. Karen Romano Young is a writer like no other. She always finds the truest, most interesting paths to the heart.”—Rebecca Stead, Newbery Award–winning author of When You Reach Me

“Karen Romano Young must be twelve. There’s no other way she can possibly know what she knows about sixth grade in all its weirdness and glory.  Seen and felt and conveyed with unbelievable freshness and acuity, Hundred Percent handily performs the almost-impossible feat of offering its readers a mirror to their lives without gloom or condescension.”—Annie Barrows, New York Times bestselling author of the Ivy & Bean series

“Karen Romano Young has an unerring feel for the shifting alliances and uncomfortable intrigues of sixth graders. The voices are unique and the dialogue sparkles. Your heart will crack open as the cast of characters tries on one personality after the other, hoping to find the one that fits.” —Ellen Wittlinger, Printz Honor–winning author of Hard Love
