How to Be a Family: The Year I Dragged My Kids Around the World to Find a New Way to Be Together

Dan Kois

$28.00 $25.20

A brilliant, hilarious travelogue. Will make you want to pack up and move to New Zealand, stat.

The Grammarians

Cathleen Schine

$27.00 $24.30

Identical twins Laurel and Daphne grow up, grow together, and grow apart in a world of words (and, appropriately, in NYC). Perfect for the language-lover in your life.

Every Heart a Doorway

Seanan McGuire

$17.98 $16.54

What happens when the children who fall through doors to other worlds make it back to reality? In short: otherworldly PTSD. The novellas in the Wayward Children series are perfectly bite-sized fairy tales with a healthy dose of the macabre.

This Is How You Lose the Time War

Max Gladstone and Amal El-Mohtar

$19.98 $18.38

In a society of warring time-hoppers, enemies Red and Blue pen lengthy letters and tuck them into the nooks and crannies of their battlefields: in feathers, rivers, flames. What begins as a challenge between fighters evolves, through El-Mohtar and Gladstone's beautiful prose, into a tender struggle to be together beyond the parameters of time and space.

The Dearly Beloved

Cara Wall

$26.99 $24.29

Wall has created some of the most believable, best-drawn characters I have ever read about. Their backgrounds may be disparate, but they come together--and stick together--because of love, ideology, and family.

Furious Hours: Murder, Fraud, and the Last Trial of Harper Lee

Casey Cep

$26.95 $24.26

A masterpiece of Southern literature in the form of a true-crime story that takes cues from the canon but carves out its own space. Within that space, Cep tells the story of an original series of crimes, the ones that followed, and the mesmerized crowd (featuring a certain American literary figure) that watched it all unfold.

How Do You Dance?

Thyra Heder

$16.98 $15.62

This book is pure celebration--of movement, family, friendship, being yourself, and dancing like no one's watching. In her joyous watercolor illustrations, Thyra Heder brings the freedom of dance to the page with effortless style.

Pokko and the Drum

Matthew Forsythe

$17.99 $16.55

Hilarious, beautiful, and bizarre (think Jon Klassen and Mac Barnett at their best), this book is a winner in every way. Here's hoping POKKO makes it all the way to classic status--it's that good.

Red, White & Royal Blue

Casey McQuiston

$16.98 $15.62

Smart and sexy, this hopeful book will make you want to fall in love.

Hi, Jack!

Mac Barnett and Greg Pizzoli

$9.99 $9.19

Jack is my favorite new bad guy. He's deliciously bad, with big eyes that will melt your heart on one page...but it's all a trick, because on the next page, his eyes narrow, and he's drawing on the wall! I hope you fall in love with this little monster.
