“A shiveringly good tale for ghost story enthusiasts who like happy endings.”
“Readers will fall for this spooktacular tale!”
—The Children’s Book Review
Aah! Dude! It moved! I told you not to touch it!
Can the mysterious shuddering pumpkin the three kids found in the forest be alive? They’re going to find out when they lift it from its resting place and carry it home. But what happens if someone—or something—comes looking for it?
This evocative graphic novel is spooky yet ultimately gentle and charming. It presents a tale of unfounded fear of those who are different and the similarities we all share. Told in richly stylized full-color artwork from illustrator Meaghan Tosi whose previous work Kirkus Reviews praised as “delightful.”
“Chaos ensues when a young boy believes he’s uncovered a loophole that entitles him to thousands of doughnuts for pennies on the dollar…throughout the narrative, Thomas Tosi weaves in comic shenanigans”
“Reminded me of Frindle but steers in a more humorous direction”
-Bookworm for Kids
Why would anyone need six thousand doughnuts?
Big family…little house… Fifth-grader Abe Mitchell is fed up with sharing. All he wants is something to call his own. And he just might get it when he finds a loophole in the fine print of a doughnut shop coupon. Abe thinks it entitles him to a fresh-baked mountain of crullers, dunkers, and chocolate-frosteds. But cashing in means war with Marlene Paczki, the daughter of the doughnut shop owner and Abe’s new crush.

June the Prune is an imaginative adventure told in June’s own distinctive voice—full of contractions, slang, and idioms, with a glossary included at the back of the book.
It’s not easy being a young squirrel raised by a coward. At least, that’s how Blossom sees her father. He’s scared to leave their home. Not just the grounds of the country cemetery, Father never leaves the Sturdy Oak. He doesn’t even step one toe outside.
When Blossom runs away, she finds herself trapped inside the Christmas tree of the Jones family—where the decorations come to life.
Blossom finds new friends in a band of handmade “lower branch” ornaments that tries to help her find her way home.
But she’ll soon wonder if Father was right to fear the outside world when a coterie of “upper branch” ornaments plots to rob the squirrel of her luxurious fur to fashion a coat for their leader—the angelic tree topper, Christmas Darby.

In this “surprisingly moving piece about teen life” (HBO Coverage), talented high school artist David McNeil is desperate to prove himself to his runaway father by winning a state championship basketball jacket. Grueling tryouts, family conflict, and strained friendships are merely the underpainting for David’s greatest challenge as he suddenly finds himself in the role of friend and protector of Dribbles – a mentally challenged old janitor and the basketball team’s unofficial mascot.
With self-confident new girl at school, Mary, as his guiding spirit and artistic muse, David may just find there are more important measures of a man’s worth than trophies. This “beautifully written, heartwarming, and quite charming” (Republic Pictures Coverage) story is one you will want to experience again and again.
