In Unicorn Thinks He’s Pretty Great by Bob Shea, Goat feels confident until Unicorn starts coming to his school. He’s afraid he isn’t good enough anymore, but eventually he learns that he is special, too, in this hilarious new picture book.


When Stravinsky Met Nijinsky : Two Artists, Their Ballet, And One Extraordinary Riot by Lauren Stringer is a gorgeous picture book depicting the inspiration and creation of The Rite Of Spring and its initial reception.


Doll Bones by Holly Black is a great story of changing friendships, stories, adventures, and a ghost.

Odd Duck by Cecil Castellucci and illustrated by Sara Varon is a beautiful new graphic novel about friendship and accepting yourself (and your friends) as they are. Check it and all of our new books for July out!



About Katy

Some of the books I've recently come to love include Signal To Noise by Silvia Moreno-Garcia, The Just City by Jo Walton, Goodbye Stranger by Rebecca Stead, and Bug In A Vacuum by Melanie Watt. I'm a firm believer in the power of the Oxford comma.
