little people, big dreams giveaway

In celebration of Women’s History Month, we’re partnering with The Land of Nod to give away a set of the following Little People, Big Dreams books: Amelia Earhart, Maya Angelou, Frida Kahlo and Coco Chanel.

This giveaway is open to US residents only and it ends on Thursday, March 23, at 11:59 PDT.  Head over to this post on Instagram to enter.



Who can you play a trick on if not a friend?  A good friend, of course.  The cunning humor, copious amounts of wit, furtive glances and ironic revenge in Mac Barnett and Jon Klassen’s latest collaboration TRIANGLE will make readers laugh even the tenth time around.  Now excuse us as we crack open this book again and watch some scheming shapes sidle across its pages.

Also, we made some bookmarks inspired by our newest favorite shape.


little red riding hood

The classic story of Little Red Riding Hood, reimagined with brilliant paper cut engineering and a modern, crisp palette of red, black and white.  As its pages are turned, the paper cut scenes commingle with each other, creating depth in their visual storytelling.  A magical version of this fairy tale that will enchant its readers.

This version of Little Red Riding Hood by the Grimm Brothers was created by Clémentine Sourdais and published by Little Gestalten.  Check this Instagram post for a video of how the book works.


noisy night

There's something to be said to noisy neighbors who keep us up at night — "Go to sleep!"  For those who are eternally irked and baffled by all that racket on the floor above them and what it could be, Mac Barnett and Brian Biggs' new book Noisy Night offers comical, clamorous possibilities.  The consensus after reading this one—definitely not a sleeper. ;)


before & after

The latest bit of genius from Jean Jullien: a board book of juxtaposed ‘before’ and ‘after’ images, playful as always, imbued with the intuitive humor and wit he's known for.  

Before & After was written and illustrated by Jean Jullien and published by Phaidon.
