My Cousin Momo

Submitted by Mr. Eric!
My Cousin Momo by Zachariah O’Hora. Momo is kinda odd. He’s a flying squirrel that is too shy to fly in front of people. He wears weird clothes (red sweaters with weird sweatbands?!) and doesn’t play games like all of the other squirrels do. He’s from the city, so he does things a little differently, but still... weird is weird. At first his cousins are totally excited to hang out with Momo (I mean, he’s a flying squirrel! How cool is that!?), but after a while they decide that he’s not cool at all. But maybe, juuuust maybe, Momo is a little cool, just a different kind of cool from the rest of us. My Cousin Momo is a story all about how even though a person may look or act differently from yourself, that isn’t necessarily a bad thing. They might just be doing their own thing, and that’s kinda the coolest thing a person can do. See this book listed in our catalog

The Land of Lines

Submitted by Mr. Eric!
The Land of Lines by Victor Hussenot. In the land of lines, anything is possible… There are red and blue lines everywhere, crisscrossing each other to form a forest of scruffy trees and pointy rocks. They twist around to form canyons and mountains, waterfalls and swamps, and even weird shapes that seem to sprout from someone’s imagination. Amidst this chaotic forest of blue and red lines are two individuals, seemingly lost. One is a boy drawn in blue, the other a girl in red. Once they find each other, they embark on an adventure that is both dangerous and exciting. This wordless picture book has such a unique art style that it’s almost difficult for the reader to take their eyes away. It consists entirely of three colors: blue, red, and another mysterious color that emerges about halfway through the story. The Land of Lines paints a world where anything is possible, and readers young and old alike are sure to find it charming. See this book listed in our catalog
