The Lights that Dance in the Night

Author: Yuval Zommer

Available: November 1, 2022

“A glowing tribute to a remarkable natural wonder.” -Kirkus Reviews

In the next picture book from the creator of the holiday hit The Tree That's Meant to Be, the northern lights bring wonder and joy to all the creatures who bask in their mysterious glow. In this wonderfully festive picture book, Yuval Zommer imagines the northern lights' fleeting journey from space to Earth and how they weave a special magic for the animals and people living in the frozen lands below. With its heartfelt themes of kinship, curiosity, and the wonders of nature, it's a perfectly cozy story for families to read together.

The Sour Grape 

Author: Jory John  Illustrator: Pete Oswald

Jory John and Pete Oswald serve up another heaping plate of laughs and lessons with this empowering, witty, and charming addition to their #1 New York Times best-selling series!

The Sour Grape holds grudges for every reason under the sun. Lime never returned a scarf they borrowed? Grudge! Orange never called back? Grudge! But when a friend holds a grudge against the Sour Grape without listening to an explanation, the Sour Grape realizes how unfair grudges can be. Could a bunch of forgiveness and compassion be enough to turn a sour grape sweet?
