The Field Guide to the North American Teenager by Ben Philippe (Review)

Norris Kaplan is clever, cynical, and quite possibly too smart for his own good. A black French Canadian, he knows from watching American sitcoms that those three things don’t bode well when you are moving to Austin, Texas. Plunked into a new high school and sweating a ridiculous amount from the oppressive Texas heat, Norris finds himself cataloging everyone he meets… Read More The Field Guide to the North American Teenager by Ben Philippe (Review)

I Am Actually a Penguin by Sean Taylor and Kasia Matyjaszek (Review)

When a little girl is given a penguin suit, she decides that living as a penguin is much more fun than just dressing as one. Penguins don’t ride the bus like people do, they don’t talk like people do, and they certainly don’t eat fish sticks like people do. Her family tells her, “You’re not actually a penguin.” But she knows that she ACTUALLY is. A hilarious new picture book about using your imagination — but also knowing that sometimes your costume needs to be washed!… Read More I Am Actually a Penguin by Sean Taylor and Kasia Matyjaszek (Review)
