Everything I Know About You  

by Barbara Dee

Dear Reader,

Like my award-winning 2017 middle grade novels, STAR-CROSSED and HALFWAY NORMAL, my newest, EVERYTHING I KNOW ABOUT YOU, treats a serious topic--tween eating disorders--in an entertaining, kid-friendly way. During the seventh grade trip to Washington, math nerd Tally suspects roommate Ava has an eating disorder.  Is Ava's secret hers to keep?

Elly Swartz (Smart Cookie) calls EVERYTHING, "A beautiful and meaningful book that will be loved by many and needed in school libraries."

“A poignant and hilarious slice of middle-grade life.” -- Kirkus

Happy reading!

Summer Supper

by Rubin Pfeffer

Dear Reader,

SUMMER SUPPER sees stars! “Vivid colors, a multiracial cast, and seamless alliteration make this book a wonderful read.”—*Kirkus. “…this farm-to-table picture book is a lively classroom read-aloud choice.”—*Booklist.

I’m fascinated by the way picture books magically merge story, information, illustration, and design into a reading experience. SUMMER SUPPER was an idea planted by rolling an alliteration in my head of “sun, soil, seed” and letting that grow into the full story of a joyful group whose hard work and tender care yield bountiful meals and reasons to be to be thankful. “ a vibrant celebration of gardening, nature’s bounty, family, cooperation—and the letter S.” I hope readers will eat this up and agree that it’s “a simple, satisfying—and ultimately sweet—offering.” —Publishers Weekly.
