Congratulations to Barbara Stuber!

Congratulations to Barbara Stuber! BarbStuberBGirlReverseCover‘s GIRL IN REVERSE was just released by Margaret K. McElderry Books.

 

When Lily was three, her mother put her up for adoption, then disappeared without a trace. Or so Lily was told. Lily grew up in her new family and tried to forget her past. But with the Korean War raging and fear of “commies” everywhere, Lily’s Asian heritage makes her a target. She is sick of the racism she faces, a fact her adoptive parents won’t take seriously. For Lily, war is everywhere—the dinner table, the halls at school, and especially within her own skin.

New York Times review for MUSTACHE BABY by Bridget Heos! Congratulations!

Here’s the New York Times Sunday book review of MUSTACHE BABY, a new picture book by Heartlander Bridget Heos:

MUSTACHE BABY
By Bridget Heos.
Illustrated by Joy Ang.
40 pp. Clarion Books/Houghton Mifflin ­Harcourt. $16.99. (Picture book; ages 4 to 8)
You never know what you’ll get in the delivery room, and something isn’t quite right with this new baby. Mustachioed! “You’ll have to wait and see whether it is a good-guy mustache or a bad-guy mustache,” the nurse coolly informs his baffled family. Heos’s offbeat tale muses on the possibilities, playing off parental hopes and panicky nightmares. He could be a cowboy who cares for injured animals and mends broken fences. He could be a Spanish painter or a sword fighter. It’s hard to know what kind of person a child will grow up to be, especially as his mustache lengthens and curls unexpectedly. What if he becomes a cat burglar or a cereal criminal? Stay tuned.
