Barbara Lehman
Lehman received a 2005 Caldecott Honor for The Red Book, a wordless story in which a girl in a snow-covered city and a boy on a sunny island are brought together through a pair of magic books. Now Lehman has created a sequel, Red Again, in which two new children find the books and the magic unfolds again. We spoke with Lehman about wordless books and how children react to her open-ended stories.

Q: Had you been thinking about a second book?

A: The idea was always there. I didn’t really think of it as a sequel—there were just questions left open at the end of the last book. Who is the boy? Where does he go? What happens next? I was sitting in a coffee shop, waiting for somebody, and I thought: I can go back to the start of the first book! Once I thought that, a lot of things fell into place. more

FEATURED REVIEWS
While You Are Sleeping
Mariana Ruiz Johnson. Chronicle, $16.99 (36p) ISBN 978-1-4521-6599-8

Argentinian illustrator Johnson’s wordless story starts with a view through a window. Inside, a mother reads to her son, then tiptoes away after he falls asleep. Now the view pulls back: the boy’s parents share wine downstairs, a girl cycles by, and a jaguar and a deer play music together on a nearby rooftop. The view again widens to reveal more buildings—the city night is alive with activity. more
Bub
Elizabeth Rose Stanton. S&S/Wiseman, $17.99 (40p) ISBN 978-1-4814-8757-3

Bob—a sea green, single-fanged monster in overalls—is stuck with an unwanted nickname. He “didn’t close the top of his O” on the first day of school, and now everybody calls him Bub. Bob/Bub doesn’t run away, exactly, but he begins to drift around his noisy home invisibly, like a ghost. more
Grilled Cheese and Dragons
Nancy Krulik, illus. by Ben Balistreri. Penguin Workshop, $6.99 trade paper (144p) ISBN 978-0-515-15831-1

Born Serena, the rowdy princess of Empiria prefers a name that better suits her temperament: Princess Pulverizer. In this very funny series kickoff, Krulik tackles sexist double standards and plays with fantasy tropes as the princess attempts to become one of her father’s Knights of the Skround Table (“perfectly square, but with carefully rounded corners. Skround”). more
Betty Before X
Ilyasah Shabazz, with Renée Watson. Farrar, Straus and Giroux, $16.99 (256p) ISBN 978-0-374-30610-6

The daughter of Betty Shabazz and Malcolm X, Shabazz joins with Watson to tell an absorbing fictionalized account of her mother’s formative years. History comes alive in this illuminating portrayal of the early life of this civil rights activist. more
Love and Other Train Wrecks
Leah Konen. HarperCollins/Tegen, $17.99 (368p) ISBN 978-0-06-240250-9

Seventeen-year-old Ammy West meets Noah Adler, a freshman at Hunter College, on an Amtrak train headed to Hudson, N.Y. Both need to get to the town by a certain time, so when the train grinds to a halt during a snowstorm, they decide to try their luck with a bus—but things don't go as planned. Konen spins a charming tale of two people who are meant to be, despite terrible first impressions. more

PICTURE OF THE DAY

Kim Wright's Southern Stunner
Kim Wright was awarded the Willie Morris Award for Southern Fiction for her novel 'Last Ride to Graceland' (Gallery) on October 23 at a ceremony held at the New York Yacht Club. It was the 10th anniversary of the award, which recognizes a writer whose work is set in the South, exemplifies the tenets of Southern literature—quality of prose, originality, and authenticity of setting and characters—and reflects, in the words of Willie Morris, "hope for belonging, for belief in a people’s better nature, for steadfastness against all that is hollow or crass or rootless or destructive." Pictured here (from l. to r.): Jill Hendrix, owner of Fiction Addiction; Wright; the co-founders of the award, Dave Williams and novelist Reba White Williams; and executive director of SIBA Wanda Jewell.

FEATURED REVIEWS
Elmore
Holly Hobbie. Random House, $17.99 (40p) ISBN 978-1-5247-1863-3

“Friends Wanted” reads the sign that Elmore, a self-sufficient but solitary porcupine, posts in the woods. There are no takers—everyone is scared of his quills. When Elmore’s uncle insists that his quills are “beautiful” and define who he is, Elmore is inspired. more
My Friends Make Me Happy!
Jan Thomas. Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, $9.99 (48p) ISBN 978-0-544-96655-0

“Yay! Look who’s coming! My friends!” cheers Sheep on the title page of this high-energy addition to Thomas’s Giggle Gang series. After Donkey, Bear, and Duck show up, Sheep drops a question on them: “Can you guess what makes me happy?” Readers will probably infer the answer from the book’s title, but the other animals are stumped. more
The Pink Umbrella
Amélie Callot, trans. from the French by Tara Hinchberger, illus. by Geneviève Godbout. Tundra, $17.99 (80p) ISBN 978-1-101-91923-1

Understated text and gauzy pencil-and-pastel artwork transport readers to a seaside village where social life revolves around the Polka-Dot Apron, a café run by a young woman named Adele. “It’s where everyone meets,” writes French author Callot. Adele herself “is the village’s sun—lively, sweet and sparkling,” but her spirit plummets whenever the weather turns rainy. more
Write to Me: Letters from Japanese American Children to the Librarian They Left Behind
Cynthia Grady, illus. by Amiko Hirao. Charlesbridge, $16.99 (32p) ISBN 978-1-58089-688-7

Grady recounts the true story of San Diego children’s librarian Clara Breed, who corresponded with her young Japanese-American patrons while they were interned during WWII. Excerpts from the children’s letters appear as small signed postcards that overlay many of Hirao’s colored-pencil illustrations. “Books make the day shorter and happier for us,” one postcard declares; others offer upsetting glimpses into camp life. more
The Journey of Little Charlie
Christopher Paul Curtis. Scholastic Press, $16.99 (256p) ISBN 978-0-545-15666-0

Echoing themes found in Curtis’s Newbery Honor–winning Elijah of Buxton, this exceedingly tense novel set in 1858 provides a very different perspective on the business of catching runaway slaves. Eking out a living as South Carolina sharecroppers, the Bobo family knows hard luck. After 12-year-old Charlie’s father is killed in a freak accident, Charlie reluctantly agrees to pay off his father’s debt by accompanying a plantation overseer on a hunt for three runaways. more
