Bear and Chicken

By Jannie Ho

  • Hardback
  • £10.99

Humor, sincerity, and a surprise twist ending make Bear and Chicken fall into ranks with Mo Willems and Dev Petty, and the vegetable soup recipe at the end is sure to inspire young chefs to get busy in the kitchen.

When Bear finds a chicken frozen in the winter snow, he brings it home to try to defrost it. As Chicken thaws--um, awakens--he fears that Bear is actually prepping to eat him. Oh no! All signs are pointing to a fateful end for Chicken--being wrapped like a burrito, chopped basil and veggies sitting on the counter, the huge pot on the stove that's just the right size for a chicken to fit inside.

It's almost time for lunch, so Chicken makes a run for it! But in the end, Chicken learns that perhaps he too quickly jumped to conclusions. This funny and clever friendship tale teaches kids that things are not always as they seem, while learning a thing or two about making soup with a friend!

Courage for Beginners

Karen Harrington
Authors:
Karen Harrington

12-year-old Mysti Murphy wishes she was a character in a book. If her life was fictional, she'd magically know how to deal with the fact that her best friend, Anibal Gomez, no longer wants to talk to her during school hours. She'd be able to take care of her family when her dad has to spend time in the hospital. And she'd certainly be able to change the secret fact about her family: her mother is agoraphobic and never leaves the house.School used to be the only escape for Mysti, but now that Anibal is trying to make friends with the popular crowd, Mysti is left alone at 'Loser Island' - the cafeteria table with misfits. At first Mysti can't stand the other kids there: know-it-all Wayne Kovok and standoffish new girl Rama Khan. But as Anibal changes for the worse, Mysti realises being a 'secret friend' is no kind of friend at all - and Rama and Wayne might understand her better than she thought.Ultimately, Mysti begins to see that her mother is afraid of everything, but Mysti can be brave in little ways even if she's not a character in a book: by standing up to Anibal when he's bullying her, by walking to the grocery store on her own when her mother can't leave the house, or by visiting her father at the hospital. And bit by bit, Mysti realises she's not alone after all.

Ask the Passengers

A.S. King
Authors:
A.S. King

Astrid Jones copes with her small town's gossip and narrow-mindedness by sending love to the passengers in the airplanes flying overhead. Maybe they'll know what to do with it. Maybe it'll make them happy. Maybe they'll need it. Her mother doesn't want it, her father's always stoned, her perfect sister's too busy trying to fit in and the people in her small town would never allow her to love the person she really wants to - another girl named Dee. There's no one Astrid feels she can talk to about this deep secret or the profound questions that she's trying to answer but little does she know just how much sending her love - and asking the right questions - will affect the passengers' lives, and her own, for the better.In this unmistakably original portrayal of a girl struggling to break free of society's boxes and definitions, Printz Honor author A.S. King asks readers to question everything - and offers hope to those who will never stop seeking and sharing real love.

Cris Beam
Authors:

J spun. His stomach clenched hard, as though he'd been hit. It was just the neighbour lady, Mercedes. J couldn't muster a hello back, not now; he didn't care that she'd tell his mother he'd been rude. She should know better. Nobody calls me Jeni anymore. J always felt different. He was certain that eventually everyone would understand who he really was: a boy mistakenly born as a girl. Yet as he grew up, his body began to betray him; eventually J stopped praying to wake up a 'real boy' and started covering up his body, keeping himself invisible - from his family, from his friends...from the world. But after being deserted by the best friend he thought would always be by his side, J decides that he's done hiding - it's time to be who he really is. And this time he is determined not to give up, no matter the cost.
