All’s Faire In Middle School GN – Dial Books brings back Victoria Jamieson for another heartwarming graphic novel about the trials and triumphs of adolescence. After a life of being homeschooled, eleven-year-old Imogene is going to a public middle school. She wants to prove her bravery to her Renaissance Faire-working parents and start her own training as a squire. But things don’t go as planned when Impy falls in with a group of girls who aren’t as nice as they seem. Impy becomes embarrassed about her thrift shop apparel, her family’s unusual lifestyle, and their small, messy apartment. But when she goes along with her new friends to do something mean, she begins to question if she can become the heroic knight—or if she is the dragon in her own story. Fans of Roller Girl and other stories about tweens will enjoy this new title.
Good Night Planet HC – Toon Books brings a tender tale by internationally renowned cartoonist Liniers. Worn out after a long day of jumping in leaves and reading her favorite books, a little girl is ready to go to sleep. But her favorite stuffed animal, Planet, is just getting started! Planet’s night is filled with befriending a dog, gobbling a cookie, taking a leap into the unknown, and revealing the wonders that exist at night, in secret, after their owners close their eyes. This gorgeous and warm-hearted tale is sure to be a favorite for early readers to read and have read to them at bedtime.
