Catherine’s War GN – Harper Alley presents a story based on the true life adventures of a young girl’s experiences in World War II France. Rachel Cohen is a tween who has discovered her passion while living at the Sevres Children’s Home outside of Paris: photography. Like many of the children there, she has not heard from her parents in months, but she loves the people at the school and capturing what she sees in pictures, so she tries not to worry too much about Hitler’s war. As that war comes closer, Rachel must change her name and go into hiding. As Catherine Colin, she is forced to go on the run, but with her camera, she bears witness to her own journey and to the countless heroes whose courage and generosity saved many lives, including her own. The book includes a map and photographs taken by the real Catherine of her wartime experiences. Fans of historical graphic novels such as Persepolis and The Book Thief will enjoy every page.
Runaway Princess GN – Random House Graphic introduces a princess who can’t resist the lure of adventure. Princess Robin, bored of staying quietly and obediently at home, decides to run away and have her own adventures. She wants to explore swamps, meet mermaids and pirates, and get kidnapped, so she embarks on the best adventure of her life. As she travels through the magical landscape of her country, she makes friends and finds the adventures that await. But her parents aren’t quite on board with Robin’s views of princess-ing, so they’re coming to find her and bring her back to the castle, no matter how she feels about it! It’s perfect for fans of Princess in Black and Phoebe and Her Unicorn.
