Eyes Wide Open, by Paul Fleischman (2014)

Ages 13-16
Newbery-winning novelist Paul Fleischman turns his attention to the environment, creating an attractive, accessible and straightforward handbook aimed at young teens. He provides not a trite list of easy changes teens can make to “save the earth” but instead issues to readers a call to notice what is happening before our eyes, inform ourselves, and take action, both personally and collectively. 259 more words

Young Adult


Gustave is a hauntingly chilling picture book for children from kindergarten to grade two. The publisher’s website describes this book as funny but I think dark humour is a more appropriate characterization of this 2014 Groundwood publication. 229 more words
