The kids are alright

RESCUING MRS. BIRDLEY, Karl Newson & Ross Collins

On picture books where characters don’t change. Or don’t always change. They just, as one of my writerly pals puts it, reaffirm the truest version of themselves.

I AM A BIRD, Hope Lim & Hyewon Yum
THE BEAR MUST GO ON, Dev Petty & Brandon Todd
SMUG SEAGUL, Maddie Frost
