"A beautiful and important book about climate change featuring those who are most affected by it." —Kirkus Reviews, starred review
"Uss' slice of whimsy teleports readers to the smog-filled, congested streets of Los Angeles and give them a hearty appreciation for big, improbable ideas. . . . Colossally cool."—Kirkus Reviews
Chris Barton's nonfiction is praised far and wide, and when he tackles science topics, it tips into full-on fun. (See THE DAY-GLO BROTHERS and his most recent book, WHOOSH!, released just a couple of weeks ago: The starred reviews from Kirkus and PW for the latter include the words "delightful" and "playful," as well as "inspiring" and "necessary.")
So when he tackles a science topic that most people have never heard of or thought about, look out. Prepare to be dazzled with stories about World War I, torpedoes, ships, and camouflage. And prepare to be dazzled by how debut picture book illustrator Victo Ngai shows us how it all looks!
DAZZLE SHIPS is scheduled to come out the fall of next year, believe it or not, thanks to the fantastic team at Lerner, led by Carol Hinz.
