A Fort-Building Time

A Fort-Building Time
Megan Wagner Lloyd

Megan Wagner Lloyd's FORT-BUILDING TIME is out in the world today! Huge congratulations, Megan! "Playful reading fun." - Kirkus

Grab your blankets and pillows! From the creators of Finding Wild, a new picture book that follows the changing of the seasons and is as cozy as a fort.

Winter, spring, summer, fall. Each season brings new materials to make the perfect fort. From leaves to snow, from mud to sand, there is a different fort throughout the year. As a group of friends explore and build through the seasons, they find that every fort they make is a perfect fort.

From the team behind Finding Wild, which Publishers Weekly called "a sparkling debut" and a "whimsical meditation on the idea of wildness," Megan Wagner Lloyd and Abigail Halpin are together again for a portrayal of a classic childhood endeavor that is perfect all year long.

The Nian Monster

The Nian Monster
Andrea Wang

Have you ever given a thought to the ubiquitous dried ramen packets found at groceries and convenience stores everywhere? Andrea Wang has—and of course, she found a story there!

Andrea's nonfiction picture book text MAGIC RAMEN: THE STORY OF THE INVENTION OF INSTANT NOODLES, showis readers the historical context, scientific experimentation, and spirit of determination and charity that led Momofuku Ando to invent instant ramen. It's rich material indeed!

So it should be no surprise that Andrea's NIAN MONSTER editor, Kristin Zelazko, snapped it up (at auction!) for her new employer, Little Bee Books, and found a terrific illustrator to pair with it. Kana Urbanowicz is a Japanese illustrator whose work will bring beautiful details to post-WWII Japan in the pages of the book. It will be her debut, and it's expected to publish in spring 2019. We can't wait!

Congratulations, Andrea!

—Erin
