Take one kernel of an idea from the remarkable Kirsten Hall. Add the rich inspiration of Ammi-Joan Paquette’s family history and childhood experience, plus her glorious wordcraft. Mix with the incredible art of Felicita Sala. Bake at Abrams Children’s Books under the supervision of Emma Ledbetter, one of the best picture book editors in the business. 

And what do you get?

ALL FROM A WALNUT, a remarkable, beautiful new picture book about inherited seeds, the stories of trees, and life after death, coming in spring 2022. 

Congratulations, Joan!
