Macmillan Children’s 2017 Book Buzz

Macmillan has a large, rich collection coming out. These were a few that I really want to grab for my collection as soon as I can.

Noisy Night by Mac Barnett and Brian Biggs is like a modern update of Brown Bear, Brown Bear what Do You Hear? with noisy neighbors in the upstairs apartment wondering what’s making that noise. The layout of the book makes it seem you’re climbing up to each apartment to see what’s next.

Jason Chin is continuing his breathtaking non-fiction nature books with the addition of Grand Canyon. Gorgeous.

Diversity, humor and writing inspiration can be found in Cilla Lee-Jenkins: Future Author Extraordinaire by Susan Tan. Lots of great reviews for this one.

Real Friends by Shannon Hale and LeUyen Pham look like it’s in the same ballpark as Smile, Sisters, El Deafo and Sunnyside Up. A graphic novel about friendship. By Shannon Hale, people. Shanon Hale!
