By Singing Light

Pretty much everything here originally appeared at my actual blog: By Singing Light. I particularly focus on upper middle-grade and young adult books. I also enjoy adult genre books, especially speculative fiction.

The New Arrival

The New Arrival - Vanya Nastanlieva

But maybe my favorite picture book this month was the utterly charming The New Arrival by Vanya Nastanlieva. Sam moves into a new home and, wanting a friend, puts up a sign to that effect. But the wind blows the sign away, leaving Sam in despair. The writing was lovely and the illustrations were really beautiful.
