In captivating paintings full of movement and transformation, Tamaki follows a young girl through a year or a day as she examines the colors in the world around her. Egg yolks are sunny orange as expected, yet water cupped in her hands isn’t blue like they say. But maybe a blue whale is blue. She doesn’t know, she hasn’t seen one. Playful and philosophical, They Say Blue is a book about color as well as perspective, about the things we can see and the things we can only wonder at. This first picture book from celebrated illustrator Jillian Tamaki will find equal appreciation among kids and collectors.

A young boy wakes up to the sound of the sea, visits his grandfather’s grave after lunch and comes home to a simple family dinner with his family, but all the while his mind strays to his father digging for coal deep down under the sea.

The ever-present ocean and inevitable pattern of life in a Cape Breton mining town will enthrall children and move adult readers.

A thrilling dramatic narrative of the top-secret Cold War-era spy plane operation that transformed the CIA and brought the U.S. and the Soviet Union to the brink of disaster On May 1, 1960, an American U-2 spy plane was shot down over the Soviet Union just weeks before a peace summit between the two nations. The CIA concocted a cover story for President Eisenhower to deliver, assuring him that no one could have survived a fall from that altitude. And even if pilot Francis Gary Powers had survived, he had been supplied with a poison pin with which to commit suicide. But against all odds, Powers emerged from the wreckage and was seized by the KGB. He confessed to espionage charges, revealing to the world that Eisenhower had just lied to the American people--and to the Soviet Premier. Infuriated, Nikita Khrushchev slammed the door on a rare opening in Cold War relations. In A Brotherhood of Spies, award-winning journalist Monte Reel reveals how the U-2 spy program, principally devised by four men working in secret, upended the Cold War and carved a new mission for the CIA. This secret fraternity, made up of Edwin Land, best known as the inventor of instant photography and the head of Polaroid Corporation; Kelly Johnson, a hard-charging taskmaster from Lockheed; Richard Bissell, the secretive and ambitious spymaster; and ace Air Force flyer Powers, set out to replace yesterday's fallible human spies with tomorrow's undetectable eye in the sky. Their clandestine successes and all-too-public failures make this brilliantly reported account a true-life thriller with the highest stakes and tragic repercussions.

Kim Fitzgerald-Trout took to driving with ease--as most children would if their parents would ever let them try. She had to. After all, she and her siblings live in a car. Meet the Fitzgerald-Trouts, a band of four loosely related children living together in a lush tropical island. They take care of themselves. They sleep in their car, bathe in the ocean, eat fish they catch and fruit they pick, and can drive anywhere they need to go--to the school, the laundromat, or the drive-in. If they put their minds to it, the Fitzgerald-Trouts can do anything. Even, they hope, find a real home. Award-winning poet and screenwriter Esta Spalding's exciting middle grade debut establishes a marvelous place where children fend for themselves, and adults only seem to ruin everything. This extraordinary world is brought to vibrant life by Sydney Smith, the celebrated artist behind Sidewalk Flowers.

Described by the New York Times as a "Champion of Gardens in New York," Betsy Pinover Schiff has been photographing urban plantings and chronicling the "greening" of the city for nearly a decade. Once limited to private spaces and elite neighborhoods, these plantings now proliferate throughout the boroughs, enhancing the streetscape throughout the city. Sidewalk Gardens of New York presents the range of possibilities- tree wells, planters and flowering baskets, lush medians that mitigate the frenzy of the street; plazas and pocket parks offering respite to pedestrians; building plantings that create a transition between public and private; community gardens; and the major parks and gardens that are newly planted along the waterfront. Informative text by horticulturalist Alicia Whitaker describes strategies for successful planting and garden design in the harsh urban environment. "Just try keeping up with her on West 10th Street between the Avenue of the Americas and Fifth Avenue. The block became a new favorite once she realized how many trees and shrubs and flowers had been planted there. Another new favorite is on Bainbridge Street in the Bedford-Stuyvesant section of Brooklyn, a block with front-yard gardens and planters and well-tended tree wells. "I think I've walked every street in Manhattan and well beyond into the other boroughs," Schiff said." --The New York Times, August 15, 2015
