J GRAPH B BERMUDEZ, A.

Alyssa loves to draw and has a crush on Alejandro. She is in middle school and everything is changing, it is a confusing time. I can not imagine what it was like to be a child in New York city when 9/11 happened, but Alyssa describes everything she is feeling so wonderfully. My parents are divorced too and I remember the struggle of making sure I had what I needed at each parent’s house. Alyssa captures growing up in a really universal way. 

Baloney and Friends—Going Up!

Baloney and Friends: Going Up! book cover

by Greg Pizzoli

J GRAPH PIZZOLI, G.

Baloney, Peanut, Bizz and Krabbit have different adventures–going camping, finding Baloney’s sneeze, exploring what a ladder does. Baloney, Peanut, and Bizz are happy and excited about stuff, and Krabbit is grumpy. The author also teaches readers how to start their own comics which is great.
