Heartbreak and hope exist together in this remarkable graphic novel about growing up in a refugee camp, as told by a Somali refugee to the Newbery Honor-winning creator of Roller Girl.

 

Omar and his younger brother, Hassan, have spent most of their lives in Dadaab, a refugee camp in Kenya. Life is hard there: never enough food, achingly dull, and without access to the medical care Omar knows his nonverbal brother needs. So when Omar has the opportunity to go to school, he knows it might be a chance to change their future . . . but it would also mean leaving his brother, the only family member he has left, every day.

 

Heartbreak, hope, and gentle humor exist together in this graphic novel about a childhood spent waiting, and a young man who is able to create a sense of family and home in the most difficult of settings. It's an intimate, important, unforgettable look at the day-to-day life of a refugee, as told to New York Times Bestselling author/artist Victoria Jamieson by Omar Mohamed, the Somali man who lived the story.

Max knows a lot about puppies. After all, he's wanted one his whole life! So he's pretty much an expert. Grown-ups will warn you: Puppies are a lot of work. And they're right! Your puppy will need the perfect bed (which she'll never sleep in), the perfect toys (though she prefers playing with shoes and socks), and the perfect treats (she likes those, but she'll also have whatever you're eating). Dogs aren't good listeners like kids are, and they have a lot to learn. So you might have to take her to doggy school. (Her favorite part will probably be recess.) Yup, a puppy is a big responsiblity--but also a lot of fun, a lot of cute, a lot of cuddle, and a lot of love. Full of humor, energy, and warmth, Max Explains Everything: Puppy Expert is the perfect read aloud for animal lovers everywhere.
