FEATURED PICKS FROM CHILDREN’S BOOKSELLER BRITTANY!
Written by Sabrina Andonegui
Illustrated by Lea Marie Ravotti
Everywhere Macy goes, messy monkeys are there to ruin her day! They’re in her bed when she’s trying to sleep, at the table when she’s eating her cereal, and even hovering over her when she’s in class. These messy monkeys are always making noise, pinching her and squeezing her. What is she going to do? It seems hopeless until she has an idea. She decides to stop and listen to them, and in doing so, she hears what they need. Some want a hug. Others are afraid. And still more just want to know she cares. All they wanted was her attention! When she listens to the monkeys, Macy learns to love and accept each one of them, and then she can finally quiet her mind. Written by Sabrina Andonegui and illustrated by Lea Marie Ravotti, Messy Monkeys is a colorful exploration of a child’s emotions and the way she learns to listen to each one.
Every Night at Midnight

A little lone werewolf prowls the nights on his own until he finds friendship in the most unexpected of places in this whimsical and tender picture book in the spirit of Julie Fogliano’s My Best Friend.
Every night at midnight, Felix turns into a wolf. His hands and feet turn into velvety paws, his senses grow sharper, and he grows a long, furry tail. Felix loves exploring on four legs, and he has the nighttime world to himself. There’s no one else like him.
