Down the rabbit hole. Into the woods. Beyond the horizon. The world of children’s books— whether a picture story for the youngest reader or commanding fiction charting the landscape of adolescence—grants entry to a universe of surpassing imaginative achievement. Inside these pages—an enchanted preserve encompassing bedtime tales and memoirs, novels and poetry, documentary accounts of our American experience and of lives beyond our shores, explorations of the new frontiers of science and of visionaries who are shaping solutions for the future—lies an antic, sublime, compelling foray into the broad range of culture.
We intend to take you there full-tilt, into books that will delight, amuse, transfix, shape aspiration, transform world views. Our goal is simple: to offer up an unfolding guide to irresistible reads—books that will keep kids up at night, reading by flashlight under the covers.
