Kid's Book of the Month

Sea Change by Frank Viva

One summer can change your whole life. As soon as school lets out, Eliot's parents send him to the very edge of the world: a fishing village in a remote part of Nova Scotia. And what does the small town of Point Aconi have to offer? Maggots, bullies and grumpy old men. But along the way, Eliot discovers much more - a hidden library, starry nights and a mysterious girl named Mary Beth. Critically acclaimed author and artist Frank Viva (Outstanding in the Rain) brings us this warm, funny and innovatively designed coming-of-age story. See Point Aconi through Eliot's eyes, as he finds that this place he never wanted to visit is becoming a home he doesn't want to leave.

Love isn't just for the cute, the sweet, and the cuddly. Whether you're shy as a baby ostrich, prickly as a tiny porcupine, or messy as a puppy pug, someone loves you no matter what!
