From award-winning author Sara Pennypacker comes the long-awaited sequel to Pax; this is a gorgeously crafted, utterly compelling novel about chosen families and the healing power of love. A New York Times bestseller!
It’s been a year since Peter and his pet fox, Pax, have seen each other. Once inseparable, they now lead very different lives.
Pax and his mate, Bristle, have welcomed a litter of kits they must protect in a dangerous world. Meanwhile Peter—newly orphaned after the war, racked with guilt and loneliness—leaves his adopted home with Vola to join the Water Warriors, a group of people determined to heal the land from the scars of the war.
When one of Pax's kits falls desperately ill, he turns to the one human he knows he can trust. And no matter how hard Peter tries to harden his broken heart, love keeps finding a way in. Now both boy and fox find themselves on journeys toward home, healing—and each other, once again.
As he did for Pax, Jon Klassen, New York Times bestseller, Caldecott medalist, and two-time Caldecott Honoree, has created stunning jacket and interior illustrations.

A bear searches for his missing hat in the bestselling, multiple award-winning picture book debut of Jon Klassen.
In his bestselling debut picture book, the multiple award-winning Jon Klassen, illustrator of This Is Not My Hat and Sam and Dave Dig a Hole, tells the story of a bear who's hat has gone. And he wants it back. Patiently and politely, he asks the animals he comes across, one by one, whether they have seen it. Each animal says no (some more elaborately than others).

Told completely in dialogue, this quirky, hilarious, read-aloud tale plays out in sly illustrations brimming with visual humour and winks at the reader who will be thrilled to be in on the joke.

Lo único que desea Steve es salvar la vida de su pequeño hermano, pero ¿cuál será el precio a cambio? Descúbrelo en este inolvidable retrato gótico al más puro estilo Coraline.
Para algunos chiquillos, el verano no es sino un soleado periodo de diversión. Pero para Steve es una temporada más de preocupaciones. De angustia por su pequeño hermano recién nacido, quien lucha día a día por sobrevivir; de inquietud por sus padres, titubeantes y devastados ante la perspectiva de un futuro terrible; de insomnio ante la ominosa presencia de un avispero en el tejado de su casa. Así que, cuando la reina de las avispas anida en sus sueños, ofreciéndole allí sanación para su pequeño hermano, Steve mira en el suceso la solución a todos sus males. Lo único que tiene que hacer es aceptar, decir "sí". Pero en esa palabra se esconde gran poder y peligro. Y una vez que se pronuncia, ¿será posible dar marcha atrás?
Acompañado del ilustrador Jon Klassen, el aclamado escritor Kenneth Oppel esculpe una inquietante obra maestra que aborda la problemática de la incapacidad, de los temores y sueños en la búsqueda permanente de una justa diversidad. De lo que, al final, construye y sustenta a una familia.
