«La magistral y experta narrativa de Pennypacker revela una profundidad asombrosa para una obra tan breve.»

«Ágil, amena y con unos personajes que te harán creer que el mundo no está perdido. Un 'clásico' ponía en la sinopsis, totalmente de acuerdo. 4/5. Me ha encantado.»
Alternando perspectivas para mostrar os caminhos paralelos dos dois personagens centrais, Pax expõe o desenvolvimento do menino em sua tentativa de enfrentar a ferocidade herdada pelo pai, enquanto a raposa, domesticada, segue o caminho contrário, de explorar sua natureza selvagem. Um romance atemporal e para todas as idades, que aborda relações familiares, a relação do homem com o ambiente e os perigos que carregamos dentro de nós mesmos.
Pax emociona o leitor desde a primeira página. Um mundo repleto de sentimentos em que natureza e humanidade se encontram numa história que celebra a lealdade e o amor.

Waylon has lots of ideas for making life more awesome through science, like teleportation, human gills, and attracting cupcakes by controlling gravity. But it's impossible for him to concentrate on his inventions when he's experiencing his own personal Big Bang.
Arlo Brody is dividing the fourth grade boys into two groups. Waylon would rather be friends with everyone. Well, everyone except the scary new kid, Baxter Boylen.
Waylon's older sister, Neon, is shooting away from the family. He wishes everything would go back to the way it was before she started wearing all black and saying "What's the point?" all the time.
Just when it looks as though Waylon's universe is exploding, something happens to bring it all together again, and it is, without a doubt, One Awesome Thing.
Our favorite worrier is back, and Stuart is about to start third grade. As he makes his way to the first day of school, wearing the worst outfit ever, what could a first-rate worrier do but worry?
Stuart worries about getting stuck in the boys' bathroom and about not having anything to show for show-and-tell, but most of all, about not making any friends. With his cape, though, Stuart is bound to have a day full of wacky adventures."
In the tradition of The Stupids, Meet the Dullards is a clever and irreverent picture book about a comically boring family, from bestselling author Sara Pennypacker and illustrator Daniel Salmieri.
Their home is boring. Their food is plain. Their lives are monotonous. And Mr. and Mrs. Dullard like it that way.
But their children—Blanda, Borely, and Little Dud—have other ideas. . . .
Never has dullness been so hilarious than in this deadpan, subversive tale.

Summer is coming, and Clementine is not ready. She is not ready to start speaking to her father again, because she's still mad at him for eating meat. Instead, she gives him drawings of animals she knows would not want to be somebody's dinner.
Then there is the new baby on the way. Clementine's mom sure doesn't seem ready. She's suddenly crazy about cleaning (Dad says she is nesting), but she doesn't even have a name picked out yet. Clementine just hopes the baby won't be a dud.
What Clementine really isn't ready for is saying good-bye to her third grade teacher. She knows Mr. D'Matz is going to tell her all kinds of things that aren't true. Everything else may be changing around her, but that doesn't mean that Clementine has.
But which is worse, saying good-bye, or not saying good-bye?
There's no place on Earth a flat kid can't go!
Stanley's not the only flat one...
When a flat skull is discovered in Africa, Stanley Lambchop decides to travel there with his brother, Arthur, and their father, George. Maybe studying the skull will give them clues to Stanley's flatness. But once in Africa, the Lambchops are in for more adventure than they bargained for. From lions to zebras to elephants, it's the safari of a lifetime!
Flat Stanley goes north!
Stanley Lambchop and his family are in British Columbia, Canada, for some skiing and winter fun. But when Stanley and his new friend Nick go snowboarding – with Stanley as the snowboard, of course – they take a midair tumble just as the wind picks up … and find themselves floating in an amazing Canadian cross-country journey that might just be Stanley's wildest adventure yet!
Published in the USA as Flat Stanley: The Intrepid Canadian Expedition
Clementine's having a nervous breakdown. The FAMILY MEETING! sign is up in her house, and she just knows she's in trouble for something. Has she been too mean to her little brother? Too sloppy? Eating too much junk food? Try as she might to find out what's on the agenda, her parents won't reveal anything before the meeting.
As far as Clementine is concerned, the agenda should be something like: "We're getting a gorilla." But no, it's something entirely different. "We're talking about a new baby," says her father. "A sibling for you two. What do you think about that?" NO THANKS! is what Clementine thinks. After all, four is the perfect number for a family. There are four sides to a table, not five. Will Clementine learn to make room for one more?
When it comes to tackling third grade, Clementine is at the top of her game-okay, so maybe not all the time. After her teacher announces that the third and fourth graders will be putting on a talent show, Clementine panics. She doesn't sing or dance or play an instrument. She can't even hop with finesse. And as if that didn't make her feel bad enough, her perfect best friend, Margaret, has so many talents, she has to alphabetize them to keep them straight? How can Clementine ever hope to compete?
As the night of the big "Talent-palooza" draws closer, Clementine is desperate for an act, any act. But the unexpected talent she demonstrates at the show surprises everyone-most of all herself.
