Age Level: 6-9

A boy named Leonardo begins to imagine and then to draw a world afar—first a rhinoceros, and then he meets some monkeys, and he always has a friendly elephant at his side. Soon he finds himself in the jungle and carried away by the sheer power of his imagination, seeing the world through his own eyes and making friends along the way. Based on his own childhood, award-winning artist Raúl Colón’s wordless book is about the limitless nature of creativity and imagination.

Orson Blasts Off!

Age Level: 6-9

Join Orson and his sidekick, Weasel, on a hair-raising adventure where they touch the North Pole…watch the eye of a storm wink…and fall through a black hole in outer space. Readers (but maybe not their parents!) will be amazed at what can happen when a creative kid is forced away from his computer screen. Written and illustrated by Raúl Colón, this picture book is filled with delicious word-play and all the fun of a comic book.
