The Sandwich Thief By Andre Marois and Patrick Doyan

Marin loves the sandwiches his parents make for him-every day they’re different and more delicious than the last. One morning, someone dares to steal his favourite sandwich: ham-cheddar-kale. Furious, Marin begins a fevered and famished investigation to unmask the thief. The days go by, the suspects multiply and Marin’s sandwiches continue to disappear. This droll, graphic caper is a funny school mystery exploring the high stakes of low blood sugar.

The first in a series, the book’s witty text and graphic illustrations make this funny school mystery perfect for early and advanced readers alike-and for anyone who’s been the victim of lunchtime crime.

Mouse Bird Snake Wolf by David Almond, illustrated by Dave McKean

The gods have created a world – they’ve built mountains, a sea and a sky – and now their days are filled with long naps in the clouds (and tea and cake). That’s until Harry, Sue and little Ben begin to fill the gaps of the world: with a mousy thing, a chirpy thing and a twisty legless thing. As the children’s ideas take shape, the power of their visions proves to be greater than they, or the gods, could ever have imagined.

HARVEY by Herve Bouchard, Illustrated by Janice Nadeau, Translated by Helen Mixter

First ever winner of the Governor General’s Award for both text and illustration

Harvey and his little brother are playing in the slushy streets of early spring when they learn, out of the blue, that their father has died of a heart attack. Everything changes and Harvey’s favorite movie, The Incredible Shrinking Man, suddenly begins to dominate his fantasy life. When relatives try to get him to look at his father in his coffin, Harvey finds himself disappearing.

Brilliantly illustrated, emotionally true and devastatingly sad, this book is a very artful and yet utterly convincing look at the experience of extreme emotional trauma.
