My Thumb, Hardback (August 2016)
I love my thumb, I truly do. It tastes of pears and carrot stew. It's like a hug, an "I love you." My mom hoped in a year or two there'd be some things that I outgrew, and some I have, but never you. Parents worry themselves silly over thumb sucking, but really, what's the big deal? It's tasty. lt's comforting. But so what?
Safekeeping, Paperback (January 2016)
The news is filled with images of vigilante groups, frenzied looting, and police raids. It seems as if all hell has broken loose. Coming back from volunteering abroad, Radley just wants to get home to Vermont. When her plane lands in New Hampshire, her parents, who always come, day or night, no matter when or where she lands-aren't there.
Brooklyn Bridge, Paperback / softback (November 2011)
From Newbery Medalist Hesse comes her first novel in more than five years--a powerfully evocative and accessible family story, set in Brooklyn at the turn of the 20th century, by turns serious, funny, and with a touch of magical realism. Includes a full-color spread. Illustrations.
