Lenny & Lucy by Philip C. Stead and Erin E. Stead

Changes, changes… Change is inevitable, and how we cope with it is ultimately what makes us grow wiser.

When Peter and his faithful dog Harold travel with his dad to their new house deep in the woods, he is unnerved by the possibility of terrible things lurking among the trees and is unable to fall asleep. Instead of letting his fears get the better of him, however, he decides to wrest control of the situation by putting his imagination and creativity to good use, and making himself feel more at home. It also helps that, as it turns out, they aren’t alone in this neck of the woods, after all.

We are huge fans of the Steads’ writing and illustrations, and their ability to create a certain quiet, contemplative atmosphere within their magical book worlds — stepping into each one is a transportative experience that you won’t mind repeating again and again. And if you like A Sick Day for Amos McGee as much as we do, you won’t be disappointed with Lenny & Lucy.
