New Kid's Titles!

Some great new titles for the kids have arrived at Librairie D&Q recently...

The newest installment in Maryrose Wood's the Incorrigible Children of Ashton Place saga is here!
The Unseen Guest (the third, following The Mysterious Howling and The Hidden Gallery) follows the exploits of plucky governess Miss Penelope Lumley and her three young charges (Alexander, Beowulf, and Cassiopeia) as they uncover the truth behind new troubles like a runaway ostrich and find themselves smack in the middle of a ghostly séance.


Beautifully illustrated by John Klassen (I Want My Hat Back), the Ashton Place series has been described as "Jane Eyre meets Lemony Snicket" (School Library Journal) and is recommended for ages 8 and up.

Adored children's author Mary-Louise Gay also has a brand-new offering, (another third in a series: the Travels with My Family books, co-authored by her husband David Homel) called Summer in the City! In this one, the family decides to stay close to home and vacation in their own city (which happens to be Montreal, FYI).

A new Mo Willems book is always cause for rejoicing and -deservedly so- his books are always a go-to favorite whenever we're called upon to make recommendations down here at 211.

Kids love that hot dog eatin' pigeon and this time around the bird's got a problem that needs attending to: The Duckling Gets a Cookie!?

Publisher's Weekly called it "a visual tour-de-force". Wired.com said "every picture has something fun to see in it, little details that will have your kids scratching their heads...".

It's Magritte's Marvelous Hat by D.B. Johnson!


Hard to show here, but there are transparent pages in the book that, when turned, affect the two-page spreads surrounding them.

Here's a video that shows a little better what's up:




A great book that both entertains and informs young minds.

Last but not least, the incredible Toon Books imprint has a new offering: The Shark King by R. Kikuo Johnson!

Toon Books are wonderful introductions to both reading and to comics and The Shark King is set in Hawaii and tells the story of Nanaue and the shape-shifting shark-god Kamohoalii.
Beautiful illustrations and a compelling fable that will please young ones from grade two and on.
