One thought on “25 New August Children’s Books to Wake Your Brain Cells

  1. I’m looking forward to reading several of these, including ‘Isaiah Dunn is My Hero’ and ‘Everything Sad is Untrue.’ The cover art for “The Forest of Stars” is SUPER creepy and the cover art for ‘All’s Well that Ends Well’ is kind of creepy too, even though I guess it’s not supposed to be? Those two little girls’ faces and smiles do NOT look natural.
