Cover of Mac Barnett's "Twenty Questions"

Not all questions have answers. Some have more than one answer. And others have endless answers, unfolding out to the edges of the world. In this spare yet expansive narrative, acclaimed author Mac Barnett poses twenty questions both playful and profound. Some make us giggle. Others challenge our assumptions. The result is a quirky, wandering exploration of where the best questions lead--to stories. Intriguing, richly interactive, and brought to vivid life by Caldecott Honor recipient Christian Robinson's bright and whimsical illustrations, Twenty Questions is a charming invitation to speculate without limits and know no bounds. (Ages 4-8)

As long as we have our memories, we will always be together...

She soon realizes that the bond he had with the love of his life is so strong that he will never be lonely, even if he is alone.

An honest and heartwarming story about a beautiful friendship, the place precious memories will always have in our hearts and love after death. For children ages 5 years and up. (Ages 5-9)
