You might know Nate Wright. The sixth-grader already is the star of 10 graphic novels and a series of bestselling books. Lincoln Peirce, who just happened to start drawing cartoons when he was in sixth grade, introduces us to the hockey-loving, cat-hating main character of his strip.
Jan Eliot's funny and irreverent Stone Soup follows the saga of an extended, blended family, starring two working-mom sisters living just across the fence from each other. Val and Joan share life with their globe-hopping mother, a middle-school diva, a year-old tomboy, a reclusive teenage boy, a wild preschooler and his new baby sister. And don't forget the husbands: Wally, the ultimate nice guy who steps into his stepdad shoes with grace amid the chaos, and Phil, the motorcycle cop whose toughest duty may not be on the job. Working-parent hassles, preschool tantrums, middle-school angst and the everyday love that glues a family together -- it's all here in Stone Soup.
