Two new books from Caldecott Medalist Chris Raschka

Daisy Gets Lost by Chris Raschka
Random House, October 2013
In the sequel to Raschka's Caldecott Medal-winning A Ball for Daisy, Daisy chases after a squirrel and into the forest where she becomes lost! Whatever will Daisy and her owner do? With only two words, luscious colors, expressive brushstrokes, and masterful framing, Raschka tells an emotional story of loss and joy. I can't wait to share this beautiful book with readers of all ages!

When Lions Roar by Robie H. Harris, illustrated by Chris Raschka 
Scholastic, September 2013
Sometimes sounds can be overwhelming, building until it is all too much. But the young protagonist in When Lions Roar knows what to do when this happens, he takes a moment for himself and tells the world to go away. While the world doesn't just disappear, it is easier to handle. Caldecott Medalist Chris Raschka paints fluid, expressive illustrations. Like Harris' text, they deliver emotions with bold yet simple clarity.
