In case you haven’t heard, we acquired SHEN’S BOOKS last winter, and we couldn’t be more excited! Shen’s Books published great children’s books emphasizing cultural diversity and tolerance, with a focus on introducing children to the cultures of Asia.
This month, we released the first title under our new Shen’s Books imprint: Summoning the Phoenix: Poems and Prose About Chinese Musical Instruments, and it’s been an amazing journey so far! The title received a starred review from Kirkus Reviews, and author Emily Jiang and illustrator April Chu have been very busy with book events!
There are seven more titles that we have reprinted and plan to release this spring. All will be available starting in mid-May:
Abadeha: The Philippine Cinderella, retold by Myrna J. de la Paz, illustrated by Youshan Tang
Angkat: The Cambodian Cinderella, by Jewell Reinhart Coburn, illustrated by Eddie Flotte
Anklet for a Princess: A Cinderella Story from India, by Lila Mehta, adapted by Meredith Brucker, illustrated by Youshan Tang
Cora Cooks Pancit, by Dorina K. Lazo Gilmore, illustrated by Kristi Valiant
Domítíla: A Cinderella Tale from the Mexican Tradition, adapted by Jewell Reinhart Coburn, illustrated by Connie McLennan
Jouanah: A Hmong Cinderella, by Jewell Reinhart Coburn with Tzexa Cherta Lee, illustrated by Anne Sibley O’Brien
Land of the Morning Calm: Korean Culture Then and Now, by John Stickler, illustrated by Soma Han
We’re looking forward to all of these titles and hope you are too!
