Caitlin has lost her older brother Devon to a tragic incident at the local middle school and she's having a hard time understanding how to feel. Caitlin has Asperger's and things typically seem black and white, but now she is at a loss and her grieving dad isn't any help. When Caitlin reads the definition of closure she decides that is what she needs, but finding it is harder than she expected. (Grades 4-6 School Library Journal)

Children's author and illustrator Mo Willems has a new picture book! In this very funny story, Nanette is sent to the store to buy a baguette. Baguettes are warm and they smell wonderful, so you can probably guess what happens. By the time Nanette arrives home, she has eaten the entire baguette!
