Swallow’s Kiss – Sita Brahmachari and Jane Ray (Pre-order only)

When Blessing finds a lost bag of paper birds she follows a trail of hopes and wishes to the community who made them, in this lyrical, free-verse tale about kindness and friendship.

For young readers age 7 and up.

Swallow's Kiss was edited by Dylan Calder at Pop Up and art directed by Elorine Grant at HarperCollins.
