You Broke It! 

Liana Finck

A cartoon of a bird speaking to a chick hatching from an egg with the text "You Broke It!" by Liana Finck.

This collection of classic parental nags are cleverly betrayed by the situations shown, in which it’s made clear that the child knows better. Each scenario is worthy of a giggle, adding a lightheartedness to the inevitable dynamics between parents and children. Cartoonist Liana Finck has created a catharsis for her own childhood memories of knowing better than authority figures, and in doing so, validates young readers with the respect and understanding they deserve.

The Hazelbourne Ladies Motorcycle and Flying Club 

Helen Simonson

A book cover with a title, an illustration of a motorcycle, and a flying plane above a scenic landscape.

It is the summer of 1919 and Constance Haverhill is without prospects. Now that all the men have returned from the front, she has been asked to give up her cottage and her job at the estate she helped run during the war. While she looks for a position as a bookkeeper or—horror—a governess, she’s sent as a lady’s companion to an old family friend who is convalescing at a seaside hotel. Despite having only weeks to find a permanent home, Constance is swept up in the social whirl of Hazelbourne-on-Sea after she rescues the local baronet’s daughter, Poppy Wirrall, from a social faux pas.
