On the Spot, by Amy Krouse Rosenthal and Lea Redmond

Billed as “a book you don’t just read, you play,” this is cleverly designed to inspire children to create a rebus with reusable stickers or three-dimensional objects. Enjoyable for all ages.

 Blue Sky White Stars, by Sarvinder Naberhaus

 Into the Water, by Paula Hawkins

In her second thriller, Hawkins (The Girl on the Train, 2015) returns to the rotating-narration style of her breakout debut, giving voice to an even broader cast this time, and readers will see shades of Girl’ s Rachel in Jules.
