The Return of Teddy
Written by Marcia Choo (Malaysia) and illustrated by Xinyi Yao (China)
Toy knight Teddy goes on an epic adventure to save his friend Cinderella—inspired by a true story of a beloved lost toy.
When Teddy’s best friend, Cinderella, goes missing in the middle of the night, he does what any good knight would do—he sets out to save her. But no matter where he looks, he can’t find her, and he wonders, has he failed his friend? Is he too ordinary to be a knight after all? Then a girl comes looking for her lost teddy, and Teddy realizes he can still be a knight after all—for a new friend. The Return of Teddy celebrates the sweetness of friendship with our most special stuffed animals.

The Happiest Kid
Written by Sarah Bagley Steele, illustrated by Elsa Pui Si Lo and Clarice Yunyi Cai
What’s the happiest kid supposed to do when she wakes up not feeling happy? A reassuring picture book debut about recognizing sadness and talking about big feelings.
Sally is usually the happiest kid. She wakes up every morning with a bright sun shining over her bed, and she knows it’s going to be a good day. But one day she wakes up feeling different and there’s a gloomy cloud hanging over her instead. She doesn’t know why it’s there, but she doesn’t want anyone to see it—not her parents, not her teacher, and not her friends—so she hides it away. But as the day goes on, the cloud grows too big and heavy for her to carry, and Sally must find the courage to let it out. In this sweet story, Sarah Bagley Steele, Elsa Pu Si Lo, and Clarice Cai offer a gentle reminder that everyone feels sad sometimes, and that’s okay.
