Fall 2013 Titles on NetGalley!

It's the middle of summer, so it seems a little early to think about fall just yet... but we've got a bumper crop of new books that will be available soon! Here are a couple sneak peeks of our upcoming picture books:

One title that is destined to become a bestselling, award-winning classic is The Man with the Violin, by Kathy Stinson, illustrated by Dušan Petričić. Based on a real event—the experiment by virtuoso violinist Joshua Bell to play in the Washington, D.C. subway station—this picture book tells the story of Dylan, a young boy who wants to stop and listen to the beautiful music. It will also be available as an e-book with read-aloud and animation (on supported devices) this fall.

Another picture book, this one by well-loved author and illustrator Ruth Ohi, is Kenta and the Big Wave. Inspired by the 2011 tsunami in Japan, it is the story of young Kenta and his family, who are evacuated to higher ground as the water rushes in. During their escape, Kenta’s prized soccer ball is swept up by the waves and carried off across the ocean. Will he ever see it again?
