Johannes, a free dog, lives in an urban park by the sea. His job is to be the Eyes—to see everything that happens within the park and report back to the park’s elders, three ancient Bison. His friends—a seagull, a raccoon, a squirrel, and a pelican—work with him as the Assistant Eyes, observing the humans and other animals who share the park and making sure the Equilibrium is in balance. But changes are afoot. More humans, including Trouble Travelers, arrive in the park. A new building, containing mysterious and hypnotic rectangles, goes up. And then there are the goats—an actual boatload of goats—who appear, along with a shocking revelation that changes Johannes’s view of the world. A story about friendship, beauty, liberation, and running very, very fast, THE EYES AND THE IMPOSSIBLE will make readers of all ages see the world around them in a wholly new way.

SOREN’S SEVENTH SONG de Dave Eggers & Mark Hoffmann

From New York Times bestselling author Dave Eggers comes a deadpan take on creativity and persistence, as told through the eyes of a humpback whale looking for a new song.

Cameron Kids/Abrams, September 2023

Soren, a young humpback whale, loves music, but is tired of the dull, droning, endless songs that are frustratingly popular among the adult whales he knows. He has ideas for better songs: shorter, up-tempo tunes with snare drums and even maracas. Unfortunately, every time he shares his new tunes with his friends, he’s met with less than encouraging feedback and even a bit of discreet whale vomiting. In this upbeat story of resilience and tenacity, Dave Eggers offers readers of all ages essential creative advice: your first drafts are probably terrible.

Dave Eggers is the author of books for readers of all ages, including The Eyes and the Impossible and The Circle, as well as numerous books for young readers, including Her Right FootWhat Can a Citizen Do?, and The Lifters. He is the founder of the independent publishing company McSweeney’s and the cofounder of 826 Valencia, a youth writing center—fronted by a supply store for working pirates—that has inspired dozens of other organizations worldwide.
Mark Hoffmann is an illustrator and a professor of illustration at Montserrat College of Art. His books include IamasaurusPoop, and A Is for Apple, Unless . . ., all published by Cameron Kids. He lives in southern New Hampshire with his wife and son.
