I got a package of books to review from First Second recently. I can say without hesitation after my first read of it that Koko Be Good by Jen Wang is going to be extremely well-received. I absolutely fell in love with the artwork here (and the production values on this book are amazingly good) and the story, while a little thin, has a perfectly proportioned collision between two very different characters that is just a joy to read. (It's the same character, but a different version of the story than this short comic on Wang's website). This book is due out for sale in early September -- I'll have a real review up sometime this month.
