I’ve got a review over at the Horn Book of Antoinette Portis’s A New Green Day (Neal Porter Books/Holiday House, April 2020). That review is here.

Below, I’ve some pages from the book. If you read the review, you’ll see that the recto of each spread presents a riddle and the verso, the answer. Three examples of that are presented here, though I highly recommend you find a copy of the book, if possible, to hold in your hands. The page turns are compelling.
