"Groundbreaking and unforgettable."
—Kirkus (starred review)

"This is a powerful, eye-opening graphic novel that will foster empathy and understanding in readers of all ages."
—The Globe and Mail

"In league with Art Spiegelman's Maus and Marjane Satrapi's Persepolis, this is a must-purchase for any teen or adult graphic novel collection."
—School Library Journal (starred review)

From the pen of former Daily Star (Lebanon) reporter Samya Kullab comes this breathtaking and hard-hitting story of one family's struggle to survive in the face of war, displacement, poverty and relocation.

Escape from Syria is a fictionalized account that calls on real-life circumstances and true tales of refugee families to serve as a microcosm of the Syrian uprising and the war and refugee crisis that followed. 

The Plastic Problem

contributing illustrator, The Plastic Problem
written by Rachael Salt
Firefly Books

In 18 bite-sized chapters, Salt walks readers through the invention and globalized creation of plastic, its impacts and uses in our day-today lives, and its importance to the larger global economy. She then examines the how and why of what makes plastic so harmful to our planet and, just in case there was any doubt, Salt reinforces this danger by providing chapters on the planet-choking results of our plastic habit — including the fact that there is almost certainly, plastic floating inside each and every person in the world.

Salt finishes this vital book with a message of hope. All is not lost. We can make changes — both at home and on a global scale.

The Graphic Canon of Crime and Mystery, Volume 1: From Sherlock Holmes to A Clockwork Orange to Jo Nesbø

contributing illustrator, The Graphic Canon of Crime and Mystery, Vol 1 comics anthology
edited by Russ Kick

"Featuring adaptations of famous crime classics, most of which were created specifically for this volume, this work displays a range of absolutely stunning talent. From a relatively straight­forward depiction of the murder scene in Fyodor Dostoyevsky’s Crime and Punishment to a wildly experimental take on Stanley ­Kubrick’s A Clockwork Orange, [Russ Kick] presents a fantastic survey of the literature concerned with criminal activity, as well as a primer on everything possible in the graphic format. ... As an introduction to the crime genre, this edition is second to none." —Library Journal
