If You Were Night

The Little Tree

Illustrated by JoAnn Adinolfi

"The idea that letting someone go can sometimes be the best way to love them isn’t an easy one to share with children (or parents, for that matter), but Van and Adinolfi do so with grace and aplomb."
-Publishers Weekly (starred review)

In a Village by the Sea

Illustrated by April Chu

"As minimal as the text might initially appear, Muon Van’s debut picture book is as deep as the Sea she references in her title . . . Van and Chu’s paper and ink manifestation of family and history is magnificent to behold. Read it, love it, share it."
