Nimona is an impulsive young shapeshifter with a knack for villainy. Lord Ballister Blackheart is a villain with a vendetta. As sidekick and supervillain, Nimona and Lord Blackheart are about to wreak some serious havoc. Their mission: prove to the kingdom that Sir Ambrosius Goldenloin and his buddies at the Institution of Law Enforcement and Heroics aren't the heroes everyone thinks they are. But as small acts of mischief escalate into a vicious battle, Lord Blackheart realizes that Nimona's powers are as murky and mysterious as her past. And her unpredictable wild side might be more dangerous than he is willing to admit.
Nimona by Noelle Stevenson | Official Summer 2015 HarperTeen Cover Roundup | Blog | Epic Reads
Our 10 Favorite Comics and Graphic Novels of the Year | Noelle Stevenson is a treasure. And so was Nimona, her webcomic about the sidekick of a sort-of-supervillainous mad scientist in an offbeat fantasy world where the good guys may not be quite as noble as they seem. Sadly, Nimona ended in September, but the archives are still online and the book will be collected in an upcoming print edition next May. HarperCollins | WIRED.com

The Great War: Stories Inspired by Items From the First World War | April 2015
In a powerful collection, eleven internationally acclaimed writers draw on personal objects to bring the First World War to life for readers young and old. A toy soldier. A butter dish. A compass. Mundane objects, perhaps, but to the remarkable authors in this collection, artifacts such as these have inspired stories that go to the heart of the human experience of World War I. Each author was invited to choose an object that had a connection to the war—a writing kit for David Almond, a helmet for Michael Morpurgo—and use it as the inspiration for an original short story. What results is an extraordinary collection, illustrated throughout by award-winning Jim Kay and featuring photographs of the objects with accounts of their history and the authors’ reasons for selecting them. This unique anthology provides young readers with a personal window into the Great War and the people affected by it, and serves as an invaluable resource for families and teachers alike.
