I rep picture books, chapter books, MG and YA novels, and graphic novels for kids of all ages. I have such an eclectic taste in stories that it is easier to share what I am NOT looking for: picture books about death/grief; elder family member losing memory; rhyming picture books; author-only graphic novels; demonic possessions; historical fiction; high fantasy, e.g., Lord of the Rings (or any fantasy traveling to other lands).
