Surprise

This back-to-school season, individuality is in! Nothing makes a splash like being uniquely yourself -- and celebrating what makes you different. From acclaimed authors Zadie Smith and Nick Laird, with art from exciting newcomer Magenta Fox, comes a powerful picture book debut!

Meet Maud: a guinea pig who inexplicably wears a judo suit -- and not everyone understands or approves. When Maud is thrown into a new and confusing situation, it takes brave decisions and serendipitous encounters for her to find her place and embrace her individuality.

THE SURPRISE is an endearing story about the quiet power of being different by New York TImes best-selling author Zadie Smith and award-winning writer Nick Laird, and introduces an exciting debut illustrator, Magenta Fox. Together, they have created a picture book that adults and children alike will treasure.

"[A] delightful tale for little oddballs everywhere." --Entertainment Weekly
