Books: Zoe’s Room

Buglette Cover Zoe rules as Queen of the Universe—or at least, her room!—in this sweet, funny companion to ZOE GETS READY.

Zoe is the Queen of the whole Universe ... but her favorite place in the Universe is her own room, where she hosts tea parties, builds empires out of blocks, and gazes out upon the stars.

Then her parents announce that her little sister Addie is moving in to Zoe's room. Little sisters aren't good at tea parties (too rude), block-building (too clumsy), and starwatching (just plain too young!). So the Queen's new roommate is a royal pain ... until Zoe discovers that even her smallest subjects can be useful in a storm!

Praise for Zoe's Room
"This picture book quietly, perceptively explores family dynamics in a time of change, the sort of “minor” change that’s huge for a child. Using lighting effects and color beautifully, the expressive ink-and-watercolor illustrations work seamlessly with the simply told story."–Booklist

"Murguia’s dark blue washes set the quiet night tone, and Zoe’s abundant curiosity shines from the top of her crown to the bottom of her stretched tippy-toes."—Kirkus Reviews

"Soft-hued pen-and-ink and watercolor illustrations, beginning and ending with star-studded endpapers, charmingly depict the age-old dilemma of learning to compromise."—School Library Journal
