You Are New

By Lucy Knisley

Bestselling Graphic Novelist' s First Picture Book Celebrates the

Wonder of Being New and Being You

A new world is waiting for little ones and the grown-ups who love them in You Are New.

Award-winning author and artist Lucy Knisley has documented and shared her life’s most poignant moments in bestselling graphic novel memoires, from milestone birthdays in French Milk, to marriage in Something New, to parenthood in the upcoming Kid Gloves.

In You Are New, she celebrates the joys of having—and being!—a baby in this timeless celebration of new beginnings and the transformative power of love.

From napping to crying, cuddling to playing, You Are New introduces new experiences with humor, honesty, and unmitigated sweetness.
