SLJ's picks for the wildest children's books of 2014

The Flat Rabbit by Bardur Oskarsson (Owlkids)

100 Scope Notes, a children's literature blog by School Library Journal, recently compiled a list of seven of 2014's widest children's books. The books were chosen for their inventiveness, boldness, and overall uniqueness. These are definitely not your average picture books!

Their picks:

Jim Curious: A Voyage to the Heart of the Sea by Matthias Picard (Abrams)
The Secret Life of Squirrels by Nancy Rose (Little, Brown)
The Flat Rabbit by Bardur Oskarsson (Owlkids)
This Book Just Ate My Dog! by Richard Byrne (Henry Holt)
Out the Window by Cybele Young (Groundwood Books)
Aviary Wonders Inc. Spring Catalog and Instruction Manual by Kate Samworth (Clarion Books)
What There Is Before There Is Anything There by Liniers (Groundwood Books)

Are there any books you'd add to this list?
