2016 Newbery Medal. 2016 Coretta Scott King Illustrator Honor, 2016 Caldecott Honor. Commissioned by Children’s Theatre of Charlotte, Premiered, October 2018 One Sunday morning, CJ and his Nana set out in the rain on their weekly bus ride across town. Along the way, CJ wonders why they don't own a car, or headphones, or an iPad like his friends. Most of all he wishes they didn't have to journey to the scary last stop on Market Street. Their trip through the bustling city becomes an exciting magical adventure which helps CJ solve a mysterious riddle, make unexpected special friends -- including Mumford, The Dragon, and discover a wonderful new kind of beauty.
