On Sundays, CJ and his grandma always take the bus through the city until they reach their stop on Market Street. Today, though, CJ doesn’t feel like it. Why do they have to wait in the rain? Why don’t they have a car like all his other friends? But CJ’s grandma shows him the beauty his surroundings hold – the soul of the lively city, the music of everyday life and the magic in the people he usually overlooks. LAST STOP ON MARKET STREET won, among other things, the New York Times Notable Children’s Book (2015) and the Newbery Medal (2015). Christian Robinson is a first-time guest at the ilb and will be presenting LAST STOP ON MARKET STREET for the first time internationally. “It’s the warmth of their relationship that will make this book so satisfying, for both young readers and the adults sharing it with them” (Linda Sue Park, The New York Times).
