Hazy Bloom and the Tomorrow Power

Jennifer Hamburg, illus. by Jenn Harney. Farrar, Straus and Giroux, $15.99 (176p) ISBN 978-0-374-30494-2
Third grader Hazel “Hazy” Bloom unexpectedly starts having premonitions of future events in this rambunctious series opener. Hazy’s best friend Elizabeth is certain that this is a bona fide superpower, which seems like a distinct possibility after one of Hazy’s visions prevents an allergic classmate from being stung by a bee. Hamburg (Monkey and Duck Quack Up) gives Hazy an appealingly humorous and sympathetic narrative voice, making it easy to readers to identify with her frustrations, whether it’s trying to decode her visions, the mounting trouble they begin to cause, or dealing with annoying classmates and older siblings. Plenty of questions surrounding Hazy’s newfound ability remain, and readers will look forward to seeing what chaos it brings in future books. Final art not seen by PW. Ages 7–10.
