Favorite Picture Books of 2015

I love reading picture books. I especially love strange, quirky, slightly adult picture books that really make you think. These are my favorite picture books that I read in 2015; most of them were published this year as well. All of them are just strange enough to read out loud to teens during story time, which is one of my favorite things to do at teen programs.
