A Moose That Says Moo!

From jump-roping skunks to book-reading sharks, the animals in this girl’s make-believe zoo will do whatever she wants. Messing with nature is fun at first, until we see how hilariously wrong things go. Oinking otters! Picketing ground hogs! Stage-crashing pigs! What could be next? With deadpan text and eye-popping art, this raucous picture book builds gleefully to a riot of craziness that brings the whole fantasy tumbling down—in a comedic warning against imaginary menageries that kids will find hilarious.

“This one is as much fun as it sounds, and it will find a regular spot in the storytime rotation.” – Booklist

“In this debut picture book, a little girl imagines a zoo with no cages and an assortment of uniquely talented animals.” – School Library Journal

* ”Infectious good fun.” – Kirkus Reviews, starred review

Monkey and Duck Quack Up

Monkey’s eager, Duck’s laid-back.
Together, do they have the knack

to be a winning rhyming team
and satisfy a monkey’s dream?

Turn the page and try your luck.
See if you can out-rhyme Duck!

“Younger listeners will enjoy completing Monkey’s unfinished verses within the story, and slightly older children will be spurred to create their own lists of rhyming words.” — Booklist

“With a three-day cruise on the line as a prize, Monkey drafts his friend Duck to participate in a rhyming contest . . . bright bold artwork . . . serious read-aloud potential.” — Publishers Weekly

“A solid choice for rhyming play.” — Kirkus

Billy Bloo is Stuck in Goo

Billy Bloo is stuck in goo.
Who will help him, tell me who?
Who’ll unstick him from this goo?
Would you?

With madcap mania,
a troupe of merry volunteers
attempt to rescue poor Billy Bloo,
only to find themselves stuck in goo too!
Oh, what to do?
This spry, slapstick comedy of errors
will have you rolling with laughter
(but hopefully not into any goo!).
