Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The gecko doesn't have eyelids, so in order to keep its eyeballs dirt-free the lizard licks them with its tongue.

Some ants keep clean by scrubbing each other with feet that have been dipped in their oily saliva.

The jerboa takes a dust bath!

Time for a Bath is the very young picture book companion to Time to Eat and Time to Sleep by Caldecott-Honor winning duo Steve Jenkins and Robin Page. With Jenkins' masterful and vibrantly colored cut-and-torn paper illustrations paired with an informative yet lively, accessible text, Time for a Bath playfully addresses some of the most bizarre and ironic ways wild animals can bathe. 

Synopsis:

In an innovativeand#160;bedtime book for young readers,and#160;the fresh look ofand#160;Caldecott Honor Medalist Pamela Zagarenski's luminous illustrationsand#160;paired with Mary Logue's poetic andand#160;unadorned languageand#160;frame the very simple-sounding question: does everything in the world go to sleep?and#160;This is aand#160;book certain to give you good dreams!

Synopsis:

2013 Randolph Caldecott Honor Award

In this magical bedtime story, the lyrical narrative echoes a Runaway Bunny and#8211; like cadence: and#8220;Does everything in the world go to sleep?and#8221; the little girl asks. In sincere and imaginative dialogue between a not-at-all sleepy child and understanding parents, the little girl decides and#8220;in a cocoon of sheets, a nest of blankets,and#8221; she is ready to sleep, warm and strong, just like a tiger. The Caldecott Honor artist Pamela Zagarenskiand#8217;s rich, luminous mixed-media paintings effervesce with odd, charming details that nonsleepy children could examine for hours. A rare gem.

Synopsis:

All is calm in old man Fookwireand#8217;s yard until new neighborsand#8212;Little Old Lady Hu and her cat, Muffinsand#8212;move in next door. Muffins is one mean dude! He terrorizes the birds, interrupts Fookwireand#8217;s painting, and ties the squirrelsand#8217; tails together. Fookwire is upset, but not nearly as upset as the squirrels, who devise an ingenious plan to stop Muffins cold. In this hilarious follow-up to Those Darn Squirrels!, the tongue-in-cheek text is perfectly complemented by the quirky, inventive illustrations.
