What a night! The moon is full. Kitten is hungry and inquisitive and brave and fast and persistent and unlucky... then lucky!
"The narrative and visual pacing will keep children entranced, and the determined young heroine and her comical quest will win them over." Publishers Weekly
"The rhythmic text and delightful artwork ensure storytime success. Kids will surely applaud this cat's irrepressible spirit." School Library Journal
"[A]rtful in its gracelessness and naivete, just like a kitten. Simply charming." Kirkus Reviews
"'What a night!' Kitten concludes. What a picture book!" The Washington Post
Everybody has a birdday and everybody needsand#160;a birdday book!
This gentle, poetic bedtime story about a little girl and the friendly moon is perfect for fans of Ezra Jack Keats and Kevin Henkes
After a play date in the city, Addy heads home to the country with her family. And through the long drive, the moon seems to be following them closely—Addys faithful guardian and friend.
The comforting sense that the moon is your own personal companion is universal to childhood, and Ida Pearle has depicted it beautifully through her lyrical text and soft, sleepy cut-paper collage illustrations. This is a book that children will ask to hear every night at bedtime.
The Nice Icy Land was crackling with busy-ness. It had taken weeks and a lot of whispery chirps for Tacky the Penguinand#8217;s friends to plan a Perfect Surprise Birdday Party for him on his special hatchday. With songs, presents, cake, fishy ice cream, and surprise entertainment from Iglooslaviaand#8217;s own Twinklewebs the Dance Queen, how could anything go wrong? But itand#8217;s a comedy of errors . . . and all is far from perfect. Luckily, Tackyand#8217;s good cheerand#8212;and his flippity dance movesand#8212;save the day with a flap of his flippers and a tap of his tippywebs. Munsingerand#8217;s adorable, expressive penguin illustrations are the icing on the cake.
